Apple crisp and window clings

I headed out to do in wet 42 degree weather to do my shopping yesterday morning. On my way back home my cell phone rang. It was my daughter Amanda wanting to know where I was. I confess that I didn't hear everything she said but I did hear her tell me she would be over in a little bit.

When she came she brought me apple crisp that she made herself (it was yummy)

And window clings (oops I forgot to turn the picture but you get the idea)
 She even put the window clings up on my windows. I suppose she figured if she didn't they would never get there. Now I'm probably in trouble because I don't have a picture of them actually on the windows. Hey at least I did the blog post like she suggested.

And now for today's Halloween index card.

A case of the ouchies

Gibbs has had ear issues since shortly after we got him. Friday at 1:30 am he woke me up shaking his head and crying and he would not settle down. I knew it was time to call the vet.

I think I hear someone on the other side of that door.

Turns out not only does he have another infection but also inflammation.

She was going to give him what she called a pack. It was something that you stuff in his ear and leave it there for 14 days and it distributes the medication instead of doing drops. Then she changed her mind and gave us very expensive ear cleaner and some antibiotics.
 $139 and lots of head shakes later we were on our way back home.

He gets so stressed out when I put stuff in his ears and I feel so bad for him because there is just no calming him down. It takes about an hour before he'll finally settle down. The vet said that what she gave us should start showing results by today. Lets hope.

Because she asked

Yesterday Sandra from Mad Snapper asked me where I hang my index cards at work. Today I have a picture of where I hang them.

This is the table that I stand at for the majority of my day and my index cards hang in among the order forms and various silly notes I need to leave for people who work bakery when I'm not there. The  card doesn't stand out too well so I added the handy dandy purple arrow to help you find it

And now for today's card.

Progress report

Now that we are in to October I thought I would show you watch I got finished in September for craft projects.

If you remember my project for the month was the corrugated cardboard owls. I managed to get 7 of them done. After that I didn't have any more cardboard and I kept forgetting to bring more home from work. I think I was kind of burnt out on doing them and that's why I couldn't remember.

In between working on owls I also did several other projects. I numbered the picture so you'll know which is which.

1 clothespin magnets. I did 3 sets of 4.
2 mouse trap magnets I did 3
3 vintage coffee lady pins I made 10
4 marble magnets I did 18
5 felt flower pins I made 3
6 washer keychains I finished 2 and have 3 more started
7 canning jar lid ornaments I did a total of 8

For October I'll probably do the same thing. I'll have my main project and in between work on other little things. At least that's the plan any way.

I'm also still making my index cards and for the month of October I'm going to try and make them all with a Halloween theme.  I think I'll post those as I put them up at work so today you get the first Halloween card. No snarky or spooky comment with this one, just cutesy.
