Friday FInds . . .
A few of the wow moments, or things I discover each week that tickle my fancy. I hope that they may inspire or tickle yours too!
Mince Pie for your pooch! A lovely treat that you can bake for your beloved furry family member that they will enjoy. From The Dogs Trust. Speaking of dogs, Mitzie had her annual check up this week, and they said she was very healthy, she got her booster also. Yay!
I just love this driftwood wall tree, specifically designed for smaller spaces. It's very pretty! Unfortunately I couldn't find a source. Just the idea. This would be perfect for apartment dwellers with not much room.
Christmas Tree Pompom Fairies. From Fancy House Road. Aren't they just adorable!
Dried Fruit tree ornaments. These would look great with popcorn and cranberry garlands! From Sharon Glasgow.
These Mini Cheeseballs in Phyllo Cups would be a beautiful holiday appetizer. From A Spicy Perspective. Even the balls on their own without the phyllo cups would be fab!
Cookie Cutter Mini Pizzas. Another holiday appetizer recipe. Fround on Rhodes Rolls. We don't get the Rhodes Rolls over here, but my wheels are turning. Watch this space!
What a cute idea! Silhouette Christmas Ornaments. Found on Nest Of Posies.
Window cleaning tips from the People at BH&G. You gotta love BH&G. When I lived in Canada, I often bought their magazine.
DIY Infinity Scarf. I Love these. A complete Tutorial on I Heart Nap Time.
Mini Match Box Teddies. From Red Ted Art. Love these. I love anything tiny and I love doing match box crafts.
And that's my Friday Finds for this week. I hope you found something useful here! I know I sure did!
Now about yesterday. Single. Worst. Experience. OF MY LIFE. Seriously. I would rather give birth. I thought I wanted sedation, but then when I got there in the chair talking to the nurse, my blood pressure was sky rocketing. I didn't want to risk it, although I knew I would probably be okay. Also it would have meant I had to stay there for over 2 hours, plus I wouldn't have been allowed to be left on my own for over 24 hours, etc. Plus it was Bonfire Night and I didn't want Mitzie on her own here at the house with fireworks going off, etc. (It was too late in the day.) Also I didn't want Todd to have to hang around the hospital waiting. So I chose to do it without sedation. HORRIBLE is all I can say. I don't know how I got through it. Must have been all of your prayers. The nurse kept stroking my head and telling me you're doing okay all the way through it. I didn't feel like I was doing okay. It was positively AWFUL. I thought I was going to throw up twice. But I didn't. Burps kept coming up from the air they pumped in at the same time. The banana flavoured stuff they freeze your throat with was absolutely terrible tasting. Blecch! Blecch! Blecch! They did a total of 9 biopsies. They found a polyp. I suppose that is why they did all the biopsies. All I have to do now is wait and see. Praying all will be well, but if it isn't I'll just have to do what I have to do. There is only one way to get through things and that is to keep putting one foot in front of the other. I hope I don't ever have to do this again. Ever. Thank you all so very much for your prayers and happy thoughts. I do not think I could have gotten through this without them.
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
Before you act, listen.
Before you react, think.
Before you spend, earn.
Before you criticize, wait.
Before you pray, forgive.
Before you quit, try.
I'm sharing some tasty recipes from Newman's Own in the Kitchen today. Scrumptious!
Have a wonderful Friday. Don't forget!
