Couldn't resist...

With temperatures over 90* I have to recall that it wasn't so long ago that the weather was a "bit" cooler! I had a productive day. I had two Dr appointments. You know you are getting old when that happens. One was with a cardiologist- get to have me a stress test next week. oh joy. Like life isn't one long ongoing stress test! The second was a follow up with a surgeon. I promised a dear friend that I would have a colonoscopy- she recently passed from colon cancer. Glad I had it done as I did have a large precancerous polyp. I would have been in trouble if I had put it off till I'm 50. Seven years can make a difference in this sort of thing. So what are you waiting for? It really wasn't unpleasant and the prep is much simpler than it used to be. My friend, Melinda, was 42 when she died. What a shame. Wake up call. I get to repeat this process in 2 years, myself. No biggee.

I came home from all that fun to declare war on the mess that was my quilting/sewing room. You know how things tend to pile up and before you know it every horizontal surface is hidden under a foot of... stuff. It took less than two hours with help from John- wore the poor boy out. But I am so thrilled with the finished product. It still needs a little tweaking but Wow what a difference. You'd think I'd want to sit down and sew now, right? Nah, I just want to sit and admire the room!! Stay cool.

Me next, me next! Please? Something HAS to be done in there - but this week I am concentrating on painting Maddie's room. Hoping to finish it off tonight after bible class. I have to find our guild challenge info that is buried somewhere in the sewing room - bad part is that it is ALL the guild's assignments - not just mine! It is all in a baggie somewhere! Ugh.

Miss you and love you!

Oh I need to get your brother to the doctor. Hard to make appts with his schedule. I guess I should just call and schedule and make him deal.
