...You know what Robert Burns said about them. They 'gang aft agley'. Such has been my week. I had hoped to be posting by now that the weaving of this Fall tapestry was completed; that I'm now cleaning and baking and decorating the house; that the cutting off is scheduled and You Are Invited. BUT (ahhh, these dang big Buts!) those plans did gang agley.
I hit my head on the car getting out of it a few days before Thanksgiving. It wasn't a big hit, but it was in a sensitive place, and that plus a weather system that has been hanging over our valley, has triggered The Migraine That Won't Go Away. I've been to the doctor twice. I alternate weaving with lying in bed with either a pillow or a cold pack on my head. Yesterday I went back in and got 'better drugs.' Am I telling you this to generate your sympathy? You bet I am!
I have not given up my goal. I AM a stubborn beast. But it is hard to think with either a mind-confusing headache, or on narcotics. And it is hard to weave a tapestry without thinking. Here is what I am looking at today:
I have 4 inches left to weave. It is still cloudy, both outside and in my head. I don't know what this upper border will look like when it's done, but Done I must get it! (Did that sound like something Yoda would say? Gracious, from Robert Burns to Yoda. Now that's a leap one will only make on mind-numbing meds!)
