More time to do nothing

Now that I'm laid up at home I have more time to do little things - even though it takes me a lot longer to do things because I have to move around so slowly. Anyway, yesterday I made some almond and cinnamon tea cakes and baked them in the silicon heart muffin pan that my mom sent me from America. They turned out delightful so I decided to take a little picture of them - they are displayed on a vintage napkin/serviette that my sister bought for me in Seattle.

And you better believe I enjoyed those tea cakes with a nice hot cup of Masala Chai with a little bit of sugar and milk. Lovely!

One year ago Cam and I moved to Melbourne Australia and to mark this monumental occasion I celebrated by hurting my back, getting a ride to the hospital in an ambulance, and being admitted to the hospital for overnight observation. Long story short - ouch! Cam has been very diligent in helping me around the house and even brought home a lovely bouquet of my favorite flowers - Lilies!! Did you know that I have a tattoo of a lily on my arm? I like them that much.

I'm laying low and trying to get better. I've got lots of time to watch SNL, read some books, and knit. In a few days time I should be well enough to go back to work (bummer).

Here's a pic of my Get Well flowers on our dresser next to a photo that I had printed for Cam for our 3rd wedding anniversary (a couple weeks ago) - the photo was taken a month after we were married (we look so young!).
