Half a tree is better than none

Interruptions to the smooth flow of stitching have resulted in almost half a tree. Each green curl has a small red cross to come but I am toying with the idea of a bead instead.
But so far so good.
The DBEM hasn't been well and a visit to the doctor resulted in a phial of large white tablets to swallow. Two in the morning and two at night.   They are huge and I wonder how she manages to get them down.  
But so far so good.

Little brother is coming to visit this weekend and I am making a menu and a shopping list.   Saturday morning will be busy as I try to fit in all the chores (and a visit to the Library) so tonight I have baked a Gingerbread Loaf.   The room is now cosy and warm and the DBEM is salivating.  She loves Gingerbread.   I have joined the Spring Challenge at work and along with others am trying to eat less and be more active.   Hard work.
But so far so good.

  1. Can you cute pills in half for easier swallowing? Weight--easy to put on hard to reduce

  2. If pills are not "timed" they usually
    can be split...and downed with delicious apple sauce...more appealing.
    Hope DBEM is feeling better in no time.
    Love the Christmas tree design.

  3. In chemist's in Japan you can get a jelly into which you put the tablets and ease swallowing. Any such thing in NZ?

  4. I think red beads would look lovely on the cat tree.

  5. Lots going on, so half a tree is really not so bad!
