Hope it went well for you today Paula.
I had some not so good news yesterday. The pathology report came back and the percentage of invasion was more than 50. So I am now being referred to another specialist and it is likely that I will be undergoing some radiation treatment. Hoping I hear soon when the appointment will be. I was hoping that the doctor I saw yesterday would tell me that everything was fine and I could go back to work but now the next doctor has to determine my return to work date. this is tough when I don't even feel like I am sick.

Heading to the pool to try out my flotation belt today and do some water walking! Let's hope it goes alright! But really the test for me will be when I have done it at least 3 days in a week. I'll know then more accurately if it is something my hip arthritis will allow me to do!

Have a great day all. Let us know how your day is going and how your goals are coming along. emoticon

MaryBeth,
My mother always hated sewing she prefers to knit. But I thought I'd give it a go. I brought a very good sewing machine 2nd hand. It was well looked after it said it had just had it's service. A Janome. So I'll see how I go. Good to try something different.

Glad you like music it's a great hobby. My son Jake (nearly 21) plays lead Gituar in a band they have an album out and he really likes that. As children I made him and my daughter take Piano lessons now he has switched to playing Gituar and my daughter does other things now.

What instrument do you play?

Hope it cools down for you soon. Here is it still cold evenings and mornings nice outside in the sun in the daytime but coldish inside still. I can't wait for summer.

Have a good one.

Good luck with the sewing class. Not something I would be interested in. My hobby is music.

The weekend was really nice with family. Unfortunately I brought home a lot of my salad - gave some to my daughter to take. There is always so much food at the pot luck reunion and the hot food seems to go first.

I stayed inside most of today - it is so hot and humid outside. guess there is more of the same coming tomorrow.

Doing lots of household jobs today, getting ready for a visit from my daughter, granddaughter and son-in-law this weekend. Tomorrow we are going to my paternal family reunion (Quenneville) so I started to prepare a tuna macaroni salad to take for the pot luck (husband is finishing it up for me as he is the one who is creative in the cooking department). Catching up on Spark now as I won't be on tomorrow.

So far this summer has not been my best. First of all, I have three sinus infections, one right after the other, so due to this I am gong to have to come off my biologic medications for my rheumatoid arthritis. Not good at all. I am trying to remain positive and move every day. This group is inspirational for me right now.

unfortunately i forgot that other parts of the world are in winter. so how is your winter going?

yes, i did make some money at the craft show....i make wreaths from the tops of cornstalks and decorate them...i have 2 pictures on my spark page of those type of wreaths. then in November i start to make wreaths from Douglas Fir greens to sell where i work on the wreaths.

i'm back to the old grind tomorrow with crimping the wreaths. i want to take pictures and post a blog on the wreaths i make in the fall sometime soon.

For us in Australia it is winter. I am looking forward to the summer. I like the heat rather than the cold.

Hope your knees are feeling much better now. What sort of craft do you do? Hope you made some money out if it, if that's what you had intended!

Myself I am in the process of getting unwanted items together for a Yard sale or as we call it here in Australia "Garage Sale". Have lots of stuff that is no longer needed and as the saying goes "what is one mans trash is another mans treasure".

My husband and I had a short three day time away during the first week of July. I had abdominal surgery on July 13th so I am spending the rest of the summer recovering. I should be enjoying the 'down' time now till I go back to work in September. Only thing is that I find sometimes that I get a little bored - I can get out and do a little bit, have to pace myself or I end up sleeping all day the next day. I have taken the opportunity to go through some photographs and put them into albums. Hard to believe I have gathered them up without placing in albums for close to fifteen years. It will be nice when I finally get this project done. I've done much better with digital photos when putting them on USB sticks - they get labelled right away.
I do not have a green thumb unfortunately. Hubby does the grass cutting but he does not seem to do weeding. That is usually my job but since surgery it has not gotten accomplished. I wish he would go out and buy a new weedeater which would at least trim up some stuff and make our yard look a bit neater. But I guess it is not a priority item for him to spend money on.
Next weekend I am going to travel a couple hours to my family reunion. My sister, daughter and granddaughter will be going with me. We have family heirlooms that get handed down and my daughter is receiving the family quilt this year, she will pass it on to the next person in line next year. It went through my generation first and is now going through the next generation. It is my father's side of the family getting together - there were 18 children and only one sibling left. It is nice to see a lot of my cousins at this gathering.
There is a theatre playhouse in my town so I will go to a couple of summer shows there too.

I'm spending my summer recovering from two surgeries. I have a small container garden
with peppers & tomatoes and some herbs. Sure nice to get fresh items from the garden.
I've gained weight & finding it extremely hard to lose. Had my thyroid removed, so that will make it harder, not impossible. Just need to get myself more motivated.

Let me try and start this thread. i didn't go anywhere big this summer...just to a few local fairs. i have been making wreaths since the third week of July for a craft show coming up. i have found out standing on the cement floor even with a heavy rubber mat under my feet still makes the arthritis in my knees ache. i have a small garden and some of the veggies i have been picking and have eaten some.....i have squash and cucumbers at the moment that can be eaten...there is nothing like having a fresh cucumber to eat for a snack or a veggie at a meal. i have enjoyed a couple of small yellow squash sautéed with onion and any other veggie that i can find and then added a left over sweet sausage and some spaghetti sauce and this made a delicious lunch.

Did you go somewhere, planning on going somewhere, did or planning on doing something special. do you have a garden and how is it doing? How has your arthritis been acting for you with the summer weather and activities.
