My sister is recovering! If you've not been reading my blog long, you may not know that my sister has been close to death pretty often over the last 5 years. This time I really thought she might not make it – but she's better! Medically, the IV antibiotics and good care are what did the trick. Spiritually, I can't help but think all the prayers had something to do with it. Thanks to all of you who did that part :-).
In other news – I did buy a robot clock. He can hang or lean against something. He is a 'he', isn't he?
I left behind these two:
Here's the thing… I am feeling the urge to make clocks similar to these. Different, maybe better (or worse). I need tins or small cans that are painted – not the ones with paper on them. I've talked to Steve (because he does our grocery shopping) to ask that when he's buying something, buy the cute thing if possible. Even jar lids are useful. Altoids tins, wasabi cans, that sort of thing. So, if any of you find yourselves about to throw out a cute thing like that perhaps you can set it aside. Maybe there is a cheap and easy way to send them to me – or better yet, you can make a robot clock of your own!
The other thing I wanted to show you was this:
While in Berkeley, I got to shop for produce at the Berkeley Bowl. Boy, does our produce in Sherman look weak now. Anyway, I bought the cutest little pink apples. I didn't bite into one until I was at the airport to fly home and I about dropped the thing when I realized this is what I was eating. It tasted just like an apple, maybe a bit more tart. But it was sort of creepy.
FYI – the apple is sitting on a scarf that I bought when shopping with Lynn, my editor. She is as dangerous to shop with as I am – she helped me see how much I 'needed' this scarf. I'm glad she did.
I'm having my tear duct opened again on Tuesday. I hope to be able to post all week but it will depend on what's up with Christy and my eye. And, for those of you who have read all the way to here, I want to give you a heads up – we're going to have a sale on our website in about a week. I think you are going to enjoy it 🙂
