I'm thinking of changing my blog title to
"The Weekly Blog"
since that seems to be how often I post anymore. I'm not really going to change it but it seems that I used to post more often than once a week. I have been tired lately and now I am sick as well. I thought it was allergies at first but after five days of getting worse, I finally broke down and called my doctor's office. They said there is a sinus virus going around and I will need antibiotics. All I know is I'll try anything at this point, I feel miserable.
But all is not lost. I did have some good days last week. My DIL brought the grandkids over for a visit. I gave them their fingerless gloves that I made for them.
If you look closely at Sarah's glove you can see the little hearts that I crocheted and sewed on to them. Jack's are Camo of coarse. They both seemed pretty happy with their new gloves.
Since then I've made another pair for my daughter Ginny as well as a pair of cuffs that she requested. So I've had plenty to keep me busy while sitting around with Spring fever!!
My granddaughter Sarah spent the night with us and we had fun despite the fact that grandma was worn out.
Here she is doing her imitation of Superman,
This kid is a real cracker like her grandma,
her sense of humor fits right in with grandma and grandpa's!!
A few days later, when I thought that I just had allergies, a friend of mine and I went out to eat at China Buffet. I've been a very good girl with my eating habits so we splurged!!
I've dropped a pant size since I've been able to start riding my bike again. I rode three miles yesterday, today, nothing. Too sick.
After lunch we went thrifting, something we both love to do. I came home with this cute little shelf. I wanted to put it up in the kitchen.
My husband has a shot glass collection that is all jumbled up on a shelf that really makes it hard to see them. So I thought this would be good for that until I got it home that is.
It was then that I realized there was not one square foot of wall big enough left in the kitchen to hang it. Sigh....
|Maybe above Mr. Pig over the door? No, not quite spacey enough.|
As you can see my kitchen walls and everything else is very "Full"!! It's nick knack heaven I tell you.
I really like this shelf though so I think if I am ever able to paint my little apartment upstairs, I will hang it up there somewhere. Yes it would look nice up there.
I can't paint up there yet as the roof leaks in a few spots. We're waiting on some estimates as I type this. Maybe it will gets replaced or fixed this year or maybe not!
All I know is that I won't paint until it's fixed.
Lets see what else is new. Oh yeah my husband and I went out to lunch Saturday. Guess where we went? China Buffet! It's addicting I tell you. Then we just bummed around town, sort of window shopping.
He's driving a newer truck right now, just temporarily. As they were servicing his truck, they found that his steering was ready to give out. We were grateful that they found it and it is being fixed but he absolutely hates this newer truck. It's an automatic Semi Tractor and he just hates the thing! I wish I could drive it, HeHeHeHe....
I've dreamed about driving one before. It was fun!!! But he's not having fun with all of the electronic features which includes one that automatically brakes when a car cuts in front of him. Which means he has no control if the roads are slick, the darn truck just brakes on it's own!!
I'm saying prayers that his truck will be fixed by the time he gets to Cedar Rapids this weekend. I know he will feel much better being in his own rig.
He will be turning 50 in just a couple of weeks. My daughter Katie says that he will always be 47 to her! LOL!!!
My Katie is doing well. She is in love. It was a bit surprising at first but I guess we are getting used to it now. As long as she keeps her grades up, she can be in love all she wants.
My Daughter-in-law will be having a major surgery on Monday. One that someone her age should not have to go through but it is very necessary. We will be praying for her and my son in the months to come.
My oldest daughter, Ginny is doing fine. She has been very busy at work and preparing her friends bridal shower and Party. I know it's been stressful for her but that's because she likes things to be just so.
I really miss her and hope that I get to see her possibly this summer. It's been six months
(my knee surgery) since we've seen her.
I think that is all the news that I have for now. The doctor's office just called me, my prescription is ready so I guess I will finish here and go pick it up.
I hope you are all well and am grateful that we can't spread human germs through the computer.
So long for this week!!
