Hi Friends! Long time, no blogging! The kids have been sick again....boo hiss! But the upside is this: Ean started poking in his ears last Friday evening. I took him to the on-call pediatrician the next morning and he said Ean had a double ear infection. But I so did not want to give him antibiotics. This is the first ear infection my littles have ever had...crazy, I know! Anyway, I did some research and decided to try a home remedy first. So I made up some garlic-mullein oil and started putting that in his ears twice daily. He immediately acted like he felt better. So I kept it up. On Monday I took Ean to see our normal pediatrician....whom I really like! He said Ean did have an ear infection but that it was getting better!!! Yeah!!! He said to keep up the oil and not to worry about any antibiotics! I love when I can find alternatives to standard medicines.
Before the kids came down with this cold, I was working on this sweet tatted edging. I taught myself to tat when I was about 11 years old. I had been wanting to pick it up again but just haven't taken the time. But when we evacuated our home because of the tornado aftermath, I went to a needlework shop in TN and picked up a new shuttle. It is so relaxing to tat and I am really enjoying it again. I have a little bag in my purse and whenever I have a few minutes I pull it out and tat a ring or two. I am hoping to put this edging on a wee care gown once it is finished.
In other thoughts, we are going to be under tornado warnings again tonight and tomorrow. Please pray for all the people that have been affected the past month, and are still being affected by these deadly tornadoes. I have read some blogs where people are almost kidding about the tornadoes. Trust me, if they could only see the destruction left behind they would not be kidding about anything tornado related. It is going to take some people, and towns years to recover. The roads in our neighborhood are still piled high with debris, and that is only from trees and fences. However, within about a 15 minute drive, some entire neighborhoods are gone. Gone. I am trying not to take anything for granted these days. And I am thankful for your time and the fact that you stopped by for a visit...thank you! I hope you have a great weekend and you are able to fit a little stitching in! I hope to get some pictures soon so I can show you several things I have finished recently!
