It has been awhile since I have posted. I spent a week being ill and another week trying to find out why. But I am okay, no answers, just going to monitor if the symptoms return. No matter how hard you try to be positive you still worry. This time I think I worried more than I thought. I slept for two days after the last test. I didn't have an sedation or medication to make me sleepy. That is a lot of sleep for someone that has a hard time falling asleep.
I spent time reading posts but not always replying. I had two dogs sitting on me most of the time. We finally curbed the old recliner and got a new one. It is a chair and a half (room for dogs and grands) and it is electric. I am loving it. The dogs still try to claim my body for a dog bed but they are learning.
I should have taken this pictures earlier. We didn't get any rain for three weeks but finally got some this week-end. There was rain all around us. Thank God not the flooding in other areas. I hope all my Texas friends are okay.
It has been fun watching on the colors pop up in our flower bed. I am so not a gardener and this is really fun. Now you will see my empty wagon. I can't find my fairy garden things. My cute little house and camper and all the accessories are just missing. I will go ahead with the new things I got and the plants before they die. They will show up eventually.
I missed two sales that I look forward to (again) this week-end. But Sunday I got a text from someone I met on a Facebook Shirley Temple group. She asked if I was at the doll show in Columbus. I said that I thought it was only on Saturday. But it was yesterday too. So I jumped in the shower and drove the 30 minutes to get there. I only stayed an hour but made a couple purchases and saw not only the lady that texted me but some of my doll club members.
Here is my new Shirley. This is my first composition one. I never bought one before because of the price. This was one I could afford. I like that she is a little one. She does need a little TLC. I love Skippy and Patsy dolls. I also got a look alike Patsy type. They are unmarked and usually older than the others. I spotted her and just loved her eyes. The lady that sold her and I both thought what good shape she was in for being from the 1920's.
Doesn't she have pretty eyes. Well I learned one thing yesterday. When you go to these shows you need to bring your own totes and packaging. Because if you look at her left arm you will see that some of it is missing. This poor doll made it all those years without an injury and in my hands for 30 minutes and look what happened. The plastic grocery bag broke and she fell to the ground as I got into my car. Another little figurine broke as well. Thank good Shirley was on the top of the bag and she was okay. I will fix her arm and get her a long sleeve dress. She will stay with me.
Have you seen the video of the little girl that has an artificial leg, getting an American Girl doll that also has one. I know these dolls are so overpriced and made in China but they are special dolls. They will be the next collector items if they keep retiring ones and bring new ones back.
Well, you all doll lovers so I will stop for now.
Here's to a better week for us all.
