OK...look at me blogging again so soon.  There is a reason for that and we will get to it at the end of this post:)

But back to came and went so fast... do you agree?  
Now we speed through 29 days and Christmas will be over also....If I was 6 years old it would drag but being a spry 71 years old everything happens very fast for me!

We all celebrated at my niece's new house and it was a jolly time!  Of course I did not get any pictures but I do have pictures of my neighbors table which she gave me creative liberty to do what I wanted.

I decided to use the colors in her DR instead of  autumn colors:)

I went to Target and found the cutest set of "bottle washers" in her colors!

Then I just used eucalyptus and random flowers in her colors. I got the ribbon at World Market but I can't find it online right now.....

Anyway she loved it and I had fun:)

My outfit for Thanksgiving kind of matched it!

So now turn away if you are squeamish...I know I am....

Sunday night I was headed over to my neighbors house with some soup I made and were were going to eat, drink and be merry.....

I do not know how this happened but the next thing I know my fingers were slammed in the door and I was down on the front porch!

Cast of characters were: Cami....a leash....a key to lock the door..... a tupperware filled with soup and some parsley.  

I did manage to put the soup on the porch railing for my neighbor, wrapped my hand in a towel [bleeding like crazy]  and then I headed to an Urgent care which after 2 hours they said I need to go to the ER.


So I headed to Piedmont Hospital and just knew I would be there forever. 

And I was.

After XRAY's it was not broken but I needed stitches.

6.... to be exact.

I will tell you that the shot of lidocaine into the injury just about did me in.  But she said I was brave that most people would be crying...and I thought to myself....yeah...mostly kids. 

Then a tetanus shot and I was on my way after 4 hours.....this is where you need to turn away....

It happened at 5:30 and I was home at 11:30.  I will tell you that it was a lesson in patience all of that waiting around....I kept saying I was gonna leave but then my neighbor reminded me that I would just have to go back in the morning.

And there you have it.....just another exciting holiday!

Sorry about your injury! Hope it heals quickly. Your tablescape is beautiful!

Jen said...

OH NO!!!! So sorry-take care of yourself! Can't believe you were able to save the soup!

The tablescape is gorgeous, but especially love your Thanksgiving outfit.

barbara said...

OUCH!!!! That looks extra painful Sherry. When bad things happen to good people.

Your outfit is so festive! I for one love that I can wear sequins any time I please!

Goodness gracious, we don't need any extra holiday drama in 2023, yes? So sorry about the accident, and I hope it is healing as it should. We are sisters ya know...I have a thing with slicing my fingers and driving myself to Urgent Care or ER. I cook a lot so it's just what I do and really the only reason I feel I need a car. Hahahaha. This is all true. Your sister loves you. xox

Janelle said...

Oh dear!! So sorry you hurt yourself so badly that you needed stitches, and to add to that all that time in the ER. Wishing you full healing.
Love your outfit and the tablescape!
Be well!

Please take care of yourself! Whenever I try to hurry, something happens and I am learning to SLOW down and be 'mindful.' Great outfit and love the tablescape!

Oh, ouch! Don't even want to think about the lidocaine (hope that spelling is right). I have a teensy cut on my same finger right now that is taking forever to not be sore so yours... yikes! Hope you are healed and feeling your best soon.
