O is for...
Oh, what a day! We had a lot going on today. This morning was my doctor's appointment; he took more blood and sent it away for more tests, but he seemed a lot more compassionate and more concerned about finding what's been causing my pain and fatigue than the last doctor was.
After lunch, we had a funeral to attend. One of our sweet church members, Miss Vera, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday. She was 87. She lived an amazing life and will be greatly missed.
Late afternoon and early evening were dedicated to grocery shopping, yuck! I like to eat but can't stand doing the shopping.
After all that, I was in a great deal of pain and needed a hot bath, so Tim and Hope put the groceries away and made dinner. I squeezed in a little stitching around 10:00 so I could do my post now (it's almost midnight). I'll have no trouble sleeping tonight!

And O is for...
Start #29, started January 29, 2015
Progress as of April 18, 2015:
The fabric is really more of a forest green, not light green as it appears in the photo. And those are black stitches. Funny what a digital camera does to color sometimes.

And O is for...
He is our only male cat, and he'll be 3 in September. Oreo was born in a barn that belonged to Hope's horseback riding instructor in Florida. Because we handled him so much from birth, he was the only kitten that would let anyone touch him; all the rest of his siblings stayed wild. In the beginning, his name was Zorro on account of his mustache and cape (the black markings on his back), but it was changed to Oreo to match our other animals (they're all named after food except the bird).

Thanks for reading and looking.
Blessings :-)

  1. Aw Kate I feel for you so sorry that you still unwell, I hope you managed to get a good nights sleep and woke feeling better. Oreo is so cute. :) xx

  2. I hope you'll feel better soon. Nice choice and start on the Orca. I'm with you on the chores, I'll be doing some laundry today so it cuts my stitching time (ugh!). Well, what choice do I have, as they say...Laundry today or naked tomorrow.

  3. Nice progress on Orca Kate. Oreo is a cutie. If you don't start getting better I'm gonna have to come and take care of you.


  4. Hope you turn the corner soon and great start!

  5. I hope the doctor can figure out what's wrong and you can get to feeling better real soon. :)

  6. Your cats are so cute:) Hope you've had a painfree day:)

  7. Ooh, Oreo is such a dear! I love his little mustache. Hope the test results bring good news for you soon, or at least a plan for relief.

  8. I'm glad your doctor was a little more receptive this time and I hope he can help you. Great stitching!
