Where does the time go?

Gosh, I can't believe I haven't wrote anything for so long. I have been busy with doctors etc. the last couple of weeks, and then the holidays. And my son had an accident...just not enough time in the day. I keep waiting for the snow so I can get in the mood to decorate. I did manage to get alot of shopping done, of course that is one of my favorite hobbies. Thanks to everyone who has left a comment. I really appreciate you all. I love to read your blogs and I do read them every chance I get. I am really addicted to the blogs now. All I gotta do is learn some more on how to do mine. Gotta get busy, so later....

GO STEELERS!!!!


TIME TO GET A MOVE ON.....

Gosh, I can't believe I am so far behind in everything. And then the beautiful weather we are having here in W.Pa. It was an unbelievable 72 here today, just really gorgeous. I did manage to get some more things done outside. Another one on the way tommorrow, but I bet it won't be long before the snow flies. I think I have spent more time with the doctors and being in the hospital thaan with my family lately. I sure am hoping for some good results soon. I am really anticipating Thanksgiving. I can't wait to start cooking, something I love to do. And then the biggie, Christmas, all kinds of good baking and decorating. I have already started planning my cookies etc. to bake, even got some shopping done. I am impressed with myself, to say the least. I am working on a couple of swaps right now and they are coming along good. I am really enjoying them. I have some pictures I have to get around to posting about some of my swaps and a couple of giveaways I won. It was just like Christmas. I guess I am still a kid a heart. I was just really thrilled with everything and just kept showing my kids and grandkids till I think they wanted to lock me in the closet. I will try and post the pics this week, if it is the last thing I do. I just really want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. Well, it is time to go off to dreamland for now....till later! Hugs!

This is my oldest daughter Erika , and my son-in-law Sean...Mom and Dad to the Five

SO SWEET....SO PEACEFUL


THE FIVE ANGELS


IT HAS BEEN A ROUGH 2 WEEKS...

I sure hope things get back to normal soon. I have had my surgery for the second time and it did not go any better than the first. So I will know Thursday what is going on with that. The weather has been so nice the last couple of days, a bit chilly, but it is Fall. I sure dread the winter coming. The old flu bug has hit our area pretty hard this week and they are talking about closing the schools for a week, as there are so many out. I am going out junkin tomorrow for awhile if I can get around on these crutches. What a pain. I won a couple of giveaways and I still have not posted pics of them. They were also fabulous and I promise to post in a couple of days. It has been hard to get things done with a cast on and it just really stinks. Got some new pics of my Grandkids so I will put a couple on. My daughter downloaded these, otherwise I wouldn'thave them.

My friend the bear has not been here since Saturday, but the neighbor saw three little cubs and the Mama up the road yesterday. We have an awful lot of them aroung here. I got some great stories about them I will have to tell you sometime. I am slowly catching on to this, thank heavens. I have entered several giveaways and joined two swaps. It is so much fun. There are so many great people out there and you are all so nice. I love reading the blogs. I actually spend more time than I should, but hubby drives truck and I don't see him all week usually...so....I am either on here or doing some crafts or prims(after I do my cleaning...yeah, right! )

This is my daughter Erika ,and Morgan. Things got a little hectic before he was born and she had to go into surgery for c-section. All are doing well now. He was born on 9/18. I have been pretty busy since then. We have been waiting on the test results for my hubby, and it has been nerve racking. (found cancer during routine colonoscopy) He had surgery and they got it all. I thank God everyday he had the routine test. It saved his life. The results came back yesterday and there is no sign of it! Whew... what a relief!!! Now it is my turn again. I had skin grafts a couple of weeks ago and the darn things didn't take. First time in 8 years. I am gouing back in Monday to have them redone. I sure don't look forward to it.

BABY BOY IS FINALLY HERE!


My waiting is over and the baby weighed 7#12oz. His name is Morgan and he is so beautiful!!!

MY PET?


This guy stopped by to see me today. He is one of the ones that come quite frequently. Isn't he cute? Or maybe it is a her...don't want to get that close. It doesnt apperar to be that old. Last year we had one that was close to 500 pounds. They don't bother you if you leave them alone. I sure wish I had a pic of the big one. He is on video.

STILL WAITING,,,AND WAITING...AND WAITING...


I am still anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new grandson. He should have arrived by now, but still no luck. It must be getting closer cause my daughter can't even sit or walk. She went to the hospital yesterday, but they sent her home. I really think it will be tonight. Hopefully! The weather was really cool here today; you can almost feel autumn in the air. We sure didn't have much of a summer to begin with. Even closed the pool early. I am planning on a few yard sales tommorrow and a couple of consignment shops if the baby doesn't show up! These are my four other grandkids. They are my sweeties. WOOHOO!!! I uploaded a picture, It is my first. Not the one I wanted, but i did it.

CRAZY SATURDAY

What a month this has been! It is so busy with school starting . I sure do miss my grandkids during the day, popping in every few hours. It is starting to look like fall outside, with the leaves changing, and lots of acorns falling everywhere. I am patiently waiting for my daughter to have her baby. which is due tomorrow. (a little boy called Morgan) I really can't wait. This will make five, 3 girls and 2 boys. The joy of it all. I seriously do not think my other daughter will ever have any. My son....no way. He likes the bachelor life. I have been busy getting decorations out for halloween. I signed up for my first swap this week. It sure sounds like alot of fun and I cannot wait. This blogging is so new to me and I hope I am doing it right. I will upload some pics soon. I spent the day thrift shopping and went to goodwill. I love to look for old items to fix up. Found several prim items which made my day. Then I hit the antique mall. I could spend forever in there. It is just so awwesome. I finished up the day by stopping at the amish for some baked goods. The lady that does the baking is just the sweetest person, and she makes the best frosted pumpkin cookies in the world. Till later.

TRYING...AND LEARNING

I am just now learning how to do this blog. So please bear with me ....it may take awhile. I guess I just need a place to go to let out everything inside. To write about my life, country style. I hope to make some new friends to chat with and to share things with. I love to follow blogs about prims, country, and everything in between, Just life in general. I live in rural northwest PA . It is a beautiful part of the country nestled in and around the Allegheny National Forest in between Pittsburgh and Erie. (two great cities) When I figure out how to upload pics,I will. Till later.
