I want to thank each and every one of you who contacted me here, on Caringbridge, through email and phone calls and lifted my spirits. It meant so very much to me. I was really sick and didn't realizes it until I started to get better and wanted to do something other than lay on the couch and watch TV. I don't just lay around and do nothing. I'm pretty busy, well most of the time.
I'm on a very strong antibiotic and it is working. I sleep well at night and take naps in the afternoon. I even taught my classes this past Thursday, although my voice gave out during the 2nd class and my assistant took over teaching. I'm blessed to have a great assistant and an apprentice. Heck, I even wrote my weekend review this time and it feels good to blog again.
The weather finally stopped being either way too hot with high humidity or pouring rain and we got some decent dry weather for a few days. So on Saturday, we went shopping and I went to a local fabric store to pick up a little material.
A friend and class mate gave August a fall coat and I liked the style so I made another one for him for the fall. I haven't sewn in months so it felt good to dig out the material and get to creating something. As you can see from the photos, he was not happy modeling the fall coat while it was 88 degrees outside and a bit muggy.
I also cleaned up the family room as it doubles as our guest room and we are going to have a guest next weekend.
Sunday, we went to worship, got to visit with some old friends there, took a nap, had small group in the evening and in between I worked on the above coat for August, and watched "Firefly".
So that was my weekend, a little sewing, a little cleaning, a lot of pill taking and a whole lot of sleeping. No, it wasn't very exciting, but I was moving and I was talking and I even got to type about it. Baby steps, people!! Baby steps!!
I'm praying that come Tuesday, the doctor will let me have Chemo and we can get back on track. I really want to move on with my life.
How about your weekend?
