We had snow last night. The limbs of this pine were touching the ground from the weight of a heavy wet snow. Thankful we didn't lose power, like the county north of here. We had snow, then a mix, then some rain , then snow again. Oh ,I am not ready for this. :(:(
I am surely late posting this.This is my oldest grandson. He attends college at University of Salt Lake City . This youngman was wore out when he came to his aunt Angie's for dinner. We had a wonderful day, with many blessings. Now it's time to get ready for those Christmas dinners.:):)
That's a good shot of me visiting a store at Peggy's Cove.:):) The village is like it would have been many years ago. The modern things are hidden well, to keep that old look. Peggy's Cove is in Nova Scotia, Canada. We took a cruise out of New York about 4 years ago. I loved it. That's a trip I'd love to take again. I have been thinking of things I would like to see, you know like a bucket list.:) With Thanksgiving here and Christmas around the corner.....the things I want to see the most are my , family and friends. I wish all of you wonderful times with your loved ones.
Went to this new shop, called , Three French Peas. It was all decorated for Christmas. Sorry, didn't had the flash on, fooled by the background lights. The first tree is decorated with big candies and sweet snacks(not real). The second had silver and glass like ornaments. I should go back for some better pictures. It was very crowded there yesterday, and the shop is small. Of course, the trees took up lots of room. I think there was Five trees. Wishing the new shop great success.
Yikes, what have I done? I took my camera out to get pictures of my birdhouses. They have all turned out with this weird pink color. Hope it's not my camera. I miss our birds. Maybe it's the wind, but I have not seen many birds around for some time.
Now she's a grown cat with plenty of cat-a-tude !!!! You can tell it's getting colder...the cat sleeps more. It's funny how long she can sleep. She only slept in this bed when she was a kitten . Now you'll find her everywhere. She does like being by the fire in winter.
Wish I could have junked here. Spotted this place on our way to D.C. three weeks ago. It's too windy here in Tipton to do anything outdoors. So being inside looking for treasures would be fun. Yes, I could be doing housework of various kinds.....boring !!! I just finished cleaning the kitchen , so that's enough work for now. I'll do more in an hour or so. Don't you think one should wait at least an hour after eating to do housework...isn't that the old saying, LOL.
Starting at the top, this is part of Rebecca Ersfeld's booth. She had so many beautiful things , and if you know her, you know she's a beauty herself. I got one of Donna Reyne's candles, burlap bags, the "joy" blocks, gift tags and flavored cocoas. The linen rosette was a gift from Rebecca to me, how very kind. Donna gave me the cone ornament, as a gift also, this lady's a sweetheart. The Hortons gave a 1/4 pound of fudge to everyone in line buying something. WOW. There was cookies, brownies, crackers and spreads, plus lemonade and warm cider for everyone in the store to enjoy. It felt like a party for friends. If you ever have a chance to attend any open house at Horton's , please go. You won't be sorry . You will meet the nicest people. My only regret , was not getting to stay longer....but I'll go back this coming week and get a few more things. You can't see it all in one trip.:):)
Today is a day to remember our troops those that served and those that are still serving. The top is the Korean Memorial and the wall of stars is the WW2 Memorial (4,000 gold stars...each representing 100 fallen).. Sorry I have no pictures of the Veitnam and Iwo Jima memorials. But I thank all of you.
This photo is from one of the open houses at Horton's in Tipton. D'Reyne is the decorator, she is awesome, and I rarely use that word. This Saturday , I am going to the Christmas open house with my sisters. I am truly excited about it. I feel like I did as a kid. My sisters and I will explore the store, and buy some goodies. Then we will go to lunch together. I have tried to have a "Sister Day" 3-4 times a year. This will be one of them. We usually meet at my house and have lunch, look at old photos, or yearbooks, then take a nice walk. If you have family, I hope you can spend time with them this coming Thanksgiving. If they have flaws, look past them, because we all are flawed, and we only have so long in life.
Sycamores have big pretty leaves when they are green. The leaf of the sycamore just turns brown in fall. When more than four leaves fall off the tree, your yard will need raked :):) Just a few more to go here.
This is my daughter Liz. She has 20 more radiation treatments, then she will be on the road to recovery. She has always tried to keep a smile on her face. What a trooper she has been thru her fight with cancer. May God bless her.
We toured the main house, grounds and gardens, at Mount Vernon. When we were leaving, I saw a man painting the chain fence....so I asked if I could help. I just wanted my daughters to see I am always working :):) What fun. Now I can say I have worked at Mount Vernon.
Here is a picture of me at the White House. Never dreamed I'd be standing in front of it , not in my live time. I loved our trip to D.C. , plan to go again. You can not see enough in one visit. Things look and feel diffently in person. Some things were much bigger(Lincoln Memorial) and some seemed smaller (White House)
