I've been in the hospital since Sunday with what first presented as a stroke which was then (mostly) ruled out.
Since then I have been through five human toasters and have consorted with a squadron of vampires, but still have no diagnosis. Now it's hurry up and wait to see what comes next.
I asked that my project bag be brought to me here. It arrived without the project so I started something new from scraps floating around with the threads and such, but my left hand and some other left parts, remain a little stupid. Rough when you are working with sharps.

Been kind of pre-occupied lately battling paper dragons on all points of the compass; IRS, SS, local courts, other legal entities. "Who put me in charge of all this Shit?" she muttered as she stood before the mirror.
Summer spins on and the book is starting to fall into place. It's too hot to do any walking, but working the wet office has become part of the daily (well, three or four days a week) routine.

I started auditioning cloth for this new piece, then interrupted the process to re-watch "Guardians of the Galaxy". Even more fun this time because we left the closed captioning on and I could actually follow the dialogue, such as it is. It's a comic book after all. Just fun.
Washed an unhappy cat and got back to cloth shuffling remarkably unscathed.
Sorry now that I have to set it aside to go to work. If the thunderstorms persist, there could be a miraculous power failure.

Routines are good until they become ruts so I did everything different today, except for writing first thing in the morning.
NO housework. Whatever didn't get done yesterday will wait until Monday.
Pool early, before the sun was too strong.
A Braves game with Charlie napping on my arm
and late in the day, cleaning and restocking the river basket which led to a little tentative stitching.
My fingers feel stiff and dumb, but the cloth felt good and late day light is just as good as early morning.
Soon, I'll add night walking.

I did a little stitching when no one was looking. This light chambray shirt had a corporate logo over the breast pocket that just had to go.
Nothing gets done anymore without my assistant.
Yesterday would have been our 39th wedding anniversary I blogged about it here.
and today our 39th legal anniversary. We had to do it twice because the judge screwed up and it was always nice to have two chances to celebrate on the times that life got in the way.
What does it take to have a long and happy marriage?
A bunch of mothers, aunties and grammas doing the tarantella in the back yard.
Play it again Sam.
