This will be brief.
Haven't been feeling well.
You know I am poorly if I canceled Gramma Day.
Anyways, on the mend now...I think.
Note below the grouse that is staring inside.
She does this a lot--LOL!
Not sure what it is that has her attention. Not Annie because if Annie is around she scares them all away--LOL! Sometimes I wonder if she's looking at Annie's feathery toys on the floor and thinks they might be chicks?
Well, so much for all the things I wanted to do last week. Best laid plans, huh?
What little did get done this week...Caroline brought groceries on Monday. My Amazon order has been arriving in bits and pieces. (The last biggest purchase is supposed to arrive today via UPS--will take pictures.) Something new for my exercise days--got a balance board...
...and some resistance bands. :)
I did manage to finish cutting the three-tree dies on Friday, at least.
I love my view from the studio table by the window.
Was sleeping very poorly for several days. For example, being up 6 times in 7 hours one night. Not good. Slept a bit better last night, though. I finally took my temperature on Friday because I was running hot and cold. Reverse temp (97 to 97.4). Always easier when you are sick to have a below normal temp than run a high temp. Dagan and I both do that sometimes.
Dagan came by last night to help me out. Had to empty the litter box (not much in there) and then refill it with the old brand I ordered from Amazon. Annie seems to be glad to have the old familiar litter back again.
Dagan brought out trash and brought in more bird seed from the garage. Then he sat down and told me some bad news. He still has a job but the company has hired an efficiency expert to cut costs and they just let a whole bunch of people go--all branches. Before Christmas, too! That happened to Dagan once. The Fargo branch is the smallest but took the biggest hit--20% of the employees were let go. Plus they are going to transition 15 people of the ones who are left to work from home over the next couple of months. Not good news. Dagan is one of those techie people who keep all the computers talking to each other. Makes you wonder if they are considering closing the Fargo branch altogether.
Time will tell.
He also told me that Ian is going to start preschool full time tomorrow! Ian misses out on a lot because most of the kids go all day. He's much more used to the routine of school now and likes it a lot so he should really enjoy going full time.
Speaking of--Dagan brought half a dozen cupcake treats last night (yes, I ate one last night and one this morning already--LOL!)...
...with a note dictated and signed by Ian.
Tori, it says:
"I love you Gramma, buh bye, the cupcakes are for you, and you aren't feeling very good very much of the day. Love, Ian"
How sweet!! Just what Gramma needed--comfort food! Chocolate! :)
I quit facebook. It says my account will be deleted in 30 days. Wasn't 90 days, so that's good.
Hopefully this week I'll be feeling better and be more productive again. But as you know...I never do know--LOL!
As Ian always says--
I love you, buh bye!!
Till next week. :)
