To my regular followers, this is about as good as it is getting for right now. I have been a Draggin these last few days. After chemo on Monday I thought I would be ok...but here it is Thursday and I am still rather blah. I am going to post several things today to sorta get "caught up"!

I wanted to show you the beautiful package I received from Sammie at Bears In Exile. She wanted to be included in Ceekay's Giveaway Win! I was thrilled with everything...but was so happy to receive the slipper socks. I wear these during chemo and I needed a new pair! Thank you so much!

Karen from Some Days are Diamonds sent me a glorious box full of goodies to do an Altered Journal. I already have great plans for it. The items she sent are just fantastic...very vintage. Karen has become a dear friend and my only wish is that we lived closer to each other!

See the Bingo card....oh, I was so excited about that!

I went to a neighbor's garage sale and she had these wonderful bar stools that are the correct heigth for our counter. The cushions totally match our dining chairs.... She had paid 100.00 for them each at Mor, but wanted $20.00 each. I didn't have that much at home and was going to get the rest when she said $12.00 each.....oh, I was doing the happy dance. They are perfect!

I fixed our counter for a Halloween lunch before hubs went to work. I used the little jack-o-latern towels from the Dollar Tree for napkins...and

My halloween Beanie bears and Laura's note card for the centerpiece!

Bentley was such a good boy Halloween night. He loved all the kids coming for candy. Not a peep out of him....

And the candy finally went. Not too many treaters, but enough cute little ones for this grandma to get her cute kid fix!

Hope you all are having a great week. I think I am finally turning the corner and may actually feel better tomorrow. I sure hope so. There is an item at Walmart (Kat, you KNOW) that I want to get so bad, if they have come in yet. That is on my list of things to do!!!

I hope you are feeling 100% soon. You sound perky, if that makes you feel better!

I love all of your goodies. Those slipper socks are the best. It is hard to curl up on a chair or couch with slippers, so these are perfect for me too (who does more curling up than a cat!!). Love your packages from Karen, too. I am wondering how those journals are made. They are getting quite popular.

Love, love those stools. They look like they are in mint condition. Great price!! Good for you, lucky girl. I like how you set the bar up. The little pumpkins bags for napkins are so cute as well as the beany bears. Can you believe Halloween is finally over? It'll be turkey talk from here on!

Well, get plenty of rest tonight. I am really wondering what this is you want at Kmart. I was just there and don't think I missed any of the good stuff!! ;-)

Hi Ceekay,
Bently looks so cute as a jack-o-lantern! My T.T.Rabbit barked at every treater last year, so I put him in the bedroom this year for awhile and when I finally let him out, he didn't make a sound.
I hope tomorrow is a better day for you. You are in my prayers always.
I love those stools! Great job!

Hi CeeKay!
I hope and pray that you are feeling a little better today. One day at a time is all that you can take.

Love your post. The bar stools are the best. Love them. Your luncheon for you and DH was so sweet, and I see where the precious little pumpkin face towels went. They were perfect - two peas in a pod.

Bentley looked so handsome in his pumpkin sweater for Halloween. I am sure he enjoyed all of the kids.

I am putting your package in the mail. Hoping you will have it at least by Monday. You never know here in the valley. I hope it makes you smile, and please enjoy it as much as I did making it for you.

Much love sweetie, Sherry


Dear Ceekay, I am sorry to hear you are not feeling so well. Understandable. I have been praying for you:)

Love all your pumpkin decorations! so nice that you set up the table for hubby for lunch.

How great that you recieved all those lovely gifts. If there is ever anything I can do for you , just let me know.
Take care and blessings always!

Ceekay, I am hoping you are feeling MUCH better soon. I wish there was something I could do for you to make you feel better. I'm glad you got those wonderful gifties and that you had such a fun time decorating and got those great bar stools for a song! YIPEEEEE!

Bailey looks SOOOOOO cute, too, and I am in love with your cute placemats. Very cute!

Sending you hugs and love to feel better...

Hi Ceekay...

Ahhh...thanks for that little pun...I'm sooooo not wanting to do it, but soon it will be over. :-)

I came to see you yesterday and got distracted opening other blogs from yours....I have Firefox so I can have LOTS and LOTS of tabs open at the same time. No wonder I'm not getting anything done...It's way too much fun to poke around in blogland......

Anyway, I wanted to tell you how much I loved your presents! Lucky girl. It looks like lots of fun just waiting to happen.

And you barstools are DELISH...LOVE 'em....and the price? YIPPPEEEE!

I hope this finds you feeling a bit better....
