Life In a Nutshell

My Uncle came home from the hospital Wednesday night! Praise the Lord!!!

Ella got sick for the first time! She started running a fever Wednesday. It was always around 100-101 but it did spike to 104 in the early morning of Thursday!!! Called the doc...said I was doing everything I should be and to bring her to the office in the a.m. She had/has no other symptoms so just wait for it to pass. I'm pretty sure I see FOUR...count them FOUR...upper teeth coming through. But the doc says a teething fever won't get as high as the poor kid got hit with some little virus AND four new teeth at the same time. Gotta say, she handles it like a champ. Sure she was a little fussy and only wanted to be with mama...but I can't say that it really bothered me :)

Yesterday I found out that I got the per-diem job I wanted! I fill out paperwork on Thursday and have oriention on Monday! I'm not gonna lie, my ideal would be to stay at home with Ella 100% and not add anything else to complicate life. But we need the money, it's good to keep my foot in the field, and it's the best situation if I have to work outside the home at all.

After my sewing maching broke, a friend's I borrowed wasn't in working order, and finally finding another friend to lend me hers (which by the way was the nicest machine I've ever sewed probably cost a little more than my car...and I prayed the entire time I used it that I would not hurt it....) Last night I finally got to finish up four sewing projects that I had on hold. All but one are gifts. I can't wait to give them away!

Today I entered my apple pie in my first pie contest at our town's "Harvest Daze". I'm not expecting much as the edge protector stuck to my not-so-beautiful anymore crust and the lattice top got a little darker in a few places than I would have liked. But we'll see.

I'm looking forward to heading down to the cute little festival when Ella wakes up from her nap. It's a perfect fall day. Can't wait to see people drop pumpkins from airplanes trying to hit a target in the lake below!!! And can't wait to see the Giant Pumpkin Regatta also!!!

This evening Ella and I will be off to my mom's until Tuesday. I'm helping her clean out the last few rooms in her house in order to get it on the market. I'm also looking forward to going to my old church and visiting friends. Should be a full few days.

Jason will be heading to Rangley area to satisfy his fall fishing hankerin'. Poor guy hasn't done as much since moving down here so I'm glad he's going to learn some new fishin' holes. He informs me that after the rain Sunday, "the fish will be screamin' up the rivers" on Monday. I could explain why, but that would take to long. Go get 'em honey!

And that's life in a nutshell for us!
