I wanted to get the post up so we can stop in and fill each other in on what we've been doing!
I'll be back.
Blessings to all..... (sounded Christmasy)
Hey all- the season just brings out the best and worst in people- added activites, deadlines, overthinking things, expecting too much from others and ourselves...
the reason I say this is what Theresa said about her son. I think kids, relatives can "feel' when one is weak,,,and if they know the person well, it becomes an easy outlet to either release the pressure and be nasty, or be a hero and be kind. Think of a mouthy teenager- that is disrespectful to a parent- but comes off differently to a causal stranger. It is the same in nature....the "weak" ones get all the flack in the pack. You don't snap at the head of the pack......just my theory, anyway.
Pud- hope you are feeling better- put on some warm socks, sip some warm tea- and pick out an old movie.
Jenni- if this rain strom comes your way- you are getting a boatload of snow. Just from our ceiling leak that we are catching in tubs- Dh has collected over 200 gallons of water in barrels....can you imagine if we had not been home and it was still coming into the house! In Calif we get so little rain- you don't really know if your roof has a leak or not till this happens.
Pie- I will post the mint dessert in a seperate post- discustingly easy, and looks pretty great. Still hoping DH will change her mind- prayers are powerful and appreciated.
Cheryl- good to see you-
Rox- any leaks in your new home.....at least DH is home now to monitor it.
Ok- I know everyone is busy- just check in when you can- you are my extended family, and want to wish you a Christmas with moments of blessings, and peace.
I'm taking a break to eat some cheese and crackers. Swiss cheese My favorite.
Over the weekend we got to spend time with Laura and little Morgan. We gave Morgan his Christmas present before we leave for Liberty. It was a Crayola Airplane Pillow. He seemed to like it.
Today a charity came and took away a really nice chair. We just can't make it work with the Asian decor. We really tried. It was too big for the space we had it in.
I'm done wrapping and need to bake a few things.
Are you all ready for Christmas?
last night I assembled 15 cookie baskets- then this morning made masrhmallows and craisen chip cookies- now to just deliver them in this rain
Evening ladies. I started to post this morning, but wanted to catch up on the last few days of postings, so I waited. Of course, now I read so many things, I can't keep them all straight. Went to breakfast with my friend Sat. morning and had a riding lesson on Sat. afternoon. I rode a new horse & while the lesson was a good one, I was getting frustrated with the horse. I know that I need to ride all kinds of horses & deal with there quirks so that I become a better rider, but sometimes.....! Baked some cookies on Sunday, nothing special, just the normal. Well, going to start dinner. Jenni, so glad you are feeling better. I know that it was a difficult diagnosis for you at the beginning, but see what a difference the correct one makes! Love you guys.
Get off work early tonight and volunteered to babysit so my DB and SIL can go shopping. I know how hard it is to shop with a newborn and 2 other little ones. Especially since they also just moved.
I am on vacation tomorrow. WooHoo I am getting some cleaning done and a few things prepared for Christmas.
Honey told his parents that we are cooking Christmas dinner. I wanted to go to my brother's house Christmas morning before we went to my in-laws but that ain't gonna happen. I have cooked exactly one turkey in my entire life so I'm kind of nervous about it, but not as much as I was before I talked to my sister-in-law who is a good cook; she gave me tips for the turkey and the recipe for a potato dish that my girls loved when she made it last year.
Kallee- No more leaks that we can see. Yours sound horrendous!
Had a tough weekend, which I can't share details about.
Got some Christmas shopping done yesterday afternoon. Hope to finish tomorrow. Honey and I are heading to the mall in the afternoon, I think.
Hope everyone is doing okay.
Good Tuesday Morning!
The landlady and the furnace man just left. He just checked the furnace and vacuumed it out.
I'll bake banana bread today. Bubba works today and tomorrow then he's off til next Wednesday. I have everything wrapped with the exception of three gift certificates that I have to buy. If Bubba gets a bonus this year it should come on Thursday. We don't count on it as it is a gift, but it sure helps out at Christmastime.
I can't remember if I took my morning medicine. I hate it when that happens. I guess I'll find out soon enough.
I'll try to get back here later. Have a great Tuesday!
Jenni- You need to get one of those little pill holders that have space for morn, afternoon, and evening. I hope you do well today. saying a prayer for you.
Went to a Walking Buddy's breakfast tea this morning. Didn't have a good time though because my mind and heart just weren't in it. I have such a heavy heart. When things are not good at home, the heart doesn't do so well, as you all know.
Just got back from the thrift store. Got myself three new pair of jeans for $18. Borrowed money from youngest because I thought the total was going to come to $22 or $23 something, but the lady asked if either of my girls had their school ID with them because it would save me a couple of dollars. Fortunately eldest had hers with her. Not bad and now I'm set for a while.
still wet here- inside and out
hectic day here- I had the 2 little ones and they were not feeling good- which made it a challange.
Rox- your bird will be delish! I always put in a couple of oranges that have been pierced into the cavity- keeps the bird moist.
Jenni- have a great get-a-way
opps- gotta go- sorry, be back
Kallee- Doesn't the orange flavor permeate the stuffing?... Or do you not put stuffing in your birdie? Was you hubby able to stop some of the leaks? I think you said something about him fixing the gutter? Or was that someone else I'm thinking of?
Going shopping first thing tomorrow morning. Got one or two more things to get and we're done. yay! How'z everyone else's shopping going?

Good Morning All!!! Happy Day before Christmas Eve. lol I am so eager for Christmas to be here. I never looked forward to holidays before. Someone usually ruined it with alcohol. Now that those people are out of my life things are so much better.
Bubba has Friday, Monday & Tuesday off. Wouldn't you know it...there is a winter storm brewing and the brunt of it will hit the area we have to travel through. ( eye, yi-yi). Bubba is going to try to get tomorrow off from work too. This way we can leave in the morning and miss most of the ice and snow. If you are traveling for the holidays please be careful. Take a blanket, an empty food can, a candle, extra drinking water and chocolate candy. These things should get you through being stuck until help arrives.
