WHAT a week. It didn’t start off well – my mom’s next-door neighbor’s house was broken into. In the middle of the day. Broad daylight. For the THIRD TIME. Which of course makes my mother rather nervous. I spent all day Tuesday at her house, just hanging out and basting a quilt. When she moved in 18 years ago, folks didn’t even lock their doors during the day….it was a lovely neighborhood. I wish my mom would get a dog. If you’re a praying person, I’d appreciate prayers for her safety.
Thursday, I went for a meeting with a work assessment guy. I’ll be going to a facility daily for 2 weeks, where they have me in a simulated work environment, to see how I do. I have an awful lot of restrictions – actually, he said I have them ALL, lol – like no reaching, lifting, walking, standing. I’ll be doing clerical work. I only hope there’s not much using the mouse – I have a bad mouse shoulder. We’ll see how I do, see if there’s anything they can do to make it a more friendly environment for my body, and then I’ll start sending out resumes. Oh boy! After 18 years of staying home, it’s making me a bit nervous.
Are you wondering what these pictures are? Well, I'm not going to tell you. It's a secret. *G* You'll find out in 3 posts!
Jenny from Elefantz has been having a November Trims Challenge. She used some Moda cotton tape from a jelly roll to hang her Garden Stitcheries on, and I liked it so much I copied it. I had been trying to find clothesline to use, but when I saw hers, I knew that would work MUCH better. I love it. I'm still going to look for some smaller clothes pins.
Boy I have a lot of holes in my wall. You know what I'd love? A picture hanging system - where the wire runs all along the top of the wall, near the ceiling, and then you hang wires from that to hang your pictures from. I LOVE those. I'm pretty changeable about furniture and pictures, and that would let me change my mind without putting so many holes in the wall. For now I'll just cover as many as I can with little quilts.
Well, I'd better get back to my secret project - enjoy your Sunday!
