"Christmas Eve" by Blackmore's Night

Say goodbye to Novemeber. She must be on her way. The cold winds of December feel like there here to stay...................

Tuesday, November 23, 2010



The year has turned its circle,
The seasons come and go.
The harvest all is gathered in
And chilly north winds blow.
Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain,
So open wide the doorway~
Thanksgiving comes again!

So Sweet

I've been working with a customer at my work trying to organize the purchase of one of our hand tricycles for a little boy in need. The lady I've been talking with is so sweet and mannerly.

She sent this to me today:

A strong person knows how to keep their life in order.
With tears in their eyes they still manage to say "I'm ok."

Send this to a strong person, I just did.

God is good. Change is coming. God saw your sadness and said
hard times are over. If you believe in Him, send this to ten
people including me. Watch what happens in 30 minutes.

A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.

Let nothing disturb you

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things pass away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things.
He who has God
Finds he lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.
— St. Teresa of Avila

Remebering a favorite actress

Elizabeth Montgomery

April 15, 1933 to May 18, 1995

I loved her as Samantha on Bewitched. I almost named my oldest daughter Samantha but went with Sara from A Little Princess the 1904 children's novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Didn't you wish you could twitch you nose like Samantha?

My Favorite Photo

I've been tagged by my hubby, The Camera Totin Idiot, to pick my favorite photo for a new meme! Fun Fun

But how do you pick a favorite photo when you take hundreds of photos a month? Should you pick a favorite picture of the cutest grandchild, or a picture of your adorable children when they were little? No, I decided I show those pictures all the time and thought I would go with a picture I took a few years ago on a windy day in Garrett County, MD.

Here's my pick:

These horses were in out in the field along the country road we were driving along. We stopped and they were interested in us and moved over to the fence. This is a favorite picture because the scene only took place for a few seconds before the horses moved away from each other and went back up the hill away from the fence. It was a lucky shot and one of my favorites. It's also a favorite cause the Camera Totin Idiot was standing next to me and didn't get the picture! It's a friendly competition but nevertheless a competition!

Here I am!

I haven't gone off the deep end or disappeared. Just been enjoying my family and be MaMa to grandson Jackson!

Here are a few pics to catch up on on everything:

Jackson loves to ride the on the Kermit ride at the mall!

Went to the pumpkin patch

and enjoyed a hay ride.

Christmas was lots of fun!

Got a record player for my gift from the hubby!

Between Christmas and New Year's we went to Gettysburg!

Had lots of fun but it sure was cold.

Then we saw in 2010 at the our ball drop down on our mall
