My Surgery and a Little Hallowen

My Bags are packed, my pic line in and YES I hate to leave you
 I shall be having having a major surgery on Wednesday, October 21, 2009

I want to Thank you all that come to my blog website and for all your emails. Your thoughtfulness, and prayers. I do appreciate them so much. I tried to visit around, but I have been sick all week and not able to get all I wanted to get done. So know I have and will be reading your comments and emails.

I will not be able to type for a while, but should I talk a daughter into learning to run my blog, once I am home, in a week or so,
I will try to give you an update on how my recovery is coming.

This week I received lovely book on Christmas Decorating and Tablescapes from Susan, I peeked but shall wait to savor it as I lay in bed to recover.

Just wanted to leave you with a little something, here what sets on my tables for my daughter Birthday, and later I shall take the Halloween off and use it for Thanksgiving.
After our Mississippi Bloggers Luncheon, I made my gourds, sunflowers and pie pumpkins into an arrangement in my dough board and added a few Witches.
Very simple but I love this Witches Hat, was going to add it to a pumpkin, I just ran out of time.
Oh, but I love my new white tea set and that is a sneak peak of one of my new lanterns!
The table centerpiece I added baskets of pumkins, spiders, black birds.
While I in the hospital my daughter will have a Birthday. As in our family tradition they will carve jack-o-lanterns, roast hot dogs, and marshmallows. So I did just a little to make the table pretty before I go. I forgot to show the paper plates. I will have a cake ordered for her for this special day.

When I come home this is what will a wait me!
My new pumpkin tea set, on a tray with a magazine.
My grandson ensures me he will have me tea ready, I’m sure it will be ice tea. lol
Now I want to ask you all a favor! This is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
I ask that you all go make your appointments for a Mammogram and I also ask when you get the letter in the mail, ask the Doctor to give you the report, for as many as I have gotten, It will say you do not have Cancer, but it doesn’t tell you of any suspicious things or tumors that might be forming. You need that report!
As I leave Thank YOU All, Please Remember to
Save A Cup OF Tea For Me!
I shall miss you all!
Lady Katherine
I have a few telephone numbers and shall try and call,
Laurie at Bargain Hunting by Laurie, and also Becky at Holiday In The Sun 
are willing to write an update for me on their blog.
Bless you Laurie and Becky!
While I am gone go visit
Susan At Between Naps On the Porch, where she is hosting

  7. Miss Lady Katherine, I’ve dropped in just in time to know I need to be praying especially hard for your surgery tomorrow. I’ve been out of touch with blogging most of the summer…my apologies. I had a swarm of company that stayed the better part of three months. It was nice…but I missed having free time to blog and visit my buds like you. Your halloween decorations are precious, just like you…only you are not scary! You are lovely in all ways…can’t wait till you are back home and resting and recuperating quickly. I hope your grandson does have tea with you! :) Blessings…and praying for VICTORY in your day tomorrow~ Love ya friend… ~CC Catherine…your other Tea Bud!

  15. Katherine,

    I pray that all went well today but most of all I pray for a healing touch this evening as you recover.

    “Oh, Lord, bless this dear one and give strength to her and her family.”

  16. I’m only just “getting to know you” but the fact that you have things ready for your daughter’s birthday, while you will be in the hospital, speaks volumes. I wish you a speedy recovery. Take care.


  17. Katherine-I thought you had already gone and have been keeping you in my prayers–so now you have a surplus!! We have the same teapot! Wish I could send you a “Somewhere…” CD. Hurry back when you are able to and take care!

  32. Katherine, are you supposed to be up and on the computer? It was so good to get a comment on my blog from you. (No, you do NOT sound like a hillbilly)! I hope you are taking care of yourself and not overdoing things. I’ve said prayers for you every day and will continue. Take care of yourself. With love, laurie

  34. SO sorry I had to go. It was good to hear from you. I am not sure if this comment will go through or not. I wish I could figure out how to blog.

    I have to take Trish back to the doctor. I know everything is going to be okay. She is so young to be having medical problems.

    I love looking at all your picture. Trish and I both share your passion for a pretty table and good food. I am hoping to see you soon. LOVE YA CUz

  35. Katherine, you are just the most precious blogger ever! Bless your heart…I hope that your surgery went well and that you are recuperating quickly!
