As most of you know, I help my Dad take care of my Mom (she has MS) and when needed, I help my Dad as his health is failing. Early last week he went into the hospital and we won't know until perhaps tomorrow if he will need heart surgery. My Sister In Law, Christine has come from New Mexico to care for my Mom and be there for the girls so that I could got to the show. We haven't seen Christine in 9 years...she is a much appreciated gift. More than she knows. I posted my favorite Halloween piece for our family Halloween Queen to see as well as my heart felt THANK YOU for dropping everything and making so many things possible at this time. If any of you would keep my Dad in healing thoughts and prayers...I thank you so very, very much.

There is an Arctic blast heading our way, and you can see the wind picking up and blowing the snow from the trees. I'm all snug at the busy house with the wood stove keeping us warm. There is plenty of hot tea to keep me happy as I work away through the next couple of weeks. It's the final push for me to complete work and shows that have been steady since July. I'm heading for the Heritage Show at the end of the month with new friends and old in tow. I won't be able to post much until my return in February, but after a couple days rest, I will be back at work with some goode things for all of you. I'm excited to look ahead to another wonderful year of goode friends, dolls and drawings ...and perhaps a new adventure or two. Let the cold wind blow and come gather yourself with winter projects and a goode creative spirit.

Bailey came running in from school with her boyfriend, Joe in tow. She was breathless as she exclaimed, "Pajamas on inside out tonight, we are having a snow day tomorrow!" The clouds have been marching in since late afternoon and you can feel the damp chill. They are at the school now for a basketball game and will come home to hot chocolate before bed. It's part of the spell, and best when a cinnamon stick peeks out over the edge. I'm sure that she will have Joe promise to wear his pajama's inside out and backwards tonight too. She will call Tim also and have him do the same (which he loves). The girls and I have been doing this since Bailey started school and I love the magic of it. I hope that we never, ever outgrow it!
