Back in Wisconsin…

Our return drive was uneventful. Sunny warm days excellent for car travel. Our new Prius has a few new bells and whistles which were also fun. Gas mileage was great and new safety features awesome. We got home on Sunday late afternoon. Whiskers was happy to see us. However our condo was very humid. We are on a concrete slab and it has been wet of late. We noticed lots of condensation on our floors and underneath furniture. We also have water in our ducts. We will be in contact with the builder as the condo owner said a trench was dug around the condo when our joint neighbor also had the problems a few years ago. We moved in late summer. So we went from little humidity to 78%, my curly hair has returned. To day able to open the windows and got the humidity down to the low 60’s. Everything is just damp. Our concern it mold! Otherwise good to be back, everything is green and trees flowering. 

My back continues to be uncomfortable. I made an appointment to see an orthopedic MD. While he took X-rays, said I have some arthritis but a bit hard to tell if I have a herniated disc. So left appointment with no answer, pain and to schedule MRI. The office was to do this but I ended up scheduling it and having them call for the order. I am a nurse and I know how things work or do not work. So the MRI is tomorrow, 24 hours to read it, then follow up but of course his office hours are not until next Monday. So another week goes by. I guess if I need an injection that could also be another week. Good grief! I am able to get around the house, but worrying about my strength in my left leg, I may need PT as well. We decided to cancel our trip to TN in a few weeks thinking this might not be done in time. We will plan to go early fall. Standing is difficult so husband has become a temporary cook. I have a graduation the following weekend, so would love to have the injection prior…but we will see.

I was able to unpack my sewing stuff. I had done a lot of cutting for one charity quilt prior to leaving. I was able to work on it a bit today sewing half and quarter size triangles. Quick picture of some of the blocks and material. I have all the blocks finished so I can begin to put it together. I designed it from patternjam. I hear they are going out of business. They are going to try to keep the designing web site up and running for now. This is such a cool site! My plan is to sew several charity quilts with some of the material I brought back.

I washed my daughter’s graduation quilt….Allietarecherith. I had only one fabric that ran, out of so many reds…was pleased. So rewashed with 2 new color catchers and no bleeding noted. I hand sewed a spider and small cat on the quilt. I will keep that to myself. I am going to enter it in our country fair. 

I have several new followers….welcome! I will have to check out your blogs in near future. Thanks for reading!

Happy Quilting to all!

  1. So glad you made it home safely, but that dampness does not sound good! Would a dehumidifier help any? Mold would worry me, too. I keep an eagle eye out for it here in E TN, and it’s a real pain after living in the desert most of my life. I’m so sorry you are still in pain and I hope they figure out what it is and not just what it isn’t!

    • We talked to furnace guy and he said it is due to poor drainage Tiles around condo. Condo owner is going to have our ducts cleaned, but waiting for builder to call back. Yep we are always looking our for mold. Hopefully will get answers next week and treatment for pain. Sure limits what you can do! Take care!
