I Like Thursdays: September 9, 2021


Good Morning!  Today is "I like Thursdays" and time to post some positive news on our blogs.  For more happy thoughts, check out our hostess Lee Anna's blog!

My husband left early this morning for a business trip and although I will miss him, I'm enjoying the quiet and catching up with home chores.  Today is wash day.

I am so happy that we got our gate back up!  The gate was fine but the posts had deteriorated at the bottom of the posts.  My husband and I are both sore and tired but it's done.  Our dog stays in our backyard and no dogs get in!  Yipppeeee

I like autumn roses which are just starting to bloom again:

I'm really enjoying a new season of "Restoring Galveston" on the DIY channel.  The show features a young charming couple who adore saving old houses.  What's not to like about that?

I am grateful for the Covid-19 vaccine.

It has likely saved my niece's life.  She came down with Covid after cutting the hair of an unvaccinated client who chose to go to the salon even though the client knew she was sick.  

So my niece was diagnosed with Covid last week.  When she broke out in oozing sores and began to swell, she was rushed to the hospital.  The Philadelphia doctors hadn't seen symptoms like hers and consulted with some kind of International Association of Covid Doctors and Researchers.  A Covid Dermatologist (who knew?) diagnosed it and relayed that only the most severe cases of Covid produces these kinds of symptoms.  

But here's the great part:  The vaccine did it's job.  She was told by the specialist that she was lucky she had been vaccinated.  She is home with medication, resting and recovering.  That is my biggest relief this week.  God Bless our Doctors and Scientists!

Have a safe and happy day!

So glad to hear your niece is recovering! I am a fan of Restoring Galveston, too. said...

Wow how scary for the niece and thank goodness she got the shot. Hope she heals quickly. Your gate is lovely.

Hi Michele! Your title threw me off - it's September 9th. Ooose, as Dominic would say. Yay for having the gate fixed on your fence! Dogs staying in and out are a good thing. I like that show, too - Restoring Galveston. Oh, thank God for the vaccination and that your niece had it. How inconsiderate of her client. Just think how many others she may have exposed who have other health challenges. {{Hugs}} a bunch. So glad to hear she is recovering. ~smile~ Roseanne

Oh, I’m so glad your niece is recovering! That was horrible! We have so many in our community that are not vaccinated! I don’t understand it!,
We added gates to our backyard a couple of years ago! To keep visiting great grandlittles safe! It amazing now how much I “need” them closed and locked! Truly they wouldn’t keep any adult that really wanted in, out! But I feel so much more secure with then closed!

Just gotta say before anything how darn cute that little dog embroidery you have at the top of your post. And how good to have a secure gate for the dog too.
My gosh, what a story about your niece! How very fortunate she was vaccinated! I've never heard of such symptoms, good grief, this is one horrible virus. How many stories like your nieces' will have to be heard before people realize the vaccines do work.

Wow! Never heard of those symptoms either nor the Covid dermatologist specialist either. Glad your niece is recovering. Some people need their heads examined when going out in public sick.

So glad you niece was vaccinated! I don't understand why people are refusing to get it. We're so lucky to have it. Great work on the fence!
