What's New?

Well, I went on Wednesday for my follow up on my arm, and to get recasted. I am now sporting a really pretty Raven's purple cast (per Jack's request). No surgery needed!!! I am still having some periods of swelling which hurt like crazy, but a little elevation usually helps.

The bad news is that this doctor wants to keep me in this hard cast for 4 weeks, then a removeable brace for a bit after that while I am in physical therapy. He estimates I can go back to work in another 6-8 weeks. I was hoping to be back to work 6 weeks after the breaks. Not so! So, to supplement our income, I've been trying to find a job I can do from home. Not having a lot of luck with that either.

So, I have been working on my garden. I have 4 cucumbers that have sprouted that I just moved outside. My tomato plant is sprouted, but I am keeping that inside for a few more weeks until the temperatures become more consistent. I have plenty of carrots sprouting, and one lettuce, all of which have been moved outside. I planted tulips, gerbera daisies, freesia, and blue anemone the other day in our front garden as well. I don't have a green thumb, so if anything makes it to come back again next year, I will be impressed. If our veggies make it to fruit, I will be really impressed!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter!!
