I'm glad you like the squares. Good to hear the girls had a good day too.

 

Not much happening here. I'm sure it's hot outside but I haven't been out there today, we had a good storm a couple hours ago and it is still a little gray out there, we need the rain so I'm not going to complain. I'm working on afghans for the grandkids and relaxing, I go back to work 2 weeks from today. Guess that's about it, have a great evening.

oh Lacy so glad you got good news!  

 

hey katy I like to smear a little wasabi on a cracker and eat it to clear my sinuses when I am having problems------That horseradish opens them up for a bit anyway,  Also taking an anti inflammatory like ibuprofen helps relieve the swelling in your sinuses.  I hae issues year round due to allergies and then its worse with an infection.  I also bought one of those sinus rinse bottles where you rinse your nose with saline solution or some use the netipot and that really helps clean the gunk out. dh is amazed when he uses it after being out on a fire call or mowing when it is dry and dusy.   I will have to remember to try the vinegar steam to see how that compares.

Yay!!!!  :manyheart  :hug That's such great news and I know you're so relieved!! 

 

Nothing much to report here today, just been working hard on Uncle Sam! I'm about to finish square 8, hopefully before I head to bed, and then I'll only have 4 more to do! Thank goodness! I just need to figure out where to find these buttons for his nose... That will be the next big hunt! 

 

Tomorrow is a Peanut visit. Sister has a recall on her Jeep so I'm going with them to get that done at the dealership so I can help occupy Peanut and if it will be too long, I'll drive us to run a couple errands instead of waiting. 

 

Okay, off to get these stars sewn on this square and then on to bed. Hope everyone is doing well!  :)

Enjoy your visit with Peanut. I have really been missing my grandkids this week but we will all be getting together on Saturday and the grandkids will be coming home with me for a few days.

 

I'm still working on the blankets for the grandkids, I didn't know what I was getting myself into when they asked for these but it will be worth it when they are finished. Not much else going on around here. Have a great day everyone.

Nothing much going on here.  Since its been hot and dry for a couple of weeks the grass is going dormant and turning brown. I used to kind of feel bad about it but this year it is a welcomed relief.

 

 Mostly been dealing with cell phone issues.  We had good reception at home (at least in the living room) until Feb this year and then nothing.  Was finally told they were working on our tower.  Very fleeting reception came back after about 6 weeks only to go dead again a couple of weeks later. dh used his a fair amont but I never really used mine a lot.   It was handy since we still have dial up internet that people could call on my cell and it was handy when we had problems with the landline.    Phones worked like they always had anywhere else we went and when they had us check, the phones were actually picking up a signal from another carrier.  The phones were old so they had us go to one of the stores to see if they could put a newer card in them. Did that Sun afternoon.  Our phones were too old for that so we took a chance and purchased a couple of new phones. The guy looked at the map which shows we get signal at our address and we had him help us pick out phones that should work here.  We got two different models and mine for the most part is receiving signal at home but dh's does not so I spent more time on the phone with tech service.  They finally told me that the next tower down from ours is down for upgrade so that is putting more pressure on our tower.  They sent us a booster unit for the house and so far today it's not picking up a signal to boost even though my cell is.  I got my first smart phone so I have been playing with it.  It's way smarter than I am.  Thankfully my sister has been "making" me use hers so it hasn't been hard to figure out the basics.  I am kind of excited as I had been wanting one but wasn't going to buy new ones since the old ones worked  fine. .  .

THe puffiness in my cheeks, and around my eyes is way better ow too,as that was painful as well, all in all, can't complain, it's getting better, what with the antibiotiics too, im sure that is kicking mucus ll the way to Hawaaii and back, lol...

Hey, the premier of a new show, b ased on that book Zoo is on tonight, im going to try to catch that, might be good, i noticed too the movie Zoo is coming out soon too, cool..

katy glad you are finally feeling better.   We still have to mow but not as often.   I can't even honestly say we needed phones.  I can pretty much live without them.   We got them when dh had to have one for his few years of working in real estate but now he likes it if he breaks down on the road (45 miles one way to work).  Mine is used more to track me down when we split up shopping.  I used to go for days without touching mine until Feb when I started monitoring it to see if our coverage came back.  Since the smart phone is the one that works at home I am glad that's what I got.  

 

yarn_monkey hope you had a good day with sister and Peanut

 

It's been a gray but humid day here.  We got some rain last night and maybe more to come.

Hi all! I was so exhausted when I got home yesterday, I made it through dinner and went to bed! I realized I was taking my decongestant way too late and it kept me up until 5am yesterday morning! Needless to say I am not taking that second dose anymore!! 

 

I had a great visit with Sister and Peanut yesterday. He was very happy to see his Tee Tee. Every time I'd look at him in the rearview mirror, he'd look up at me and lean his little head as far forward as it would go and grin all big and toothy.  :manyheart  He is very proud of those teeth! We did a little running around and wore the poor kid out and he slept straight through Target, including a boy bouncing a soccer ball the whole way around the store. Every time we thought we got away, here he came again. I couldn't believe Peanut slept through it! 

 

Otherwise I've just been working on Uncle Sam and cleaning up for my dad to come visit for about a week starting tomorrow! I'm super excited to have him here! Plus I finished square 9 and started square 10 on Uncle Sam so before I go to bed, I'm going to take a little break and work on a Moogly CAL square instead. I need a break from all that navy blue- it's hard on the eyes! 

 

I hope everyone is doing well! Katie, glad to hear you're feeling better finally!  :)

 

Oh! And my hearing is finally back!  :yay  DH has been testing me by whispering in the direction of the bad ear. I'm winning so far!!  :lol
