People and places.....
This past Saturday was the 1st anniversary of a wonderful shop in the little village of Havelte. The shop In Den Uylenbal is full of wonders this time of year. The owners Lejo en Christy are such nice people too. The shop was all decked out for Christmas. It was nice to walk from room to room and I must admit that I do so a couple of times. I found a nice addition for my decorations at the cottage which you can see how I used on the photos.
Later in the afternoon, we drove out to the garden nursery that we regularly buy from to get something for on my table by our front door for the Christmas season. The two ladies who work at the cash registers were there and one found me as I was searching for plants. She said it had been so long since she saw me and was everything okay. Then she ran into Jos who was still out in parking lot as she helped an elderly couple take their things to the car where she talked to him. When I went to pay for my plants, she walked away for a moment and then back to the cash register with this bouquet of flowers. She said it was from them all there for all I have been through this year. Wasn't that incredibly nice of her?
Now this morning, I am laying on the couch after just returning from the oral surgeon. My tooth has been removed and the infection cleaned up. I am hoping it won't hurt too badly when the shots wear off. He gave me four of them to be certain I would not have pain while he was working on it. I am already starting to get a swelling the size of a walnut in my jaw so I am afraid it is going to be baby food for the coming week. Jos bought me a chocolate milkshake on the way home which I am slowly drinking for lunch. What a start to the week don't you think? I have learned my lesson that if I don't trust a dentist then I need to make him stop and seek further help. There was a needle sticking out of the tooth when it came out. I don't think that was part of the root canal? I have to ask my dentist yet since I forgot to ask the surgeon by the time he was done with the procedure, but I think my dentist's guess that a wire or needle had broken and was left in the jaw was correct. He thought this was perhaps what caused the infection. It has been four years of having pain and the infection causing an abcess. Glad that is over with and now my new dentist can make a bridge.
So today will be sitting wrapped up in my mother's afghan with a book or some stitching. What are you doing this Monday?
