BETTER YEAR

Image
Hi,
   It has been a really tough year, what with the torn rotatercuff surgery and the the spiral fracture of my femur which has put me in a wheelchair . I am finally learning to walk again with a walker..it hurts but no pain no gain.
   Started working on my painting

I'm  not sure what I'm gonna do with the green space . I'm very happy with the sky.  It's rather wild. Also been working on a hooked rug.  
I'm going to spend the night here with 3 of my girls Hailie is at a friends . ......we will have sauerkraut and pork for good luck as we watch the ball drop with my fur babies in the comfort of my home   safe
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS

French Onion Soup

Image
1 large onion, yellow or red (I used yellow)
2 thick slices of French bread
3 slices swiss cheese
1/4 tsp. black pepper
3 C. good beef broth
pinch of salt
1 bay leaf
2 T. butter

Melt the butter over med. high heat in a med. size pot. Peel and quarter the onion then thinly slice it. Place the onion in the melted butter, add a pinch of salt and cook, stirring occasionally till caramelized, about 8 - 10 minutes. Add the beef broth, pepper and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes. Meanwhile heat the broiler to high and toast both sides of the French bread. Once toasted, set aside. Remove the bay leaf and ladle the soup into oven proof crocks. Place the bread on top of the soup then top each crock with 1 1/2 slices of the cheese. Place the crocks on a baking sheet and place under the broiler for 3-4 minutes until cheese is bubbly and begins to lightly brown. Remove and serve. This recipe is for 2 servings.

LIFE HAS A WAY OF HUMBLING YOU.
    ever since my accident I have learned to never take anything for granted.. Things you did last year are much harder this year and have to be done differently, and take a lot longer but you can find an alternant way of doing them.  I have to endure the pain and try to strenthen my legs so I can move smoothly with the walker so eventually, hopfully without it. God is on my side so maybe it will happen.  PRAYING
HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pretty Peppermint Bark

Pretty Peppermint BarkWRITTEN BYlovefromtheoven, on Nov 06, 2016 1 16oz Package Vanilla Candiquik (or vanilla Wilton Melts or almond bark) 2-4 tsps pure peppermint extract 6 oz Wilton Candy Melts Red 6 oz Wilton Candy Melts Green DIRECTIONS: To make your peppermint bark, you will start by melting your Candiquik, vanilla candy coating or almond bark according to the directions on the package. Three different colors of candy coating works well, but you could use two colors or go for four colors, this is more of an idea than a specific recipe. You can add one teaspoon of peppermint flavor to each color after melting, or simply add 2-4 teaspoons of peppermint extract to the vanilla. The fun of this candy bark comes from the swirling of your different colored candy melts together, and then sprinkling it with a variety of seasonal sprinkles and candies. The sky is the limit as to what you use for your toppings. When you have all of your ingredients ready, line a baking sheet with parchment…

Light at the end of Tunnel

I got the word that I can finally weight bear and learn to walk again with the use of a walker...they said it will be slow going but I have hope that it is quicker
......waiting for the thearpist to come today to give her the new script.   

Have a good day everyone

TODAY IS THE DAY

Today at 2:00 I find out if I can put weight on my left leg and start to gradually get out of this wheelchair.......It has been quite a while since Aug 23th......I hope it is good news.  I have been sick the last 5 days and I think it was from not taking pain pills and them leaving my  body ...nasyt feeling ..but pain is less and pill free .
Wish me luck

HOPEFUL!!

WELL, I am hopeful that on Thursday when I see the doctor that he will give me some weight bearing. I am really tired of the wheel chair and ready to try walking again. I know it will be a slow process and require much thearpy. I AM READY.. the pain is down to a level I can handle except when the left leg cramps up then it really hurts  so I am praying for good news  suzi

Missing

Hi,
I have really been missing. I broke my femur and was  in rehab center for a month an a half. Still non weigh bearing on left leg. Have not felt like doing much of anything., the pain was overwhelming. 
Hopefully I will get back to normal soon. 

miss all and have a great day
