Monday, February 15, 2021
Well, well--it is already Monday again. The week flew by. I was admittedly watching pieces of the trial this past week (troubling and sad) so I never got into the studio except to make Valentine's cards for the boys (forgot to take pictures).
The Critter Cafe has been very busy with it being below zero all week.
I was terrible this week at remembering to take pictures...obviously. But we had a great time. After the boys went to bed (and they both stayed up later because Ian doesn't have school today plus it being a fairly rare Gramma visit) Dagan, Leah, and I were talking till like 12:30am!
Dagan and Leah want to pay for me to have an online consultation with Elliot Overton. He specializes in helping people with chronic conditions like fibromyalgia with their health and diet. He knows all about oxalates, supplements, keto, etc. Leah and I have been following him on YouTube for quite a while. I honestly get lost sometimes with the specifics of the scientific studies and the chemistry of it all--but he seems to know what he's talking about.
Anyways, it could take months to get an appointment for all we know, but I agreed. Leah is going to set it up. Leah thinks she can be on the video call, too. I really would prefer that because when you suffer from fibro fog or brain fog I just don't think I would remember everything to tell him or everything he tells me--LOL! I guess there are a couple of follow-up video calls included, too, and I will likely have to have bloodwork done. There's a place in town you can get any tests done you want--in and out, I guess.
Well, it can't hurt. I am seeing gradual progress but it has been really slow--year and a half now. I have been very happy to see any improvements...but Elliot may have suggestions for me to find a way to improve faster...never know? I really don't have anything to lose. I'll let you know when I know what's going on. ;) Wish me luck! Might help. I hadn't seen any improvements in my health for 20 long years--in fact, there'd been a constant gradual and definite decline until I changed my diet and started on some supplements...so who knows, right? Think positive!
Oh, and--never fear--I will let my new osteopath, Dr. Kessler, know all about what I am doing when I do see her.
So that's what's going on my way. Still freezing here...but the sun shines almost every day so that the patio lights seem to be working again--LOL! I go out every few days and try to sweep the rabbit poop off my patio--whatever isn't frozen to the cement--LOL! That's what makes the snowbank look extra poopy.
I hope to get to the Wanderlust classes or cardmaking this week--take a break from hauling books around. ;)
Dagan and Leah go down to Minneapolis on Wednesday for his pacemaker adjustment. Long trip--a good 8 hours in the car probably. Predicted to be above zero (6F) finally, though. Two week quarantine from our bubble after that exposure, of course. But then at the end of the month Leah picks up Ian's homework and does the Costco inside trip--so we won't have an operable bubble again till mid-March. I'll have lots of time to purge and play. :)
Best to you and yours. Stay safe and well...warm or cool, depending on where you live. Life is a precious gift...no matter what is going on or how you feel or what hurdles you have to leap...a precious gift. I shall forever cling to joy and hope. How can I not? ;)

I guess I was so busy this week I hardly had time to take pictures--LOL! Only have a few...but it was a good week and I got a lot done. :)
Tuesday I made soup and did laundry.
Wednesday night Leah came over to work on cards. Have four trays in progress. Got all the bases cut and any front and/or inside pieces we needed for each set. Then we stamped and embossed two sets. An exhausted Leah left about midnight.
50 embossed birthday cards ready for coloring.
...but where to put it in there? How to arrange the tables? Which table to remove? Probably the little glass one with the red legs which fit perfectly in my last apartment and I love it but...
