FALLING


Fall is finally approaching Southern California.  I have the heavy quilt on the bed, and even some leaves are changing colors at last.  Most days I do a doctor thing, yesterday was that CT scan, and afterwards do a Fall clean up somewhere in the house.  

I wore a favorite scarf Sunday Night, and I discovered that something had munched a line of holes through the fabric.  It’s linen.  It’s an Ikat dyed piece too…a resist technique on the yarn before the textile is dyed and woven.  So I went through the scarf drawer yesterday as my Fall cleanup.  Not one single hole did I find anywhere on any other scarf in the drawer.  Darn.  I did find two Dior scarves when I thought I owned only one.  That was a bonus.

No medical appointments today at all.  I checked.  No report from yesterday’s CT scan so far either.  So after writing this, I will be doggedly entering phone numbers for a new paper phone book.  It’s about one inch a side bigger than the last one.  Bigger numbers.  Hooo-rah.

I was Wong.  Dr. Wong, the pulmonologist, just called to say that there’s still some inflammation, but I can begin the chemo.

  1. Oh dear. You must be brave. You are a strong person and I am thinking with the newest medicine this will all be a thing of the past. Keep your eye on the prize and lose yourself in your art and quilting.

    2. I think that may be a new phase of your art genre. Maybe shakey is good?

  3. Such a shame to lose a scarf to a crummy moth!
    When do you start the Wong chemo? Please be brave, and kick butt, too, if you want.

  6. I like your drawing, it's a beautie. Good luck as you begin the chemo treatments.
    You asked about the harbour icing in, it usually doesn't and hasn't in a long time.

  8. I forgot to thank you for deleting my rant about that scam card ad. I just couldn't control myself when I saw the very thing that messed up my life! Gah! Timing is everything in life and that timing was just toooo much! Love you... Let me know how many people are in your first chemo session. I'll make bookmarks to give to the staff and they can pass them out to those who take books to read. I did this for my sister when she had chemo for her breast cancer.

  Tidy, much more so now.     Thread is mixed in with the books as are pens and those ever useful measuring implements.   My desk is a bit...
