OK, now you don't have to hear anymore about my retirement countdown, lol. It's here, and I think it will take me a while to feel retired. But I'm happy to say I have placed my last IV and inserted my last PICC line, and I am VERY happy. Nuff said.
My friend at work, Hazel, made me a beautiful quilt as a retirement gift from my co-workers. She did a great job and I will treasure it always.
I think this is the first fully finished quilt I have ever received as a gift. Awesome.
I'm pretty much ready for Christmas, at least giftwise. Well, except for the $5.00 gift I have to find for Dave. We each bought what we wanted, so we decided to get each other something with a max of 5 bucks. Do you know how hard this is???? It's easy for him to buy for me, thread, a couple fat quarters etc. But what do I get him?? I'm thinking one of those little gadgets that you use to open those steel ( I swear!!) constructed bubble packages might be nice. So, I will probably go to one of the big Hardware stores to find him something. (OH!!! OH!!! I found out yesterday that we have a Harbor Freight here in Asheville so I can buy my rotary cutter blades locally!!)
And since I don't work anymore, I have to do my walking alone on the weekends. So today I will go walk my 2 miles around Beaver Dam Lake, than go find Dave his gift.
I made another Patchabilities wallhanging. These are so cute and FAST!!
Hope everyone is keeping sane during the holidays. I'm trying, lol.
