An Improvement

I must have bad karma, because I'm still under the weather. I finally went to the Dr and came home with 10 days of antibiotics. Not looking forward to taking them but not looking forward being a mouth breather either. And it would be nice to breath without gurgling or coughing. I had just enough energy to grab so probiotics for after. Glad to be home.

Yesterday I convinced my family that I needed a ride to Lowe's to pick up a few items.
I've been collecting a few antique sewing items and they have been taking over my sewing space. So I NEEDED to fix it, sick or not.
Here is a before (with a little clean up)
To an after.
I'll have you know, this took me hours to finish. At least an hour to hang the shelf. Drill one hole, rest for 15 minutes. Repeat 5 times.

I also bought a set of smaller shelves for the opposite side of the room, but I'm not ready for them. I may need to finish those antibiotics before I tackle them.

Hope all is well in your worlds and blog ladies! I need entertainment as I lay on my couch coughing up lung slugs!

Take care, Brandie

I have a lurgy that has gone on and on, today is the first day I have felt half way decent but I'm still coughing and blowing my nose - it has been a lovely way to spend my leave from work, I go back tommorow.

I hope the antibiotics do the trick and you are fighting fit in now time
