We'll this is our second of the year, this led to 21" of snow and 5' snow drifts.  Parts of my yard are bare and others have snow over the fence.  weird!  This snow is light and fluffy, compared to the last storm this one was much better.  We did not loose power.  THank you GOD!  I am back to work tomorrow boo hoo!

HOpe to have a new pc in a few weeks, started doing a little search today to see what I want.  any suggestions???

Merry Christmas!

                                                                          Picture source

I have a love for books.  When I was younger I never read anything at all.  Thought books were for smart people.   We'll a few years ago good housekeeping or one of those books had a clip of a new book in it called.  "the life and death of charlie St. Cloud"  I was at work at lunch and bored so I read the clip.  I was so hooked on it that I was late from lunch.  A few months later I saw the book bought it and read it within a few days.  That was the beginning of my love of reading.  Below you can see some of the books I have read.

This year I asked my husband to get me a kindle.  Knowing money was tight I figured it was a long shot.

we'll Iz got me a a Kindle.  Thank  you husband.  I love you!

Owl always love Christmas!


I really love Christmas, I don't like the stress leading up to it (who does) but, I love how people sometimes are nicer in the stores, how people have wonder in their eyes and that feel good ho ho ho kinda thing going.  Is it the shopping, the upcoming gifts they know they will get or is it that Jesus, has a little bit of His spirit floating around and it grasps people and gives them that glint of what it's really all about?

I hope for the latter!

I'm dreaming of a white....

                                                                Another weheartit pic.  Sorry not sure of source for this one =(

I would love to come home to this place every day, that is some home.

So, we have a 50% chance of snow for Christmas.  I'm praying for a white Christmas.  I just love snow and think it would make the day just wonderful!

Happy shopping, I'll be heading to the mall for shopping tonight.  I know way to push the shopping envelope, but things just did not fall the way I wanted this year.  I've been really stressed and hope I find those special gifts on the boys list.

Hope your done and wrapping!

Cookies anyone?


  We'll I must say the person who took this picture has me wanting not only to get out my camera but to so eat some cookies.

  I thought I'd share a yummy little cookie makin' thing with ya'll...Eat up.

  Werthers cookies!

1.5 sticks a butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup confection sugar
1 egg
1 Tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 werthers candies smashed with a hammer (so fun)

mix the wet stuff together then add slowly the dry stuff.  Once all mixed add the werthers candies. 

bake at 375 for about 12-14 min, or until golden brown and melted and yummy!

(helpful hint, take the werthers hit twice with a hammer large chunks are perfect, do this while there in the wrapper so they don't fly and hit you in the face!)

The story of my sled!


We are supposed to get snow today!

I can't believe how fast Christmas is coming this year, it's rather annoying if you ask me.  Not Christmas but the fact that every time I blink it's like 3 days closer.

Today I was shopping for my mother at this fantastic store in Cape May.  It's vintage/homemade artsy fartsy and I just love it.  The one thing I saw for about 55-75 bucks is old vintage sleds.  Like the one above.

When I was 2 for Christmas I got one of these sleds minus the back seat, it was painted red and green with my name and the year on it.  It's lovely, and I have fond memories of this sled.  I love old vintage sleds, and can't Waite to go back after Christmas to see if they still have some (I just can't spend money on myself now)

So, enjoy sledding and snowball fights and all that stuff this Christmas, because in a blink of an eye it will be gone...poof

SU..color goodness!

I know I'm partial now that I sell SU products, but I will say even before I started I loved that the colors and papers all matched and I love the quality to the paper, it's to me the best on the market.  I've said that for years.  So, here is a little card with some color!

Enjoying your Christmas??  Me, I'm so stressed I can barely see straight, hope you all are bit more ahead than I.

Merry Christmas!

Thank you card!

This is a super quick and easy card today.  I love how The megaphone comes out of the paper.
