 Hi Everyone ๐Ÿ’•

Hope you're all well! 

Have I told you lately, how amazing you all are? 

I've been going around to say hi to everyone and I still haven't got to you all yet, sorry, but I will! I wasn't going to post on my blog, until I did, but then I noticed the people that I have said hi to, were coming back to my last post, and checking in on me! Thank you!!!! 

As I said in a comment on Magaly's blog, "You don't realize how much we all touch each others lives!"

Before I go on, I just want to thank Debra -"The Bee Goddess", for educating me. In my last post, I said that yellow jackets were bad bees. I didn't realize that yellow jackets were a type of hornet, not bee. I actually thought hornets were a type of bee too! 

This is actually the 2nd time in 18 years, that yellow jackets have came into my life! And, I have to admit, they were were both blessings in disguise! But, I really don't want to see a swarm of yellow jackets again! LOL! 

Now for the update! On October 5th, I was at the Doctor, who is going to do my surgery. I told him, I have been doing well. The soreness is always there, but I have learned to live with it. And, I know now, what makes me throw-up, or feel sick. We were going to set a date for the surgery, but I had a question for him. Since, I am going under, could he do my hernia as well. He said yes. So, we have delayed the date. Hopefully in January, the latest February, I will be having the operation. Depending how I am and depending on Covid. I have to prepare for this operation, and I will let you know what I am doing soon! The only way I would have to have my gallbladder operation right away, is if I had a severe attack again. 

Having a combined operation, I might be out of commission for about a month! 

I actually finished a painting! I put it as my banner already. 

"Time To Fly"

I also did a small drawing. 
"Embrace How Special You Are"

Big Hugs and Lots Love Love ๐Ÿ’–


  1. I am THRILLED to see a post from you. I have been worrying. Please look after your important self.

  2. Nice to see you back and I love the banner. Hope you're feeling better.

  3. Stay well and strong, and good luck with the OP! Hugs, Valerie

  4. Oh dear Stacy. Wish you all the best and your surgery will improve your health when it happens. Stay strong and prepare well๐Ÿ™❤️
    Love that painting. You always manage to show love and happiness in your work despite everything you are going through. I admire that๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’œ❤️

  5. Well, if you're going under, might as well take care of everything at once. Will keep you in my thoughts.

  6. It's good to hear from you again, glad that you are doing better and at least now know what triggers the pain to occur. Great idea on doing both at the same time! I just love both your new works of Art and the banner one is gorgeous. Take care and keep in touch :)

  7. I am so so glad to see your posting again. I was getting a little bit worried. I will be happy when your operation (s) are over and done with and you dont have to be concerned with illness and pain any more. And your birthday....was...on Sept. 18??? Happy Belated! Mine was on Sept 19. But, a hundred and five years apart ;). Be well Stacy. I love love your crows. Dont ever stop painting them.

  8. Oh, so you're going for a "two-fer," LOL, "two fer the price o' one!" Good idea. In the meantime, stay well and avoid yellow jackets and hornets!

  9. I've been out of the loop lately so I didn't really know what you were talking about until later in this post. OMG! Gallbladder surgery is the worst ever. I had mine after having to go to the ER with pain so bad I thought I was going to burst. I asked the doctor to take my appendix also I spent two weeks out of work and then thought I could go back to work and ended up staying out for a third week. All I can say is that you will be able to paint and draw a whole lot while you're out from work.

  10. So nice to see this post from you and I love "Time To Fly" it's a lovely piece.

    Hoping your surgery preparations go well, and eventually the surgery of course. In the meantime look after yourself, you have a lot of friends in blogland.

    My good wishes.

    All the best Jan

    PS Thank you for the comments on the low carb diabetic blog :)

  11. Please take care of yourself, sending love,

  12. I have missed you so much. YOur surgeries will be fine and then you will feel better. Love your art. You are wonderful too. Say hi to your mom for me. Hope she is well. Hugs N

  13. Hi beautiful. Just sayin' :)

  14. I love the crow with the broom - s/he looks so very happy and a little bit mischievous.
    I had my gallbladder taken out nine years ago, and it was high time. I have been feeling much better after that.

  15. Sorry to hear you have to have surgery. Hope you feel a hundred percent when it's over.
    I love the Halloween baby crow:)
    Take special care. I'll be thinking of you.

  16. You are amazing too, beautiful Stacy! And I agree wholly with you saying "You don't realize how much we all touch each others lives!" and that's why I'm so delighted to see your new paintings. I hope the gallbladder pain stays under control until you can have surgery. Take care, and BIG HUGS!

  17. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.


  18. It is beyond wonderful to see you posting, my sweetest Stacy. The world doesn't feel right when I don't see that you are creating art or doing something to your garden or just telling us about you. I love the expression in the eyes of the witchy crow. And, as you might already know, I find the red details in the second piece just stunning!

    I hope the surgery take care of all the issues the procedure is supposed to. And I wish, I wish, I wish... that the healing period is as short as possible.

    Sending you a basket full of hugs!

  19. love love your banner photo.

    So good that you can get both done at the same time. Wishing you ease of operation and rapid recovery. So good to see a post by you. Love your art.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I'm very grateful! Your words are very special to me! Big Hugs!
