New stuff and brother update

Quick update on the brother. He called this morning to wish me a belated birthday. He felt bad... I wasn't worried. He's had a bit of a crazy week to say the least. I wasn't worried about a late phone call. I was excited that he called!! He is feeling great!! YEA!! Big sis is very happy!! He is still having fun and taking recovery very seriously. He is eating a lot of spaghetti in a can, shakes, smoothies, and ice cream!! He just sounds so good. One of the best things is that he has quit smoking!! Doctor told him it would take 2 to 3 times longer to heal if he didn't quit.

Well, Mr. Involved wants to be playing cricket and watching rugby... so he has quit, which he says has also helped him feel so much better. He is headed for the beach on Saturday(which is right now, since he is 14 hours ahead in the world!) He's so funny. When he is talking to the Aussie's, he gets the cutest accent... oh, the girl's are gonna love that, if he comes back to the states. He has spoke about trying to figure out a way to get a work visa and stay over there. He absolutely loves everything about Australia, despite the bad things that happened last week. He's a trooper. I wouldn't expect any less from him!! I'm such a proud big sister!!

Well, I found out that we are allowed to paint this one wall in the apartments I'm living in. So, now it is blue... I love it!! I think Wilbur(the fish) likes it too!!! So, much better then boring white!!

Oh and I made this for a little family member that will soon be a big sister!! Mommy is due on Easter and I think the big sister would like a little present when the new arrival gets all the attention. I think it is super cute!! And I crocheted it!! Yea for me!

I'm not sure what to comment on first. He must be doing better if he's eating spaghetti out of a can. I love the sense of adventure and embracing life that you two both hold. Blue is my favorite color, so naturally, I love the wall. And the hat. She is going to be so stylin' and kudos to you for thinking of her.
And to think I thought you couldn't crochet!

Great about your brother! Belated Happy Birthday--hope you had a fabulous day! And the hat is very cute and sparkly--some little girl is going to be thrilled with it! :)
