Why hello!

I'm stopping in for just a few minutes to say THANK YOU for the overwhelming well-wishes you sent my way.  I can't tell you how much they meant to me.


I'm very tired, recovering from what should have been an easy surgery -- but of course I don't do anything by halves and things went a little screwy and well, there you go.  The GOOD side of all of this is I became very well acquainted with my stack of library books.  I'm that much further along towards my goal of reading 75 books this year.

Thankfully, I had already written my blog post for tomorrow well in advance and it's been waiting to self-publish, so please do come back tomorrow and enjoy a Button Blog Hop.  I hope to be back on my feet by the weekend, and I'll be calling upon Zack to pull names for the big bead giveaways.


Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.  It won't be forgotten.

    I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better and are taking your time with recovery. No sense in pushing...even when you are feeling "better" it can be misleading so more reading please!!!

  44. I am happy to hear your felling better and are taking the nessessary time to recover. Reading is wonderful way to pass the time. I will be checking back in to see your new blog. Have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter.

  45. I am sorry your recovery isnt going as quickly as you want it too... It is the most difficult thing to wrap your head around... (when you just cant run here and there and "do for yourself!) I think sometimes that is worse than the pain.
    Happy Reading,
    Get well soon!
