Good morning all!

Doing a load of laundry and barely awake at the moment. Want to finish addressing my cards today.

Catherine, those are two good funnies!

Sharon, thanks for the alert about Sally not being around either. Continued prayers.

Jayne - nice to see you drop in in spite of your sinus issues. Hope that clears up fast.

Kathy, were you a good patient and took it easy?

Hi, Gracie, Melody, Victoria, Dagmar, Ann and all.

Aloha Sistahs!!!!

Glad to hear your home Sis Kathy and it went well. God is great!! Mahalo for his greatness and loving kindness in bring you through this so wonderfully!!

I'm here with a lil of what I know of our sistah Sally.....
She is now at a rehab with her mom .... forgive me... with so much going on with me on my end I totally didn't think to share my email from her with that bit of info.....I will contact her and see if there is anything she would like me to pass along other then what I am aware of ATM.

Sis Catherine give my nieces a big huge and even a bit tighter for Catty for her being sad ATM. Growing pains at her age can be a Debbie downer for sure..

Love kisses and hugs to all!! Sorry have to run .

Took me a moment to figure out ATM! LOL. I get money at the ATM.
Hi Hawaiian. Nice to hear from you.
Catherine, I love the funnies. And yes today, I got out of the car at two craft stores! I bought a small tree to set on table, as we are not putting up a tree. It was 60% off, but DH still thinks that is ridiculous. Maybe he won’t tell me to rid of everything anymore, like when we moved. He doesn’t realize how expensive it is to replace. And the older stiff was probably better!

Catherine, i still have my iPad. Just can’t post my blog from here or comment on blogs.
BTW, I posted photo of my new toy on my blog, but it isn’t scheduled till 4:00. So you can go see it then, if it worked. I knew I wouldn’t have my laptop so tried to schedule my weekly post ahead of time. I did it once before and it didn’t work.

I got home at 1:30, and left at 8:15 this morning. I was at dentist over two hours for cleaning and X-rays! Then took laptop in, and ran errands. Now DH wants to go out to eat. Ok, with me. Now the big decision! Where?

Cracker Barrel, Sharon?

I have been busy making spaghetti sauce for the slow cooker, and zucchini, cauliflower and onion soup. The recipe states leeks but I did not have. Made it before with chopped leaks I got at Costco and it sure was good. Hope subbing a regular onion will be alright.

So, I have been busy, but not doing the cards like I wanted!

Ok Sistahs I just got done texting with Sis Sally and here is what's happening I copy and paste her texts the best I can here goes.........

You can tell the alpha sisters anything and everything. I called EMS on November 22 at 6 in the morning. Her legs swelled up really bad. She started hallucinating and had pain all over her body. She lost all of her strength. Couldn’t do anything and was making no sense. They did all kinds of tests and said everything was normal. Wanted to release her and follow up with her doctor on Monday. I refused.

They admitted her from Friday night till Tuesday night. At that point they transported her to a rehab facility. We’ve been here since. Still have no idea why. She is gaining her strength back and can do for herself with a few verbal cues or a walker for balance. She is forgetting and mixing things up. I have to repeat things often and at times makes things up now. She is 89 but I do want to keep her at home until I can’t.

My mom was talking and singing with my dad. He has been dead for 17 years. She kept telling me that he was standing next to me. For me to hug him. She was seeing and talking with all of the dead relatives including my brother who passed away last year. She said God was talking to her and telling her everybody’s mission. She told me to tell her I love you and goodbye. So I did. She was acting like a little girl. It was so weird.

More......

My Mom’s feet are still swelling and then going back to normal at night. My own feet will swell a bit during the day with all of the water I drink. But it is a slight swelling. My Mom’s feet look like they aired them up with an air pump.
Do send my best to the girls. I miss everyone and hope to be back soon. Fingers crossed.

And also this...

Still in rehab. I am so tired. I sleep on a recliner and most of the time I don’t sleep. Tomorrow they do a home visit to see if mom has everybody she needs. Hopefully she will be discharged Friday morning or Saturday. I have not had any paper therapy. I have not sent a single Christmas card or done any Christmas shopping. I am the only one she wants here and she doesn’t want to be left alone. I do tutor Tuesday and Thursday from 12:30 to 4. How are things with everyone. Say hello from me and pray that my stamina and patience lasts.

Thank you do much Vickie! I will keep Sallie and her mom in prayer now that I know how to pray specifically. I appreciate the update as I was worried. Now we just need to hear from Kandie!

I'm waiting on DH to get home. My demo friend made us supper and he stopped by to get it on his way home from work. I'm starving!

Victoria, thank you so much for the update on Sally! So hard to see family not doing well.

