must have the other pkg here somewhere

_speaking of Vikki & shipping IM out of cranberry tart- & I have 2_ sheets of concord crush left for JAnUaRY'S order. I here never re-inked before Not sure if I need to or not
My light green inks which have never seen much use,seem all dried out
I have the old fabric pads,they're still the kind that the lid flips over. I have some really old ones which were small in comparison and the lids flipped open with stationery hinges. I dont really want to replace them,just find it frustrating that they are developing strings from fraying
all that being said is there something I can do get some usage out of the ones who haven't seen much usage

All kidding aside, I am not complaining....just getting used to the new "us" for the next few weeks. I already miss him being able to drive.

DD saw Catching Fire on Friday. She loved it. They never got home until 12:30 in the morning. Next time I hope my cousin pre-buys the movie tickets so they get into an earlier show.

We have had TONS of rain here this weekend. Today it is sunny though

I hope to decorate the house for Christmas today or tomorrow. The tree has been up for awhile and out door lights done prior to the surgery. I have waited on the knick knacks though. Those don't require my DH help.

I like the 'group hug" Maggie! So cute!!

Nancy...you are SO good on that computer. I wish I was.

I am off to eat breakfast and then go for a quick walk. Weather is too nice to pass up a walk. Talk with you all later.
So sorry for your DH and YOU! LOL! Isn't he in a walking cast or something? How's that going?

I'm hope I get to see Catching Fire while it's at the theater. Maybe next weekend. Glad that they made it home safely.

Weather here is COLD, RAINY, WINDY - NASTY!!!!!!!! I'm looking out the window at my office and there is a string of car lights down the freeway, so there must be an accident somewhere up ahead. So glad I don't have to drive that way to get home later. I do have a meeting out tonight. Wish I could stay home and curl up where it's warm.

Hi Joyce. Did you tell us before you were having surgery? Will keep you in my prayers that all goes well. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

Her three daughters stayed with us a few days, now they are staying with other friends. They all had colds and coughs too. Need prayers I don't get it, so I won't give it to Mom.

Yes, we all need hugs. I am so thankful for you all and your prayers and encouragement. You know, even my grown kids living in other states, don't know as much as you guys what we are going thru.
love and hugs
Prayers aren't hard to give.

Will be praying fro your friend with the brain surgery. I do hope that she gets good news back. It's so much sadder when they have young ones at home. So good of you to watch out for them also with all the rest that you are dealing with.

Joyce, I hope your feeling better. Surgery? Did you mention this before and I didn't see it? Every one is having surgery. I hope it is something minor and I hope you are feeling better and not sick before the day of surgery so they don't post pone it.

Sharon, I hope you can keep from getting sick too. You definitely don't want your mom to catch it. I think Maggie has some cold remedies for your DH. I think some sage tea maybe with honey. I don't remember.

Maggie, what did you fix for dinner tonight? Did you DD and her family come over for dinner?

Brandy, I hope your knee is starting to feel better.
Sage tea is excellent for colds to clear up congestion! Put some honey and lemon in it. If you have sore throat, suck on a dill pickle or gargle with the warm sage tea with some Apple Cider Vinegar in it.

I made Chicken Stew for dinner. It was excellent and I know I'll be making it again. It's 3 lbs. of chicken thighs, cut in half , 3 medium firm apples like Galas peeled and sliced into 6 wedges (I used organic apples, so I left the skin on); 2 medium large sweet potatoes cut into 1 1/2" chunks, 1 sweet onion (I used a red onion cause I like them), 2 Tablespoons of chopped fresh Sage, some salt and pepper to taste. Put in slow cooker in that order and cook on Low for 6 1/2 hours. Yummy!!!!!!!!! You don't even need any liquid, the chicken and apples make the liquid.

The last time they had to remove something it was the size of a fist, I ended up with a pic line and not able to eat or drnk for 7 months. But I'm not nearly as sick as I was then, and actually feeling quite a bit better back on the meds.

