Happy Thanksgiving from The Checkered Apple!

After a bit of a blogging break, I'm just popping in to wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving holiday to you and yours.  I also wanted to let you know I've recently had surgery on one of my fingers and plan on being on another blogging break through the end of the year.  

In the past ten years I've had to undergo this same surgery (on 3 other fingers) which is called Trigger Finger Release Surgery.  Some of you may be familiar with this and for those who aren't and are curious, you can visit the link I provided.

So for now I will be taking it easy and since typing isn't the easiest task at this time, I'm sad that I will be missing out on all of your terrific posts throughout the holiday season.  As my hand improves I hope to be visiting your blogs and get in a little reading from time to time.

Until next month, be safe a have a wonderful holiday!



  1. Get well Diane!
    You can be dreaming of all of the projects you will do when you feel better.
    Take Care,

  2. Hi Diane! Bless your heart! I'm so sorry you've had to have surgery and wish you a fast recovery and hope you're not in pain. You take care of yourself and have a great Thanksgiving! Hope someone will be doing the cooking for you.

    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  13. Diane, I hope you are doing much better and will soon be good as new! My daughter is having surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome next week. A lot of her work is done on the computer and that seems to be the cause. Was it the painting or the computer that caused your problems.?
    Have a blessed Christmas and get better soon. Ginger
