Grandma O'Quilts Rediscovers Herself

What do I like to do???
  How do I care for myself??
A trip today to an antique store..
The two quilts below were tattered.
Taking a picture was free.
 This one below a bit odd...
Self care means...6 pound weights, 25 bi-cep curls a day, among other things.
I tried bigger ones, but they were too much.
Always a picture of our Aoife.  Eight months, sitting up alone!!
Cousins...without Aoife...Oh, well...
Ava turned three years old today.
She is going to preschool in the fall...OMG

My daughter spent today making this back yard swing for her girl.
Aoife's growth seems spectacular to me.  First she crawls rapidly, then she stands up in her crib, then she climbs all the way up the big stairs in their 1907 house.  Now she sits up alone. All by eight months??  How ever does this happen.????  Especially with never having seen her grandmother!!
Got myself focused to make Hourglass from scraps...
Supposed to be a bad storm tomorrow. if so, I will not go out.
If there is a break, I will stop by the grocery store.
Walking with a cart in stores has helped my balance do the 
exercises given to me by the most wonderful physical therapist in the world!!!

This grandmother is finding the hope!!
Trying not to be nervous about the cataract surgery Monday.

You are going to walk that cataract operation on Monday Missus. I will be holding your hand the whole way through it. x

Good luck with your operation on Monday. I know you will come out on the other side, amazed by how vivid the colors are and how beautiful your fabric, your quilts and your sweet grandchildren are when you can see them clearly again!

Good luck on Monday - my dad had his eyes done and it was fine. Your grand-girls are so lovely; I hope you get to see Aoife before too much longer.

Peter K said...

Absolutely. It's a snap, Diane. It'll be done so fast you'll think they just started!

Good luck Monday.

Doing so well! You and the cousins and Aoife too. Who will walk unaided first 🤔 Aoife or Grandma? Go Grandma!

Cherie said...

My hands are sanitized and ready to hold yours today. It's going to be fine . xxx

Self care is good and hurray for good physical therapy. That's so cute - the swing (and its happy occupant)!
