Catching up on a Sunday

Hey Everybody...the blog has been quiet for awhile due to a lot going on health wise in my life. As you can see from the picture and my posts on Facebook, I am blessed with this lovely fashion boot my husband christened the Stormtrooper boot! One of the multiple things that I have dealt with is an ankle issue, Posterior Tibial Tendonitis and (most likely a tendon tear) that has caused me a great deal of grief and pain and I have tried everything including expensive tennis shoes, inserts and I am  on a medical leave from work. I am doing all that I can to prevent surgery down the road. 

My husband and I have had some fun and laughs with this as the first thing he said when he saw me with the boot is that I looked like a Stormtrooper. He even found a "Prada version of the Stormtrooper  Boot":    

This boot definitely has more class and is much more fashionable. I would rather be wearing it but what can a girl do?!

I have been reading but I have found a few other addictions interests lately....

Downton Abbey has become a favorite show, a superb masterpiece series. I love the show from the acting, the storyline, the beautiful setting and time period and more :

From Wikipedia: "The series is set in the fictional Downton Abbey, the Yorkshire country house of the Earl andCountess of Grantham, and follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants during the reign of King George V

Pinterest is so much fun once you figure out how to set up and add to your virtual pinboards. I have been able to collect a wealth of information on recipes, quotes, how-to tips, crafts, health, books, quotes etc. Your boards are your own creations. It is very addicting but oh so much fun!

I promise to post more about books and hope to get back to regular blogging. I do want to change things up on my blog as I see that blogger has some new changes that I may be able to tap into to upgrade my blog to a new look. I also promise to visit my blogger friends, I miss keeping up with everyone and your comments here. I may have lost some readers but I hope that they come back to visit and I welcome new visitors to my blog!


  1. Ouch! I hope that boot does what it's supposed to!

  2. Bonnie, so sorry you have to wear that boot!! It does look so uncomfortable. I'm glad you are getting reading done and I am addicted to Pinterest too! Get rest and get well soon!

  3. I'm so so sorry about the ankle and that crazy boot!!! Hopefully though by wearing this you can avoid the surgery!

    I'm hopelessly addicted to Downton Abbey too! I have the last two shows to watch. Sounds strange but I don't want to watch them yet....then that will mean having to wait another year for Season 3!

    Pinterest is so much fun! I love it too and have a huge obsession with it!

  4. Sending you lots of good healing thoughts, Bonnie! I sure hope you can avoid surgery and be fully mended soon.

    I love Pinterest and enjoy seeing what you add to your boards.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery!

  5. So happy to see you posting again and that you made some decisions about your health. I pray the boot is the solution and that you will be free of pain. I'm glad that you are enjoying the time off with some newfound interests. :) Keep doing what's best for you. And, welcome back!

  6. I hope that your leg heals up soon! Tendinitis is really not fun (I've been dealing with it for a year in my arm).

  7. Seem everyone is talking about Pinterest! So sorry about the "boot".

  8. I need to see this boot in person! Next week?
    I need to take a look at Pinterest (with all of my extra time!)


Thanks for visiting and sharing a comment!
