What a Day!

Sorry I've been scarce around Blogland this week -- had to get my biopsy today and just didn't want to mention anything until it was done. I'm ok, but the experience was less than the best -- my surgeon changed hospitals, and while I know lots of people in lots of hospitals here in Big City (including the one I was at today) -- I felt like I was back in the 70's -- not very new, a little too exposed and way too disorganized. I got to the O.R. nearly two hours late because of disorganization in Radiology -- meanwhile, I was getting dehydrated, had a splitting headache...oh well, Thank God it's over and now I just need to hope for a good result with the biopsy. The incision is small and no pain, just a little swollen.

And, as a Kennedy fan and historian (undergrad degree is in American History) I'm very sad about the news of Ted Kennedy -- for those of us in our 50's -- this is the end of an era -- the end of the Kennedy generation. I know that Teddy is with his family now, especially his brothers...I remember so well his pain at the death of Bobby-- those years were so memorable and such a part of our culture - flaws and all.
Ok, on to more pleasant topics! I have a few textures to share -- not too many, but some nice ones, I think. And some tweaks. Now that the boob stuff is over, and HOPEFULLY it will cool off soon, I can get to work on all my projects. I have to wait a few days until everything heals up, of course, but I'll be a tweaking maniac over Labor Day.

So, this will be a short post, but here are some textures for your viewing pleasure!! I'll be back soon-- maybe with some early Fall goodies! And yes, ain't it great that Monday is the first day of SEPTEMBER??? We made it!! (although, my dear blogbuds, it is still 90 degrees here for week 2? week 3? losing count???)

Have a great rest of the week!


  1. Terry keeping you in my prayers, you seem to be a fighter! hugs

  2. I'm sure everything is going to be just fine, I'll be thinking of you, I go for my mamogram Friday!

    Gee, we are in the 70's here we had a couple days of 90 weather and I enjoyed it...crazy weather this summer!

    I'm glad you mentioned Ted Kennedy, I noticed no one else did...yes, and end of an era, so sad. Jackie Kennedy was my idol in the 60's that woman had style.

  3. Hi Terry,
