Speaking of germs, to this day, something I started as long ago as I can remember, if I see a dead animal in the road driving I stop breathing for a spell so I don't breathe in any nasties that might be picked up in the car.
Of course they would be picked up by the car's air vents and probably trapped to be breathed in later, but it's just one of those habits.

I am doing a happy dance right now! And that isn't easy for someone as crippled up as me!

I was very happy with the room arrangement with me getting the smallest room for my craft/cake studio. That was until I realized how much stuff I have for all my projects. However, I still love the room and have been working on getting it organized.

We got new neighbours upstairs from us and they have 4 adults and 3 little ones. The noise is okay everywhere except over our bedroom, which is also along the wall where the stairs go up (we have our own entrance but the upper suites have a stairwell and hallway). We got used to that sound, but now we hear everything from their main floor bedroom and the bathtub which seems to run a couple of hours straight every morning!

Dad's old room will be our new quiet bedroom and TB was going to take the current bedroom for his office and computer storage. Today he told me the hookups in my current room are all set for the router, modem, etc. and that there is enough room for his stuff so he will move in here and I get the biggest room in the house for my studio! It is only 9" wider than what will be our bedroom (but that IS 9" of closet space). I never even thought of this and made sure he was okay with less space, which he is!

I can't wait to get started!

When we were kids we were told to do that when driving through highway tunnels, to protect us from carbon monoxide poisoning!

I do the same thing pac, but only because my nose knows skunk! Himself and our daughter smell it but aren't bothered, our son can't smell it at all, and I can smell 'em before I see em! If the speed bump ends up being something else I start breathing again.

I'm stalling - should start supper. Not even a big one, cheating with Trader Joe.

Watching the special news report of a bridge collapse about 45 miles south of us. This bridge is on the major north/south interstate ( I-5) from Canada to Mexico. It crosses the Skagit River. Thank goodness they are now reporting no fatalities, and only 3 people taken to hospital. Miraculous .......since 71000 vehicles cross this bridge daily. I cross it often myself. The river is fed by a glacial lake and is very cold at this time of year, likely 40-45 degrees. The currents are extremely dangerous this is not a swimming river, at least not in the area of the bridge. I am just so amazed that so few vehicles were on it at the time if collapse.
