OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!! trip to wound doctor:(

This is how it started................but it never got better!  Today (7 weeks later) I finally went to the Wound Doctor.  Who knew?  Never heard of a Wound Doctor before.
If I knew then what I know now.......I am not so sure I would have gone*&%*^#%&#
Evidently there was 'stuff' in the hole in my leg that needed to be cleaned out................OMG!
I lived through it, but it really knocked me for a loop...........sick to my stomach and upset.
I hope I never have to go through anything like this again........even though I know others go though much worse.
Rog is not looking forward to taking care of this wound for the next 4 to 6 weeks...........
I might add that I am not looking forward to him packing this wound either :(

Artist at Work...........

Went to see Laura and family Sat. to drop off a couple little things for the girls...........before I left home I got a phone call from Gabby saying "Grandma Linda are you coming over?" Yes, I said....."Want to have a play-date?" said Gabby. I had to laugh but didn't want her to hear me!  "What did you have in mind?"  I asked.
"Maybe we could have an art play-date today if you want."  Gabby said.
So precious..............and sincere!  We went and got her and she spent the evening painting!  She adores painting and has so much fun doing her artwork :)

We had just been at the funeral of Gabby's great grandma the day before....thus the cross and "Path to Heaven" written in the lower right corner:)

Southview had a little Halloween dance 
Halloween party Friday. 
We were able to go along with Michael Carrie and Jim. 
Papa and I then visited her classroom to help paint pumpkins.

Cabinet Finished!

My sweet hubby helped me to finish my flat file! 
Didn't have to purchase anything...
all the hardware was reused.
I simply soaked them in spic n span....
scrubbed with wire brush and spray painted them black gloss! 

Can you see me doing a Happy Dance?  
Well I am...........

Found while cleaning!!!

The things you find when cleaning out drawers :)

I found this Pumpkin puppet I used to make with my classroom years ago.
He is strung on the back so that
when you pull the red bead
his arms and legs jump!
The kids loved making him and seeing him come to life.
We also made witches that jumped too!

I also found this self-portrait
I don't even remember doing :)
I found so many pieces of artwork I had completed,
and was thrilled to see old friends!
