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

Vanilla Bean.........Can't get enough of this lotion........need to purchase it by the gallons.

DH says that "I smell like a warm cup of coffee". I can't get enough of this tube of lotion. I have a tube in every bathroom and every year this is the first purchase I make at bath and body for myself. Have you tried it?

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!

Just had to have something different in these jars. I went down to my work room and found a few of my favorite things.

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.
