and seeing upcoming temperatures of 24 degrees, in the south shocking! I wondered what to do around the busy-ness of the holiday season approaching (a little too fast).
Then I got these in the mail!
My latest goodies from the WONDERFULLY talented Alicia Paulson! I can't wait to get started. She sure knows how to get me in the spirit of the holiday!
Then hubby gave me a great (keep her busy so she doesn't start on me about shopping) giftie! An IPad! I do believe I am an Apple lover after this. We are thinking of converting all of our computers now!
Now for the big news and bragging on my part! Hubby has retired after proudly serving our country for 30 years! He reached the highest rank possibly for an enlisted person, Command Sergeant Major!
I will have to devote an entire post to him soon.
We are excited about his new opportunity/career! I know he will be a huge success at this endeavor, just as he was in the military!
Finally, Bentley and I want to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving! We will be back weighing a few extra pounds next week. Love you all!
This world lost one of its most beautiful people. My Aunt Lynda passed away. She will be loved and unbearably missed for as long as I live. For those of you that prayed for her and sent her precious thoughts, I appreciate it.
I will be posting again soon. I just wanted you all to know what is going on. Thank you again for thinking of my aunt and of me.
Because this is my happy place I will not give all the details, teehee! Let's just say the last time I planned to post my neighbor's tree landed on, not one but two of our vehicles! My poor boy, hasn't even driven his car and it is already in the auto hospital! Then what happened to me???? Poor Poor Bentley and I got the flu! We were on the couch for almost three (yes three!) weeks, feeling somewhat sorry for ourselves! Like I said this is a SMALL bit of how it has been going! However, we are EXTREMELY fortunate because things could be so much worse! Overall, we've got it great, and I appreciate everyday of my life!
Hubby even bought us new monkey's to love, but we were still pitiful! Okay, the monkey's did help, especially the royal B Man!
So, I will be spending the next few days or so, attempting to get all email/blog caught up! Well, with the exception of a small trip to the dentist tomorrow and winter storm warning (you know how us southerners are, PANIC!) purchases!
I am going to continue my cake decorating classes starting in February! As you can see, I need lots more instruction, teehee!!
Next on my crafty list is Alicia Paulson's Ollalieberry Ice Cream Quilt and a beautiful fleece blanket with big flowers on it! Wish me well, it has been awhile since I crafted anything, except a few cards!
I hope you all had a great holiday season and have the year ever!!!!
It is the boys (more mine, I do believe) new school curriculum.
That last pic, is just my manuals!
It is also a weeks worth of work! It literally took me that long to unpack, organize make a gazillion copies and get all ready. While I was multitasking with the school and watching Martha, I was pleasantly surprised!
Have you ever seen someone on TV that just makes you smile? Just a regular person, not a "star", although she should be! Well, I did! She was on Martha the other day making the cutest craft goodie. I just had to go to her website, then find out if she had a blog. I wrote her a little note and she wrote back, what a sweetheart! She does blog, WOOHOO! Here is the link:
If I had to vote for someone to have their own TV show, Cheryl would be right up there with the Queen Alicia Paulson and the Goddess Laura. I wrote this prior to reading The Crafty Buffet bio, only to find out her goal is her own show!
Where is that petition?
I have also been playing with my new (early) birthday giftie! I will unveil it soon, I am so excited and it is not even a puppy!
Well, I am off, out of town again! I hope you all have a great Labor Day holiday!
