Good Evening Ladies--Happy Sunday Night! We are in the middle of Trick or Treat here--and I sure hope more kids come as we have a huge bowl of candy. We are in a subdivision and many parents drive ATV's and pull a trailer of kids around.

I had very fun day on Friday going to some quilt stores with my niece. I got a couple of quilt kits and also two table runner kits. Yesterday and today was spent getting more things done outside ready for winter. I am sure it is coming sooner that I really want!

Have a great rest of the weekend and a wonderful start to the new week!

Happy Birthday, Jeanette!! I know your best gift is having Brock home Rest up - all of you!

Shel, my goodness! How scary! I'm so glad she's okay, yes, it could have been a lot worse .... God is good and she had her guardian angels around her!

Good Morning Stamping Friends! I am going to be in my stamp room all day today and hope to get a couple of swaps done along with a few DT projects for the upcoming weeks.

I hope you have a great day and a fantastic start to the new week!

Happy, happy birthday Jeanette. Hope you're having a wonderful day. So glad Brock is home now. Hope he recovers quick!

Shelly, that's terrible about the roll-over! She could have been hurt so bad! Thankfully all is ok and only another car is needed. That you can replace - just can't replace that daughter!

Happy Birthday Jeanette! I saw on FB Brock gets to come home- Yeah!

Hope Houston area friends are not getting flooded out.......

Maxine- hope that headache is gone to stay!

I am heading to Iowa tomorrow to see Stephi. The car did get totaled, so we are going to be looking for a vehicle- she does not think she needs one- work is within walking distance, we'll see...... You are so right Lynn, what a mighty scare! I have been praying and reading about Guardian Angels lately- Stephi's was sure on overtime and Thank Goodness!

We have a murder Mystery party Friday nite, then I will head to Ky to see my parents for a few days. I have not been there since August. I am not sure how much blog hopping I will get done, but I do need to get around to comment, so will head there now!

Hugs to all
Shelly

Hello Fellow Stamp Addicts!

I finally made it to the thread... I heard Smoochy was looking for me.

I wish I could read back and catch up on what’s been going on, but I’m too far behind and too exhausted to even think about doing that, so I’m just going to jump in here and move forward. I hope that’s okay.

Please let me know if I’ve missed something important.
Leaving a trail of friendly (((HUGS)))

Hello friends.

I also saw on FB that Brock is now home. How wonderful for Jeanette & her DH...AND BROCK!

I gather that Shelly's daughter had a scary car accident, thank God she's ok.

I wish I could do more than pray... and then I feel bad for saying that because I know prayer truly is the best thing a person can do. I just want to put feet and hands to those prayers, too. My friend, I am a phone call or text away if/when you need it. (((HUGS)))

Jeanette I hear your heart when you wish you could do more than pray for Darlene - I too am in the same position.... I am sure heaven is being bombarded by prayers for Darlene and Amanda, which is all good.
I went to the specialist on Wednesday and one place on my face is benign, the other (where I had a cancer removed) has him a bit puzzled and I am on 6 month follow up.
But I am now on the list for a cubital tunnel release.... Loosening a nerve being pinched around my right elbow. Don't know when that will happen.
Today we have some decent rain, we have been just getting cloud and drizzle and then sunshine and wind and the gardens were getting dry, already . I planted out 20 mini sunflower seedlings yesterday so they will love the rain .
Hugs and waves to you all from down under.

He currently has a rental and is shopping around for another car. He got approved for a small loan so at least our savings won't take a big hit like we were thinking it would. This will be his third car in 5 years so let's hope he can get something that will last a little longer! He commutes almost 50 miles round trip daily so he puts a lot of wear & tear on a car, unfortunately we just can't afford something much newer with lower miles

Two of my mom's older sisters are not doing well. One has hospice care at home. We knew she had health problems but the extent was unknown and I guess exacerbated quickly in the last week. Another aunt is having swelling issues and the doctors don't know if it's her lungs or her heart. She's not in any condition to coming down from NY to see their sister right now, at least it doesn't sound like it. My mom isn't dealing well with the news and is not being very helpful to my cousin who could use the support. My cousin lost her father last year and it's almost 4 years since her sister passed away from Crohn's complications. My aunt here lives with her granddaughter (the daughter of the cousin that passed), so I know she has to be beside herself right now

A few weeks ago I extended an invitation to one of my stepsisters and her family to come for lunch on Sunday to check out our new deck. We didn't get a chance to finish it before it started to get cooler and I didn't want to wait until the spring. We may end up eating inside if it's too cool so I have to clean the main floor just in case.

I'm on vacation the third week of November and I can't wait. It's going to be a crafty staycation. Let's hope I can make it til then without going too crazy!

