I had planned to write another pantry post yesterday but... life happened. :)
Sasha has stopped eating and drinking. She has lost a lot of weight these past few weeks and we knew things did not look good. We're giving her a lot of love and shedding tears as we know a visit to her vet will soon be necessary if she doesn't begin to eat and drink soon...
We were out early yesterday morning to buy new tires for the Buick. We knew we had to replace two tires before taking the trip to New England but they found a nail in one of our "good" tires. Now we know why it had a very slow leak. Sigh... we had them patch it and it will become our spare.
We had an hour between finishing at the tire shop and my doctor's appointment so we stopped by the Mission Thrift Store. I found the cutest tea cozy for a quarter. It may have been donated by the same person who gave the pretty brocade looking cozy I found last week for a dollar. I'll take a picture of it soon. It's crocheted in the form of a teapot and so much... fun.
I love getting inspiration from "decorating" blogs... or at least blogs who feature decorating and entertaining. Lately I'm getting a lot of inspiration from Daisy Cottage. I've long enjoyed that blog but it is bringing out my love for color... perhaps also an influence from reading The Gentle Art of Domesticity... both inspiring my 25 cent tea cozy purchase. :)
I saw my new doctor at the clinic yesterday. He's an older African American gentleman and just so nice and understanding, he also knows a lot about Type 1 diabetes (an answer to prayer!). He believes I need to begin taking far more insulin than I have been so we will see how that helps. :)
Today I'm driving my husband to the Veteran's Hospital in Danville (Illinois). He cannot drive himself since he will have a test that requires a mild anesthetic. Which takes me back to the beginning of this post... and why we had to put new tires on the car... another sigh.
By the way, I am SO far behind in answering e-mails that require more than a yes or no answer. All of a sudden, life became busy at the same time the garden needed as much attention as a new baby. Very soon I'll be able to write more.
I'll continue the pantry posts tomorrow.
