Sue Henry is my friend

I saw my friend, Sue Henry on Saturday at a woman's event at my church.  I make a point to get together with her at least twice a year at our Scrap & Sew weekends.  She is a hoot.  She makes me laugh.  And then she said "I used to read your blog when you had it."  Wait...Don't I still have it?  When's the last time I posted a post on it?  Why don't I post posts on it very much??  I told her I would post a picture of her on here...I'd better find a good one.  This wil work.  She's on the left in the middle row...right behind me.  I do my best to get her into trouble whenever we get together.


So...now I'm getting ready for another Scrap and Sew...  less than 2 weeks away. There will be 11 of us for the weekend. I have plenty of stuff I could work on.  I usually take twice as much stuff as I could ever possible do...and Sue will do more than me... so had focus!!

I signed up for another round of pottery with the experienced group from last fall.  More Mugs for the world!  I made 7 last week and this week I get to remember how to make their handles. I'm not very good, but I'm happy that I'm able.

I was diagnosed with Lupus 3 years ago, in the midst of a flare and it's still a mystery to me.  I read and I google, and I read and it's still a mystery.  But I have had inflammation in my hands since last January and unable to wear rings.  I went to my dr and rode it out through the craziness of our spring/summer.  Then my friend Kathy - that's her standing behind Sue- suggested I try a chiropractor.  I have tingling fingers and suspect carpal tunnel could be part of the problem.  But I'm going to the chiropractor on a regular basis and it's helping.  Feeling good enough to get some stuff done.
Like this paint job to cover up some plaster repairs from a leak.  Needed doin' and I decided there would never be a time unless I MADE a time...so I did this Friday and since the last paint had just been 3 years and I was feeling not quite ambitious enough to do the whole office...so I just went a bit further than the new  patch and we are happy enough with the results to call it good...



Guess I'd better go to class.  Handles...I can do handles...See you soon, Sue Henry!

I've had lupus since 1989. Not much fun, but it can be managed if you are careful.

Aren't friends great?
