Wow! It's been a week and I've been thinking the color Green for a long time! This is my weekly contribution to Steph's blogging about colors game.
Since I knew I was scheduled to have surgery on Wednesday last week, I tried to do a ton of planning ahead. I made chicken soup, homemade chicken pot pies and spaghetti sauce for the freezer. Baked chocolate chip cookies for my kids lunches. Stocked my pantry so my family could take care of me: puddings, oatmeal, yogurt, staples, etc. Pretty much in that order! Got some new pj dresses - soft and feminine kinds. Asked about any upcoming school projects and tried to anticipate what might be needed. Bought a wedding gift but knew there was a chance I wouldn't make that wedding...which I didn't. :( And I bought some birthday cards.
My final "big" thing to do was to take a nice long walk in the woods...just for me. My doctor warned that I would fatigue easily and would need to take things slowly after surgery. Anticipating that it might be several weeks before I could get back out and do my walk, I grabbed my pepper spray, cell phone and camera. As I stepped into the woods I realized it would be very cathartic for me, and then I thought of Steph! :)
While being a good girl and relaxing on the couch so I can heal on the inside, I am playing with my computer. It's amazing what this thing can do! We've had this MAC for a few years and I am still learning about features and tools. Hope you enjoy my contribution today. Come walk with me through the woods below...
