it seems strange not to have a house project to do
this week we focused on some other things -- like wrapping all of the Christmas presents and stashing them somewhere that people walking through the house can't see them!
he had gotten all of the wood work done, and then the project stalled because the house took over
this week we worked on the next step -- originally (as in over 100 years ago!) these chairs had a caned seat, but over the years they had had several renovations, so the fact that there was cane at the bottom of all that was a surprise to us!
because of those changes, we decided not to try to re-cane them, but to recover the seat with a plain black leather pad
but first some prep work must be done -- this week we've put the support strapping on all six of them
next step is some padding -- maybe this week!
this piece had come to a complete stop, but this week I've gotten back to work on this, and the fringing is coming right along
for the past six months or so I have just felt "off" -- first with one thing, then another, but overwhelming feeling like I just had no energy
early this week I had an appointment with my doctor where we talked about all of the issues at length
she did blood work, an EKG, referred me for a stress test and a sleep study (those latter two will be done in the next few weeks)
the blood work, however, resulted in a diagnosis of type II diabetes and a prescription for a medication to help with that issue
so begins a whole new challenge -- never a dull moment!!
