Another holiday week and back to work

Happy Monday everybody.  Hope everyone had a wonderful blessed Christmas.  I know that I did, and believe me I got way more than I deserved. (Thank you honey!)
I didn't intend on taking time off from blogging but I guess I did.  :)  I have been so busy enjoying my time off and  being with family that I  haven't had much computer time.  I hope to get back into the swing of things soon.  I am in the middle of making my list and goals for the new year. Do you make new years resolutions?  I sometimes do.  Last year I made one that I really wanted to do and I stuck to it.  I wanted to read my bible in a year and so I went to a online source www.bibleinayear.org and signed up. It made it easy to stick to it, and it was motivating. As of now I have today's reading and tomorrow's and I will have completed my last years resolution. Not sure what I want to do this year. But thinking it should most likely include fitness and getting healthy. There is also some new things I want to learn to do, I also want to update my web page and try to figure out what direction that should go in.
I am back at work this week, having the last five days off was nice, but I have Wednesday and Thursday off this week, and then the weekend will be coming shortly right after so I feel like it should be a good,short week. I am going to concentrate on putting away my Christmas decorations this week too.  Most likely any spare minute will be putting it all away.  Although I know it is going to take me a while to do it. Do you still have your decorations up?  If you have taken them down, when do you take them down.  Do you have to do it alone? or do you have help?  I seem to have to take most of mine down alone, although hubby is great about helping me get the boxes together and put back in place in the garage.  :)  But over the course of the next few days, I will start gathering my decorations around the house and make piles and then it is easier for me to pack back up. Plus it doesn't seem to take as long that way.  Not sure why, but it doesn't.  Guess when you break that big job up into little jobs it goes faster.
Over the next several days I am going to get back to my list making  and try to get my mind organized and cleared out for the new year. Is this a "me" thing or do you all do this too? 
Plan to get around for visits soon, but please let me say thanks for hanging in there with me over the last several months as I know my post have been sporadic.  One thing I plan to do in the new year is be a better blogger buddy. 
Gonna scoot, because as you can tell, my mind is jumbled and I feel as though I am just rambling.  Have a great afternoon!
Hugs!

A little more Christmas around the house.

Just thought I would take a few minutes to share with you some of the other pictures around the house.  I wish I had felt up to doing the village and going all out this year, but with work and life in general there just wasn't as much time as I would have liked between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year.  I hope to get some pictures of our table laden with goodies, as well as the our tree with the packages.  Hopefully I will remember to get pictures of that before we tear into everything.  But until then, here are a few more shots of my home for the holidays.

Sorry this picture is so light.  But this is the quilt rack in my family room this year.  Simple!

DSC01347

A few trees in crocks in my dining rooms.

DSC01367

A simple little tree on the kitchen counter.  I love the little framed stitchery on the wall. 

DSC01368

My little tree in the guest bathroom.  I was all about simplicity this year, but it puts off the softest glow.

DSC01372

Here is my poinsettia in my dining room.  It looks kinda droopy here, but it is very full and pretty.  Guess it needed water when this shot was taken, huh?

DSC01382

I just really like how this candle is displayed.  The small greenery surrounding the candle is so real like.  Again, simple but pretty.

DSC01386

Here we are in the kitchen again.  Don't you just love the little tree in the coffee tin.  This is one of my favorites.  So country.

DSC01389

This is the wreath that is hanging on my front door this year.  Snowmen!  Gotta love'm!

DSC01380

Well there you have it, a few more snippets of my holiday decor. I know this week will be busy with family and such, but I hope I can add a few more shots, I haven't made any of my front porch, but will try to get to that.

Hope everyone is having a good week so far.

Hugs!

The Christmas Dining Room

One of my favorite rooms to decorate is my Dining Room.  This is where I use my love for snow and snowmen.  Let me know what you think? Got any new ideas for me.  Please share.

My little tree is crooked.  Oops. Guess I need to fix that!

DSC01352 DSC01378

This is my snowman collection.

DSC01355 

Just a simple tablescape, but I love the simplicity of it.

DSC01377 DSC01356 

Those are just a few shots of my dining room.  Now for some pictures of my kitchen table and kitchen. Sorry they are blurry. I need to take some different ones. 

DSC01349

I think I will post more later.

