Hello, everyone! I hope your Summer is going well
and that you are looking forward to Autumn as much as I am.

I need to issue an apology. My sweet, loving, well-meaning husband accidentally published a post this morning that was not going to be published until Spring 2014. I had it almost finished and just about ready to publish earlier this year when my Daddy became ill and then passed. By the time all of the trauma and drama of his death subsided, we were well into Summer, I was prepping for my surgery, and it was too late to publish a Spring post. My darling husband just made it seem extra weird, though, by somehow hitting the “publish” key for this Spring post as we embark upon the Autumn months! God love him, he’s a great guy with so many wonderful attributes…but he is officially in the dog house! I’m going to make him write on the chalkboard 1,000 times: I will not play with Alycia’s blog. 🙂 (He was just supposed to be checking my stats!)

I hope to be able to get back to the computer on a full-time basis in a couple of weeks or so when the shoulder brace is removed. I still will not have use of my right arm at that time (that will be several weeks out, still), but I should be able to use my fingers without the apparatus getting in the way.

Thank you so much again for all the cards, prayers, well wishes and gifts!
I hope to visit with you soon!

  1. Spring, Summer, Winter, or Fall…I always find inspiration in your amazing designs. You look great! With those gorgeous legs, I’ll bet most people don’t even notice the sling on your arm. Keep healing and have grace for yourself on this long road to recovery. xxoo, Cherry Kay


  2. Alycia, I am so glad to see your sweet beautiful face.. I have surely thought of you a hundred times these past few weeks…I miss your being on here but I know you need time to heal….You are greatly loved and cared about and mean a lot to all of us out here…Get well quick….
    Much love, Mona


  3. I’m sorry Alycia, but this is just too funny! Oh, to be a fly on your wall when you found out! Take heart, you’ll be blogging before you know it!

  4. What a sweet guy to try to help. My husband would not know how to find my blog, much less access it! Glad to hear from you and that all is progressing well. Behave yourself, so that you will not suffer any set-backs. We miss you and need to have you blogging soon!!



  5. hahahaha! I read that blog post just about 2 minutes ago, and I thought, ahem, this I think is a mistake. Alicia might still be on the meds, but now I see it is the hubby! Oh, too funny. Well, post it again next spring, it was still very pretty to see at any time of the year! Glad to see you have your sense of humor in tact. But still I shudder to think my husband could tinker with my blog. Truly, shudder.


  6. We love that your husband did a oops, so we could see for ourselves that you are doing fine. Glad to hear and see that you are doing well. Look forward to your recovery and your inspirations. Take Care and God Bless:)


  7. Wow, I won’t even let my husband touch my computer, much less get into the dashboard of my blog! Incredibly sweet, he has been so loving and caring, you can’t stay mad at him too long! Get well soon Alycia, you are missed!!


  8. A spring table, that sounds refreshing while we suffer through the dog days of summer. Yep, they are still hanging on. In fact, that’s the title of my upcoming post.
    Glad to see you looking so healthy and pretty, Alycia. ~ Sarah


  9. GEEZ, I am so sorry, I didn’t even know you had surgery! You LOOK wonderful so I guess you are healing well. Don’t be mad at your hubby, at least he is supportive of your blog. Mine just complains when I take pictures:):) XO, Pinky


  10. Don’t you just look wonderful with that big smile on your
    face!! I love it that your husband was trying to help, even if he
    did pull and oops. Hoping for a complete recovery for you sooner
    rather than later!


  11. Well, poor Ramon! It’s not fun being in the dog house. 😦 Maybe you could feel sorry for him just a little bit. And forgive him. Just this once. We’ll enjoy the post again next Spring, so try not to worry too much about it. I’m glad to see you looking so well – on your way to a complete mend. It must be frustrating not being able to type right now. This really was a huge surgery decision, huh? I’m looking forward to having you back in full swing when you get the clear sign from doc. 🙂 Missing your fun-ness!


  12. Well, good for Ramon!

    I thought something was odd in the text but as usual the beauty created and the inspiration that takes over, distracted me from everything else 😉

    And good for Ramon!

    This post-for-2014 (are you crazy or just THAT fantastic? :D) reminds this poem:

    When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
    With a red hat which doesn’t go and doesn’t suit me.
    And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
    And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
    I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
    And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
    And run my stick along the public railings
    And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
    I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
    And pick the flowers in other people’s gardens . . .

    And THEN the lovely finale:

    But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
    So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
    When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

    2014! A year to look for. For Alycia and with Alycia. Thank you Ramon!!!


    Teresa (oh that pink dress… blast the girl’s sassiness ;))
