Shots clouds and wind

Good evening!

Today was shot day for me and early this morning. ¬†I had a Leukine and a B-12 shot…one in each arm and had an appointment for lab, however I decided since I only got a couple of hours sleep last night and was extremely tired…I modified my lab appointment for tomorrow.

I see my Oncologist Thursday, I can only hope the lab reports are in for her ūüėČ ¬†but it simply wasn’t in the cards for me for this day.

It has been mostly cloudy all day and windy, a tiny bit of sunshine but not much or for long. ¬†Needless to say I prefer the cooler weather and with the heat we have had with more coming, it was rather refreshing! ¬†I just took my trash bin out for pick up in the morning, very windy, chilly, looks and feels like rain but not in the forecast! ¬†Go figure. ūüôā

What is your weather up to?

I had ordered fabric from a vendor on Etsy from South Carolina just a few days ago actually, and just received it this afternoon.

This fabric will be for kitchen windows and it is 1/8 black and white gingham. 60% cotton and 40% poly. ¬†Very nice and this particular vendor had such a huge selection of all types of fabrics. ¬†She is an extension of her own fabric shop in South Carolina. ¬†Extremely reasonable as was her shipping and I must say ‘fast’!

I have one window over the kitchen sink and a door window to sew for. ¬†Currently there is an off white at the door and yellow and white gingham in a much larger check…maybe the checks are an inch at the kitchen sink window.

Curtains my parents selected, and they have served the kitchen very well, but time for a change.  It will go well with my own decor items I have here and there and everywhere.

So…I am going to be busy at the sewing machine ūüėČ

The club house is having a Taco’s Tuesday affair on May 9th. ¬†I normally don’t go to these events, but two of my favorite people are the hosts and both of them are excellent cooks!

Tacos, rice, beans and dessert for $5.00 and that includes one free margarita.  I will donate my free margarita, enjoy iced tea, and have a good time, should be fun.

I have only participated in the shuffleboard Tuesdays and found it to actually be a lot of fun!  Since my diagnosis, and all the running back and forth to the medical center I stopped going but should really resume.  A great bunch of people that enjoy it as much if not more than I do.

Bingo, poker, canasta, golfing, various excursion trips, and always a pot luck for any occasion, ladies luncheons.  Always a variety of things to enjoy.  We also have a nice pool and spa, a lovely laundry room and a good sized library.  Pretty nice actually and I am happy here.

There are many, many tall palm trees, pine trees, entryway planters with flowers and the homes are not all lined up like loaves of bread at the bakery! ¬†Lol!! ¬†My lot is a great size as many are and a few that are smaller but I can’t complain. ¬†I am on Social Security and the space rent, utilities are reasonable so I am here to stay…unless I was to win a lotto then I will stay and have things upgraded. ¬†Things my parents wanted to do but with my dad passing just two years after his retirement from cancer some plans just did not come to fruition. ¬†This is why I want to do a little at a time with my sewing.

A new week has begun and this day is nearly coming to a close. ¬†I was able to take an hours nap…not much of a nap but at least it was something before getting up to do things I left behind this morning and prepare dinner.

I am looking forward to a productive week!

Will you be doing anything special this week?

Have a wonderful evening and a great tomorrow!!
