Thanks to all who voiced sympathy over the toothache. It got worse each day last week until I finally had to take pain killer pills, which took the pain away, but made me very sleepy.
I pretty much went to work, came home and slept. It was actually bad enough to warrant a sick day or two for any normal person, but where I work we do not take sick days unless we have one foot in the coffin. Three years ago I missed two days due to illness. That's about it for the past five years.
Actually it was a good thing I went to work because that is where I got the pain pills. Yes, someone else's prescription, but I was desperate.
In my medicine cabinet there is nothing but nail polish.
DH and I have been very fortunate in that we have been healthy and take no medications.
The toothache is still with me, though not as intense as it was (I have not had to take any of the pills in two days). I will find out more Tuesday when I see the dentist.
In the meantime, life goes on.
This is the second weekend that I have stayed home the full two days. I have not really accomplished much...very little cleaning (even though there is plenty of it to do). I did work on my denim quilt and am happy to report that it is done. I finished binding it today.
I chose a striped denim fabric to make the binding and I think it turned out to be a nice choice...gives it just a little zip.
I was inspired to update the cobalt blue dining table today when I received this very bright bouquet of flowers.
I would have never considered cobalt blue, orange, and lime green. But when I plopped the flowers onto the table, I thought it must be an interesting twist to the table.
So I spent just a little time digging through my stuff to find green and orange things to use on the table. This is what I came up with (did not have bright orange, so I had to settle for rusty orange).
I used these wooden watering cans to hold the napkins
It was fun to do and something different to look at until the flowers die.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
