chilly chitter chatter...

chicken and bisquits
Brrr!  its gotten pretty chilly out tonight.  I even had to close up a bunch of windows.  Its feeling very fallish out there!   way too early for that, I hope it warms back up soon.   I worked late tonight and was really hungry for something warm and yummy when I got home so I made chicken and bisquits and promptly over ate!  I really need to knock that off!  not even two whole months til the wedding and still wanting to lose more weight before then. 
nathaniels lamb
I finally finished the little lamb in memory of Nathaniel for Tiffany.  I hope she likes him.  he still needs his tag. And, I finished the ties for Tony and Nessas wedding.  Cant believe thats going to be here so fast.. and then the baby too.  So much going on!  showers, partys, weddings, babys, birthdays, company coming! and then of course all the holidays!  My hubby turns 56 on thursday.  I probably should plan a special dinner for him. 
wedding ties
Speaking of Holidays.  two girlies asked if I would be hosting a halloween swap.  before I make my decision is there anyone else out there doing one or interested in doing one?  It seems that someone else mentioned it.. somewhere in blogland.  well, let me know.   I'm not really sure I want to host one.
halloween doll
and.. speaking of Halloween... Look what found its way to my door last wednesday!  I bought this from Jill at bucks county folk art.  isnt she adorable?  love her!  
OK, my friends.. I am feeling really tired tonight.  I think I'm actually going to go watch tv with my husband. unless he turns on races or something violent... then I'll be back! lol

You work so hard and have so many obligations.
I was just thinking it was time for a for or Halloween swap. I could help you.
The lamb is so sweet. I am sure she will treasure it.
Happy birthday to your hubby.

Viv, I wish I could do something spectacular JUST FOR YOU! You are always doing for others, giving to others, and being WONDERFUL. You really are, and I admire you as much as I love you! I think the lamb is perfect! I know the kids will, too! It's a sweet and caring gift of remembrance! As for you 'overeating', I HOPE you ate a bite or two of the chicken & biscuits for ME! Oh, Viv. Sometimes I am so hungry (genuinely HUNGRY - not just SAYING that) I could eat the couch! Sigh. I HAVE to remember to eat both my meals each day but I get busy and miss one sometimes. Not smart. You are doing GREAT! And you do NOT have to lose pounds for an event! You're perfct just the way you are! LOVE YOU! P.S. Tell 'Big Tony' your crazy friend Kai wishes him a REALLY happy birthday!

Such a sweet lamb. A lovely tribute. It's definitely chilly today in MI. I don't think it even hit 70. I'm so proud of how hard you have worked at your diet. Go, girl go! I'm glad you purchased that sweet Halloween gal from Jill. She does such amazing work. I've got Halloween on the brain, sweetie! Orange and black hugs tonight!!

Must be time for me to start bugging you about taking care of yourself again. Pace yourself darling lady, lots to do, but you must keep your well being in the forefront.

Love ya'

What a sweet little lamb!

Wish we'd have another cool spell- not snow or anything like that- just below 90!

Lisa said...

That lamb is precious!
You are so busy and have so much on your plate. If you don't feel up to hosting a swap, don't do it. You are sooo giving to everyone all the time, Viv. Enjoy all the fun stuff and busyness going on in your family and your life. :)
There are *always* going to be swaps to host later on. Take care of yourself!

Your little lamb is adorable and a wonderful remembrance. I can't believe you had such a cool evening - I know you're wanting it to warm up, but I would LOVE to have some coolness!! Those ties are awesome, by the way... Have a wonderful rest of your week!
