It's Hot


It is SO hot here, and supposed to be even hotter this weekend. If you need me, I'll be in my sewing room enjoying the A/C!

Had my appointment today with the orthopedist who did my shoulder replacement. He x-rayed my shoulder, and the prosthesis is intact. He could see a little pooling of blood where a tendon attaches to the prosthesis. He said I really gave it a good tug when I fell down the stairs, but it is still attached. So I'm to just rest it as much as I can and go back in four weeks if it's still bothering me. He thinks everything will be fine, though. He's such a funny old man - told me he would like to write one prescription for me, for a one-story house! LOL!

I don't have any new quilty pictures to post. I'm still plugging along on the red and white shooting star block. The problem with doing such an easy, repetitive block is my mind is constantly designing new quilts. I think I'm up to about 3,467 now!

I miss my roses....

Safe travels to Gracie as she makes her way back to New York.

Gratitudes:

* A good health insurance plan at work!
* Leora is back home for good!
* Deb's mom, Blanche, is out of the hospital and doing a lot better!
* Jane and Marlene's inspirations!
* It's Friday!

good news about the shoulder though I am sure that it is plenty sore, Vicky.

I always find my mind wandering when I am quilting--less so when I am piecing when I have to watch what I'm doing or plan on ripping. Now pressing is another story, LOL

I'm so glad the shoulder news isn't too bad. I was thinking that you need a one story house too! I think that would be good for Daisy too.

Hope you manage to stay cool and get lots of sewing done this weekend.

I'm so happy to hear the dr news wasn't too bad. You just gotta be more careful there girl!! What would Daisy do without you??? Great job on getting the stuff at the sale, but so sad that another one bites the dust. Have a good weekend..stay cool!

With the heat supposed to rise here as well, I will be like you--in my studio with the A/C cranked up!

Well this IS good news!! When I read earlier in the week that you had hurt it, I cringed and sent some prayers up for ya. :o)
Yeah...a one story house is *exactly* what you need.

(((HUGS))) for your day!

I feel for you with a sore shoulder and trying to sew. Glad it's not as bad as you were worried about.
BE CAREFUL!..OK?!

It's hot here too...and humid! But, hey...it's summertime.

Oh, I'm really glad to hear that you didn't severely damage the implant - thank God! Take easy, keep cool and enjoy some serious sewing time!

Thankfully you didn't do serious damage to your shoulder! Phew. Take good care and take it easy - don't go over-doing it now. Enjoy your A/C - I have yet to run mine this summer as we are still wearing pull-overs almost every day, for at least part of the day and then it cools off at night. The first year I moved to Canada I tried to grow tomatoes and was disappointed!

Cheers!
