Halloween is over...

Hi everybody! Thanks again for sticking with me over the past few days, and for all your good wishes, hugs and prayers. I do appreciate them very much.
Here's hoping that all those friends living along the East Coast of the USA are keeping safe, my prayers and thoughts are with you. Stay safe.

Here I am starting to get better. The fever has gone, and has left me sweating, grouchy and unable to do anything for more than 5 minutes maximum, I just have no strength. The doc thinks I will need another week or 2 to get back to feeling normal, whatever normal may be!

I got a wonderful card from Diane - 1CardCreator. She blogged it yesterday, and you can see it much better on her blog that if I tried to take a pic with with my shaky fingers. I just loved the idea of get well witches, and the wonderful couldron of 'beaten gold' filled with all those bottles and ghosts. I was disappointed that I couldn't use all of those gorgeous images, but the next witching time will come, and next time I plan on being healthy! Diane is such a wonderful, kindhearted lady, and a fantastic friend. Thanks, Diane!

And I got a great prize from Tracy Holmes in Canada, awarded by the Hatters!


A wonderful set of Halloween stamps. I am gonna have fun with these next time.  And she sent a womderful card, which I will show as soon as I am able to hold the camera straight.
Thanks Tracy, and thanks Hatters!!

Okay, I need my rest now, this little post has completely knocked me out. Thanks to all who left loving messages and sent mails, they have done me so much good, and I will get back to you all as soon as I can!!

Take care, and stay safe!
