Tuesday was chemo #3. It was, as usual, very uneventful. But God made sure that I realized just how blessed I am. There was a woman in the chair to my left who was going to have to be there most all the day. And there was a frail older woman two cubicles down who looked to be 95. She must have just been diagnosed today as I could hear them explaining everything in great detail to her and her son. Please pray for all of us who are fighting this horrible beast.
We finished up with chemo a little after 12:00, so of course DH and I "had" to stop somewhere for lunch ... we drove to the Hill for lunch. Yum! I couldn't eat all my tortellini, so I had leftovers for dinner. Double yum!
Wednesday morning was spent in the sewing room where I finished my tumbler flimsie. It's almost ready for quilting ... I need to square up the sides and choose the backing. The quilt will finish approximately 36"x36" so a yard of fabric should be enough. I need to go through my stash to see if I have a yard of something suitable (I usually grab fat quarters if I'm supplementing my stash). I have enough leftover tumblers to make a smaller wall hanging or table topper, so I started piecing that together. I'm not sure just what I'll do with that ... right now I'm considering gifting it to an old friend. We'd grown apart but had made a little bit of peace last fall. But once I was diagnosed, she's been such a faithful friend ... I'd like to let her know how much her encouragement and support has meant to me.
DH and I went for a nice walk after lunch Wednesday. I continue to pick up a little speed and walk a little further. It was such a delightful day (even if it was very windy) for a nice walk so we did a walkabout in the yard, checking out our garden and our blooming plants.

I spent Wednesday evening with DD and my Ts. We went to Build-a-Bear to build Star Wars bears to celebrate ... May the 4th be with you! I wish I'd thought to take pictures of their bears. Our dinner that evening was Star Wars themed ... including a 7 Leia dip. DD is so creative.
I plan to spend my Thursday in the sewing room ... with another nice long walk this afternoon as it's supposed to be even nicer today (although it's still very windy). And of course I'll be watching Game 4 of the conference semi-finals tonight. Let's go Blues!
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
