I have been on bedrest

Oh I know it's only July, but I am getting antsy already about Christmas. I know Halloween comes first and I do plan on doing a little bit of decorating, but come Halloween night, I will pack up Halloween and start pulling out Christmas. I don't really decorate for Thanksgiving, because I give thanks each and every day, the Good Lord gives me.

I have been on bed rest. I'll be having an EKG to see if I had angina or a small little tic. I had to take 2 nitros and prayed that the 3rd would not have to be taken, because that ER time and I did not want to go to the hospital. Luckily, the vise grip, that's what it felt like, went away. I know it wasn't a panic attack because I was sleeping peacefully with good dreams and awoke to what felt like someone sitting on my chest and having a vise grip that kept tightening. So I have not gotten ready for Connie's first Friday FruFru Day, but will be there next week. I already have something in mind to frufru up, so hoping my plans go as planned.

I have been visiting blogs that I haven't been to in a while and it was great seeing all the nice work and thrift buys everyone has been doing and finding. I did find something very useful at Goodwill to be used in my shop, but I don't have my camera with me, so it will have to wait. I hope you are not getting soaked like we are. It has slowed down clearing the space for my new storage/closet/sitting room for now. Trees have been dug up, vines cut back to dig up and now are all in pots waiting to be transplanted to another location. Now onto the sod that has to come up for the footings for the room. I am rather excited to see things moving along and Al said it would probably only take him 3 days to frame it up, then the riping or should I say cutting out walls in my bedroom that will lead into the room. We have solid walls and not one piece of sheet rock in our house, so it's pretty sturdy and has with stood 3 bad hurricanes.

Well going watch the news, then maybe redo my address book. It's looking pretty shabby these days, so I bought a new one, which will probably be recovered to fit my fancy. Have a great day. Love and hugs, Pat

Hey Pat,
Hope your feeling better! I am doing well myself...thankfully!!!
God does answer prayer..and I am an example of that.
I think I am going to head out today and go to the bookstore and get a few things to read.
We haven't gotten much rain at all over here in Baton Rouge...hopefully we will. My sweet grass and flowers and vegetable garden are burning up! UGH!

Joyce, we are so sick of rain that I would trade letting my plants die than drowning them to death. It has rained nearly every day for 2 weeks. Yesterday was really bad and the day before our light almost went out with the lightening storm we had. Glad you are feeling better. Hugs, Pat
