6b5837f1-67da-45c0-b9b2-604969f5a74f.jpegHello everyone…..Are you staying warm?  Bradley and I are as snug as a bug…..we use to love to walk in the snow…. I can’t and he likes the cold, but not this cold..

I haven’t been doing much lately now that Hallmark Christmas is over and football almost over.  I guess I will now wait on the Olympics to start and basketball.

My pumpkin decor has come to a stand still…either people do not like them or I don’t know how to market them…..you can see them on my Facebook page…Creative Designs by Ms Gail…. I guess I am going to have to find something else to pass my time with……I guess it is back to working puzzles and coloring…..

You know, we talked about my losing weight after the first of the year.  I saw my Pulmonologist and on my chart was marked the dreaded “obese”…. I see him again in May and I am going to try my best to lose some weight by then…Notice…. I said try….It’s not easy when you are alone most of the time, can’t exercise and cook for only one…AND I have a major sweet tooth…. I could have oatmeal for breakfast but I would rather have a donut, pop tart or Oreos and a glass of milk…lunch is a bowl of soup or sandwich with chips…. I don’t do fast food…because…. I can’t drive..only reason….every now and then, I will convince Sandy to stop by McDonalds on her way home from work and bring me a Large order of fries…..Ohhh so good….

Now, Sandy and Al do my grocery shopping for me.. I have on my list healthy food, trying to think what is healthy….let’s see….corn dogs, frozen French fries, frozen biscuits, frozen sausage patties, chicken pot pies and so on…..I supply my pantry with junk food from Walmart on-line 2 day delivery service..  I try to time the delivery so I get it and hide it before Sandy finds it.   Well good luck with losing weight… I have NO Willpower…..

Change of subject……

I am pretty sure you all know, if you have been following ny posts, that I am dying.  And yes I know that we are all dying,  but my death may be sooner than later… I was told 3 to 5 years…2 have passed..so I guess that leaves me 1 to 3 years left….

I believe in God and I know He will send His Angels for me when He is ready…I am not afraid of dying and I have a living will and a DNR…Am I getting personal?  Yes I am..I have a terrible disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis.  No cure… I am on oxygen 24/7 and more fatigue by the day…. I got this disease by inhaling fibers from burlap I was using to make wreaths…So, my title is very true “The Deadly Wreath”….

I have so much more to tell you about..but for now I am very tired and must take a nap….  Blessings to all of you…

  3. I have just started my new hobby of wreath making. I didn’t know about this and someone informed me of the dangers. I am so sorry for your loss of your granddaughter. I have 5of them. The loss of either of them would be devastating. Can these fibers harm anyone in my home after after I have worked with it?


  4. I’m so sorry to hear about your illness and loss. I lost my sister a year and 1/2 ago to pulmonary fibrosis. So devastating! I miss her so much! But I am also thankful that she is not suffering anymore. Lean on God! He can turn all of this around for you! He truly is an awesome God! Prayers your way sweetie!
