Here, There, Not Everywhere....

 Tuesday, August 14, 2012

So, I was going to change the background here.  But, I thought...oh, well...winter will be coming soon.  Maybe when I have a little time, I'll switch to a fall scene.

As for now, the background is the same.

Me...I am the same, yet not the same.  Still living with Cara, Ryan and Lydia.  There are ups, downs and in-betweens, but all and all, a good situation.

I help them, they help me, and well....what can I say...my Lydia creates so much laughter and joy in my life!!

I've had some health issues this summer....a swelling in my neck that comes and goes.  After numerous tests and a biopsy, it was found that I have multiple nodules on my thyroid.  The biopsy of these was, oh, so thankfully, benign!!

But, the swelling is what is known as a thyroglossal cyst...apparently something that developed when I was just an embryo. 

It is now to the point that I have the swelling and pain almost every other week.  The solution for this problem is, of course, removal of the cyst.  This is going to occur next Wednesday, August 22--an outpatient procedure--and I shouldn't be down and out for more than a few days.

I have also transferred from one department to another for my same employer.  I am thoroughly enjoying my new work and my new coworkers.

One of my coworkers quilts with a group of ladies once a week.  Their church host an Apple Festival in October, and the quilt is auctioned off.  All the proceeds are donated to a needy family in the area.  I've been helping out with this as much as I possibly can.

Here's last year's quilt:




I was excited to find this group since quilting is something I've always wanted to learn to do.


Also, I am leading another Small Group through my church with three other women. I feel so blessed to have been selected to participate in this study.  The series is called "Me, Myself and Lies"....about the truths that we believe about ourselves through lies fed into us by others. 


Oh, and before I go....here's my Lydia at the beach this past weekend....how she has grown...talks about everything and anything:




That's all for this evening and I'm going to try my hardest not to stay away for so long!!

Sounds like so much good going on in your life. So thankful your cyst is benign. Praying for your surgery and recovery. What a beautiful quilt that is. I LOVE quilts but I don't seem to have the bent to make them myself. Our youngest daughter just moved to Colorado and is unemployed still so she has gone to learn quilting from my sister in law. I'm hoping she really falls in love with it. I'm sure I could fill her days with projects for me. (c:
