Humpty Dumpty Had a Great Fall!

It has been some time since I last posted. A lot has happened in that time. 
Do you see the top tier of terrace in the picture above? To give you a little idea of the scale, it is about 10 feet from top to bottom. Well, a couple of weeks ago I fell backwards off of this wall and landed just about a foot from the concrete at the bottom. I fractured my tibia near the knee, tore a meniscus, and fractured my ribs. (I also broke a toe, but I hurt so badly everywhere else, I didn't even know that for a day or so!) I have been in bed with my leg elevated and on ice. I was given crutches, but they hurt my ribs so badly I was switched to a walker! (how humiliating! It's good practice for when I get a little older.). I go back to the orthopedic doctor in two more weeks to be reevaluated. Hopefully, the meniscus will heal on its own. I am feeling MUCH better, but have been ordered to stay off the leg until he sees me again.
My sweet husband his waiting on me hand and foot. He is cooking and cleaning and recording when I take pills. He has even taken over my responsibilities at church setting up Bible class supplies for the little ones. He told our friends that I had pulled a "Humpty Dumpty"!
In the meantime, 
the two showers have been tiled and Doug is putting new underlayment down in preparation for the flooring. We had to scrape and sand the old one just to put a new layer down. He also replaced an entry door. I put a second coat of paint on the walls before my fall. 
We are planning on getting my sewing room set up as quickly as possible. I am unable to get down the stairs right now to even see the progress. (I have said from "day one" that  I wanted an elevator! I wish I had nagged a little more!)  The work is going much more slowly with only one person working.
Before you go, can you spot our visitor in this photo. She was trying to hide from us as we drove up to the house. 
 These photos are not great,but perhaps you can get an idea of what she looked like.
I hope your summer is going great so far!! 
Hugs to all!
