Thank You, Lovely People + Have a Great Weekend!

Okay, so...what can I say? I'm totally blown away by your support, warmth, love, and kindness. I never expected to receive such an immense response from my last post about my broken arm adventure.
Reading all those wonderful and thoughtful e-mails made me feel so much better. After days and days indoors I was so amazed at all the well wishes and kind words from all of you, guys!
At this point I wish to express how fortunate, blessed, and proud I am to have "met" all of you, lovely people, through this wonderful blogosphere.

First off, I want to thank all of you so much for giving me such great support when I really needed it.
I'm so excited to be back here and to get CAD going again.
Thank God I am now healed and mended. I dread to think of what could have happened if both my arms were broken. But, all is well that ends well!

On another note, last week, after a long time I could finally go out and...
enjoy some late summer feeling.

I have been living on the outskirts of Blogtown for so long...
I am just trying to catch up on what everyone has been doing. So, how was your summer?

Also, as a way of simply saying thank you for the kind support from you all I have, here's a photo I took recently. It's free to download. (Dimensions 2237 x 1495 pixels.)

Thank you all, you lovely people! I only wish we lived closer so we could meet in real life. xx

Every day I go to blogland and hope to "see" you back. I'm glad you are feeling well and ready to go. These are nice photos. The one with the vase and the hazy background was cool. There are different ways we focus on "just one thing". You have been focusing on restoration and healing, and that is good. I look forward to what you have to share.

It's great to know that you're feeling better! I missed you, Betty. Thanks for the Orange Angel's Trumpet. It's beautiful.

These pics are incredibly warm and they communicate summer perfectly. I went camping this weekend. It was a bit cool at night, and it rained a lot, but that did not put a damper on our fun. We enjoyed every minute of it.
