All the trees are turning Fall Colors. . .SOOOOO

AH HA!  THE LEAVES are not the only thing turning copper this Fall. I was feeling drab and bedraggled after my sojourn in the hinterlands of New Mexico; “No Country for Old Men/Women” indeed!  Have had 4 dialysis treatments and with all my trepidation, turned out not to be so bad.  Getting the temporary catheter was a night mare but after that; not too bad.  Takes 12 hours out of my week but it goes by fairly fast as I can use my laptop and if my fistula never works; I’ll have both hands free and can tat.

I don’t have any tatting to show, Need to unpack the books.  I DO know where shuttles and thread are, though.  :>)  We are sorting as we unpack and trying to put away things before we unpack more.  A lot of non essential will have to go, there is a lack of storage.  No walk in pantry, no walk in closets and no utility room cuts down on storage I took for granted.  LOL  Also, one less bedroom means one less closet.
But I do like my little home.  We’re going to the Scandinavian Design store to buy functional pieces for storage; a two drawer, two-drawer curio with a matching, but separate, console.  Later next year, we’ll get the matching table.  We bought only ‘must have’ furniture after the FLOOD of 97 so we are overdue for a few pieces to replace what we lost.  The only thing I have too many of are chairs..I think I have a chair ‘fetish’.  LOL  I’m giving two to the grandson’s apartment along with the chair and a half that we gave them.

Today I’m celebrating having a great hair stylist; At 76, my hair is the only thing I have going for me, so I’m celebrating the artist who does it!  Holly.  She is as much of a perfectionist as I and that is a good thing.  I love Sacramento, the trees are turning red, gold, copper along the wide boulevards here in Greenhaven area. The days have been sunny with intermittent leaf shadows.  We are supposed to have a sprinkle of rain by Sunday.  The Da Vita clinic (West Elk Grove) is populated by really nice nurses and technicians.  The manager is from the UK.

Wanted my readers to know that I’m doing a lot better, will be tatting again soon and will be in full swing with the blogging.  Thanks for hanging in there with me; when I find the scanner I’ll show you all the lovelies sent to me by Jane, Fox and Martha Ess.

It sounds like a lovely area where you are living now. New furniture is a treat, and I hope you get it arranged just like you want.
Your red hair looks great!

Love the hair! Knowing where the tatting supplies are is a good thing. Finding a good place to keep them available is even better -- I hope the new furniture has a place for a stash. :)

Bev,
I do not know how to email you as they keep getting sent back! I have sent off about three but I do no think you have received them over the past few months.

Send me an email. This tragic thing with Gina is really devastating...

Bev,
I have tried to send you about three emails over the past few months, but I am sure you haven't got them as I get a non-delivery message... Please send me an email so I can get in touch...

This sadness with Gina is so devastating...
