Hey everyone! What a weekend to be laid up. The temps have dropped and I've been stuck indoors after surgery to remove a lipoma from my thigh. I'm doing great, healing nicely. The worse part, other than being stuck in bed, was the 9 hours of no water or food before the 1 PM surgery.
I woke up Friday morning at 3:45 am, drank my last glass of water and proceeded to stay awake till the 1 PM surgery. Truly the longest 9 hours of my life. I was miserable, cranky, hungry, thirsty and caffeine deprived. My poor family.
Anyway, I decided the day before my surgery I would decorate for Fall. I was inspired by my visit to Wisconsin a couple weeks ago. Let me tell you, they do it up big-time. I kept trying to figure out ways to get corn shucks, pumpkins and gourds home.
The above water pump was a gift from my Dad several years ago. It's huge and barely fit in our van. Randy then wired it so that it's a water feature. Love the sound of running water coming from the backyard.
What a treat to unpack after-Halloween thrift store finds. This lighted Disney jack-o-lantern was found at a yard sale last year and was a total surprise while I was unpacking. We're a Disney-lovin family! SO guess what? We booked our tickets for a family Disneyland vacation Nov. 6-8th!! SO excited!
Don't you just love the packaging on this wine bottle? We have yet to enjoy this apple cider wine that we bought at a winery in Door County, WI a few years ago. And it's served warm. Hey, I even bought THIS so that I could continue to use the bottle after we finally consumed its goodness. Hey, this could be the year. Cheers!
