"I Am Certainly Healthy for my Age"

Ok, I can do a little dance. The dermatologist, who is a gorgeous long legged blonde, took one look at my cheek, grabbed her can of freeze, and froze me! I am now the owner of a dime sized spot that itches like you know what and weeps white tears when I cover it with Neosporin.

"I want to see you in a year, unless you have any further problems." So much for fighting windmills, lol. And another quote from the gorgeous blonde, "You are certainly healthy for your age"....hmmm, no sympathy there, lol.

So I can merrily go my way having Mad Hatter days or fight the windmills anyway or whatever the heck I want to. Thank you for your sympathy posts and asking about my health. Evidently we all worried in vain. Everyone breathe a sigh of relief.

I am working feverishly on my challenge quilt and, somehow or another, I can't make it look like the picture I had posted before. I still hope to have it finished by the deadline.

I picked up my Bernina today. That was a quick two weeks, thank goodness. I had the technician put an automatic threader on that, which will certainly save me some frustration.

I picked up a quilt from my quilter last week and am working on the binding. My daughter came by at lunch and was talking about Katy (4) needing a quilt for her bed. Did I have her on my radar for a quilt? Hah...sometimes I think she knows when I have one ready. She took one look at the one I am binding, and said, oh this one will be wonderful, just the right color. Lol. I will take a picture of it before it goes. And it is a big one, 90" square.

I hope everyone is having a great week so far. I think all I have done this week is run errands. Everyone stay warm!

Isn't "for your age" just about the worst thing to slap on the end of a sentence? I had a dermatologist say that to me - you have great skin....pause.....for a woman your age. What? Mezosoic?

Glad your Bernina is healthy and all. For its age. :)

I am so glad that it wasn't anything to serious. My Dad has had several of those type of things frozen on his face too.

See, I told you not to worry. I'm so happy for you Perry. Now you can go on and get busy quilting. Cause you know at YOUR age........ LOL!!! Well at least she said you are healthy. LOL
Speaking of healthy have you checked on your boy today???

Good, good news Perry...I'm so happy! I'm doing the dance and jumping again, but this time it's for you LOL!

Glad your healthy for any age. I went to one of those beautiful long-legged dermatologists about a year ago. I had a suspicious thing on my side I wanted to have diagnose. I was sure I had skin cancer. "Oh," she said, "that's just a (real long word that I don't remember)." I guess I looked confused, because she added, "We called them 'barnacles of old age."
"I'd rather have skin cancer," said I.

I'm glad the dr. said your were HEALTHY, at least! We'll just ignore the "at your age" part. I hear that, too, so I understand. I'm also glad that everything is a-okay!!! Hooray!!
Can't wait to see the quilt you are binding! I'm also looking forward to the challenge quilt - I'm sure it's lovely!

I am so excited in anticipation of Katy's quilt! I had to bite my tongue several times yesterday to keep from mentioning it to her. You will recall that we want to hear an un-coached and genuine response from our little genius when she gets her very own "Grammy Quilt"! Love ya!

You are giving a 4 yr old a 90" quilt? You could quarter it! I bet she will be thrilled! Hope your face heals up quickly.
