A little walk through a garden center can be good for what ails anyone.
I am counting my lucky stars that Wednesday was only a travel day, and I could rest.
It was a miracle that I found the minute clinic 10 minutes before closing and they could get me right in on Wednesday evening, getting these rounds of antibiotics going.
That Yesterday was a stay in bed all day kind of day, and I napped off and on – mostly on ---until mid afternoon when I realized I really needed to get out and get something to eat.
There is a walmoart super center across the way, and the afternoon sun was warm and comforting and I made my way over there…stopping at the garden center to say hello to all of the blooming things.
Oh, the color!
Hello Tulips! Welcome, Spring!
Happy Daffodils and Jonquils ---so nice to greet you.
((hack hack, cough cough, smile))
I needed another round of throat lozenges, and while in Walmart picking up a few things….I noticed they had a Regal Nails salon.
Oh, wouldn't a pedi feel good?
A bit of pampering is good for EVERYONE!
I think what felt the best was the massage chair. It feels like every muscle in my entire body has been under siege and it was a nice little respite for a bit.
From here, lunch was a restorative bowl of chicken soup at Ruby Tuesday – all within walking distance from my hotel.
I had time for one more nap before being picked up at 5:15 to go set up for my lecture.
How was I going to do this?
We had over 100 come and fill the sanctuary!
And the show went on. I want to thank everyone for their patience with my voice, and the need to stop and take sips of water so that I could continue. It wasn’t the best lecture ever. I didn’t feel on my mark. But I think I got the best points out there, and it was just super meeting everyone.
We even had some show and share when I was done:
Smith Mountain Morning from Scraps & Shirttails II in King Size!
Scrappy Mountain Majesties top in progress!
Pattern found under the Free Patterns tab at the top of the blog.
Love the blues, greens & purples!
And this one stole the show!
Pineapple Crazy from String Fling!
I would have sworn this one was mine! the only difference was she used green where I used solid red around the outside edges of the border pennants. Truly a fabulous quilt, and she said it only took her 2 1/2 months to make it. Mine traveled with me for YEARS and I worked on it “on again, off again” for quite a while before I got the top done and decided what to do with that border.
These show & shares inspire me so much! Thank you for bringing them to share with me, with all of us.
Today and tomorrow are back to back Crumbs Crumbs Crumbs workshops at Country Crossroads Quilt Shop in Orange Park.
They are taking really good care of me, and I understand there will be home made soup for our lunch today to continue my healing.
What better medicine is there than playing in the scraps and CREATING??
Have a great Friday, everyone!
