normal again

Thank you to all my friends who gave me such wonderful advice and information on vertigo. Today I can say that I am back to normal again and I hope this NEVER, EVER comes back!Had some catching up to do. Got some packages together to mail out...
I wasted a whole week of my first week of vacation being sick! So today I can say is my first real day of vacation. Started out with a walk..made 8 blocks for the girls on Weds night for our friendship group exchange... Had to do some sewing... it was like I was having withdrawls..
Tried 2 different kinds. One above is a miniature block, one below is 6 1/2". Liked the big one better with these fabrics.
Worked in the yards, did a little house work, and now the hubby is on his way and we are going to Mimi's cafe for dinner! Yahoo!

basil plants

These are the tops off my basil plant. I went to throw them away and I noticed what a cute little arrangement it made so I just stuck them in some water.

Anyone out there ever have to deal with vertigo? I have been crazy sick the last 4 days and they ( the doctor's, yes, 2 doctors!) say that's what I am dealing with. How much longer do I have to take this? Med's are really not helping, I guess they are... the world is not spinning out of control. just spinning! I have important plans for Weds that I don't want to miss! Already missed a wedding on Saturday and a dentist appt. today. UGGGGG!

yesterday's lunch...

Had lunch at Red Robin yesterday with all the girls from work. Less than 2 hours later... I was sick as a dog! Had the Chicken Caesar wrap that came with watermelon. I think it was the watermelon, it looked funny, 1st one tasted ok, the 2nd one, heh... feeling better now. Kept my breakfast and lunch down, which wasn't much. Stayed home from work, had the worst headache!

2nd pillow...

This is the 2nd pillow I made from the old tablecloth. I didn't have enough to make a ruffle, so Marian made me this cute flower and then I put the rose charm, necklace thing in the middle.
I had a different flower also to add, but it just didn't look right, simple is best sometimes.

happy dance...

oh my gosh... I am sooo doing the happy dance right now! Our computer had been acting up, so Mark took it to the $99 guy down the street, which a week ago I would not recommend to anyone. After the last 2 nights Mark spending 7 hours online in with them, I would so take that comment back. It's back and working and takes me 5 minutes to do a post instead of 1 1/2 hours! I love the new computer. Cost more than $99 though, our hard drive had died. I had been complaining for like 3 months something wasn't right. But... it was ALWAYS my fault! Hmmmmm... I DON"T THINK SO!
This embroidery I have been working on for about a 2 months. (My REAL first attempt at it) is called Garden Gate. It actually is a quilt pattern and these pieces go around the edges. So cute. I did one portion and am going to frame it and hang it in my sewing room. Excuse the toes showing in the bottom picture. Oh...check out the floor it's on..
My birthday and Mother's Day had came and went without not so much anything. I got flowers for my birthday but that was nothing, Mark always brings me flowers. So, after me making a snide remark one day.. I think he felt bad. When I went away for the girls weekend, he took everything out of my sewing room, painted the walls, bottom half chocolate brown, top tan, took the carpet out, put down wooden floors, put everything back, in the same spot to be exact and bought me a flat screen t.v. I guess he made up for it, what do ya' think?! Love ya, hun!
