Short & Sweet

I literally have hundreds of sweet emails wishing me well that I cannot answer because I still only have the use of my left hand and have not been on the computer.


Please know that I will respond when I am better.


 At least the beach has been gorgeous and I am able to sit and read most days.


I am able to do Instagram (saving my sanity) because I can easily scroll through and comment with just one tap of the finger.


I thought you might get a kick out of the comment I put with today's picture on Instagram - Bobbie of Cottleston Pie has promised not to judge me.


Thank you for all of your loving concern - I hope to be back visiting soon!

Sorry to hear you're still sort of laid up. Looks like you have a lovely spot to enjoy some reading and a great view. Take care.

Kathy said...

Oh good golly, girl, sounds like you could use a little piece of peace around there! I hope you can get out and have some fun time with your visitor.

Susie said...

Carol, I am praying you get back to normal with the use of your hand. Thank goodness you have some pretty things to enjoy while you are getting better. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Deb said...

I do hope you will heal quickly and be able to use that hand soon. I hope you have a lovely visit with your friend. I also hope the dog learned he can't eat certain things :)
Hugs,

Please don't worry about responding to this ~ just wishing you a quick recovery. Love your instagram message ~ it made me smile : ) !

Kelly said...

well, if you're resting your hand because of your surgery, then that's a good thing! That hopefully means that you're closer to having it healed and cured! That comment you left on instagram was hilarious. At least you had a good attitude about things.

I do hope that you feel better soon. Take care.

Debby said...

I have been worried about you. What do the doctor's think about your hand. I love your explanation of the photo.
Oh y you have a lot on your plate. I wish I was closer to help you. I am in a cleaning mode. I have to baby my arms because of the rotator cuff issues. But my hand is hurting too. I kinda stumbed my ring finger. Not bad but way back in December. It stays swollen between the knuckles and it hurts. Also my hand is swollen and hurts. I had it x-rayed in December. I'm sure you don't need to hear my problems when you are suffering.
I bet it is pretty there in your cottage. HUGS and feel better.

All the best Jan

So glad you're taking it easy, Carol!! Best way to heal...take advantage of sitting and reading on that incredibly gorgeous beach!!

Renee said...

It is so hard not to use your hand after the surgery. I am not a good patient at all. Somehow I got through it. Enjoy your beach and reading. At least you can get lots of ideas for things to do when you can use your hand again.

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Funny comment!! Hope you're well on the way to a mend. I loved reading about Steve's paintings a few posts back. Lovely stuff.Do take care!

cynthia lee designs said...

hugs,

Smiling to see a post from you pop up. Thinking of you and wishing your well. Rest that hand and let it get better.

bobbie said...

:))) Don't let her fool you, ladies... she may not be able to type much right now, but she is in FINE form!! The dear lady picked me up at the airport today, and we did nothing but talk non-stop for the next many hours!! It is like we've know each other forever...
I am so blessed that she has offered to be my host for the next 5 days ~ and don't worry; I'm taking good care of she and her wrist!
;)))
For those of you who haven't met her ~ she is as sweet and as dear as her lovely blog is ~

I think about you often. Hope you're back to your normal soon. No need to reply, just concentrate on getting better. Talk later!

Pondside said...

There's a book in the stores - my younger sister gave it to me. It's called Full Catastrophe Living. I haven't read it yet but I look at the title and know it was written for me, right now! Perhaps you'd like to share it.............I feel so badly for you and hope that you will soon have everything back to normal!

Cynthia said...

Thank God for that beach view, sun and beauty around you. It must be hard.

Cindy

Nadia said...

Great photos! Put up more for a hardcore follower like me.

Connie said...

Carol, my heart is with you. I had my right hand in a cast for six weeks . . . believe me you will learn to do many things with your other hand, while in the healing process. It's hard, but soon it will be a memory :)
God bless you . . . listen to your doctor and get well soon.
We love you,
Connie :)

Bridget said...

Get well soon..Don't forget about your medication!

Lindsay said...

Hope you are doing fine. Take enough rest!

Consider It All Joy said...

That instagram post is hysterical Carol, not because of your hand but the dog, really??? I hope he is better!!! Praying for your recovery and loving your neighbors front entry - red chair - yes, love, love!!! Be Well! Blessings, Cindy

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

It's nice to read you can still enjoy the beach and the sun (of which I'm very jealous). Rest and get well soon!

Sally Somervill said...

You are too funny, but I agree - that is one beautiful entry. What a gorgeous beach to recuperate on. Feel better soon.
xo Sally

Jessica@CapeofDreams said...

No one worthwhile will judge you, that is for sure! Take all the time you need to convalesce and do not try to rush your recovery as that might slow it. Enjoy that gorgeous beach!

Warm hug,

I hope you are recovering well from your operation and not getting to frustrated at not being able to do so much. Sarah x

Rue said...

What is it with dogs and tampons?! I've had to change all my bathroom cans to ones with a lid. ugh.

I just saw your house on The Old Painted Cottage! I was so excited for you!! I'll bet that was neat :)

Sue said...

My hands are fine, but my computer is giving me such troubles, I hope not to just crash and never return, so posting everyday is hard lately. But, that is nothing compared to your hand troubles. Loved the photos and Instagram message is too fun and I will go look for it.
