Here we are, 8 days post-op. My doc removed part of both meniscus and did some repair work on a ligament. Some bruising is showing up and I still have swelling but nothing like the swelling I had before the surgery. It still hurts to put much weight on my right leg so I'm using either crutches or a walker. The walker is pretty handy; I have a ready seat if my leg gets over tired. All in all, the surgery went well and (I think) I'm doing well with recovery. Thank you, Lord!
Yep, we did it again! We didn't buy out an entire estate but we did go to an estate sale last Saturday and ended up buying a large number of box lots. So, I'm back on the couch surrounded by boxes upon boxes of things that need sorting and tagging. Most items are clean but not everything is "shoppable". For example, take a look at this familiar-looking brother and sister.
The boy looks pretty good but I'm not sure what happened when his sister was getting her eyes painted.
She looks downright possessed. I think I can fix her eyes but this isn't a set that is headed to the shop.
Our annual open house is happening Saturday, December 3. If you live in the North Carolina, southwest Virginia or east Tennessee area, put us on your calendar: the CORNER NEST, Elizabethton, TN. The shop is looking even more beautiful, in its festive dress. Sweet Hubby and I were there until late Sunday night. I was adding to our merchandise, replacing sold items and Hubby was working on the display for one of our booths.
My Hubby and his coworkers yesterday were told that the Exide Battery Plant they work at will be "idled". I guess that's a new term for "closed". The work they do will be transferred to one of the other plants over the next 12 to 18 months. The department Hubby works in has an unknown future. Decisions will be made within the next 90 days; we have no idea what that means. Could be that their jobs will be closing out earlier, maybe later, maybe never. Please pray, not just for us, but for all the over 400 families that will be affected.
