Sometimes you have to have a bad day to appreciate the good. I went to the dentist on Monday to get a crown put on a tooth. It’s something that had been needing to get done and I finally ‘bit the bullet’ and did it. When they started drilling, it turned out I needed a root canal--- or lose the tooth. So, I got it done and went back to work. Heck, it was numb so no big deal. I woke up Monday night with fever. I don’t know if the two were related, but I did the ‘Advil Thing’ and went on to work. The dentist got me some antibiotics. Other than that weak feeling you get after fever I felt pretty good the rest of the day.

I went home and knocked out the chores and started supper. The project for the evening was below.
My Sunday school kids are making snowmen this week so I got all of the pieces together. They’ll have hearts instead of stars in their Hands for Valentine’s Day. They’re made out of mittens. I’ve been collecting mittens from the Goodwill store for over a year. With 19 kids in class I need ten pairs. I even kicked around buying them and you just can’t find mittens anywhere in the stores. I think these guys are real cute. They’re filled with popcorn. Anyone wants the instructions just email me. I like the way the mitten ’thumb’ becomes the snowman’s arm. There’s nothing like seeing that 4 year old handing their Mom a gift after class….

I’m still hand-quilting my Mom’s gift. I’m really cutting it down to the wire, but we’ll get it completed yet. It’s warmed up a little (ha!ha!) It was 5 below this morning.

Gratitudes:
1. A Pellet Stove keeping us warm at night.
2. The Half moon lighting my way to work.
3. Don – he turns 45 today.

Too Cute! Too Cute! Too Cute!

I had a dentist appt yesterday for a filling I thought was under my crown - turned out it was the tooth next to it! So my appt went much better than I was fretting about! So much for ignorance is bliss!

Those snowmen are the cutest ever...your Sunday school kids sure are lucky to have you...they probably never want to move up to the next class. I hate going to the dentist...I'm sending good thoughts.
