I'm a busy bee!

...or is that a butterfly?


A friend and I had a craft booth at a local church fundraiser. It was a blast. She painted faces, and I sold a few goodies:


My sketch journals were a conversation starter. Loved meeting a few Whovians on the Mississippi Coast! I also made my chocolates, as I often do during the holidays. They turned out pretty darn wonderful.







Yummmmmmmmmmmmm!

I was on my walker and could have never done any of this without assistance from friends. We didn't make a ton of money, but we sure laughed a lot, as we usually do. I went straight home afterwards and crashed. I've pretty much been down with muscle weakness ever since. I'll hopefully see some improvement in spite of the extreme weather fluctuations we're getting at the moment:

It was 73 at 2:00 this morning. It will be 27 tonight.
Small fluctuations are noticeable. Large ones are detrimental.
May God have mercy on all of us with systemic disease.


Last week, a friend and former Bob Ross student invited me to The Melting Pot for dinner. Folks, it was one of the most incredible dinners I have ever experienced:





Everything was amazing. I loved every minute.


The weekend prior, I carpooled with my family to Louisiana. You'll never guess why. In fact, I cannot believe I haven't blogged about this yet. I've been living in a fog since Mom died and I've forgotten to share so much here. At any rate, here is the good news:

My little Zoey Boo Boo is going to be a BIG SISTER!
WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

We are so excited to have another princess in the family! And what a special honor that they're naming her after me. It makes me cry if I think about it too much. I can't wait to meet her!!!

The baby shower was nice, and I was glad to see my nieces.

I'm thankful that I could go to Louisiana to spend time with everyone, and I hope and pray I am able to return when the new baby arrives in less than two months! Squeeeeee!

I haven't forgotten about National Novel Writing Month. In fact, I have been a writing fool and I'm on track to reach 50K at the end of the month. I've met with nearly 20 other writers around the gulf coast over the last 2.5 weeks, which has been great. I hope we can keep in touch after NaNoWriMo ends.

I've answered over 500 questions on Ask.fm. It's been a fun distraction. Thanks (and feel free to keep throwing questions at me)!

I ranted and raved over the Doctor Who finale. Wow, what a ride Season 8 was! I'm planning a long recap on the blog, so heads up on that. I hope to post it in December before the Christmas special airs.

As I said earlier, my body is pretty fed up with me being so active, so I'm down for the count at the moment. I had to bring out the emergency potassium and magnesium in an attempt to get my condition under some sort of control. It's been a rocky couple of days, but I'm doing my best.

Thanks for hanging in there with me, readers. I hope everybody is doing great.
