 I have been a little busy lately with getting ready for another craft show. I went to one last Saturday. The two pictures were part of my tea towels, pillowcases, bibs, just to name a few. I sold a little, but not like the show before.

My grandson with his birthday Lego set. It was over 700 pieces and he never stopped until it was built. He built it in one evening after they got home. He has such an imagination and you never know what is going to be built next. 

I have another craft show in a couple of weeks, but this Saturday, my daughter, daughter-in-law and I are going to the Taste of Home Cooking Show here at our civic arena. It will be a lot of fun. The last one showed us how to make upside down apple pie. They made one of those and it was good. They both like to cook.

Today was a rainy, stormy, day to be on the road, but I had to get my mammogram done, plus take care of some other things. It is the pits when you have a bank account compromised and you have to close the account and then change all of your information again. At least they didn't get any money. I have a very good idea of who it is, but proving it is another problem. They will get caught one of these days. I am a firm believer in that.

I did meet with the doctor yesterday and discuss some things with her about my hubby.  His ammonia level is still not where it should be. They thought his stomach problem was because of what he was eating and just gaining weight. No, it is not., but he couldn't get into his size 38 waist pants. I want things checked out. His mother had stomach cancer and I just want to know if it because of the liver problem or what.  I know in the past they have drained fluids off his stomach and was told they may have to do that every so often.
They were suppose to do an ultrasound on my hubby today, but for some reason it did not get done. I will have to check on that tomorrow when I go up. I was to exhausted when I got home. Part of the time you were driving where you could hardly see the road. It was very nerve racking and it is a state law you drive with your lights on in this kind of weather, but you would be surprised how many don't. They drive like idiots and it is no wonder there are wrecks.

Who would believe our Kansas City Chiefs are 8-0 after last year? It is amazing that is for sure. We keep track of my hubby's cousin's college team who is 8-0, and where I went to college who is also 8-0. 

 Well it is getting late, I will try to catch up with you all. Take care and Happy Halloween.

Taste of Home will be great. We lived in Greendale, the home of Taste of Home, for 10 years.
I am praying for you and your husband. You go get 'em. Unfortunately you have to push and stay on top of it!

Shirley, Our day was wet and windy...just nasty. I hate driving in bad weather of any kind. I want to tell you, your grandson did a fantastic job with those legs. I love his stuff. I also love all your beautiful stitchery. You are amazing. I hope things work out for your husband. He must be in pain at times. Keep us posted. Blessings to you sweet lady. xoxo,Susie

I don't like driving in rain, either, especially on the freeways or interstates where all the big rigs spray you and you can't see beans. Your grandson is really good with those Legos! Hope your mammo results are good and that your hubby gets along okay. Take care and Happy November to you! Have a nice weekend!
