Lots of dark hair...can't wait to comb it. I am just busting to hold her and kiss her. As soon as I can get some photos, I will post them.
In the agony of what my family is facing with my brother Mark...I feel God sent me this baby to love. Brock's been working and saving...good thing . His fiancé is Emily. Which Brock's sister Emma just loves. :) So we have all cried tears of sadness and tears of joy.
I am sending thanks to all of you. Your kind words and prayers have helped me. To know that people can care for others, can send hugs and prayers when they are needed, means so very much to me. Bless you. XO

28 more days till spring. That's just for hope. It's been bitter cold as all of you know. More in the forecast for next week. It surely can't last much longer.
Once again I want to thank everyone for the prayers and well wishes for my brother Mark. I appreciate all of you so much. Please stay warm and safe. XO

I felt a bit lost yesterday. Waiting is hard on people. I prayed a lot and praying still. Even when it doesn't sound like much hope. I can never give up hope. I just pray more. :)
I can tell you a little about my brother. He was what was called a "player". Loved the women but could never really commit to them... He married a younger woman and had 2 sons... Then it was a repete of our own childhood. Drinking, fighting, screaming. There were times it looked like things might work out, but they never really did.
When Mommy was alive she would almost hand lead them into better ways. But she babied Mark a bit too much. She loved us and didn't know how to say no to some. If you are parents you know some times "No" is the best thing you can say to your child.
Then Mark divorced and things got ugly...you know, Dr. Phil show ugly... Myself, I stay away from all that drama...it makes my tummy hurt. LOL. I think everyone in my family has had their days of woe. You just have to grow from that. But Mark's life style was more bars again, so his health has truly suffered. I didn't like his ways, but I love him, he's my brother.
Sorry, I think I am nervous and just prattling. Bless all of you. Bless all of us. XO

Today is cold and some what windy here. I used to work with a fellow who would call this weather balmy. I told him he had balmy confused with blustery. :):) Let's enjoy this day , whether balmy or blustery. XO

This will be a nice day. Half of February is over. Just getting closer to spring.:):) If the wind lets up later this week, I am going to be cutting down all the mums from last year. Clearing out the flowerbeds if I can. Try to get a head start on gardening .
Today, I have to fill the bird feeders and put out some suet cakes ....my birds probably think I have put them on a diet. I will dice some apples and oranges for them also.
Enjoy this day and be safe. XO

I have many more photos, I'll show them thru next week. I will show you the gift from my Teddy tomorrow.:):)
Please pray for all the people in need today. We need to think of those on the east coast getting another snow storm, blizzard conditions. I feel so blessed , our winter so far has not been a snowy one, just cold. Happy Valentine's Day to all of you. XO

Today Ted and I are planning a nice lunch out. This will be our valentine's celebration. We will also do a bit of shopping. You know how you try to squeeze in everything you can while you are out. Make the trip to town count.
I am ready for some rest and relaxation. I am a bit tired of cleaning out the fireplace and dusting so much from burning wood. I think my arms are a bit longer from carrying in wood. Our heat bills are very low, because we do burn wood. That is a plus. Today as I went out for the paper, it is cold out and I had to sweep snow off the steps and walk. But upon coming back into the house, it was toasty warm inside , from the fireplace heat and the smell of coffee and the house was quiet.....just wonderful.
Hope you are enjoying your day. That you can have a nice cappucine this afternoon for your break. Stay warm. XO

Where is everyone hiding these days? Seems there is less activity in blogland. I miss seeing everyone's decorating, cooking , or just their everyday family life. Hope all of you are well. Take time to play today. XO
