Bloggy Giveaways Time and last nights dinner

It is that time again and I am excited to participate in the Quarterly Bloggy Giveaways! I will be giving away, to a Random Winner, a jar of my "famous" candied walnuts and a Fall Leaf bracelet. All you have to do is leave a comment about your favorite Fall tradition. Winner will be announced on Saturday, November 1st.

Good Luck!

I wanted to share a dinner I made last night. We recently were gifted a twice monthly delivery of farm fresh organic veggies and fruit (can you say heaven?!). Friday, early morning, we received as huge box including kale and butternut squash. So tonight we had roasted butternut with shallots and fresh rosemary, sauteed, garlic kale and balsamic porkchops with carmalized onions, yummy!

The plan is.....

Friday, October 31st I go see the OB/GYN to decide what is to be done about the "things" in my ovary. My thought is he is going to want to take it out and biopsy, but who knows. Will update about that later.

I took Aden to the Grand Opening of the new Lego store (sick and everything). He loved it and we met alot of people standing in the 2 hour line to get in. I also participated in the Together For Kids Walk at the mall and I raised over $1,300.00, I was the number one fundraiser, yay!! I won a $250 gift card for Arden Fair Mall.

Today, Aden is off from school and my friend Lorraine and I are taking the kids to Apple Hill, should be great fun! Tomorrow, his class is going to the Pumpkin Patch.

The Verdict is........

Still out.....

Yesterday I had a ultrasound, ct scan and blood work to rule out fibroids. My blood work was normal and I do not have fibroids but my right ovary showed one large "cyst" and several smaller "cysts". I have been referred to a OB/GYN. Lorraine (my dear friend and Physician) said a biopsy is probable to make sure they are cysts and possibly a removal of the right ovary.


Bee's wax

This is Aden's creation our of Bees Wax. This would not be like modeling with play dough or clay, it is much harder to get it to model what you want. The heat of your hands is what warms it up and makes it soft and easy to work with. I thought the creation very sweet and very "Halloweeny".

Me and medical gunk (is that a word??)

So today was a ultrasound, CT Scan and blood work, for me???? Fibroid Tumors, I hope that it is all it is. Lorraine guesses it could be my Thyroid but I am asking you all....what would be the symptoms that causes these things to be checked out? If you guess (and you can be blunt in your post), I am mailing you a little something.....

So many, many things!

Crazy lives.....

*Carl's folks just left to go back to their home in Phoenix! They came for a visit and to help give our house a new coat of paint and it is DONE! We saved about $3,500 in doing it this way and I just kept the food/drinks going. Worth it.

*Last Friday was Aden's Michaelmas Festival. The 2nd grade (Aden's class) were Knights who tamed the Dragon. The audience was awe-struck, photos are below. We had many new families join our school this year but I actually have someone who lives in my area now!

*I have been asked to speak at Sutter's new hospital Groundbreaking Ceremony next week. Should be interesting.

*Alexia has her 6 month checkup with her Cardiologist on Friday, and I have my 6 month upset stomache because of it.

* Oh, check out my new favorite cake shop, The Cake Stand, these women know how to make cakes!

* I think chicken marsala sounds good for dinner.
