Mindful Quote of the Day #20 — Netdancer’s Musings and Photography

“Without giving up hope—that there’s somewhere better to be, that there’s someone better to be—we will never relax with where we are or who we are.” – Pema Chödrön, When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times Mindful Quote of the Day #20- December 30, 2016

ART CREATED BY NATURE

I love gemstones and fossils and I find it fascinating how incredibly old they are and how they were made by nature.

On our travels in Arizona last March we found this museum in a cacti garden somewhere and it was awesome !

These biggies we found in Nogales at the border with Mexico.

Thanks for stopping by !

 

UPDATE

I had my operation on December 1st. Got sent home with a bag of painkillers and I have to say I am surprised in a  good way. All went well and I am wearing a temporary cast that is open cos my arm was swollen, Ill have to wear this 2 weeks and then I’ll get a normal cast.

What did they do ; they sawed through both my bones in my forearm, cut a piece of bone in my hip to put in my arm. The first few days were really painfull but now it is bearable. It was my right arm that needed the operation but they used my left hip to take a bit of bone from.

There are a lot of things I can’t do for a while but I hope to be ok by the beginning of Spring, I can’t wait to start in the garden again !!

As I can’t use my camera I ‘ll have to use old pictures…

I would like to thank you all for your support and good wishes !
