~ Just a few things... ~
This gorgeous Santa wreath is the extent of my Christmas decor at the moment! The girl that cuts my hair, and my daughter's, made this for me 3 years ago as a birthday gift. I couldn't love it more!! I just love Santas and Santa faces.
I'm sure you are tired of hearing about my feeling depressed due to the holidays as well as my back. I had an MRI last week and I see the surgeon tomorrow for the results and hopefully, a resolution. I met a dear friend for lunch yesterday and then decided to take care of a few errands while I was out. By the time I got home, I could barely make it up the stairs. I fed Forrester, took care of a few things and then crawled into bed, almost in tears. No one told me that getting older was going to be like this! :)
My birthday was the 1st and my mother's was the 3rd. Even though she's been gone since 2003, it still bothers me. We didn't have the best relationship but she loved celebrating birthdays and always made an Italian Cream Cake for me ~ my favorite! My lack of interest in Christmas has been due to the loss of her as well as Abby. I can't think of anyone that loved Christmas more than those two and my daughter! I'm trying to get it together for them!
I'd like for you to take a look at an incredibly creative Christmas tree, gift wraps and more over at Rachel's blog ~ Trailer Trash Treasure Trove. She is extremely creative and talented! While you're there, check out her Christmas decor and wrapping from last year!
I am so, so excited and immensely blessed as I won a beautiful Christmas apron over at my friend, Tina's ~ What We Keep. She's another that has amazing sewing skills! Please hop on over and check out her blog! Now, I must make Christmas cookies with my apron on! :)
We're supposed to have true winter temps tomorrow and Friday, like down to the 20's! I don't think there's any precip indicated, at least I hope not. I have things to do both days and I just don't drive in icy weather.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I always appreciate it and will be visiting you soon!
