A Wedding

No, not mine!! I'm an old married lady of 32 years!! One of my beautiful neices is getting married next weekend and my daughter and I are going together to the wedding in New Jersey. Actually, my daughter will be in it. So I'll be taking alot of pics. I am really looking forward to going to the wedding, and especially going with my daughter! We are going to have so much fun!!!
I've had alot going on lately with my Dad, but things are better there.
I've been trying to get some work done on my swaps. Working on my November Sweet Goodness Swap now. I've pretty much finished with the Vintage Christmas Stocking Swap. That was fun.
A Halloween party last weekend and another one this weekend.
Lots of things to do, but it's so fun putting costumes together (I love Halloween!) and getting ready to go to New Jersey! I get to see one of my sisters!!
Well, that's all for now.

Nice Surprise At The End Of A Tough Day

I recieved the nicest surprise yesturday at the end of a pretty tough day. It was a day of going back and forth for tests for my Dad and with his fractured back it was pretty hard on him. Not a fun day. But I was soon surprised by a wonderful package from Sondra at My givaway prize came and really made my day!!! Thank you so much Sondra!!! Everything is so awesome and obviously made for me!! That was so thoughtful and nice of you! I really love everything. I can't wait to try out some of those mexican recipes! My husband is gonna love that! MMmmmm,with a cold margarita!! He doesn't drink, so I 'll have to have his!! So, today I am trying to catch up on some housework and get ready for my oldest sister to come see me this weekend . Her youngest son is coming too.

Holiday Things

It is really starting to feel like the holidays are near. I just love it! I've been working on my holiday swap stuff and having alot of fun with that. Thinking about gifts for the grandkids, that's always fun! But along with the holidays comes the other things. You know , like the things you HAVE to do, instead of the things you WANT to do!!! There have been alot of those lately.
My Dad has a compression fracture in one of his vertabraes. So his back has been giving him alot of pain. He hopefully will be able to have a procedure done to make it all better. But till then-- well, it's a little stressfull. He is living alone. Has help that comes in every day, and that helps alot. But I sure will be glad when he is better.
I got a new camera! I'm still learning how to use it, but I can't wait to see if it takes better pics, I really need it to. I'm not a very good photographer!!
I bought my husband a beeeeeautiful knife for his birthday from a fellow Etsy seller . The name of his shop is "Bullseyenam", and he does awesome work!! I gave it to my husband 2 months early, I'm so bad! But I just couldn't wait!!
That's about it for today.
Have a great weekend!
