I hope everyone is doing well! We are in the middle of a cold spell.
Last night it was 13 degrees and today with the wind chill it feels like
1 degree! This is supposed to last for a few more days. then we are
supposed to get more snow. I have been staying in... too cold for me
to be taking Marlie outside. My son should be getting back in town
tonight..he has been working in Georgia for a little over a week...it
will be a big change in temperature for him!! I need to keep moving..
be back soon..Hugs to all!
Hello everyone..I hope you are doing well! Sorry the graphic
is a little blurry but for some reason I can't open any of the
pictures in my Care2 album so I have to copy the little preview
and try to resize it. This week has been a busy one..haircut
yesterday, took a friend to a doctor's appointment today and
running my son's house every day to check his mail..he is out
of town on a construction job and is expecting some important
things in the mail. I really like my hair cut..I got really brave and
had 5-6 inches cut..I haven't had my hair this short in a long
time!! I will post a picture soon...better keep moving..hugs to all!
Hello Everyone!! I hope your week is off to a good start!
It was a somewhat peaceful day today..no appointments
or errands to run. Tomorrow I am going to break down and
get my hair cut..it is getting raggedy looking! My niece is a
stylist and she cut it once before and did a good job so I am
going back to her..I am paranoid when it comes to getting
my hair cut!! Marlie is doing well..into everything as always!
I will try to get back tomorrow! Hugs to all!
How is everyone? I tried to get in earlier but I kept getting
the "running script error". Hope I have better luck thie time!
Today the temperature has warmed up and the snow and
ice is melting off the roof! Dinner is almost ready so I better
keep moving! Hugs to all!
Hey everybody. It's raining it's butt off here. I'm beginning to grow webbed feet. LOL!!! Well, I'm off today. So, I have lots of graphix to sort out and hopefully I can get some downloaded here. Well, I'm outta here for now. Have a dry & warm day.
Other good news is that my youngest daughter just became registered at our local community college yesterday. She's registered in the culinary arts classes. And on top of that, she just found a job working directly across the street from where I work at a new Fuddrucker's that is opening Jan. 21st. So, we are growing and we are giving the glory to God. We did the footwork and left the results to him.
Well, I do want to get to my other groups. I want to thank each of you for the loving support & prayers that ya'll have said for me & my family. I am truly a blessed woman to have such awesome friends and we serve an awesome God. Have a truly wonderful Tuesday everyone. Love ya'll lots!!!
Hello everyone! I hope your week is off to a good start!
Today we ran to the store then I made a big pot of chili.
Since it is my best friend's birthday I made cupcakes..
some for him and some for me! Marlie napping so I
am trying to get to as many groups as possible! Hugs!
I hope everyone is doing well! Marlie spent the
night with Rachel last night so today I am running
errands. It is very cold and windy today. I have
bills to pay and groceries to buy so I am off
and running! Have a great weekend!!
I hope everyone has been enjoying the weekend. We had
another snow storm yesterday..I ache all over from shovelling
snow! Yesterday I took the Christmas decorations down and
I am still trying to organize all of Marlie's new clothes! This is
going to be a busy week..2 doctor's appointments and grocery shopping. I hope the snow slacks off! Hugs to all!
I hope everyone had a great holiday! I am still sorting through all the packages that were dropped off here! Lots of clothes for Marlie..dresses, pants, shirts, hoodies, pajamas, jackets etc..some great educational toys and some stuffed animals etc.
I am definitely going to have to clean out the dresser to make room for the new items! We spent Christmas at my son's house..a nice relaxing time. Marlie was busy tearing up paper and trying to climb up the steps. My son got me 2 tickets to
the movie Les Miserables! It is one of my favorite plays and I am anxious to see the movie. Better get back to doing laundry! Hugs to all!
Hello to all! This has been a very busy week! The
time is flying by way too fast! Earlier tonight someone kocked on my door and there was a young woman who asked if I was Conni..I said "yes" and she said "I know you don't know me but some friends wanted me
to drop off a few things for you and Marlie for Christmas..is that okay?" She had a gift bag in her hand and I said "yes", thinking that is all she brought. A young man got out of the car and they proceeded
to carry in bag after bag and box after box!! There
was also a car seat, a booster seat, a walker and a gigantic bag of groceries!! They wouldn't tell me where the gifts came from..they just wished us a Merry Christmas! I was so overwhelmed..I was crying and smiling at the same time! Tonight I am sleeping on the couch because my entire bed is covered with presents! Some Angels were definitely busy tonight!
I am still in shock!
Good to see everyone..hope you are doing well!
Hello dear friends. Today has been such a blessing. Got up at 5:30 this morning to take a friend of mine to work. It's been really cold here on the island these past 2 mornings and we offered to take her to work. Well, after dropping her off, hubby & I decided to go out on a jetty that goes into the ocean and we watched the sun rise. It was beautiful. It was cold but fun at the same time. We then came home, I made french toast and coffee. So this morning has been fantastic. I just wanted to stop by and share my day with you. Oh, I also want to tell ya'll what God has done for my family. We are going to get rent assistance from the Salvation Army. They have a special fund now for Veterans and they will pay for our rent until my husband's allotted amount runs out. We just found this out yesterday. I also went to a job interview on Wednesday. And my daughter has a job interview next week. So, all of y'alls prayers are being answered. I can not thank ya'll enough for the love, support & kindness that ya'll have shared with me. Ya'll are the greatest!!!! Have a terrific Friday everybody. Love ya'll dearly.
