A Harvest of Good Things

Once again it's
Pumpkin
time
here in the
Pumpkin Capital of the World!
Our Pumpkin Festival
started today
and runs through Saturday.
I, of course, look forward mostly
to the
Craft Sale
on the last day :)))
Living here and being surrounded by
pumpkin mania
this time of year
keeps me on the constant lookout
for new pumpkin patterns.
I love this one they gave me at my
LYS.
I did tweak it a bit here and there {naturally}.
It has been a fun pattern to work with.
Cute, huh?!

And on a personal note~
My Mother~In~Law
is doing better,
however,
due to her age she has some
longstanding health issues
 that will be with her always now.
I still keep a close watch on her,
take her to all doctor appointments
and fill her medication keeper each week.
I am so thankful she lives next door to me.
And I thank each one of you for your kind comments,
concern,
&
prayers.
It means so much.

Also, I had a new experience today.
For the first time I gave myself an injection.
The doctor put me on Enbrel for my RA.
Rather than going into the office for a weekly injection,
I opted to self inject.
It went quite well.
I feel just fine.
Much better than when I was on Methotrexate {UGH!!!}
So~
So far so good.
I have high hopes for this medication
and
who knows
maybe next year
I
will win the Golfing Championship
{maybe I should learn to golf first...}.

And one more thing~
Tomorrow we hit the 2 year mark from Scott's Pancreatic Cancer.
Can I get a good
AMEN!!!

I pray this finds you all
Happy
Healthy
&
Blessed.

With Love,
Danette

      So glad you like the pumpkins :)
      I have 2 more patterns I am going to try and post when I have them made up. As for the shot ~ piece of cake! If it makes me feel better and slows disease process I can do it!!!
      And I can't even shout Hallelujah loud enough where Scott is concerned. God is Good!

    1. Hello Love!
      Thanks :>)
      I wish you could join me on craft day. I think probably nobody knows how to do a craft day like the Get Along Gang does!
      {I'm thinking you might need a new pumpkin to add to the collection at Pumpkin Cottage}.
      Tootles,

    1. Hello My Friend!
      We thank God for every moment. The pumpkins are fun aren't they? I like white pumpkins best of all because I am not an orange lover. But most people prefer the orange ones. That's what I sell the most of. You have a lovely day!
