Mundanity

I didn’t post yesterday … thought about it and decided there wasn’t enough worth writing about … I mean, it was a cleaning and shopping day … so meh.

However, I did learn something worth sharing. Don wasn’t feeling well, so he got out our Covid tests, only to find they were expired. Wondering if they could still be used, I did some googling around and found out that the FDA has extended many expiration dates. You can go here to look up the test type (easily done as there are images), then click to see if your tests are still viable. In fact, the tests we have with a 07/07/2022 expiration date have been extended to April 2023.

And no … Don doesn’t have Covid (phew!) …

and yes … I’ve ordered more free tests to get us past April …

and ha! … look at the header on the free tests page …

Okay … lunch is over, I’ve written a blog post, and now there’s no excuse to delay any longer … it’s time to get back to stitching the bed cloth … which will feel good in my lap as the temperature outside has fallen to a more winter-ish 52 degrees (well, winter-ish by Texas standards anyway).

The good, the bad, and the silly … in no particular order

It is raining for the first time in 45 days, so I went outside to smell the scent of it and to uncover the new baby tomato plants, which have never before experienced rain …

which lasted all of five minutes … poof!

We’re also growing swallowtail caterpillars which are exceedingly fond of parsley … 15 of them at last count …

And I have no idea what this is all about, but I love it all the same …

On the other hand, I wasn’t loving the paper piecing experiment, so I disassembled it …

Hopefully the third time will be the charm.