Hello Everyone..I hope you are doing well. It has been a
long day and I am worn out ..physically & emotionally. I
am relaxing with a cup of coffee and a couple brownies!
A little while ago we had a thunderstorm with lots of rain.
.not the usual weather for the middle of December! In the
morning my grand daughter, Cassie, has a 2 hour delay for
school so she is going to come over and hang out with us
until I take her to school. It should be a good time...
Cassie is crazy about Marlie and doesn't see her as often as
she would like. Wishing you all sweet dreams!
Stopping in to say Good Night. I hope you had a great
weekend! Tomorrow I go to the doctor then take Marlie
to Rachel's house, then meet my son to go to the funeral
home...going to be a busy day. Wishing you a good week!
Hey there Conni. That is so awesome that Marlie has been blessed by receiving the gifts that these young guys bought for her. I think that is awesome that her name was entered to receive Christmas gifts this year. And to go shopping for Cassie. You have your hands full. I'm glad to hear your brother is finally able to move into his house. It's been a long time coming for both him & his wife. Now what are you going to be doing? Hehe!!! Is he moving closer to you now or is it further away?
Marlie sounds like she is growing by the minute. How many teeth does she have now?
Well, as you can see, I have added more Christmas tags & sets. As I get them, I try to get them posted here so we can use them. I haven't come across any New Year's tags just yet. And BTW Conni, I'm glad to hear that your computer is back up & running. I know all too well about not having a computer for any length of time. LOL!!! Well, I'm outta here for now. I'll be adding more tags as I get them. Have a wonderful day everyone.
My computer is now fixed..Yea!! They did a back up of the good stuff and erased bad stuff then updated everything. Now
I am going through and chnging fonts, sizes etc. Hopefully I will
now be able to visit groups, post graphics etc with less
problems. Yesterday I managed to do a little Christmas
shopping for my grandaughter, Cassie. Time is running out and
so is my money! My former father in law passed away
yesterday so that is very sad for all of us. This will be the first
time in 40 years that he won't be Santa Claus at Christmas
parties, the theatre and at neighbor's homes. He will be
missed by many people. Marlie is a little fussy today..she got
her shots last week for measles etc and has another tooth
coming in. Sometime next week I will be going to my son's
apartment to wash walls, clean the oven etc so his landlord
can do insepction. He will be moved into his house hopefully
by Monday..The difference in what it now lloks like and what it
was like is amazing! He has worked many long hours
remodeling it. Hope you are all doing well..Hugs!
Stopping by to say HI! My computer is in the shop..Yippie!
I am using an old one I had in the basement and I am limited
with what I can do. My computer should be ready tomorrow
so hopefully I can get back to groups on a regular basis. I
hope you are all doing well..Hugs to all!
It is good to see all of you! Marlie is doing well..she is starting
to stand on her own and trying to climb up on everything! Today
we went to a Christmas party..students from the Vocational
School sponsered children and 2 guys did the shopping for her.
They got her 3 great toys, a beautiful winter coat and an amazing
selection of clothes! I was blown away and cried all the way home!
I never imagined that she would get so many things. It proved the
real meaning of Christmas still exists!
Hello sweet ladies. It's so good to see everyone. I must apologize again for my absence. I have been a busy beaver here lately. Yesterday we went to a friend's house to put up Christmas lights for them. We had a lot of fun. The weather was chilly for us and so we had rounds of coffee & laughter with the Christmas lights being hung. Then we had the task of grocery shopping. Oh that was truly a hard task to do. We drove 25 miles away to a store that has better meats than the local Walmart. It's well worth the drive. We got home, unloaded those groceries, only for my hubby to tell us that we were going to Walmart next to get all of our dry goods. Well, we finally got home around 8:30. We were so tuckered out. It didn't take any of us long to fall asleep. So, today, we're taking it pretty easy.
I am still looking for work and I know that God has a job waiting for me or preparing one for me. I just keep doing the footwork and leaving the rest up to God.
I pray for financial help dear friends. We received some pretty bad news last week and it's really weighing heavy on us. We are behind on our rent right now and 2 other bills. Our landlord is being extremely thoughtful and allowing us some leeway.
Well, I'm going to scoot out of here. Know that I love each of you and always am praying for you also. Have a blessed Wednesday everyone.
Hello dear friends. I have been away for quite a few weeks now. I have been so busy and just haven't found time to stop by. It's even 10:30 at night now and I decided I better stop by and let folks know I'm still alive & kicking. I have more graphics to post. I will take the time tomorrow to post them. I hope ya'll enjoy them. Anyway... I want to get into a couple more groups tonight. Have a blessed evening dear friends.
Hello to everyone! I hope you are all doing well. The weather
here has been warm but rainy the last few days. Today I put
up a few decorations but I have to be careful where I put things
since Marlie is getting into everything! She is starting to stand
without support and trying to climb on everything! Next week we
are going to a Christmas party. An agency here in town has a
party every year for children who have special needs or medical
problems and someone entered Marlie's name. I'm sure she will
enjoy being with the other kids. It is getting late and I am tired
so off to bed I go! Hugs to all!
