You bet your SWEET bippy there are!!! I am NOT sure how long this series will go, but I sure am having FUN at the end of my days, sitting here, relaxing and unwinding from the day's events - just ENJOYING myself as I prepare another installment for y'all!!! This REALLY is relaxing for me, as I am sure that MANY of you find it to be as well!!!

Linda's definition of "pain management":
D-I-G-I-S-C-R-A-P-P-I-N-G (and/or designing!!!)

I am one of those who elects not to take pain meds as we don't mix well! When asked if I have any allergies to medications, I reply, "not clinically", but codeine and I don't get along well! Let's just say, any type of pain medication makes me feel like I'm on drugs!!! ROFL! Okay, there was suppose to be some humor in that, y'all know what I mean!!! I get flushed, break out in a sweat and then will develop chills. NOT a good experience!!!

I've not taken codeine since giving birth to Luke and John nearly 19 years ago! I had developed a clot in my left leg and they gave me codeine and I had, what "I" consider to be, a bad reaction. I remember my first experience at the age of 19 while undergoing a root canal. I was working at Long's Drug Store and lived just a few blocks away. I would walk home for lunch on occasion. My dentist had left my tooth open and put me on codeine to keep the pain minimal!!! Long story short, a sweet elderly lady asked me where the nearest mailbox was and I went into a rather "long" (you are NOT surprised ARE you???) verbal dissertation and I swear I felt like I had talked to her for 20 minutes or so!!! I was OUT OF IT!!! I ended up excusing myself to the ladie's room at work and proceeded to get sick. Needless to say, I went home for the rest of the day and slept it off! UGH!

I have a HIGH threshold for pain so when I am in discomfort and/or some serious pain, I just plop myself down in my computer chair and get creative!!! Well, I try anyhoo. Sometimes I may just sit here and stare at the screen for awhile until my brain wraps around the fact that "I" wish to design or scrap!!! LOL! Really though, I will sit here and tinker until I feel that I can crawl into bed and go right to sleep.

Before I forget, I finally was able to get information about the collapsed ride at our local fair online yesterday. Thank God, NO ONE was killed and the ones who were hospitalized were all released yesterday. I believe the total number of injured was 18 and, of course, the cause of it's failure to perform properly is still under investigation. The Calaveras County Fair and Frog Jumping Jubilee came to end yesterday evening. Ahhh shucks! I mean, OH RIBBIT! I was going to announce to you this year's winning frog and I've already forgotten his name!

Luke's girlfriend, Tessa, raised and showed a couple of chickens. She placed third and fourth!!! WAY TO GO TESSA!!! By the way, my PA's daughter had been ill on Friday, causing my appointment to be rescheduled for this past Thursday. While in with Stephanie, I asked how her daughter was. She told me that everything was better over the weekend and that "her" daughter was showing chickens. Uh, huh .... Amy and Tessa know each other. Small world ... small TOWN living!!! Tessa delievered one of those chickens to us today ... uhm ... let's just say, it's ready for the bar-b-que!

Nancy dearest, I apologize for not having the results of my blood work posted! My post was already LONG enough and talking about that would have made for a novel!!!

I will catch you all up on those findings over the next couple of days. Everything came back looking good and I have a couple of things to share with you on that which REALLY, REALLY made me feel GOOD and just might prove to be interesting!!!

I have a few more projects to complete by month's end and then I hope to start working on some kits to sell!!! I am going broke with all the shopping I do for commerical goodies, but GOSH, I just cannot resist!!! ROFL! I am just not as fast a designer as some and I am not allowing myself to "stress" anymore because we ALL know that is not good for us, don't we??? He, he ... All things in their proper time! I REALLY do enjoy creating a little each day and sharing it with my GOOD friends all around the world!!!

Thank you SO, SO very much for ALL the LOVIN' y'all leave me on 4-shared and HERE! Y'all are just WAY too sweet and put BIG smiles on my face first thing in the morning!!! I LOVE reading your feedback on whatever topic happens to come up!

Without further adieu, here is *Those Were The Daisies* #4! I would LOVE to see your MASTERPIECES using this series and just as soon as I begin to receive some, I will move the current slideshow down below and start a new one for *Those Were The Daisies*!!!

As soon as I am caught up and back in the swing of things, I have been wanting to post a bit of a challenge for you forever now and hope to be able to do so in the near future. I have a HEAD full of ideas, but my body is not cooperating!

Night darlins' - have a BEAUTIFUL tomorrow (today)!!!