Hugs to all!
Sorry about Mike's car Kristi, and glad that he wasn't driving it on the highway at the time. Did he find something else yet?

That's so sad about 2 of your aunts being ill. Must be hard on your mom to have her sister's sick like that. I don't know what I would do without my sis. I'm not close to either one of my brothers. How did the visit go with your stepsister and family? I hope you had good weather. We had rain most of the weekend, so would not have been good to be outside on a deck.

Wish I had a vacation coming up. I hope you're able to do lots of fun things staying home or working in your stamp room. I have just 4 days at Thanksgiving and then taking the week before Christmas to go to my DD's in CA. I'm also taking off the Monday after to recuperate after being gone.

We were home for about an hour from Colorado and got a hysterical call from Stephi. She was out in the country in Iowa and was going at a high rate of speed.....and swerved to avoid 2 deer in the road and went off the highway and the car flipped over completely- landed on wheels, but the towing guy said it is totaled. She had her seat belt on, and just has whiplash..... Prayers of Thanksgiving- could have been really bad........ I will work on getting her in to an ortho MD on Monday so we can get her into Physical Therapy for that neck...and we may have to look for another car, we'll see......

I wanted to run out there, but she was 5 hours away and it was almost 10PM...... SO, I wanted to go tomorrow, and she said NO!!! She has alot to do, and I am not sure the muscle relaxants will allow her to do that...... Maybe next week one day.

Count your blessings instead of sheep ladies!!! I know I have the past couple of days : )

Waving hello to all and sending Hugs!

Shelly
Yikes! I saw the photo on FB this morning. She must have been really shook up about that. I probably would have had a heart attack if that had happened. So scary flipping the car. Glad she was not seriously injured. How is she feeling? Did she get in to see a doctor for her whiplash?

You'll trick or treat early up there. How'd it go?

Glad you had fun at the quilt show. We have a big quilt show down here in H Town every year. It starts today and goes through Sunday. I have seen photos of some really incredible quilts. Some people are just so talented.

We had a lot of rain down here, but the flooding was minimal around town and none at my house. One thing that I don't have to worry about. We're supposed to get some more starting tomorrow evening into Saturday and finish in time for the kids to get out for their trick or treating.

I guess it depends on what else she may need a car for - shopping, groceries, visiting friends, etc. Do they have good public transportation there? Would she have to be out late at night without a car?

The Murder Mystery party will be fun. Enjoy the time with your parents.

So good to hear from you Darlene. I hope there is positive news about Amanda. Still have her in my prayers.

Sending up prayers for you also Maxine. I hope that the face issues continue to be benign and that you can get that elbow taken care of sooner than later. It's just one thing after another.

I bet the sunflowers will be so pretty when they grow and bloom. Do you raise them for the seeds or just for the enjoyment?

It's been crazy busy here at the office this week. Boss is finally out of the office with a client at a meeting this afternoon, so it's quiet. Wasn't so quiet this morning with paralegal. I could have strangled her. Ugh! Some people. I do have dinner plans tonight with a couple of the Single Chicks. We didn't really have anything scheduled, but one of the ladies called me this morning and wanted to go out, so I invited a couple of the others, only one so far that can make it. I've eaten out a lot this week - still celebrating last week's birthday. Have family lunch tomorrow at The Cheesecake Factory and I hope the rain holds off until after that.

I had a strange thing. Both my DD in CA and a lady from Fairy Ink were sending me packages and they were both told by USPS that it was undeliverable at the address. My DD called the company she ordered from and talked to them and they are taking care of it. The other one from Fairy Ink will be returned to her and then she'll have to mail it out again, so that may take awhile to get to me. It was a Halloween swap package. I hope my Halloween candy doesn't get all yucky in its travels.

Any plans for the weekend???? None for me this weekend, so I'll have lots of time to do stuff around the house.

Maxine:
I sure hope that you have success with both medical issues.

Thanks everyone for the continued prayers. Amanda is not getting better, slowly getting worse. This is the saddest thing I have ever experienced.

Default Hello!

Hi,
Dropping in to try to catch up!

Sorry to hear that Amanda is not improving Darlene : ( I cannot imagine watching my daughter go thru that- Bess You my dear friend! May God give you strength, and hoping you can find a way to turn this experience around to find a way to help others....Maybe write a book........

Maxine- Glad the lesion was benign, and hoping you do not have to wait long for the procedure. It sounds painful : ) The sunflowers sound so cool- and I love the tree you posted on FB today : ) Does that tree stay in bloom all summer?

Maggie- so fun to keep on going out to dinner- has to be hard on the diet!
That is so weird about the packages. Was the paralegal just chatty?

