The first really good thing ~ my sweetheart made Clear Toy (AKA Barley) Candy for me. It's pretty much just hardened sugar but if you want something sweet it's the ticket. I have been kinda grouchy lately and I think he wanted to sweeten me up! It's cooked in a pot on the stove and then poured into molds.
We don't have fancy molds but these are tiny muffin tins and the candies come out like discs.
Above is the finished product ~ only there's not as many of them now!
The second really good thing ~ The doctor's coat I ordered for my grandson's 3rd birthday arrived. I was able to give him a doctor's bag with the instruments on his birthday which he really liked (I guess every little boy likes to play doctor!). He looks great in the coat ~ very professional I think. The coat has Dr Baggs embroidered on the pocket.
The bag with the instruments has Dr. Baggs on one side too but you won't get to see it. He wouldn't pose for us yesterday. Oh well, that's OK, there will probably be many more opportunities.
Here he is getting ready to do some "doctorin" on his mother.

As disappointed as she is Corinne won't be blogging actively for some time to come. I have been her doctor for a long time now and I have never seen her in such distress. The arthritis pain she is suffering from is at times extreme. When not extreme it is a relentless agony and does not permit her to have a good night's sleep or be active throughout the day. Medication has not helped, in fact each one tried has worsened her situation for days after taking it.
OK ..... you're right he didn't write the note! I just want you to know I will be back. Bits & pieces for awhile and then in full force. It is important to me that you understand the couple of entries I did were not just ~ been there, done that ~ I really liked blogging and can't wait to get good at it.
Thanks for understanding and please keep checking back ~ I will return and I will be in good form too. I expect I will have knee replacement surgery ~ let's see how much of that I can capture.
