I'd love to tell you I have been spending these hot summer days swinging in the hammock with all the newest magazines and a glass of ice cold lemonade, or floating in the pool daily with a daiquiri in hand, or even sitting in the garden enjoying the blooms with needle in one hand and a cup of tea in the other however......I have not. It seems last week I experienced my first bout of Vertigo. Upon more research I discover it is common for "aging" women to experience this at some point. Wonderful! Thanks to my friend Dawn, I was informed more on the subject as she had experienced it before and eased my mind a bit. Naturally my doctor was out of town and I couldn't get in to see the nurse practitioner until today which is really senseless now since I woke up yesterday with no twirling room. It was gone! I was going to keep the appointment but decide I will wait until my doctor returns next week and just see her so she can document it. After all, no symptoms, nothing to check (I assume.) All I can say is Vertigo may be painless, but it sure freaks you out and you can't function. I was determined to carry on as usual, the stubborn side of me, so I went out to water the front flower garden and when I would walk I began walking to one side as if I had been drinking. I had to force myself to walk in a straight line and then it was very slow small steps. Miserable. I'm glad that is over and I hope it doesn't return any time soon. Driving a car wasn't bad but I would recommend staying home.
After I took mom home I went to Jilly's. She invited me to go to Joann Fabrics with her. I like going to different ones because they all offer different items. I found several Brocade fabrics 50% off Yeah!!!! Now if I can pick up that needle and use them. I am in a lull, my muse is nowhere to be found. I try gather fabrics and many ideas swim around in my head but I can't bring myself to delve into a project, even a teensy one. It is going on four months and although I am inspired daily by seeing my students progress, I'm not "feeling" it. Sigh...........................
