The Latest



It's Friday folks and I'm not sure where the week has gone, but it has sure flown by.  'Tis the season and the holiday buzz is in full swing.


About a week ago I decided to treat myself to a relaxing facial.  I had never had one and it was so enjoyable.  My nail gal (also my Vietnamese daughter) is now a distributor with NuSkin and she used all their products for my facial.  I was certainly more than a little impressed.  The facial spa machine is amazing.  I felt refreshed and invigorated when I left and my skin felt silky smooth and tight.~wish it would stay that way~

~~~~~~~~


A friend and I went to a great holiday show last weekend.  I wish I had somewhere to use all that was there, such as these adorable wood cut outs.  There was great looking shabby chic furniture and accessories and while I like it, it is not my style. I did come home with a pretty handmade necklace and earrings and some homemade breads.  It was just fun to be there, visit with the vendors and see folks we had not seen in a while.  It was the perfect way to kick off the Christmas season.

~~~~~~~~


And, I'm happy to report that my presents FINALLY did get wrapped.  It really did not take all that long, it was just getting started that took so long.  I did have a pain between my shoulder blades afterwards but it was short lived and I'm a happy gal to have this behind me.

~~~~~~~~

Hubby is in the process of having cataract surgery.  I say in the process because he has had one eye done and will have the other one done this next Tuesday.  Generally cataract surgery is a fairly routine procedure but Tommy's first one had a little hiccup and it took quite a bit longer.  But, he's doing well, seeing great out of that eye and looks like all is going to be just fine.  The first 24 hours were a little unsettling and once again I was reminded that "it's only routine if it's not happening to you."  Hopefully the next eye will be very routine with no hiccups.  We've spent way more time than either one of want to sitting in the Drs. office.  Ugh, just not fun at all! ~ it's a necessary evil~

~~~~~~~~
This Sunday will be a very special day in the life of our family.  Our Hanna Beth ~our Princess~ will be baptized during her church's morning worship service.  She is a bit nervous and would much prefer to be baptized in private rather than in front of a church full of folks.  But, this CiCi's heart will be so full of joy over her decision to accept Christ as her Savior and follow Him in baptism.  There is no more important decision she will ever make in her life.

Have yourself a great weekend because

  2. I had cataract surgery last year and was amazed at how everything "white" was so much brighter - and I MUST wear sunglasses in the sun! It was all worth it as I only need glasses for reading now!. Congrats to your granddaughter, what a special time for her and your family! Enjoy the season!

  3. Congratulations on your granddaughter's baptism. How special that it will be shared with the whole congregation.

    Looks like the craft fair was fun. I used to sell in those for years but got really burned out doing it. HOWEVER, this week I have been handcrafting snowmen/girls for the first time in YEARS! lol

    Hope you have a great weekend. xo Diana

  14. Your comment/quote about things being routine only if they are not happening to you -- how true!!! My hubby's cataract surgery had some hiccups, too, but now, he's fine. I am praying this second surgery for Tommy goes well without any complications at all.
