|one of my older quilts|
I am writing this on Wednesday, the day before I was to go for my second vaccine shot. I spoke to the doctor's office today and told her of my reactions to the first shot... hives on legs, inflammation, swollen gums and she said not to get the second dose. Especially as it's given in a non medical facility that is not close to a hospital. I am of two minds about this... I need to be protected but my body is not able...She said these are allergic reactions not normal ones.
Thing is folks... we need the majority of citizens to get the vaccine to make the country safe. If a lot of people refuse to take the offered safety from this deadly disease, then I won't be safe. They will keep it going, and it will continue to morph into variants that are even stronger.
If everyone doesn't do their best to help, we'll all be unsafe.Just like with smallpox, measles, and polio.
some people have politicized this disease... just know that even the former president got the vaccine and even says he is responsible for it's development. He had covid but he had access to the Nation's best care, do you? I don't.
So today while my husband is standing in line for a shot at safety, I have more research to do to know when, what or how to take a risk at getting a second shot. The doctor said I might handle the J& J as mostly younger women get the blood clots... o.m.g. If I try getting the second dose she said to do it in a hospital. So....
I liked having supplies to make art
I liked watching ink spread on my calendar page
I liked having ingredients this week to make good things to eat.
and watching videos like Oprah's Spirit Sunday and Dr Brian Weiss and Shirley MacLaine discussing past lives, I liked TED talks on the roku,
I liked reading and listening to good stories.
This was delightful in every way... a retired detective is given a baby elephant that turns out to be a blessing... it's a mystery set in modern day Mumbai and is read wonderfully on audio. I laughed out loud so many times although it's not a comedy as such. It is funny in the way life is funny. I ordered the next book in the series and started it yesterday.
I like that when I have occular migraines I have the time to lie down with an ice pack til they pass. I've had 4 in the last week, I believe from people putting down lawn chemicals around us.
I like that dh found natural fish supplements for our sorry grass
I did a big sort and "organization" of my finished quilts this week, whew! I've made about 250 and kept most of them from king to small wall art. I keep them in order for my lectures mainly, but they got jumbled in the move and I didn't want to do the heavy lifting to sort them. Now they are ready to put on shelves, hopefully allowing me to bring them out on a rotating basis in the house.
I like that we had a couple days of cool weather this week, a respite from the heat that accumulates in the master BR making it hard to sleep
I loved the last episodes of Queen's Gambit, and The Crown, and this season of Brokenwood and Murdoch mysteries that has come available.
I'm tired of my fave tv shows saying they're new when they are repeats (This is Us and Good Doctor)
I liked hand sewing the binding on my painted bird quilt meaning I finished the quilting and it's done! I like hand sewing my tiny tumbling blocks while watching tv.
I love the color red, color of this month on rainbow scrap challenge.
Milo: I like getting my own pancake, or muffin. When my pawrents have to clean my bad ear they give me treats after. I drag my paws into the ear-cleaning-room, but run to the treat cabinet when done!
Mama and Daddy love me, even when I put up a fight!
Please visit these fine folks keeping lists and let me know if you posted a list so I can add you in!
