Xmas is a'Comin!

What a week it's been! Monday was my visit to the Ortho surgeon; the fracture is almost healed and he wants me to practice walking a little each day. (Ouch! I follow Drs orders, but it makes the fracture ache a little.) He also gave me a pressure sock to help with the swelling, and I think it's helping. Look at this: almost matching feet!!.Well, except for the fact that I still have no ankles on my right foot! Libby says their "kankles". (And no, my right leg & foot are not usually striped like that.)

.

A friend was kind enough to drive me to Kentville that morning; and after my appointment (and a rather awful Chinese buffet lunch!), we went Xmas shopping -- much needed on my end! I got just about everything done and was home by 6:30 pm where I collapsed on top of my packages with a cup of fortifying tea next to me..

.
On Tuesday night -- or I guess I should say Wednesday morning -- my baby came home from uni for Xmas. Lots of hugging and kissing happened! (And I've been noticing that there's an amazing amount of food missing from my cupboards!)

.
Last night, we got our Xmas tree. A friend got it for me from her Dad's tree lot. It's a cute little thing and it smells heavenly. But it's probably the smallest tree I've had since pre- children! Whereas I always choose a tree that's shaped much like me (short but full-bodied), Shirley must have been seeing the "real Me" which is hidden under these love-handles -- still short ... but slim!
.
With any luck, tonight the decorating will happen. I'm anxious to sit in the sweet glow of fairy lights.

It may be slow at my house, but Christmas is a' comin!!

Although I know it probably still hurts like the dickens, your foot looks soooo much better...stripes and all.

Your little trees is shaped perfectly and have great bones for the decorations. It's gonna be magnificent. I just feel it.

Matching feet - an early Christmas gift! Be patient as it heals. The ankle will probably be swollen for a while.

It's certainly looking a whole lot better!

Well, I think maybe the ankle looks a little less swollen. But still - ouch! I see you can still shop, though.
