Check out this giveaway! It ends November 30th… so hurry!! 🙂
Hello! Hope this finds your week going well thus far.
I talked to my mom, after I got off work today. She told me, they were going to get to go home this evening, and they were waiting on the paperwork. The doctors found a vein they can use for surgery, but are going to treat my dad with medications for two weeks. He was put on bed rest in the hospital, in the last day or two, because he could have a heart attack at any time, so he is also limited at home as well. He goes back to see the doctor in two weeks and then, I guess, they will go from there. I’m glad my parents can go home, as it will be more comfortable for them.
Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts and they mean a lot. Please continue to pray for my parents as they continue on through the steps the doctors have given them.
My dad is still in the hospital. He is doing okay, so far. They did tests yesterday to see if he has enough veins left, to do another bypass surgery. However, the doctors will not confer with one another until Monday, so… he is there over the weekend. My mom is holding up okay. It’s just hard to wait. You know? I will keep you posted, the more I learn on his status.
My daughter and I went flea marketing today. She found two movies and a book. I found two books, two book marks, to match, and a pretty Christmas cloth to place on my piano or my cedar chest. I got it for 50 cents, believe it or not. My total flea market purchase today was $6. I thought that was pretty good. 🙂
Today was the day Autumn moved in, I think. It rained all day and when it stopped, a cold front moved in. I felt it when I stood outside, at the town square with my husband, waiting on the parade and the lighting of the Christmas lights this evening.
I also tried to get a pic of the courthouse, all lit up. This picture doesn’t do it justice though.

1 cup powdered chocolate drink mix
1/2 cup powdered non-dairy creamer
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Hello! Hope this finds everything going well for you and yours. 🙂
Today, was a day of mixed feelings. On one hand I was very happy at the next four days being off from work and planning to get some project done and planning the meal for tomorrow.
This afternoon, I received news that dampened my spirits. I found out my dad had a spell last night, where he felt someone was setting on his chest. My mom called the doctor, who decided to admit to the hospital for monitoring and to set up surgery. A week or two ago, my dad was told that three of his bypasses were 100% blocked and the other two he has were blocked as well. He had bypass surgery 12 years ago.
Today dad is doing fine, the tests they ran on him at the hospital this afternoon, all came back good, but they decided to go ahead an monitor him overnight and my mom and dad are waiting to talk to the doctor/surgeon.
So, I’m waiting to see what happens next.
I have full confidence everything is going to work out fine. I’m a little worried about my mom. I know she is stressed to max, which is very understandable.
Please remember my dad and mom in your prayers.
My family -all of my family, full of love and inspiration
My friends, those I see every day and those I have here. I’m thankful for your support and encouragement, every day.
the beauty God created for us in nature.
My home, vehicle, clothing and food.
My job, though it gets stressful at times.
My joy of quilting and creating with my hands.
Music… I can’t imagine not having music.
I came home for lunch today and saw a pleasant surprise.
In my driveway stood two friends, talking to my husband. I haven’t seen them since Easter. Keith and Sherri moved out of state, shortly after Easter.
Talk about a hi-lite of my week! Though I didn’t get to visit with them long, it brought joy to my heart to see them again.
Just wish I had my camera ready and with me at the time.. but I didn’t have my camera and the battery needed to be charged, to boot.
Today, I delivered the quilt I’ve been working on to the friend I made it for. I always get a little nervous when I present a quilt, in fear it will not be good enough, but most of the time my fears are for naught. Today, my friend was very pleased with the way the quilt turned out. That made me happy.
Today, has just been a good day full of surprise, blessings and laughter.
Well this is a short week for me at work. I have workied my normal hours today and yesterday (8-5), but tomorrow I go in at 730 and leave at 230. I’m getting out early. EARLY!!! 🙂 Then I’m off for the rest of the week.
I’ll be taking down my fall decorations in my cubicle tomorrow and will most likely take my Christmas decorations in next week.
My hubby, kids and I are thinking of forgoing the turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving day, as we have celebrated twice, as a family, and I have three times, in the past week. I think we are going to go with mexican dishes. I hope to try some new recipes and will share the best one, for my weekly recipe this week.
I’ll let you go for now…
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
God bless and keep you,
Today, my day was slept away, by being on sinus pills. I was awake for about four hours and in that time I was able to visit with family and enjoy another Thanksgiving meal, though I didn’t eat much.
I woke up about an hour ago… Hungry! 🙂
So I fried up a little ham, scrambled an egg and placed them between two slices of David’s homemade bread with a piece of cheese. Then nuked it for few seconds to melt the cheese. Very tasty.
A little something I wrote this evening….
Happy memories and new ones to share,
Around the tables, voices chatter,
New stories and old are replayed.
Knowing this chance of storytelling is rare.
Savory dishes are displayed.
Intimate the gathering, full of love and friendship.
Nothing is more precious than this.
Grateful, am I, to have experienced it.
