A little bit of this n' that

I've been away from the blogging world for a while now, so this post is going to be a little bit of this and that from the last couple of weeks.

First, I got tagged....fourth photo in my fourth photo file.....a stairway of a lighthouse or castle (I'm not sure which one) from my Architecture File. I would love to do a quilt of this photo working with hand dyed fabrics. It's on my list! Next, I worked the elections on Nov. 4th. I was a TST, which is a fancy word for the person who keeps the voting machines safe and running. We had a slow day, I think because so many people voted early. The two precincts at our Elementary School had the potential of 1800 voters. We had 504 early vote, plus about another 700 on Election day. I'm not too sure I like Barack Obama as President, but then I wasn't too impressed with the McCain/Palin ticket either. Oh well, he's my President for the next 4 years. Hope runs eternal!

The main reason I have been not blogging is I am sick. I am battling pancreatis! I have lost 7 pounds in one week. I haven't been eating at all and drinking as little as I can get away with and stay hydrated. I had pancreatis about 8 years ago, but then, I ended up in the Hospital having my gallbladder out. I'll be glad when my body likes me again!

In Closing: Your favorite comfort now, anything that will stay down, but normally, I like warm pudding (usually chocolate)with cold whip cream on top. How about you?

Sorry you're sick- hope you feel all better soon!

My favorite comfort food? Probably fruit desserts (cobblers, crisps, pie), and lately, cinnamon toast.

I wish my favorite comfort food could be celery- imagine the possibilities!
