Saturday, December 18, 2010

Bill and I have been busy all day and still have more to do before tomorrow when the house becomes wall to wall people and kids. I have not had time to respond to any posts or remarks.i have been reading all your blogs tho. I just don't have time.Angel wasn't able to help us so it has been me and Bill. And I am on the slow side.
Here are the pretzels and cookies I have been working on over many days. i would put them in freezer and didn't realize I had made so much.I make two gift boxes and still have all this

And here is our Roxy girl.

OK I gotta go. I love you all and will catch up soon.

Tired Tonight.

Friday, December 17, 2010

Last night ended with some heavy drama with one of my girls. It never ends.
It has been a busy day. But got a lot done.
The groomer came and spruced up Roxy. I failed to check her feet before they left and they did not do a good job on her feet. Am not happy.It wasn't cheap but I didn't mind if he did a good job.
I finished up putting a coating on pretzels and got out all the stuff I had in freezer.Didn't realize I had so much. Will make two gift boxes and that will get rid of some.I was going to make some cupcakes but came up with better idea.
We went to Wal mart to pick up a few things.You all know me well enough i always find extra stuff there.When we were in grocery part getting some tomatoes we spotted some small cup cakes.I told Bill if I was smart I would forget about making cupcakes and just get them,He asked me if I was smart. LOL So we got some so I don't need to make any.
We picked up a few last minute gifts for people coming to party on Sunday.
I got a new digital scale and a cute stuffed bee that is a pillow.
We also got a new rug for Roxy's cage.She has torn up all the outside edge of bed we put in it. Maybe she will leave this one alone .
So we will get house ready tomorrow . We will have a housefull on Sunday. It will be nice to see them and nice when they all leave too.
Out weather is beautiful. I even had my AC on for awhile this afternoon.
I am so far behind in my eamils and sparking. I am sorry and will catch up when I can

    I hope everything is OK and drama free!

I'm so far behind on my computer stuff this week too. I have been so busy wrapping and making goodies for Jason to send out this past week I haven't had time for anything. It feels good to sit and relax for a bit.

Making cupcakes are a pain in the booty! I'd rather buy them too!! Not to mention the frosting on the Wal-Mart cupcakes are to die for!!!! YUM!

Enjoy the party tomorrow!

A Better Day

Thursday, December 16, 2010

Today has been much better.
My grand daughter Brianna just left.She is only grand child that helps me.She changed my bed sheets and then I had a list of other stuff.She took all the plants back outside which is a big help to Bill. I still had some groceries that needed to be put away and she took care of that.Just several small things but were a big thing for me. And a big help. Do I give her special treatment some times.You bet.
My friend Gina came by and brought some good treats for Bill and I. She is lady that doggie sat Roxy.Roxy went nuts when she came in. Gina is going to paint my living room after the holidays. I am tired of my pink walls. Plus red is suppose to increase ones appetite so time for it to go. Nice thing about Gina doing it if I don't feel well I can go to bed. I couldn't do that with a stranger here.
I am enjoying the Christmas cards and if I miss telling someone thank you forgive me.I do love them all. Today I got the cutest homemade ornament from my buddy Tillibee.

isn't that the cutest thing.
My big bright pink Christmas cactus is just starting to bloom

And here is one of my orchards in bloom.It is a small flower but very kewl looking

Oh Bill is on way home with his new ears. It will take a few days for him to get use to them.He says I can't mumble at him now as he will hear me. i told him I would still mumble at him emoticon

  The love Brianna shows for you is a reflection of the love you have shown her. What goes around comes around. I am glad that you are feeling better and I hope that Bill's ears work well for him. I wish that my husband would try hearing aids. He just won't budge on the subject and I have to repeat EVERYTHING.........except the things I didn't want him to hear!!!!!
Your flowers are beautiful..........you do have the magic touch. emoticon

    I haven't been on too much lately. Too many things going on to take care of. Problems with kids and such..it all gets you down. But I do remember that I could be alone with all of it and I am not. I give it to God daily and that is the only way to get through it. And this is the season of thankfulness for his son Jesus. I am truly blessed when I look at it that way. Chin up Eleni. I am sure Roxy and Bill will make you smile. And remember: YOU ARE LOVED!!! emoticon

    Such a sweet baby, Loved the picture of resting Mom and baby.
I have not been around in a week, a virus hit me last Thursday and really did a number on me! Today is the first time I have been out of the house since last Thursday. I sure am behind. But I did get the tree up and decorated.
This can be a very depressing time of year. However, I just have to talk to myself and get on with it. Hard to do sometimes!
Hope you get to feeling better. Take care of yourself and get plenty of rest. emoticon

  Are you feeling okay? I know that over the past 4 weeks I have been very down and I also know that a lot of it is due to the fact that I felt so horrible with the vertigo. That is finally getting better due to a new PT correcting the position of the crystals in my ears. Now I have lots of catching up to do to get ready for Christmas.
Please take good care of yourself. The little one is very sweet.
Is Roxie learning many new things at class?

    Ahhhh this cold dreary weather doesn't bring out the best in we winter sissies does it?

I've been particulary down lately and I know it's the cold and lack of sunshine that is contributing at least partly to it. My dear dieing friend is a big part of it as well. The gallery is holding it's own...but it is exhausting putting in all the hours...I'm hoping that I get my second wind soon!

Cold Tuesday in Florida

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

We are suppose to have record cold weather tonight.It is 33 now and will still go down a lot more But then it will warm up. I stayed in house where it is nice and warm.But have to go out tomorrow.Brrrrr
There are a lot of colds going around. We are having all the family over this Sunday.I hope no one comes that is sick.
Haven't done much today. Did get what little wrapping I had to do done. What took the longest was making some labels I needed. My new program works good but it was not co-operating with me. I was using some very unladylike language. Bill was laughing at me in living room.No heart.I was trying to just make one label that I missed.It would show the one but every time i tried to print it I got a different name.By the 5th try it worked.And I did the exact same thing each time and the print preview even showed the right name.Computers are great when they work right but they can be a big pain.
Am watching biggest loser finale.This is my favorite part of the show.Some look like different people. Most of the guys just look awesome.
Well I think I will sit back and relax. Stay warm my friends as it is cold everywhere tonight

    The Biggest Loser had the finale already? Geez, I have alot of catching up to do!! I'm behind on watching the DVR episodes. I must have 6 or so episodes to watch.

I get frustrated with computers too. They make me spew some nasty words too. emoticon

It's downright freezing here, but that happens every winter. It was -12 with wind chill this morning. It's awful. I haven't dragged out the snowsuit for Addison yet but I think I'm going to soon.

I haven't started wrapping presents yet and I have a bunch that need to ship out this Friday. We'll see if I can get it done in time.

    My sewing machine works with my computer and yesterday was technical difficulty frustration day for me, too. I kept saving something on a flash drive over and over and then my machine wouldn't know what it was.

Finally I saved it in every known configuration known to man and then out of all of those versions, my machine recognized one.

Now if only I could remember which version worked for the next time.

Hours and hours felt wasted and I used my favorite word which begins with s.
