Thirty days!

This was some mountain I climbed but I think I'm over it now. I don't even want to talk about it. I still fall asleep without warning but I did get Thanksgiving dinner made so that was a good sign.

This was dinner for 2. It tasted the same, just not so flowers and all I could find for candles in the house was the white emergency candles I have hidden for when the lights go out. 

Tomorrow I have all day doctor visits so today I'll be doing my Amazon shopping and sewing up some American girl dresses I promised.

Since I could breath today I thought I'd let you all know that I'm still here!  As I get stronger I hope to post more.

Still here

Just a note to let you all know I'm still here!  Will use a copy off my Facebook just because it's easier for me right now...............So here goes;

Just a note...The word Hospital has been my life for the past week or so. I have been paralyzed without the ability of forming sentences.....but like Jack N........Honey, I'm Home!! :) They thought it was the gathered.....but no so fast, I hung onto my Monkey Quilt, fought with them through slurred speech, signed myself home and each day I am improving....little by little. Nothing like having a MONKEY on your back! :)Don't count me out yet. I might see 2017! Love ya all!!

Just a Quickie...lots going on at my house!

Usually when bad things happen in life there is also the good that comes with it. Maybe this is why I am still here. We won't talk about the bad but the good is having 2 of my grand kids living here with me. The last few days have been stressful but sooner or later you get the house straightened out and then you can enjoy the pleasure that goes with it.

I do need some help. We are looking for a good school in South Carolina, a college for the fall of next year. We are behind in doing the things that should have been done by now but I'm hoping I'll keep running well enough to visit some schools with my granddaughter.

In the meantime my grands son's stay with me will be a short one. He'll be leaving for the Army in January. So while we'll be running around the computer putting together college visits he'll be running around the corn fields getting himself in shape for boot camp.

Time for fall...too many 90 degree days!

I've been suffering with our daily 90 to 95 degree days. It's not normal for Pennsylvania and even with the wind we get from the blue mountains the wind is HOT!  Walmart has the holiday on so I decided after coming across a table runner I made a few years ago that I'd create my own fall.....colorful maple leaves, pumpkins, children in costume and a pumpkin ghost....didn't do anything for the 90 degree day's heat but it did make me smile!

MRI over with

Got this Brain thing over with. No cancer in my brain. Appears that the RA that has taken over my neck has also taken over my sight, hearing and head pain. I have to laugh. Everyone is so concerned over the cancer but it's the RA that's giving me real pain and trouble. Just for fun here is ME..not to glamorus!  My mouth looks like a monkey!

Still fighting

It's been a few weeks of sleeping, problems with vision and the use of my hands but once again I seem to be getting stronger and able to stay up and running for a while. Today I pulled out tomato plants and cleared that bed, ironed a stack of shirts and pillow cases that had piled up and baked a cake...big improvement !

I wanted to wear my new apron that Rita sent to me and show you all this cleaver idea. It wouldn't take much to copy it. It's a man's over sized shirt with the sleeve's cut out and the front sewn down. I love it...Thanks Rita.

She also sent me a garden flag that she knew would remind me of times past. Life has changed since we left Lancaster Pa. for Texas. But this flag pretty much is the picture of what use to be. I have it in my Sun flower garden.

and now back to bed. I've had a pretty big day, first one in many weeks. I just want to rest now. Besides the heat has been awful and takes a lot out of me. It's been hotter here then it was in Texas......humid and just plain hot and sticky!

Quick up date

Oh yes, I'm plugging along!  Today was the MRI but they forgot to send me for the blood test needed for the dye they will no MRI today.

I got a surprise in the mail today from Rita...Thank you Rita! It's so special that I thought I'd wear it and take a photo for you all, something I rarely do. I have most of my vision back and the use of my hands. I bought the whipping cream and cake flour for the Elvis pound cake which I think should make a good photo if I can stay up on my feet that long.

I just want you all to know I'm still fighting. I love the fall with it's cooler days and leaves falling in colorful piles. I'd sure hate being this close to fall and missing out on it.  I'll be back in a few days to show you all Rita's gift.
