Take whatever you can get

A compliment is a compliment.  Somedays you just have to take what you can get! 

Today I had another test at the hospital. About 10 years ago I had a hemi-thyroidectomy and I am supposed to have it checked frequently.  I was well overdue for an ultrasound so today was the day.  I was a little nervous.

However, I had to laugh out loud when the technician announced that I had the "prettiest half thyroid she'd seen in a long time"!   Look Ladies - a compliment is a compliment, Right! 

A few more tests upcoming in the next few weeks and them hopefully that's it for another year.

Today I managed to get back to work.  I guess I was a little premature in saying Saturday night that I was feeling better, because Sunday and Monday I sick as a dog again.  However I woke up this morning and got the day in.   You know I was really sick because I didn't even hook all weekend.  Just layed around and moaned!

I need to have a small Dancing with the Stars rant.    Last night Taylor Swift performed.  Now I don't mind listening to her, but she always stands like she just got off a horse!!!
OK,  maybe she wouldn't need to write so many break-up songs if she learned to close her legs.........I'm just saying!   LOL And Rod Stewart performed as well - Yeah, he's still got it!!

My final thoughts.........Brandi has GOT to GO.  She is no actress - her fake looking making herself cry shtick is getting soooooo old.    Blahhhhhh

Tonight I'm back to the Angel rug.  I'm kind of regretting starting a larger project.  I really enjoyed the smaller ones but I'll get this one done and them try a few more little guys.   I'm anxiously awaiting the Townsend cutter replacements as I want to try some larger cuts.


  1. Oh Kim, you may have been very sick but you haven't lost your touch. I had to laugh out loud when I read about Taylor Swift stands like she just got off a horse. Maybe she learned that from Celine Dion.

    I'm so glad that you still have interior beauty that can be seen with an ultra sound. I had one side of my thyroid removes years ago too but since I'm still functioning fairly well, I was never check to see how pretty the other side is and I'll probably never know.

    After getting a nice complement like that I would want a Townsend cutter too. Glad that you are back at your Angel rug and that you could return to work. JB

  2. So glad your feeling better. I agree with the taylor swift comment. Maybe she has to stand like that so her legs don't snap.
    a compliment is a compliment. take them when ever and where ever you can.
    thanks for the visit

  3. Auntie says no wonder she can sing because she has "canary legs". Hahaha

  4. Hi Kim,
    So glad you're back at it and feeling better! No hooking? You really must have been sick! Take it a little easy now and don't overdo. I caught a little of DWTS and happened to be when TS was singing. I find her legs to be distracting..... imagine her as one of the dancers?!! A tangle of spaghetti is all I can think of!

  5. Kim ~
    So glad you are feeling better and back to hooking.
    Hugs :)

  6. I am glad you are finally feeling better. Yes, I have noticed that about Taylor Swift and I always wondered why she stood that way, and now that you said about getting off a horse that fits.
    I think I would take a compliment like that too. I had to have my heart looked at a couple years ago and It was this little tiny thing about the size of a fist and I thought something was wrong with me and then the doctor asked me if I was a runner. Oh how that made me happy. She told me I had a pretty heart and that was the way it was supposed to look. I was so sick so that was a bit of news that helped me get well I think. So I would take it too.
    I hope every day you will be getting better.

  7. OMG!!! Zip and I are falling off our chairs laughing over the TS comments! Especially the part about the break-up songs. LOL!!!

    Great that your thyroid is looking so good! Nothing better than a beautiful checkup.

  8. OMG...your thoughts about Taylor made me laugh almost as much as your header picture with Millie in her halloween costume!

  9. You're crackin' me up with the Taylor swift comments! I guess maybe she lives in a barn? lol! ;-) So glad your feeling better! Enjoy some fresh air today!

  10. Kim, yep about Taylor Swift and I said to CH, "what is it with those little dresses?". I am just tired of her in those. I mean I know she can wear whatever she dang well pleases, none of my business but isn't she cold? Couldn't she just wear some boots and jeans maybe?

    Can't believe you had a relapse. Happy to hear you are doing better!

  11. Glad you are feeling better. Hooking is so good for the soul - it's bound to make things better!

  12. Love the compliment you got! What a nice thing to say to someone!!! LOL!

  13. LMAO!She does stand that way! I would like to smack a little sweetness out of her! LOL

  14. Oh how funny you are! you must be feeling better.
    I so think you are right about how she stands..i can not figure that one out either but your version is the best.
    Love how your blog looks. The sides are too neat..I find myself wanting a new look sometimes but I know me it will probably not happen.
    Feel better so you can show us some more of your pretty rugs.
    Did you say you know how to do that rice with rasins that I want the recipe for?

  15. Kim,
    I hope you feel better soon. And just toooo funny about Taylor S. I really think there must be something wrong with someone who write that many breakup songs! She needs to get a life ... grow up ... and wait on the man thing ... cause it just doesn't seem to be working for her now!
    BTW, I LOVE your header photo! Toooooo Cute!
