On Wednesday, I took the kids to the dentist for their checkup. I mentioned I had a tooth that was kind of sensitive, and they rushed me off for xrays and fillings. Three hours later, we left the dentist and half of my face was still numb. It was not the way I wanted to spend my afternoon.
Thursday my mouth was soooo sore and my sore throat started.
Friday I babysat for the Valentines Banquet from the church and finished my part of the calendar quilt (the trees and cabins).
Saturday a friend and I finished the missionary quilt that the ladies of our church had been making. When I got home, I made some pillowcases for my kids, the teddy bear and trucks are the new ones. I also finished the hand sewing on the quilt as you go quilt, and so that is Done, Done.
Today I stayed home and slept, taking Tylenol for the sore throat and drinking warm stuff. I sewed some on my 1000 Pyramids quilt (mostly piecing by hand).
I have enjoyed reading all the blogs while I have been sick and down in the mouth. :) Everyone posts such beautiful pictures.
Another thing I wanted to share. My daughter and I went for a walk on a warmer day (about 25 degrees) and we had the greatest time watching these little finch like birds eat the seeds from the pinecones. Then they would drop the pinecones from the trees. It was a special moment.
