What a place. 8 AM and by my self. In a part of the city I had not been to. A new industrial area. Nice new building with several doctors of the Spine and nervous system and even a Chiropractor. She asked if I had been to one. So I guess they approve for some things. Oh, there is a Physical Therapist also. So they have it all.
Was surprised I didn't have to disrobe only take off my /bra , No metal.Oh and my watch. You have to step up on this big table with this huge thing over you. But she put a pillow under my head and something to rest my legs on with them bent up, so was really fairly comfortable. Good thing since she said it would take about 35 minuets and it would be noisy. I asked for some music which you really couldn't hear. But helped when it was a little quiet.
That was it. They gave me a CD which I thought I could put in the computer and see. But then thought better of it. Wouldn't know what I was looking at anyway. The next day I stopped in the doctors office to see if they wanted the CD and she had just gotten the report from them. The Doctor wanted me to see a specialists, Yep right out there at this same office. I was to call and get an appointment. She also said when I asked what it said that I had a bulging disk and Arthritis and some other stuff I didn't recognise. That disk thing was bad enough.
So I now have to wait until April 8 to find out what is wrong and Hubby wants to come home if he can at the end of the week. He is doing good but still hasn't started to walk at all. At least they have his sugar at a good level.
Thought I would show you the last thing I finally finished. Marcie's Star all finished and quilted. Just in time for next Christmas. I do think I will put it on the spool cabinet in the living room for awhile.
Have been finishing up a few other things. Like making the label for the back of the ChexMix quilt.
I also have a Sunbonnet Sue quilt that a friend asked me to hand quilt for her and I have it all marked except for the border. Then to get it basted and ready to start as soon as I finish quilting my Christmas quilt. Pictures for that one will follow later.
That's about all for now. Had another nice weekend with my daughter and grandson. She spent a couple times yesterday and then at noon today with her Dad. So thankful she is close enough to come and help a bit. Thanks for all lthe comments we appreciate it.

About two weeks ago my hubby got so weak from High blood sugar that he couldn't get out of his lift chair. I had to call 911, they are getting to know us real well. Had them take him to the hospital and wanted to make sure they got that blood sugar down. I knew if would be a long haul. He spent 4 days there before being transported down here to the nursing home for rehab. Fortunately they have gotten his numbers down in the 100s.
So this beautiful arrangement on the kitchen table looks real good.
Yes, I am getting some very good nights sleep, trying to get relaxed and some things done here at home. Am only going to the nursing home once a day. even though it is less than two miles from here. I just have to have some time to myself and my online friends.
My daughter was up last weekend and we had a good visit and she would go in and spend lots of time with her Dad. She's having a good time with her very first class of special kindergarten students. Has gotten two of them reading.
One thing I have gotten done is moving some leaves from the front and out of the perennial garden at the back and this is what is blooming already
The first primroses . I wish all of them I've planted there would have grown like this. There is another couple plants in there that haven't started yet. You can see some leaves weren't taken away either. The light is the sun.
On the north side of the house I have two nice size Rhododendrons. But it looks like the deer got really hungry.
See that naked limb sticking down. There is a bud on the end. They are not suppose to like those leathery leaves. In fact they are like the mountain Laural, poisonous. But guess not this year. I had removed all the leaves that pile up under and around the bush Here's another view
and another naked limb. There is a couple other bushes in the garden at the back of the house that they eat some leaves off also. Those I don't care.
I have been trying to get some things done. Have completely finished the Chex Mixx quilt. That is the binding. Still need to make the label. We all sent in 3 inch square siggies which I will sew together and make a large label to sew on the back of the quilt but in the mean time the quilt is resting on hubby's bed
This is more of a closeup and the next one shows the whole quilt. I'm proud that I machine quilted this myself. But still like the hand quilted ones the best.
I'm trying to get my Christmas quilt finished so am spending a lot of time in my lounge chair watching TV in the living room. Watching the programs I want to watch. Like my soap in the afternoon. Right now I feel like a nap. Don't go up to the home till around five. They don't take the trays down to the ones that don't go to the dinning room until after everyone is served up there. He will not go down there to eat. Likes to watch his Mash at 5 till 7. So I am there for his supper to help but he has to eat by himself. I can't baby him like I did before. He has been standing up a bit more each day and says he's getting stronger. So we will see if he gets strong enough to come home. But I know I am going to have to have some help.

My daughter was home for the weekend so we went down early expecting a crowd early. Not. We were the second ones there. This is the entrance to the patio area in the back. The entrance for guests is just to the left of this. Going into the newer part of the building which is all brick. I was surprised how small the room seemed to be. But a fireplace was on the back wall with a fire going. Well, gas logs but good heat. Two big inviting chairs and a table with flowers which the Inn keeper said was their check-in area. You could sit , have a glass of wine and enjoy.
This is the view from the back of the patio looking into the Inn; In another picture I will show what is on the other side of that large door in the center.

So in the meantime I have gotten this quilt top finished. It started last year with Kim sending me the blocks of flowers that she didn't want. Then when I was in Kansas City a year ago for a weekend retreat with my friends one of the things I was looking for in the shops they took us to were pieces of this collection. It is Thinbleberries of course Called Gardener's touch and came with these printed flowers. So this is my version.
I also have been trying to get a quilt machine quilted but my time to go to the basement where it is , is very limited. Hopefully I'll have that to show pretty soon.
About the only other thing I take pictures of is these wonderful sunsets we have . This was just a couple weeks ago. Not quite as good at the one at the top of my blog. But still good I think.
I have been trying to get a blog written about the open house of the Inn but I can't seem to get the pictures right so until I do you will have to wait for that. I just have to say it is spectacular. You can sure see that Nora has traveled the world as she made her Inn as good as any you will visit. More about it later.
Sorry I have been so long in between blogs. Even have one of my faithfuls write to see if something was wrong. Guess I better get something written every week. Really haven't had time to read many blogs either. Thanks for dropping by. More a little later this week.
