Oh, it's cold here in Oklahoma City! The wind chill meters have frozen so they can't read the wind chill but estimate it's 15 below zero! Last night about 9 PM, Charlie came in from outside and collapsed! He couldn't get up and was barely breathing. Well, there was ice and snow and my son had just called me from picking up his wife at work (she's a pediatric intensive care nurse) and he said that the roads were the worst he'd ever seen! I didn't think I could drive Charlie to the vet on the ice. I called and talked to them and the vet said there was nothing they could do other than put Charlie in an oxygen cage but then the vet said but don't try to drive here. They are the emergency vet and they said that none of the emergency patients that had been referred to them had been able to make it to the clinic. So I had about my 1000th talk with Jesus about Charlie and he got better! My son, who used to do emergency room medicine, told me to put a fan on him to get some air circulating around his face. Well, that did it. Charlie looked at me like "are you crazy" and got up to get away from the fan! He seems to be okay this morning but keeping this old guy alive is stressful. Oh, it's totally worth it but it's really, really frightening at times.
It's patterns for blocks to make a sampler quilt for the kitchen and all the blocks are food or cooking related. I love the quilt and I love the little apron block. It will have little ties when the quilt is put together.
I hope the weather is better where you are! Tomorrow our weather is supposed to get back to normal and be in the 40's. We just have to get through today. Charlie's little heart can't take much more of this frigid weather and I can't either! Stay safe and warm! XO and cheery wave from Bev
