Quilts, glasses and tomatoes..... I have have reached new heights - or depths, rather - in the realms of snappy titles. This has to be the worst of the lot. Accurate, but decidely not stunning.
I made this quilt, the Happy Quilt, to use in the summer if I lit my chiminea and it got a little chilly outside. Bright, summery and fun. The chiminea has not been lit. It is too cold to contemplate sitting out at night. Quilt and fire or not. So it can wait till next year. I have also decided to make a big bright one for my bed in the winter months, because it is certainly not drab, and will make me smile. Cheerful is good! A Happy Quilt.
After church this morning, David and I decided that going for a walk would be a better idea than vegging out on the couch, so we went to a nearby country park (with the sticks too) and walked through the forest. There are hundreds of paths. I tell you this because, when we got back to the car, I realised that I had lost my varifocals. In the forest. On one of those many many paths. Give me strength. David went one way and I went another but could not find them anywhere. I have told the ranger, and hope sincerely that someone has picked them up and will hand them in. But tomorrow, my friends are coming with us, and we will look again. If we can EVER find the exact paths we took.
I can't remember if I told you that we are experimenting with the medication I am on, to see if I can survive without the tablets. You have NO idea what I am feeling right now. I am determined to make it through a month, but I do believe I am aging 10 years every day. This is why I am so exhausted all the time. The doctors have told me I can up the doses whenever I need to, if it gets too bad, but I want to see if I can adapt. Believe me, it is bad. So I have been trying walking more to take my mind off my leg. (I actually wrote "the" leg, and remembered to change it!) It hurts no matter what I do, so I may as well do something fun, if you see how my mind is working here.
Anyway, if I sound a little bonkers in the next few weeks, please overlook my rambles. I have a very valid excuse.
And now I must go and look at the tomato/onion stuff I have cooking on the stove to freeze. I have a mountain of tomatoes, and as fast as I cook them, the pile grows even bigger. There are also apples and plums to sort. They can wait till tomorrow. I need another freezer. Sigh. I will be back later.
