Sunday Morning Coming Down

It rained during the night and today is overcast. We didn't go to church and actually haven't gone since Christmas. I miss it but it is a long walk from the front to the auditorium and then I have to sit on the first row of the balcony because the slanted floor plays havoc with my equilibrium. This requires a couple of steps and I'm not sure I'm up to that yet.

It will be a quiet day at home for us except we are going to get  a bite to eat around one. We had pancakes and sausage for breakfast. Usually when we eat lunch out on Sunday we have enough leftovers to make our evening meal at home.

I have finally gotten everything moved back into the furniture pieces which we had to empty for the flooring guys. They really made a mess of the house with pad trimmings and dust from the saw so it will be a few days before my "girls" come to clean and in the meantime, I've learned to accept the things I cannot change. Life today is what it is.

I'm going to try and post more regular. Tomorrow, I have to go for bloodwork first thing before coffee and breakfast. Hopefully the wait want be too long. Its a first come first served situation and one never knows how long it will be. I hope there isn't anyone in the waiting room with flu. Maybe I'll request a mask.

How are you spending your weekend?

Saturday Scribbling

Good Morning,
First an update on my health: Saw the specialist on Monday and he has taken me off inhalers and just wants me to do breathing treatments for tests and more tests.  Okay, enough about that.

We are seeing the first signs of Spring which are nice. Daffodils are blooming as are the Ornamental Plum trees....Lots of bird activity going on outside my window. We've been seeing temps in the 70s, in fact it was 72 in the house when I got up this morning. Too bad, I can't get out and walk some but still having shortness of breath.

We had new flooring put in two rooms and a hall this week so lots of moving around of non-furniture items. The workers moved the larger pieces....Also, Honey Bear and I needed to move our living room TV and recliners closer together so we could see better...(older eyesight, etc.).

I've been doing some sewing on the Fall quilt this week and still need to prepare the large block for Holly Cottage for applique and stitching....The first week in March is our annual Retreat for some of my friends...this year 10 or 11 are going which is a good number as we're usually only around I'm trying to get some work sorted to take along...haven't decided about taking my sewing machine...I have some cutting and pre-sewing work I can do on the Fall quilt without the machine...I need to make a trip to Hobby Lobby for border material for Holly Cottage, also. Daughter and I were going on Thursday bu when we got there the electricity was out for about 2 miles on one side of the highway and the stores were dark...

Well, that is a little news from our house....I will try to post more often but can't promise anything.
