Hi Reed, I enjoyed the quilt show. saw many of our guild there. it was in a town in NY very near Connecticut, so every time I saw the signs for Danbury I thought of our other admin here Lorraine. maybe next year when I go I might suggest she meet me there. I know she does some quilting. I didn't buy anything and I brought my own lunch, so it was a cheap date.
I am feeling the usual blah today. tomorrow will be a big day at the guild, we are taking in the quilts for OUR show. it has to be done in a particular way, so of course I'll be there..next Tuesday is judging day, which is hard, but one of my favorite days ever. we have professional certified quilt judges. it's very serious. since I worked on the diabetes quilt most of last year, and a hand appliqued one this year that's not quilted yet, I have nothing to put in this year. it's shameful really. I hope we have a good show.
so what does Tom think about Russ driving? you need a plan. we finally got my mom to stop driving when she was 86. my nephew told me a policeman stopped her when she was driving on a bicycle path. she's constantly asking people to drive her places when she could be taking the bus from her place. at least they have a service where she lives that takes people to their doctor's appointments. it's all the other things. say, can another TOPS member pick you up? you can offer to pay for the gas. I'm sure you've already thought of that. bg 126
Hi Reed. I did not go to the spring festival today as it was terribly cloudy and looked like rain. It never did rain, so now I am disappointed. I did get a lot of straightening done and sorted out my summer clothes. I hope Chico isn't like my niece's cat, Kona, who loves to say hello by biting your fingers....it is very nice of you to help out and take care of him. I hope this weeks brings some calmness to your household.
Hey Reed....very sticky here today. Not good for the ole asthma! Rather disappointed that yesterday's apogee moon was not as impressive as I had hoped! It was overcast in the eastern sky here last night. By the time I could actually see the moon, it had risen in the sky and wasn't as large as what it might have been earlier! Spent quite a while on report cards today, so I rewarded myself with a visit to my friends on Tu. Bet you have your AC going!! ;) Have a good start of the week....hope all will be well with Russ.
Luv and hugs....linda
It's honestly bad when ur ride can't do that for u isn't it??? I know when K got his surgery I had to look for a ride a few times b/c he dose all the driving for me. WE got some thunder stormes last night but apperantly I slept through them K told me about it this morning. SOOOOOO HOT here! I think the high yesterday was 95 not sure though the only thing I can say for sure is my g-mother's house was HOT (remember she won't turn on her a/c) Hope Russ does well! Good luck my friend!!!
Reed, I'm hoping this is something the Dr can help with treatment and medication. I was worried that he may have had a stroke. Usually one of the reasons that causes older folks to lose their ability to walk. These joints, they just get ya no matter what. I'm hoping they can help Russ. Had bursitis in my shoulder many years ago before they operated on it. Felt very debilitating. Take care. My prayers are with all of you. <3 <3 Joanne
Hi Reed. Yest when you said Russ could not walk, I was sure he'd had a stroke. Had there been no evidence of the calcium deposit before? Seems very odd. Today I went to Subway with a former co-worker. We had a nice visit. Then on the way home I stopped at a Cinco de Mayo celebration that was held in a Hispanic neighborhood near me. But, it was drizzling quite heavily so I didn't stay long. The old laptop my sister gave me seems to be working a lot better than my other computer. I took it to a local shop and they cleaned it up and installed the softwear for my printer so I think it'll hold me for a year or maybe two. Tomorrow a children's theater has its "Welcome Spring" festival at a large park. There is a parade. Best thing is, anyone can be in the parade. Just walk along with everybody else and say "happy spring". It is really fun. But again, rain may crush it. I am not going if it rains. I hope tomorrow is a better day at your house. At the store they were giving away samples of turkey sausage. It was utterly delicious. Then I looked at the label and each link had 1000 mg of sodium, which is half my daily allowance. So I had to be strong and walk on by...
OMG Reed I wish the best for Russ. I know the feeling "What else can go wrong???" I'm pretty much living it everday around here right now. We got 6 more PT sessions to do we're 1/2 way trough now. That WORKS!!! I promise u I felt like they were trying to kill me and K the 1st day LOL!
HI Reed- Sorry for all the health troubles with Russ. Hope they clear up soon. Cloudy again today. Jim is planting pansy's today, after all of our talk about them, I said I wanted some in the garden. Looks like Chico has found a second home. Sounds like he is a very friendly cat. Hugs to you ! Cat
Mornin' Reed :) IT'S SATURDAY.....YEAH!!!!! We might be in for a show tonight!! A super moon at its biggest just after sunset (Apogee moon)! How's Russ doing this morning? Might you have to make a call to the doc? Hope he'll be ok...it's one thing after another ♥
Is Tom at your place this weekend? Reed's diner open yet?
I'm doing some greeting today....but will mostly be working on report cards this afternoon, as I DO NOT WANT to leave things to the last minute...so unnerving! Luv and hugs.....linda
hi Reed, how is everything today? I'm glad we are back to just the two of us here, I like my peace and quiet. However, it did not help me get a good night's sleep. my bgs are on the high side too, so I'm changing my set, even though I just did it yesterday. I understand we're going to have a super sized moon tonight, hope I get to see it. hope Russ is getting around. hugs.
Oh Reed I just read where Russ cannot walk. Gosh, what next? I am also sorry that the cardiologist was a waste of time. We had rain yesterday and today. It was much needed. Please keep us posted. Will be praying for you all.
