What a wet dreary day this was! It rained off and on most of the day and was even foggy part of the day. My sister had to have a medical procedure done in
so I went along with her, for company, and in case she could not drive home.
Last time she had an appointment in London ,
her alarm didn’t go off and we had to rush to get there….it’s over 2 hours
away. So, when I got up at 6:00 this morning I decided to call her – no answer.
Oh, oh I thought. She’s sleeping and not hearing the phone even. I kept
calling, and calling, and calling – nothing. One time I let her answering
machine pick up and I yelled into the phone, “BETTE, WAKE UP! TIME TO GET UP
AND GO”. Nothing. Joe was awake as well….still feeling sickly….and said maybe
she went out for breakfast. I said, no she isn’t suppose to eat or drink before
the test. London
She was supposed to pick me up at 7:00 and at 7:00 the doorbell rang. It was her. She forgot she was not suppose to eat, woke up early and left her house and went out for breakfast just before I started calling her. We all had a good laugh over that one! She called down to the hospital to make sure they could still do the test and they said yes but don't eat or drink anything else. Wrong info! Who ever did out the initial report put the wrong info down and she could have breakfast and was supposed to drink three glasses of water an hour before her test. Needless to say we got there early and waited longer!
So, seeing as I’ve been up since 6:00, I’m a little tired tonight so I think I’ll just sit and watch the hockey game and read tonight. But first, a card to post.
This is one of the first stamps I bought many years ago and I still love it. I stamped it on white cardstock with VersaMark and white embossing powder and heat set it. The sentiment was a companion stamp and I bought it at the same time and heat set it with white embossing powder as well. Once it was heat set I sponged Distress Ink all around and over it and then some white ink. The embossing resists the ink but I do rub a cloth over it when done just in case some ink is sitting on the embossed parts. I added a large gem in the middle of the snowflake and a small on at the bottom and then glued it to a white card base.
That’s all from a tired blogger on a rainy Tuesday,
