The Pink (Sneezing) Season

Monday, March 25th, 2013



It is that time of year here in Portland, so pretty and so pollen filled. I have been sneezing and itching my eyes. However, I think my anti-inflammation diet has helped with my sinus congestion. I saw my doctor today and she was very pleased with my latest blood test results. My cholesterol keeps dropping – 127 – and my triglycerides dropped 50 pts. My HC1 test is now within normal range so I am no longer pre-diabetic.  I hope to lose some more weight and get that number even lower.

We had a nice week-end with dinner out and an Oregon Symphony concert on Saturday. I have had a hard time getting the big quilt finished – the one I can’t show you yet. Today, after the Dr. appt., I went to Joannes and bought the 100% cotton batting that I need for it. I got it cut to the right size and had a good day of working on it. Tomorrow, I am determined to finish it and have it ready for quilting.

The sketches that I did are meh. I need to try the step stool again. The tissue box is a rerun. I think this one is better.
