Hello dear blog friend I am doing a little better today with my back so I thought I would do another little post while I am re cooperating and trying to get back into life!!!!


It is doing this outside

It is snowing like crazy today and with my back out of whack I stayed in and  worked on some Valentines . Got some cards out in the mail and made up some treat bags for my daughters and son in law and my little granddaughter Abby.  I feel accomplished to get this much done with my back still painful.

Then my sweet daughter bought me these two new magazines to read while I am working on getting my back to feeling better.

So I made my favorite tea and had a few extra cut out cookies from my goody bags I made today and I am going to get on the couch heating pad on my back and read these lovelies!!!!!! How is your day going??

  1. What's this? Did I infect you with backache via the internet? I hope not. I'm sorry you are having trouble. It sure does make things a bit more tough-going. Mine was getting better, but today it's been bugging me. Too much to do to sit still and try to treat it right. I'm glad you are. Get well soon. Looks like you are making the most of your "be still" time. How sweet to have magazines brought to you!

    1. Yeah Liz like what the heck!!!! I think you did infect me through the computer!!!! What a weird thing the whole back issue is for me. I have never had back issues and all of a sudden last Saturday night I started to have alot of pain over my lower back and could hardly move. I went to the ER finally around midnight as I could not stand it anymore. They ran alot of Cha Ching Cha Ching test and found nothing. So they sent me home with pain meds and said to follow up with my doctor. So I did since the back was not getting any better and they sent me for an MRI that showed a slip disc and bulging discs so I am starting physical therapy on Tuesday and I am staying hopeful that will help me so I do not have to do anything further. Too crazy. I can hardly sit for very long at the computer etc. so I just lay around and use my ipad to amuse myself. I am glad to hear you are getting better too. This stuff really stops life. I am not someone that likes to lay around so this has been a miserable week for me. I had a lot of plans for the week but had to cancel and just lay around with a heating pad and ice packs. Today it is a little better.

      So no more telling me when you are hurt or sick because somehow it is coming through my computer!!!!!! Hope you are doing better too.

  4. :-) Not as good as yours... I didn't get any mags!
    Today I distressed the 2 pieces I showed on my last blog post. After staring at them for a week... I decided they need a bit of roughing up. Think I will apply a coat of finishing wax as well and then call it a day.
    Here's to you feeling better. Put those feet up and enjoy your tea and magazines.
    Hugs, Gee

  5. What a sweet treat your daughter gave you!! So sorry you are in such pain....I can relate as I have kind of chronic back issues, which are for sure no fun and can really cramp your style. Hope your therapy helps very quickly and you can get back to the things you love. Just recently found your blog and love your decorating style, I added you to my blog list immediately. Those magazines look wonderful, so just use your back as an excuse to lounge and be waited on. Hope you are on the way to complete recovery... Blessings, Linda

  9. So good to hear that you are feeling better.
    Back pain is the worst . . . I get up with it every morning, from an injury 45 years ago.
    I feel blessed that most days after I do my back stretches and warm my muscles, I feel much better.
    I do hope that each day brings you to better health.
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  11. I hope your pain has lessened, Kris. There's no better way to spend a snowy afternoon than with some new reads. Speaking of...I haven't seen the new Cottage Style around here yet. I'm checking after work tomorrow!

    Take care!
