What can I say ...

We are here at the end of the earth once again.  Unremarkable trip. Just the usual 5 1/2 hours.  Idiot neighbor has added yet another "private" sign.  That makes four signs he has posted.  What a dweeb.

Today we ventured into the thriving metropolis of Mason.   Since it was Tuesday, many of the shops and restaurants were closed.  But we managed to gather items (and spend money) to bring back to the wilderness.

I really NEED to be working on the embroidery things I want for the craft show on the 7th, but I didn't bring my machine.  Just as well - the main road into this place (which is rock/dirt) is literally a washboard.  You can see the lines across it.  To stay on the road, you have to travel at less than 15, and your teeth are still rattled out of your head.  Wouldn't do my computerized sewing/embroider machine any good at all.

Before we left, my DIL saw a pattern for little microwave bowls, and she told me Brian would really like some of those.  Well - ok.  So I bought the pattern, downloaded it, and while in the thriving metropolis, I bought wool batting (at a fortune), cotton fabric and cotton thread.  I have my old (and I do mean old) machine around here so I can make those while I am here.  I might even try to make extras to put in the show.

Of course, I couldn't find my shopping list when I got to the grocery store.  That was really ok because I will go into Fredericksburg on Sunday and visit the good store for Thanksgiving necessities.  I remembered almost all of the list, but I was so irritated with myself.  The list was here on the floor when I fot back

I have had another fungal bloom in my ear which means it is full of fluid again.  That means I can't hear out of that ear.  I hate my ears. And I am sure that was far TMI for everyone!

And once again, there are thing going on here that I am not sure of - at least the keys are putting out the proper letters. I promise the end of the last post was what was coming from the computer, not my fingers. I type poorly, but not quite that bad. Seems like it is nap time around these parts anyway!

Okay, now you've got me curious about microwave bowls. I hope your ear issues clear up; just got over an infection myself, not fun.

You're in Fredericksburg in Va? I have a long time friend who has all of her children and grands there. She lives in Myrtle Beach, but makes the trip often.

Have a good nap. :)

I'm curious about the microwave bowls too. Hate to hear that your ear is bothering you. I keep getting a twinge in my ear that I think may be an ear infection starting, but then it goes away for awhile. Hope yours goes away too.
