What season is this?

Hello my friends.  I was doing pretty good last week posting more has now been almost a week.  No I haven't run out of things to talk about.  That would never happen to me.  I am adapting to a busier schedule and my migraines have returned. Several days in a row now, but the meds cut the pain to about 50% and that's good.  Talking, trying to explain something, vision, and my energy level , are all things that are affected.  I am supposed to be having blood work done but I can't find a lab close to me that send their draws to Quest.  Insurance is such a pain in the behinder.  Okay, on with the post.  My next post was going to be about these:
But then this happened.......snow.......and you know how I love snow.  I want to put up my Christmas decorations, oh yes I do.
My Sweet Hubby cleared my windows for me and left me a snow scraper on my door handle.  It also has been really cold.....20's but warmer up a little. 
Along with cold weather we get blessed with the buzzards again.  They are concentrating on our neighbors in the background of this picture.  That's a first, but a good thing as maybe we can get together and get rid of them.
Trust me, this isn't too bad.  There are times we can't even see out our windows.
This little one is who I am spending most of my time these days.  She keeps me busy.  She had me do a 3D puzzle this week.  One that changes scenes when you turn it slightly.  Well I had already had a headache but it brought on the migraines.  She beats me at concentration every time.  We have been reading lots of books.  She also wants me to do math flash cards with her....she is 4 and the cards are her brothers.  She is pretty good at math already. 
And here is Baby O thinking about escaping.  She is almost walking.  She is so much fun when she cuddles.  She is non-stop go.  What a handful.  I will be having her a lot this month as her mama is working out her 2 weeks notice plus starting her new job.  14 days in a row for her Mama to work. now.   Then in December Baby O. and her big brother will be going to a day care.  Since her mama will be working days this will be less confusing to them all.  I am okay with it.  I will still see her.  I know this will be so much better for them all.  Not that I want her to go to day care.......I don't but I will be close by for emergencies and when I want my Baby O fix.
I need to update my thankful things.  I don't know where I left off.  I think at 5.  Remember random and no order.
6.    Dropping off my grandson at CrossFit and seeing 8 of us with the last name the same all in one random place.  SWEET.  My son walked in and said "Wow, there sure is a lot of Messners in here."
7.  The owl swap.......some really cute critters making their way to the swappers right now.
8.  Being able to keep in touch with all my friends that have moved SOUTH.
9.  Living in a beautiful area with hills, changing leaves and beautiful snowfalls.
10.  Medicine that is helping my Yorkie control her bladder better.  Now I need some for my aging cat.  She isn't doing well.
11.  When you sweet readers leave me kind messages.  Thanks for all the comments on my simple cozy home.  They sure made me feel good.
12.   Winning a giveaway that I will post about soon.  I used to win so many but not anymore.  I don't like the helicopter was to register.  I know that's not the name.
13.  Our veterans.  We have had many in our son, husband, brother, fathers and grandfathers. 
14.  Thankful that we have ships like the U.S. George Washington that can help out in the disaster of  the horrible storm in the Philippines   They are able to make water for those that survived.  I think that is amazing.  My friend's son is on this ship.  God Bless those poor people that had to go through this.
15. ( I think this should catch me up. )  A warm home.
Sorry this is getting long........we could use a few prayers this week.
Our youngest son - 27 - has an enlarged heart and will be seeing a specialist.
Our oldest granddaughter- 10 - can't seem to get well.  She wakes up with her face swollen, miserable sinus issues and so tired all the time.  Her Dad, a teacher at her school, has her miss recess and lunch to bring her home for a nap during the day.  She had started her 3rd round of antibiotics and still had to go to the doctor yesterday.
My Mom hurt her back.  She had x-rays yesterday.  She is not patient at all.  I explained that my back took 3 weeks to heal.  Hoping it isn't serious.
We have a blogging friend that needs a lot of prayers......Judy.
Okay, I will leave you with all of this......(((((HUGS)))) to all of you.

Debby...You have way too much on you. I am so saddened to hear about all the illnesses and your dog gone headaches. You are on my prayer list so an praying for improvement all the way around. I adore my necklace. Have worn it continually since the box came in with Bud last night. The little owl sitting on the twigs is precious...he is on the coffee table. I love the other, too. The one in the match box warmed my heart after all the little matchboxes I have done. You asked. I get them at WallyWorld-there are a bunco in a package and they are real cheap (10 I think). I wanted to talk to you about us doing a Christmas banner swap...but now is not the time to bring it up. You know how I LOVE banners and I know how you LOVE banners. There must others of your swapping friends that love them, too. I would be winning to sponsor it if you were to tell me how to do it. When you are feeling better let me know what you think. It may be too late. Be sure to go to the blog to see my pictures of all the owls and my notes to each of the girls and to you. I think it turned out pretty well. Wish we were closer. Think of you all the time. genie

Debby, I do not know how you watch children with headaches...I could not. I will give you credit girl, you try to get it all done. Please take care of yourself. xoxo,Susie

Musings from Kim K. said...

Continued prayers flowing your way. I don't know how you have the energy to take care of little ones with a migraine. Thinking of you.

Anonymous said...

you truly live in a beautiful spot, I will keep your loved ones in my prayers, I had a sinus infection a few years back that would not leave, even with three different antibiotics, I was told to put oil of oregano under my tongue, you buy it the health food store, it worked! Have a wonderful weekend , i hope all are well soon, glad the dog is,

Kimberly said...

