After 2 whirlwind months, coming home instantly messed with my immune system.
Between my relativesâ€™ cats, dogs and horses, I had regularly taken Benadryl, but it didnâ€™t keep the sniffles and sneezes away.
Add to that the airplane air and I was felled the weekend I came home to dreary skies.
I reintegrated with a hearty breakfast at the Lucky Platter, right at their opening time.
Then I got my go-to â€œNatureâ€™s Flu Shotâ€ ingredients and juiced and rested the bulk of the weekend.
I did the laundry right away, but still need to put away the suitcase and organize my clothes.Â Instead I colored a bit until my brain could process life again.
My toilet was runny too so I had to look up how to fix it and then replace a toilet flapper.
Since I had to go out to Home Depot, I also swung by Michaels.
How cute is this (on sale) rainbow drawer set that allows me to color-code my scraps instead of digging through a shoebox?
The cleanup had me revisiting old project ideas and I tossed out old sheets for which I now have better paper.
Daveâ€™s Rock Shop has an assortment of triangle beads I want to fiddle with.
I also did a visual inventory of my ornaments and made a stash of Christmas papers.
My sister got me some goodies to incorporate into my holiday ornaments.
I picked up skull napkins in Germany.
Now I am making some additions to the Halloween Collection.
Then itâ€™s incorporating beads I picked up at Perlenspiel to my angel ideas.
I shopped that store in Wiesbaden when I was a teen, and was thrilled to have my aunt take me back there on my visit.
Contact me if you want a trick or treat pendantâ€”my online shop will lag a bit since the rainy weather doesnâ€™t lend itself to photoshoots.
