Gary and I took a trip to Florence, Italy and another to Maui to see Adam, Alicia and Ava. I have two new horses. We had to put down my little 14-year-old Obie and my 19-year-old Lucy kitty this year. I have a new puppy, Hannah. We were adopted by an outdoor barn kitty, Sammie.
They gave me two years after the Whipple. That's the average. 3% make it more than 5 years. I just remember we were so blindsided. I was so sick. It took a couple of years to recover. Though recovered is a relative term.
I am happy with my life. I am proud of the men my boys have become. My Alex is getting married this coming summer to a girl he has know his whole life. I am still weaving and creating and riding and playing. My Hannah is a wonderful companion during the day and gets me out for a walk every day as well.
So. Here's to 6 more...or 66 more! I'll take what I can get!
Meanwhile I did a couple of samples for a baby blanket...My idea is to have big blocks about 5 inches each...9 of them and weave them square with the same colors. These blocks are 1 1/4 inches but I thought it would give my customer an idea of what it will be like. And now that I have taken these two off the loom I am thinking these make good doll blankets!
