I've been creating but not as much as I'd like to.. with everything else going on in my life it seems that my mind gets much to distracted. I sit down to create and I can't seem to pull things together and I get all frustrated with my creative mind..
But I have created a few nice gatherings while fading in and out of creativeness.
Back In the Colonial Days the Pineapple design was a sign of Hospitality so I Created this beautiful Pineapple Pantry Gathering. Its filled with some of my Fresh dried Herbs from my Herb Garden and a beautiful Copper Pineapple punched backing & Wood Pinapple bowls. I really likehow this turned out.
I love the heartland Blue peaking out..
I have really struggled in dealing with my health issues and the limits it's put on my life as I knew it. To the point of breaking down at my Dr's office explaining I simply don't know this person who lives inside this body thus I have no clue what to do with her...That's a scary statement both for me and for my Doctor..but in all honesty I really don't know who I've become..I was an active, fun person who was always on the go, always active, either Cleaning houses, Creating 20 or more gatherings a week or socializing with friends & family.
That person no longer exist and ya want to talk about feeling lost..Just when I seem to get a handle on things along comes something else to trip me up. The most recent trip up comes in the form of yet another Surgery to be scheduled in the near future. The Tumor in my Sinus has grown and now blocks off my tear duct in my right eye. Which is causing pressure from fluid build up behind the eye. Its good to finally understand what causes the Ice Pick stabbing pain in my eye. I'm not looking forward to another surgery. But if I don't have the surgery I will probably lose my eye sight in the right eye...
My back has continued to deteriorate so much that every minute of every days is filled with pain, now its going down my left leg driving me nuts. It wakes me up out of a dead sleep, so I'm tired & sleepy all the time.
The good news is both the test nerve blocks worked so insurance will cover a permnant nerve block for my lower back... Thank god..but sadly the soonest they can get me into surgery to get the nerve block is July 2nd....that's going to be the longest 2 months of my life I think...
If all that isn't enough my last Blood Test showed my Cholestrol has shoot sky high... and my Thyroid numbers are to high again so adjusting my thyroid meds again..my Potassium is running low for the past 3 months...My sugar levels are high one week and low the next.......all of which is steeling away any motovation or energy I might have........its like enough already..alright!
I did finally take a weekend and go have some fun a couple weeks ago. Went to hear my friend John's band play on a Friday night and then went to a Boater Bash on Saturday night...had a great time with my friends and that helped to lift the spirits.
I have been going to Kelley's island for the past 3 weekends and that always makes me smile being on the Island...so good to be around all my boater friends...
I spent the last two days cleaning my house and yard in Port Clinton...been months since I've been there and it needed some TLC... much of the things that needed done I couldn't do, so had to find someone to help..
She was a pure blessing helping me get it all done.. The place actually looks great inside and out...for now!
Guess that sums things up here in Ohio....Life goes on!
Until we meet again may your days be filled with sunshine and happy moments!
