Hi friends! How are ya? Freezing like me? We have been barely making it above zero for our daytime highs around here lately. I gave Mabel her much needed haircut a few days ago. Henry needs a cut too. He is very, very fuzzy. I will have to wait just a bit longer. He needs that extra protection. It is going to get even colder in the next few days. The kids will get off of school one extra day, extending their Christmas vacation yet one more day. The schools have already decided to stay closed on this coming Monday. It will be a high of -11ºF with a windchill as low as -45ºF that day. That is just too dangerous for little and big people to be waiting for a bus or to be outside at all!
I received a lovely package in the mail from Anne yesterday. A beautiful Christmas card, great tea that we have all enjoyed, one of her sweet, little crocheted snowflake ornaments, and just look at that beautiful pillow made just for me! Oh Anne, it all so very nice, but that pillow really, truly touched my heart.
I do not take part in the TUSAL thing, but I do save my orts. I put them out for the birds in the spring. =) They use them to build soft, pretty nests!
I am going to pick up Theotokos again. I, um, took a small break already. I have not stitched a poodle in quite some time and just wait til you see these two cuties I am working on!! One done, one to go. They are small. One is apricot and one is grey. Imagine that! ;)
I continue to use the Voltaren gel for extra pain relief. It helps some. I go to the pain PA in less than 2 weeks now. I hope to get my Neurontin increased in dosage at that time. Thank you for your prayers and concern.♥
Keep warm my friends! Behold the Lord's glory and you will grow in grace.
Stitching and praying,
