Life at My House

This image of Mosen under our Christmas tree is so artsy and it makes me happy.  Let me tell you, I could use a little "happy" right now!  

Things at Chez Lincoln are not all that fun and happy at the moment!  DH took DS to the orthopedic surgeon today as DS injured his knee at the lacrosse scrimmage on Sat.  Well, things are not looking good for DS.  The knee doc said there is a lot of fluid on the knee but he needs to have an MRI in order to determine exactly what is going on.  None of the choices are conducive to getting back on the lacrosse field quickly.  Poor DS.  He has been looking forward to lacrosse season since last season ended!  He is one of the teams best players and they really missed him on the field on Tuesday when we had our first game.  Needless to say DS is less than thrilled by the prospect that this season may be over before it even begins!  There will be NO living with him if he is not able to play for the season.  YIKES, I may need to get out of the house until season is over!  Please keep him (and us) in your prayers that this will just be minor and that he will be able to play soon!  There are several things it could be and some are better than others.  Please pray!

So here is another photo that I thought was kind of artsy too of Hallie on the cat quilt.  It is on a rocker that used to be my grandmothers so kind of an old one.  I used to rock all the babies in this chair when I nursed them and would put them to sleep or when they woke up in the night.  It was always in the baby's room.  Now the cats have claimed it!  Especially if there is a quilt on it!
My friend, Faith, had asked me for some cat photos as she is painting and wanted to try some cats.  These are 2 of the photos I sent her.  She is VERY creative and her work is amazing.  You all need to see the butterfly wings she is working on for an art quilt she is doing, truly amazing and inspiring!!

There is a give away of an ipod over at cooking by the seat of my pants.  Go and check it out and enter to win one!!

I tried to upload a pic of the U of M string quilt pattern I designed but no luck.  I will have to check with Liz the Whiz and see what format she sent me.  I am just thankful she scans stuff for me, thank you Lizzy!!  Once I figure it out I will post it along with some interesting ideas I would like some feedback for.  It is a sunny day here and is supposed to warm up into the 50's so woot, woot!!  Hope you all have sunshine in your lives today too and remember this by Ralph Waldo Emerson...

"Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing on one's own sunshine".

Aww. It's taken me too long to get back to you after the letter you shared with me, and now you have this on top of everything else. I am so sorry Pam. Of course you are in my prayers. What a huge bummer, and I know there is still a chance to realize that everything might be okay, but sometimes the waiting and anxiety is more than enough stress.

You are right to focus on those kitties, and try to enjoy that sunshine too.
