Book Club

I had Book Club yesterday.  We read Karolina Dalca Dark Eyes by M.R. Noble. 


I give it a 3 out of 10.  I was not a fan and was thankful that it was a quick read.  It is a Vampire series...needless to say I am not curious what happens next. 

In Book Club everyone can recommend a book and two of the gals like Vampire books.  

Far Guy's infusion was longer yesterday so I had time to go to Hobby Lobby...see that box in the looked Springy to me!  Yarn was not on none was purchased...just the pretty box.

Oh Deer

 Elvis was barking in the back yard, sometimes he does that if the neighbors black lab Nova is outside.  Then I saw three deer run through the area between the fences...Sadie must have heard them or translated the barking. She joined Elvis in the back yard to give them the what for.

I was not fast enough to get a photo of the three deer that stood in the neighbors yard that is not fenced.  They seemed unaffected by the dogs barking. 

We have been checking out some short You Tube clips...Sadie gets excited about deer and chickens ( she did eat a chicken once at the farm Sarah and Chris own)...ducks and birds do not entertain her and she is not real excited about squirrels. 

 I got a photo of Sadie standing watch! 

Jen is still under the weather.  She is on a liquid diet.  So far no one else in the household is ill. 
Knock on wood. 

I am certain the groundhog will be scared back in his hole by his shadow and we will have more than six weeks of Winter.

Going around

 The flu is going around.  We hope we escape.  We have had our flu shots but who really knows for sure what strain will pop up next.  Our Great Grands both had the flu, Jen helped take care of them and she was very ill yesterday.   She spent most of the day in the Emergency Room with horrible stomach pain, chills and vomiting. 

I found myself a decent Doctor for my Primary Care Physician, he ordered a tick panel to see if I have one of the other tick diseases besides Lymes.  In this town there are small clinics all have to be right on top of all the locations or you will find yourself in the wrong clinic.  Yesterday we went to a teaching clinic on the UND campus.  

I still have residual Lymes with fatigue and joint pain that flares from time to time.   It is the pits. BUT things could always be worse.

Crochet Progress

 I am still working on the Nordic Mosaic Crochet.  One more design is complete.

Part six the Nordic Trees are completed and work has begun on part seven called Nordic Baubles. 

The pattern has nine parts. It is slow going. 

This week is appointment week, we have appointments everyday but Friday.  We had to pick the coldest week out of the winter to go out everyday. 

The last day of January is upon us and we are gaining a bit of sunlight everyday.
