Painted some pumpkins to put on the house!

Thankfully hubby cut them out for me, now if I can just get him to do the sanding too!!!

Then I finished a Maxine Thomas Design on a shovel too! I added a cute green homespun bow after the photo was taken!!

Our Trip to the Apple/Pumpkin farm

Saturday we went to the apple orchard/pumpkin farm with a group from the church! They had a corn maze where you had to find boxes and stamp your card and then at the end the kids got a treasure out of the treasure box! I still need to take a picture of Jason with the treasure he choose, it surprised us all!!

The kids had a ball! Too bad Mom and Dad choose not to go!! They snooze, They Loose!! LOL!

Raggedy Ann and Snowman Class

This is the shovel I will be teaching later this week at Michaels! it is auctually a combination of three patterns by Renee Mullins! She is an awesome designer! I was suppose to have another class this week but no one has signed up for that class, oh well . That class is below.

The Great Pumpkin

I could not resist doing a scrapbook layout of this photo Maria had of Britton!I just love the photo of him!! So I painted pumpkins on the page since I had nothing that looked right with the tractor!! Course the same day I finish the layout they send me pictures of him and his daddy carving a pumpkin!!

Feeling Sorry for myself

I have spent way to much time since this move feeling sorry for myself!! I had a nerve block done again a few weeks ago and ended up very sick and even ended up in the hospital getting IV fluids for dehydration. BUT now I am feeling better physically then I have for months!!!
So I need to praise God for that and show HIM that I appreciate my health by using it!!
So how can I use my health for something good! Certainly not by sitting around moaning about being stuck here in Mn.
I found out about the possibility of teaching somewhere where I would be my own employee and I may do that but I am still thinking about other possibilities. In the meantime I want to find ways to reach out to others and find friends and help others.

I know that I refuse to become as depressed as I was before because I know that will just make me more ill physically too! God is so faithful and He deserves me to give my very best to Him just as He gives me His very best!!

Went to ladies retreat! Miss CNY ladies retreat!!!

I suppose if I never went to the Central New York districts Ladies Retreat then the Minnesota/Iowa district Ladies Retreat would seem great but when you compare the two, it is like comparing steak and hamburg.
I did the crafts this year for the ladies retreat which starts 7 pm friday and ends at 12 pm saturday. I went last year also right after moving here and so this year I made a decision, there was an annoucement that they are starting a committee to plan the retreat and if I want it to be better, well then you know what I have to do!! YEP YOU Got it! I volunteered to be on the committee!! Suzi wrote back saying we will love having you as part of the committee. I hope so since I have lots of ideas brewing in my head! Course lots of them come from good old CNY!!!