Barb- post pics of what you are making/quilting!

Stephi seems to be doing OK. She is not sure she needs a car to get around Dubuque- we'll see. I was able to drop in and see a friend at Hobby Lobby- works there- while in Iowa, and had lunch together. We met in Technique Junkies in 2004, and it is just the 2nd time we met in person.......

Hugs to all
SHelly

Hello Fellow Stamp Addicts!




Darlene, I am so sorry you are going through this. Horrible to even think of the pain and heartache you are experiencing. Keeping you in my prayers!

Shelly, still so thankful that Stephi is okay. To think how that could have been a much different story makes a heaviness in the pit of my stomach!

Maxine, I'm glad the one spot is okay, but I'm sure it's disconcerting to have questions about the other... as well as waiting for the upcoming procedure.

Kristie, I am so sorry to hear of the car troubles and hectic work stuff going on. Hopefully things will smooth out soon!

Maggie, I hope you enjoyed the chick's dinner last night!

Barb, my Thursday WAS tremendous.... because Brock's follow-up doctor's appointment went well! And we went out-of-town/state for dinner and to pick up DH's new suit.

CONGRATULATIONS, Kelly!

Oh, and for those of you who like to keep up with my DD's life, she has a new blog post...

How lovely for Brock to be giving candy away. We were out and had the gates shut and windows closed etc, but there were still some come onto the property (the neighbour told me) and I don't know what they did but we came home to a very jittery cat . He has settled a bit now, but I was cross.
Then we have Guy Faukes on Thursday with fireworks galore - another unhappy night for puss.
Not much studio time these days as we seem to be having numerous visits from and babysitting for grandies

HI Stamp Addicts! I'm going to wave and wish everyone a Happy Halloween! And Jeanette, I assume you mean Shelly *wink!* (what would Barb saying about age and confusion?!!)

I'm sorry to hear about Amanda. My heart aches for you, Darlene

I'm still WAY BEHIND in blogging, but if want to see a really cute blog card that trumped mine - I've been outshined! (in a good way!)

Scarecrow cutie alert! *Sandcastle Stamper* : Sending Harvest Blessings!

We leave in an hour for a Harvest celebration, then a Boy Scout Trunk or Treat, then off to a Halloween (non scary) party for school friends - whew! Stay safe, all!

Checking in since I've been so bad about it.

Darlene, I know this is such a stressful time for you. Thinking about you daily!
Kelly, loved the card your son did! He's very good.
Maxine, so sorry about the elbow! Know you're not looking forward to that one at all.
Maggie, we've had UPS pop up and said we didn't exist either on deliveries. After many phone calls realized they had a new driver and he couldn't find his way out of a paper bad!
Jeanette, know that Brock will have fun tonight! So glad he's ok now.
Shelly, I think I'd have to have a car to get around in. Maybe Stephi will change her mind on that. Again, glad she wasn't seriously hurt.

Waving hi to everyone else.

Well, first of all (for Darlene). Jim's the same and we just keep going on day to day.

I know y'all have seen all about the terrible weather in Texas - and sure Maggie has gotten some of it too. Night before last we had a tornado. The little town that's about a mile and half (as the crow flies) from us got a direct hit. "Town" consists of about 6 very old brick buildings in a row. The tornado dipped down and wiped out three of them. Pretty much nothing but rubble now. Also hit a couple empty buildings in town. Bank, fire station, and all that type of thing got it so bad. Anyway, it was so early in the morning that no one was there so no one got hurt - thankfully. We got 4 1/2 inches of much needed rain - and not a drop of wind out here at all!!!!!!! Weird! My son started calling here about 6:00 that morning since he'd seen it on the national news, to make sure I was ok. Since the power was out he was calling the cell phone. I crawled out of bed about 7:00 and noticed he'd called like 6 times - and I went into a panic thinking something had happened to him. LOL!!!!!!

Then last night another round of the storms moved through. At 2:00 this morning our house took a direct hit of lightening! We thought the house had blown up it lit up and looked like it was on fire! Knocked out power, phone, internet, TV - you name it. Still don't have the home phones. We did have the power done pretty early. It hit a transformer right outside the bedroom window.

Anyway, we're fine and didn't have any flooding. Just way too much drama for us for the last couple of days! LOL!

Good Afternoon--Happy Sunday and November 1st!

It is a beautiful day here--sunny and actually warm. We went for a hike after church and I put away all of the Halloween decorations and brought out the Thanksgiving ones. We are to have temps in the high 60's this week, so I am sure I will be cutting the grass--and this time I do hope it is the last time.......................

Packers play tonight against the Broncos--they are both undefeated at this point, so it will be a sad evening for one set of fans and the team! I hope it is not here!
