Jam packed weekend...

Happy Sunday ... I've been in bed all day recouping from my weekend and now I have a boost of energy. Note: This is a long post...
On Friday my mom had a double catherization procedure on both of her legs. She's been suffering for many years and Dr's had said it was a pinched nerve. After a recent Stress test it was discovered that she had two clogged arteries in her legs and the Dr. felt that this was causing the lack of circulation in her legs and this is why she had so much pain. The procedure was quick and the Dr. says it went well. Know we wait and see if the pain subsides and she's able to walk again without a limb. Cross your fingers and say a little prayer.

Saturday was jam packed... I was scheduled for a garage sale at Scrapbooks N Stuff but I was double booked with cub scouts so Vanessa volunteered to sell my stuff at the garage sale. I ended up staying with her to set up and sell for awhile before I headed off to the cub scout event. Good thing I did... 90% of our stuff was sold by 10:30 am. Talk about timing. I'm so happy that I got rid of two bins of scrapbook stuff. I still have a lot more to go through but I'll have plenty of time to go through my stuff for the next garage sale in 6 months. Nana, Vanessa and the girls did an awesome job organizing the store, they provided us with drinks and lunch and gave us a wonderful incentive to use our store credit. If you haven't been by the store you should definitely go. They are doing a wonderful job in supplying us with products that we love.


The Raingutter Regatta was a success. D won a second place trophy for his boat. They had a great time. I love the cub scouts and I love all the families I get to spend time with.







Last but not least... I've been working on some Thankful cards for a challenge on BASB. This has been a great little project for me. I've been making cards everynight with scraps of supplies I have laying around that have been neglected. I love how they are turning out. I'm not holding my breathe that I'll win so I put the 7 gypsies carousel on my Christmas wishlist just in case. LOL I need to display these beautiful sentiment cards I'm making.
















I wanted Jorge and D to make some cards but they have had so many school projects that really there is no time but D had a school project about Thankful and here's a picture of his collage. He drew me, Jorge, himself, our house and the dog. It turned out super cute.









Thank you for reading this super long post. Have a wonderful week...
Hugs,
Ady

Ady, you weren't kidding when you said your weekend was packed! First, sending your mom some thoughts and prayers. Hope she gets well soon and that they've figured out what was going on with her legs. Great job on selling stuff at the sale! I need to do something like that! Congrats to your handsome little man as well!! And finally, wonderful job on your cards :).
