Long Day

Today has been a long day for me. I didn't know that transportation was taking someone else beside Hubby and I for his ultrasound. They weren't in the same location so it took longer to get back across town to get us. Now we have to wait on the results. Why do you always have to accommodate them, but then you have to wait?  
How would you like an Easter Basket?  My daughter-in-law and the boys made all of the baskets for a lady. They would just look good setting on your table with napkins in them. They are so cute, but she didn't want to see another one for a while. She painted all of the faces on the baskets with the boys help. She let them paint them with the solid colors. 
I thought I would show you a couple of my latest tea towels that I have made. I have had very busy hands plus I worked a little more then I normally do because the one I fill in for hasn't been walking for the past couple of weeks. They gave her a lot  of steroids and she is walking, but not the best. 
 My grandson had a good weekend at the State Horse Judging competition. He finished 13th out of 65 kids and their team finished 4th out of 15. We are really proud of him and he was happy that he beat some of the girls that give him a hard time. They had a good weekend until coming home when the weather changed. We got rain, sleet, and some snow on Saturday night, but not enough to cause us any problems. 
I wanted  you to to meet Myrtle Turtle. I have been doing a lot of embroidery lately. The hands have to keep very busy. I want to think of other things instead of what is going on right now. I went to my youngest grandson's Blue and Gold Banquet on Saturday evening. His mom and dad were both honored for the work they do in scouting along with him getting his awards. His dad has become an assistant cub master and his mom works behind the scene helping. They made a rabbit cake for dad and his cake for the auction. I will show pictures in another post along with his rocket. 
I have some things coming up with all of the boys. Next month, my youngest grandson race their go carts down the hill for scouts. I want to watch that and my middle grandson is going for his MRI. He is losing his hearing in one ear. They don't know if it is something he was born with just now showing up or something that could have happen when he got thrown from his horse last summer. They want to check him out before they just  prescribe him a hearing aid. Their family doctor sent them to a specialist. He is only 9 My oldest keeps reminding me that he will be old enough to drive in June with a license driver. I still don't know if I am ready for that. 
I am going to call it a day, but I am still here. Just a little hit and miss. You all have a good week, stay safe, and warm.

You do manage to keep busy, my friend! And you still whip out those tea towels faster than lightening. I really like the little turtle! And the Easter baskets are precious.

Please let us know how the ultrasound turns out. Too bad it's always a hassle.

Sending much love, dear.

He may have an acoustic nueroma, Shirley. My hubby had one and they did surgery on they use laser surgery. Hope it is not much of anything.

I am so sorry you have to wait on your test results once again. That is so awful that you are just left hanging in limbo once again.

Cute little Easter baskets and your embroidery is just as lovely as always-

God bless you, Shirley- You are a good wife, mother and grandmother~ xo Diana

Oh Shirley those bunnies are adorable and your embroidery work is stunning. You are so gifted! (I have a you use 2 or 3 strands of thread? My mom taught me to use 3, but so many patterns and friends who embroidery use 2!) Just curious!

Sorry about all your waiting time, I know how frustrating that can prayers continue to be with you.

Boy, what wonderful grandchildren you have! They bring so much joy to your life! smile..

I have prayed for your grandson with the hearing loss. Such sweet baskets and towels too. :)
Our daughter now has her temps too.

Shirley, Beautiful bunnies. I love your needle work. Congrats on all the honors your family has achieved. I hope all the test results help find a solution. Blessings to you sweet Shirley, I know some times your plate is way too full. xoxo,Susie

My goodness you have had so much going on, sounds like your grandsons are keeping you very busy, I will say a prayer for the middle one with the hearing issue. I had several concussions as a child and have gradually lost a good deal of my hearing, good luck.

Debby said...

You are a busy one. I am sure that you are thankful for that. Even though I get tired caring for my grandchildren I feel so blessed to have them keep me busy. You have to be so proud of your grandsons and their parents. I think it is all genetics from you.
So sorry to hear about your 9 year olds hearing problems. I hope they will find a simple remedy for him. I will say prayers for him.
Sorry about you having to wait and wait and wait. You must have a lot of patience.
Take care my friend.

God bless you Shirley. You're always thinking and doing for others. Always on the go. I do pray that you'll get the results tomorrow so you won't have to wait. I pray for you and your family at least once each day. You grab those minutes here and there to just sit yourself down and relax. Hugs and Lots of Colors to You Sweet Lady.
