Please be patient with me....

I am just not myself right now. My body is trying to adjust to this new chemo drug and has my butt draggin! I hope to be doing regular posts and visiting soon. I have done some, but if you haven't heard from me, it is because although it seems hard to believe, I just don't feel like typing.

I thought I would show you one of my birthday presents I got from my Princess party. This fantastic gift was from Candy and Amy, two of my dearest friends here in AZ. They bought me a stereoscope. I have wanted one for years, but I wanted one with all working parts.

The beginnings of the View Master!

This one has a beautifully clear patent from 1909. It is almost in perfect condition.

Karen , Some Days are Diamonds, when she came to visit me brought me this adorable card for it! Such a precious picture.

I have it sitting on top of my old trunk in the Living Room.

My dear, dear friend Misty called me this morning. She is my DIL that I didn't get....but I love as if I did. Her sweet mom went garage saleing and found me something else I have been looking for. I get it at church tomorrow. I am soooo excited. I will show you next week.

I hope you all had a great week and are having a relaxing and/or productive weekend. Thank you for all your prayers and encouragement. I miss so much visiting with all of you, but you know, my Blogroll is long and my body is blah!

I am hoping for a better week next week. Hope springs eternal, you know!!

Oh CeeKay sweetie...
I am sending up prayers for you as we speak. I will continue to hold you in prayer, that this new chemo will be the one that is going to heal your tired body sweetie.

I am going out to work in the garden, and as I am working I will be praying for you. You may feel the sunshine on your face and the warmth of the sun to relax you and make you whole again. I pray that you will have the strength to once again be reunited with your blogger AZ friends who so adore you.

Please rest easy my precious friend. My angel friends will be assisting you this afternoon. Much, much love sweetie and so many hugs to you, Sherry

Ceekay, I have and will continue to keep you in thought and prayer. I hope you feel better soon. Just rest and get your strength back. Love you. Hugs, Marty

Beth said...

You hang in there. I remember when my Granny was going through chemo how tired she was. You get your rest. Praying for you!

Julie Harward said...

Hi sweet lady...I know I am a fairly new friend but my heart is with you...and I pray for you to get feeling good and enjoy this Spring. I love your new/old gift..awesome. I am going in for surgery this coming week...a bit of scary stuff found, so a complete hysterectomy will do the trick, I hope. Take car..I'll catch up with you when I can :D

Terra said...

That stereoscope is such a perfect gift for you, since you have long wanted one. When I was a child, I enjoyed viewing with one at the public library. It was an antique already.
How lovely to have a princess birthday party. Take your time with posting and keep on healing.

Rebecca said...

My behind is a draggin' and I have nothing like your excuse...more like REASONS!

Thinking of you my friend. Happy Spring!

Love, Rebecca

Oh! It's lovely! I've always wanted one too. The picture is so cute.

Linda said...

Hi Ceekay...I'm so sorry your new chemo is making you so tired...I hope it passes soon and don't worry about us, we'll be here...just take care of yourself.
Your stereoscope is wonderful, these are so hard to find and what a sweet will be fun looking for more cards. Have a happy day tomorrow and I'm looking forward to seeing what your present is....hugs, Linda

Susan said...

Ceekay, I was just telling my husband the other day I would like to find a view master. Only we couldn't think of what you called it........LOL

Melissa Miller said...

Ceekay I'm so sorry you are feeling badly. I hope you are feeling well very soon.

Take care & rest. ~Melissa :)

Grammy Linda / Behind My Red Door said...

Hi Ceekay,

I pray every day that we find a cure and one that doesn't have so many side effects sure would be a blessing. I hope your body adjusts to the chemo and the side effects diminish.

Your stereoscope is wonderful. What a precious gift.

Happy Spring and no need to explain where you are. I am sure I speak for others when I say do just what feels right to your body and spirit. We understand.

warm hugs, Linda

Hello Dear, Sweet Ceekay,
I am sorry you aren't feeling too energetic right now, I understand.
I'm hoping that you energy comes back soon and that you will be feeling better.
I love to visit your blog. Your vintage viewer is reall spectacular, what a great find.
Looks good on the old trunk too.



The French Bear said...

Ceekay, you are so incredibly sweet and thoughtful, never apologize for being sick, everyone understands..... that is the wonderful part of this family of bloggers....we care so much for our friends!!!
I do wish you well soon though cause I love to visit your blog, I am sorry you aren't feeling well.
Chemo is a drag for sure, I don't think I know anyone who has liked it! I am praying that you will recover fast, sending you this hug ((((())))))))

Well, you may be dragging, but I found this post to be very interesting. I was recently in a consignment shop and saw one of these stereoscopes. I had no idea what it was, but I could tell that it was old. Thanks for solving that mystery for me.
How exciting to have another gift to look forward to.
I hope you are feeling better real soon.

Oh Ceekay, I'm so sorry you're feeling so bad. I just know that this tuff is going to be worth it though - feel bad now, and be cured later - okay? Praying for ya! laurie

Kathleen said...

WOW, that is interesting..I think I may have an old viewmaster somewhere..very modern compared to your wonderful gift!
I said a prayer for you, and will remember you at Church tomorrow...

Ceekay I am so sorry to hear you are not feeling well and will certainly be praying for you. Hope the new chemo will be working like it needs to for you!

I have one of those stereoscopes and love it. My friend Millicent who recently passed away had one in her home and I loved seeing the pictures on it when I would go see her as a child. They are hard to find these days!

You take care of yourself and consider yourself hugged!

bee blessed

Karen said...

Take care of yourself and don't worry about us in blogland. Hopefully each day will be better than the last!
Your presents are even prettier in person!


♥ Sonny ♥ said...

You feeling better is what we are all praying for. From the first time I saw your photo pop up in my comments, I've felt like I knew you, somehow.. I think about you alot and wonder how you are and if wishes came thru I'd kick the butt of whats kicking yours and make it go away..
Healing energy headed your way sweetie..
many blessings and good thoughts

Laura said...

Dear Ceekay-
I pray for your restored energy, but even if it takes time, it will be OK.
This came to me this morning and reading your post confirmed it.

This may be a short season of commenting on others' writing for me-rather than writing as much.
I don't know.
I haven't felt like writing either.
You are a blessing-
Have fun with your new gifts!

Hi CeeKay Sweetie...
I wanted to touch base with you today and see how you are feeling? What day do you take chemo this week? How do you feel about this new program? Sorry you were under the weather. I did soak up some rays for you sweetie. I actually got a little bit of a sunburn.

Hope you are feeling better this week, and that maybe each week it will get a little bit better. I am praying for you sweetie, and praying for a miracle. They happen every day why not YOU? I love you girl.

I hope you will be able to come to the luncheon. It is going to be such a fun time. Keep me posted sweetie. I love you, Sherry


Don't worry about us.. you take good care of yourself. Get the rest you need. We are praying for you. What a great gift you were given.

You are so often in my thoughts. I believe that God puts you on my mind so that I pray for you RIGHT THEN!

Ceekay I hope this post finds you feeling better. I am sorry that the chemo is being so rough on you. I am sorry I realized how insensitive I was in my last post.
I have such faith in my loving God , that I just know if all our blogging friends start praying for your healing it will happen!! Nothing is impossible to God.!! Your healing is on its way sweetie.....hang in there!!

Hi Ceekay,
Thank you for stopping by today. I know you are not feeling well and I appreciate your visit.
