Well maybe I wasn't ...

so lucky after all...I had a medical issue to take care of these last few weeks due to a shattered kneecap !!!ugh!!! still makes me shudder thinking about it , I slipped on some water in my own kitchen.I'm on the mend and mostly don't need my pain pills anymore,!!!YAY!!!
They made the pain go away but left me so sleepy and unable to really concentrate on doing my art, believe me I tried...

But on a lighter note I won a fantastic candle from my sweet friend April Harres Folky Art Candles it is the Pomegranate scented one, simply gorgeous!!!And my dear friend Edna of Plum Thicket Folk Art sent me a box of wonderful china paints ,just because???!!! She is such a dear sweet lady and both these ladies are talented to boot, so please go visit and tell em' I said Hi!!!
Needless to say no update today...Thank you April and Edna and all my friends for the emails.
More later ,See Ya!!!!

Blessings,
Flora

Oh Flora, I'm so sorry!!!!! I know how painful anything to do with the knee's can be.

One thing I know especially well about knees is that you can't screw around with them. Please take special care of yourself sweetie and I hope your pain lessens even more.

Congratulations on the candle and the paints. I don't know anything about china paints. Have you used them before? If so, is there an advantage they have over other paints?

God Bless, and take care,
Meri

O'my Flora,
I know how painful knee surgery can be!
I am so glad you are starting to feel a bit better & don't need those meds anymore. Take care of yourself & dont overdue it.

Oh, yeh!!! I am thrilled you won the candle, and that was so,so sweet of Edna.
She is a wonderful doll artist, I love her style :)

Hugs,
~Diane

Munir , Meri and Diannie!!! Hello and thank you for the visit and for taking the time to comment, it is much appreciated!!! I am doing very well and hope to have a smooth recovery, with all the well wishes and prayers from my sweet friends and family , I can't go wrong!!!!
Diannie yes Edna is an exceptional human being and has been a wonderful positive and encouraging friend since I've met her !!! The china paints are used for porcelain dollmaking, when you are using a kiln,which I was fortunate enough to have been given
free!!!TTYL!!!

Oh Flora! I had no idea you were going through all this!!! I have been away from the computer a lot lately.
So glad to hear you are on the mend and feeling better.
Knee and back pain can be a pain in the buttocks!
Don't over do!!!!

LuLu Kellogg said...

Oh Flora...I was worried about you when I could not find you on Facebook so I popped over here! I am so sorry about your knee! I hope you will take it easy and be on the mend!

I was off Facebook for a little bit because someone hacked into my page and sent out messages that I was in England, had been robbed and needed money to get home. I just opened my Facebook page back up so I hope it won't happen again.

Take it easy my sweet friend!

Love,
LuLu~*xoxo

Flora said...

AWWW!!! Thanks so much dear LuLu!!!
I'm fine,I just got tired of the facebook and all the nasties there!!! I miss seeing and hearing from my friends there but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!!!Plus facebook isn't about watching out for anyone but facebook, case in point : all the hacking and so many stupid changes among many other nasties, so it was time to go, I don't miss it at all.
Thank you sweet LuLu for checking in on me and for the comment too!!!
Blessings,Flora

Flora said...

Flora Dora!
I'm so sorry to hear of your troubles, but glad to hear you're on the mend, and able to put those pain meds aside...take it slow girlfriend; don't rush things as you begin to feel better. Healing bones and especially joints is an endeavor of months of slowly advancing - baby steps my dear. ;)
I bet you'll be swabbing up any water on the floor from now on! You know the one that always gets you is that dropped ice cube you can't find.
Speaking of water, are you getting any of that kind that falls from the sky? Yall's summer has been too long, too hot, and too dry. I hope the fall brings relief...
Wishing you cool rainy days!(but watch the puddles!)

Flora said...

Hello Dana!!!!,
Isn't it funny how we start thinking of people and then we hear from them?
Well you've been on my mind lately because of " RED" sigh...always behind...I'm doing well and thank you so much for the visit, wish there was better news but it's the same old stuff,we did get about one whole day of fabulous moisture, it rained about 2 weeks ago!!!
Some of my friends around Texas say they have had a few days off and on
so we are very grateful for that!!!
I do have a long way to go to recover, thanks again sweetie!!
