Two Friends Today

There were happy surprises in the mail today.

One friend sent me a get well card that hit the spot. Pretty much the way I have been feeling.

God are you there?

and a package from far away. ALASKA

There is only one lady in Alaska that makes beautiful cookies like these. I have always wanted to taste one. I get to taste THREE!

This one is a chocolate butter cookie. YUMMY I pinched off a little taste, because I want to admire them for awhile and not just gobble them up. Don't think I have will power girls, I haven't got much appetite.
I have lost 16 pounds. However I do not recommend the diet.
This adorable teapot cookie looks like a butter sugar cookie it is so cute.

This one broke a little so I wasn't sure what it was besides so pretty. So I ate the little round part. YUM.

and as if cookies wasn't enough because they are; she also added 3 wash rags made by a single mom that helps support herself by selling her knitting on line, and another friend who makes home made soap from her own goats milk.  There was a package of instant gourmet coffee lattes and some caramel candies.

and there was even more! A big chunk of their own Alaska smoked salmon. I thought I took a picture of her card it is so cute it says, "Hi Cupcake." The shape I'm in you'll just understand.
Have I lost more months than I thought? Is it Christmas?

Thank you so much Kris. You are so sweet to think of me. I think there is no reason you shouldn't get absolutely rich from "Grandma Tillie's Bakery," those cookies aren't just pretty they are delicious.

Yesterday I think I turned the corner. I had a good day. Physical therapy has been wonderful. All they do is massage me and pack me warm wet towels or ice, and work on the knots and lumps and bumps.
My scapula (shoulder blade) has been stuck up high and wouldn't move. They have loosened it up and I actually let my shoulders drop down from my earlobes for the first time since I fell. It felt so good I just let out a big sigh. The bruises have faded but their are lots of big deep knots and bumps. They rub and press and gently stretch my arm. It is all so wonderful. The exercise will come but right now it is just pain relief and that is a blessed God send. My therapist said to let my right arm and hand rest for one more week. I'm typing with two hands now because one hand is really a nuisance (disobedient brat).
I think in another week I may be well enough to blog a little. I really miss all of you.
But what on Earth am I going to talk about?

Don't be makin' things happen for you to talk about, woman! Relax and be boring for a bit, will ya? ;)

Grandma Tillie's Bakery said...

So happy to see you go the package, and even happier to hear you are doing better! I have been praying for you and thinking about you, hoping you are healing quickly.

BTW, the coffee packets are the Mushroom Coffee I had talked about awhile ago. That stuff is sooo good for you and tasty too! My mom has been on it for a year and she thinks that is why she had no adverse reaction to the chemo...

Be blessed my dear friend.

Karen Deborah said...

Flea you crack me up. That's the whole problem of having something to talk about. I ain't doin nuthin!!!!
Ya'll that have been around a long time remember "Two Boots" when I had two broken ankles and was out in the garden. NOT SO with this. This injury has really flattened me but I am beginning to come back now.
I was turning into a catfish.

Sounds so good you're getting some pain relief through the massage. Lovely!!

And what a bountiful box you got there and a beautiful card! Yes He IS there--sometimes we just can't understand where!

Mail is awesome, but packages are Heaven, aren't they? I'm so sorry I haven't been around to lend a little moral support :-(

I believe you won't have any problem figuring out what to blog about :-)

So glad you had a good therapy day. Sending more prayers your way that your recovery keeps moving in the right direction. :)
