That pretty much sums it up.  Blah!  That's what I've been feeling like.  I haven't felt like myself since Mother's passing.  I figured it was the grieving process.  Part of it may have been until my glands on the right side of my neck started swelling and I knew it was something more.  After a week and they didn't go down I made an appointment.  Dr. M gave me an antibiotic.  The pain from the swelling is gone but the swelling is still there.  : (   I've put in a call to the dr.  We'll see what's next.

After I determined I wasn't contagious we made another trip to Ballinger to do some banking business for Mother's estate.  We got a lot done in a short amount of time.  It was a good thing we went when we did. The house insurance draft was not drawn for November.  We got it all worked out.  We talked with someone who does estate sales.  We will meet with them later in the month.  What to keep and what to let them sell?  Decisions.

We've had some cold temperatures and we have beautiful fall foliage on the trees.  The sumac is such a beautiful color.  This last weekend we had temps in the 80s and little visitors.  The two youngest grands came and spent one night with us.  So much energy!   I wish I had a small amount of their energy!

I have been in such a blah mood I have not sewn a stitch.  This may be the longest stretch I have lost my interest in quilting.  At this point--I'm wondering if it's going to come back.
