Hello my Lovelies!

So I'm not going to be doing a lot of cooking for the next couple of weeks. I'm pretty much on couch rest until April 4th (at least). Fortunately I have a lot of backlog. It was a sucessful knee surgery though. They seem to have fixed all the problems, but I can't put hardly any weight on it and I'll be on crutches for a while. Like a LONG while. It also hurts like no pain I've ever had before.

SO let's take care of some old business shall we?

Laurie at Quirky Cupcake gave me a You Make My Day Award. Isn't she so sweet? Seriously check out her blog for a healthy amount of food porn. She consistently makes me want to lick my screen.

SO who am I passing it on to?

Well, I'm passing it on to Marti at Standing Still. She's a super talented potter, has a pissy cat (honestly) and has really been supportive of me.

And I'm passing it on to LIsa at La Mia Cucina. Because she is so super sweet. She's let me know that I'm not a complete idiot for simply standing up and ending up with a massive injury. I just love her.
And to Mrs. W because she's got seriously the most beautiful handwriting I've ever seen and I'm so excited to try her spice packets. And she's super nice too. And it's her birthday. So go check out her website and donate to Shaohannah's Hope, Inc. I would, but I'm fairly drugged up right now. And I'm not aloud to pull out the debit/credit card when I'm drugged.

And I'm passing it on to Pixie who is cute as a button and brings New York to Britain.

And Lisa Rene, because seriously for vegetarian cooking, yes NO bacon, her blog is seriously mouthwatering.
And Mrs. White at Pretty to Think so because her book reviews are spot on and give me loads of ideas. That and she's hillarious.

And to Deb at Taste and Tell who understands how hard it is to find some products when you live in unusual places.

And I Heart Cuppycakes who sent me a prize today and introduced me to an amazing cupcake shipping prototype system that I'll be blogging about tomorrow.

And to my mom because she came down on Monday and stayed through this morning and took really good care of me (and cleaned my house!)

And even though she doesn't have a blog, to my mother in law because she's seriously awesome. She changed my dressing without getting squeemish or anything. And she was super compationate without making me feel like an invalid. (Even though I might qualify right now.)
And to all you lovely people who have wished me such kindness. It's for you too! I'm going back to the couch now.

Wow, thank you, Mary! I've never been given an award before! You are too sweet.

I'm glad your surgery went smoothly. I hope your recovery is quick... and that your drugs kick in so you feel no more knee pain.

Mary, I was wondering how your surgery came out. I'm so glad to hear it came out well. Hope you feel better soon and look forward to reading the "back log". Feel better soon!

Aww, thank you sweetie, hope you get plenty of rest and take good care of yourself.

Thanks for the award - I'm honored!

Mrs. White said...

Yay! Thank you so much, and I hope you'll be up and about soon. But until then...drugs, chased with all the cupcakes you can stomach. :)

Glad you're doing well post-surgery! You are WAY more coherent than I would be hopped up on vico. haha. Thanks for the "award"! Can't wait to see what you create with your fierce prize! ;)

LisaRene said...

I am so glad to hear that you are on the mend. What frustration you must be feeling! Before you know it you will be back on both "knees", better then ever. At least you have your computer and blogging buddies to pass the time :)

How wonderful are you to pass on a "You Make My Day Award" to me! Very sweet of you!

Feel better.
