Our life living off the land in our log cabin, breathing fresh mountain air, and getting back to basics.

Time for Christmas Decorations!

Everything went well with the dentist today, thank you to all who were concerned.  He was patient, kind, and interested in what I had to say as we waited for my mouth to numb.  Really, it wasn't so bad.  Don't get me wrong, I did use medication he prescribed to keep me calm.  And yes-in-deedy, it worked!  Of course, I'm a little sore, but nothing unbearable.  Remember my comment about preferring to give natural birth rather than have a dental procedure...I am reconsidering, LOL!  I will have a follow up appointment in January to get a full exam and possibly a treatment plan (ew, but I liked Dr. P McGuire, so I am good with seeing him again) and I look forward to having my mouth be whole and healthy without any little cracks and such getting in my way:)

Once I got home, yes, a little woozy from the medication, I tried to get back on track with my to-do list.  Here are some of the things I wanted to share with you...I do dare admit it took a while for me to be back to myself!

These are our Christmas snowflake lights we installed this afternoon.  They run along the front of the cabin. LOVE them!

This is my new snowflake wind catcher.  LOVE it too!  It reflects speckles of the sun into the cabin as it twirls around; I tried to capture those shots but nothing worth sharing, unfortunately.

This looks like some internal organ, but it is the internals of the wood burning stove.  I thought the picture was interesting enough to share, odd as it may be.  Notice the flame on the right side, the white stuff to the right is really hot wood and the red is wood that is burning but not engulfed in the heat.  Fire is amazing to watch in action, as long as it is in an enclosed or safe environment.  

Thanks to all my family and friends who cared about my going to the dentist today.  You gave me strength and the ability to manage my day.  I hope that all of you who have upcoming dental experiences share my same positive results.  And trust me, if you believe you need them, go with the relaxation pills...makes a world of difference!

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,

I am sooo happy to hear your good news.. I bet you are so glad it's over.. Mine didn't go as good.. I have to take some antibiotics and go back next week.. They had some infection but not enough for him not to do the procedure, I have to take them because I have a heart condition that requires an antibiotic every time I have any kind of surgery. I have two upper teeth in my jaw that has to have some calcium build up removed.. I now dread the antibiotics worse because I'm not good with taking them.. I have irratabile Bowel syndrome along with some more problems. I've been thinking of you and praying for you and I needed some good news.. Thank you.

Susie, sorry to hear about your dental struggles...I'll keep healing thoughts for you, and for strength too! I'm sure in the end all will work out well...sometimes I think the worst part is the waiting!
