Did you know that a dollar bill is six inches long? I had to get creative last night while trying to measure a piece of 28 count fabric for a new chart I picked up yesterday. I turned my stitchy bag inside-out looking for a measuring tape or a small ruler...NOPE, not there!! I was about to walk down to the front desk to ask for a ruler when I got the bright idea to look up via the internet the measurement of a dollar bill. So after dragging the dirty dollar across my linen several times I measured what I needed to start this.....
While at The Strawberry Sampler I dropped off both "Thank You For Serving(s)" for framing and picked up the two finishes I had left with them for framing in August. Here is Coffin Buzz: a FREEBIE offered by Paulette Stewart from Plum Street Samplers......
Next is Colonial Dry Goods by LHS.....
Now about the "Phase Two" part of this blog post title...............Remember last week when I had that 24-hour bug that took me 36 hours to recover from? I have moved on to a new week with a new virus! It seems my immune system checks itself at the New Jersey border saying, "No way, not goin' there, I'll be right here on your way back home." Monday morning greeted me with a very sore throat. Tuesday, my nose felt left out and wanted in on the fun. Today, my entire head (ears, nose, throat, eyes) is havin' a par-tayyyy!!! I think my chest has made reservations for tomorrow. Wouldn't want it to feel left out, ya know! While running around yesterday I stopped at Walgreen's and picked up some Emergen-C.
When I was sick last week Masterchief came right home from work and headed for our little two burner hotel stove and made some ho-made chicken soup for me. He is just TOO GOOD to me. It worked such miracles that I made more of it yesterday. Somehow it doesn't taste as good as his though.
Before I sign off here I want to tell you about this wonderful soap I found while in Malvern, PA in August/September. There was a farmers market just up the road on Thursdays in a parking lot. It was just a little thing but I found one stand that sold soaps and that's all. (They also make soaps just for your pets). They get alot of rave reviews for this stuff because it's supposed to help with various skin problems. Well I don't want to this to turn in to a commercial or anything so I'll just tell you I absolutely love the stuff. I buy the Vanilla Sandalwood scent because I'm all about anything "VANILLA".
It's a small family owned sort of thing and if you want any more information about them I can give it to you.
Well I think it's time for another dose of Emergen-C so I better get to it. I decided I was getting too much exercise earlier today and brought the box of tissues over to where I was sitting. I have since added another box to my shopping list. Those hotel tissues HURT after a while!
Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to visit with me. It gets lonely in the hotel room all day by myself but that will soon change. Monday will come too soon but hopefully I will be over this rotten New Jersey cold by then!
Your comments brighten my day!!
