Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my blogging friends and their families.

Whatca Workin On Wednesday and an Update

Wow it's been awhile but I actually have something I can post for Whatca workin on Wednesday. Hard to believe but true.

I'm still making doll dress for my grandma, two down one to go. Also I'm working on a couple of gingerbread men for a friend.

Last week Sandy posted some easy candy canes so I thought I'd give em a try. I'm still working on getting them wrapped up but it's coming alog pretty quickly and I should be able to get them aged sometime today. Thanks for the idea Sandy, your a doll.

I'm working on some knitting too but didn't take a picture incase the relative I'm knitting for decides to take a peek at my blog.

Now for my kitty update. Thanks to everyone for their kind words. Whiskers is doing much better. As it turns out he did not need to have his toe amputated. The vet just stitched it up, however he may not be able to retract his claw on that toe. We are not sure yet and wont know til his bandange is removed. He is starting to walk a few steps at a time before his back legs give out but a few is better than none. He may never completely walk as he once did only time will tell. I'm just happy he survived all this. He is a permanant indoor cat from now on.

My furnance was an easy fix thank goodness. A wire had come loose and my grandpa was able reattach it with no problem. I was so glad it cost me nothing to fix it.
Well I must go get ready for work. Take Care and Have a Happy Thanksgiving

Didn't mean to dessert you.

Sorry for not posting since Monday but it's been a little crazy here. On Monday night my cat got hit by a car or at least we think that is what happened. We found him lying in the yard unable to walk. We took him to the vet and he has a broken hip and a toe that will need to be amputated. It was a little touch and go Monday and Tuesday we weren't sure he was going to live. The vet put him on an iv and kept him over night. When I went back Wednesdy to pick him up he was still pretty weak. He is getting a little stronger each day. He still can't walk but he can move his back legs so we are sure that he will recover but may always walk with a limp. But right now it's like taking care of a infant. We have to feed him every few hours and change his pads when he potty's and boy does he let you know when he's done his business. And he has meds hje has to take two times a day.
I have to take him back in a week so the vet can look at his toe and make sure it has to come off. He didn't want to do any surgery til he was stronger.

And as if that was not enough, the furnance has decided to take a break. Let me tell it's cold in my house. Not quite a cold as outside but cold enough that I am sitting under blankets. I called my grandpa to come look at it but he's not home right now. So I just have to wait til he gets back to find out what the problem is. Brr, hurry home grandpa.

A little of the white stuff.

Woke up this morning to snow. Not alot of snow, it's what a friend who is from up north(she knows who she is :P) would call a light dusting but it's snow none the less. When the boys saw it had snowed the first thing they asked was "Do we have a 2hr delay?" I had to laugh. Kids are so funny. It's still snowing but the ground is too wet for it to stick. It's been awhile since we've had snow before Thanksgiving and for once I don't mind.

Ok now on to other business, well not really it just sounded good. I have tons of house cleaning to do today and craft thing to work on so I better get my butt in gear and get to it. Have a nice day.

Bet you thought...

I had abandoned you. In a sense I did. These last few weeks I just didn't feel like myself. My creativity or my desire to create had pretty much gone by the wayside. I had no deisre to do anything but lay on the couch when I was not at work. I didn't even feel much like being online or even around my friends. I have read none of my blogs and I have not even gone to the shop. I told no one about what I was feeling. I guess I just had a little bit of a mental melt down. But then it could also be a result of what is going on in my life and it just finally caught up with me. Without going into too much detail I will say that my DH right now is not able to drive so I have to take him to work every morning. This means getting up at 5 am after getting off work at 11pm the night before and sometimes not falling into bed til midnight. Then having to go pick him up from work and take him to meetings 4 days a week. So I am always running and it seems I never have a moment to myself lately and I guess I brain just shut down and decided it was taking a break from doing anything more than it had to.

But the last few days I have finally started to feel human again and have started to work on things again and I must say it feels pretty good. When creativity hits it sure comes back with a vengance. Because this week I made a baby blanket and started knitting on a Christmas present. I am also making doll clothes for some prim rabbits my grandma has to give to a couple of the great- grand daughters for Christmas and I have started making things for my Secret Santa Swap (yes I've fallen behind on that) and I am working on a few ornies for the shop. WOO what alot of stuff but I feel I am up to it. I am so ready to get back to creating.

Now I am off to get caught up on my blog reading which will take me a week to do. LOL Have a great day. I know I will now that I feel like myself again.

One of these days.

Soon I hope to be able to actually set down and post. But right now tings are just way too busy. I did manage to get the sewing machine fixed. Just had a piece that was loose and DH tightened. Thank Goodness it was an easy fix.

We did find out that DH is getting laid off the week of Thanksgiving. He will be off for 2 weeks, work for 2 weeks then be off for 2 more weeks. So we are scrambling to get as much Christmas bought while he is still working. Then I am going to get as much made as I possilbly can.

Well I am off to get ready for work. Again my apologies for another short post.
