if it's not one thing, it's another around here of late.
since tuesday, i have been dealing with extreme head pain (not like migraine or headache) on the back, left side of my head which ended up radiating down through my neck and shoulders. my head felt like a ten ton weight that my neck was struggling to support. i nearly passed out twice and the pain was overwhelming to the point where i couldn't think straight. anti-inflammatory and panadol medication didn't help at all but, since being to a second doctor today, he put me on an asprin/codeine mix that i do believe has helped ease the pain a little. i have a CT scan of the brain scheduled for monday morning.
during the better periods, i've been trying to get a few things done where i can, such as working on a 'wedding tie' box for michelle and alex's wedding. they will be having a hand-fasting ceremony where several coloured ribbons will be bound around their joined hands and then tied together, removed, and formed into a special knot. the wedding knot will be stored in the box as a keepsake and reminder of their special vows. i am painting the box to match the colours and design of the wedding invitations and, on the top of the lid, i will be painting a celtic knot.
i finished the baby shawl i was crocheting and also made a pair of bootees to match. i can hardly believe it only took me a month to crochet the shawl. i'm now working on the little matching jacket. baby is due in the midst of our summer so won't have need for knitted garments until winter so i'm making them to fit the six months age group. too cute, huh?
the fallen trees are being turned into mulch now.....it breaks my heart.
i took the picture below from my ensuite window overlooking the neighbour's back fence
i have seen these two kookaburras, on and off, sitting on the small sapling branch near where the trees once stood behind our back fence. i'm sure they are the same two that made their home in the termite nest on one of the trees that fell. they are no doubt wondering what the heck happened to their home, poor things.
on this particular occasion, a rainbow lorikeet sat above them probably wondering the same thing.
so that's my news for this week....some good, some bad,
but i guess that's just the way life flows sometimes.
i hope your week has been better than mine
~ love, light and peace ~