The house tours continues

I hope you all enjoyed having a  glimpse of our family room, now I want to show you my Living Room  and our tree.  In my family room, as you could see, I have a primitive country tree that has ornies, and homemade ornaments, I love the simplicity of that tree.  Meanwhile, in my Living Room, I have my traditional tree.  This is the tree that I have all my children's ornaments on, things they have given/made for me and ornaments from vacations, places we have lived. My sentimental ornaments are on this tree.  I also always use multi colored lights on it, because that is what my kids prefer on this tree. As I have mentioned before, I didn't do as much decorating, and you will notice that my kids kinda skimped on the ornaments.  Believe me when I say, I have at least triple the amount of ornaments that you see on here.  But that is okay. 

Can you see me little sled, I picked this us this summer at a auction for pennies, and knew that I would use it to put under my Christmas tree with my Victorian Boyd's Bear.  Love it.

 

DSC01358

Here is the table that sits at the entrance of the foyer, looking into the living room.

DSC01357

Some of my bear collection in the little cradle.

DSC01362

A little close up of the sleigh. I will have to get a better one before we have Christmas.

 

DSC01365

Stop by tomorrow for the Dining Room.  K?

Hugs!

What a week

This has been one busy week, and I am sorry that I have been such a bad blogger friend.  I just can't seem to stay caught up no matter how hard I try.  Two nights this week I have been out of the house.  Tuesday night I was at the church and last night I got a call that my daughter had been in a automobile accident and I was at the ER.  Fortunately she is okay and is at home taking some pain meds, but overall she is fine and I feel so blessed. 

However I wanted to stay true to my word and at least post some of the decorating that I did.  I didn't do nearly as much this year as I would have liked too, but I just ran out of time and I know I will not have the time to take it down and put it away the way I would like, so suffice it to say, it is what it is.

So sit back and enjoying visiting my home.

This is the mantle in my family room, with some of my Santa Collection.

DSC01338

Sorry this picture is so light, it takes away from the charm of this little display. 

DSC01373

 

Some of the little goodies under my prim tree. Next to the fireplace you can see some of my favorite little stools.  Aren't they adorable.  I have a thing for them.

DSC01340

Here is my dough bowl filled with jumbo balls and pine sprigs. I wish I had a better shot of this.

DSC01342

Again, my prim tree, and then tomorrow I will show you my Living room tree.

DSC01332

I hope you can stop by for the rest of the tour.

Hugs to all.

Another weekend has come and gone

mommysick And I was sick the whole weekend and I still am.  About the only thing I did this weekend but lay in bed and take hot baths and watch TV, tissuebetween blowing my nose and drinking thera flu.  Sounds like alot of fun huh?  My poor nose is raw, and I have been using tissue with lotion  and Vicks.  Good stuff, but it still hurts to blow my nose.  But couldn't imagine how my poor nose would feel if I hadn't of used it.  I also went  and picked me up some Vicks to rub Vickson the tip of my nose so that I could breath. Have you ever done that.  I used to do that with my kids when they were small because I don't particularly like using inhalants.  I have been a lovely looking lady this weekend.  Good thing Michael loves me, chicken soupcause I haven't looked to lovable.   Michael has been taking good care of me, feeding me lots of  chicken soup and liquids.  He says I look and sound pitiful. I know I feel it, hoping this is about over.  Not sure how I will make it through work this week if this keeps up.  Please remember me in prayer if you think about it.  I would really appreciate it.

One thing I did do this weekend, although it took me a while and presentsundertreeI was exhausted afterwards, is I wrapped ALL my Christmas presents.  They were building up and I knew I would have a marathon of wrapping to do if I didn't start.  So everything that I have purchased is wrapped.  Now I will only a few other things to wrap.   I did finish up my shopping online tonight, so hopefully everything will get here in time.  I think the only thing that is left is my goodies for the kids stockings.  Which I will work on my list during the week for that.

Anyway, just wanted to pop in and say hi.  And I didn't forget about you all.  I just have been really under the weather.  I hope you all are doing wonderful and will have a blessed week.  Will have to get around to visit with you all soon.  Plus I have more of my Christmas decorating pictures to post.  Will try to get them up for you this week. 

Hugs,

Cindy

My Prim Tree

Wanted to take a few minutes before I call it a night/weekend.  I promised some pictures of my house, but will tell you that I am not happy with the way that they turned out.  Kinda blurry.  But it gives you some idea.  This year, I didn't decorate the way I usually do, I didn't put nearly the amount of things out this year as years in the past.  But since time is of a essence, I just did a little bit.  First I think I will start in my  family room.

