Yin and Yang

I had to go into the city this morning for a Doctor's appointment, and while I have to do something I am not fond of doing I always try to add something fun to do the same balances me out. To my luck there was an antique estate sale starting today just 6 miles out of the for me, a little treasure hunting after my appointment. The sale did look promising online but when I got there it was not as great as I had hoped . I did walk away with a few items, as you can see they need some cleaning up and polishing, but good finds.

The Doctor's appointment on the other hand.... as I expected, I need to have surgery and have my thyroid removed. A recent biopsy revealed some large tumors but so far not a malignancy. I was hoping to have surgery the sooner the better but I must wait about 4 weeks. A nasty scar and medication for the rest of my life, but I quess it could be worse so I will not complain.


  1. Oh my goodness!! I hope everything with the surgery goes alright. I will be keeping you in my thoughts :D
    And I like your way of thinking!! Balancing something unpleasant with something that you like to do...I may have to try that the next time I go for an appointment or IV.

  2. Oh, Judy, I am so sorry to hear this! Was it expected? I'm pulling for you...

    Great scores at the the meerschaum pipe..well everything you got!

  3. Judy, sorry to hear you need surgery - but glad to hear not malignant!!!
    Love your estate sale treasures!!

  4. Nice finds Judy!! So sorry to hear about the surgery, but I love your wonderful attitude that it could always be worse! I will keep you in my prayers. And remember, all those beautiful necklaces you create you can wear to draw attention to instead of that scar.
