I think it's been a little bit since I've blogged last. I have enjoyed looking through all of your blogs though!
Do you make New Year's resolutions? I suppose I have said a few out loud when I was younger but I think as I've grown older I know I usually don't stick to them. I think the most popular one ever made is to lose weight. Well I would be happy to just maintain. Anyone who has lost alot of weight can tell you it's maintaining the weight loss, NOT the actual losing of it that is the most difficult. The most weight I have ever lost in one effort was 86 pounds. Right now I am about ten pounds more than I want to be. My jeans don't fit right and I just don't "feel" good...ya know? I remember when I was 16 years old I weighed 185. I am currently 30 to 35 pounds lower than that. Can you imagine weighing LESS than you did when you were 16? Well I guess I was just a big girl, huh?
As you know I didn't do alot of decorating for Christmas. I did finally drag the tree out of the back room and put a handful of ornaments on it but I didn't do as much as I have in years past. I am ready to get my house back in order. We bought a new pre-lit Christmas tree at Lowe's this year and it will stay in the box until next Christmas. The one that is up now will be donated to Goodwill.
The week before Christmas I was browsing through a store I had never been in before. Just a little local shop. Sometimes those are the BEST kind! I saw this wooden sign and immediately KNEW that I needed it. I usually don't buy this sort of thing. Probably because they seem to be all the rage right now and I like to be different. Today, you can find a sign like this that says just about anything. Since I have hung my "Thank You For Serving's" on the wall above the TV (or TeeVee as Spinster Stitcher puts it...don't you just love her?)....I knew this would fit perfectly......
Our dear friend and neighbor joined us for dinner a couple days before Christmas and we had a great time eating and exchanging gifts. She gave Masterchief this NAVY snuggie....
Remember when I stitched Flower Urn by Homespun Elegance? I received it in the mail all framed up last week.....
YES....the E block is finished!
That about does it for today's post. I have enjoyed all of your posts so very much this past week. You will have to excuse me at times.....I get the "blues" during the winter time. Sometimes I am able to shake it but when it hits me I'm in the dumps big time! On top of that I think I am in the very beginning of the dreaded ***menopause***. I find myself in a sauna of sorts at times, and other times I could cry at the drop of a hat! The combination of the winter blues and this new thing has really sent me for a loop. Masterchief has been so understanding and I've really noticed him being extra patient with me (except when he's hungry). OH....I just heard him start his truck. That means he's done putting the insulation up in the garage attic and I need to go heat him up some lunch. Must keep him fed, ya know! I went in to town this morning and when I came back all I saw was feet dangling down from the garage ceiling. Seems the ladder had fallen and he was stranded up there until I got home. He was up there for close to an hour before I got home. Poor thing! I better go feed my man.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas filled with memories to last a lifetime!
Thank you for all your heartfelt comments. I DO appreciate EVERY ONE!!
If I'm not back here before the new year.....HAPPY NEW YEAR to each of you!!!
Do you make resolutions?
