Finally ...I'm Back (sort of)...

...and I'm so glad to be "back"!  I've missed you all.... I could not find my computer for months.  One of my helpers packed it by mistake! 

So much has happened in the past 5+ months. I'm exhausted.  I have moved to a much smaller house and believe me it was a major undertaking.  The only saving grace is that this house does have an unfinished basement.  All the over flow is down there and I am still in the process of going through it all and downsizing.  About every 2-3 weeks I have a charity pick up. 
I believe in the long run this move will be such a good thing for me.  When I closed my gift shop and cafe/tea room all the overflow got packed up and came to my home.  This move has forced me to deal with it.

Some Larkspur Lane Christmas Ornaments I have collectected

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Holiday.  Mine was quiet and subdued.... in the past I have always gone nuts decorating... my friends would say they expected  to see sugar plum fairies come out dancing (LOL)! This year due to my health and state of my home I didn't even decorate..... I did bake though!  I found some wonderful recipes online in addition to my old standby's.

May Gods' goodness bless you all ...

A thought for 2012 ...

Hug O' War

I will not play at tug o' war
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

Blessings, L

  5. Hi Linda! Thanks so much for joining my blog! I see you haven't posted for a few months, and hope you are doing well. Sounds like you've had some unpacking and organizing after a big move! We moved and downsized 3 years ago, so I know what a huge thing that is! I also see you Love our LORD and that makes my heart rejoice! So good to meet another Sister in Christ! Please keep in touch! ♥♥♥
