I’m still on my pincushion kick, but I’ve decided I don’t have to make one-a-day. I’ve been to all the craft stores around here looking for some dusty rose colored felt and do you think I can find any? Hate it when a company discontinues making something like that. I did find some really nice tan felt that will become my next favorite color.
The other day I got a craving for bran muffins. I know that sounds strange, but I just wanted that taste. This morning I made a batch from this recipe and I’ve gotta say, they’re really, really good! It makes a huge batch, so I froze half of them for whenI have another bran muffin craving. I’ve had other urges to bake, but restrained myself, because if I bake it, I also eat it and that’s not a good thing.
Jim’s been nursing a sore knee. In fact it was so bad he went to see his doctor last week. He had x-rays, an MRI and now he’s supposed to see an Ortho specialist on Wednesday. With all the snow that’s coming, I’ve got a feeling that appointment will be rescheduled. At least it’s not getting worse. Today he doesn’t have hardly any pain, but it doesn’t take much for it to flare up again.
So with his bad knee, it’s put a damper on taking our little trips and getting out and about. We did take another trip back to the Amish store. There’s something about that place that I really like and apparently I’m not the only one. We were there last Saturday and the place was packed with shoppers. Only one buggy in the parking lot though. The Amish must do their shopping during the week.
Our computer was making lots of noise so I took it in last week. I really think the PC guy goofed up when he figured my bill. He replaced the noisy fan, the USB ports on the front, added new software so the DVD player worked and did a few other things. There’s a minimum charge of $40 to look at it and my whole bill was only $55. I didn’t want to question the man, so I just paid and took my quiet PC back home.
About the only wildlife we’ve seen around this neck of the woods are turkeys. Wow, there’s really a lot of turkeys now. This gang was walking on the road as we approached. They just walked to the top of the hill and finally took a left and headed into the pines, but they were in no hurry.Not much else going on in my little world. It’s just one day at a time, looking forward to seeing the Packers and Steelers in the Super Bowl and trying to ignore winter, which is getting harder and harder to do.
