Wow... how long has it been?

I hadn't realised how long it's been since I blogged here. With my fingers and hands not working properly for months I've pretty much ground to a crawl with emails, blogs, etc.

So... what can I say? Life has been hectic and weird, which seems to be the theme song for 2011 in general. Most of my friends and family have dealt with 'hectic and weird' this year, in one way or another.

My fingers are an ongoing puzzle. I have been to several doctors and have a few left to see in December. They think it's likely a mix of things, some carpel tunnel stuff, but something else on top of that, which makes all the symptoms and test results confusing. I'm not sleeping much - lying down hurts. I'm tired a lot, but have loads of help from hubby who is turning into a good cook. :-) My mom had hip surgery end of Oct and is recovering well. Dad's doing good too...

...and otherwise life has been really quiet. No-one is up to doing much, the price of fuel has risen to a stage where going out is kept to a minimum so I'm not getting many chances to take nice scenic photos. All a bit dull and drab... rather like the weather. November has been warm, but windy and the trees are so confused that a lot of them haven't lost their leaves yet and haven't gone those lovely autumn golds and coppers either.

Strange month in a strange year!


  1. I'm glad to hear your parents are doing well. I hope the doctors can figure out what is going on with your hands and find a way to help you. Have a good weekend! :)

  2. Yes it is a strange year for me too.

    Mugwort tea might be worth a try? Sending you many healing and hug vibes ♥

    Thank you. Hope you have a good weekend and Happy Thanksgiving too.

    Hi Gemel
    Thanks for the idea and healing vibes. HUGS back :-) I'll look mugwort up. I seem to remember my dad using it once years ago.

  4. Healing vibes from this side of the earth, too he he he...glad to hear your parents are doing well and your hubby's been such great help. :-D

    It's also been quite a weird winter here. It's VERY VERY late and it's been very very warm, but at least it's been Winter Wonderland again for the past few days. Hope it stays that way until spring!

    (((Thank you)) for the vibes. :-)

    We are supposed to get snow on the mountains, for the first time I think this year. Last year we had high snow everywhere by now.

    There are plants flowering in our garden!

    Strange weather.