DSC01332

Of course, the tree is the focal point of this room, and I couldn't be more happy with how it turned out.   I love this tree.  The soft glow of the gold lights on it makes all the difference.  Years before I have had multi colored and all white, but the gold/amber lights, give it the old 'flame' look of candles.  This tree houses all my handmade type ornaments.  Underneath the tree, I use a old quilt as my tree skirt and this year I filled it with some old toys and bears.  I really wish there was more room, because I have a sled that I like to display under this tree, but this year, I didn't think it would work.  After this picture was made I added a old rusty tin star to the top. 

I hope you enjoyed a sneak peek at my prim tree.

Hugs!

Tuesday Thoughts

I hope this finds everybody doing well and from the little glimpses I have had when reading or visiting your blogs it sounds like all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know we did. Traveling to Kentucky was long but we had a wonderful time spending it with family. Of course, the food was plentiful and tasty. Since our actual meal was the fifth one for my sister this year, and my parents were leaving town the day after we left, mom sent all the leftovers home with me. Needless to say I am still eating turkey. Since my days are long and I am so tired when I arrive home in the evening, I have been enjoying not having to cook.

I still don't have things quite back to normal, but fortunately when I left for my moms, I had cleaned my house so I came home to a clean house. Granted since we have gotten home we haven't been doing so well keeping things picked up. But hoping that in the next couple of days things will come together a little bit for me.

I have really been struggling with some personal issues and I think that has had me just a little bit more moody and exhausted than normal. I have been seeking some peace through scriptures and one that keeps popping up for me is "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV This passage over the years has really helped me....as well as the old adage " One day at a time". I know from past experiences that this scripture holds alot of power for me, I have seen it. So why do I always doubt when things seem so "hard, miserable". I pray that God will not let these trials steal my joy during this holiday season. But my body and my mind get so tired.And I know when that happens, I lose joy! Does this happen to any of you, or is it just me? Sometimes it makes me wonder if I don't have enough faith or what I am doing wrong. Is it me?

I read one post this morning that really was beneficial for me. I could see me all over this post. Feel free to read Broken Vessels entry from Dec. 1.

I need to scoot for now, but I hope you all are having a blessed day.

Hugs!
Cindy

Black Friday





Are you out today in this? Stores opening at o dark-thirty, racing and pushing and shoving....






 
 
While everyone is out racing around doing this today, I am at home doing this....Having my meal with my family.



Did everyone have a great Thanksgiving day?
Most likely Michael and I will leave mom's some time tomorrow, so I might not get back to the computer until I get back home.  For those of you that are traveling have a safe trip home.  

Blessings to all,
Cindy

Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!

I Thank Thee

O Thou whose bounty fills my cup,
With every blessing meet!
I give Thee thanks for every drop—
The bitter and the sweet.

I praise Thee for the desert road,
And for the riverside;
For all Thy goodness hath bestowed,
And all Thy grace denied.

I thank Thee for both smile and frown,
And for the gain and loss;
I praise Thee for the future crown
And for the present cross.

I thank Thee for both wings of love
Which stirred my worldly nest;
And for the stormy clouds which drove
Me, trembling, to Thy breast.

I bless Thee for the glad increase,
And for the waning joy;
And for this strange, this settled peace
Which nothing can destroy. --Jane Crewdson (1860)

Heading Home


Traveling to Kentucky for Thanksgiving.
Just a few prayers/verses to ponder on and give thanks!


    Psalm 31:19(NIV)How great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in you.
    Psalm 95:1-6(KJV) "O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker."
    Psalm 100(KJV) "Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations."
    Psalm 107:1(NIV)"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever."
    Psalm 145:7(NIV)They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.
1 Chronicles 29:11-13(KJV)

"Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom;
you are exalted as head over all.

Wealth and honor come from you;
you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
to exalt and give strength to all.

Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name."

It's done!

Hi ya'll!  So glad you got a chance to swing by and visit with me for a few minutes this morning.  I can't believe another weekend has come and gone and we are into a new week.  I had a very productive weekend though, and for that I feel such a sense of relief.  I actually had some time to spend in my bible study and bible reading.  What a treat. 

