It's November Already??

Hard to believe it's November! I lost a week or so while I was off taking care of my mother. She was very sick, but recovered wonderfully and is back in her home, feeling tons better. What a relief! It's hard to keep track of time and days while in the hospital... hard even to remember that the rest of the world keeps going about its business. Hence I have lost some days and find it hard to realize that it's November.

I did manage to visit briefly with my niece and her kids on Halloween night. Now that was a wild scene! Here's the youngest of my niece's children. She's 18 months old and a true "punkin." Sweet as can be!

Had a nice visit with Karen, too. Hi, K! Thanks for the tour of downtown. On my drive home today I stopped at Aunt Annie's (quilt shop) and forced myself to buy only three fabrics. I love that shop! I could easily have bought 15 fabrics if I had no self-imposed limits (guilt, budget, fear of debtor's prison, etc.)

We get an extra hour tonight, so maybe I'll go to bed early and take advantage of that hour for some extra sleep. Usually I stay up extra late and use the extra hour (and then some) for sewing, and then end up more tired than ever. In my old age I'm trying to be wiser. Nighty-night!

What a cutie!

I can say "cheers" to your enjoyment in "Aunt Annie's." I've only been there once...but oh, how I'd love to go back. So many treasures! And Lucy is one of a kind, isn't she.

Truly one of the cuter punkins!

Glad to hear your mother is out of the woods and you're getting back to normal. November is a rather rude awakening, isn't it?!

Hi, I love the punkin pic as well. Pleased your Mum is back up and about, must have been the good nursing.
Church bazaar's are hard to pick for what will sell, i would have bought all of them!!!
I have found the same thing, which is why I tend to stick to things I am happy to be left with and things like the chooks that sell cheap and don't take too long, cheers, tracey

Wonderful news that your mom is home and doing so well. I'm glad you're getting in some sewing this weekend. You earned it! ;o)

Sorry to hear that your Mum has been unwell but very glad to hear that she is home again.
