240 Done

The production of flying geese strips continues Near Philadelphia. 140 of the required 600 are complete. I find I cannot do more than 40 at a sitting; otherwise, I get sloppy and the nifty thing about these strips of geese is the precision.

It's okay. They'll get done. And I haven't felt like doing more than 20 at a time for a while. On Monday after a 24-hour shift at the hospital Saturday into Sunday, I woke up with what my late mother used to call the "May-Lay Waste-Away," and I was terribly, terribly sick for the next 12 hours and only slightly less sick for the following 24. I'm still kind of washed out and draggy, and have another hospital shift starting tomorrow. 

Someone pointed out that my blogging has really fallen off and she hoped I wouldn't discontinue completely. I've figured out why, and no, I won't. I think the next post might deal with that topic.

Those are great, but I'd only be able to do them in small doses too. Hope you are feeling 100% soon!

600 geese is quite a gaggle. Your flock looks great thus far. I do hope you will continue blogging. I appreciate your thoughtful insights (insightful thoughts?). I think of Snoopy: "There's no use doing a lot of barking if you don't have much to say."

Oh, it sounds like you have had a tough time of it. Are you really up to another shift already?
Well, the geese are impressive to me. I don't know that I could even do 20 at one sitting. I am very easily distracted.

Bless your heart and other parts! So sorry you've been miserably sick. When I was a young nurse, I remember older nurses (the age I am now) saying they could no longer work double shifts as it made them sick to lose so much sleep and to keep going for 16 hours. Imagine adding 8 more hours to that, and perhaps the fatigue was part of why you got sick. Hope you're up for this next shift and breeze thru it without problems.

Love your many Flying Geese and am amazed at the thought of making 600. Ooof! You can do it, one at a time!

Hugs!

Take care of yourself. I'll be interested to hear what you say on blogging as I have had my own "slowing downs" too recently. And slowly people are disappearing from my Bloglovin list...

That is one big lot of Flying Geese! I like the solids, though, and the colors. 600 - wow!
