Thank you for all your support and kind words on my last post. When you're in the thick
of yucky things in life, you go into a doom-and-gloom-panicky mode, right? I know we've
all been there for different kinds of reasons. The good news is: our water and well issues
seem okay now. The bad news is: the owner of the well company never called us back,
even after leaving numerous messages. Great customer service! We will keep trying. We
still have a few questions. And my dentist appointment where I got the first part of my crown
went...well, I don't want to say fine, because it certainly wasn't pleasant while I was there
and in the middle of it. But at least I like this dentist and he is understanding about
my nervousness. He gives me little breaks and told me to raise my hand if I was feeling
uncomfortable. This is my fourth crown. I've earned queen status by now, don't ya think?
I go back in three weeks to put the permanent crown in and to get more Novocaine on the
other side to attempt to remove a cavity underneath another crown.
On to more pleasant things...I was the winner in Connie from Crafty Home Cottage's
giveaway! Connie is not only a sweet, friendly woman ~ she is also artistic and does all
kind of crafts and needlework. Connie sent me a red and white dish towel with the
cutest stitched house and heart. The bottom is trimmed in red and white rick rack.The colors
go perfectly in my kitchen and the little house reminds me of Comfy House.
There was also a matching quilted and stitched pot holder which I have hanging on
the side of my fridge. (Hello, old family photos.)
Connie also sent me this beautiful red and white banner. Each little pennant
has a stitched heart. Adorable! I wanted to hang this in my kitchen, but the only
possible place would be my china hutch and it's too narrow.
So I ended up hanging it on the wall above Tim's bed/the guest bed.
The sun is shining brightly here today but it is bitter cold. It was -5F when I woke up
this morning. I think this cold weather calls for some baking and cooking, so I'm off
now to make a dairy-free apple cake for Saturday. My mom and aunt are coming to
my house on Saturday - we're going to have a card-making day - and they're both
lactose intolerant. I thought it'd be nice to have a little treat with our coffee. And
tonight's dinner will be stuffed manicotti, so that will take some prep work, too.
Happy Thursday, everyone.
