Me and Colors within me, rise!

Hello!
Hello Everyone! Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? I hope you all did!!
I had a nice Thanksgiving with my hubby's family and friends. It's been two weeks since my last post. And the reason I haven't posted - I'm been sad moody and resting taking care of my leg. But I will be posting more paintings. It's a bit hard to get around with a broken ankle especially the stairs but I managed how to go down and up the stairs carefully. At first, I was a bit scared that I might injure my leg but I managed to do it. I have to wait to 6 weeks to take my cast off and this week the doctor will take off my stitches, ouch! I'm a big baby when it comes to pain! I don't like pain. The day I went to Main which is 6hrs away from home - I was real excited to see Kate and Jeff. Kate is hubby's sister who I dig very much and her boyfriend is a sweetheart. Well Saturday afternoon we decide to go to the beach with the puppies and watch the sunset - unfortunately half of that day did not go well. As I was trying to go over some slippery rocks and seaweed - some how my right foot got caught in drift wood and lost my balance and CRACK my ankle broke in three places. It was the most horrible pain I ever felt. I screamed my head off crying like a little baby. Well, the ambulance arrived and 8 men came and put me on a stretcher board and carried me out walking over large rocks. It was a long way to the ambulance. I was on Morphine so I was loopy loopy. Suddenly my hubby George yells out Maggie Maggie a seal, look a seal! It was the cutest seal I ever seen. And the sunset was beautiful!! Even though I broke my ankle I must say I had a blast in the hospital for two days. And I don't like hospitals but this one was very special because of all the nurses, the EMT and the hippie doctor who operated on my leg was so cool. They were all so kind funny caring sweet. There was a nurse named Lesley who sang a song in Spanish. She was my day nurse. And George was just so beautiful to take care of me during those two days. We goofed around and ate a lot of jello and pudding.
Well, I'm home and event hough I been so grumpy, I haven't lost my sense of humor. I feel better! It's going to be a busy week. I have a gallery show coming in on the 8th of Dec - so I have lots of work to do + more paintings for my itsy Etsy Shop - WITH CHRISTMAS JUST AROUND THE CORNER I WILL BE POSTING A SURPRISE SOON, VERY SOON!!!
