Second Day of Autumn

Okay, I feel I should let my readers know that things are beginning to look up again. It may not last long because I went to the thrift shop this morning and consequently may have to go through another (hopefully brief) round of depression during the recovery process, but at least I'm feeling more able to cope. Even the rash on the back of my hand is finally looking better.

This business of being chronically ill is a real learning experience, let me tell you. I get discouraged because I feel so young still. It makes me wonder what in the world my life will be like when I am truly elderly.

I spent yesterday in Regency England again. Apparently I need to get as far away from reality as possible every so often. I picked up Redwall at the thrift shop this morning; I've never read it before even though I've known about it for years. Or I may reread the Magic series by Ilona Andrews instead.

I'm feeling better but I'm not ready to sew yet. Before I try to sew I'm going to have to deal with the piles that have accumulated on my cutting table. At least the ironing board is still pretty clear. And look! My mums have survived the summer and are blooming right on cue. :- )


  1. I wish I had the mums here so I could use them for my photography class. We are doing flowers this week and all I have are a few oleander flowers and a couple of wild daisies. I am not getting nice pics. Your pink flower is super.

    It'd be nice to have a little space of time where you don't get sick wouldn't it?

  2. You just gotta "keep on hangin' on" and that's all there is to it.
    I was so happy to read in the post below that your rope has a least at tiny knot.
    Guess we're just not given the know the "reason" for the things that fall to us. Would be easier if we did.
    There are day when all one can do is say "this too shall end" and "nothing last forever". I remember reading years back the line that "everything has a place where it ends". It seems overly simplistic and yet there is substance there.
    Lose yourself for a bit in those castles and motes *VBS* Sending big hugs, Finn
    P.S. The flowers are looking lovely!

  3. Sue, what a crappy hand you've been dealt. I'm so truly sorry that you have to deal with these issues. I hope you're feeling better very soon. We love reading your words, and seeing your talents in action. You are not alone.


I'm sorry it's difficult or impossible for some of my readers to leave comments. I do appreciate your visits and the kind comments I receive.
