High School Friends

A group of girls that I hung out with in School had our 3rd Annual Christmas party on Sunday. We had a great time, we did an ornament exchange to the Left/Right Story of Santa's Elf Lefty, and then we played Christmas bingo. Everyone brings an ornament to exchange and 2 or 3 dollar tree wrapped gifts. We started this group 3 years ago after our first class member passed away. We wanted to catch up and make more memories, not just meet up at the funeral home. If you have lost touch with your high school friends I have to tell you make the effort to reconnect. Now I am off to sew and stuff some Christmas ornaments for my family. Hugs to all be safe.

More snow

We got a little more snow last night which covered the ice at the bottom of the steps to get to the back yard. The fur babies are not having quite as hard a time getting up and down the stairs now. I wrapped all the gifts I had to wrap last night. Still waiting on a few to come in the mail. Have the Cali kids gifts put together, Becky will be here tonight to pick them up. She is going to mail them out tomorrow. Have been doing quite a bit of crocheting and knitting the last few months and have most of my hand made gift list completed. We put our Christmas tree up on Sunday and I have been loving the lights. Well off to do some more crocheting. Hope everyone is safe if you have bad weather and if not enjoy your good weather.

Winter Wonderland

It started snowing here on Thursday December 5. We got about 5 in of snow here in Festus. First time schools closed for weather and they have not reopened as yet. We have rural areas and the roads are not graded or treated. I am glad that I can stand to be in the house and piddle around otherwise I would have gone stir crazy by now. Randy and I got out today, paid a bill, did a bit of Christmas shopping and bought some new dog food to start mixing in with what we have now. Dinner at Ponderosa Buffet filled the car and then back home for a cozy nite in. If you had snow hope you had fun with it. I managed to crochet 2 hats and a set of wristlets or fingerless gloves. Now to get the Christmas cards addressed and in the mail.

When it rains it Pours.

Well in the last few weeks we have had the hot water heater go out and the wind blew some shingles off the roof. I was feeling pretty down until I did the Unity Blog Hop today. There was a repeating sentiment that occurred it was Good things are going to happen. Its like the Lord knew I was at a low spot, serious car accident that I am not totally recovered from, position eliminated at work and then the hot water heater and the roof, and sent me this hop today to remind me that he is leading me to where I should be. Thank you lord.

Was a busy day at home yesterday. 3 loads of laundry done and put away, Pot of ham and beans cooked, and started steak and gravy for Randy. Went to big lots and found 2 cds Carole King and Cyndi Lauper. Saving them for when Randy is gone. He's one of those tv on for white noise when he's at home by himself, I on the other hand can have complete quiet or my favorite Cd's playing. Good for my crafting or even cleaning.

Had a wonderful day yesterday. Sage, Sassy, Sassy's mom Carolyn and I all attended an all day crop. Got several cards made and will be going to another crop at the end of the month with them. I love having creative time with no interruptions which is what you get at a crop. Turn your phone off and just create. You also get the benefit of your friends input on a project if you are unsure of the elements or colors you have used. Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Well I see I have ignored this blog for quite a while. Lots of things have happened over the past year or so. Was in a serious car accident in Jan 28, 2013 which totaled my car and shattered my left femur and fractured my left hip. Pins were put in and after a 2 week hospital stay and 1 week rehab stay I was able to go home on Feb 15. After PT and healing was able to return to work in June of 2013. Hmmm worked for 4 months and then after 20 years of employment my position was eliminated on October 7, 2013. So Right now I am back doing PT for a frozen shoulder and am trying to get back into the crafting habit. Hope to be on here more often. Any legitimate work at home offers or ideas will be greatly appreciated.
