Thank y'all so very much for your kind thoughts and comments on my last post. I truly appreciate each and every one. Our boy arrived safely back on base late last night. Now I am counting the days until that next hug!
Yesterday I had a dentist appointment. On a side note. Did y'all know that clove oil was really good for tooth pain? My friend M told me that and wow! It really worked well! No cavities or root canal needed so I'm a happy girl.
Then I met up with two crazy girls, whom I love dearly, for a long overdue lunch. We spent three hours solving the problems of the world over really good Mexican food. $5.08 for a great meal at this little cafe!
Many belly laughs and snorting laughter took place, which in turn caused more belly laughs and snorting. And everyone that chose to dine at this particular establishment on that particular day may have had reason to question our sanity. These girls are good for my soul and I truly treasure their friendship. And M - I will be expecting that blog post...with pictures!
No photos of our time together which is probably a good thing! Oh, goodness! I just thought about cell phones! I hope no one snapped any and we're not on the Internet somewhere! People take pictures of everything these days and I'm fairly certain people who don't know us will think we'd taken a few too many sips of the apple wine.
On a previous trip, we had various people approach us and tell us we were having entirely too much fun. Not possible, and no. Drinking was not involved. Although during one gathering at L's home, our girl walked in and said, "Goodness! You should hear yourselves! Y'all sound like y'all are drunk!" Nope. Not a drop.
So today I have been up since 3. DH left at 4 to help the neighbors so that leaves me alone to putter...and sew!
I'm working on another red-white-and blue chevron quilt.
This one is for our boy for his bed in the barracks. He liked the one I had made previously so this morning, after DH left, I set about to cutting more squares
and began stitching hst's.
I've penciled in time for a nap, but I ought to make good progress and I'll pop in a few episodes of the Andy Griffith show while I press. The apple wine will have to wait until later.
