Tripping

So far so good. DH had to drive the whole way since I was in pain, but we made it. The pain is now manageable. 
Construction was constant which made for slow going especially between Sealy and SA. We checked into the Base Lodging and got a upgrade-a lovely 2 room suite. Activity on the base starts early with planes taking off at around 7am. 
  Wedding is Saturday evening but festivities start tonight.
Friday Events:
   Lunch was eventful with a car catching fire outside the window where we were sitting. DH would not come away from the window. 
  About 5pm DH decided he wanted to go out so we got dressed and went meet the younger generation in S.A.  Yes, I drove on the freeways. 
Saturday Events:

We got dressed, drove to hotel, ate lunch (not that great). At 3pm we met up with Lynn and company to travel to wedding sire. Naturally we got lost. Thank goodness for GPS.
 The ceremony was very nice. Then we traveled to reception. Again we got lost. 
 The reception was a very lovely combination of the two families style. We left around 10pm when I started hurting. On the way back, we got lost again. We are good at getting lost and using GPS. LOL
Sunday Events:
  All is good as I get ready to start my 68th year of life.  We will be traveling most if the day.    
Stash Report:
No movement! But another Loosey Goosey block was made before we left for S.A.. MAYBE my muse will come out of hiding soon.

  A friend called and made a request for 2 quillows - one with S for Stanford and the other with H for Harvard. Her daughter's sons received full scholarships this year. So now I am on the hunt for fabric to represent both universities.
Lator!

Design Wall and Stash Report

Design Wall:
The wall still has parts of GQA on it. The plan is to sew something before Thursday. ANYTHING!!
Stash Report:
No movement! Seeing all the wonderful projects on the blogs I follow scares my muse away. She is very insecure these days.

Monday Morning Wonderings

Outside my window... birds singing and the sun shining.
I am listening to...  Spirit pounding on her keyboard.
One of my favorite things... spending time with my great grandchildren and grandchildren.
One of my least favorite things... pain in my bottom. It is less but still always prssent. I am looking forward to the day when it is gone.
I am missing... DGS#9. He is busy helping DD#1 clean her place to get ready to move. Payment will be a truck so I am saving to be able to help him pay for insurance.
I am planning... to leave with DH for S.A. early Thursday morning. This weekend starting on Friday will be a flurry of activity for DGS#1's wedding. 
I am remembering ...  how much I really enjoy raw veggies and how they affect my body.
I am wondering... how to get my piecing mojo back.
I am thinking... about what I have to do to get my energy level up. I am doing more but still getting tired quickly. Once I have more energy maybe my mojo will show up.
I am super thankful... for the support of my family and friend thur this cancer journey.
I am sewing on... nothing but there are blocks kitted waiting!
I am deciding... where to sew once my mojo shows up. Studio, den, behind sofa, or all three!
My future includes...  weddings, trips, and hopefully no surgery.
I am hoping... to continue healing so that there will be no need for surgery.
I really need to... start piecing again. The list of quilts needed is growing! If I don't get started, I'll never catch up.

Squirrels

   They have taken over my mind!
  There is so many beautiful projects on the internet and every time I see a new one, I want to make it. Then my mind gets overwhelmed and NOTHING happens.

Sunday Morning Wonderings

Outside my window... sunlight with the day heating up fast!
I am listening to... air conditioner run.
One of my favorite things... reading blogs while sipping coffee.
One of my least favorite things...having a restricted diet. A restricted diet causes pain problems. Besides, I love veggies and fruits.
I am missing... playing with my fabrics. My mojo is completely gone. 
I am planning... on attacking this lack of motivation. Each morning I will make myself work with fabric for at least an hour. Hopefully, it will become a habit.
I am remembering ... projects that I want to make.
I am wondering...  how long before I can work my way out of this depression.
I am thinking... the only way to get moving is to start moving!
I am super thankful... for my friends and family.
I am sewing on... nothing although there are Loosey Goosey blocks on the sewing machine.
I am deciding... what to wear on our trip to SA.
My future includes... weddings and birthdays.
I am hoping... the doctor has good news on Tuesday.

Lator!

  I am  moving more but not towards the studio or sewing machines. I have made 1 Loosey Goosey block in May. Not enough to even count yet. Maybe this will be the week!
  Graduation was a success. DGD#4 was Valedictorian and gave a great speech. DGS#9 was as handsome as possible and even clowned after he got his diploma.
  The gym was crowded and very hot! I used up all my energy to be able to stay until the end. Friday and Saturday were rough while my body tried to recover.
  Dr. K gave me another medicine to help with the constant pain. It helps until it wears off but I can only use it twice a day.
  I am doing more and more every day. The tumor has shrunk from softball size to pea size. Hopefully it will keep shrinking.

Gators!