Kathy, how are you feeling, besides starving? Although an appetite is a good thing!! LOL!

Now I am hungry for spaghetti, thank you Shirl!!

Better. I think yesterday was the worse so far. I took ibuprofen around 11:30 today and nothing since. I just move slowly and I'm good.

Forgot to mention that demo friend also sent along the new catalog and sale-a-bration catalogs! Catherine might like the new music stamp set! It's called Music from the heart And inspired by Dawn Olchefske, a million dollar seller.

I hate the layout of the new catalog, though. It opens to the long side rather than like a magazine. Its much harder to handle.

Wow! So much chat today!

Thanks for the updates on Sally, Sis! So sorry she has to deal with all that and I'll definitely add them to my prayers.

Tired, just relaxing now! Hugs to everyone!

Finally home, it has been a long Monday and I'm not feeling the best this afternoon. I'm sure it will pass.

Glad you are doing better, Kathy. I wonder why they changed how the catalog opens? That sounds like an annoying change!

Vickster, thank you for the update on Sally and her mom, now I know how to pray.

Ann, sorry you didn't get enough sleep last night, hope tonight is better.

Sharon, your blog post worked. I went and checked out your photos of your new tool. It looks like a marvelous addition to your tools for scrapbooking (and can be used for cardmaking too!)

Yum, Shirl, sounds tasty. I'm sure a regular onion instead of a leek is tasty too.

Enjoy your relaxing, Gracie!

Catherine, sorry you're not feeling well. Hope you feel better tomorrow! I have an upset stomach tonight and have been spending a little too much time in the bathroom! Yuck!

Hope everyone else has a good evening and wakes up feeling terrific tomorrow! Hugs to all!

Jayne, were you on that Island in New Zealand, where the volcano erupted?
Wow! What a deal!

Catherine, I hope you are feeling better.
Hawaiian, you are so good keeping in touch with different ones, with so much going on in your life too. Thanks for the update.
I wasn’t good for anything later this afternoon and tonight.
We went to Brahms and got a surprise. It is only second time we have ever gone there to eat. We order hamburger combos. And they said no extra charge, we could get a shake instead of another drink. So
I had a German Chocolate shake. Sooo good with pecan halves in it; actually stopped up the straw and I had to eat it with a spoon. Now I didn’t eat it till I had finished my meal, which I couldn’t finish. Good hamburger with lettuce, tomato, bacon. LOL. Yeah, I am so bad. Anyway I didn’t finish the hamburger or the fries. But I finished the shake. I never knew Brahams was that good.

Ann, Is DH ok, after his accident? No after effects? Hope you get a good nights sleep tonight.

On that note, good night sleep tight.

Night all!!

Yes, DH has not complained about anything yet! But he was so restless in the early morning hours I wondered if he was hurting!

Catherine and Gracie, hope you feel better tomorrow!

Sharon, that burger sounds amazing!

Sleep well all!

Good morning! I think I will do some baking today, for DH. He wants cookies! My “Cookie Monster.”
I put up my tiny truck and put lights on it and along the railing to downstairs, also in front of our front window. Bi put a wood snowman on porch, but I haven’t found my poinsettias yet to put in a pot out there to keep him company. I looked everywhere and also I couldn’t find the hanger to put over the door to hang the wreath, which I did find. So, I put the wreath around the candles on the Kitchen Island. Looks good. LOL
My craft room is a mess, I should clean it, then I would be inspired again.

Plan: bake, clean, craft?

Have a good day. I hope everyone is feeling better.
Prayers for our missing ones,

Today's plans are the same as yesterday's. Eat Sit repeat. I need to come up with some Christmas gift ideas so that when I do go out I won't be out my normal two hours. I'm thinking I'm going to Walmart at the wee hours of the morning and hoping I can ride a Kart. That would help. But I need it to be at a time someone can go with me. I am not going anywhere by myself at 1 a.m.

Good morning. I had to get up way too early this morning to meet DH at the auto repair place at 8 a.m. He's having work done on his brakes... the remainder that we didn't have money for previously.

Ann, I hope you got some rest last night.

Catherine, are you feeling better? I've had a touchy stomach for the past week and now I'm fighting a UTI. I know cranberry juice is one solution and lots of water. Any other tips? I was up to pee 5 times last night! Sheesh!

Hi Sharon, I have a big to do list too! Not sure what's going to get done today because DH is getting another load of gravel and I'll be shoveling (in between running to the bathroom!)

Kathy, probably a good idea to have someone go with you to Walmart at 1 am. I always loved to Christmas shop at midnight when there's hardly anyone else shopping. Much less stressful. Keep resting and healing!

Good morning Melody! I hate when you have to get up and get going early in the morning. I'm definitely not a morning person!

