Purple Pants

meets Golden Boy.

We went shopping again for Carole this morning.  Chris has worked two double shifts in a row but still went to get a few things for her including electrolyte Gatorade, but she is nauseated and dehydrated, not feeling like eating.  So I got Cozy Shack tapioca, rice pudding (OMG), fruit cups, ricotta, whole grain bread and crab cakes.  All very low or no sodium.  She loves mangoes and the diced canned were 0 which surprised me, and easier to have a little at a time than peeling and dicing fresh.  She isn't going back to the doc until Wednesday and even though taking a very lose dose of booster diuretic, it is making her very weak.  Cardiologist is June 6 and I am anxious to speak with him about trying Entresto for her CHF. 
Hope your weekend is going well as we remember and honor those who sacrificed.

Marly, I like following your posts; and I am going to start up blogging again myself. Did you know that since I started wrapping my skeins on bobbins and putting them in floss boxes, almost thirty years ago, DMC has actually changed their dye-lots two or three times? I know they did for a lot of the reds and greys. When I re-did my boxes, about 6 years ago, putting two of each color in my inventory, I could really see the difference under my ott lite. So, I did throw out some, and re-wrapped newer skeins. Walmart did away with their huge craft dept. here in Brunswick quite a few years back; and put their DMC at .10-.25 cents each. I loaded up on new skeins, re-inventoried, but, I doubt I will ever do that again in my stitching life-time. Right now, I am 'stitching from stash', as much as possible. I know in the past two years, I did get all the embellishments for a couple of projects such as 'The Queen of Freedom' and 'Celtic Noel'. I also like Stoney Creek's 'Patterns of the Month' and have all the buttons, threads and embellishments for a series that is a Christmas banner. Let's see, not until I returned to Facebook a few years back, I found 'Rosewood Manor' and Karen Kluba. Recently, a dear stitching friend of mine, Brandy, gave me a gift certificate for .123; and I purchased all of the weeks dye works floss, about 9 skeins of one color and 4 of another to do 'China Blue'. I was also able to get the fabric (jobelan 28ct). The other chart, fabric and thread for 'Old Glory' I purchased now almost a year and a half ago. Health issues have forced me to slow down on my stitching; and this year I started Super Heroes quilt blocks on 10x10in white aida for South Dakota Binky Patrol. There are about a dozen patterns in which I have already, since starting in January 2019, stitched Batman Profile, Robin and finished Harley 'Quinn yesterday. It is such a joy to share with you. I keep you in my prayers since I found your blog several years ago. I just really hadn't posted, but love your pears and hope to do those soon. hugs, queeny

Canned, diced mangos!? I need to look for those for myself next time i'm in a larger store.
Regarding the new DMC - I can stop by the shop near work Tuesday and pick them up and get them in the mail to you, if you'd like... At least last time I was there, they had them, it's been a couple of months.

I hope your TLC kicks in and Carole starts feeling better fast.
