UPDATE : 23 March 2020

A Note From Marie

To my fellow bloggers I am sending my first bulletin regarding my situation, health-wise.

I deeply appreciate the good wishes you have sent me and it is touching to know I'm not forgotten. I have had a very illness-free life so it was a surprise when I had a life-threatening medical emergency necessitating surgery followed by two months in hospital and another 4-5 months under the care of a hospital-in-the-home service. I am improving from day to day. I am pleased to report that I have regained strength in walking (now without aids) and I am becoming more independent and almost well enough to cope with living alone.

My daughter saved my life in so many ways. She refused to give up on me and she nagged and bullied (in the nicest possible way)and persuaded me to believe the fight was worth fighting. She lives in the same street only a minute or two away if help is needed.

My problems melt into insignificance with the pandemic now affecting the lives of every person living on the planet. I wish you all a safe journey through the mayhem of life changing rules and the attack on the economy.

A big thank you to all of you for your thoughtfulness and good wishes.

From Marie aka Ozstuff

Three Muses - Book

Books are nearly always among the gifts in our family at Christmas time.   An afternoon spent in a library is a special time for me.   I will always be grateful to my teacher from Grades 1 through 7, who instilled in me a fascination with the written word..... and I'll always be grateful to my father, who gifted me with an impish sense of humor.   I put both to use here.  I have to admit I had a bit of fun fashioning this book, naming it and giving the author an unlikely name.   I hope you enjoy my little play on words!
****
Marie has just kindly pointed out to me I've posted this on Monday night instead of Tuesday night.  Yikes!   My daughter and grandson are visiting and things are a bit chaotic at my house.  Coupled with the holiday, I am totally out of sync with what day it is!    I know you all will catch up with me sooner or later!
