May your Christmas day be blessed,
Louie and Michelle
Louie got a Blackberry Curve 8330 phone about 3 or 4 months ago. I really was not interested too much in getting a Blackberry at the time, but also, I was not eligible to move up to a different plan until November. With the recent headache of no internet and many computer problems, along with the fact that I just learned Blackberry had a flip phone, I was ready to get one. I was really not interested in the style of phone Louie had. I wanted a flip phone…something smaller and that could be protected from damage easier. When I found out Blackberry had a flip, I was ready.
Saturday, I made the move. I had spent some time on the internet looking at this phone, and got the Blackberry Pearl 8220 Flip Of course, I needed a case or skin or something to help protect it, so I got this pink gel skin. My first try at texting was frustrating, as the keypad has a couple of modes for texting and it was set in the more difficult mode, (for me anyway) but now I have it set to what is comfortable and easy for me, but I still have a LOT to learn.
To say I LIKE this phone would be an understatement, because I LOVE IT! I love it, because I KNOW when I have emails without going to the computer. That saves me a ton of time logging in to see I have no mail, or mail I really don’t want. I can delete them before I ever get them into my email inbox. I can actually sit down on my breaks at work instead of standing at the computer which is in my area. Yes, I have to stand at the computer, because I HAVE to know if any of you have emailed me! Then I have to check blogs. I CAN DO THAT TOO through this phone, and I can do it sitting down. Oh, phone, how I love thee! Other wonderful news is, Louie and I got the results today for the Life Line Screening we had done on December 3rd. Louie and I were both screened for Carotid Artery Disease—we both tested NORMAL, Atrial Fibrillation—NORMAL, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm—NORMAL, Peripheral Arterial Disease (6-lead EKG)—NORMAL, and I had a bone density test, and showed LOW RISK. Louie did not get results for bone density, as the machine could not get a reading on him. The techs who screened us said that sometimes it is difficult to get a reading on a man (not sure why, but that is what they said!).
Louie and I feel very fortunate and blessed that our results were so positive. The question of how healthy we were in these areas have been on our minds for a long time, and now we know. As recommended, we will share these results with our doctor.
I worked until noon today, came home, visited with Louie for about half an hour, then we went downstairs and set up my quilt frame before he went back to work. I had a quilt top of Louie’s sister’s that I wanted to quilt for her. I’m not sure when she made this quilt, but I think it was more than 20 years ago. As I quilted, I also worked on laundry.
After I finished the quilt, Louie called his sister, and she came over and picked it up. Louie helped me put the frame away, and vacuumed the floor while I put everything else away. While we were working, his sister visited with us. The quilt was nice and soft when finished, and I’ll bet Louie’s sister will sleep tight under this quilt. Quilts seem to do that, you know.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Tuesday night, when Louie went to play pool, I decided to tear into my office and do some rearranging. I cleaned out drawers, my closet from hell (sort of), and moved things around. I was unhappy with the storage drawers under my desk. They were handy, but unsightly, and I had no room to stretch my legs. When I started, I had a whole other plan, but this is what I ended up with, and I am happy with it.
Here is my office tour, starting with walking in the door, and going around the room right to left.
Nothing quilty to report. It’s Thursday, which means it’s usually the last day of the work week for me, but I will work til noon tomorrow. Today is our Christmas potluck at work, so I’ll be miserable this afternoon, but a happy miserable, I’m sure (Is that possible?)
Have a great day, and thanks for the visit.
Saturday was our December ‘Loose Tensions’ get together. In December, if the weather is good, we have a potluck and eat ourselves silly.
Kate treated everyone by bringing her computer and Cricut to make t-shirt transfers for us all. She designed our logo, and I think she did a wonderful job! Thank you Kate! Here is the logo she came up with, and how it looks, applied to a t-shirt. I love it! December’s Birthday girl was Margaret, so she had gifts to open. We all just worked on our own things today. It was very relaxing. We had lots to eat! We had our fat quarter exchange, and we had Christmas gifts to open! I made us all a tree ornament, and put a couple packets of hand needles inside the pocket. Here’s my pile of goodies! We had a couple of girls who couldn’t make it, but we hope they will be able to join us again next month.
Thanks for the visit. Have a wonderful week, and be blessed!
