I am really starting to feel better. My lungs feel better... and this year I am so far behind in decorating my home. Especially with me getting ill after Thanksgiving....BUT!!!! For the first time since my DH and I have been together in these 8 years... he will be arriving home late today! He will be helping me decorate the house. I just can't help myself, I find that I am feeling like I did when I went on our first date. I am really…Continue
Ok, who is planning to get some of their holiday baking done this weekend? What a great time to do it with all the snow and ice falling? There is nothing better than a warm kitchen, candles burning, carols playing and surrounding yourself with cookies!
Today I am featuring Large Batch Cookie Baking on my blog! If you bake all three recipes I have featured, you will have close to 500 cookies by the end of the day! Now, there you go! If your quilt guild's holiday party is coming up,…Continue
It's no wonder, I am not getting any quilting done. My BFFs are distracting me! They decided, it was a gorgeous day (55), we needed to do some shopping and go to lunch. We hit a few tiny gift shops that made you want to buy all the baby clothes( we don't have babies)! Now, we don't think we are loud...but, the shop keepers kept saying, could you shop here all day...your contagious chatter makes other customers want to stay longer. We went into Talbots, only because it was 50% off. I was…Continue

Each year around Christmas time, my sister and I would go over to my Aunts' house where they would have us help decorate their tree, complete with a train and of course...a warm cup of hot cocoa! This was a special time for my sister and I;…Continue
Good Morning Ladies, Took my sister to Bangor yesterday. The visit with her doctor prior to her treatment revealed some changes in her condition and her treatment. The CT scan she had a few weeks ago showed the cancer in her lungs has increased. She has been having numbness in her hands and feet and they changed her chemo yesterday to one that will not have that side effect. The good news is that it only takes an hour for her to receive this treatment. The bad news is we have to go…Continue
Hello everyone! Had a pretty great Thanksgiving! Not to say there were a few times, it did get a bit much for me to handle with my health. Yet, it was a great time for family to all be together. Lots of laughs, and of course all the food was wonderful!
I am sick now, as it was too much for me, I guess! LOL.... I wanted to share a picture of my youngest grandson Chase who is now 7 weeks old. His first time laughing. I love it! I cannot be near him until I am better.…Continue
