More Samplers

sometimes when we're not busy
(at work)
I have time to browse the internet
do I spend my time checking out interventional radiology?
study how to better image a fractured and dislocated shoulder?
(after I've looked at everything else)

normally it's straight to Pinterest
these are my recent bits of eye candy

I promise when I'm back to work
after a few more vacation days
I'll study more about radiation protection
really, I will!

maybe even study stress reduction
(which is sort of the same thing as looking on Pinterest)

can you guess what drew me to this sampler
it's those two tiny animals at the bottom

it's nearly time for my yearly evaluation at work 
I'm taking a copy of this in to share with my boss...

Pinterest is almost as good as Xanax 
when you're prone to anxiety

Happy Sunday!
my sister brother in law are here from NC
so I'm get a little break from Mom
(and she from me)

just this afternoon and all day tomorrow
you have no idea how grateful I am...

Off Topic: Exercise and Mom

when your health comes first

I've been having so much trouble lately
with my feet and legs
they are screaming at me for exercise...

so I bit the bullet
ordered one of these...
looks like fun

the new rehab wing where Mom lives 
has a sweet little atrium
I've thought about this picture
since the first time I saw it

very peaceful and calming
except when your Mom is cranky(like today)
just a few more days 
until my sister and her husband are here...

maybe, just maybe
she'll be in a good mood with them

Debbie's Rug Progress

binding Debbie's rug
everyone wanted to keep it!
something about the colors...
Mom says the soup tastes better
from this bowl
handmade in NC
it reads" as for my and my house we will serve the Lord"

Another Woolen Memories Rug

next up on the frame
a sweet one from Woolen Memories
just deciding on the truck color...

am going to start the binding on Debbie's beach rug today
once I find my big gold needles
or any needle the yarn can go through
organization seems to be far beyond me

Mom is feeling better
she is off oxygen except for bedtime!
scheduled for a follow up chest x ray tomorrow

I've been taking her vegetable soup
as often as possible
with a dinner roll or good bread
she prefers it over most everything
as long as there is dessert

Have a great Sunday!
missing my Dad today as always
feeling blessed
with so many wonderful memories

why my hair is a mess

An Old Love

I saw a rug I made ages ago on Pinterest today
this is one of my designs
hooked by me
a very favorite rug
living with my NC sister, of course
do you like coming across your work
on Pinterest?
I especially love seeing
what others have done with my doodles...

Another Antique Beauty

another antique rug from Pinterest
what a background!
Mom waving for my sister in NC
she's feeling much better
ready to play bingo
instead of a nap
still weak and tired
on oxygen 24/7 for now
she normally hates wearing it
once you reminder it will help her
get over the pneumonia
she's okay
I know she's doing well
because she can't wait to get her hair done
Happy Sunday!
it's my sixth day in a row a work
two nights working over in surgery cases
can't wait to get home tonight

Geometric Hooking

as always
when no pictorial rug catches my fancy
I fall to geometric hooking
another great Pinterest find
now to decide on which mess of worms to use...
Mom is slowly recovering
her appetite is for soup and "maybe" dessert
I'm taking her a supply of veggie soup in today
with some fresh dinner rolls
she's still weak and tired
to be expected
her spirits are excellent
for me, that's the most important thing
Wishing you a beautiful day
it's sunny and cool here in Ohio
perfect by my standards

In Her Own Bed

Mom is happily sleeping in her own bed tonight
after impersonating the
Tasmanian Devil last night
seriously, there was no sleeping
after her scan
every minute was spent
taking her gown, oxygen and electrodes off
trying to climb out of bed
for about 7 hours
making fists and wanting to punch me
and/or the nurse and aide
today she has been so apologetic and embarrassed
her wonderful nurse Debbie said no apology necessary
when you work in the medical field
you know what you're getting in to
when you are a patient, you don't
I have a huge respect for the work nurses do
 this fine lady is the BEST!
it makes mom so happy to make friends
all the people she comes in contact with
she charms then with her stories
that mix past, present and fiction
her laughter and attitude
she is feeling much better
but not 100% yet
new issues to be solved
or adapted to
we don't want her to go through a lot of testing
none that involves anesthesia for sure
Thanks for your kind words and prayers
we appreciate each one
more than you know!
