My Poor Bladder

October 31, 2009

I went back to the urologist yesterday.  I had no idea it was possible to put all that up a person’s bladder.  I’ve got to go back in a month.  This time I was given a gel to try.  It’s not supposed to have the side effects.  We’ll see.  I hate the ‘try this, try that’ business.

It’s very windy today.  I could have spent the day sitting on my neighbor’s pier out on the river.  It was so beautiful.  Some of the waves were so hard that it felt like someone or something was kicking the pier.

The girls loved chasing the leaves.  They were out all day.103109 003

Sorting Fabric

October 22, 2008

I have been sorting my fabric stash off and on for the past several days.  I finished this morning and cut out a few things.  I have five fabrics for nightgowns, but I was planning on two or three.  How did that happen?  At least it’s good for quilting.  As a matter of fact, they would all make a very nice looking quilt.  The Christmas quilt that Doug wants me to make for our bed needs a few plain colors.  There’s more than enough for the bed and a small quilt.  I spent entirely too much time looking for matching solid fabrics today.  There are plenty of the patterned fabrics, and Iknow there are solids out there.  It seems no one is advertising them.  I guess I am going to have to do it the old fashioned way and call around.  Jeeze!

It’s very windy today and Zip doesn’t like it one bit.  His fur gets blown the wrong way.  It’s all our fault.  Maude doesn’t like the wind either.  She doesn’t  have much fur and gets cold.  She’s been in and out several times.  Elvis, on the other, was out for quite a while.  He was sleeping on the bricks.  I tossed a few acorns at him to make sure he was still alive.  He thinks the others are whoozes.

It Was So Warm Today

January 10, 2008
I only wore a corduroy top and jeans when we walked the dog. It was so windy, there were white caps on the river and it didn’t matter. We had doors and windows open.

Gus says, “Hi”.

Maude still prefers to nap under the tree. Yes, my tree is still up. The only bad thing was that since it is supposed to get cold and rainy, Doug took down the lights on the deck. He also climbed on the roof and got leaves off. I, however was in embroidery mode. I made this for the back of the table runner.

Then, I decided to make a few more.

Doug used to call Jenn Big Foot.

I just liked the goose. I also found a Maine Coon cat that I hope to make tomorrow. I have to change the colors to look more like Jenn’s.
