I recently met a new blog friend, Dawn. We have some things in common and she gives me a lot of insight on a situation I rarely talk about. She recently did a post about bloggers she has known that have decided to stop blogging. Some just fall off and never say goodbye. so this is a big thank you to all of my blog friends. Thank you for sharing a bit of yourself and your life, your loves and even your dislikes. No matter what your reason is for blogging....Thank you.
Our weather has been so great...almost balmy at temps in the 50s and no snow. Thank you Mother Nature for a break on our heating bill which was almost unaffordable LAST year.
Thank you Corey for decorating my front deck with Christmas lights. I can't tell you how much I like, no LOVE, Christmas lights.
Have you seen the advertisement on TV for the Star Shower Laser Light? It's a flood light kind of thing that shines little lights where ever you point it, usually on your house. I thought it was a cool idea when I saw the commercial, but determined I didn't think it was worth $40. Well, the neighbor across the street bit and it's out there shining on their house...I think. The lights are tiny and you can barely see them. I'm glad I didn't get one and Terry says if I had, I would have taken it back.
I've been going through closets, boxing things we don't need or clothes that don't fit. I also boxed a lot of clothes that I know I will never wear. Things I used to wear to work etc. My grandson was collecting them for the homeless and for a church rummage sale. It was amazing to see a large car trunk load of boxes move out the door. How the heck was all that stuff stored in closets that still look as full as they did before I took stuff out of them. So, thank you Carol, for finding another use for items we don't even miss that someone else can use.
I'm still stitching. My next post will be to show my finished Queen of Hears block.
