Temporary Plan ~ Random Tidbits

We literally sat around until almost 11am Saturday morning, tossing around what we'd do and when.  It was that cold out. Saturday we went shopping for more car parts, picked up chicken feed, made a quick stop at Mom's, and spent time on the phone seeing if any of the boys could help work on the car today.

The stop at Mom's was quick due to her not feeling well.  Her friend wants to look at my crocheted bookmarks, so I did a pick up of cash for some already sold items, and handed her the bookmarks.  I hope she feels better soon.  This weather is hard on us.

Check this out!  If you crochet, these are on sale at Mary Maxim for $3.99!  At least they were on sale. I haven't gone back to see if they are still at that price.  The heart charm comes in any color of birth month.  I know it's not "silver" but I've never seen this before.  I left it in my online shopping cart for a few days and him-hawed (shipping was awful).  I got an email for a free shipping on anything, so I bought myself one.  Happy Valentine's Day to me.

"charming" I've been perusing around for years and havn't found the right somethin somethin I have a charm bracelet I got for my 16th birthday, it's stark, that would be cute on there. Thank you for telling me about it.

Carol said...

Hope your mom is feeling better soon. I love that charm, although I never crochet these days.

Faith said...

I buzzed on over there, my birth month is out of stock, the story of my life. The items will be discontinued. Good that you got your charm when you did. I'll keep looking....

Faith, you are welcome. It comes with a necklace, but could be put on a charm bracelet too.

Kristina said...

Thanks Carol. The charm necklace is very cute.

Kristina said...

Faith, sorry you couldn't get one. They are hard to find too.

A charming necklace. Unfortunately I haven't retaught myself how to crochet again one handed. I will some day. Now I just knit.

Kristina said...

Thank you mamasmercantile and Cockeyed Jo

Your charm is beautiful.
For Valentine's Day, I was getting ready for a colonoscopy. I began fasting the 15th and had to stop taking pain meds the 15th, so by the time I was ready for my test on the 17th, I was in fine shape - tired, hungry, and just not happy at all. I went on with the test only to have the doctor to come out after to tell me the colon wasn't empty yet (how could it not be???) and that he wanted me to fast and drink the crap another 24 hours, and come back the next day. I told him NO, that I live about 40 miles away and don't drive, and arranging transportation was a hassle for me and for whoever agrees to take me.
So I came home and emailed my GP to update her and ask her to send me an at-home test.
Since the test, A retired RN friend of mine said the whole thing sounded weird to me. Why didn't they do an enema, etc. I don't know, but I'm wondering if they wanted me to come back a second time simply because the VA would pay for it. GRRR...
So, that's how my Valentine's Day went. ROFLOL
Love you all.
God bless.

RB, my Mom had that test done, and it's definitely not fun to fast and drink that stuff. I agree, they probably wanted more money. Grr.
