Happy New Year

It's that time of year again to celebrate a new year. I am slowly getting the christmas decorations down. I take a room at a time each night and that seems to
be working.

What's comming up for me in the new year is to complete projests in and outside
the home that I just couldn't seem to complete last year.

I am taking less weddings this year due to the travel plans and things we want to
get done around the house. Painting, decorating, landscaping etc. I have my list written out and I am sticking to it. LOL

Cheers to you and yours from Mr. Blossom and I.

Receipe for illness.............I think it's more than a cold........

Girls, I have done everything I can think of.
Mr Blossom has had two Z-packs from the doctor
Homemade chicken noodle soup with homemade noodles
Some real tender loving care from Mrs. Blossom
Hot steaming hot jet-ta tub bath
Home tea with honey
History movies
Nothing is working.
I am worried that he won't be well for the grand-kids
for Christmas eve. I have made him another doctors appointment
for Monday evening and I wish the doctor could give him and old
fashion penicillin shot. I don't think they do that anymore do they?
I felt bad yesterday and we both stayed home and just laid around.
Today I finished wrapping and washed all the serving dishes for Christmas eve.
Look for the Christmas final table-scape at Susan's for Tuesday.
Weary Blossom

A few of my favorite things.....

I have been collecting Lenox christmas items; here are a few of the ones that are my favorite. I also have other lenox items not related to christmas including a lenox rooster!

Let it snow, let it snow................

I'm ready for the snow tonight. I have my friend birdie here........
And my new white scarf, made from white ribbon and a little snow to get me
started. One of our vendors just stopped in here at work and told me we are
expecting snow tonight. It's cold, dreary and I need to run to the local
tree farm to pick up some greenery for my urns outside. I'm looking outside
and wondering if I grab my coat and go, but burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr it looks aweful
out. I think I will have hubby to drop me off and wait for me so the car will be
warm and do this on our way home. Yes! that sounds like a plan.

Santa Sent Me Some Helpers..........

Here are Jacob, David and Kara. The grandboys have been helping since they where
both 1 year old and this is Kara's second year (she is now 3 1/2) . They are wonderful grandkids but after 5 hours this day I was ready to send them home. Now I will do some rearranging and then take photos of the final finished tree. Jacob and David can now put this 10 ft tree together by themselves and they are getting better each year with placement of ornaments and lights. They do grow up way too quick.

Being Thankful..........


Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

Here's One Of The Many Things I Am Thankful For........

Thanks for being one of the 'girls in my circle!'


When I was little,
I used to believe in the concept of one best friend,
And then I started to become a woman.
And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up,
God would show you the best in many friends.

One friend is needed when you're going through things with your man.
Another friend is needed when you're going through things with your mom
Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you delight in your children and their activities.
Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.
One friend will say, 'Let's cry together,'
Another , 'Let's fight together,'
Another , 'Let's walk away together.'

One friend will meet your spiritual need,
Another your shoe fetish,
Another your love for movies,
Another will be with you in your season of confusion,
Another will be your clarifier,
Another the wind beneath your wings.

But whatever their assignment in your life,
On whatever the occasion,
On whatever the day,
Or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym shoes on and hair pulled back,
Or to hold you back from making a complete fool of yourself ..
Those are your best friends.

It may all be wrapped up in one woman, But for many, it's wrapped up in several..
One from 7th grade,
One from high school,
Several from the college years,
A couple from old jobs,
On some days your mother,
On some days your neighbor,
On others, your sisters,
And on some days, your daughters.

So whether they've been your friend for 20 minutes or 20 years,
Pass this on to the women that God has placed in your life
To make a difference.
