Since I was scheduled off work for a few days, I drove
down to go out for a movie and to dinner with DS. I’ve seen several antique malls around his
area, so I visited two. One was quite
expensive with no better quality items.
The other was reasonable. We saw
Prometheus: “A team of explorers
discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey
to the darkest corners of the universe.” Then we had some tasty sushi - yum!
On the fourth, we had our old standby “Pot” (Frogmore Stew or Low-Country Boil
minus chicken or sausages) cooked outside at Mom’s, but eaten inside! If I had to rank, this was the best
ever! It was just a small group of six family members,
but we really enjoyed the meal.
I went for my nuclear stress test on Monday.
They warned me, but boy is that a lot of hurry up and wait. They put in some dye, then wait…drink water “quickly”
and wait some more. Lie on the table for
the scanner for a while and wait some more.
Now it’s time for the treadmill and more dye injected. It has been A WHILE since I’ve done much exercise at all, but this was
fierce. The doctor had given them a
specific heart rate he wanted to achieve.
It started out ok – clicking right along… then I felt a little short of
breath… then it was hard… then the attendant said, we’d better let her stop,
she’s getting blue around the mouth! WHAT? Wait a while longer...more scanning... They did let me leave after almost four hours,
so at least they didn’t think it was too bad, but I go back Tuesday for the
I’ve stitched up a couple of Sister Stitcher from The Primitive Hare. They’re quick and easy stitches – now for the finishing! I had hoped to get them done this week, but we’ll see if that happens. I also finished Plum Street Sampler’s Give. I love how it turned out. Oh, have you seen that darling Halloweenies? They’re holding it and the JCS Halloween issue for me at my LNS. Think I’ll pop over there to pick them up in a few.
I’m really sorry for all the folks who have been without power during this awfully hot weather. It seems to be coming back to some areas, slowly.
Thanks for stopping by today!
I'm grateful for power and a/c.
and Happy Stitching
