We are finally packing for our move to the mountains. Seems strange not to already be there, but we have been delayed due to my physical therapy appointments. Most of you know that I had total shoulder replacement in late April.....It has been a breeze...up until now. The physical therapy has been kicked up a notch which translates to painful.

To give you a visual 

The painful area for me is my arm. They promise the pain will go away in another month or so.....so  I am charging ahead. Physical therapy will continue in Colorado.

To those that don’t know, we are fortunate enough to be able to leave the Texas heat behind and spend the summer high in the San Juan mountains of Colorado in an idyllic tiny town with a huge lake, beautiful river and 14,000 foot peaks all around. Oh and full of a whole slew of good friends.

Looking back over some recent pictures, I don’t think I shared with you all of our attempts at replicating masterpieces. 

Leave it to my creative sister Polly to outdo me with her rendition of Frida..

Only fair to show you what Polly really looks like.
Looking forward to posting more when we arrive Colorado....not to mention catch up with my fellow bloggers!

Once upon a time I bought these colorful cotten dinner napkins....but over the years we didn’t use them very often.

So I repurposed them into something I am using almost daily. I find that I (make that we) are venturing out the door more and more. We both wear masks....Tom has some that look a wee bit more masculine...and we always have hand sanitizer with us. Don’t look too closely...I haven’t sewn in a very long time.
I am not fond of wearing these but will continue to do so. Trying to find something positive.... I have discovered they hide your wrinkles.
We are packing to make our annual move to the mountains, where I will continue my physical therapy . Hopefully I will have some better pictures to share when we arrive...
