No excuses other than busy doing nothing again!! It has been so flippin' cold that sitting in one spot I have to worry about freezing there!! I know I complain about bees and wasps and wood ticky ticks that come in the spring and summer but.......this year I Promise....NO COMPLAINING!!!!!!!
This photo is Sam the Man. I took the picture Christmas morning over at his house when we went there for breakfast. Boy I look at this and it is amazing how much he is growing up! He is still my Sam the Man...but a bigger version!
Okay off to get more coffee...then make supper and relax on the couch for a bit...yes covered with an Afghan!!
As always dear friends..."Fill it to the Brim" Make every drop count...even the frozen ones !!!
Hugs to you all...Always

Bonnie, Patti, me (hiding behind my Mom), Susi and my brother David. I am not sure of the year. I know my brother was still in high school (the permed hair gave that away LOL) It had to be the 80's. Gosh we still have those same Christmas stockings!!
Brings back memories...makes me smile....makes me cry a bit too. We lost Patti to a very courageous battle with cancer. I can still hear her voice when she walked in on Christmas Eve " Merry Christmas everyone, sorry we're late" (She was never on time) Memories...kind of a love/hate sort of thing. Glad we have them, but wish they ...oh I don't know...hard to explain.
Okay enough, back to work for me. Have cleaning and laundry to do...and figure out how to stay warm, wind chill is minus 38 here this morning...BRRRR!!!
Have a great one !!

I have had an interesting time... had a lot of time spent with grandkids...which I loved and also had emergency surgery(that I did not love) It ended up being my gallbladder but because I have never had your typical symptoms, I was not aware there was a problem. The doctor was concerned because levels in my liver were basically off the chart. I guess when they call the surgeon in at 4 in the morning it is a bit of an emergency LOL But all better now!! Looking forward to Christmas!!! Have been working on cards and qp. they will be on my other home. We have our family Christmas early this year, the weekend of the 14th. Family will start arriving on the 12th and stay till the 15th. Hectic and fun and I love it!!! The qp up there is from a kit called "Coziness" by Manu. There is a qp page on my other home and a link to her site.
Okay off to take the pups outside for a break and then curling up with a new Debbie Macomber book.
Hugs to you all....
And as always "Fill it to the Brim" and ENJOY!!!!!

Been a bit since I have been in here.... sorry bout that. It has been hot, muggy and yucky so have not really felt like doing to much even in here. I have been working on blog backgrounds for ya all so will try and get those finished and up. The grandkids have been over quite a bit. Zack mostly, he has been helping cut and stack wood for winter (we keep our fireplace going most of the time to save on heating costs) Miss KBB and Sam the Man spent a weekend also.... oh they are a trip separately but together.... OMG!!!!!!!! I built them a tent over the clothesline and they thought I was the most talented person ever LOL.... (I am I am LOL)
Had a bad storm go thru last night, even tornado sightings, we just had lots of lighting, wind and thunder. All is well this morning, some tree damage, but not close to here. I am so ready for Fall, even Winter...NO STORMS...and that's a good thing. I will take 12 inches of snow any day compared to a strong wind storm (we live surrounded by trees .. BIG trees)
The page up there is Sam the Man and a "Friend" originally he was sitting on my back porch LOL The kit is a new one from RDH called "To be happy"
Well, my coffee cup is cold, so need a warm refill and have to get in the shower so I can get ready to face the day....Have a great ones my friends... filled with memories .. and as always "Fill it to the Brim"
Love and hugs .... Always

Oh do I sound like a happy camper??!! Oh yes!!! This old body does not do high dew points and humidity any more (never really did) Have been waking to the air conditioner running for so long and this morning... a beautiful quiet !!!! I will try and send this awesome weather to all of you.
The picture is of course Sam the Man, he is one who plays till he drops. His Dad was the same way when he was little.
Yesterday was Miss KBB's birthday and today we will have a small party at her house, and yes I got the beach towel, hope it's the right flowers!! This morning she is at a bridal shop with Mommy and Aunt Kari. They are looking at miniature bride dresses. Keira will be in her Aunts wedding next April.
Talk about excited!!!!
Well the pups are wanting to go out and my coffee cup is empty so I best get going. Going to try and make some memories later.
As always dear friends " Fill it to the Brim" every drop is special, every drop is a moment added to your heart!!
Love you all....always

Miss KBB will be 7 on Friday...where the time went I have no idea!! She called me last night to ask if I had thought about what I was getting her for her Birthday.
KBB--- " Hi Grandma, have you thought about my Birthday present yet?"
Me--- " well no not yet"
KBB--- " I think when you do think, you should think about a Beach towel, one with flowers on it"
Me--- "so that's what you want ?"
KBB--- " I'm just saying you should think about it, but anything is okay. But ya know I like flowers"
Thinking she wants a flowered beach towel huh??
She is our KBB, she is something else!!
