Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

Hip Replacement

Hip Replacement
Back on April 6th I had surgery and had my right hip replaced.  After 7 days in the hospital I came home.  The people from our church supplied many meals and much prayer from many people. They give us two gas cards which were a blessing to go back and forth to post op appointments.  My husband always a sweetheart was an excellent help.  Thank you Bob. I had seven weeks of home therapy.  The therapist was Brad both Bob & I really thought he was good. He (Brad) twice brought us asparagus from his garden.   Yummy!   I am now walking most places without the cane.  I do on occasion use the cane outside yet.  I fell on Saturday June 10th.  Thankfully I landed on my left hip.  I was not hurt.  I saw Dr. Hedman, my chiropractor twice and feel quite good and not sore now.I am glad I had it done and all went so well.  Praise God.

DIFFERENT CAR

DIFFERENT CAR
Bob applied for a loan on Feb. 28  The loan was approved on March 1. We went and signed papers .  Then we picked it up the afternoon of March 1,  from Tim and Dianne Pearson here in Trimont.  The car is a 2001 Buick Park Ave.  It has the same engine as our 1992 Buick Park Ave.  We will keep both vehicles for now.  We went to Fairmont on March 2 and got the title transferred and new tags for it.  We plan to call her Blessing  #2.

Sleepless again - Coldest night of the yearso far!

Sleepless and Cold
Can't sleep again. That isn't all bad, because I always get a lot done when I can't sleep.  At 2:40 am the actually temperature was  -22  degrees with a windchill of -40 degrees. Church has been cancelled for today , because of the danger of the extreme cold weather.  Last weekend was our first snow storm.  This weekend starting Friday till Saturday noon we got about 7 inches of snow.  There was a lot of wind also.  Yesterday afternoon. (Saturday)   I was setting in our living room writing Christmas cards.  I got 35 finished.  I looked out the window and there was a tractor with a front end loader cleaning our sidewalks.  It was our mayor, Tom Eckmann.  He cleaned a wide path.  Cameron will still have to do our lower sidewalk and also around to the back door, oh and shovel our steps.  Well I just want to say.  I love the beauty of the snow, but really do not like the extreme COLD.

Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving!
We had a very nice Thanksgiving today.  Es made a green bean casserole and we purchased a pumpkin pie from HyVee yesterday.  We took them with us and went to the Thanksgiving meal at the Covenant church here in Trimont.  The meal was great and enjoyed being with some of our friends from there.  Met a few people we didn't know.  We napped and just relaxed the rest of the day at home.
