Have not shopped yet - there is a local (Nz) store having a sale so may shop there as the shipping will be less.

Waving at you all from Down Under

We all squished into my CRV, Ray drove and my brother in the front, and my sis and Mom and I squeezed into the back.

Mom is having higher number with heart failure, so having to give her meds still for her B/P and fluid levels- then we have a meal with loads of salt in it. (She looks fine- just has a little wheezing- so I think the subtle symptoms would be hard for a non-medical person to pick up). She has another Thanksgiving meal on Thursday!

Maggie- I am not sure if I already told you this- I call my girls Petunia. I love that name for the kitty. Hope the mama takes good care of her while you are away.

Boy- the colder weather is a shock- so chilly out! I am not really ready for snow yet either- brrrrrr!

I was able to catch up on some stamping- Yeah....! I have another couple of swaps to complete, then will have time to stamp for fun : )

I am quickly becoming a football widow- I did not notice it too badly until this weekend- LOL My husband and my brother are both VERY into sports...guess that is what it would feel like if my stamping friends or sewing friends stop by.

Shelly
I saw on FB that you mom was having some heart issues. I hope she's okay and can enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.

I hear that Petunia is doing well at home and Frosty continues to watch over her. If she's using the litter box that I put out for her, then that would be great - all set and ready to go.

I hope everyone has a great holiday!
I've done some online shopping today for me! I did put a bunch of stuff on my Amazon Wish List and looked through the rest of the families' wish lists. I usually wait until they all do their shopping and then see what still needs to be purchased.

DH has had another chest infection, and this one did not respond to the usual meds, so when we saw the respiratory specialist yesterday they changed the meds, and if they don't work it will be IV's once a day at the local ED... oh the joys.

To add to it DD is off work as her two have really bad tonsillitis, and her DH has been really ill too - never mind that she is off colour also and generally run down. never rains but it pours at the moment.

On the bright side I may have squirreled enough $$ away to be able to use the Black Friday sales I may just have to go have a look at my bank balance and then go on line sale-ing

Waving to you all from another wet day Down Under - at least it means I don't have to water the seedlings in the garden.
So sorry to hear that DH is having more issues with his meds. I hope these new ones will help him. Also sorry that DD and her family are all under the weather too. I hope they'll get to feeling better soon.

Have fun shopping the BF sales today. I looked at some things, but wasn't too impressed. I think it's nice to get to a point where I don't really need all that much, not that I don't WANT a bunch of stuff.

Great photo Kelli. We had an interesting twist to Thanksgiving. My DD bought dinner from a local restaurant - Lucille's. They have excellent food. My DD was also making a big batch of roasted veggies. So my SIL goes and picks up all the food and comes home and puts it all in the refrigerator until it's time to eat and thinking that we can just each warm up our plate of food. Well, he didn't read the instructions on each of the containers which said to heat each one up for 50 minutes. The green bean casarrole wasn't even cooked at all. So we ended up with a first course of roasted veggies and salad while the rest of the meal got cooked. Then we had the main course. We got 3 desserts: a sweet potato pie came with it and they ordered a pumpkin cheesecake and a snickers ice cream pie. I only had a small piece of the sweet potato pie after dinner and then had a slice of the snickers pie later that evening.

After our meal, they put together a plate for my SIL's mom and we took it to her in the hospital. She's still there. She is having the procedure to put the pacemaker back in her this afternoon and then they think they may release her to come here tomorrow which means it will only be overnight when we are both here together. I was in the upstairs room the first night because they thought she was getting out on Wednesday, but she didn't. I moved to the downstairs room for the rest of the week until tomorrow if she gets out.

After out visit at the hospital which didn't last too long because one of her other sons and his family showed up and it was too crowded. We went off to the movies to see Fantastic Beasts.

They are putting up their tree today and then will decorate it today/tomorrow.

Maggie, that's so funny about the meal... sounds like you made the best of it, though.

Maxine, I hope the local store has great buys for you!

Kelly, fabulous picture... and funny graphic!

I just bought a Prismacolor pencil sharpener and some singe pencils that I didn't have in my set. I've got the large set so not sure why these colors aren't in it. I've been working on a Kit & Clowder class using Prisma pencils. It seems for this one it's all about the paper that she used. My colors don't show up as dark as hers do.

