 Our Keera had an accident yesterday with her scooter and has spent the night in hospital.

She is going to be sedated today so the doctors can do a proper examination.  It could not be done last night as she was too upset.  (Very 'delicate' place is injured).

OLD MOO... don't panic.  It sounds like the damage isn't too bad, nothing a couple of stitches won't fix, if necessary.

I got to talk to her last night, and that was very comforting.  She sounded very chirpy and happy.  I'm told she was thoroughly enjoying all the attention from the nurses.

PLEASE comment to KEERA and wish her well!  She will love that.

Now... that painting I did yesterday.

I 'finished' it, then sat down and thought about it.

And dammit!

It was just NOT 'right', so I took it back to the painting table and dicked around with it.

It went from this:

ABOVE:  a Kaleidoscope Heart .... to this:

ABOVE:  A Swipe with Balloon Kisses.  Brylee thought of the Balloon Kisses, so this painting is called Brylee's Garden.  It's not the best photo, taken late last night, so poor lighting.

I had almost decided to wipe all the paint off, let the canvas dry and re-use it another time.

So happy I persevered with it.

Now... today, apart from sitting on my phone waiting to hear how Keera is?

I'm going to do the housework, then take a really good video of the house to show Mum when I get over there. I've not done another 'walk through' video in quite a while, and a few things have changed.  


Once that is done, I will continue cutting out the fabric strips to take with me.  I've not got much left to go on that task.

ABOVE:  Here's a lovely photo of Lacy and Brylee in the new car.


11.08 am:  So this morning we took food up to Lacy, who had not eaten since yesterday.  So far the talk is that Keera is being sedated 'lightly' to check the 'damage'.  Not sure what happens from there, depends on what she needs.

I've done my little video of the house and section, I'm sure I will be the one looking at it all the time while I'm away. 😆😏

I've got corned beef cooking in the crock pot for dinner, it's already starting to smell lovely.

I might see if I can get a better photo of yesterday's painting and replace the one above.  Then once I've had lunch I will get on with fabric strip cutting.

The house is totally spic 'n' span, nothing to do there.

Oh worth noting... NO DOGS BARKING HERE.  


Update on MISS MUPPET:  She's OK.  No major damage, just a small injury that will heal on it's own.

What a relief for everyone.

I can breath better now.

I just made another Kaleidoscope painting, with balloon kisses.  It's very cute.

It was something to do while waiting on news from the Hospital.

Keera is heading home soon, just awaiting discharge papers.  

It's now 12.35 pm, time for some lunch.

ABOVE:  Kaleidoscope #5 with Kisses.  It's so pretty, much nicer in person of course.  😊

It's now 2 pm and I've STILL not had me lunch.  I keep getting distracted.  Derrrr.

8 pm:  Dinner is done, the corned beef was cooked to perfection!  Cut it like it was butter, so soft and moist.
I served it with mashed potatoes and veges. 

I'm thrilled with all I got done today, the new Kaleidoscope with Kisses painting is making me very happy.
It will probably be a few months before I get home from Australia and can varnish it, but that's OK.

The OLD MOO is doing well... looking forward to a visit from my sister Lorraine and her eldest daughter Rowena.  They both live in Brisbane.
I think they are staying in Coffs Harbour for about a week, then when they return to Queensland they will have to go into Quarantine for 2 weeks.  No one is exempt from THAT particular joy!

Now... I'm going to sit back and relax for the remainder of the evening.  Coronation Street is on later... something to look forward to.  Stew just took great delight in telling me ... Coronation Street is not on tonight.  Dammit.

  22. The paintings are amazing......I wish I didn't live so far away so that I could buy one, love otiginal artwork. Best wishes to Miss Keera for a speedy recovery. You take care on that scooter young 'un !! Jane G

  23. Forgot to say.....Lacy, I wear shorts May to October here in Scotland, and people think I'm a bit odd ! I don't care, I like the sun on me legs, even if it is raining too sometimes !!

  24. Hope you are feeling better soon Keera. Another busy weekend at your household. Take care.

  25. Keera! You just about gave me a heart attack. A photo of you clearly lying in a hospital bed! But - you DO look content, so that is a very good thing! I am sorry to hear about your injury! You look very brave and grown up considering the yucky situation. I am glad to hear you will heal on your own and can go home! Yippy! I hope those doctors and nurses gave you tons of attention and yummy snacks while you were there! Be safe of that scooter of yours!
