We woke this morning to frost on the hilltop and fog lifting from the valley below us. Such a beautiful new day! Glad to have the last six days of surgery side effects behind me!! 🤢 It’s a whole new week and I feel fantastic! My sense of humor is back! 😉
My little grand-girls and their mommy and daddy ran a breast cancer 5K this morning in the rain! Let me tell you what... it was hard not being able to run with them! This knee surgery rehab is no fun! ~ I loved reading what Jillian wrote on her runners bib and that both of my little grand-girls are being raised knowing about breast cancer. I’m always thankful that I’m a survivor but even more-so now. ~ #breastcancersurvivor #lizhurley5k
Going a little stir crazy with my knee healing so Jillian and I pulled out this great embroidery book by @aneelahoey. I had linen scraps, floss, and hoops and we got busy! Such a fun book! ~ The knee news today is I’m doing pretty good! Still elevating and icing and hours upon hours of resting! ~ Having my little helper Jillian here periodically is a great morale booster! ~ #stitchandsewbook #aneelahoey
My darling grand-daughter Jillian has been sooo anxious to be my caretaker after this surgery. She’ll have to go home every morning to do her school but will be back up every afternoon and through the night. I think her Gramps is a little relieved too!! (And my daughter is cooking for us so it’s kind of like vacation! 😉) Jillian is amazing and I’m so thankful for her help and companionship as I rest, elevate, compression and ice! 😉 #intensepain but #stillsmiling ❤️❤️ Thanks for all the sweet well wishes! #meniscustear @drcantrell
When you’re scheduled for knee surgery and stairs aren’t going to be possible for quite some time... you set up a sewing space in the guest bedroom! #tomorrowistheday #meniscussurgery
This was always a dream for me... a grand-girl sewing on her machine while I’m sewing on mine!! Some one-on-one with this little one today (her big sissy’s turn next week!). Rosetta’s confidence in her sewing skyrocketed after she won her very own Janome sewing machine. It makes this Gram’s heart so happy! @janomeamerica #ignorethemessinthebackground #ineedtoorganizemyfabricpiles

I treated myself to Reese Witherspoon’s book #whiskeyinateacup and my favorite page in the whole book is this one!
I’m kind of blown away by the vivid colors in my flower beds this balmy October. I’m loving every minute of this warm, humid weather!
