I hope you all have lovely plans today. It's cloudy and foggy today. The perfect kind of day to snuggle with your sweetie-if he wasn't at work-and if I still wasn't sick.
Yes, the sad and boring recurring theme of this blog lately has been sickness. Ugh! I did go to the doctor on Monday and my white blood count was sky high, which indicates infection somewhere. They don't know where though, and since a fever and exhaustion are my only symptoms, they told me to go home and rest. If I'm still having a fever next Monday I'm supposed to let them know. Blah, blah, blah. The receptionist told me about a supplement that she takes and she hasn't been sick in three years. I ordered some off Amazon but since it won't arrive for two weeks, I ventured out to the health food store and bought a bottle. It cost three times as much as Amazon! I'm trying so hard to get better.
We had plans to go to Montana for the weekend to take Caleb his birthday presents. We missed his birthday because we both had the flu. Needless to say we're not going. I'm supposed to go to Portland the middle of March to watch Piper for a week. Please pray I'm completely better by then.
But there is good news! Yesterday my fingers finally stopped hurting enough to crochet. And this is what I began. I'm making another granny scrap afghan. I'm enjoying the easy, no pattern following ease of it. I just reach into the basket and whatever color I pull out is what I use!
We did decide to get the wood stove. Thank you for the advice and emails. I investigated all of venting concerns, etc. with the installer and everything seems to be working out.
Installation is scheduled for next Wednesday. Pictures will be forthcoming!
Have a lovely day everyone. Thank you SO much for the kind words and advice you've all given me. I still find it mind boggling that I have friends who care about me virtually all over the world.
