Good Morning!

Wow, I am so glad that you all like this kit. Ya know how when you get a new haircut or buy a new outfit and you just think it is so attractive but then you come home and people either have NOTHING to say or they make some blanket comment so you know that they don't like it?

Been kind of quiet around here. DH is still home from work and I must say, I think I will miss him when he goes back! I will deny ever saying that so please don't tell him! But, so many little "Honey Do" things are getting done! He still cannot climb ladders or kneel, and if he twists it in anyway he is in a lot of pain. Considering that he is a painter, not sure if he is going to be released back to work this week or not. We are still waiting for his results on all the GI stuff which hopefully we will get today. They have said that he has a bleed somewhere but this man eats everything and never complains about his stomach except when I use Folgers coffee! It is the only thing that gives him heartburn. Strange, but we will know today and then I can either worry in earnest or stop worrying, hopefully the latter!

The good thing that has come out of this is that he is more understanding of my pain. I have lived with fibro and degenerative joint disease for 30 years and everything that seems to come with it, the chronic fatigue, herniations, etc. Like all of us that have it, others can't see it so they have a hard time realizing that you are in constant pain. But, this has taught him that you can have pain without a huge gaping wound! I have waited years for someone in my family to understand. Too bad it took surgery for it to sink in! I find that he is doing more that he used to assume I should be doing that requires lifting and although he will never admit it, I understand why. He is as thick and stubborn as they get! Gee, only took 24 years of marriage to break him!

So, other than thinking about Thanksgiving dinner, all else is pretty quiet. Going to do the shopping today for some of it and get out the Kitchen Aide and get some things done in advance. Question for you...we make a soup which is Italian in origin for Thanksgiving. His family always called it Worm Soup but the Italian name is Passete (probably spelled it wrong). Has anyone else heard of it? It is made in a lemon chicken broth and the "worms" are made of eggs, bread crumbs, cheese and seasoning that you put through a press to form pencil thick strands and then cook them in the broth. It is so delicious but I have to tell you the first time I went to his house for Thanksgiving and he said that we were having Worm Soup, I was a little hesitant to say the least. Just wondered if anyone else of Italian heritage has heard of it.

I have uploaded the 2 top borders and frost overlay for you today. There are 2 files, one is in psp image format and the other is png so make sure you grab the one that best suits you. Doing a little poll by doing it this way to see which is used more.

Have a great day and thank you all for all the comments. You have really made a difference, more of a difference than you know!
Hugs!

Love your kit, thank you! It's gorgeous. (Folger's upsets my stomach, too, but other coffee is just fine. Wonder what's different.)

Barbara said...

I think this kit is your best ever! ok, maybe that is because Christmas anything is my favorite! I am sure that all of us will be on the lookout for anyone trying to claim your work..grrr. You take the high road!
I am glad that hubby now understands "chronic" pain a bit better. I hope he remembers this in 6 months too.

Usually I drop by each day to pay you a visit, I just haven't had time lately or felt well enough to do so. It often takes all I have just to get something up on my blog each day let alone at times collect goodies as well.

You and I are very much alike much to my surprise. I can certainly appreciate you work more knowing exactly how you might feel at any given time. My thoughts are definately with you!
