Another day.

Well, I finally got started on Christmas. I have finally found something that I can do and it looks beautiful. Not anything I'm doing just the thing that I'm doing. Can't wait to see everyones face.
I have been going through all my cook books hoping to see something great that I haven't tried, but still go back to the same old cookies and candies. My dh is complaining about all the books that are stacking up, plus I finally went through all my mag. and tore out all the things I wanted to make,notsure if I will ever get around to useing them but they were to good to toss.
It is cold today and I want to bake something, but I have so much to do not sure if I will get to it.
I found this in one of my mag. and just loved it.
A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.
So when trouble comes, it always does, I hope to remember this.
May the Lord wrap you in his arm until I can wrap you in mine. love m

Well today is rainy and gloomy. And I feel just that! Just found another idea for Christmas gifts. I go between yah and oh well. Everyday goes just like the other and I haven't started a blasted thing. I get what I need to get done but nothing for Christmas. I'm not sure a promise note will do. I know I will feel better when I can get started but mdh doesn't like anything in his way and with a small house that is impossible. I have started telling him that this year I want the Christmas tree up, and he looks at the table by his chair(that is where the tree needs to go, the only place it fits) and he would have to give up putting his things on the table. May I say it went over like a lead balloon. I have to ask, is it worth the struggle with him or just give up again and not feel like Christmas again. Time will tell.
I feel like we are going back to "The Little House on the Praire", all homemade things, I dearly love it when I get such special things, but I feel bad when I think that my family will only get homemade things. Wonder why I feel that way. Maybe , it is because I really don't do things very well. I just tell them, it is the thought that counts. Now that I see that statement, it sound very shallow. I think I will start to make bread this afternoon, that will make me feel better, just the smell will up my spirit. Hug your dear ones and hold them close, there is nothing that can make you feel great. love m

Well, winter came a bit early, Ug! I was praying for a long fall a short winter and a long spring with a short summer. They say becarefull what you wish for it could come true. Sure glad I'm not in charge of it all!
For some reason our OES dog is shedding, she didn't shed before and now it is coming out is clumps. She doesn't have anything wrong with her but I guess the puppy fuz is now falling out , sure does look funny.
I have pictures to put on here but I just found out Christmas is just about 70 days away and since I'm making the gifts , I better get with the program so I don't go crazy at the last min. Just love RL pictures, but couldn't leave her a message, not sure why. I hope the beauty of the season makes your heart sing.

I'll get more

My helper came over and wrote down what I need to do . I put some pictures, sorry not on ev
eryone, but will get more of everyone tomorrow. Just glad I could get any. Yah My daughter(aka my helper) helps me so much!!!!!!!!!! and does it without making me feel dumb. And she could, she knows me too well. See more pictures tomorrow,(I hope)

at her play,baileys first day with us

kisses, beauth queen,and I forget

4th birthday, and odds and ends

fun, fun, and ouch

I think every mom has watch as kids get a gift and then play with the box. Well , this weekend they discovered the new dog carrier. It is all open (metal) and large enough for them to get in. They took pillows, two kids, or one kid and the dog. I have pictures of them having fun being in the pin. They played for hours, not sure if I should put the pictures on the blog, I can see someone looking at them and saying that is child abuse. My family will appreciate it but not sure of strangers.
I felt so sorry for my 4th grandchild , she hit her toe and it reall hurt. I told her I had do the same thing and it hurt so bad , I almost wet myself. It didn't help her pain though. I am waiting to see if it is broken or not. Ug, I work so hard to keep them safe , then something jumps out and gets a toe, ok it didn't jump out, but sure hate to have them hurt.
If my helper comes over to show me how to put pictures on my blog(again) I have some really good ones(for me).
Wishing you blessings and love and laughter.

funny things

This week-end was sort of a quiet one. My husband takes over with the new puppy, I'm trying to train both of them.
I have been trying to find a small(softball size) and can't believe there isn't any around here. So, my hubby looked after he got of work, he found a red one(easy to see outside) the only thing is it doesn't bounce much its rd and weights about 2 lbs. Bailey loves it, just her size. In the house I just throw-itunderhand and it rolls so she can go get it. Ok, I played softball in my youth and early adult hood, I wasn't good but I enjoyed it. I'm not braging but I just want you to understand I can throw and catch a ball. Well, my husbands chair sits just outside the kitchen, and I throw the toys, ball to the kitchen for her to run and get. Ok, sunday Bailey brought her ball for me to throw so I tossed it over the t.v. tray and my hubby. Well, my plan didn't work, the ball hit the t.v. tray and bounced over it to hit his ankle. I am so lucky to have a husband that can see the silly side of things...I was so embarresd , it had to hurt, but we just laughed over how dumbit was.
When it was time to get Bailey to exercse, my hubby took her into the back yard for her to play fetch. When he came in he was winded, he said "boy I sure got my workout" I asked him what had happened he replyed "everytime I threw the ball she would go to it and sit down and wait for me to get it . I just told him she was training him well. Didn't I say I had to train them both?
I hope you can always see the funny side of life and are able to see your blessings , even the small ones. C PS I know that I have some wordsthat are wrong, but my spell check isn't working. use your imagination. All so, when I went in to correct it , it ate all the rest of the words, can anyone know why and how to stop it?

I give up

Ok, it has been a long time since I've been on this thing. And I had to reset my password. I found the paper my daughter made for me to get husband put my pictures on the (not sure where he put them) and they were not where they were supposed to be. So now I have to wait for him to get home, I know he is going to tell me he put them somewhere, not making since , I have been doing insurance today...all bad of course. Now I'm about to stroke out , I hate when things change and I don't know what to do. UG!!! I just need to somewhere and scream my stress level is to high to measure. Oh well tomorrow is another day. Sure hope I have a better day, Monday is always difficult day. I hope your day went better than mine. C