It's it a bit stinky in here today! Tee hee! Hi Jeanette!

Maggie - how fun to get new pencils! I know what you mean about the way the color saturation is ... That's how I am with watercolors.

Maxine - bless you .. I know it's a major cost with shipping. I don't blame you for shopping local. Every time I ship or receive from Germany or England it's almost as much is the product itself! My last package to Germany was $33 - just to ship!

Default Hi!

Hahaha I have not had my shower yet....may be me that smells.......

Hello- I stopped by a few days ago, but could not type easily on my phone, so gave up!

We had a little excitement this past week. Mom had a rapid irregular heart rate (causing a little heart failure/fluid overload aka CHF). She was admitted to the hospital and was there until Friday. She was started on a new med that flips your rhythm into a normal rhythm. After the 3rd dose- yeah! She converted! The irregular rhythm has a stroke risk associated with it. I stayed at the hospital for the three days she was in - so nice to be home in my own bed!


My eldest brother from Ky had previously planned on visiting Friday-Sunday to see Mom. So, they came up and stayed in a hotel knowing Mom was not going to be too energetic to go running around. They also asked me to be with her all of the time- cause I know what to do if her heart acts up..... We mostly played board games- Farkle and Bingo. Also went to Panera to eat.


We did not go anywhere on Black Friday in terms of shopping, but I did order dies from DieVersions at 70% off. I have some Secret Santa swaps and they will be perfect for that.


All of your gatherings sound divine! I did go to my sisters for a Thanksgiving celebration the Sunday before Thanksgiving- so did not miss out on the festivities. My brother was here from Mass., so it was extra special- he stayed here for a few days.


So, today we are going to try to be creative up in my crafty room. I started commenting on blogs last night- need to learn to do that on my phone. I am almost done, but so hard when you miss a week- so much to see on blogs!


After my brother and family headed home yesterday, we got the Christmas tree up and outdoor decorations up and the lights working : )
Also, the Nativity set (my Dad made for us) is up and the light is on it.


Maxine- keeping you and family in prayers!


Maggie- that is a stitch about the dinner. I have the big set of pencils as well. Prismacolor discontinued the Neon colors and added more colors a few years back, so I had to add the new colors as well.


Kelly- love the selfie you took with the whole gang on Thanksgiving- so wonderful to have the family together!


Jeanette- your group holiday sounds like a great time!


Kristi- your pic on FB of you and your niece was so sweet!


Barb- hope your weekend away was nice!


Waving hello to everyone else!


Shelly

Shelly, I had caught wind of some of what was happening with your mom. So glad she's doing better now and home again! You must be relieved! And WOW! You've sure accomplished a lot in the time you've had.

Hi all!

Kelly, glad that you were able to find your way back to us here. I don't get unsubscribed, but every so often I have to log in again.

Shelly, I"m glad that your mother is doing better and that her heart got the rhythm back again. Sounds like you had an enjoyable time other than that with the family.

I need to look again at all my Prismas and see which colors I'm missing and order them from Blick's. They are only about $1.29 per pencil and they have pretty good service.

Hope you can get some sleep tonight Jeanette. I was up late last night until after midnight getting some Christmas shopping done with all the cyber Monday deals and I got some good ones. When my alarm went off this morning I felt like I needed more rest, so I reset it for an hour later. I usually have too much down time in the morning anyway, so I was only about 15 min. later getting to the office which was okay. I work through lunch anyway and make up for it. My boss was later than me since he had a dentist appointment first.

I need to go get ready for tomorrow night. I'm helping the Young Women at church make Christmas cards and I want to cut all the cardstock tonight and have it all ready for them. They are going to have to emboss the background, stamp a tree, put balls on it and put a garland on it and then cut out the image with a die, so they are going to be busy. I need to also look for some good Christmas sentiments that they can choose to put on the inside.

Hi girls, I have kept up with the chatter, but have been quiet, I know. I spent yesterday finally finishing my Christmas cards - die cuts over a painted background. I cheat and mass produce .

Shelly I am glad to hear your Mother is stable - what an up and down time you have had. Just glad you could still enjoy the time together.


