Keep Me Posted 7-16-19

Here’s what you missed last week from my small corner of the crochet world…

The Latest…

This past week was spent in appointments. A doctor appointment, a mammogram, getting an ultra-sound done, and getting blood work. The blood pressure problem I mentioned last week; at it’s highest was 198. Yeah, not good. The doctor is confused over why it shot up almost 60 points from just four months earlier. The ideas he put forth don’t sound good and test results are needed to make a diagnosis.

And now as I write this post for publishing this coming Tuesday, we are preparing for an emergency trip. Hubby’s mom might not last through the weekend as she’s now on an IV drip and receiving morphine for the cancer. This may be the last time we see her. It’s with a sad note we say good bye but knew this day was coming. But it never prepares you for it when it does arrive.

This Week’s Menu Plans:

If you’ve followed the blog much, you’ll notice I publish my upcoming menu plans for each week. Why? Actually this is to keep me on the up and up. I tend to get busy and before I know it, I’m out of steam and if I don’t have something planned, it’s the same old question that plagues many households at around 6:00 in the evening with; “What’s for dinner?” “I don’t know, what sounds good…” until eventually you’re ordering pizza or running through the drive thru at McD’s. Here are my menu plans:

I actually won’t be posting a menu plan this week simply because we’re not sure what this coming week will bring. But I did post a devotional about “The Waiting Room” if you’d like to read it.

Crushing on Amazon

Who doesn’t love to shop? And who doesn’t love to save money. I’ve found that often when comparison shopping, Amazon has the best price and being a Prime member, means no shipping charges. These are what I’m looking at now…

Marley sheds, and sheds, and sheds. Seriously, he sheds more fur than two of our cavalier spaniels did with their long fur. Maybe it’s because he has short hair, but I need help and this looks like it just might be what I need. What do you think?

Tuesday’s Trivia!

Many people start out crocheting this “relatively” easy pattern.

New Patterns!

I’m always working on new patterns. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been working on a new purse. If you like post stitches and like color changes, you’ll love this new purse! Want this patterns available on Etsy – just ask!

Country Fans Kitchen Collection

While the patterns in this collection were designed a few years back, I sold each one separately. Later I sold partial sets but now have combined them into one set that includes the dish soap apron, plant pot cover, broom cover, and utensil holder. Each is designed with a fun fan stitch that makes such a pretty pattern repeat! Create a Country Fans Kitchen Set for your kitchen!

I have this wonderful appliance for making jellies and preserves. I’m thinking of pulling it out to make fresh strawberry jam – it’s so easy and the results are wonderful. If you have some preserves you want to put up this summer, this might be something you’re interested in too!
