Before I get into today’s blabbing I do need to let Linda and Lynn know that their items are going in the mail today. With Joe being sick I didn’t want to leave him alone, and yesterday being a Holiday (Martin Luther King Day) the post office was not open. I will be going today to mail out your items.
So on to the blabbing.
Thank you all for asking after Joe. Today is the first day he has got out of bed without being dizzy, sick at his stomach, puffing greatly from the exertion, and his skin color has gotten better as the days pass. He was ghostly white for a while, then an odd shade of gray. He’s pinking up now, no longer complaining about being cold then getting totally winded after walking a few feet to the thermostat to cook me out by cranking up the heat. He then gets the “Rising Damp” (sweating) and calls me to turn the heat down.
He got outside yesterday for a while. Our neighbor needed a ride to the auto parts store and Joe said he would take him. When he got back from the errand he had energy for about 15 minutes longer before he spent the next few hours napping in his recliner.
Joe is shooting for heading to Dallas, with me tagging along, to get his trucks hooked up. He’ll come by home for the night then head out to Akron. Today will be the test of how good he is feeling. The thought of him hooking up all by himself while he is feeling puny is not something I’m advocating he do. It is going to be bad enough on his stamina getting in and out of the trucks during the drive to Akron.
So if he continues to feel energetic and not so weak I will go with him to Dallas and mother hen him until he complains. He’ll have the time to gather strength on the way there so…hopefully….when he arrives he can get unhooked without falling down from exhaustion.
While I’m waiting to hear from Tim on the Poker Post-Its I’m dabbling in things. Not getting too involved in glue or other substances that need total attention just in case Joe calls me from another room in desperate need of my help.
Our daughter, Tiffany, has requested I make her a scrapbook for here Funeral Home and grave marker photos. I’m making slow progress on it. I now have four pages completed for her. One of them I did in August and the other page I worked on yesterday.
I’m using DCWV’s Street Lace papers for Tiffany’s album. I’ve left the right hand page with open space so she can add photos haphazardly in the background. I’ve made a pocket from a strip of the Street Lace border paper. Adding beads to the row of flowers at the bottom. While I had my bead drawer out yesterday I made some pins and tucked one under some flowers I made on one of the two tags.
Last year, while out driving for my Day Job, we were at a truck stop. I found a bunch of necklaces that I liked the colors of.
Making several pins from just one of the strands of the necklace was interesting. The silver and black “Bead Spacers” are from one of my small collections. I used one of the bead spacers to make the “Space Ship?” Domino. I nestled it in a brass colored ring. I thought these were jump rings but they are miniature key rings.
I made several of these pins yesterday while I listened for Joe.
Now they are being stored in a box.
While I had the bead drawer out I thought I’d try making some charms. I’ve found out that is not my forte. To much fiddling involved just to get a dangly thing happening.
I think I’ve covered it all 😀 All this to just say…..Not much happening around here.
I found a YouTube video yesterday on making a mini insert with tons of pockets. I’m going to mess around with that today for Tiffany’s album. I’m sure I’ll regale you with it all tomorrow. Aren’t you just so excited? 😀
Have a great day, everyone.
