It's Just Another Manic Monday

Do you remember that song?  Never sure what it meant, but I liked it.  To update Bubby's condition, yesterday morning he made a complete 360 and started to talk, play basketball with his socks and his mom and dad.  The result of the latest cat scan was better than the one on Wednesday, and a shunt malfunction was ruled out (again).  To make a long story short, they sent him home!!  He was so happy to be out of that hospital, and we know that he doesn't remember anything that happened because he asked Mary where they were and why they were there.  Then last night, he had another seizure.  Mary called the ambulance, and then called neurology at Children's.  They told her that they felt it was just his body adjusting to the new medication, and didn't feel that hospitalization was necessary.  He came out of the seizure quickly, Mary canceled the ambulance, and I'm sure she had a very restless night.  Additional thanks to all for your prayers and support.  I have some really wonderful cyber-friends.  I am definitely blessed.
I really needed something to do yesterday - something fun.  So I used some pumpkin swap blocks from 2007, and put them together with fabrics in my stash.  I really liked the way it turned out.  No to get it sandwiched, quilted and bound.  I really love the colors green and orange.  Fall is definitely my favorite time of year, and pumpkins make me happy.  So today I am cheesin' (as DD Mary would say).

 Some of these swap blocks almost look like our pumpkins out back.  Anyone know when you harvest pumpkins???  Ours are turning orange and the vines are starting to die.  I think in October we are going to have a soup supper.  We invite friends and family, ask them to bring a pot of soup to share, and we provide the homemade bread and desserts.  We had one a few years ago, and everyone loved it and has been asking for another.  Rod and I both have birthdays in October, so we usually make it the weekend in between our birthdays.

Today I want to "rid up" my sewing room.  That was one of my granny's favorite sayings.  Some fabrics need folded and put away, and my sideboard needs to be cleaned off.  So I'll say have a good week.

I'm glad Bubby is home. Hopefully his meds get in his system soon and the seizures stop.

SO glad to hear Bubby is home and improving. I hope there are no more scares like you had last week. The pumpkin blocks look great the way you put them together. I'd think your pumpkins need to be picked before much longer...although when we went pumpkin picking with our kids (years back) there were NO live vines left on the ground there. SO...maybe it's okay to let the vines die off first???
