Was Saturday really the last day that I wrote a post?
Mercy, where has the time gone? Somebody must've stolen it!
That reminds me of a funny story...
When Country Boy worked at a rather large corporation in the city, he lost his traveling coffee cup that he kept at work. You know the ones with the handle and the lid? He went on and on about how he could NOT believe that someone would steal his coffee cup! This went on for months I tell ya!
Several months later, he went to one of his coworkers' desk to discuss a project and lo and behold there was a coffee cup that looked exactly like his sitting on top of the filing cabinet. When he asked about it, the coworker said, "Yea, you left it here." Ha! It wasn't stolen after all! (I'm glad I didn't see what that coffee looked like after sitting for several months... ew!)
The daughters and I still tease him to this day when he can't find something! We say, "Somebody STOLE my (whatever it is he can't find)!" Thankfully, my hubby just laughs! He usually finds the item awhile later, heehee! And no, I didn't hide it from him for those of you who are wondering!!!
It's been busy here at the homestead these past few days. Christmas decorations have begun to spring up in the house, on the house and in the yard...
The above picture took me several years to finish. It was so large that I worked on it off and on between other projects. Unfortunately, this photo does not do it justice. There is blending and gold filament throughout the stitching as well as white and gold beads.
... a few more presents have been purchased and a trip to Lowes was made culminating in a pit stop at the
Hog Trough Golden Corral after hours of pondering and decision making.

We finally purchased a bath tub to replace the one Country Boy tore out a while ago. I'm excited that I just may get my bathroom back in order before it gets cold down here. I was not looking forward to traipsing across the cold house after showering in the guest bath!

Speaking of cold, it is NOT warming up today like it usually does. Brrr! I know, for many of you a day in the low 60's is pleasant! But for us Floridians who are not having hot flashes yet.... it's cold!
On a different note, I am participating in a button swap with Nancy at A Rural Journal which sounds like fun! I will be adding her button to my sidebar beginning tomorrow and will leave it there for the month. If you would like to swap buttons with me, please let me know!
Till next time,
