Not much of a post

This will not be much of a post, but better a small one than nothing at all.  I got the blocks all sewn together last week, but still have not started on the borders.

Lorelei is sleeping beside me...we were out about midnight looking for Mr. Toad.  No luck there.   She and I have the hardest time getting to bed at an early hour...her mom was the same way.  We do better when she is in school.
My grand-dog Delta caught her second shrew last night.  She caught one last week or the week before and ate it before her mom could get to her and get it.

Last night when she got tired of it biting her she decided to roll on it!  Her mom got her inside before it went too far and disposed of it later.
Did you ever have something hit you like a ton of bricks?  When Sandra's Bob had his stroke the other day, I was on facebook more than I am on in a month.  I just wanted to know what was going on.

I went back in this blog reading some of what I wrote with Roger's stroke and I just had to stop.  I have thought I would write more about how things are, but I find that it is better to not think too deep.

I am not even sure what I am trying to say....maybe that it has been a rough week or two or three.  In more ways than one.  I have had a couple or three other things really get to me...but I have to learn to live with things and just accept them as they are.

That is great that Lorelei gets to spend the night with you and you two have such fun together.

Not much? You said lots in a few paragraphs! I try not to let things get to me. Sometimes I actually shake my body to get rid of things bothering me. Sometimes it works; sometimes it doesn't. I wish you all the best

I am thinking Bob stirred up old memories.. I do appreciate all your comments and emails. they lifted my spirits. I think you should just stay away from the past and do the now every day. prayers and hugs and love coming your way. I am trying very hard to shake off my worries and I know how hard it is.. hunting toads at midnight? well I never. and I never have and never will... ha ha... you sound like my son David, he can't go to bed at a normal hour. I am an early bird and all of you are night owls. glad you have L to play with for a while... can't decide if it is poor shrew or poor Delta.. did not know a shew was an animal until I met you. I thought it was a grumpy woman

Your quilt is very pretty.
Sorry you're having some bad days. I have added you to my morning prayer list when I walk.
May God give you comfort and a happy day today.

The quilt is beautiful even without the borders. It great to have Lorelei with you and had a great time looking for Mr. Toad! We all have to learn to cope and overcome our difficult times. Have a beautiful day!

Hi Rose, love to hear you and Loreli are enjoying your time together.
I was blindsided by Sandra's Bob having a stroke too. I imagine it made you remember everything you went through after Rogers stroke. My Dad was in a nursing home the last three years of his life and it wasn't a pleasant experience. Recently a friend is going through something similar with her stepdad. It does make me remember what we went through with my Dad and makes me sad. Everything you are feeling is natural.
Thinking about you!
Take care.

I am sure that Bob's illness and surgery stirred a lot of memories.Those memories can be hard to relive.

It's difficult to deal with stress sometimes, and I like you, try to not have to deal with it, but most times, being that it's in the back of my mind, it moves forward and slaps me in the face. I can empathize with you.

What is the pattern of the quilt called? I like it very much.

Ginny Hartzler said...

I know what you mean. The surgery with Bob was awful!! The way they opened his neck...And poor Sandra, she is a worrier anyway. I will find myself thinking about bad times, and just have to tell myself to stop! And try not to think about them too much, but look to the present and future. Well, summer and no school means no bedtime and no schedules!! So you and Lorelei can live it up!! Your quilt is looking lovely!

Hope things level out. My days of sleepovers are long over so I always smile when you talk about yours. I had to look up what a shrew was, and that is one ugly creature. :-)

Rose, your quilt is beautiful. I love your design. It's a stunner.😻
Sorry to hear that life is a bit rough at the moment. I'm sending you a big virtual hug across the ether. Having someone you love suffer a life-changing health emergency is just about the toughest thing we have to face. I like to think in that situation of how we're the luckiest generation in history. None of our predecessors had access to the fabulous health care, super clean homes and abundant food that we do. My great great grandparents lived through famine in Ireland. My great grandma went blind at the age of 62 because of cataracts, whereas my mum had cataracts removed from both eyes a couple of years ago, and has gone back to having the eyesight of Wonder Woman. What a difference a generation or two has made! It's only a small thought, but I hope it helps. xox
