Sorry for no post yesterday. The day was normal, but then I went downtown and went for dinner at Nightingale. It was fabulous! I have never had a restaurant do such a thorough and great job about my allergies. The food was amazing! We shared roasted cauliflower, roasted Brussels sprouts, Arctic char and then I had carrot cake for dessert. I would highly recommend this restaurant as it is fancy enough for a Christmas gathering or a special event, but not hoity toity or snooty.

ok today..

Teaching:

We literally spent the entire day working on and finishing our parent gifts, but they did finally go home with the children today!

I also spoke with two more parents about the report cards so at least I’ve spoken with four parents. That should mean I shouldn’t have any more than 18 emails to come back to!

Medical:

I went to meet a new doctor today and was super pleased. Hopefully everything comes through. She has ordered three more iron infusions for me, and another blood test as my platelet levels were low. I hope I get one more infusion before I leave, but I somehow doubt it:(

Knitting:

I am furiously trying to get another market bag done for Thursday, but I’m not sure it’s going to happen:(

Shopping:

I was right by the mall so grabbed two new pairs of jeans, though I wish I had taken someone else with me and that I had tried on more styles. I really shouldn’t be trying to do anything with this foggy brain!

Blogmas:

Thanks Abbey for making me think about things I just take for granted. Lol our tree skirt growing up was an old red piece of fabric that was raw edges and all. I have no idea where it came from, but it survived as our tree skirt for my entire childhood. I dream of cross-stitching a fancy tree skirt, but always decide not to bother as I rarely put up a tree🤣

      1. Oh so much work though and I still have to finish the cross stitch project that I was supposed to finish last year!

  1. I think that maybe a typo on the answer for the Loch Ness Monster, her nickname is Nessie not Bessie …if you ever come over here to search for her I’m only about 20 miles from Loch Ness 😀

    1. Oops that was a typo! I am horrible about that when I’m getting home from trivia- just too late for me!
      Ooo I’ll keep that in mind:)
