Friday Finish!

 I want to thank everyone for your kind words and prayers. Bill finally came home and he didn't even last a day, he was back in the hospital. In the short time he was gone, they were out of beds, so he was put in the basement, which didn't make me happy. The good news is he is back and doing well so far. He is on lots of meds for now and next week we will start the office visit for his knee and then back to his regular heart doctor for some new problems that need to be addressed. 

It seems this year has not been good for most of us with Covid, missing family and health issues, so we can only take one day at a time and enjoy each moment we have. Yesterday my body finally gave out, my arm is messed up and that threw my back off more, so the added work load is a bit too much. But, I am good enough today to do a few things and hopefully I can get out for a bit tomorrow,  I do need my outdoor time.

Since I was stuck on the bed most of the day, I decided to finish my needle felting project. I decided to make an egg and decorate it with a little scene. Of course what I had in my mind, is not what came about, but it was still fun to do and I learn, what not to do, next time. 

The photo isn't great, it always makes the wool look grainy, but is is much softer looking in person. I didn't want to waste roving, so I made an egg shape form with wool batting and stuffed it with some stuffing, so not a perfect egg shape.

I try to spend my quiet time on the porch, a few minutes of fresh air and a few visitors, always lift my spirits. One day a Juvenile Red Shouldered Hawk was soaring above the field, behind us, and I caught him just as he dove down, into the field.

I was also able to get out for a little shopping therapy. I found a rustic bird house for my yard.

And a sparrow has taken over the tin house, so hoping the others will be occupied soon. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and may health and joy, be with you and your family.

I'm so sorry that you and Bill are having health issues. I hope that soon you are both feeling much better. I like both of the bird houses that you showed. Have a good weekend.

I am very glad you got a little porch time in and were able to make that beautiful egg while getting a little bit of recuperation time. The egg is just adorable. And I hope you continue to strengthen, although when you have a lot of caring to do for others it is hard to get ahead on your own recovery, between worry, chores, and a lack of being able to rest well. What a difficult time. I hope Bill will be able to stay out of the hospital and will feel better.

So very sorry to read of all the medical/health issues, Debbie. Yikes, sounds like poor Bill has been through the wringer and it isn't over for him yet. Your felted egg is adorable. I like the rich bright colors you used. And I love both of your bird houses!!! The birds here always were partial to a couple of gourd bird houses I had but, sadly, they did not survive this past winter. ~Robin~

Happy that Bill is home and hopefully on the mend.
Felted egg is just too sweet.
