Update, sort of




We have another rainy day in Southern California, and while I am starting to feel a bit waterlogged, it is a good thing. Although it hardly seems possible, I heard on the news that we are still 6" below our normal rainfall for the year. If you are not familiar with our So Cal climate, just let me say that hail and snow are extremely unusual here. I can count on one hand the number of times I have seen it in the past 30 years. That's why we get so excited about it, and also why no one knows how to drive in it. Today it is just rain, and hopefully we will get a glimmer of sun by this afternoon. There are new flowers out and I'd like to get some pictures.

Today I am not at work because I have a consultation with my surgeon and some other medical lab stuff. I have had plenty of time to prepare my questions and Jerry will be with me. I have been trying to get things organized at work, but I think I will just have to realize that I cannot make arrangements for every possibility. (Compulsive, who me?) Things will probably go along just fine without me, just not exactly as I would like them to. There will still be an unkown number of working days before surgery since I won't have an exact date until the OR calls to schedule.

The nice pictures are from my last small quilt group gathering. I swear I think I had to try ten times to get them posted with Blogger. I have been working on making a couple of scrap quilts (to use, not art). Funny how that works, I don't think I have any fewer scraps than I did before! They just seem to multiply. I also have some postcard photos to share, so hopefully I can get them posted later.

I really like the small pieces you're holding in the last pic!

Sending good thoughts your way about the upcoming surgery.

Blogger really has been uncooperative lately. Looking forward to seeing your postcards.

Relinquishing control is difficult, but things at work will muddle along. Keep us posted about your surgery date.

You're in my prayers as you prepare for surgery.

I've been thinking about you and checking in every day. I have something to send you, but (help!) I can't find it.

Your small quilts are beautiful (and so are you). Wouldn't mind seeing those closer up with step by step methodology. Praying for you and your doctors.
