New Years Greetings!!
written by Sue with love,  Friday December 31, 2010

It is early evening this New Years Eve, and I wanted to wish all of you a most blessed and happy new year!May all of your hopes,dreams and wishes be fulfilled this new year.May the peace of God fill your hearts, as  you take this new journey.
At midnight tonight we will all close another chapter in this book of our life, and our hearts and minds will be set on writing a new chapter. I close this chapter tonight with a lot of mixed emotions and am looking forward with great anticipation on what new adventures God has in store for me as I write the new one.
God has been, is, and will always be faithful to us, and I am so thankful for this assurance!

We are spending a quiet evening at home tonight as we usually do, dinner, reflecting, and watching an old movie but have also added a new adventure, we will be going to a little town nearby after the movie, they will have their first flea dropping at midnight!!! Then we will come home and start the new year with prayer.
Hope your evening is filled to the brim with much happiness. To each of you who take the time to stop by and visit, I want you to know how much I treasure your friendship, and how truly thankful I am for you.
Much love,

Snow around the farm, it has truly been a winter wonderland, our first Christmas snow in a very long time.

Good Saturday morning!

It is Saturday, isn't it?
 I have been so busy this week, finishing projects that have been on my "to do" list for a long while. It took us two days, yes, I said two days to get our garage cleaned and organized. Oh! I am one  happy camper that it is completed!

Before we started Mr P said "oh! we will have this done in three hours." I just smiled and said to myself , "I wish." And would have taken a picture to show you but was to embarrassed to do so. lol

We were so tired from this job, that we took the next day off, and loafed, lol and then we were even more tired, but  both  were a "good kinda tired".There is a feeling of accomplishment after completing a job like this that I can't find words for except this one "relief."
When going through all of that stuff, I mean treasures, I found a hidden one.
Let's see, what could be hiding in all this bubble wrap?
Have you guessed yet?
A plant stand! I have been wanting one to put some of my plants on in the M-bath, but is wasn't priority on my shopping list, as having food, electricity  in the house was priority, besides the Lord knew I already had one and He knew where it was and had me find it.

This plant stand has been bought for years, and was put in the garage, why I don't know. It must have  really been on sale, as  I don't buy unless it is on sale, and then marked down some more. Truth is I  just forgot about it. Now I know you ladies have never done anything like this, now have you?lol 
My plants are so happy, and so is my bathroom. Plants add so much to a home, even though some around here think I might have gone a little overboard. lol

....Do you remember my goal, of having all Christmas decorations up, and cards addressed by Dec. 1st. Yank! not done! The garage saw to it that this was postponed. lol. I have finished inside,(well almost) and cards are going to be done tonight. That is if I  don't get  side tracked by another project. lol
Enjoy your weekend!
Ecclesiastes 2:24~There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This  also I saw,that it was from the hand of God.
