Short and Sweet

We have had sunny days, warm days and even chilly days. It's that time of the year when the weather bounces around and you may start off the day with warmer clothes then change over to something less bulky later in the day.

I went to the dr. and it turns out that my cold is really bronchitis so they gave me some meds to knock it out. He sent me over to the lab to get some blood work done and hopefully that will show if I am hyperthyroid again or if it is something else going on. He promised to get me back to normal. I couldn't help but laugh and told him "I think at my age, normal is a lost cause".

Each time I picked up my stitching, my eyes got dry and itchy from allergies or I just fell asleep so not much got done on that side of the coin.

Another thing I did was to start making a list of the pieces I want to work on through the rest of 2011 and for 2012. It always looks so good on paper. Organized, thought out and full of promises. But I have to say the actual finished pieces do look better on the walls than a list! *wink*

Thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway! I wish I could send a set of these to each of you. The winner is Calamity Jr. Congratulations!

Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.

Agh! Bronchitis is not fun! That has happened to DH too, so I know how that goes. Hope you're feeling better! Hope the blood tests go well too. I always say dealing with thyroid disease is a whole lot better than other things I could be dealing with. :D

Hope the meds have you feeling better in no time! Funny - the finished stitchery looking better on the wall than your list. I'd have to agree with you there! Thanks again for the great charts - can't wait to start! (But I'm one of those who thinks she has to finish what's she's working on now. Think I can get over that?!?!)

Sorry you're not feeling well, hope the medicine kicks in soon and you feel better.

I've been thinking about what i would like to stitch on next year too, it must be that coming to the end of the year thing!
I would like to accomplish more stitching than i have this year for a start,lol

Take care x

I hope your bronchitis is better by now and that they get your thyroid problems straightened out.
And what type of things did you put on your list for the upcoming new year?

I hope you are feeling much better by now.
Planning the stitching year is always a lot of fun and I'm also already pulling patterns in order to make a list. I'm curious to see what you are coming up with.
