Another Trip - NOT SO!

On Friday morning, we packed up the car and started out for our trip to Nova Scotia. Well, a couple of days before that, DH developed a pain on the side of his head near the temple area. Friday morning, the pain was worst and since we live close to a small hospital that houses our family doctor's office, he decided to drop in to have it checked out. Luckily, the doctor was in and saw DH right away. From there, we were sent to our city hospital to do a CAT SCAN. Everything came back normal, but our doctor diagnosed DH as having shingles. So, because he has no rash showing, we had to stay home so he could go in to our local hospital to see if the rash shows up. If and when it does show up, the doctor has to prescribe medication right away - that is the only way, it will do any good. So, we were not able to go visit our daughter and her hubby - much to our disappointment.

Our weather has been the pits in the last few days. Yesterday was a continual downpour and guess what, it is raining again today. Arghhhh!

Yesterday, in that rain, I looked out on the lake and saw a mother duck with 6 ducklings going by. It was like a little train going by - so very cute.

Since it is raining today, I may just get back to my quilting. Last week, I decided to work on my collection of pins (lapel pins). I made up three ring binders, with velvet pages to which I place my pins on. I hadn't worked on these for quite a while, so it took me one and one-half days to get it all caught up. I am really happy with the results.

Well, must run. Have a great day everyone!

Mumzy, I hope your DH is feeling better today.

The sun is shining over us so I had a wonderful morning in the garden. Now to get the dirt out from under my nails so I can do some quilting and later this evening cross stitching.

Take care! :)

Hope DH gets better. Too bad you had to miss out on the trip, I'm sure it's disappointing for all. I love watching the mothers with their ducklings, they are so sweet.
It's raining here too.

We were disappointed as well but you know, it may have worked out for the best seeing as the weather was the pits! I think we'll have a better visit in a few weeks :o)

I'm glad Dad is feeling better and I still think it was a good thing that you stayed home. You always want to err on the side of caution.

I've been dying to see ducklings this year and so far nada :o(
