Three things to be happy about:
(1) relaxing completely
(2) the end of a tunnel
(3) kind words
Thank you, thank you, thank you one and all for your prayers, and your kind words of encouragement! This is what I'm sending you:
really BIG HUGS!!!
These miniature kimonos were made last year by Nadine, a member of my guild, and they express how I feel right now :o)
The MRI went okay but it's not anything I'd like to do again, you betcha! I was told by several people the secret is to close your eyes and KEEP em closed, so I did. The room was full of magnets that are always on, so I couldn't use my iPod; however he did have lots of music to choose from, and I chose a really good gospel mix that helped me relax. AND... he let me bring home some of those disposable slippers that I can wear while sluffing through the TSA checkpoint at the airport!
While reading the comments I had to chuckle at this one from Regina:
I don't think I have ever told you that I love, love, love, your list of 'things to be happy about'. What makes you happy usually makes me happy too. I am curious sometimes about some of the items, novelty lunchboxes?I have to let you in on a little secret - while spending Christmas with my sister in Hampton, VA we went rambling the day after Christmas as we always did, and we ended up in a Dollar Tree that was having a 1/2 price sale on their Christmas leftovers. Half price at the DOLLAR store - come on now! My quotes are from a 2006 page-a-day calendar that I bought for 50 cents called "The Best of 14,000 Things to be Happy About Calendar." It's a great calendar that has 5 happy things for each day - clever eh? I've been using the quotes a loooong time and haven't gone through all of them yet... I usually choose three random ones around the date that I post the blog. So now you know my secret! ;o)
Yesterday I got all my greens pressed, I used a vinegar-water combination (one part white vinegar, 7 parts water) on the pieces that had hard wrinkles and it worked like a charm! Today I don't have any errands outside the house, so I'll get everything else pressed and start cutting, get them and ready to roll.
Where did I put my Easy Angle ruler???
That's it for now, have a great Thursday, sew forth and sew on!
