An affair of the Heart

I attended "An Affair of the Heart" at the Tulsa fairgrounds today. From the crowd no one would ever guess our economy was in bad shape. A couple of the Ilse were so full of people I could barley breath! It got really uncomfortably hot and stuffy in the Quick Trip building. The crowd thinned out around two.

Oh there were several NEW hand made items. Some people are so very creative. I will take pictures of the two I bought if I remember tomorrow.

Street Cats of Tulsa booth had the new releases of the Laurel Burch purses. Of course they had the kitties patterns. I had to have one large purse plus a cute little zipper bag and the most gouges scarf. I also purchased an item from them for Lulu's Christmas gift. They had Laural Burch fabric made into catnip bags so I purchased one for my kitties. Let me tell ya I was surprised what a hit it was with them. Only my baby Jai did not have anything to with it. It must have had the good kind of cat nip since none the my cats ever go crazy over the cat nip toys I have brought home in the past.

My back started to bother me while I was walking around (after three hours) so I finished up and left. I had to go to Hobby Lobby for a new picture for my new office, however, the pictures were not on sale this week so I purchased some metal "stuff". I would have never guessed in a million years I would be into metal more and more as I age. The deer are everywhere on the roads it seems so I wanted to get home before it was dark.

Since the sun was still shinning when I left Hobby Lobby I went to the Chinese drive thru for Lu and I some take out.

Now I am tired and ready to clean off my bed and hit the hay.

Have a wonderful week end.

It's HERE!!!!

My Christmas gift from my darling LuLu! I really loved her Kindle so she purchased one for me. She ordered it early just in case they sold out. How lucky am I!

I purchased the pink skin from Amazon also. Gives the plain white a bit of personality. I had Lu put the skin on for me. I must say it look GOOOOD.

I started my new job Monday. So far all is awesome. I had to leave early today as the nurse from my mothers nursing home called my cell with a message I was to contact her. I tried to contact her for half an hour with out success. Finally I just hopped into the car to go see her in person. She said mom was fine however she had fallen again. This time on her fanny. I went in and talked to her before her supper arrived and she seemed fine. I was glad to see the nurse attached a wheel chair alarm as mom was on the floor awhile before they found her.

On a happier note I now have an office of my own with a big double window I will be able to save my beautiful fuchsia. I may even try to over winter my bougainvillea after I transplant it into a prettier "inside" planter.
Off to bed.

Working a job and a half has really cut in to my computer time.

Glad to be back home!

We went shopping tonight. We went to Joann's and of course Hobby Lobby looking for fabric for the quilt along I am doing.

I got a bolt of white Kona with my 40% coupon so I am ready to start on the quilt as soon as my other supplies arrive in the mail.

We hopped over to Red Lobster for supper as Lu was hungry for the all she could eat shrimp special. I of course stuck with chicken strips.

We were headed out of Tulsa towards home when the car made a funny sound and red lights lite up the dash STOP! Something blew all the coolant out of the engine.

Unfortunately the nearest exit was in a part of town I am never in after dark. We called triple A for a tow to the VW place and waited with the car till the tow truck arrived. The driver was just a sweet huge bear of a man.

I heard sirens and told Lu "they" were coming for her since she broke my car. From the opposite direction was more sirens. A police officer pulled up were I was standing and asked "Did you hear shots fired?" (can I just say: GULP!)

I told the officer the tow truck was too loud I could not hear anything over the sound of the motor. Scared the spit right out of me. I am not a fan of being around when someone is shooting a gun, at night, by a busy interstate, in a large city, in a questionable part of town. I just wanted to go home.

While we sat in our broken car at the VW dealership on Memorial we watched several cars racing down the street. I just could not believe how wild the kids were acting and how dangerous they were driving. Finally the police arrived and were chasing cars down.

The city laid off 21 police officers to cut cost and hired 18 back a week or so later. They need to hire another 100 officers to help keep our town safe. We have so many different gangs and wanna be tough guys and gals Tulsa is just not safe any more...........or I am just getting too old for this kinda stuff. :o)

Bless my sweet niece for coming and picking us up and delivering us safely home. I need to go to sleep but my mind is racing and my tummy is upset.

Poor ol'Lu has to be at work at 9 a.m. Pity those that have to work around her :o)

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Last blooms of the season.

This fuchsia is so very beautiful. I have been protecting it from the freezes we have had. I just hate to let it go.

How beautiful are those colors!

Poor baby Carter has had a stuffie nose. He wants to be held ALL the time.....if his human is standing up walking. If we sit down with him he gets mad and takes off. He is getting ready to jump up to my chest as I take his picture.

As you can see we have more leaves on the stairs and tracked thru the house than we should.
Happy November to all!
