I LOST ALMOST TWO WEEKS!
This is where my sewing stood when I last posted several weeks ago. I was happy to be back in the swing of creating and looked forward to completing my runner and moving on to other things. Note to self: NEVER figure out your timeline...it is an open invitation for "Murphy" to throw a monkey wrench into things!
On Sunday, the 8th, my dad had a mini stroke! He spent a few days in ICU and then was transferred to the telemetry floor. For the first few days I was so stressed that the thought of a bit of hand sewing to pass the time never even entered my mind! Once it did, however, I threw my sewing kit into my purse and worked on producing white hexies for another runner in my sewing room.
When I got home I dove into attaching those hexies to the assorted hexie diamonds I had already completed. I tried hard to get my mind off of "medical" stuff, but this Facebook post kind of says it all, LOL!
Dad came home on the 13th and is recuperating nicely. It has taken a full week for my body to recover from the damage caused by my level of stress. Today was the first day I had a more "normal" (for me anyway) supply of energy. I remembered a scone mix that I had seen buried in the pantry. Breakfast? Easy, peasy! Unfortunately the taste was on par with the amount of energy expended!!! Not too great, ;o( I think it is time to say goodbye to "convenience" mixes and find myself a few old fashioned recipes like my great grandmother would have made. Better for our bodies and most definitely better tasting!!!
