Cooling Down

  I think we lucked out on the foul weather.  Granted it did get colder and we had a wee bit of rain.  But the skies are clearing and it's in the 60's outside.

On Wednesday 22 November Jim had his GI tests and all appears normal.  A couple of polyps were removed and biopsies were sent off. Follow up after Christmas.  Once we left the Diagnostic Center he wanted to eat so we popped into BJ's and had a late lunch.  But clearly this was a mistake.  Neither of us enjoyed the food nor did we eat all our meal...and alas some beer remained on the table when we left.  When we got home Jim took a much needed nap!

On Thanksgiving we had leftovers that Sonsearae sent home with us.  Still tasty!  Watched some football and just relaxed.

Over the weekend more rainy weather and the temperatures are feeling more like winter.  Sunday we spent time with Sonsearae and Chris.  She fixed meat loaf and mac and cheese for the men and for us a vegan Caesar salad.  I brought a vegetable soup.  We suffered through a Saints game where they lost to those dirty birds!

Some of my soup stayed with them and we came home with a couple of meals for Jim.  Win win!

Today I have to have my blood drawn.  Cross your fingers!  Hopefully the labs will be better than three months ago.  Next week I'll see my doctor.  Pretty sure she'll be disappointed

Handmade cards because:

                          No one displays an email on the mantle
                             or shows off a tweet on the fridge
                      or saves a Facebook post in a box of treasure

                                          Total for 2023


                     Are you keeping track?  How many cards will I end up making this year?  If you guess correctly I'll send you a dozen cards.  Just leave a comment

This beautiful blue card was inspired by Lorraine Tierney.  Magical Meadow stamps

Countryside Inn DSP, Lasting Joy Stamps and an easy template from Jackie @klompenstampers

All About Autumn challenge card.  Moody Mauve is the main color used

I used the Riverbend card kit from Club Scrap for this challenge card...and it won!

A sympathy card using All About Autumn.  I thought the image showed the path ahead 

Inspired by Lori Pinto these monochromatic cards are done in Moody Mauve and Misty Moonlight...which do you prefer?
