My Flip Flops

I really like flip flops, but unfortunately cannot wear them anymore. Today they come in all colors, with bling, in gold,silver and all other colors. They have flowers, interchangeable straps and even teeny tiny ones for toddlers. The sports co's make them for boys and men ( NIKE etc)snd young girls have them in all colors to match their outfits. To me Flip Flops yell---BEACH & SUMMER

My blocks for the Jelly Roll challenge.

Its hard to believe that we have finished 9 blocks already. I've posted very little the past few weeks, I've had a lot on my mind. My DH has a brain tumor and we have finally gotten to the point were he will start his radiation and chemo. He had the surgery at Johns Hopkins but will have all the treatments here in Delaware. He is fortunate in that he takes the chemo by pill. He is a very strong person and is ready for the fight. Back to the blocks, so far I have just used the Jelly Roll and its workiung out fine. I can't wait to get it all together, its been a fun project with a new block to do every 2 weeks.
I will show you the rest tomorrow

I am sorry I forgot to take a before picture, the walkway was small dark red stone with 18" round red pavers. The stones were sooo annoying, always being kicked up and on the grass. It was difficult for mowing and just was not very attractive. Larry always wanted to change it but other things needed to be done. Our middle son Larry who lives in Virginia came up Memorial Day Weekend with his son Anthony and his friend Shaun to do a new walk. My daughter Patricia shoveled and picked up the gravel, about 50 feet, and redistributed it in the back yard along with the round pavers. She really worked hard and did a great job so when the boys came it was ready for them. 4 trips to Home Depot for the wood, 2 and 1/2 days work and I have my very own "Boardwalk" Brandon was a big help and is learning from his Uncle as he did from his Dad. It makes such a big difference, brightens up the whole entrance, so neat and trim. Thanks Guys you did an awesome job and I really appreciate it.

A Long Two Weeks

I'm back! Sure has been a long two weeks. My hubby's surgery on the 14th went extremely well. It helps that he had an awesome Dr--Michael Lim. Surgery on Fri, home on Sun. That was scary. Larry is amazing and has recouperated very well, chomping at the bit to drive, be independent etc. Keep your fingers crossed, we should get biopsy report today

Tue.sday I slipped on some water that was on my wooden floor, did a few stumbles and hit my back on my wood hutch. Ouch, I couldnt get up. Called for help, but no one knew how to get me up without hurting me more. I was soooo embarassed they had to call 911 to help. They had me up in a jiffy. I have two broken ribs on right side, just below the wing on my back. They do nothing for it, it must heal by itself. Boy it takes a long time. I have been reading posts but it has been hard to reach and type, but I am better. Missed talking to you all, but hopefully life calms down a bit
