Found this little sign yesterday
and also lucky to finally find boxes
to send some baking items to Florida.

Wish this sign
 was metal,
will nail on tree by woods
as you pull down long gravel drive.
Maybe it will
 last until little girls visit on
Christmas Eve.

Painful nights continue
and feel better if I keep moving
and a busy day of baking continues. 

Later in the day
will enjoy reading the New York Times
Sunday paper....

So sorry about the painful nights. That can be so draining but it is wonderful that busy days can help take away the pain. Have a great time with your girls.

Pienosole said...

I'm sorry to know that you're having pain at night and wish it would stop for you. I smiled when I saw the sign and can imagine it bringing a smile to many others as well. Happy Sunday and Solstice :-).

Have a wonderful day, Ernestine. Enjoy your baking.

Last night was not the best for me either but not exactly painful, more like tossing and turning.

Anyway, I guess you could not post the sign until just before your company arrives. 😸

Tabor and Pienosole, could be worse and days are a little better. Not taking anything
no pain pills like recommended
have to have a clear head :)
Sallysmom and Anvilcloud, :)

I'm sorry you are having painful nights dear Ernestine. Have you tried any herbal or holistic remedies for your pain?

If your sign isn't too big, could you wrap it in plastic wrap to give it some protection? Just a thought that popped into my head.

Happy Baking ~ FlowerLady

Lorrain, thought of the plastic also and will do. On pain
everything been tried over last 10 years but it is getting worse.
Part of Scjogrens and arthritus.
Has not stopped me, just a little slower. But middle daughter, a nurse, said
"mama you still do more then most 15 years younger."
