Haven't Been Like This Since I Was 6!

I was sitting on my sofa reading blogs last Sunday night and all of a sudden I had the worst pain in my left ear. The kind of pain that actually makes you say "OUCH!" out loud! Do you know what I mean? Later, in the middle of the night, I woke up with the worst combination ear/throat pain I have had, since I was 6 years old! That was when I had to have my tonsils out. So, that was the start of doing nothing but laying on the sofa and sleeping. Everytime I would get on the computer to read blogs, I would get dizzy and throw up....not good! So, now I am catching up and boy there is alot to catch up on! Linda's having a baby or rather her son and DIL are! Lol! Katy found a catalog I haven't seen in awhile. Jenn's husband loves snakes.....eeewww! And sweet Lauren is missing her PawPaw so badly! I'm glad that I am back....just reading all of your wonderful little stories makes me feel better! Now I know, alot of you like a little pic with your blogs that you read, so I thought I would throw in a few pics of my fall decor. Just some new things I got and a few older treasured pieces.

This crows on the pumpkin is something I got from a real nice lady on Ebay. I love this is huge!

This is a ceramic scarecrow my mom made in 1984! I love it! I wish the pic was better.

This is my stained glass pumpkin I got from QVC. I have had this for about 3 years. It is really nice at night it gives off such a glow. Oh, and that plant is one my mom passed on to me about 7 years ago. She had it for about 40 something years! I just found a pic of it she took in 1968, when it was blooming. I have yet to see it bloom...I guess I just don't have the touch! Lol!

This is my new crockery pumpkin I got a few weeks ago on a road trip with my neice Ellen......that was a fun day!

This is a pic of my shelf behind my sofa with my new wood plate that has The Lord's Prayer on it. I got this at a prim store that is in a mall that we like to shop at.

And this is a closeup of the plate. It is my new favorite piece! I live by that prayer everyday of my life, the best I can.

Well, that's about it. (Like this blog wasn't completely, too long!) Hope I didn't lose too many of you! LOL! Have a wonderful fall weekend and enjoy your healthy days, they truly are a blessing! It feels good, to feel good!:)

I get earaches when it's windy outside, so I can relate to the ear thing, but not having tonsils out.
I hope you're feeling lots better.
Love your fall decor...that plate is awesome.

How are you feeling? Did you get yourself an antibiotic???? Youre pictures are GREAT, the stained glass pumpkin is awesome. That plant is amazing, I cant believe its been going strong for so many years (Ima house plant girl) A few years ago I had over 65 total, but I got rid of over half to pair down

Beth~ I'm glad that you are feeling better. Missed reading your posts!
Did you get my response to your question yesterday?
I want that stained glass pumpkin! I bet it looks wonderful lighted up at night=)
Your home looks already for Fall. I just don't have much in the way of Fall decor at this time. One reason is because it would have to stay out all year long, due to lack of storage. Hopefully I can update soon on what we plan to do to resolve that problem.
Glad your back!

I am so sorry to tell you but the crow that was in the background of my craft show from earlier this summer did not belong to me. I did the show with two other people and the crow belonged to the lady next to me. I am not sure if she has anymore left or not. She is preparing for a Christmas Show...I can't wait to go...hehe. But I can ask for you if you wish???