Good morning! It is sunny and cool here this morning (what the locals would call cold but I haven't yet invested in a real coat, haven't needed one since I moved to California years ago). I have an adorable dog on the couch beside and the silhouette of a kitty in the window since I let Wesley out of her room this morning while I'm getting ready for work.

Gracie, I hope you are feeling better this morning. My stomach was also upset yesterday evening, it seems to be fine so far this morning but I haven't had anything yet except for water.

Sharon, I've never heard of an eating establishment called Brahms. I saw that name - it immediately made me think of music! I'm glad you had such a good dinner!

I love the look of the wreath around your candles - beautiful! DD2 was in the mood to decorate last night and I looked around and just said, "We need to clean the house first!" I can't handle decorating the house with it messy! We still haven't figured out how to have a tree with Wesley in the house.

Kathy, yes, please do not go out at 1:00 am by yourself! Eat, sit, repeat sounds like a good plan for you. I'm sure you are getting impatient with it.

Oh yay, Melody, an early morning for something fun like...auto repair!

Ann, I hope last night was more restful than the night before and that your DH is doing well.

Oh no, Gracie, I just got to your post for today. Sorry to hear, cranberry juice is the solution I know about. Thankfully that isn't a problem I've had because I'm not fond of cranberry!

I guess I should go try breakfast and see how that goes.

Morning!!

Oh Gracie, so sorry to hear that you have a UTI! Yuck! I do like cranberry juice though! But in moderation! You could try the cranberry capsules too!

Melody, so sorry you had to be up so early! Car repairs are a must thought so nothing happens to you and yours!

Yup, I think my DH is waiting till he is on vacation to take his car in now for a new pumper! He is off the last two weeks of the month! Always hate it that he is though because he gets in my way when I am baking cookies!! The ones he loves he will eat a full pan as they are coming out of the oven. My plan - make his cookies last!!

Sharon, I do love your plan for the day!!

I made 8 small loves of banana bread last night! Shipped four off to my oldest son this morning! (youngest son works for oldest son!)

My plan this year is to try and make cookies this week and freeze them for Christmas.

Has anyone ever done that for the holiday?

With having the grandkids on the 20th for the weekend I need to have things done early!

I have made cookies and froze for Christmas, but depends on which ones. These cookies I am making, say they keep in freezer up to three months. But they won’t make it to the freezer! I have never made these,a recipe from Pinterest. Hope they are not a flop.

I'm am in the final process of a huge card! A tutorial by mixedupcrafts. It is 7x7 1/2. The nice thing about making the envelope for it is that I have the 123 board now and measurements go to 6" on it, where they only go to 5 on the punch board. So I didn't have t adjust the way she did?

Ann, they were peanut butter chocolate cookies. It called for cocoa, Giardelli semi sweet 8oz. , and chocolate chips. I didn’t put chocolate chips in, but the whole two cups of pb chips. They are more like cake than A crisp cookie.
But they are chocolate for sure. It was supposed To make two dozen only. I ended up with 30 cookies. The cookies looked a lot better on Pinterest and sounded so good but not quite the texture we like for a cookie. The recipe used a lot of chocolate and only one cup of flour and the butter and vanilla and eggs were the only liquid. Ann, You are the baker you can probably figure out what was wrong with The recipe. Anyway Larry likes chocolate so he will eat them.

Ann, yes to freezing cookies. I usually make them as gifts for DH's brothers. We never know ahead when we are getting together, so I bake their cookies and freeze till I need them. I've done chocolate chip, peanut butter, oatmeal, and probably some others.


I also freeze muffins all the time, because I'm the only one here to eat them. That way they keep fresh - I just pop one in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds.

Speaking of banana bread. Yesterday DD wanted to know if she could use 4 bananas instead of 3 that the recipe called for. I told her absolutely, since bananas aren't all the same size, but it might make the batter take longer to bake, because it might be more liquid. Then she realized that she didn't have a loaf pan, so I suggested muffins. She was all for that.

Melody, how do you wrap your cookies in the freezer? And have you frozen ones with powdered sugar on them?

I have not frozen cookies, I usually spend the 10 days prior to Christmas baking like a crazy woman!

I don't like the new catty either. It is too long in size. Hopefully we will get used to it? It did not even inspire me to take a peak through either. But I am sure I will get around to it. When you mentioned the music set, I did want to see what you were talking about.

Vickster- thanks for the update on Sally. Mucho appreciated!

Ooh,. now, I wish I was there to sample those cookies, Sharon. They sound good. I will wait till Ann weighs in on what you were disappointed about.

Muffins? I love muffins too! Love banana bread. I love it all and that is my problem, lol.
