Another December Post!!!!!! :D

Hello one + all!!!!

Hope you all are enjoying the seasonal festivities. (that sounds fancy!!! LOL!!!) Anyway things have slowed down for me the past couple of days...I'm down with a cold. AUGH!!!!! I pretty much stayed on the couch all day today. I was still able to get some things done so that was good. No cranberry bread got made...but I made a few more ornaments, knitted on the scarf I've been working on, sneezed, blew my nose (alot!!) + washed my hands (alot!!) So things are still getting done...just a bit slower.

Hannah did some running around for me today. :) That was wonderful!! I love that I can depend on her to do things like that for me. She's a great helper!!

I figured I'd have more to say but I guess not!! (LOL!!!)

Have a great rest of the week!
Only a week till Christmas Eve!! (just thought I'd remind you!!)

Love y'all!!!!
Hugs, Nanette :)

Can you believe it?!?!??!

Two posts in the month of December!!!! Do miracles never cease!! LOL!!!

Hope you all are doing well. Are things crazy at your house? Hard to believe but I am FINALLY making my Christmas cards!! Kevin actually said that it was 'too late' to start them and I should send store-bought!! Well, that is not going to happen!! So they are underway. ;)

We had some power line 'misshaps' a couple of times in a week. Last Thursday night the power line that went from the pole to our house catch on fire and spark. Of course it made our electricity go out. It was raining and we thought it was due to the apple tree branches that the line was running through caused a puncture in the line. Well, no, it ended up being a squirrel chewing on it!! Amazing!! That got fixed and we thought we were done with anymore problems. We ended up losing our microwave and Hannah's ceiling fan. (not sure why the fan?) Then yesterday morning shortly after 9:00 our electricity started flickering and power surging. What the?? Come to find out a dying black pine tree had uprooted and fell on the SAME power line!!!! In all the 23 years we've lived in this house we've never had this much problem with the electricity. It had been raining so much overnight that the ground was saturated and the tree came down. I had to go to work so Kevin ended up staying home waiting for the power co. guy. It ended up being the same one that was here last week! LOL!! Crazy!! It took him a few hours to finally get here. Come to find out a lot of trees had gone down all over the county due to the wet ground. Thankfully everything's fixed. We did lose our ceiling fan and a space heater with this go 'round. I had been 'hoping' I'd lose the fridge...but NO!!! Twice I had the chance and twice it's still running fine. (did I say how much I HATE that fridge?!?!) Oh well!!

Enough of that!!
Hope you all have a terrific Christmas if I don't 'see' you again before then!
Hugs + much love!!

It's Christmas time!! YAY!!!!

Hello All!!!

I can't believe that it's been so long since I last posted. But I guess I say that everytime...don't I?

So is everyone ready for Christmas? I am certainly NOT!!!! I can't get over how the time's just flying by!! I still have so much to do!! We do have our tree up and a lot of our decorating done. So that's good. We had a funny thing happen Sunday evening after our fully decorated tree had been standing for about 3 hours...It fell down!!! It was amazing!! We only lost 3 ornaments so that was good. And it took Kevin another couple hours to put it back up and fix the light, ornaments + strings of beads. I felt so bad for him...he felt horrible about it. If it didn't seem so tragic it would have been hillarious! You see this stuff happen in movies...but not to 'real' people!!

We woke up to snow yesterday morning. It was really pretty watching it come down. It's pretty much gone now but I loved to watch it fly.

Sorry this is so short...but with so much left to do...I've not got as much time to blog!!
Have a wonderful Christmas if I don't get back here before then! (that wouldn't be too unusual!!)

Love you all!!
Hugs, Nanette :)
