I survived

Hard to believe but I did survive that trip to the Dentist.  I have had some very bad dental experiences in the past and some bad dentists but I actually like this dentist. I saw him again Friday as my mouth was still quite sore.  He said there was a slight infection but I didn't need antibiotics unless it got worse.  He recommended drinking and rinsing my mouth with camomile tea.  He said that it was a very good herb treatment, but he would write me a prescription for the antibiotics if I wanted it.  I was not to fill it unless the area started feeling like it was pulsating.  To shorten this story I came home buying camomile tea on the way.
 I go to the Dentist again this Friday.  Just a side note .......... His receptionist is a knitter.
On the knitting note I have finished my Simple Lines Shawl. I would post a photo of it here but I don't know how to do that with my IPad.

And talking about that .......... Coffee seems to be a hazard around here.  The other day Bill went to get up from his chair.............. OH have to tell you that he uses the top drawer in the side table as a flat space so it is always sticking out.   He also has one of those chairs that lifts up to assist you in standing.     Now he moves the TV table his computer sits on to the right ( same side as the coffee table) .............. Pushes the button to raise the chair ............... Tries to put his quilt to the right side but the drawer is in the way so he has to put the quilt on the drawer .............. This knocks over the lamp ............. The lamp falls forward hitting his coffee cup ( that he insists keeping on the TV table) ........
The coffee cup tips over dumping its contents all over his computer.  I grab the computer tipping it upside down to drain out the coffee. Bill is standing swearing at the lamp.......... Then I am busy telling him if he did as I told him and put the coffee on end table this wouldn't have happened.

Needless to say the computer couldn't be fixed so Jill found him another one on Craig's list.
It is newer and has way more memory so it may have been a blessing in disguise.   Tuesdays are seniors day at Value Village so we went and found this small computer table, on wheels , with two  shelves and a little round bit the pulls out the side where he puts his coffee.  It is 6 inches below the computer and I have the TV table as my little 3 legged table finally bit the dust.

While we were at VV I found two sweaters to recycle.  One is cashmere in a cream colour and the other is merino wool and angora in emerald green. The green one is all apart just need to skein the 2 balls Jill did.   Haven't decided what I will do with this yarn yet but think  I will put several strands of the cashmere together and make some fingerless gloves.  Dotty gave me some recycled cashmere in a green that DD2  loves so think I will make her something out of that yarn.

No Jill or kids the last two mornings and I am having withdrawal.  I am sure tomorrow they will be here so I will survive.  Well that's it for today.  Am going to frog sweaters or knit or spin or play silly games an my IPad.

I am not happy

I had to go to the dentist today and had. Tooth pulled. My entire face that was frozen is hurting as I forgot to tell him about that type of freezing.  I don't think this is making much sense but oh we'll. now I am going back to being miserable.

I can not believe it is the middle if January.  Where has the time gone?..............
Bill is finally over the flu after about  6 weeks and has lost over. 50 pounds.  I have had an upset stomach for the past few days and have probably not lost an ounce.............. Life is definitely not fair.......... Not that I want  6 weeks of flu but would like to have lost a couple of pounds......

I am knitting a shawl for me right now. I am doing the 12 shawls in a year challenge.  Last year I managed to finish 6 and believe all but one were gifts.  Don't know if I will manage to make 12 this year but am going to try.

I am doing this on the IPad DH got me for my Birthday.  This was because Elizabeth spilt her Mothers French Vanilla Coffee on my Mac book and on the printer.  The Mac turns on but the keys don't work correctly.  The printer works but lies about paper jams.

 Christmas  was  lovely.  Jill had us over for brunch and gift opening and we all went to Cory and Aaron's for dinner and more gifts.  Che and Liz didn't get out for Christmas but other then them and Brianne we were all together.

I haven't figured how to put photos from my IPad on the blog so there may not be any photos for a while .

Cory went it the Island to visit Gran who was 93 this month. She is getting very frail and I don't know how much longer she will be with us .  Now that everyone is feeling better we are hoping to get over to see her this month.

Well today I think I will go root in my yarn stash to see if I can find the yarn I want for the shawl pattern Sharon gave me.
This is one of those patterns that will probably take me months to finish.  I do tend to be easily distracted.............  OH look at that..............
Anyway that's why I have so many UFOs   .......... No I am not telling you how many.      Maybe this year I will actually get some of the UFOs finished ............. at least that is my goal.
