To Decorate or not…

Look what I found on my front doorstep today…

I put the pretty flower pin on my handbag, fixed me a cup of hot chocolate and put the pretty fabrics on my sewing table.  I will have to make something pretty with it soon.    Where did this nice treasure come from?   It came from Jayme in Idaho.   Here is her blog, check it out…

I visited with my dad this afternoon.   He is on bed rest and will be talking to the doctors tomorrow.  I have a feeling they are going to go ahead and schedule surgery on his heart.  He was comfortable this afternoon and hopefully will be through the rest of the stuff he will be going through.
It rained all day, and got cooler as the day went.  It truly is starting to feel like winter here, as far as I’m concerned.  🙂
Later this evening I plan to put up more Christmas decorations.   There are a few more things I want to take to work, and dress my cubicle up with, too.   
Originally, I planned to put up the little tree only, here at home and thought that would be good enough.  It is good enough, according to my hubby and my two kids (15 and 20) but honestly, I miss the big tree.  So I have asked my hubby to go ahead and bring the big tree down from the attic and I’ll put it up tomorrow evening.
To decorate or not to decorate… that was the question.  I have decided to Decorate!   🙂
Have you seen snow yet, this year?
Well, that’s it for this evening.   I pray you have a wonderful week ahead.
God bless and keep you,
My answer to the last question:  I love the story of the birth of Jesus Christ.  This is a tradition that I do each year with my children, that has been passed on from my childhood.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.

    What loving fabrics & pin, it looks smashing on your purse.

    We had a major Nor'easter snow storm go thru MD. Halloween week. It was AWESOME! Flakes the size of silver dollars. It was about 3 months early here … enjoyed every single second of 12 hours watching those gorgeous white fluffy flakes falling.

    Have a beautiful week ~
