Already Thursday and freebie

Sitting up waiting for my hair to dry (don't like to blow dry it often) so thought I'd go ahead and put up today's post. The phone rang around 11:00 p.m. and John and I just looked at each other before he answered, expecting bad news. It was Dad who has his days and nights mixed up. He was slurring his words, saying no one was telling him anything, and that he'd called for the nurse about an hour past but no one came. My husband patiently explained what I'd told him about balancing heart and kidney function (I did explain this to Dad yesterday) and sympathized with him about being stuck in the hospital. He told Dad to press nurse buzzer again (we know he gets confused so might have done something else) and said that after Dad hung up, we would call the nurses station and ask them to send someone to him. He didn't call back so I guess they did.

Had thought I might go to movie with Mary today but she didn't return my call or e-mail. Perhaps she's upset with me because we had originally talked about going on Tuesday. But I hadn't heard anything from her and went on to hospital, then discovered late last night that she was late getting back to me. Oh well.

There's a new grocery store opening nearby. It's one owned by a German company, Lidl, so hubby and I might go check it out for specials early in the morning. If no word from Mary by 11:00 a.m., I'll just get some work done then head over to hospital.

As you can see, I finally got around to changing my blog header. Today's zip has another cooking chick:
Why chicks, you might be asking. A good friend of mine, Wanda C. loves chickens. Her kitchen in Amelia County, VA was decorated in everything chicken you can think of so whenever I see cute chickens. I think of her. I'd spotted one such chick some time ago and saved it to applique to a tea towel for Wanda and got to thinking about women being referred to as "chicks" or "birds." The anthropomorphic chicks I kept seeing, and phrases like "Oh, that movie is a chick flick," and so on gave me the idea for It's a Chick Thing. And now your link:

We are drawing near to the end of Chick Thing so if you aren't into the chickens, hold on. I think next might be something shopping related because I couldn't resist buying a set of commercial use elements in that theme.
