Well, just when I thought my life was getting back to “normal” I injured my lower back this time! I have had two weeks of pain, excruciating during the first week, and am still using a walker. Needless to say, this has compromised my ability to work on my project. I am trying to find a good message in all this. I am improving, slowly. Maybe this is a wake-up call to take out some time for myself. Who knows. More will be revealed! Thank you to those who stop by to review previous posts.
This quilt was made by my friend Sara, her second, of a favorite antique quilt in her collection that was beyond repair. She says this will be the last one which she will keep for herself. I love the simplicity of the design and the beautiful reproduction fabrics she has used. The half-square triangle border lends a air of playful irregularity. As always, I enjoyed working on Sara’s quilt.
It’s time for a lot of things in my life to change. Spring has always been a time for me to make, or attempt to make changes in my life. This year signals that changes in physical activity and a revamped eating plan are in order. After two bouts of forced inactivity last year, I have lost a certain amount of fitness, which was not that good to begin with. Exercise for the sake of exercise alone has been one of my life-long dislikes. More so that it takes away time for other more cerebral pursuits than an inherent dislike of moving my body. Alas, now it is necessary to forgo the reluctance to spend time on this pursuit and get with it. Walking is my choice. Aiming for the advised goal of 30 minutes a day is what I am committing to. Wish me luck!
Another biggie is getting a new computer. I am frustrated with my current computer and want a new MAC. I’ve thought of fixing my other old G5… new power supply and mother board (new RAM did nothing). I would spend less money but would it be worth it? This problem has caused me to stop blogging and that is definitely something I want to change. Everyone keeps telling me to just get a cheaper PC and be done with it. I am in a quandary not sure which way to go. So, I am almost through with this post and so far Safrari hasn’t quit yet. Woo hoo! More will be revealed.
Thank you to those of you who visited my blog in 2013. I have had a rough year and not posted much due to issues with my health and my computer’s health! I hope that 2014 will be a better year in all regards and that I will be posting regularly. So, may you have a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous NEW YEAR!
OH! Just to let you know, I have a piece in the latest issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine’s Mixed Media Stitch challenge.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,900 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 48 trips to carry that many people.
I was nominated for a Sunshine Award and have chosen to just answer the questions posed to me instead of making my own nominations. I don’t know 10 people who blog that aren’t already nominated. I suppose we could just go round and round with different questions…. Anyway, here goes.
1. What pivotal event in your life changed you for the better? Taking care of my husband as he battled cancer. I was amazed at how strong I could be for both of us.
The last couple of days give me hope. I have been improving in spite of waiting for tests. I am in less pain and able to walk some without the walker. I finally got an appointment for an MRI… on November 1! Wonder how much more I will have improved by then. I am so anxious to get back to normal. Working, cooking, walking… the list goes on.
Today is a sunny day. I got good sleep last night and was surprised to find that I can walk a little better! I am encouraged that I am getting better. My MRI is scheduled for Nov.1… really? I will probably be healed by then. Ah well, I just will have to go with the flow.
