Loving These Visitors!

Okay, I will stop reading everyone else's blogs for a minute, and post something on my blog! It has been a long four/five weeks - and I have been going stir crazy being cooped up in the house, mostly by myself!!! I have been begging people to come and visit - and have had some response - so that has been wonderful! So here are a few of my diversions, from my recent knee replacement!

The first is my niece Kim and her hubby Tom - who were on their way back driving from Michigan back to California - and graciously stopped in to see us! Kim and I are only four years apart, so she seems a lot like a sister to me! Anyway - here she is with her family! I can't believe the kids have grown so much! And Tom even let me ask him a few photo/scanning/computer questions! Thanks Tom!

Then another day I got a wonderful visit from my "old" friend Melita! We were college friends, and have kept in touch all these years! And we get to see each other at least once a year. She came down to visit me (a couple hours drive, mind you) and even brought lunch along with her! We had a great time catching up on what our families are all doing. And you know with some people it seems like you haven't been apart at all when you get together, well that is the way it is with Melita. She has a gift for making you feel comfortable and loved!

And then one more get together here - this was our Birthday Girls Book Club Meeting - and we had it at my/our house, but the girls brought everything! Wasn't that nice??? My knee had newly been done, so this way I didn't have to travel far! We had read The Glass Castle, which was excellent by the way! So here we are, with my knee and all!

And here is a picture of what I hope to be doing soon - notice the lovely stitch marks on my knee? (should have made them a little bigger, they don't show up too much.... so just click on the picture, then you can see them!)

This group is meeting again tomorrow night - and we are discussing The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society book and we are having the meal together that begins the book, along with Potato Peel Pie, and we are to dress according to the 1940's.... complete with hats. Hmmmm, going to have to put my thinking cap on for this one! So I will have more pictures coming soon!

So there is a little of what we have been up to....... and I have also been taking lots of bird pictures, will put those up some other day.
