What a welcome gift!

Goodness!  We looked out our front window to see my dear friend with such a treat! 

She brought me a fluffy warm blanket, delicious turkey soup, this gorgeous kettle, towels, wax melts! The soup was still hot! 

I'm so grateful for all my wonderful loved ones! 

This has been a busy month.  I made many journals to sell... and a couple for gifts... And for the first time ever I have already bought and delivered all my Christmas gifts.  I still want to get my son some fun things and mail a few gift certificates in my Christmas cards. I had planned to get them ready,  but it just didn't happen.  I didn't know how I'd feel after D-day Wednesday... But I am going to say I'll feel great!  Sure! Might as well think that,  huh? Everyone loves to have gums scraped! 

I think I'm done with the house with decorating... I didn't do very much at all. 

Just relying on a few pretty areas and the true spirit of Christmas. 

Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving.  I made the usual sides and baked a tiny ham. We enjoyed the day and several meals of leftovers! 

Today should be the day my crew comes to take care of some trash, get rid of my old couch and love seat, and do a few chores! I can't wait for the extra room. My furniture was mostly bought on Swapshop, and it has seen better days.... twice! We aren't replacing it right now,  but I'm so sick of it! Nobody comes to sit on it anyway! 

See you soon!

...And she's over!

Cards for Halloween
Hello, lovelies! 
Can you believe it? Beautiful October has come and gone!  She was especially lovely here in Missouri... but I imagine the same is true where you are...
I guess the Halloween needs to come down and make way for the turkeys! Or perchance some winter and Christmas? I'm trying to be busy all through November and get a lot ready for Christmas because I have a date with a dental surgeon the 30th of November to remove all my teeth... all... I'm to go without any until the new year... 
And this is to be ready if or when I need a heart valve replaced.  I'm just a wealth of great plans here at Meadow Lane,  huh? No wonder I can never sleep!
I've had a lot of fun this month with writing and planners, porch visits, special little gifts... 
And of course,  Callie. 
Neither my son nor I  have felt really stellar, so I just didn't post.  However,  November is calling!  Have a good one! 
Did you have trick or treaters? We had zero... I really missed them.  But now... there are five ... ahem! four little sacks of treat begging for someone to love them! 
I almost made it through this post without commenting on the cost of  maxillofacial surgery! Holy cats! Something like a car... 
Have a fun November. October will be back next year!
