When my husband and I lived in Alaska, we spent the weekends at a cabin we built along the Ninilchik River, within sight of the Mt. Redoubt Volcano and across the waters of the Cook Inlet. I’ve talked about it before. It was a place filled with serenity, and…………an electric palm tree.
We would put the tree up for Christmas, because we were there only during the weekends, and it made us smile. We would turn out the lights, snuggle on the sofa in front of the wood stove, and enjoy the sparkle lights of the tree. I hung tiny, stuffed flamingos from the branches for ornaments.
I tell you this now, because my darling husband just bought me an electric palm tree.
Now THAT’s true love. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. As soon as he plugged it in, I couldn’t stop smiling. And my daughter grabbed the Kermit the Frog that I keep in my kitchen window, and wound his arms and legs around the trunk. PERFECT! You know, sometimes, a palm tree can be better medicine that the one I am taking – Both of them combined? Priceless.
The full knee replacement surgery went well. Today is day six, so the leg is feeling swollen, tender, and various colors of the rainbow – an alien rainbow. Dark purple, bright greens, blues………The body’s way of entertaining itself during the healing process. And I am doing good. I start my Physical Therapy sessions tomorrow, so I am not looking forward to that at all, because I want a few more days of being pampered, waited upon, and spoiled beyond belief. I am a simple woman, with simple tastes – ANY bit of spoiling will do. My husband has been an angel through it all.

The Pixelscrapper Blog Train theme is “A Walk on the Wild Side”. Of course there are a great variety of ideas that suite this theme, and I chose Wild Horses. As you know, we have a few wild horses that we have rescued, so I went with this idea. You can download all of the other designer kits here.