I am exhausted just reading this post. You do so much Debby and have so much on your plate. Take care of yourself. Thinking of you.

NanaDiana said...

Oh, Debby- I am praying for everyone you mentioned. Which Judy are you referring to that needs prayers?

I hope those headaches take a dive soon and leave you. I know how miserable those are to deal with and you deal with them a lot.

Wonderful things you are thankful for,Debbie. I saw a couple of the owls you sent to people. They are darling.

Here's hoping your weekend is a good one- xo Diana

Jean | Delightful Repast said...

Those are such beautiful photos, but my goodness, how do you manage to take pictures, post to a blog and do all the things you do?! I could not, under any circumstances, take care of small children with a migraine! (Do you have a big red S on the front of your shirt?)

ImSoVintage Laura Walker said...

Goodness, Debby, you have a lot going on. The migraines are awful enough without everything else. I am sending prayers for you and your family. Your grandchildren are just so adorable. xo Laura

Gina said...

We had a little snow too, but yours looks much prettier than ours did. Stay warm and I hope you're feeling better soon. Sending good thoughts to you & your family!

Julia said...

The snow is beautiful for pictures but I preferFall, lol..

So sorry about that migraine, that is no fun at all. I hope that it will clear up very soon. I think that you are doing too much and those buzzards seems to bring bad luck again.

I'm sorry about some of your family being sick and I will keep them in my prayers, even the dog has health issues and the aging cat. That is a lot of stress.

Watching children is fun but also draining.

Take care of yourself.

Shirley said...

Hi Debby, Prayers are coming your way from my house. I admire you for watching little ones when you don't feel good. It probably gives you something else to think about. We haven't had the snow yet. All of your little ones are precious. Hope you are feeling better soon. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Art and Sand said...

You do have way too much on your shoulders right now.

I pray that your granddaughter is able to get her sinus issues under control.

I pray that your son's enlarged heart does not become a major problem.

I pray that your migranes en d- no 3 D puzzles.

Your little green bug looks like an igloo.

Junebug said...

Oh Debby, can you get anmmore on your plate? Prayers and Hugs are being sent you way!

middle child said...

So many blessings and so many prayers needed.
And Migraines? I always thought they were hormonal and ceased after a certain age. I can't even imagine. I used to have them but not for a long time now. Bless you.

HollyC said...

I am so sorry to hear about your migraines. Our son has had them a couple of times in the last few years. He has vision problems, numbness in limbs and head pain with his. Thankfully he has only had them 3 times this year. You are wonder woman!I can't imagine trying to entertain little ones with a migraine. I received my owls!!!! They are all so adorable! I love each one's personality. The one you sent was awesome! His little wings are sunflower seeds!!! So cute and I love it that you use the ball jar lid. I am definitely going to use that idea as a base on some of my crafts, very clever. Thank you for all of the goodies. I enjoyed opening each one. You are so kind and sweet. I plan on blogging about the owls this weekend and can't wait. The ladies outdid themselves! So talented. Thank you so much for hosting this swap. Have a great night, Holly

Barb said...

What a great thankful list and such beautiful children. I do like the snow picture. Hope you feel better soon. I know about those headaches, my sweet daughter gets them.

Dewena Callis said...

I'm stopping to pray for these needs of you and your dear loved ones. You do so much for so many and keep such a loving spirit that I hope you can soon feel better to do all you have to do.

The snow is beautiful where you are, even with those darn buzzards. Have fun when you do start Christmas decorating.

Lynnie @ Vintage Gal Style said...

Hi, Not that I want snow already but it does put a pretty coating on everything...I'm just not ready yet for it and all the cold that comes with it.

Hugs, Lynnie

Prayers from Norway Debby, hope things calm down for you soon. I suffer from cronic migrane and can fully appreciate the ordeal. Blessings, Pam xx

Winkel's Crazy Ideas said...

By the way...what is a buzzard? Curious :-)

Edna B said...

Debby, first let me say that I love your new blog banner. It's fabulous!! I'm sorry to hear that your migraines are back and causing so much pain. I can't imaging taking care of small children with them. God bless you. And God bless your little furry ones. I hope they are much better soon. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers and hope that things will get better soon. Take care of you, hugs, Edna B.

vivian said...

Thats too bad about your migraines. I dont normally get headaches, only once in a while and they usually go away with a couple tylenol. so I dont know what a migraine is like. I hope I never do find out.
your little grand daughter is just adorable!
and one more thing.. please keep the snow and the buzzards at your place! LOL! It wont be long and we'll all be covered.. It has snowed here, but not enough to stick .... yet...
happy Sunday!

must love junk said...

You have such a great attitude and a thankful heart in spite of all your 'hardships' right now! I admire you for that (btw, the kids are adorable :)

Custom Comforts said...

Hope you start feeling better Debby. I used to have migraines quite often and after trying many different meds, found that Excedrin Migraine worked best with the least side effects. Hope you're up and about soon.
Wasn't that snow a real surprise?

Relyn Lawson said...

Holy moley! Look at all that snow. Feel better soon.

Hi Debby ~ I think you and your family need lots of prayers! I just got your message on my blog about you having to put your cat down tonight. I am SO sorry. I've had to do that before and it is horrible - like a knife to the heart. And then your migraines and other loved ones in your family with their medical problems - oh, boy! Me and my hubby are having a few medical issues going on right now too, so tell you what - I'll pray for you and your family and you can pray for mine! :-)
