{life lately} looking back on October

I have to say that October really flew by for me and it was busy, too.  The past four weeks have been dedicated to getting my poor Brutus James back to normal.  I think we’ve spent more time at the vet and urgent care than we ever could have imagined.  We have one more follow-up appt today and hopefully he can be cone-free.  I’m so lucky to have such a sweet and patient cat, because although he dislikes the cone, eye drops and meds, he deals with it in a fairly calm manner.  The ladies at the vet love him and always say how calm and sweet he is.  He sits on the scale without trying to run away and we don’t even use a cat carrier, because he enjoys the car ride.  Lucky me.  The late nights, remembering what meds need to be taken at what times (all 6 of them) and the driving back and forth are all worth it, because he’s showing great improvement!

In addition to all of that, we planned and executed a smash of a Boo Bash!  Everyone came dressed in well thought-out costumes and participated wonderfully.  We had a packed house, literally – I think we may consider moving or renting a facility next time.  Hahaha  It was the best turn out that we’ve had, so far!  Lots of fun costumes, silly food and great conversations set the party into motion.  We had so much fun.  How was your Halloween week?!

Oh!  I can’t forget that I also hosted a Giveaway for Stoic Design recently and one lucky winner received a Where The Wild Things Are Canvas!  Lucky girl.  If you missed your chance in entering the giveaway, not to worry, you can find a discount here!

This weekend one of my dearest friends came to town and stayed with us for part of the time.  It was so good to see him!  Then we had a fundraiser Saturday night, which kept us up past our bedtime.  I spent last night printing Roblins on yards and yards of fabric, and I plan on spending tonight sewing and prepping the shop for the Holidays.  I also need to make sure that I have everything ready for this weekends craft show.  Thanks for stopping by!

      Thank you! He’s had a incredibly rough month, but pulled through like champ! He has a bit of scaring from the stiches and a few scabs that need to heal, but once his fur grows back, you’ll never know. I’m glad to hear that you’ve been busy, it sounds like a positive thing!!! Can’t wait to hear all about it!
