Asking For Trouble

I guess we decided to end the year with a BANG.....We lost all our resistance and after having only one dog for the last ten years we have added to our home a new little one.  She is a tiny Chihuahua and will only weigh five pounds when grown..She is a little pistol. Our other little dog is ten years old now and needless to say her nose is extremely out of joint.  It was fun to have her over the weekend so we could give her lots of attention.  Now we get to see how she does at work.  Our older dog is settled into the routine so I guess you might say we are headed to alot of work and training...Oh...We named her Roxy.  She is smaller than a Beanie Baby.  Needless to say we have to watch where we walk (in more ways than one).

Have a JOYFUL DAY...........................DIANE

Five Days till Christmas

Just wanted to share a little bit of Heaven.....My two grandson's...This is the cutest picture, and the best looking Santa I have seen. My two boys are the greatest, sweetest, funnest little guys.  We don't get to see them very often but I love them dearly. I wish they didn't live so far away and I wish we weren't so tied down with work, so we could see them a little more often..
I want to wish you all a fun filled Christmas surrounded by FAMILY, FOOD AND FUN.  And the greatest of the gifts is LOVE......................................DIANE

P.S.  I had a book made of my first month of blogging with pictures and as soon as I see it in person I will let you know how it turned out.  It was $30.00 with a hardbound cover and color pictures..I can't wait to get it. I will keep you posted.   MERRY CHRISTMAS

Light up the Night

Lighting up the night at Christmas time is something that we do to give back to our little community. Every year my Husband goes to this extreme project to thrill the town and the children of the town. He starts putting up the lights way before Thanksgiving so that Thanksgiving night we can turn them on and start the Christmas Merriment.  Most of the old lights have been traded for the new LED lights which save a lot of energy and money.  We went to the annual Christmas dinner with the Rotary International.  Every year we get invited by our friend to be their guest. The food is so fabulous, the Turkey moist and the stuffing fluffy. Yams and mashed potatoes, pie and wine. yummmm

After we stopped at one of the churches and viewed their Live Nativity.  It was wonderful they all wore beautiful costumes and the animals were all live, moo and bah and goose and duck. Songs of Christmas being sung. Truly a blessing.  I hope they do it again next year.  They went to a lot of work for this two day event.

My prayer is for an end to Cancer. My blessings go out to all those suffering with Cancer that they might have a new year Cancer free.............I believe in the power of prayer.            Hugs and well wishes...Diane Glass

Sit and Sip, Slow Down

Now is the time to slow down some and enjoy the Holiday unfolding. Yes there are still many things to do, but if you don't stop for a few minutes and regroup you will miss some of the Joy.  I have chosen to slow down today and say Hi to all my fellow bloggers.  Take a few extra minutes to smell the coffee. Think about my many blessings and give thanks.  Time for me is at warp speed. I always remember hearing how fast time flies when I was in my youth.  I guess we never slowed down to think about it much.  Now I can see.  Time Flies. 

My Santa present came early this year.  I got a new sewing machine. So needless to say I had to re-boot my studio AGAIN.....I made two pillowcases, and a curtain. My machine is a Janome 2010.  So far I love it.  It has 50 stitches and threads the needle. I have a quilt in mind that I want to make so I will keep you posted.  Enjoy the moment,REMEMBER Martha Stewart has a staff.......................Blessing and Joy.               DIANE