Anyhow, I got my house decorated for Christmas and I am so happy.  I normally don't decorate until the Saturday after Thanksgiving, but since we are going to be in Kentucky for the Thanksgiving holiday, and will not have alot of time when I get home I thought it best to go ahead and put it up.  Whew it was a two day job, and believe me when I say every muscle in my body aches.  Up and down steps, squatings, lifting, etc. about did this old body in. So now my focus will be on buying and wrapping presents when I get back.  I have only bought a few little gifts. But I do have my list made of ideas. That will be a big help for me.

I am going to try to take some pictures of the house, but not sure if I will get it done before I leave for Kentucky.  If I don't then will try to get some up for you to see when I get back home.

K...just wanted to give you a update as to what I am up too.  I hope you all are having a great week.  What kind of Thanksgiving plans do you have.

Blessings,
Cindy

Can you believe this week is gone too?  I can't believe that it is Friday already, but I am so happy.  I am looking forward to this weekend.  It is going to be a cold, dreary weekend from the reports that I have heard, but that is okay.  I plan to put on Christmas movies, and Christmas music and decorate my house.  Looking forward to putting our first Christmas together.  Just me and the hubby will be working on it tomorrow, but my goal is to get everything done except for the ornaments on the trees, and when the kids come over on Sunday they can do that?  I will take some pictures when it is all done and show you.

Many thanks!

Let me start this by saying thank you for the nice comments, emails, that I received from this post. Believe me when I say that your thoughts and prayers were felt by not only me, but the whole family. The memorial service was simple beautiful.  We have been back home for a week and trying to settle back into our routines. It is taking time but we are getting there.  We were blessed with great weather while we were in Texas for the funeral.  On the morning that we  Betty was buried the  weather was 80 degrees and it was sunny.  A perfect day. It's still hard for me to believe that it's over.  Finally all her suffering is in the past.  I can't tell you how much that comforts us knowing she isn't in any more pain. So again, thank you!

We got our first snow here last night.  It didn't stick but while I was driving home from work it was snowing like crazy.  As I was driving in it, it was coming right at me.  I hate that.  Granted I don't like to drive in many weather conditions except sunshine, and don't like it if it blinds me.  :)  Our temps for the next 10 days is only suppose to get around the mid 30's.  Thinking it is time to throw another blanket on the bed, or cuddle up next to a fire.


I am trying to get myself psyched up for Christmas.  Not so much the holiday as I am all the work involved in decorating.  I am so behind this year.  I haven't really done any shopping or baking, nothing!  I have a partial shopping list made out but not sure when I am going to find the time to get it all done.  We are planning on putting our trees up this weekend.  Our plans are to head to Kentucky either Tuesday night or Wednesday for Thanksgiving. I am looking forward to being at my mommas.  Not to mention I will finally get to meet my little nephew Caleb. We actually will not be celebrating with our big meal until Friday, so no black Friday sales for me.  But if you want to check out some, the ads are already out there. Mom and I usually do some shopping that day but not this year.

I guess I should scoot for now, I will try to get back soon.  I hope you are all have a wonderfully blessed week so far.

Hugs!

Heaven Bound

Update:  This post was written yesterday but couldn't get it posted until now.  11-6-08

What do I say?  I am drained.  What a busy several weeks we have had and as I write this, I am on a airplane heading for Houston.  For those that know over the last several months I have asked for prayer for Michael's mom Betty.  Yesterday, she went home to be with our Lord.  We have been blessed to have her as long as we did considering the diagnosis she was given in January.  She was in much pain toward the end and I am so glad that she isn't in pain any more.  Over the next several days, I know it will be a flurry of activity and not sure when I will get back to post.  I know we are due back home on Tuesday afternoon/early evening. I hope you will remember us and Michael's family in your prayers as we go through this. At the same time, I got a phone call last night telling me my aunt also passed away.   This is my dad's oldest sister, so please remember him and my family, cousins in the passing of their mother. I know as hard as it is to say goodbye to our loved ones, I know they are in a much better place. 

Over the last several weeks  I have had a time getting here to post. Seems like my life just keeps getting busier and busier with work and Tori's sports and personal issues with her. My work schedule has changed and it has drastically had a effect on my life.  There just isn't enough time in the day for me to get everything done and my computer time is really lacking.  My hope is soon things will get back to normal, but  with the holidays fast approaching and shopping to be done. 

