Baptism: Elizabeth Grace

Our new granddaughter, Elizabeth Grace, was baptized today. The house was a great deal less quiet than usual this afternoon.

Elizabeth Grace, waiting: fairly patiently.

Our First LED Light

We got our first LED lightbulbs today. One of them is in the upstairs bathroom, where it serves as nighttime illumination for the hallway and stairs. The other hasn't been placed yet.

The things are pricey, but since they're rated to last for years: over time, the cost will be much less than running and replacing incandescent lights.

My son tells me that the LED lightbulb is significantly brighter than what we had: and apparently yellower.

Aside from that, and getting ready for a baptism this weekend, life has been quite routine: which I don't mind one bit.

So That's Why I Felt Awful

My wife told me to talk to the clinic folks this morning. When I got back, #3 daughter observed that this sort of thing is probably why men live longer if we're married.

My white count is up: enough to show that there's a bacterial infection in progress. That makes sense, since my right foot has been a rather bright red for several days: and woke me up around 3:00 a.m. a few times.

An injection in the derriere and the first installment of an oral antibiotic later, and I'm feeling slightly less 'bleah' than I have for some time.

My wife and #3 daughter are much better: both have been moving around a bit since - Thursday, I think. We've been using the living room as a sort of convalescent ward. Those two, and my son, have been enjoying something of a respiratory nature, followed and/or accompanied by what we call stomach flu.

Aside from that, things have been going pretty well.
