At first glance as the page opens, it’s a rusted-out skeleton of a very old car with its license plate falling off out of sheer age and neglect. Then you look a little closer… Czech it out! If it were another nationality, we could call it an American I-doily singing in the rain.

Spent some time knitting, coming up with a whole cool new lace idea, putting the project at hand aside to go swatch and go write, not finished tweaking, glad I could do a bit more now. Getting there. Mostly.  Since March 15th I’ve lost seven pounds I really didn’t need to lose, but this morning it had stabilized.

Just please keep that Crohn’s away from me.  If tonight is like last night in reaction to eating a good dinner, (look, Ma! no Zofran!), I’m calling my GI.

The Cooper’s hawk swooped in and landed behind me in the late afternoon during a brief break in the rain, the misted sunlight intensifying the colors in her feathers. Gorgeous. We regarded each other a few minutes.  I think things are going to be okay.

(Ed. to add Friday evening: last night was a far better night than Wednesday night. Thank heavens.)

I czeched it out and it is awesome. The crochet stitch is apropiate as it looks like a version of mile a minuet stitch. Thanks for the link. I’m glad to hear that you are feeling better.

Great link–I had to share it, I hope you don’t mind. Intrigued by your new lace idea… and I hope you continue to feel better!

Glad to hear you are starting to feel better. Keep it up!

Just now recognized the pun in the title of you previous post. Gonna have to pay a lot closer attention from now on.

I wouldn’t try to drive that vehicle. Or even sit in it.

Keep getting weller.

I’m Prague-tically falling out of my chair in amazement.

And I’m happy you continue to improve. Crossing my fingers that there will be no need to call you GI.

Slow and steady hon.

Prague-tically falling out of my chair—-twinsetellen is a hoot.

Like everyone else, I hope you’re on the mend without having to call your medical professionals.

I’ve got a whole bunch of extra pounds that you are welcome to have, if you promise not to give them back. Fair enough? Will send up a raspy prayer on your behalf while nuking yet another mug of chicken broth. [My PCP raised an eyebrow at me today while grinning, “Wow, you sound like Brenda Vaccaro!” Yeah, I do.]

Interpreting the tease of calling the GI doc as a good thing – as in, whew, close call but all’s well that ends well?

How luck you are to have the peace and beauty of the birds that come to visit your yard! I am still in wait of warmer days, as I have few vantage points from inside my home and want to sit on the porch a spell.

Keeping you top of the prayers list and still “in your face”!!
