While on my road trip, I got a voice mail reminding me that I had a mammogram yesterday at 4pm! I guess there was no better way to celebrate my return home, than by heading straight to the imaging center and taking care of “the girls!”
This cartoon cracked me up….and I know all of us of “a certain age” can relate! It doesn’t take long, it’s only a “BIT” uncomfortable, and you know that everyone in the waiting area is hating it just as much as you are!
My imaging center has moved---and they USED to have tea/coffee/cookies while you wait…NO MORE! And the magazines were old and dog-earred, so I took care of some email on my phone, and began reading one of the latest kindle uploads on my phone as well.
This is my plea to you, that if you haven’t had a mammo in a while, GO DO IT!
I spent some time flipping through the pics for Saturday’s 1/2 day Scrappy Mountain Majesties this morning and editing them down….after having MY mountains squashed flat, it seemed only fitting!
These gals got a HUGE amount done in just a 3 hour class! It will be fun to see what quilts they turn out with their blocks—there was a lot of fun arranging going on!
I have some great pics from the antique malls I hit on the way home, but that will include more editing down, and I’ve got a LOT on my plate today to get things in order after being gone 13 days! So…I might get to doing that tonight for tomorrow’s post. Stay tuned!
But I DID take a 3 mile walk last evening just to see what has greened up, sprouted out, and bloomed brightly while I was gone!
We have LEAVES!!! This is the most amazing change of all…and I can’t tell you how GOOD it feels. I really miss the color green in the winter time.
You can see the dogwood at the end of my drive still in blossom…the leaves will only get thicker as spring moves toward summer, just tucking my sweet little cottage house in amongst the foliage.
This was one leg of my 3 mile walk….isn’t it a beautiful stretch of road? That hill at the end is quite steep, really gets my heart pounding. ((Yes, I keep telling myself how GOOD it is for me!)) And when I reached the top of that hill, I was greeted by this beautiful sight:
Just look at this mass of gorgeous pink color! There are lots of white azaleas around, and some redder ones too, but it is the pink ones that just make me giddy!
It’s just a MASS of gorgeous blossoms! I also loved seeing the wisteria just dripping purple where it was blooming in the woods around the area too. THIS is what a North Carolina Spring is best at! Color, and smell and ---oh, I love it!
The past few weeks I have received comments on why I would post the pics from “some” classes, but not all. Some are impatient to have their own class pics posted, and on a long journey, I might teach the same class 3 times in a row, as what happened on the TN/NC/AL trip in March. It isn’t that I don’t think all class pics shouldn’t be posted, it is that there is more going on in my life than JUST posting class pics….if I miss a class posting, because I have decided to write on something else going on in my life, please forgive me.
Editing down lots of pics for a slide show takes time that I find myself very short on. I want to post things that I find might be interesting for you to read, and if it is all the same thing, the same class over and over and over, I’m afraid I’m going to lose readers – I’m trying to find balance between posting about life, and the quilting. So I ask for your patience and understanding. There is a lot going on behind the scenes in my life that you don’t see here, that I don’t post here. And finding a place and a way for it all to fit is not always easy.
It’s kind of like the feeling you get when contemplating getting OFF the fast moving train, only knowing that if you do get off, it is moving so fast you’ll never be able to get back on it again.
