Busy Day Today

Final preparations for our Ladies' Meeting happened today.

Tim's fever is gone for the most part today.  He did not sleep well last night.  He was achy and just really didn't feel well.  I suggested he send an e-mail to the RN who assisted the doctor with the injections to tell her what was going on and to see if she thought it was the flu or the injections causing him to not feel well.  Also to ask her if it was the flu if he could take meds without interfering with the injections.  She told him she was sure it was the injections causing him to run fever and feel bad.  She instructed him to take Tylenol every 6 hours for a couple of days to see if that helps.

I didn't wait on her answer because I needed to go to the store to get some things for the meeting tonight.  So I picked up some Nyquil and Dayquil Severe Cold and Flu medicine while I was there, just in case.  I also got the refreshments for the meeting.  Tim laid down to rest while I went to the store.

When I got back Tim was still in bed, so I got the Fellowship Hall set up for the meeting.  I also shoveled a little bit of snow so that the parking lot would dry in the sun and not leave any wet spots to freeze causing dangerous spots for the ladies to have to walk on.

When I got back in the house I had to do a little bit of sewing (more about that later).  Tim woke up and said he slept pretty well and felt better.

I fixed TV dinners for us for supper.  Haven't had a TV dinner in YEARS!  I bought a couple of Hungry Man Fried Chicken dinners while at the store today.  Next time I'll just go to KFC.  Don't know why I didn't think of that in the first place.  The chicken in the TV dinner was mostly breading!  I used to like the Banquet chicken dinners.  Live and learn!  :D

There was some confusion about the time the meeting started tonight, so if you are reading this and you didn't make it to the meeting, just know that the next meeting is scheduled for Friday, April 10th at 7:30 p.m.

There were 6 ladies, including me.  We discussed a project to do for the Assisted Living residents that we see each month.  We had a devotion, ate and played a game.  We finished with prayer.

When we visit the Mallard Ridge Assisted Living facility every month, the ladies always comment how nice and warm my hands are when we shake their hands.  So when I saw these little rice bags as I was browsing the internet one day, I thought they would be the perfect gift for us to make in our ladies' group and take to them. (Click on the picture to get the instructions at Bee In My Bonnet Blog.)  So, I took 2 fat quarters from my stash and quickly cut out 8 bags and stitched them all together, except for one so I could show our ladies how they went together.  But, when I called the activities director, she said it was a good idea, but it was a legal matter and would not be allowed.  They have some of these that only the Physical Therapists are allowed to administer.  Yes, the residents have access to a microwave, but there is the possibility of them getting the bags too hot and burning themselves.  And I have to say that the one I heated up for 30 seconds was really too hot to hold for a couple of minutes.  But, it held the heat for at least 20-25 minutes!  So, we discussed some other ideas instead. 

But, I already had 8 cut out, 7 already sewn together and ready to fill with rice.  So, I decided to create a word game for the ladies and the 4 top scorers would each win a set of the bags.  So I finished filling the ones I had made with rice and sewed them closed, stitched up the one I was saving as an example to show the ladies how to make them, filled it, stitched it closed and had the 4 sets I needed for the game.  So, all was not lost!  The ones shown in the picture are not the ones I made.  I made both sides alike.

That's it for me tonight!  Have a great weekend!
