Hello.....It is just about dinner time here but I wanted to get a quick update done before eating. It has been a busy day for these 2 'old' people.
I had a nail appointment this morning. Hubby went and got our water cooler bottles filled while I was gone. After lunch we had an appointment with our nutritionist. She gave us some sad news.........the company she works for, is no longer going to bill insurance for her services. This is an issue for those of us on Medicare. As a patient, we are not allowed to file claims with Medicare. Plus...........the Medicare plan that covers our state will not pay for a Nutritionist......only a dietitian! And you can only go to a dietitian AFTER you are diagnosed with a disease! Crazy,huh. Needless to say, hubby and I will be contacting our Medicare carrier and starting to file complaints by voice and by mail. (Our Medicare carrier is Blue Cross of North Dakota and there is no coverage for nutritionists by ANY blue cross plan!)
We were bummed but.......................she is going to start holding classes and the cost of the is NOT prohibitive for our 'fixed' income. We are looking forward to going to those. Then, come to find out, she will also do private sessions if needed for a small fee. I LOVE THIS WOMAN!
When we got home I had a lovely package waiting for me. Knit Picks had been delivered. I had ordered from them while in Texas. Let's take a little peek at what was in the box.
I ordered this pattern book. It has many sweaters and they are all designed for small to plus sized women. There are only 2 long sleeved sweaters in it and the rest are sleeveless or short sleeved. It was on sale and I have already marked about 6 of them I would love to make.
Daughter in Law in Texas suggested that she could use some more dishcloths. Seems her husband decided they would be great to clean his BBQ grill. I swear, I raised him better than that. I got 2 skeins of each color. The red is not showing up well in the photo. It is a BRIGHT Fiesta red.
I finally got a yarn bowl. I have been wanting one for several years. I bought a bamboo bowl at Ikea 2 years ago. Hubby said he would be happy to turn it into a yarn bowl. Hasn't happened yet and this one was on sale and solid Rosewood. I think it is happy to be in my home LOL.
The weather has been lovely and I have even been able to sit outside in my rocking chair during the mornings and enjoying some fresh air. Our front door has been open all day today. I love fresh air. I realize it won't be long before opening the door will only bring in burning heat. I will take it while I can!
Until next time........................happy crafting.