Jeanette I hope you have a fabulous sleep - waking up at 3:30 a.m. is not my style at all.... cups of tea at 2:00 a.m. were bad enough!!


Kelly I am glad you made it back here - what a pain. I have to sign in occasionally, but that's as bad as it gets.


Maggie you sound as though you have been really busy - time to stay home and colour??


Kristie I hope you are well and crafting and not giving a free home to the bugs this winter!!


Barb you have been very quiet this week - hope you have not been dis-inherited by SCS!!!


I had better go and photograph my Christmas cards before dispatching them - I wrote the annual missive this afternoon, so that will have to be duplicated and tucked in to them too. I have three calendars to go overseas and I think I am already past the posting deadlines - never mind, they will get there eventually


Hugs and waves to you all from down under

Hello Ladies--remember me......................... I was unsubscribed from this thread and Jeanette asked me about it. I was also unsubscribed from a swap thread that I just started yesterday--when back three times to add names and I had to go to it from the link in my own siggy.......................

Our weekend was wonderful--great times with family in Wisconsin and Illinois! This week has been decorating and more decorating. Today is the last day of the transformation......... The main tree is done and most of the smaller trees are done too, along with the lights outside. We still need to add greenery on Saturday after roomie cuts some branches. The rest of the decorations will be completed and we can start to plan for our cocktail party Saturday night.

They did a great job and ended up making 24. We also had one of the boys with us helping and 2 of the adults. I made it into an assembly line. They had to emboss the background, do 3 step stamping of a decordated Christmas tre and then die cut the tree and put it all together. I was really surprised that they did it all in 1 hour! I did have them redo a couple of the Christmas trees that didn't come out looking good, but the 24 that were finished looked great.

I spent Cyber Monday night shopping! I was up until midnight getting things on sale and then I got a couple more gifts ordered yesterday and today, but I need to get my list out and see what else I need. I checked with my DD in CA. She says my SIL only wants some Gift Cards, so that will be easy shopping for him.

The kids are coming for dinner on Sunday, so I have cleaning to do and I'd like to get some of my decorations put up before that. I asked my DGD what she wanted for dinner since we are celebrating her birthday then. The actual day is today. She's making it easy for me too. I asked what she wanted for dinner and she chose spaghetti and meatballs. I buy ones that are meatless and they are really very good. I'll make a salad to go with it and have bread and fruit. She wants chocolate cake and ice cream for dessert, so that's no problem either.

Speaking of crazy, I hope you'll take a look at my new Christmas CraZy thread... a place to chat and/or participate in a rather unique sort of swap.

Maggie, your DD sounds like my kind of gal... I love spaghetti!

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!






FYI - today is a busy day (errands, wedding, Christmas parade, packing) and I'm heading to Chicago bright and early tomorrow morning (to go to a women's live audience thing - not really sure what it is, but I'm going at the request of our state Exec) and will travel home on Monday... so you probably won't see me again until Tuesday. Have a GREAT weekend!!!

Oh Jeanette - you can't help but travel, can you? Hope you have a safe and enjoyable time, even if you don't know quite what you are going into.

Kelly I hope you have a great weekend and Happy Birthday to your DD


Maggie your dinner menu sounds great - hope it tastes as good as it sounds


Barb I trust you haircut is better than the last one I got - my usual hairdresser was away and the substitute, although experienced did not cut it how I like it....


Not far off heading out to church, then hopefully an afternoon in the studio as I have three birthday cards for next Saturday.... three generations of my family - my Aunt, Brother in law and son in law, and once there were four, with DH's Nana also sharing the day!!


I got a bit burnt yesterday as I was out weeding, and then in the afternoon we had afternoon tea with family - outside, with no shade

Good Afternoon--Happy Sunday. It is snowing out today--and is very pretty as it is not blowing at all--just gently falling. We are to get a couple of inches during the day. Our party was nice last night and the last guest left at 12:30--so a bit of a late night. Great food, fun conversations, but the Badgers did lose the Big 10 Championship game that we all were watching-so that part was not fun. We have no plans for the rest of the day, just watching football and watching it snow! Have a great rest of the weekend!
