Photo & Book 11-09 (Medium)

Thank you, mrs. e!!!  I won this lovely photo and cool book from an anniversary giveaway at Easy Street!  I was so excited when my husband brought the mail in and told me that there was a package for me!  Inside I found my winnings wrapped in really pretty tissue paper, but I tore it off too quickly to take a picture of them.  The photo mrs. e sent is such a pretty fall image.  It looks great in my living room!  And, the book!!!  The night before this package arrived I was browsing the Borders Books website.  I have a gift certificate that I want to use up and this is one of the books that I picked!  Luckily, I didn’t place the order.  I wanted to browse some more and get enough books to receive the free shipping.  mrs. e, you are amazing!  Thank you!

Spoon & Rice face 11-09 003 (Medium)Rice stuck on spoon face!

You might remember the cute, happy face that my ice cream scoop made at me.  Well, I’m not sure what my rice stirring spoon is trying to say to me here.  He looks kind of annoyed.  He’s probably telling me to stop the worrying.  Worrying never got me anywhere good.  But, I am a little worried.  Maybe a little more than a little.  I’m going for my annual mammogram on Tuesday and a couple of weeks ago I found a painful, hard spot in one of my boobs.  My family history is not good, but I do have a personal history of benign cysts and such, so I’m hoping as hard as I can hope that that this is nothing.  Please keep me in your thoughts.  And tell me how you keep from worrying.

Mushroom 11-09 011 (Medium)Mushroom

And to end the randomness, a mushroom.  It’s growing in our backyard.  After I took this photo, sometime later in the afternoon, Timmy was outside and I saw he seemed to be eating something near where the mushroom was.  I ran outside yelling to him to “leave it” which is his signal to drop whatever he has.  Not that he pays attention to the signal.  Within an instant it ran through my head that he was eating a mushroom, it might be deadly, no, my sweet pup!  Then I saw that he wasn’t eating the mushroom, he was eating something near it.  He was eating poop.  Yeah.  Yuk!  And, no he didn’t leave it.

    Will be praying for you. My mom also has a history of benign cysts. Even though, she always gets worried when that time of year arrives. Praying it is nothing.

    Gayle, I have to admit I’m a little worried for you which is going to translate to prayer that the results are in your favor.
    I wondered what the book was. Please give us a review after you are done!
    Positive thoughts coming your way.

    Oh, winning is so fun! You’ll have to let us know how you like the book. And, Gayle, I hope the mammogram goes well. You are definitely in my thoughts and prayers and I hope all is normal and well and as it should be.

    And I love love love the face in the spoon. Yes, he does look a bit snarky.

    Great randomness and fabulous pictures. May the spot be nothing more than fibroid and all is well! I really really like that mushroom shot (my camera is acting weird at times – I think the fall it took last year and landing on tile might be starting to catch up :( )
