Getting back to normal

DH has been out of the hospital now for a week, and getting a bit stronger each day. Thank you for the prayers and good wishes, I know that it helped me, and I'm sure that it helped him also. It will be a slow process for him to get completely back to normal, as he has several ongoing health issues, but things are going in a generally upward path. I was hoping to make it to Quiltfest in Jacksonville this weekend, but maybe next year.My daughter's fiance is also an Ernie, as is DH, and he is going through his own health issues right now. He is having more tests today, and I would ask for prayers on his behalf also. Thank you very much.

The strange picture above is what it is like to wake up in Florida for much of the year. Many mornings due to the air-conditioning inside, and the humidity outside, it is a few hours before we can see out of the windows due to the condensation. The other morning there was an odd looking little path, I took a closer look to see what had made the marks on the window, and I could see the path of a little (probably) tree frog as he made his way around my sliding glass door. Now I'm worried to go out that he may fall on my head. Thank goodness DH is improving, as he has volunteered to go out first, just in case, and I'm going to take him up on it. I'm not afraid of small frogs, but I don't want any on my head. If you look closely, I think you'll see some little frog bodies in the trail.
As you can see below, I have managed to do a little sewing. This is the first of three, of my nine patch tops. Now the other small one, and a larger one to do. My basting and quilting of my other six children's quilts is on hold as I have to get a table to set up on the porch to spray baste. Now that DH is recuperating from pneumonia, it won't work to do it on the dining room table and then clean up the sticky, it will need to be done outside.

I'm so glad to hear that Ernie is on the mend; you have had a worrying time, so let's hope that things soon return to 'normal' for you. The quilt looks great, you must be pleased to have it finished.

I'm glad your hubby is on the mend. I see he must have been your quilt holder, as I could see his shoes.

I'm with you, on the tree frogs! Maybe they were just lonely and wanted to come in for some coffee.

Your quilt top looks great! I have a quilt to do too, but just don't have the energy today for it.
be blessed, and prayers go up for both your hubby and future soninlaw.

OH my...I would not want a frog on my head or any other part of my body for that matter. Your nine patch looks great and its good to hear your hubby is doing better. Should be a great Sunday for you!
