Hello friends, and new visitors! This has been an interesting week so far!
Tuesday was Mattie and I’d 6th anniversary. We didn’t go out, but he cooked me dinner, and brought wine and dessert. He grilled steaks and pork, and we also had beans, red wine, and a cheesecake pie from Marie Callender’s for dessert. It was so good and we both ate probably way too much. The cheesecake pie only lasted a few days- it was so good and I love their sour cream topping they put on it.
Wednesday my mom picked me up and we went to Costco and I got dog food, a flat of water, a half a ham, and 4 pounds of low sodium bacon.I like bacon but I tend to not eat it much because I don’t like the saltiness, so hoping this will make me love it again. Mattie had pool league that night without me and he shot pretty well.
Thursday morning I woke up at 4 am with a painful, throbbing tooth. I went to the dentist at 1130am, and came home at about 2pm with a freshly done root canal. They briefly explained what a root canal was, and then I pulled up this video on YouTube to watch the whole proceedure so I could better understand it.
By watching the whole thing first, I was able to understand exactly what was going to happen and how it would be done, and since I could see my dentist pick up each new tool as he worked, I had a good idea of what part of the procedure he was at. I got my temporary crown put on and in two weeks I go back in for my permanent crown and a deep cleaning. I wanted to do the cleaning the same day but he didn’t have time.
Tomorrow we’ll take Mattie’s dad shopping and to run errands and get dinner, and then we’ll be heading out to Tracy and David’s afterwards. I’l looking forward to it.
I’ve been doing a lot of crafting lately too, and I unfortunately had to turn down what would have been a beautiful project when completed but I just couldn’t commit the level of time and attention it would need thru the time period it would take to complete it. One of the little things I did was pour a new switch plate for my craft room out of resin. I mixed some mica powders into it, a first for me, and it turned out so pretty! Way cooler than a plain creamy plasticy of white! Please ignore the dirty switch. I’ll have to address that some other day.
The mica powder, which mixed in, settled and swirled in an interesting way but I’m sure there are other ways to make a smother coloring throughout.
