The End of NaBloPoMo, etc.

Well today is the end of NaBloPoMo, and I almost, almost made it, but I didn't post on Thanksgiving Day. I knew I wasn't going to post - - I was too busy watching "Get Smart", I was tired, and I was in a food coma. Last year, I found NaBloPoMo to be rather easy. This year, I found that I wrote quite a few posts where I just didn't have anything to write about, or I was tired, or whatever. I did enjoy being a little more devoted to my blog, and I hope to continue that. However, when I have nothing in particular to say, I'm just not going to clog up the Internet with my drivel.

We had such a great day today! All six of us packed up and headed to Boise for the Festival of Trees. The weather was just spectacular (once we got out of our little valley). After we'd seen all of the beautiful Christmas trees, we headed for the Boise Co-op for some food, and then headed to Camelsback Park so the boys could play on the playground. Next, we paid a visit to the Sierra Trading Post outlet, where we scored some massive shoe and boot deals. Mum and I rounded out the evening with a little sewing, after everyone else went to bed. We are working on an apron that we hope to finish up tomorrow.

Camden heads back to school tomorrow, and Steve is off to work. As for me, I have an Angel Cake to deliver to the Veteran's Home, and then I will spend the rest of the day fasting for an endoscopy and colonoscopy on Tuesday (more than you wanted to know, I'm sure). I am so not looking forward to the fasting/"cleansing", or the procedure for that matter, but alas, it must be done! Please eat something delicious tomorrow and dedicate it to me, because I will not be eating anything!

Hi Heather! Cute apron pattern! Coincidentally, I am making matching aprons for Clayton and I and aprons for my niece and for my mother for Christmas. I am using a very retro pattern from Simplicity. They are really making a comeback! It seems there are aprons, aprons everywhere I look! -Amy

I'm going to have a peanut butter cup right now, in your honor!

I hope all goes well for you.

We also have a Festival of Trees at our local museum. It's a must see event and we look forward to it every year!! Glad you are enjoying some fun times with your parents!
Hope all goes well with the endoscopy/colonoscopy. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

Sounds like fun and busy times for you all. The tree display must've been delightful. What a cute apron. Good luck on Tuesday!

I really enjoyed reading your blog every day - I'm going to miss my daily fix!
Good luck tomorrow. I remember when Katie Couric had one on TV - she actually made it seem not so bad - I'm sure you are anxious to have it over with though.
That angel in your last photo - I bought one like that for Leah at a craft fair in Wells. I thought it was just something a local person made, but I guess you can get them in Idaho too! They're really cute.

I'll be thinking of you today, Heather; hope all goes well and that you get some answers. I'm so glad your mother is there with you!

Amy - I love aprons! I love looking at all the great patterns, as you mentioned. You'll have to send some pictures of your aprons! I'd love to see them.

Melissa - Thank you...I LOVE peanut butter cups!

Lisa - Isn't Festival of Trees fun? I love going. We've had a great visit. I'm so sad for them to leave tomorrow!

Cheryl & Linda - Thanks for the well-wishes. I cannot wait to get it over with and get some answers (hopefully).

Jennifer - I am still going to try to blog at least 5 days per week. I just need to get a little organized about it. As far as the colonoscopy goes...I think the worst is over (that would be the starving/cleansing). I like food too much.
