Welcome to our "Thursday Things I like!" It's been a busy week again. I have a initial diagnosis of Fibromyalgia with a specialist appointment yesterday for a second opinion. He ran another big round of blood labs to rule out other causes. Gag. Not a good initial diagnosis as there is no real proof test for Fibromyalgia, not very good options on the meds and exercise is the best therapy. Of course, exercise with pain is not fun. I'm keeping Advil in business. But, I'll continue to do what's necessary to keep moving and we'll see what the specialist says in another MONTH.
Regardless, here are just a few of my "likes" this week:
1. Tea with my daughter. I like doing anything with my daughter. She is a witty, fun person. We took an hour to go wander downtown Glendale Az last Saturday as they were having a fall festival but we really wanted to sit and have tea with a sweet. haha. So, we found a tea shop named The Spicery which has been there for many years. We did not need a reservation! We sat for over an hour and had tea with a light cheesecake. Both were perfect. In the interest of "keeping it real" I took this photo of our table:
2. The New Yorker magazine cover for October:
3. My new quilt book. Vanessa Goertzen's Charm School -18 Quilts from 5" Squares. The day before my vacation, I went to Barnes and Noble with coupons that were about to expire on the goal of purchasing a specific quilt book to take with me to the cabin. But, when I reviewed the one I wanted at the store, I realized I had already seen many of the patterns by that author online. So, I took a glance at the other quilt books available (maybe 5) and found this one:
I also finished a birthday gift quilt this week but I will have to wait till next week to share it with everyone The birthday is Nov 1. I can't wait for ya'll to see it. It is so cool. This quilt is another where I don't want to part with but I know it will make someone happy.
