An update on getting back to normal!!!

So I though all would get back to nice steady flow of my day, but wait!! NO! Ended up getting very sick for the month of December and then to find out that I have a surface cancer on my arm!! My sister had to have a shoulder replacement.  I am guessing that perhaps this is my normal!!  I always seem to be busy and on the go, but I am trying for a new normal - a slower normal.  I will slow down a bit - our daughter, Lindsay, will be moving back to Orlando, though will miss her, she does add activity to our life, since she is a movie buff, we have gotten into movies and video games!!
Before Lindsay moves, she wanted to visit her friend Javon who moved to Japan six years ago - so guess who is going with her??? That's right - me!!  It should be a fun, busy and exciting time, especially since I am into embroidery and Ikebana.  Hope to visit the Japanese Embroidery Center and the Ichiyo Ikabana school.  Of course Linds wants to head to the Animation and video areas. 
We are wanting to visit museums, temples, Mt Fuji and various other cities. 
Below is the update on the Terry Bay piece I have been working on, as you can see Mars has to give a helping hand. 
Here is some other knitting that I am working on - somehow forgot that I had this sock to finish, so hoping to get it done quickly.  Also working on another scarf. 
Here is a an African Violet that was at Diane and Mildred's house (my friend that passed away last year).  It seems to like living at my house and it is now 2 plants so I will split it when it stops blooming and give one of the plants to Mildred. 
Also, another plant and it is loving the spot where I put it and it has bloomed, who would have thought that this orchid would be happy here in middle Georgia in the cold temps!! 
I did manage to get something stitched and finished - finally!!! This was for a heart tree that was on display at Callaway's NeedleArts School. 

Thank you for stopping by chat with you all again.
