Sunday Ramblings


So, I have been a bit down in the dumps since my visit with my GP. It seems she is leaving in October so I will be switched to another doctor in the practice. I can't blame her as her husband and son live in another province and her husband can not sell his business. I will really miss her as she is the best doctor I have had here in this city. Not sure about the doctor that is taking over her patients as he is Harvey's doctor and does not seem at all thorough. At this point though I can not be without a doctor, so we shall see what happens.

It has been cold and raining here the last couple of days. Nice that I do not have to water plants, but it has put my harvesting and processing on hold. Hopefully I can get caught up next week.

I have managed to work on a few things this week.

I tried a new pie recipe.

Raspberry Citrus Pie, it was chilling in the fridge when I took this picture. Very tasty.

I used buttons this time around to quilt this, and managed to get the binding up to the point that I need to hand sew it. I should be able to finish it off tomorrow. Then move on to working on the cross stitch, providing the sun is shining.

I went for a walk this afternoon between showers and happened to find this when I looked down.

A twenty dollar bill!!! This will go in my savings envelope. 

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.


  1. HI Jackie - I just wanted you to know, I have closed down my blog due to mean spirited commenters. I will miss you and your blog posts. MY other blog will remain until I can switch it to another platform. You take care.

  2. That pie looks good! I love your quilt too. That was a lucky find on your walk. Take care Jackie!

  3. that pie...ooh that looks so good. You've had rain, and I heat and humidity. While good for the garden, the hose water isn't the same as the rain. At least you got a walk in, and look what you found....nice.

  4. How neat to find a $20 bill! That is so cool. I’m sorry you are losing your dr. I know that can be rough, I hope your new dr lives up to your expectations.

  5. It is so hard to find a good GP. I've been with mine for more than 10 years and he sounds much like Harvey's doc. He spends as little time as possible and makes decisions very quickly.

    The quilt is lovely, and lucky you finding the $20.

  6. Great find on your walk and progress on that quilt.
