Going to town
Today was the day for the dreaded Mammogram. Dreaded only because I hate it, but grateful that for me, it's a routine procedure. Ladies, don't put it off!
The receptionist asked too many questions, where do I work, what do I do, etc., and my patience was finally at it's limit and I asked, "just why do you ask all these unrelated questions?" She replied, "In case someone steals your identity!" Duhhhh, like if someone stole my identity, they would have a mammogram? ROTFL !!!!!
While I was waiting in 'the room' with that equipment, I glanced at the stack of magazines, and what do you think I found? TWO quilt books! Turns out the technician was a newbie quilter, her mother-in-law is an acquaintance in my quilt guild, and when I left, she gave me a present of blank x-ray film for applique design! That dreaded event turned out unexpectedly pleasant!
Going to town is a 120 mile round trip. I worked in the morning, and I am definitely a Senior Citizen, and I missed my nap so it's a big deal to do all the doctoring, shopping, etc, and make it home before dark (in case deer are on the road - CRASH, you know) -- I'm worn to a frazzle, and didn't even stop at the Quilt Shop! I found this new set of dishes -- they make me so happy, I want to make new yellow and white checked kitchen curtains!
I stopped at K-Mart, wanting to look at a humidifier,and was surprised that they didn't sell humidifiers, they sold Humidificators! Just spelling that silly word makes me laugh. I told DH, and we spent the evening coming up with new words, the thermostaticator, refrigicator, dishwashicator ... where do these new words come from?
Back to my sewing machine and binding a quilt for Show and Tell Saturday at Quilt Guild. Photo soon of the Spools Quilt.
Hope you all have a lovely quilt-y weekend.
