Hello people. Labor Day. The holiday that I associate with summer's end. I will be sticking around the house whining. Hoping you will be participating in whatever you choose for the day.
I am drug sensitive. Doctors don't believe me and think it's a fallacy. I knew the loss of balance with dizziness was coming on so I took less than one half of a 25 mg. Meclizine (Antivert). I can not function, wake up, concentrate and this is day two. Normally I am groggy for a day and get over it but the last two times have had prolonged effects. When I had a biopsy that took 20 minutes, I was out for hours after the "conscious sedation". One OTC Benadryl tablet knocks me out too. Two days of antibiotics and I am doing the seated cha-cha (yeast infection). I think they better start believing me!
Progress is still slow on Sally's house and honestly, I have not been in the mood to stitch for some time now. I am moving forward, but I am losing interest. So why the hell am I still seeing charts and wanting to purchase them? I made an error on the lower windows and front door because I was not paying attention to the chart. Once I get the pattern in my head, I assume the rest is the same but this is so not true in reproductions. The windows flanking the front door are to be one stitch narrower than the rest and I failed to check that, so instead, mine are the full width of the others. Instead of removing those stitches, I took two stitches from the door's width to keep the design around it the same as the chart. This messed up the over 4 rice stitch at the entrance (green) so I only did rice at the edges. I also thought the X's (to signify rice) meant to use the color assigned to that symbol (DMC 3371) and had to remove it all.
I have another kitcheny thing to show you. When we had the standard sink base we had the tip-out trays behind the false fronts at the top. Since we no longer have that style, we installed the thin, removable and washable trays inside the doors. Very handy and thin enough to not interfere with the doors. They are low cut and don't hold a lot, but having the brushes and scrubbies handy is nice.
And in all the years of gardens, we have never had the fawns eat the large zucchini leaves and also the zucchini themselves. So surprised to find them inside the fence since the rest of the garden was terminated by them months ago. The plants covered this area and we had three zukes left before this.
That's it folks. Hope you're enjoying the long weekend.
Thanks for visiting.
