Grandma Barb’s This and That

Saturday, March 29, 2014


It's Random 5 Friday over at Nancy's A Rural Journal.  Well as usual I am a day late and a dollar short. Here are my random 5.

One:  Remember the sights of Spring I posted about 2 weeks ago.  Well they are all covered with that white four letter word again.

Two:  The only signs of Spring now are the flowers I bought for myself.

Three:  It was 3 weeks ago that I came down with this virus, cold, crud, whatever it is.  I still have it but it is much better since I got some antibiotics from my doctor.  It really zapped my energy and I have not felt like doing a darn thing for those 3 weeks.

Four:  I told you I would let you know about the results of my medical tests.  Well they are inconclusive.  I have spots on my lungs that we thought was my thyroid cancer spreading to them.  But the tests didn't show that it was thyroid cancer so now we don't know what it is.  Is it an infection or another type of cancer?  My doctor is sending me to an oncologist at Mayo Clinic.  I have an appointment set up for the middle of April.

Five:  I read Nora Robert's book "The Next Always" while laying on the couch these last weeks.  It is book one in the "Inn Boonsboro Triolgy".  It was nothing too exciting but I am going to read book two, "The Last Boyfriend".  I just picked it up from the library so you know what I'll be doing this weekend.  These old eyes are loving the large print books.

Head on over to A Rural Journal to see what other random things are happening in Blogland.

Thanks for all you thoughts, prayers, and kind comments on my last post.  Thanks to my new followers too.

See you again soon!

Look what I see

Some randomness for Friday over at Nancy's A Rural Journal


Could spring be working it's way in.  I see puddles in the driveway.


Temps in the 50's


Green grass peeking through the snow.


A little Spring decorating


This has nothing to do with spring.  It's the fact that I have been sick for the last week and haven't gotten around to posting.  I'm feeling better everyday but still not over this awful cold or virus that I have.  I think everyone around here has had it and it finally got me down.  I will be having some medical tests done next week that have nothing to do with my cold.  I'm asking for your thoughts and prayers as I am not certain what the outcome is going to be.  I will let you know when I find out though.

Thanks for stopping.  Please stop over at Nancy's Blog to see lots more randomness.

Until Next Time
