When a Husband is in charge!!!!

As many of you know, my back surgery has kept me quite out of the normal.  This week I got the heads up from my Dr. so I am slowly trying to do more and more things.  One thing that had really bothered was the kitchen sink. Keeping it nice and clean and sparkling was not a priority of my DH. I never mentioned it because he was truly doing everything and taking wonderful care of me.  So on Wed. I decided it was time to clean my sink. Look what I found......... This was growing in the area of the drain just below that little thing that drains the water.. We finally identified it as a pumpkin seed trying to grow in my kitchen!

There are so many sad things going on in the world today.  I hope the humor of this does not offend anyone. Even in times of trouble we need to find something to smile about while sending our thoughts and prayers to all the people directly affected by the tragedy in Paris.

Return to the Relm of the Living!

Hi there cloud friends!  I am so happy that I  finally have the energy to blog.  I could write blogs from now till Christmas about this ordeal and back surgery but I have decided to just get on with life.  I will say that I will be in lots of PT, etc. probably for most of the winter but at least the worst is over! I actually did finish the Halloween project for my grandson and another small piece. We had ordered the frame early so they got the PS design in time for Halloween. If you have read my blog, you know that finishing is not my strong suit.  So now I have quite the pile of Halloween/Fall pieces to finish.  I guess that breaking my back does give me a good excuse for not getting my finishing done.  I have now turned to Christmas stitching and will show some of that in my next post.  Thanks again for all the well wishes and prayers.  It all meant so much to me!

 I thought this was a great design for a family with children! Plus it was mainly for Caleb who is 10 years old. All the orange was stitched with metallic floss.  I found that a big pain but the effect was worth the effort.

 Another ornament to finish before next Halloween!!

 Thanks to my absolutely wonderful DH, we did celebrate Halloween.  Our DD came over and helped hand out the candy.  So the evening ended up successful!

Thanks again for all your wonderful support!!!!!
