Good afternoon!
This will be short.  Been kind of half to three quarters miserable this week with the plugged up head and headache.  Didn't even take many pictures.  (In fact I just quick took the bullet pages pictures right now--LOL!)  
****
Yes, Leah and I worked on my bullet Tuesday night till late.  Got two pages done--the monthly calendar...
 ...and what needs to be on the back side of that calendar spread--which is the current week's page and the monthly tracker.
We have two more pages to make--with their appropriate back sides.  She's making some optional variations, too.  Like 28, 29, 30 and 31 day monthly tracker pages and there will be an option to include or not include the doodle boxes on my weekly goals list page.  (With the unpredictable manner of my life I prefer "goals" rather than "tasks" so I don't feel as badly when I am unable to get to them--LOL!)
****
Anyways, Leah is planning on coming back tomorrow night (Tuesday) to work on them some more.  Last week she also changed my smoke alarm batteries and got my photos to work again from my phone to laptop.  
****
And yet I took very few pictures.  I went to take a picture of the big covey of 20 here to eat, but by the time I got there with my cell phone half of them were gone. 
Can you see them above?  They were chasing the other covey of partridges away...
...while the less aggressive/hungrier half watched the ruckus! 
Yes, I was right.  There is more than one covey that visits Rita's Bird Cafe.
****
While I have been cuddled under a blanket in my chair with my Puffs tissues, McFamily went with friends to Minneapolis this last weekend.  Leah texted me that they got all my IKEA stuff!!  All three cabinets for the studio, the storage containers for my bathroom shelves, and a collapsible cat carrier for Annie.  Not all the art supplies for Ian were in stock, but the most important one was--their kid's paints.  :)
****
Since I seem to be more miserable the past 4-5 days I think I might need to go to the walk-in clinic to see if this is a sinus infection or if it is just a bad, clinging cold wearing me down and getting the better of me--LOL!  I could need antibiotics to get rid of this since it has been going on for a couple of weeks or more.  (I hate when they ask me about timelines--I am quite skilled at ignoring body pain or physical annoyance of any kind because I very deliberately do not pay close attention to something I have to live with every day that would most definitely not be positive to focus on.)  I'll check with Leah.  I know she offered last week.  
****
Well, that's it.  Hope I am chattier next week.  Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US, but everybody have a thankful week.  ;)  Till next time.  Love and hugs from Fargo!

  2. Rita, I hope you will finally be over that pesky cold (or whatever it is) very soon. It does seem like it's been going on longer than usual for these things. I hope you are just taking it as easy as you can until you're stronger. You are very important to many of your blogging friends! :-)

  3. Hi Rita, I sure hope you feel better soon. If you have a sinus infection you will need antibiotics so it would be good to get it checked out. I was sick last week with a bug but some better now. I think the word is out about Rita's Bird Cafe! I bet you and Annie have fun watching them all. I'm glad Leah could come out to help with your bullet pages. How exciting that they got your items at Ikea!

    Feel better and have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!

  4. Hi Rita - always a treat to see your Bird Cafe guests. Hope you get to the walk in clinic in case you do need an antibiotic to deal with the sinus pain. Lovely that your wonderful McFamily picked up your IKEA order, soon you and Leah will be putting things together and moving things into their new homes.
    Hugs and hope you are feeling better each day.

  5. I'm sorry you're so bunged up. I've had something similar. Gone on for ages. It's a good idea not to focus on something unpleasant. I do hope you feel better soon Rita and that the walk-in clinic will help.

  8. Oh Rita.. i'm so sorry you feel bad.. sinus stuff is the worst.. it just drains all the energy out of you .. or at least it does me... and if i'm not careful it can get down in my chest then i know i'm in for it.. coughing etc.. so take care and maybe it is time to go see the doc.. I've been enjoying your snail mail letter.. I think i will finish it with my coffee this morning.. :) Hugs! deb

  9. I hope you're feeling better and getting rest. I can definitely identify with sinus problems - and they seem to get worse in cold (and damp) weather.

    I've got a feeling you will have a lot of feathered friends waiting for a Thanksgiving meal at Rita's Bird Cafe.
    Have a pleasant Thanksgiving!

  10. I'm sorry you're feeling puny and hope you feel better soon. Your birds are so much fun for me to see, because we get nothing like those partridges here. Congrats on your new incoming furnishings. Exciting!

    I always like the photos of your birds.

  15. Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. It sounds like you've really come down with something that's taking all your energy. Your bullet journal looks really nice!
