Ahhh, I am feeling so much like my old self again.  Now we can get back to our regular scheduled life around these parts.  I gathered some of my favorite photos from the last month.  Kinda surprised myself tonight looking thur these that I was able to even take some photos due to feeling so crummy for the last month or so.  But wow, life has been busy so lets catch up, shall we?
Above, we have the first grandbaby in the making shot.  Baby will be a girl, named Lillian Rae, and she should be here in about three weeks or less now.  Here is a quick little story.  I was coming in the door to the house a few nights ago, and the youngest daughter came out to greet me with Todd the dog and said to Todd the dog "hey there is grandma" and I looked back to the driveway to look for my own mother not knowing she was calling me grandma.  It took me back a little bit that I was the grandma here and not my own mother.  I better get used to this granny thing fast, huh?
 Some shots of the baby shower that took place at our home last month.  The clothesline idea was mine to try and save on the decorations cost as we are all on budgets these days, right?  Below is my attempt at a diaper cake.  It was fun to make and I had extra help from the ladies in the family.  I think they did more on this than I did that day so I just got out of the way after rolling up all those diapers.
  Went on a double date to First Fridays in the Crossroads at the beginning of October.  Had fun with my brother and his girlfriend.  It was their first time going, so hubby and I got to show them around some of the galleries. Good times had by all.
 We even went camping a few weekends back with my sister and her gang.  We took the four wheelers out to a riding park down south and had a great time.  Me being a girl and all, I would much rather take a walk in the woods than wrangle a four wheeler around, but the guys love that stuff in our family.  Here I am making hubby do a photo shot with me when we took a break on the side of one of the trails. 
And now that everything is alright in my world now, I am going to get back to my happy place of sewing and knitting.  Thanks for letting me share with you all, and please let me know what you are up to making these days too.  Happy crafting everyone!

Nope, nothing to show

I have not forgotten about my beloved blog, just been under the weather for far too long.  Off to the doctor tomorrow (again more like it) to see if we can figure this out.  It is a sinus infection that is not going away with normal antibiotics.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that I get some better meds and start feeling like myself again.

Because I have projects that need to be completed but I am too worn out after working all day at my normal boring office job.  Wish me luck and hopefully I will back here in my happy place.
