From A Mother To Her Family And A Few Other Thoughts

Well Mother's Day has come and gone... as it does each and every year. It's always so fun, sweet and nice to have you all right here. Us Mother's do appreciate all the wonderful things you say.... and mostly we just like it when you spend the time of day! All the jewels, flowers, cards and such, just can't really compare with knowing that you are/were in touch.... because it shows you care! Thank you so much for all your love and all the things you do.... From this Mother of 4 and a Wife of 1, and a Grandmother of 3. You made me feel especially nice, as nice as nice can be! Love You All.

Thanks For Making My Day Sweet!

O.K. here I am crying and it's the day after Mother's Day! I do that enough on Mothers day... due to overloaded sweet sentiments at Church and such...

I hope that all you new/or not so new Mother's had a wonderful day also!

So this past week has been a good time! The medicine the dr. put me on.... the antibiotic.... let me tell you.... fun..... not so much!!! 2 days after I had started taking it I called the pharmacist and told him that I was getting this terrible.... and I DO MEAN TERRIBLE... METAL TASTE, IN MY MOUTH (hmmm, where else would I get it.... oh well) along all of my taste buds! You have to know this guy... our Pharmacist.... his name is Von. He says to me... does it taste like your sucking a nickel? I said, yeah! He kinda laughs and says... yep... that will happen! I asked him what I could do about it, cause they are time release pills. I had to take 2 huge horse pills (it just seemed that way to me, cause they were wayyyy big) once each morning for 10 days! Yuck! Anyway... he said, just get yourself some hard candies.... and I'm thinking... dr's. orders! Root Beer Barrels to the rescue!!!!! So, each time I started getting that terrible taste I would just take a R. B. B..... and it did really help.... Only problem was I was getting it all the time, so I was sucking them all the time..... big sigh.... no weight loss! THIS IS MY OFFICIAL LOSER MONDAY REPORT....... Such is Life! But for those of you kind people who has asked.... yes, thank you I am feeling better. I would not have let the family over if I hadn't been!

Oh, and for those of you interested... Who were with this blog last Fall..... when my DD and her hubby got custody of the two sweet little ones..... it's all done and Legal! As of last week! And next month, they will take them through the Temple to be sealed. The kids have grown a lot... so cute to see them all together. And of course the rest of the family is having fun with them too!

Nothing like getting your family in leaps and bounds....

So today I finally get to cutting out the dress that I will be making for my little granddaughter or DGD as she will here to fore be known.

It's Butterick 3762. You can go here... if you want to see it~ Basically it's view D... with a few changes.

#1 Change is there will be no collar... DD has an aversion for kiddy type collars.... go figure!

#2 Change is that there will be pleats of the horizontal direction towards the hem. One will be around 1 1/2 inches and the next will be around 3 inches. This will give it some more detail...

The fabric is White Silk Dupioni. Since GD is now walking, it will be a nice long length. And hopefully not too long to trip her up!

I will be taking pictures so you can see what I'm up too... for those of you who may not care... well, I suppose you can just skip this sewing adventure or my blog totally.... I leave that up to your discretion. Stay tuned to this blog.... you never know what I may come up with!

A medical practitioner telling you to eat lollies! This means they must be good for you (that's my story and I'm sticking to it). I'm looking forward to seeing the little dress come to life and seeing it on your now official granddaughter - that was great timing to have it done just before mothers day

Hi Jean, looks like a very happy family. I hope you kick the bronchitis quickly. Can't imagine having a metal taste in my mouth. Yuck. Now just don't get the dentist upset with you! Or tell him/her the doctor made you do it. :-)
