Baby On The Way!

It's been a busy month.  Daughter2s baby shower was a success.  Lots of gals here and she received some lovely gifts.  I'm hoping this one was her favorite...  ;-)

Seven weeks to go now....wowzers!  She had pregnancy photos done today and here's the sneak peek!  Courtney, the photographer, is a girl she works with.....great job!!

I haven't done a speck of Christmas decorating yet.  I hope to do some this week before Hubby is home next week.  FB reminded me that three years ago on the 27th I had my tree up!  Oops....a little later this year!  I've barely done any Christmas shopping either!!!!!!  I was thinking the other day that I haven't worked around Christmas for a few years....I think that is why I was more organized...or less organized now!  And you would think working with children I would be in the mood....nope....not yet anyway!
She's no help!  Hahahaha!

I Spoke Too Soon But Let's Talk Coffee!


I found this picture on Facebook.  I don't know whose it is...but I loved the saying and the colors and that it talked about coffee! When I was young I loved the SMELL of coffee but could not stand the taste!!!  Now I love both!!!!!  I don't drink a lot of it....most often just one cup in the morning but sometimes I'll have up to three cups a day depending on my work day, if I visit a friend or have one come over.  These cups look Debbie Mumm-ish to me....does she still design fabric??  I was a Debbie-Mumm-aholic when I first started quilting!!!!  I could spot her fabric a mile away and could not wait for anything new to come out!!!!  I loved her books and patterns and collected them as well!  But wait....I meant to tell you how our beautiful fall turned to winter overnight! It's cold right now...and white!  Not a lot of snow yet but what came down mostly stayed!  I knew it was going to happen one day...it is November after all, and this could change too.  I'm not ready...and I say that every year...but I don't want to be cold!  I don't want to shovel snow! AND the snows appearance has not made me feel even slightly Christmas-y!

I spent the weekend at arenas....both days.  One loss and one win....and the win was against her old team in their arena.  ☺️  She plays again this weekend, against her old team, but I may be home preparing for Daughter1's baby shower on Sunday.  I've got some quilting to do!!!! 😉

A Beautiful Fall...So Far!

I'm not doing very well keeping up with my blog.  Some days there's nothing to write about....a lot of days!  My life isn't exciting...at all....and for that I am thankful, really!

I made a quick stop at Sally Ann the other day and found a couple of treasures!!!!!!  A handmade rug (love it!!!!  The dogs love it too!) and a lamp....$5 each!  Makes the living room even cozier!

Fall has come in nicely.....the other morning there was a tiny bit of ice on the lake....

The geese couldn't get to that corner!  LOL!

But today, while leaving for Calgary, this was our temperature!

Our little Pixie has put on a bit of weight in a relatively short period of time.....she was due for her shots so off to the vets we went.  They took blood to check her thyroid although we didn't think there were other signs that it wasn't functioning right.  She got a nice purple bandage which had to stay on 
for half an hour.....she soaked up all the attention and even pouted a bit!!


Turns out, she just eats too much so we came home with some new food which she can only have 1/4 of a cup per day!  Lord this will be a fun job....not!!!!!! 

I need to start making a Christmas list and get working on it.  There were a ton of Christmas craft sales in the area this weekend but I didn't go to any.  My problem would be buying for me and not for gifts plus, I didn't want to go alone.  I need to find a partner in crime who will go with me!! I should be making my own crafts for gifts...but Daughter2 has hockey games both today and tomorrow and every weekend this month.  I'm feeling like avoiding gift giving this year!  I wish!  I wish it was just about family and food and fun!  But it's not.......so starting to getting organized I must!  Seems to come faster every year!!!!

Next weekend is Daughter1's baby shower.  There will be a ton of people here in our house I don't know but she's excited and I can't wait for it to be over!  Hahaha!  Then the weekend after, Daughter2 can move into her new place which means the cats can too!  Woot woot!!!!  Something to look forward too! Hahahaha!  Hubby will be home then too.  :-). 

I think it's time for bed.....I bought a couple of Christmas magazines today...maybe they will help!
