Important Message

This is so important. I had fleetingly heard/read at some point that there was a breast cancer that did not have the tell-tell lump. Recently I had my own scare of sorts...what appeared to be a bug bite, red, swollen and hot to the touch. Hubby kept saying it was just a bug bite not to worry about it, that it'd go away in a few days, but I wanted to make sure. I looked everywhere online for this nameless (to me at the time) breast cancer, I even looked for images, and I just couldn't find what I had heard/read about before or any info for this other breast cancer. I decided to just keep an eye on the "bite" and if it didn't get better soon, or started getting any worse, I'd go to the doctor. It appears, fortunately, that it really is just a bug bite. It burst and drained overnight while we were on vacation and when I woke up the swelling had completely gone down. It is still a little red, and I'm still watching it, but what if it hadn't been just a bug bite? Why isn't there more information, more readily available? Please click on the link below and watch the video. It just may save your life.

I love you my friends!

And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

Finished It! Friday: August 05, 2011

Hello friends!
This has been such a busy week. We went on a mini-vacation to the Great Smokey Mountains and had so much fun! It was the first thing resembling a vacation we've taken in a couple of years and it was awesome! Unfortunately, I didn't get a single yarny project completed this week to share with you, so here are just a few vacation pics instead!

After a morning of shopping in Gatlinburg, we decided to take a relaxing drive through Cades Cove...

We even got to see a Momma Black Bear and her cub, but I couldn't get a clear pic of them from the road. This little guy however was standing right by the road!

Jeremy did his research to find the fastest Go Carts in Pigeon Forge (without needing a driver's license so Damon could drive too) and we ended up here...

Here they are getting all buckled in....

I wish we had a better camera, but we have what we have and the next few shots are blurry, but I just have to share how much fun we were having!

Here's Jeremy......

and here both of the boys are....

Damon was really kickin' butt! Jeremy beat him once, but most of the time Damon was so fast he was lapping the other racers, he totally rocked!

Here he is in his favorite spot - the front!!

Finally, here they are getting on the Skyscraper ride that goes 150 feet in the air, and spins on a pendulum-like thing in 360° loops going 60 mph....whew! Better them than me!!! LoL...

I'm sure I'll have actual yarn-works to share with ya next week. I hope you enjoyed the vacation pics!
Have a great week my friends!
