This has been a busy time between Christmas and today. The vet came back and I took Nitty in for her allergy shot and she has an infected nipple...just 1, thank God, as dogs have quite a few! He thinks it's just an infection but it could be cancer and I have to keep an eye on it. I did take the new (empty) bag of dog food Walmart is carrying now and he said it's great and he's been looking for a less expensive alternative for his patients who's dogs are allergic. It's called Pure Balance. It's still more expensive than Pedigree which she was getting but not nearly as expensive as Hill's Science Diet. There is dry and canned in different varieties. I'm praying it is just an infection which I think it is. Because of her allergies she was crawling on the grass outside trying to scratch her stomach and I think there was probably deer and/or rabbit dung out there. She's already stopped itching and licking and the vet gave her the allergy shot and she's on antibiotics.
I've been snagging my yarn when I knit/crochet because my hands are chapped and cracked. I put hand cream on but it wasn't doing the trick so I bought some of this stuff.........
One of my "resolutions" this year was to make some clothes for myself. I used to sew my own clothes in high school and also for my children when they were young. The first thing I want to make is pajamas. I like flannel in the winter and cotton in the summer but all I can find are the flannel pants with a t-shirt to go with or else acrylic materials which I do not care for. Patterns have sure gone up in price! Whew! $8-$9 but that should be the only pattern I need for pajamas. I like my clothes big too. I can't stand anything clinging or binding on me now that I'm "retired".
sells for like $5.00 each. I also like the old "smocks" people used to wear. My Aunt was ceramic artist and she always wore smocks with big pockets. Anyway, this is one of my resolutions this year...to update/sew my retirement wardrobe and clear out all that corporate
