Thankfully Martha the former host of Color Carnival has graciously been keeping the happy meme alive while I've been recuperating from my surgery next month.
Martha, I can't thank you enough for stepping up and taking care of this while I was away. Unfortunately, my surgery which I had on the 14th of December really knocked me for a loop. I thought for sure, I would be up and running a few days later.
I was in the hospital until the 21st, back to the ER on the 23rd, and today they put a drain in and I will start another round of antibiotics. It has been a long road with more pain than I ever thought possible but I am feeling better and while I am moving slow, getting back to life is very important to me. I've been gone for wayyyy to long. I pray to be happy and healthy next December so that I can make up for this holiday season.
Without further ado, here is my Color Carnival submission. I haven't taken the camera out since before the hospital so I have some slim pickens but this is a photo of some lollipops I saw the end of November. Not the best composition but here it is.
