Life of Me

 

This was me last week, going here and
there and it seemed like I was going 
very  FAST! So much went on.

 
Last Tuesday these two celebrated
their 19th anniversary! We had a very
nice dinner at a new to us restaurant.

On Wednesday, Mr. Ken's Dad had heart
surgery. He is a new man now, came
through the surgery with flying colors. He
is home and doing great!
Surgery was the culmination of many weeks
of tests and Dr's visits. A stressful time for
the whole family.
The night of Dad's surgery, Mr. Ken got very
sick and I got sick Thursday. Stayed home
Friday too.
Mr. Ken's was food related  (we think) and
mine was exhaustion.
Saturday was the anniversary of my Mom's
passing. We have missed her for 11 years now.

 
On Sunday, I was feeling better and was
able to start and finish a couple of
Christmas projects.
The pic above is our Advent wreath from
when I was a little girl. I redid the whole
thing, I bought a silver tray for the base
glued the candle holders together for more
stability and changed the greenery a bit.
So very happy with how it turned out. A
bit behind with this but it can still be used.



I wanted a wreath for our door but  wanted
something that would be easy to store or
pack up with the Christmas stuff.
Bought a picture frame with the intention
of painting it red but decided to leave it
brown to match my floral picks, used sand
paper to stress the frame a tiny bit, painted
a wooden L and glued everything on. Pretty
simple but  I like it.

Hope all is well with everyone and I hope we
have a quieter week!

A New Month

 


Hello and happy December!

We have arrived at the last month
of a very fast year---where did it go?
November ended with a blizzard for
us and December began started off
wet and cool.
We have a very busy week ahead of
us. Sunday will be a catch up day,
Monday Ken has a work party, Tues-
day is our anniversary ( more on
Tuesday), Wednesday my father-in-
law will have heart surgery with the
end of the week revolving around
Dad. That's the way to begin a month!




Today we went to Lawrence, Kansas.
We went to the 32nd annual Festival
of Trees. There were approx. 50 trees
and 20 wreaths to look at. Each were
decorated by groups, individuals and
organizations.
The Children's Shelter was the bene-
factor of ticket sales and auction
donations.
Enjoy!

with different pictures.

Upcoming Days

 


Hello!
I hope everyone survived Thanksgiving.
Now we move on to the holidays. Today
was Black Friday of which I try to avoid.
Who was out early this morning?

Tomorrow is Shop small Saturday. If you
have more shopping to do consider shopping
locally. Find those shops that have those
unique gifts for your friends and family.


 

Of course we all know what is involved in
Cyber Monday. That is when people shop
for deals online. Shop smart and stay safe
while on line.



Giving Tuesday is the day that donations
are made. They can be clothing, shoes,
home goods to your favorite thrift store
or shelter. Donate books to your library,
a nearby school if they are needed or
a shelter. Monetary donations are
accepted also. Many charities benefit
from Giving Tuesday.


Enjoy your weekend!

BIG DAY!

 


Hello!

Popped in to wish EVERYONE
a day of fun with your family and friends.

Mr. Ken and I will hang at home this year,
enjoy our meal, watch football and then
head down to the Country Club Plaza
with a bazillion of out closest friends
to watch the Christmas lights come on.
I guess my friends it will be officially
the Christmas/holiday season.

Friday we are going to an early morning
movie (read inexpensive time) and
avoid all the Black Friday shenanigans.

Saturday evening one of our favorite
friends is coming to dinner! It promises
to be a fun evening.

Sunday will bring some R & R.


Have a great holiday, safe travels and
I will be back next week!
