March 19,2010 What a day!!!

Thursday started out just like any other day , wake up at 5:00 am , get DH going set out clothes, get pills out. Then pass out til 7:00AM. get Mary going. Thursday didn't go quite like this. Sure 5:00am came got DH and off to work. Snuggled back in and the phone rang, hmmm what did DH forget?answered the phone, Hubby says bring my long distance glasses and the wrap-arounds, I broke my sun glasses. I am going to go look at a new factory site . I said i get there as soon as I could. Got up and got dressed. Got the glasses, and headed out to the van, as I am getting in the van , who should pull in but DH . He says get in the car. OK, I get in ,he hands me a french vanilla coffee and says "this your day, we are going to yarn shops" I am stunned , speechless , somewhat.So we started in Cross Plain, the store front is empty. Move on to Mt.Horeb, the Cat and Crow, it's early we go and have breakfast, Oh mustn't forget this DH gave $100.00 to purchase things with. WOW. back to the Cat and Crow, the note on the door it's lambing time and hours would be sporadic . Then he says we are going to see my sister in Belmont, Hurrah, we go and have a nice chat leave about 11:00AM, head for Fennimore the store is a house front, I am a little nervous going in so we go get some lunch at Hardee's, After lunch we head for Bosobel and stop in a couple of stores, one High priced gift store, put my hands in my pockets, so I wouldn't bump in to things. Then we are off to Viroqua, Ewe Topia, it's a long time and its after 2 in the afternoon, we have been on the road since 5:30am. Back to the store, lovely hand spun yarn, hand dyed , alpaca, merino and leicaster sheep to name a few , hand looms and spinning wheels. I could spent all day in this shop, Viroqua is really a neat litle city as is Mt. Horeh.
Now we decided tp head back toward home and stop in Mt. Horeb to see the Cat and the Crow long trip , we arrive in Mt. Horeb about 4:30 , looked at the door new note , closed for teacher conferencces, Well Mt. Horeb is not to far from home will be back. We head on home, run into three of those round abouts in Mt Horeb on the way home, nasty things. We get home about 5:30pm. What a day , yes I bought yarn and needles at Ewe Topia can't wait to go back. Thank you Hubby, you are the best, I love you, thanks for spoiling me.

Ouch the 16 of March

Late last night full blown migraine arrived .Sick to the stomach ,head pounding,light and sound sensitive.complete with aura, you don't want to know how many times I've had to stop and correct the Spelling .Asked DH to take the van today as I am no shape to drive.Can't seem to walk straight line either, would not make a pretty picture. Have a load of dishes going also one of wash.
DH called and the dentist wanted to move appointment to this morning. Hurts to bad, my head feels like it could explode. I don't think he is too happy with me. I do plan on going to work this evening. I am so tired. Naptime again. Talk to you later

Monday morning blues

Ah, the sun is shining, the temp is hovering in the upper 50's how long can this last. It's march and the state basketball tournament is this weekend . Which usually means storms either rain or snow.
Migraine symptoms are emerging, right hand is starting to go numb. Well can't have all good days can we.went to the resale shop and picked up a larger George Foreman style grill. for $5.98 plus tax. Worked well on DH 's lunch today.Faster,well the dishes are calling and then some knitting for Mary.
Oh yes I see the Yarn Harlot is watching a humming birds eggs hatching here on the good old internet.Her youngest DD had her wisdom teeth out , poor baby! They hurt.(wincing in pain remembering my own experience)have visit the dd this week myself, in this case dd stands for deadly dentist. If we are to have any forks for use at the dinner meal I better get at them.
Talk to you later

March , the greening of the midwest

March already, the snow is melting and we are seeing spikes of green poking up from the ground.The trees are budding , it's a good sign that spring is finally here.So what does that mean, no more dark and gloomy days, not quite, but it means an end to the SAD episode that has been haunting me. I crave sunlight, I know by the end of summer I'll say it's my worst enemy.Headaches an all.
Not much knitting accomplished, this winter, Well we will see what can be done about that. This weekend is the Knit -in Madison, The gals from Mason-Dixon knitting will be there. Don't know if I'll be going .I am not a member of the Madison Knitting guild yet. They have only a couple of months before they go dark till September. The Yarn Harlot will be speaking in Detroit this weekend. I am afraid that I'll miss them both.So what else is new. The yarn Harlot is a given , but I might be able to to see the Mason-Dixon Gals and Franklin Habit, I wonder if he will have Delores with him or not. I see most of the classes are sold out , but I may be able to go to the vendors and have look see.
Things are not as bleak as the seemed early this year. I am looking forward to warm and sunny days ahead, Filled with dog walks and lawn clean-ups. Perhaps getting some flowers planted this spring .Maybe also some pictures on this blog to show how things are coming along.Who knows.
I will tell you this after being on a certain medication for 6 years ,it feels good to be off of it. Painkillers aren't all they crack up to be, it certainly isn't a solution for anything permanent. Okay enough of that. Hopefully I will be posting more regularly. Hey Glenn Beck is on! Talk to you later.
