Wow, time does fly even when all things are not fun. I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day and if you were off that you enjoyed your President’s Day. We went to a program at my BIL’s church for V-day and it was actually quite cute and they even crowned a Mr. & Mrs. Valentine complete with crowns, sash and flowers. We then headed out of town to visit my FIL as he turned 91 on Sunday – Praise the Lord!! He is still doing well, eats whatever he wants, smokes and because where they live is so rural, he gets into his pick-up and drives around…..I think he would be devastated if the kids took his driving privileges away but Lord knows that I pray he doesn’t injure himself or someone else while he is out.
I have several packages to mail and don’t foresee an opportunity to make it to the PO until next Monday or Tuesday so I am asking for patience from those waiting on some things from me.
Last week, I had to go to the Endocrinologist in that I have a goiter and after some blood tests, it was determined that I have Hashimoto Thyroiditis, try saying that 5 times fast. Basically my body generates antibodies to attack my thyroid. At this time, my doctor just wants to monitor me and I am cool with that as I was not interested in hormone pills nor surgery but needless to say it was a week of constant prayer as the appointment approached and continued prayer that the condition doesn’t worsen. My blood work also revealed low Vitamin D levels so I have to take extra vitamins for that. I don’t like to take pills of any sort so taking this plus a multivitamin has been interesting to say the least.
I took a great metal class last week at a local bead store. My teacher has her own site and Etsy store, check her out. I am excited about incorporating some new techniques into my work and of course I am still praying for my 1st sale. 😉
Garden planning is underway and I am looking forward to this year being that I am expanding the garden. My neighbors and I were talking about trying to partner up on some things so we can all benefit…kinda like our own CSA.
I thank each of you for reading and sharing in my adventures.
