Bits of house...

I have got a few bits to show you...

Firstly, I found these plates at a local thrift store. I wanted to decorate in my 
dining room with the color yellow, so these fit the bill nicely.

The problem...
I had no way to hang them.
Then I saw something on Pinterest :o)

What clever idea! Paperclips, fabric and hot glue!

It worked very nicely. 
But of course I didn't make it without burning my thumb!

More next time :o)

I've been away...for awhile...
Yes, and now I've returned. The reason???
We moved. It was a large move, not just my husband and I, but his mom, and niece.
So, once we moved everyone, we had to move our storage. Then we had to clean the new house. It is a rental that had been left...for years...years of dust, bugs, dead mice, you get my drift.

I'll post some pics soon, it's coming together. And I'm so happy.

New medicine...

So for awhile I've had various things going on. Facial hair, not just a mustache but a beard and soul patch. I talked to my gyno and said I thought I was ready to start a new medicine, she did tests and said "no, you're not."

I went on my way for another few years, more hair, hot flashes, night sweats the gammut.

Then more recently new symptoms...

For no reason, crying. Crying in the car, crying in the tub, crying in church. Everyone asking "are you ok?" Then flashes of rage, anger so intense I could kill something. When I had a calm moment and looked back over it all, I didn't recognize myself anymore.

Seriously, I was just a different person.

I couldn't even talk about it. I would just start crying. What a nightmare.

My mum told me she recognized the symptoms and it was time for a visit with the doctor again.

So this week my doctor and I had a long talk. The decision was made to try a low dose hormone and see how I do.

All I have to say about that is, I sure hope it changes things and hopefully for the better.

Pretty high hopes for such a small pill don't ya think?

My first post and my favorite things...

Today I created my first blog. I've been reading blogs for awhile and have wanted to give it a try.
What I want to achieve with my blog, is to share some of my favorite things and also connect with some new friends.

So first, I will share some of my favorite things...
First my hot water pot. I love it because it makes hot water for tea and does it really quick.
Second, my little teacup. My friend Patti gave it to me for my birthday. I love it because it has a lid and I can steep my tea. I have several mugs that have lids, and I have used those too, but this little cup is just the right size for a spot of tea.

Then last, my newest display. During Christmas break I spent a week with my Mum in Oklahoma. We spent the whole week going from thrift store to antique shop and I found my cross in one of them. The frame, was a gift from my maternal grandmother years ago. I've carefully packed and moved it many times not knowing how I would ever use it. Now it has a home.

Well there you go, my first blog entry. I hope you have enjoyed my little favorite things. Hopefully I will find other things to write about, and hopefully I'll get better at it.

Tabby :o)
