Single scroll clover

Happy as can be. I got in to see my regular physician this morning and she agreed that I was indeed sick. LOL She recommended an antibiotic and a cortizone inhaler on top of the regular inhaler I had been using. When I went to pick up the medications at the local pharmacy, there was a problem with the insurance–they had my birthdate wrong so the prescriptions couldn’t be filled. I was asked to check back in an hour. So for now, I’m back home, taking Tylenol for the headache and using my inhaler.

I’m half-way through sewing the binding on the Thomas the Engine lap quilt and have the matching pillowcase cut out and ready to be sewn. I also have my next projects set in mind. The Depot needs some small items for the gift shop, so I’ll be working a few things up after this quilt is finished.

Although I’m still sick, having a dr. actually check me physically and validate what I knew to be true, makes me feel a bit better. It’s like turning the corner and knowing you’re going to get better. I told Robert I’d lost my sense of taste and smell, which for me, is something to remark about. I have very sensitive taste buds and my sense of smell is very strong. Not lately, however. It’s been strange in a way, because this illness keeps mutating on me. The nurse agreed with me, saying that you think you’re getting better then it comes back and hits you in a different way. She said although the current flu shot doesn’t exactly cover the virus that’s going around, it does lessen the symptoms for some people. I told her I guess we’ll be getting the flu shot from now on. We’d never believed in them before, but then we’d never had the flu like this before, either.

Be safe, be well (PLEASE) and be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. Our eldest grandson turned 18 yesterday. I posted a photo of him on FaceBook, taken when he was about four years old. He was sitting in the kitchen floor with the remnants of brownie batter — happiness is. We love you, Andrew!

My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

  1. I hope by now you have the prescribed medications. Sounds like you have more energy. Good luck with finishing up the quilt and pillow too.

      I got the pillowcase finished and have one side of binding left to sew down. Then I can move on to smaller projects for a while. I do have my meds and they are helping. Thanks!
