Another day

Well I don't have Spring Planting done quite yet. Maybe tomorrow. I still have one bluebird, 3 butterflies, flower centers and the out lining left to do. I would have been done either yesterday or today but I feel like crap. I am coming down with a cold I think. I have this horrid cough which is bothering my arrhythmias (which is not good) and I ache all over. Hopefully this will be short lived.

Yesterday I bought the book A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. I have been listening to it on my MP3 player at the gym. It is a pretty decent book so far. I probably should read the book The Power of Now. Apparently that is kinda a prelude to this one. It really sums A New Earth up better. I am going to register on the net for A New Earth. It was one of Oparh's book club books. Martha suggested it to me.

Well I think it is time to register the book and then head to bed.

What does Kathryn mean?

I saw this on another friends blog so I thought I would check out what my name mean't. My real name is Kathryn so here is the meaning. It is very close to what I actually am like suprising.

What Kathryn Means

You are a seeker of knowledge, and you have learned many things in your life.
You are also a keeper of knowledge - meaning you don't spill secrets or spread gossip.
People sometimes think you're snobby or aloof, but you're just too deep in thought to pay attention to them.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life.
You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home.
You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble.

You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.
Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia.
Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.
You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.
You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

Well a post finally

Well it has been a while since I posted last. I have been busy working on my cross stitch and feeling sorry for myself.

This is a kit I got with one of my Christmas cards in an exchange that I participated in.

This is the Breast Cancer Biscornu that I was doing. It took me a while to do cause I kept making mistakes on it. I finally finished it and gave it to a friend of our who had Breast Cancer. She goes to the craft shows with us and shares our table.

This is the t-shirt I started last weekend. It is called Spring Planting by San Man Originals. That is half the pattern done in one week. My goal is to finish the rest this week.

I have not been to the gym since the end of February cause I have been having problems with my arrhythmias. NO where as bad as before Ablation #4 but still enough. I went to Toronto last week and both Dr. Harris and Dr. Downar are please that I am feeling better. They are happy that my episodes are few than before the Ablation and the rate is alot lower as well. Now when I am out of rhythm rather than a rate of 196 to 210bpm my rates are 130 to 150bpm which is way down. My medication got upped so now I take it 3 times a day which is requiring the pacer to pace more since my resting heart rate is below 50. Somewhere around 45. SO they want to decrease the top number in the pacer to 130 so that it will catch more of the arrhythmias and not have them carry on for 2, 3, or even 5 hours. My only concer is that when I am exercising how it that going to work out. I don't want to be competing with the pacer for heart rates just to be able to work out. I have to see how the next 9 weeks go and then we will make a decision from there. Hopefully there will be no major issues in that time.

Well I will head to bed now so that I can make the gym early.

Today has been one of those days. I was out of rhythm first thing this morning but couldn't do anything about it as I had things to do. With it being the begining of the month I had monthly errands to run. Had to take my brother to the hospital so he could have his knee scoped. Came home to no water which I knew about. Tried to lift as much of the snow and ice off the driveway as I could so that nobody would fall on it. That task really bothers my back as the shovel is too short to do that. got a fair amount done. Slept this afternoon then went bowling. I did really shitty at bowling. Couldn't do anything no matter what I tried. Came home to put the garbage out and fell on the ice. I hurt my hand. Not badly but it still smarts now and I fell almost 2 hours ago.

I am fed up so I am going to bed now.
