A huge Thank you...

...to all who stopped by and all the well wishes for my father. Called home yesterday and glad to hear a good news from Mom that father is doing better and working around the house which suppose to be NOT but he is one who cannot SIT all day! Here is a pic. of my parents i took just before i left. See how old he looks while he is only 66 years old. The little girl is the daugter of my youngest brother. Really hope father is on to recovery. I´ve taken lots of pics but not yet sorted out, will share some later. ((all pics can be enlarge))


The first weekend when i got back here has been off to a friend´s son birthday at the mainland. Back home with the last ferry in the evening...


...and the next day off to another friend´s birthday celebration but without the kids.
One of our friends turned 50..Abraham! The next in line is hubby this coming April!


From the birthday party, we went to another island-Terschelling for hubby as he has to follow a course. It is smaller than Texel and since it is winter..NO activities going on. I slept, read and did a bit of stitching.

Ive started this design during my flight to Hongkong and didn't touch it during my flight back. I had a terrible headache that time i slept for nearly the whole flight-10hours straight and had only waited for the left 2 hours before arriving in Amsterdam. I finished this design but haven't taken a pic of it yet, also completed a couple of small designs for gifts.


Back home thursday evening and then friday been busy preparing for next day's belated birthday celebration for me & our son Chris. Was able to prepared 4 meat dishes plus 3 different tart and then more the next morning before visitors came. Lots of snacks, too busy to think of taking pictures. These were snapshots of hubby whenever he get the chance as he was too busy serving drinks. friends had helped a lot too. Lots came as they were curious about the house and so glad we have enough space now as it is not a weather to go out! Too windy and COLD!!


I hope everyone had a good start of the week.

Hi,
That's sound good that your dad is doing much better!!! It looks like you travel a lot.

Sue said...

Mylene, first, you are a very pretty young lady!

I am happy to hear that your father is doing better; he will perk up after a while. Butch, too, looked very haggard after his surgery for a good while, and he is just starting to get some of his weight back. Your Dad will be fine!

I loved looking at all the photos, the parties, etc. I love your stitched piece, and I don't think I have seen that LHN before.....is it a newer one?

Stephanie said...

Welcome back, Mylene! So glad you got to spend some wonderful time with you parents and sister's family. You look so much like your mother! So glad your father is doing better and I pray that he is on the mend and continues to improve.

Great progress on your LHN piece!

Loraine said...

Hi Mylene! I've had some serious catching up to do on your blog. So much happening in your life. Your house is looking wonderful! Love all the pictures of your trips too. I pray your father is recovering. It's so hard to have our parents get older. I just hate the thought of mine not being around.
Your sampler is really darling too. Hugs to you! Sorry it's been so long. I'm trying to get on a better schedule of reading again. :)

So glad to hear that your father is doing better!!!

You had a really busy time since you arrived back, but I am sure it was great to rest a bit and also to catch up with friends. Must be great to be back to your house also. Here it is also very cold in the mornings and nights, but warm in the middle of the day. One never knows what coat to wear when leaving the house.

Your stitching is lovely, I haven't seen this design before. I also used to stitch at the airport/on the plane. Sometimes the flight attendants look a bit strange when they see me with the fabric and the needle :)

Carol said...

My goodness, you've sure been busy, Mylene! I'm sure it was wonderful to entertain in your newly remodeled home. Happy Belated Birthday to you and your son!

I do hope your dad continues to improve each day--that has to be such a worry for you being far away from him. Love all your photos--you have such a kind and lovely smile in all of them :)
