I have a pretty difficult week ahead of me, so not really looking forward to it at all. Heading to our Uncle Mike's funeral in about 2 hours, it's going to be a tough day and I'm looking forward to being home later.
On Thursday I have to go in for a Spot Compression exam and an Ultrasound for my right breast. I'm still really scared but I'm trying very hard to stay calm. So if you could send some prayers my way, I would greatly appreciate them.
Well let's get going shall we?
Beautiful spring days the past week. We've been in the upper 80's and 90's, today we are reaching a high of 94 and then 80's the rest of the week. I'm happy for that, been looking forward to Spring for a while.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Still working on the Mandala Madness.
I haven't yet done Part 5 of the Scheepjes CAL from last week, it was just a whole lot of boring single crochet rows in preparation for the big middle embroidery, but I haven't gotten around to it, a lot happened last week and my head just hasn't been in the game.
Looking around the house:::
Not much to clean, just have to tidy up a few bits and bobs here and there.
From the camera:::
I didn't pick up the camera the whole of last week. I'm sorry guys, since I got that phone call I've been feeling pretty sorry for myself and just didn't have the energy or motivation for anything else. I will do better this week.
What I'm wearing today:::
Still in my pajamas at the moment. Need to get dressed for the funeral in about an hour, I'll be wearing a plain black dress, black shoes and then diamond earrings and a diamond cross necklace. Keeping it very simple but comfy because it's going to be a very long day and we have a 2 hour drive to get there too.
One of my simple pleasures:::
Not worrying. Really!!! When I am actually calm and relaxed and not worried about something, it is one of the nicest feelings on earth.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.- Corrie Ten Boom
Gracious, Heavenly Father, You already know the worries on my heart. I pray that You will give me the peace that passes all understanding in the trials that are ahead. I am scared about this week. I give these worries to You Father and ask that You will carry me through this difficult time. You already know that I had my mammogram, and that I have to return on Thursday, you also already know the results. I pray Father that the results will give me a clean bill of health. But if they don’t, I pray Lord that you would free me of this disease and heal me completely. I will obey You Father no matter what.
I thank You and praise You for Your patience with me. I love you Father! Amen.
