Good afternoon, dear readers!
Well, it appears that there are no more kidney stones, but the bout with kidney stones masked another problem- Dad now has shingles. He is taking an anti-viral medication and is at home resting. Thank you for all of the prayers. My family is most appreciative.
I spent this morning dragging all of the limbs Jim pruned from the peach & pear trees and rose bushes to the back. He'll be busy this weekend spraying the orchard with dormant oil and doing vegetable garden prep. As I was dragging the limbs, I noticed that the nandinas along our west property line were full of berries. The cedar waxwings & cardinals have been gorging themselves.
I finished the special goody for my mom, but still cannot share the images with you as her birthday is this weekend. I'll post the eyecandy next week and am planning to have a FREE pattern ready to share with you, too!
Guess I had better go give myself a nice hot oil manicure after all that yardwork before picking up my tatting needle and silk thread again. Have a wonderful weekend & until next week~