Thanks for your well wishes. As far as the holidays go we are pretty much ready. We even decorated the tree yesterday. I wanted to have everything done before the 2 nd just in case the surgery is more invasive then we hope.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Will be keeping you in my prayers that all goes well and that you won't need the surgery and prayers for a quick recovery if you do. That's great that you are all ready for the holidays.

That is way too cold for me. I remember those days when I lived in PA. 40 is cold enough for me and it's going to get colder this week. Then we go to Old Town Spring on Friday which is a lot of walking around shopping and it'll be only in the 50's which will still be cold being outside.

with the cold up there, I think I"d have to get that looked at. Maybe something blocking the air or the air baffle is not working properly.

I still have all my older SU stamp pads and reinkers for them. I don't like the new stamp pads at all and don't use them that much so I'll stick with using the old ones until I run out of reinkers and then I'll just toss them.

Went to see my friend in hospital today. Her neck, face , eyes all Blake and blue. I walked the halls with her. She is on a walker just in case. I guess she is suppose to get exercise. So amazing that a person can walk, eat, etc after brain surgery, just a few days ago. Don't know when she will find out anything, but they are keeping her there until they know what treatment they will do. the girls, BTW, are grown. They are ready to take Mom home, anther town 300 miles from here. They would like to be home for TG.
Thanks for the prayers.

I hope whatever they find isn't serious and it is just healing on its own. Maybe feeling better on he meds is a good sign!

Hi Gals! I missed a lot of conversation on here today I need to read thru again and get caught up.
Joyce, I hope your surgery goes well. Let us know how you are when you are able to.
Maggie, the recipe you posted sounds delicious! Yes, hubby has a walking cast but hasn't put it to use much. LOL I'm the legs right now. I think by Wed. he will walk on it more. He was told to stay off of it and keep it elevated as much as possible. I did mention gently today that he cannot just sit all day. He came to the table for dinner this evening so that was good (no serving tray required). We got him a chair to put the foot on so it was elevated.
Sharon, hope your friend continues to get better.
Nancy, your comment on my blog about me having many friends just cracked me up. LOL I laughed when I read that. I told my DH I was not feeling the decorating spirit today. He took one look at the mess and said it was because I had too much stuff. LOL After an hour or so of listening to Christmas carols I told him my decorating spirit was up. All that's left is the kitchen which when done will be filled with gingerbreads.
Brandy, I have heard that Twitter is where it is at to grow your blog, business, etc. Twitter confuses me.
Trying my best not to order Week Three Santa Sack at October Afternoon. Not sure if I can hold out though.LOL

I guess they do that these days - get you up and walking around if you can - not like Brenda's DH who can't right now, but I think it helps get everything back in working order with the increased blood flow in your body. I hope that they will have the answers for her soon and it will be good news.

Joyce, I hope your surgery goes well. Let us know how you are when you are able to.
Maggie, the recipe you posted sounds delicious! Yes, hubby has a walking cast but hasn't put it to use much. LOL I'm the legs right now. I think by Wed. he will walk on it more. He was told to stay off of it and keep it elevated as much as possible. I did mention gently today that he cannot just sit all day. He came to the table for dinner this evening so that was good (no serving tray required). We got him a chair to put the foot on so it was elevated.
Sharon, hope your friend continues to get better.
Nancy, your comment on my blog about me having many friends just cracked me up. LOL I laughed when I read that. I told my DH I was not feeling the decorating spirit today. He took one look at the mess and said it was because I had too much stuff. LOL After an hour or so of listening to Christmas carols I told him my decorating spirit was up. All that's left is the kitchen which when done will be filled with gingerbreads.
Brandy, I have heard that Twitter is where it is at to grow your blog, business, etc. Twitter confuses me.
Trying my best not to order Week Three Santa Sack at October Afternoon. Not sure if I can hold out though.LOL
It is probably good for DH also to get up and around a little bit. Does he have crutches he can use so he doesn't put weight on the foot getting from one place to the other? He could at least go from his bed to the couch.

