I forgot where the SC was today when I got home. Duh.

The dark grey color I planned for the body of the house color is tinted more blue than I could see on the little paint chip, but it looks beautiful! I'm glad I chose a semi gloss, as it looks so clean,crisp and fresh. I can hardly wait to see the semi gloss light grey trim for the shutters and porch rail.
You're right CG..that deep red high gloss door will be begging for a swag of greens for Christmas.

I am getting ready to head for bed to see if I can get a few hours sleep. TB is taking me in the morning to the hospital where my orthopedic surgeon works out of to see if we can get him to see me quicker than a referral from my GP.

My leg is just as bad as it was in the months before my surgery (some of you will remember than, it was 7 years ago, just a year or so after I started here).

I am really not looking forward to going through the ER, but we have to rule out two major possibilities, both of which I have had before - a blood clot or the plastic plate from the replacement has slipped. Hopefully it will be neither of these but we need to be safe.

The good news though is that I will be able to get a lot of reading done sitting in the ER waiting!

So sorry you're in such pain, LP. I hope you see the doctor quickly.

Creative.Maybe.

Getting things set up to make a few candle gift sets.
The designing part is always the hardest.Everyone has his/her own tastes.

Then I'll be stressing out on how they will all need to be presented.Boxed?Wicker baskets,Gift bagged? Who knows.
All I know now are options are available.
Glad I bought new scents and cello wrapping.

Now to go out to that cold frigid garage and tackle a wall of 50# boxes of wax to get what I need.

Looks like were in for a good soaking.Which means we might not have electricity.Better pull out a few cases of votive holders and make a dozen or so votive's while I'm pouring wax anyways.

LPBeier - wishing you all the best for a diagnosis ruling out the 2 options you mention.

I was wondering if there is a way to save our land line phone. My DH dropped it in a bucket of water for just a few seconds. Does anyone have any ideas?

I've read that waterlogged cell phones can be salvaged when placed in a ziplock of dry rice. Also, if you have some of those anti- dessicant packets that come in shoe boxes, suitcases, and leather goods, that might help too. Take off any easily removable covers from the phone if you use the packets.

Take off the battery cover, remove the batteries and stick it in a bag or bowl and cove it with raw rice.
