It is an HQAL day and I have no hand work to show, BUT I do have some good news for me! I am back and eyes are working well! I was also able to discontinue 2 of the drops that were required for a month due to the side effects that I was having. Now I am really on the downside of this experience. Would I do it again – you betcha! It is worth all of the trips to SA (about 1500 miles since 17 Sep) the surgeries, and all the drops which control your life for 30 days. So I can now put this experience in the box of experiences never to repeat again! YEA
Before this all began I had 16 blocks ready to sew for Alexander Bean Pot. I just knew that I would be able to finish them AND have some blocks ready for the end of October for Celebrating Mary Brown. Hum, that did not happen – here is what I did do in the last month!
WOW four 5″ blocks finished – this has to be the most ‘non-productive’ month I have had in years. Time to light the fire and get with the program as 2020 is coming soon!
For those who have iPhones, it has also been a disaster for Apple with their OS13 operating system that they pushed out about 3 weeks ago. Yesterday I spent the day setting up a new Apple Watch and iPhone. Last week when reporting more issues they decided to send me a new phone and watch. I believe that it might now work. I probably had a corrupted file somewhere in the download. They now have 3 updates out where they have tried to correct their stupidity – I am waiting for update number 4 as they are still problems.
So today is definitely a Studio Day and sewing blocks on Alexander and finishing up the last of the pieces for some flowers for Celebrating Mary Brown.
We will have a 90+ degree weather today, and tomorrow and the remainder of the week will be my kind of weather. I have been back to my walking, but have decided today that it is just too hot and humid – so it will be a total play day!
I was unable to comment on so many of my favorite blogs and comments to my posts, so thank you all for sending out encouragement and thoughts while I was on eye vacation!
