HAPPY FALL, FRIENDS!!!
So I love Fall ALMOST as much as I love summer.
—So, I had a neurologist appointment last week. I go every 6 months for a check-up regarding my “complicated” migraines and trigeminal neuralgia. You sure did read that right; complicated migraines are a rare type, and while many migraine sufferers get auras, I get stroke symptoms. The whole sha-bang facial droop, slurred speech, chest pain, and numbness in a limb (pick one). So I know when I get these symptoms, a migraine is on it’s way. These symptoms don’t last, and I’m not having a stroke. So far, no research has been done on complicated migraines, so treatment is “let’s see if this works” type of thing. I have migraines several times a week, sometimes lasting as long as 31 hours at a pop. It’s quite maddening and can play a part with daily activities or me having to have to cancel plans with you.
—So, I forgot to show you guys this picture my friend’s husband took with his phone in September of the harvest moon. Neat right?
— So, you know how I say that I’m a not-so-serious crafter? Well, I haven’t been most of my adult life; I could take it or leave it. But definitely not woo-hoo crafts. You know I help my friend with her wreaths and that I’ve made a few myself. Vendor shows and festivals are okay. Anyhow, I love Pinterest and was browsing one day. I saw several crafts (not wreaths) that caught my eye. So I decided to try to try a few of my own. Well, let me tell you, friends. I felt so much JOY making these. I felt relaxed, peaceful, and JOY! Knowing how I am with crafts, this really surprised me. The only feeling I can describe is JOY. So, I talked to Jesus about it. And I continue to feel JOY! So I think I’m going to continue to make some crafts and not so much with wreaths, although I’m not discounting them.
— This was the first one I made.
— And, of course, I had to try a buffalo print hanging sign.
