And here's my excuse for not getting more done...
My mom and sister went to the Biltmore last week. And well, I kept the kids. Do I really need to say more??
As you can see - I got some leaves completed. And I once again have a new respect for those mothers who still find time for needle and floss. Ah, the bliss of having older children!
I did promise a shot of the other project in my life -
by Heritage Crafts
Yeah, this is the project with the crazy instructions. It calls for 2 strands and 1 strand cross stitches of the same color for shading. I'm dubious as to whether this is actually working on my piece.
Sorry the stitching pictures are dull. Cloudy day in Ohio. Haven't checked the weather in a few days and not sure if this will burn off or today will be cloudy. Just checked - am clouds and pm sun - high 57. Then I went on to see the temps will not reach above 68 for the next 10 days. Fall is officially here!
In a weird stressy mood today - have appointment to see doctor tomorrow. Get to see results of blood work completed 3 months ago (obviously nothing to see or they would/should have called before now) and I get a physical. Let me plainly say, I dislike the medical profession. Dentists seem to always say, "Oh, that filling you had in 1975 needs replacing - it's leaking." Here let me charge you an arm and leg. The regular doc can't see beyond the fact you are over weight and EVERYTHING that hurts on you is related to the weight. There could be no other cause for any issue you may have - it's all the weight. And the back guy I saw last year - completely discounted the fact I hurt like h*** and told me the pain was all in my head. Really, that's why doing dishes causes me to hunch over like I should be a bell ringer at Notre Dame?!?!
After taking several deep breaths and mentally saying, "Ohmm" I can now complete this post. I will say I KNOW there are caring medical professionals out there. Men and woman who do a job that I never want or could do. I know they deserve a fair and reasonable monetary reward for their services and that the over head for their businesses is astronomical.
But, I have fillings from 1975. I am overweight. And the back doctor really did tell me it was all in my head. And I come from a lllooonnnggg line of family members who do not like to go to the doctor. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
If you hear a frustrated scream coming from my neck of the woods tomorrow - it's just me - venting!
Hope your week is shaping up to be better than mine!
