View Full Version : A little pale sun shines down on Daisy World

Today was a landmark day in Daisy World. Mr D is exactly half way through his radiotherepy. In another week and a half this will be over (scan results allowing). He is tired, thin as a rake and bald as a coot and claims that radiotherepy has removed his memory of how to load the dishwasher and he suspects that memory will never return...... but, we are nearly at the end!!!!!!!!!!!

Other things occuring are, the Christmas Chicken is almost ready for beading and I have been asked to dress the whole Christmas Window it is being made for. I am really thrilled about this, I am being given totally free reign with the window, can use anything at all in the shop I want and in addition have a generous budget for any additional things I may need. I have almost completed all my Christmas cracker placemats which is a relief. Will use a couple in the window too. The colours will be purple, magenta and gold. It needs to be ready for November 24th when the towns Christmas Season begins with Santa passing through and a evening street market with lots of mulled wine and mince pies.

Hope everyone is well, recovering from the storms and the election. Thoughts and hugs to those who need or want them.

So very happy to hear from you Daisy. Happy to hear you are both faring as well as to be expected. Will be looking forward to seeing pics of the window after it is finished. Prayers still being said for the amazing Mr. D. Hopefully when this is all over, and his hair grows back and puts a little meat on his bones, he will also remember how to load, and unload the dishwasher. Hugs to you both.

Seamus assisted in the creation of the Christmas Chicken window hanging by skipping in the window soaking wet from rain and plonking his great tabby arse down on it as I was working on the floor. Veryyyyyyyyyyyy helpful (not). As a result I had to put it into a pillowcase and wash it before I could work further. Not even sandwiched! Thankfully it came out of the washing machine fine and dandy. He is still wearing his tshirts, has worked out how to taken them off which he does when he is cross with me. As when he got a flying lesson for 'helping' with the Christmas chicken lol

Been thinking of you both and praying for him, and know how you must feel seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. And the window sounds like so much fun to do! Beautiful color palette! Please share pictures when it is finished. Love to you both!

Read Don your post and we're both so excited that Stewart is doing so well and that his Humor Bone has not been effected. lol
Let's hope that short term memory loss come back after that last radiation treatment. :)

Wish I was a fly on the wall when Seamus went flying off the Xmas Chicken, Oh My Mama must have been PO'd. I know I would have been. Glad that XC made it through the wash ok. Can't wait to see it!

Now the Xmas window project sounds like a ton of fun, that too is something all of us would love to see for sure. The color choices are grand too!

I have a question, do you wear steel mesh gloves when you change out the T-shirts on Seamus? I know that with 3 out of 4 cats of ours, there would be blood shed. lol The blood would be ours, 'cause they would not be happy!

Huggers and prayers always for both of you, Ruby and Don

It is so wonderful to hear that the sun is shining in Daisy World - I love good news. As for selective memory issues . . . isn't he the guy who was handing out business cards for you - maybe he'll forget to do that ever again. Give him a great big hug from all of us.

Hmm...somehow I think if you handed Mr. D a sponge and some dish soap and steered him toward the sink he'd suddenly get his dishwasher loading memory back.

Not sure what it is about cats but they always want to be in the middle of things. It never failed if we were playing a board game on the floor our cat would waltz in and spread out right in the middle of it, usually knocking all the game pieces off.

no need to put on gloves to dress Seamus in his tshirts. He is such a gentle giant that he just sits and lets me do it and sings me a song to entertain me while I do it. I will be glad though when he doesn't need to wear it anymore, that will be when Mr D stops going out at such odd times and taking Seamus's Mam with him. Seamus has developed an anxiety about me, is used to me being around at certain times of the day and when I change my routine he gets worried and overgrooms. When I am here he barely leaves my side these days.

Yes, please post pictures of your projects. I would love to see them.

Love the "dishwasher shtick" . Hope Mr. Daisy is as well as his sense of humor, and you too. Gotta love a cat! The world is theirs for the taking. I miss my "Bratenella McNasty" who passed last spring after twenty and a half years of earning her name. Be well, God Bless

So happy for you about free reign on the window! Sounds like fun and yes, pictures please!
Now about the memory loss, I was going to say something like, well we will have to get rid of the dishwasher - Karen had the same idea and beat me to it!
Just Happy that you and Mr. D are happy, God Bless you both!!!

Well, at least Mr. Daisy has something to blame his memory loss on. I wonder what my husband's excuse is?

Glad to hear that he's hit the halfway mark. I wish there was such a thing as a "fat drive". Kind of like a blood drive, but for body fat. I have some I'd love to donate to folks who are struggling with illnesses that cause weight loss. Oh well. Until then, I'll just have to try to get rid of it on my own!

Take care!

How nice that he seranades you too. :) Coco is the one that would let Kat dress her in Cabbage Patch doll clothes, put her in shopping bag, baby carriages, etc. Coco would talk a lot too, also took baths since she was a baby. Half Siamese/Persian - She was beautiful and sweet. No gloves required. :D

The other 3...We'd be in the ER for sure!

It's good to hear that Mr. D is halfway through his treatments. I agree with Karen, I bet giving him a dishrag (as we country folks say) and some dish soap would help him remember how to load the dishwasher. Poor Seamus, it sounds like he may have been tossed around just a bit today. You all continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. (((HUGS)))

LMBO! So true, ALL of it!! The sponge and soap would hurl me back to the present and get to loading the dishes right away! & cats are so weird the way they are all like that. Right there in your face when you really would prefer to cuddle them elsewhere than right at that moment you are doing something that didnt need a furry friends help ;)

Daisy, its so good to hear about Mr.D! I hope your hanging in there too :)

Good to hear from you, Daisy...and you, too, Gina. Hope you recover from the shoulder problem soon and good luck with the new Beau. Mr. D will recover soon to get that dishwasher loaded!!! It is so wonderful you both have such a great sense of humor. It helps tremendously with what you are going through. Keep on sewing and smiling!

Ms. Daisy, I could just picture that flying lesson....thank goodness I didn't have any coffee in my mouth at the time or my laptop would have gotten a shower...and I take cream and sugar in my coffee! I got a chuckle out of the "flying lesson"! Hugs to both of you!
