Arm rest & Thanks

In Anchorage the public places do 1% for the Arts. This picture is a busy corner by one of the elementary schools. The piece is designed by Kieth Appel, & it shows best when it's dark out. It's one of my favorite public art pieces. It changes color constantly, & can be very mesmerizing. Kieth's wife Darleen is an active member of our quilt guild, & he used to teach art at UAA here in Anchorage. He did a lecture at our guild once. He was a very interesting speaker.

I'm up early this morning even though I'm not working this week, since I must rest the shoulder. Typing one handed is making blogging harder for me. I thought about making a list of all the things I can do with one hand, but it wouldn't be fun to type or read.

I noticed I made a typo on another blog a couple of days ago, wrote pooped instead of popped. Really changed the meaning of what I was trying to say. I hate when that happens!

I'm off to the Gynecologist's today for my PAP & exam. Something exciting to look forward to (not). Then we have to go say happy birthday to Auntie Ethel. She's made it to 93! It looked touch & go there for a bit, but she made it.

I may try to do a littkle right hand only quilting tonight. I want to do something with those leaves. I have decided we'll just eat the pomegranate since I just looked at Dijanne Cevaal's blog, & she's worked the pom to death, so I'll have to find something else to play around with.

Thanks to all who have wished my sister & me both well. My shoulder is feeling quite a bit better than it was, & Em is home & on the road to recovery. She'll know more about what she has to do next when all the path reports come in. So please keep her in your prayers. & thanks again!

I hope your arm gets all better. Want me to kiss it for you? I don't feel too bad. Kinda weak and washed out today. I hurt myself while draining a tube and just about put my lights out! Otherwise I'm good!
Yeah! What happened to the Tigers this year??

Wow! I go away for a week or two and can't believe all that's happened. It's good to be back and catch up though. I will keep you and your sister in my prayers.
