Gifts in the Mail
The first picture is something I’ve been wanting to play with for ages, & I finally ordered it for the next Fiberactions Blog Challenge. The word this time is “Transformation”. That’s all I’m going to say about it for now.
This next package came from Judy Grant. She has such a pretty blog, & I was lucky enough to win one of her prizes from her Blog-anniversary! Some day Judy & I are going to get together to play! She lives just a few miles from my brother’s home in Michigan, & we have at least one friend in common from nursing that we know of. There are likely more.
The 3rd package was a book I ordered so long ago that I had forgotten about it! I had ordered it directly from Gloria Hansen herself, & she had emailed me right away to let me know she was out of town & would send it out when she returned in a few weeks, which was just fine with me. I want to really read & study this book, this winter, after I finish my next certification class in Advanced Cardiac Life Support. This will be my winter treat!
I have made it past the illness already. I had called in sick for today, when I was feeling so bad yesterday, & I am glad I did. Last night, around 1230 a.m., my DH flushed the toilet, & we lost all water pressure. We’ve been having issues with the water ever since the guys were doing the rock-work on the house, & they left the hose running for 2 days, until our well virtually ran dry. It is a slow recovery well, & usually isn’t a problem for our general needs, but leaving the water run the way they did, got dirt & air into the water lines. Last night seemed to be the climax. All water stopped upstairs. After running around, disconnecting the faucets, flushing the lines & reconnecting, we got a clump of dirt out, & the water pressure came back, better than it’s been in months. Problem solved by 130 a.m.! I was glad I didn’t have to get up for work this morning.
My appetite was back by 1 this afternoon. Darn it!
