Unusual Day Start

So, instead of sleeping in on this, my not-at-Sisters day, I was up at 6 and off to the hospital for just after 8 so my doctor could do a skin biopsy/mole removal. It wasn't complicated nor did it take very long, but I now have a medium sized bandaid on the left side of my neck that looks a little odd. And surprisingly, it hasn't hurt even after the local anesthetic wore off. I should get the results in 10 days to 2 weeks. My doctor is positive it's not cancerous, but since I've had cancer before, we never take that for granted. When my breast cancer was discovered, all the medical professionals had assured me it couldn't be a malignant tumour because it had none of the "markers". Now I assume nothing until verified!

Hopefully it will be a stitchy afternoon. I'm hoping to work on my oldest UFO for a bit before I go back to Ireland. I'm still working on the first colour to make the 'frame' of the country and it's a lot of counting and finger crossing and hoping that the stitches will meet where they're supposed to. A lot of rain coming down, so it's a good day for snuggling up with needle in hand and cats at feet!

And I almost forgot. Living in the ground floor suite of a house, I don't have a garden, but every May for my birthday my friend Cynthia puts 5 pots on my front steps, full of floral surprises. This year was no different, and all summer I've had pansies and other flowers, but look what is just blooming now.

Aren't they gorgeous? I particularly like the purple lilies and glads, but the tricolour orange glads are real eye catchers. I am so pleased.

That sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon after a stressful morning. Enjoy the stitching.

Good luck with your results, I am sure that it will be "All Clear". Enjoy your stitching and think of me as I head off to a day of work - no stitching until tonight for me! I love your flowers, such a sweet idea of your friend.
