The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received, and share news about what is coming up on the blog for the week ahead. To get in on the Sunday funday, see the rules here: Sunday Post Meme. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lots of things happened last week…or maybe it’s just because so much is going on.
First things first because I hate ending on these notes. Four times each year I cannot ignore a particular health issue, and since this is the YEAR OF ALL THE HEALTH ISSUES (or perhaps it’s the Decade…), I couldn’t allow this particular issue to be ignored/glossed over by my doctors anymore. I pushed for more analysis into the issue and…I was diagnosed with Stage 0 cervical cancer last week.
I am staying positive, and I am trying to act like everything is normal. I am reminding myself that if I have to be diagnosed, this is the best stage to be at. I don’t know what any of the future looks like at this point in terms of procedures and whatnot, but my life and life activities will remain normal from now until I find out otherwise.
On Sunday I went with my work wife’s husband (I have work wives, not husbands!) to the Celtic Music Festival at Sherwood. It was fun, but surprisingly hot given the cool front that came through Texas, so I had to buy clothing to change into. I also got this fantastic piece of jewelry imported from Edinburgh. There is a Scottish family, Hamilton & Young, who own and operate a jewelry company which specializes in traditional Celtic, Mackintosh, Luckenbooth and Scottish Thistle designs.
Here’s the necklace I got from Hamilton & Young at the festival. This is the larger version; mine is smaller and more delicate. AND I FOUND OUT IT WAS OUTLAND INSPIRED. 🙂 Hamilton & Young also have other Outlander inspired jewelry.
Last week I was also nominated for The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers award by Nya @ Nya Reads. Thanks Nya!
