Health is good

While in Sydney, had to see a doctor last week. Actually, 2. First a GP and than the specialist. My physician in the US answered my e-mail and suggested an local visit was in order. I tried to contact the specialist and found out that I could see one 4 months after I am due back home. I was told to see the GP first and that would determined the urgency. So I walked in a Coogee clinic and saw the nicest GP. After a complete check up I was on my way to the specialist next morning. She is a extremely nice person and doctor. Had may tests done, she increased the dosage of medicine, added 1 more and I am feeling great again. But with one small problem. One of the side effects of the medicine is insomnia. And let me tell you. I am extremely happy today. It is 4 AM and I slept for 4 full hours. This is the most I have slept in 9 days. Oh joy!
I am reading a lot of quilting magazines that a friend lent me; but nothing else gets done.

Sculptures by the Sea 2

The Sculptures by the Sea is a very popular event in Bondi. There are artist represented from many countries in the world. Not only Aussies. It is worth the time. The walk is beautiful and the art work equally so. The photo below is a sculpture on the rock wall. It is really fun. The artists are Tim & Shayn Amber Wetherell from ACT. The photo above is a sculpture by Gretchen Lothrop. The catalogue says that she was born in Boston. But I think our homes are close. Most of her prizes come from North Carolina. Such as APSU, UNC, etc. Well done!
