Hello everyone out there in blog land. I'm sorry I haven't blogged recently, and let me tell you why. I fell and sprained my knee - very big ouch. Emergency room, wheelchair, brace, orthopedist, and two weeks later I am walking again, gingerly. And oh yes. they tell me I have arthritis in my right knee. I was warned about growing old. I believe Bette Davis said "growing old ain't for the faint hearted" or something like that. Ah well...life goes on, and I FINALLY feel sharing again.
I've been pretty well cooped up in my apartment for the last two weeks. I can see the building's little garden from my window, but I am mainly experiencing spring right now in my own space, and the lovely thing is my amarylis is in bloom!
I bought the bulb years ago from a very good nursery here in Freeport NY, and it stilll blooms at least once a year. Isn't she pretty?
My sister took me grocery shopping after the orthopedist, and I bought these anemones:
On that table is a picture of me my father took in an old apartment in Detroit, when I was in college, and tall and beautiful and skinny:
OK, OK, I was never TALL tall, although in grade school I was the tallest until 6th grade. Everyone caught up to me in 7th grade, and after that I was among the shortest, and still am. God never let me be 5' tall, just 4'11 3/4". At least I haven't shrunk in my old age.
And years ago my Aunt Sally - remember my Aunt Sally? I did a Christmas show there, invited everyone on the east coast to come, and my blog "Gorgeous Georgina" was taken there. That's Sally's house in the blog. Oh, I did a Thanksgiving blog therre, too, you can read all about it in my older posts, if you're interested. Anyway, years ago my Aunt Sally made a clay piece of Punkin, whom I had to put down a few weeks ago. I have it sitting in the window, in memorial, so I don't miss her so much:
I haven't made anything new in WEEKS, but to help pay all my doctor bills, I am having a 10% off sale on most of my pieces.
