All of a sudden

When I was out yesterday, I noticed that the trees seemed to have changed color overnight. The day before they were green and some were brown and then all of a sudden you could see bursts of fall colors everywhere you looked. These are just a few of the trees in my neighborhood. The middle island will soon be filled with bright yellow trees. I do so love the fall colors.

I am happy to report that both the surgeon and my physical therapist are very happy with my progress. I am farther along than they would have expected. My sling is gone and I was told I could drive but to start slowly. No three hour trips for me! At least not with me driving. But perhaps I can visit a local quilt shop soon? Unfortunately, I haven't yet been able to sleep in my bed. My shoulder still needs the support of my favorite chair and pillows. Good thing it is so comfy!

 As my friend pointed out when we were getting out fall decorations, "You don't even like Halloween!" I told her it was the holiday but I do like the decorations. Who doesn't smile at a happy jack-o-lantern? I do and enjoy seeing the jack-o-lanterns I have around the house.

His hat is a little askew. I was going to fix it but thought he looked cute. 

Love the look of a field of pumpkins. 

Aren't they cute?

I sure hope you have a day filled with smiles and bright colors!


  1. The leaves seemed to have changed overnight here too! I just hope today's rain and wind doesn't take them all down!

  2. My husband had Rotator Cuff surgery some years back. Getting him comfortable was quite a feat! We finally brought in our portable hammock into our bedroom - he was able to sleep fine on that - the only thing was keeping him warm! I am glad your progress is going so well! Do that therapy! It makes all the difference! Love your Fall decorations :)

  3. Nancy I am so glad you are doing well. I just love your pumpkins. Hope you get to visit your quilt store soon.

  4. Glad to hear you got a good report.
    I love fall decorations too.
