Almost Monday!

How quickly these weeks seem to be going by! I have a huge sale in November and the weeks are just flying by with time running out! I didn't really apply myself until about a month ago so now I pay the price...sewing all the time! Oh well...thats how my life is. Put things off then work my butt off getting caught up!

Saturday we went to watch Alexis do her cheerleading....can't believe how she has changed! I never thought I would see the day she would get in front of people, let alone cheerleading!! She is so pretty too and the tallest in her group. We are so proud of her!

I had to laugh at her sister, Ashlyn. I asked her if she would want to do cheerleading someday and she said...maybe, but probably not! I wanted to be an artist but I think I just want to help animals! She loves them and someday should go into that field. Of course she is a great artist too!

It was such a nice day compared to the game I went to a couple weeks earlier. It was 106 degrees in Redding and the poor cheerleaders just about croaked from the heat. Brian brought the umbrella so we stayed fairly comfortable...but just plain nasty!

After we came home from church....we heard a knock on the door. Rhonda was there and asked me to come out to her car. She bought me this beautiful mum!! It is so pretty, and in a few days it will be georgous!!! That was so sweet and thoughtful of her! While I was taking pics I thought I would take one of my impatiens in the front yard. They aren't as pretty as other years but have filled in so quite colorful.

Last week I received a wonderful box full of goodies! Our WSOAPP group did a swap and my partner sent me this wonderful array of items. I LOVE the little santa...buttons which I love, candies, everything!

They say tomorrow is a chance of rain!! I really doubt it will but will be enjoying the day of cooler weather!! Hoping to get alot of sewing done!!

Busy Weekend!!

Gosh...where has the time gone! I can hardly believe it has been so long since I last wrote. This past week was the best of that our son-in-law, Brian, has a clean bill of health from his cancer! For those who have followed the blogs which have mentioned him, he has gone through some very rigirous treatment since the first of the year. Last week he went to his dr in San Francisco and they said all was clear! We are all so thankful and can only praise God for this wonderful news.

Yesterday after going to church and seeing a play in Sacramento at the B St Theatre, the family got together at the local mexican restaurant to have a small celebration of the Great news!

Today was our granddaughter, Ashlyn's, birthday. We went to the local pizza place for their great buffet. Of course, I ate waaaay toooo much!!! Guess Weight Watchers will have to wait this week. I am sure I gained a few # between mexican and pizza!!! Anyway...after the pizza we went to Rhonda & Brians for ice cream cake and then played Apples to Apples..then a game of Pinocle. Was a fun day and the girls love playing games!

I did manage to get this little witch in my WSOAPP shop but most of my time is taken up sewing for the big sale in the fall...the Christmas Goose. I try to get a couple hundred items made and think I have only about 100 made so as you can see have lots to do!
Will try to do an update on things around here. Brian goes in for a recheck (scan) every few months. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. They certainly were answered!!