I think I'll wait until tomorrow for Santa Sack. If it's still available, I'll get it.

I have news! Starting with today's challenge, I'm a new member of the Design Team for Creative Card Crew. Check it out! I met Mari, the Owner, up at the Copic Workshops. She told me about her challenge blog and that they had a Design Team Call. At the time I wasn't really interested because I already was on 2 DT's although I was considering not continuing with Sunshine Mail and won't go into the why's. A couple days after I got home, I went and checked out CCC and it looked like a great group. One of the DT members from Perfect Sentiment is also on the Team. So, I decided to apply and I heard back from Mari right away saying that I was on the Team! She's super nice and very organized which is the way I like to work. As it turns out, for now I'm staying with Sunshine Mail. I only have to do 2 cards a month for each of the other DT's so that's not too bad. I can get away with doing only 1 for SM if I don't have time, so I'll see how it goes, but it's going to be fun!

What's this about a small business? What are you going to be doing?

We are going to slaughter our pumpkin tomorrow and bake and freeze pumpkin bread for Christmas cheer. DH and I do this every year, and freeze pumpkin to make pies and goodies all year. When I do the WOYWW post this week, I will have a photo of our pumpkin. Kind of like a before picture.

Hey congrats Maggie! I did visit your Blog, and I see that you visited mine too. You are so good with those Copics, everyone would want you on their DT. I went to one class about 5 years ago, and kind of learned the basics. But you know how a beginners class is, not much. I didn't want to pay to do the classes in depth.
Hope everyone is doing well. this evening. We are waiting for our 9:00 college basketball game. At least it isn't midnight again. That about killed us a couple of weeks ago.

Oh almost forgot! My friend was released from the hospital this afternoon and headed home with her three daughters. The tumor they removed was benign. It was between the brain and the skull. They said no radiation, but will do aother MRI and a Cat scan in a week. Thanks for your prayers! Praise the Lord.

That is such good news Sharon! I hope her next MRI is clean.

How big is this pumpkin? Or did you means to say pumpkins?

One of the kids brought home a pie pumpkin last year and we made a pumpkin pie. I was surprised by how easy it was.

Thank you Sharon. Yes, I did get around to visit everyone's blogs yesterday. I try to keep up, but sometimes it slips away. There are lots of video classes on YouTube that you could watch. Some of them are really good and prepared by some great instructors.

So glad to hear that your friend got to go home with her girls and that there is NO cancer!!!!!!! Praises and thanks being sent up for her. That's great that it is just in time for Thanksgiving. What more could she be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you too!

I had a busy day at the office and got to leave early. I was glad I did because as I was driving home, I passed a Sticker Stop and realized I had to get my car inspected before Sunday. Yikes! Did a quick turn around and went back. It would have been a quick stop, but one of my fog lights was out and had to be replaced. He told me later that they didn't have it in stock and had to go get one and then it was the wrong one so had to go back and get another one. I guess I was there for about an hour. Then had to go by the grocery store and pick up a few things for tomorrow. Got home about the same time I would have normally, but at least I was able to get those things done.

Off to make chocolate cupcakes and turn them into turkeys!

It was an 18 lb pumpkin. My husband got on the scales with it. We froze 10 2cup bags from it. Each bag will make either 7 mini loaves, or 2 large loaves, or 1 large and 3 minis. And I roasted the seeds. Uhm, good.

We had our turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and vegies tonight. I just roasted a turkey breast- still took over 3 hours, only 5 lbs!

Tomorrow morning we will go over and watch the parade with Mom and I will put up her Christmas decorations. Then we can come home and have turkey sandwiches.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Shhhh. I'm 52. Our daughter is 30 (we share the same birthday). This may be our last chance to be together for the holidays. She'll know when she gets back on Dec. 16th if they are moving to WA State some time next year for a job relocation.

Regarding my envelope from Brandy... Her post label dated Oct. 5th had been covered up by a new post label dated November 7th out of Ft. Worth. So something happened to the envie between her PO and the Ft. Worth PO
