It started Friday morning, when I rushed my mother to the ER with chest pain.
Don't worry, she LOVES to have me post pictures of her.
She is stable now, but of course, it entails me running back and forth to the hospital several times a day, taking her things, waiting for the doctor to come around, etc
She did have a slight heart attack, but you'd never know it.
Must be that tough British blood.
On top of which, it's been NINETY+ degrees, which slows a body down some.
Roy does not like the heat, and on the few, short walks I've taken him on in the last couple of days, he persisted in looking up at me like he was sure I was out of my mind.
I usually try to go early in the morning when it is going to be so hot later in the day. It's much nicer for both of us, and it's usually quiet.
Then yesterday on the way to feed the cats at the studio, I had the aura.....you migraine sufferers know what I mean. The jagged light in the corner of your eye. I took some Motrin as soon as I got there, but it was too late, and the rest of the day I was pretty useless.
I put a warp on my 8 harness Baby Wolf, and maybe it's because my new brain doesn't work as well, or maybe I was distracted, or tired, or who knows what the heck else, but I ended up with the warp from H.E.L.L. Me and my migraine were no match for it.
I am still not done with point twill.
I am making a baby dress for my new grandbaby, and realized when I got the front done, that I would not have enough yarn, no matter what the pattern said. And btw, I am not impressed with Debbie Bliss' instructions. They suck.
Good thing I am stubborn. Or so it's said. And I called the store, they had a couple of skeins of the same dye lot left, and they are sending them to me.
I am going to make little mary jane shoes to go with it.
It's not newborn sized though, it's for when she gets on her feet. See me grinning???
This afternoon, the sky opened up. It rained and rained and rained, then thunder and lightning so close I thought it hit the house next door. Then sirens in the distance.
When it stopped, I decided to take Roy for a walk in what I thought would be nice, cool, after the rain trip. But as we got down the road, the sky opened up.......again.
I'm sure he thinks I'm crazy now.
Not to be deterred, we waited an hour, and tried it again. This time was a go.
And now, the sun is shining, and it is POURING once again.
But the flowers need it.
And I'm ready for the week.
