White Christmas?

It sure does not look like a couple of days before Chrismas. Now I know what people in warmer climates see for Christmas, it has been raining and foggy for over a week off and on, and there has been no sun.. the forcast for Christmas, is probably no rain, but no white Christmas either.
Great for people who are traveling, but not for a white Christmas...
My snowmen on the fence look lonly, usually I am brushing snow off of them so they show up.
There are still people walking around in shorts.....
Oh well, the snow will be here soon enough, so I will just turn on my Christmas lights and enjoy them.

First Time in Years this has Happened

Ok, everyone who is still running in circles trying to get stuff done, now is the time to delete this..................

I am BORED....I am done BUT, I am a person who is used to running in circles to get stuff done, and the only thing on my list today is put the stamps on the Christmas cards and run them to the post office...

I still have to clean, but we all know that is best done the day before company comes, cause you will just have to do it again later anyway, so why waste the energy doing it twice.

I could find my Christmas Video's and DVD's but I do not feel like sitting in front of the TV all day...

By the way it is foggy and raining out...so much for a white Christmas....

Fall Already................................

It has really been a long time since I have posted on this blog...It was warm then...now we are slipping into the chilly weather...I would rather be shipping into more warm weather. I really hate the cold.
I love the fall colors, but hate the cool weather. Why can't we have warm, will cool is ok, but cold is out! I love to look at snow, but not 3 feet of it at one time...And I really hate driving on ice.... Maybe there is still hope for a bit more warm weather...I sure hope so....

Zipper Pins

A friend suggested that we do a class together, we have not done one is what seems like ages. So we decided this would be a fun one, and it was. We used metal zippers that we cut up in different lengths and either sewed or glued back together, and then added a cute center. They are supposed to be pins, but I am thinking of adding a hair clip to them. That way I think I can just clip them to other things, like the front of a purse, my hat,a wallhanging, or just use them to decorate other areas.
The class lasted about 2 hours, lots of fun!

The right size.....................

Gone are the days of just grabbing something off the shelf in your size and leaving the store. Now each item has to be tried on.
I took 3 pairs of jeans in the fitting room, all the same size, made by the same company, but different colors. 1 out of the 3 fit me. One was so big I could have invited a friend in and the other I could not even get zipped.
What happened to consistancy?
For that matter what happened to sizing?  Now it is not a matter of, oh that is my size and I like the color, I will just grab it while  I am shopping and add it to my wardrobe.
Today I found the perfect top to wear with a pair of my jeans to a party...Well maybe perfect is  not the right word... I am not really sure what the right word is...
The good points are: I like the color, it is just what I was looking for, and it is the right length that I like. But that is where it ends...
Now you may ask what is wrong with it that sound like it is nice.
Well it would be if I did not have to take in the shoulder seams because the neckline is huge! and it has a bit of a funny shape.. it fits fine under the arms, but from there it sort of widens out like a tent...so I have to sew in the sides. And when I got it home and layed it flat, one side is wider than the other. Apparently whomever cut it out had a problem centering it, or it slipped while it was being cut.
Now I usually buy a size or 2 bigger than I need, because I have learned that the first time it is washed it will be at least one size smaller.
 Some shirts continue to shrink each time you wash them..
I also noticed when I got it home and took a good look at the hem that whom ever did the sewing could not stitch a straight line...
I really must make time to make my own clothes again...At least that way they will fit me.

Rain, Rain, Go Away, Don't Come Back For Many A Day

Well winter finally ended, gone is the snow and ice, and cold...BUT, in it's place we now have the rain, rain, rain, cold fronts, and wind and storms...
What happened to those nice spring days, when I could work in the garden, and not have it all drowned. Or just see the sun for several days in a row, No storms, no wind, no chilly weather...nice spring days to enjoy the out of doors after the long winter...
I would like to plant a garden, but first have to get the mud dried out. It seems every weekend when I could be doing something fun outside it rains and I am inside.

One of m favorite Easter songs.

In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev'ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow'r of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand.

Sill here, still cold

Well Christmas has come and gone, the snow is still here as is the cold. I am so tired of the cold, and the snow and ice for that matter. Though I have gotten a lot done since December, got all the Christmas decoration down. Well still have the cards I recieved up. Some of them have letters in that I want to answer yet, so left them up to remind me. Put everything else away. Got out the snowmen and they are sitting around the house. They will be up till probably the first day of spring. Unless it get nice before then...
I have managed to get a lot of cleaning done, I am warmer if I just keep moving. Have a few more rooms to finish. Have gotten craft/sewing stuff done. Am working on projects that have been on my mind to do for a long time but I just never seem to get to.
This is going to be the year to get most of them done, or just forget about them altogether. One or the other.
