Happenings

The feet have been x-rayed, examined, and scanned and proper orthotics ordered.  The elbow has been manipulated, x-rayed, and examined and shot full of cortisone.  Eyes get examined soon. So if I can just manage through the weeks of temporary orthotics, the wrist splint and counterforce brace, and patiently wait for new glasses I should be a new person!  I've also got a reworked desk (love that Tramp!) and a new mouse and keyboard. Love my Apple devices, but the one thing they are not, is ergonomic.  So I'm two fingers tapping away on the iPad which is possible with the splint.  (So is typing...sort of...but it won't make anyone feel sorry for me. ;-))

So. The recent happenings in pictures. 

Stardust asked to have a "fancy day," so it happened!


The state fair happened.  Crazy foods, ribbons and rides.





Halloween happened.  And birthdays for two cousins.  With "tricky" candles!







A new cousin happened (now to finish his quilt!)..


New sewing machine happened!


And some fun sewing. 



Leaves are happening.  And happening....and happening....


Fun days.  :-)


Especially when a great big fire truck unexpectedly stops and a suited-up firefighter hops out to give a delighted small boy a hat!!!

Wow - what a time you have had, good times and bad, with the bad getting better, we hope.

But please, please, please.......write another blog about your State Fair ribbons. Something like that really deserves telling us all about, don't be shy.

Wow, sounds like it's been a super busy Fall season at your house. Take care of that elbow and don't wear it out too much using your new sewing machine. ;-)

Busy! I love dress pretty day, how fun. Shoot, I forgot to look in the cases when I went to the fair, and I was even looking for your work. I am so pleased for your win, well deserved!
I'm going to start going to storytime at the library regularly after Christmas, so hopefully I'll see your there?
