This week, I have been in a period of the doldrums. Doldrums defined by the dictionary says ...low spirits, dull, listless feeling, sluggishness. I cannot decide if this is because I am still recovering from my surgery of three weeks ago; or if having half my thryoid removed is the issue. Either way, I haven't accomplished much this week. I have a list of things to do, but only accomplish half or less. At work, I cannot seem to concentrate on anything for a great length of time without becoming tired. Several individuals have commented on how I appear, and most think that I must be ill. My voice has a hoarse, husky sound since the surgery. Many, that did not know about the surgery, assume that I have a cold. As you may see, I haven't blogged much in the last couple of weeks, either.
I have been stitching an embroidery piece that I picked up last Fall at a flea market. It has a Disney design with Bambi and Thumper and places to record birth information. I need to complete this by the beginning of March, when my daughter is due with her second child. I also expect to get the baby quilt back from my longarm quilter tonight, and it will need binding put on by March, as well. The one thing that I have accomplished, since the week-end, is to put together the instructions for the Applique Club heart blocks for the guild meeting that will take place next Tuesday.
After work, I plan to meet my older daughter at Babies R Us. She is also expecting, in May. And, my Kiltie Quilters will meet at the local library to socialize. That's about all that I am able to think about accomplishing. Maybe I'll feel up to more by the week-end. I sure hope so.