We had a nice visit with my folks when they were here this past weekend.  We had a chance to get to Lancaster Pa.  It was simply a perfect day for shopping and wondering shops.  The whole time we were there my mom wante4d to me to pick out something for my upcoming birthday and I couldn't decided.   Needless to say I came home without anything.  She wasn't real happy with me .

 

Need to scoot for now as my power is getting low and don't want to lose this.  Be back as soon as I can.

Hugs to all,

Me

Time is running out

Oh my, time is really getting away from me.  Sorry it has been a bit since my last post, but seems like when I have time to post, I don't really have anything to share.  This past weekend, should have been a busy weekend for me, but I wasn't feeling all that well. So I let some things slide.  Which isn't a good thing since my parents will be coming in from Kentucky tomorrow.

On Saturday, the weather was gloomy and rainy and so I stayed in my jammies most of the day.  For some odd reason my whole body ached, and I had chills and then I would get hot.  Go figure!  Anyway, I just kinda was lazy that day.  But I knew I had tons I needed to do on Sunday so I woke up rarin to go.  My handy little list in hand and I was ready, until Michael mentioned going out for breakfast.  I love eating breakfast out.  So off we went. Seems afterwards  I went downhill.  I think it was the eggs at breakfast that made me sick.  I spent the rest of the day sick to my stomach.  (Recently I found out that I have a allergic reaction to eggs and therefore I order and eat Egg Beaters) However I am thinking my order got mixed up and I ended up eating eggs, but believe me I paid the price.  Even though we still had to do errands we were quick about it so that I could get back home.  The day turned out to be a perfect fall day and even though I didn't get alot done, Michael got the yard work done and trimmed all the bushes, and cut back flowers and got everything winterized.  Thankful that is done.

Back to work I went yesterday and trying to get back into my routine.  Although this is a short week for me.  I plan to take Friday off so that I can spend it with my parents as well as go to Tori's football game.  Friday night is senior night, and her school does a big thing for the seniors so that is one of the reasons for my parents visit. Unfortunately they have never gotten to see her cheer (live) in high school so this will be a first.

I think Saturday we are going to head to Amish country, Lancaster Pa..  My mother and I love it up there and it is great this time of year.  I can't wait.  It will be perfect if it isn't rainy.  I can handle the cold, but not if it is wet on top of it.   Karen at My Colonial Home did some great posts on Lancaster on her recent trip. Take a look at all her pictures and you'll have a idea of what we are in for.  Not to mention, spend some time just looking around her lovely blog.

On Sunday since my boys will over visiting with my parents, I plan to make a nice dinner.  This isn't the norm anymore now that the boys have grown up and aren't living at home.  Boy do I miss that time of sitting down at the table all together as a family.  So this will be a nice treat for me to savor.  Granted, I know that football is going to be in on the day too.

On Monday I will be back at work and my parents will be on the way home again.  So this is going to be a short trip for us all, but one that I look forward too.  This is a brief summary of the days ahead, but I wanted you to know why I am not around.  I will be back first part of next week if everything goes okay.  (By that I mean, I haven't gone out of town) Every day Michael and I keep waiting on news of his mother.  She is terminally ill and we know that we don't have much more time.  At the moment, we have tickets to fly out to Texas in a couple of weeks to visit and help out the family.  Just don't know if we will have to go before that.  So basically letting you know that I will get back when I can.


Have a wonderful Halloween.

Smells at home

Girlies, I just have to tell you that my house smells heavenly.   This morning I am sitting here Paula Deen Candlesenjoying one of my treats from my giveaway win.  It is a Creme Brulee candle by Paula Deen.  I don't know if you have ever seen them or had one, but if you haven't it is a must.  I absolutely love everything about it.  And it is so pretty too.  All country like with it's metal lid and little handle.  Too cute.  Oh well.  I just had to share.  Thinking this is a good idea for a Christmas gift.  Thanks Judy for this simple pleasure this morning. 

Off to get some work done.  My folks are heading this way this week so a girl must get her house all spic and span. 

Tootles for now,

A little blog fun!

I saw this on another blog that I enjoy visiting and I wanted to give it a go too....




You Are a Pumpkin Latte



You are always up for a celebration. You are a very festive person.

You look forward to every holiday, and you are nostalgic for good times after they're over.



You appreciate the small things that make life special. You love little treats.

You often look at the world with childlike wonder. There's so much to enjoy!
