YOP Week #17


 The 2021 Annual Halloween Ornaments are finished!  TaDa!!!  That is all I was able to accomplish this week.  So here they are...........this one is mine....the front..........

Sam's ornament...the front.......

Grayson's.................the front

The stoic that I am would not admit I was sick so I struggled all week trying to work through it and convinced myself that "old age" was upon me and that this was the best it would ever be!  I had nausea, the dry heaves, achy limbs and so tired I couldn't stay out of bed for very long.  At the end of the week I started feeling better...Hallelujah!!!  I was so happy it wasn't "the end of the line" for my life as I know it!  Whew!  Whether it was from the flu shot or it was actually the flu but I am so grateful to be back among the living!  If I would have realized I was actually sick and would recover, it would have been a lot easier on me...lol!  I hope that's the last of it.  It was a busy week too.  Grocery shopping, I was supposed to get the pneumonia shot but I put it off, had the termite and pest control guy here and today the chimney sweep came.  I'm hoping this next week will be better and calmer.

I didn't get all my decorations  up yet but I did manage to get the pumpkin in the window!  My Aunt Alice made this years ago and it has been well used and well loved!  Thank you, Aunt Alice!

Happy Trails!!!

  1. Aunt Alice's pumpkin looks so spooky--love it! Glad you're feeling better. I had the flu a few years ago (after getting the flu shot as usual) and I didn't realize what was wrong with me for a couple of days:) Duh.

  2. I am glad you have recovered. We got our flue shots this week and 2 days later I broke out with a rash, similar to the one I had with the covid vaccine. It is lost all gone today but....I get my cobid booster in a week and am concerned I will get the rash again. Those ornaments turned out so cute. I am sure the boys will be so happy to get them.

  5. Watching the Bears game. Wow. I hope you are doing OK.

    Glad you are feeling better. It is hard to tell what is aging and what is actually sick. Cute Halloween projects.

  6. I am glad you are feeling better. It is awful to be so sick, especially when alone I think. Do you hang your Halloween ornaments on a branch or in a window or what?

  8. Glad you are feeling better. There was a bug going around here. I had school aged grandchildren for a day at a time. Luckily it lasted less than 24 hours for them. I love, love, love the ornaments.

  9. Those ornaments are great Sam. The boys are going to love them. I'm SO sorry you were sick all week. That's not a good feeling and a bit scary when you're alone. I sure hope you can move up here to our neck of the woods before long. Closer to your family. Of course it was a week when you had lots of things to do too.
    Take care of yourself and rest a lot this week to be sure and get over it all.
    Blessings and love,
    Betsy

  11. Oh I am glad you are feeling better - I think most of us plough on despite feeling under the weather and then regret it! Your ornaments though are fab!

  12. Your ornaments look amazing. I'm not sure of the significance of the buttons on the back. Are these to be detached and part of the hanger when hung, or do they stay on the back as decoration?
