A day out on the Town with a Camera and some Jewelry

It's been a stressful week, and winter full of surgeries. Thankfully that's behind us now, but I had my own doctor appointment to be worried about.

A few weeks ago I had what felt like a 'pop' in the back of my head, followed by a feeling of release. It was a painful but not an unbearable experience. However, when I thought that was the last of it - it was not. For a week following, every day I would feel a sharp pain in the same spot for a few seconds, and a cooling sensation in the surrounding area.

A visit to the doctor who checked me out from top to bottom says whatever it was appears to have passed. (for a week prior to the visit I had felt no more pain). We believe it was a small clot, but perhaps not large enough to get completely stuck. Perhaps I should lay off the coffee so my blood veins in my brain don't shrink so small.

I did however discover I have week lungs, I'm at high risk of Bronchitis, I'm prone to kidney stones (Which explains the pains I get in my sides from time to time) and I really don't feel like passing another kidney stone again. Lastly - as I suspected, my entire digestive system is completely messed up. Several years ago I worked, but had not enough money to put food on my table.  Such is the way of life. I was 25lbs underweight, and my digestive system has not recovered since.

The doctor's visit was followed by a few tough days to get through, but Friday came and it happened to be a fairly warm day with lots of sun, and the first time in a long time I went out to enjoy myself. Many hours of walking, some posing beside a fabric shop led to some decent pictures of two new necklaces I have made in the past week that will soon find themselves in my Shop.

Amethyst Stone and Peacock Pearl Bling Necklace

I have many more to make like it before these end up in my Shop. I took my stroll down Toronto as a chance to pick up some supplies. I'd love to keep these for myself, they are sooo beautiful, and purple is a beautiful color on a woman!
