Well are you like me and enjoying this quiet in between week. I hope that your Christmas was wonderful and spent just the way you wanted it to be. Ours was exactly what I had hoped it would be. For the first time in many years I felt calm and prepared - what's with that lol - seriously it was just a nice time spent with my kids - quiet and enjoyable. We all talked about how next year there will be a 10 month old added to our holiday gathering - oh what a joy and blessing that will be.
This morning while enjoying my morning coffee and looking out the window I realized what a beautiful picture was waiting for me - so I got up and took it - the hoar frost is just so beautiful to look at and the sun shining across the lake on the frost (which is hard to see) - God's work shining through - beautiful
So what else is new - well I've got a couch and chair in my family room now
nope not the one I ordered grrrrr - the ship date on that has been changed to January 21st that's right January 21st - what's that you say - well yes that would be close to 12 weeks since I ordered it and then I can wait close to 2 weeks more for it to arrive - double grrrrr. Yes that's right - 2 ship dates have come and gone and no couch lol - Well the store I ordered the furniture from feels so bad about this that they brought out something for us to use until then - which was very nice of them since it's not their fault - but he's good that way. Good thing since we have a house full coming here on New Years Eve for a fun evening of friendship. Now I can invite them in to sit down and stay awhile lol.
Speaking of New Years - with 2013 like just a blink away I've been thinking about goals - (not resolutions cuz there is a difference) - I would like to work towards. A new year is full of promise and possibilities and I want to make it count. With the new baby coming that alone is full of promise and oh the possibilities there lol. It's a bit intimidating to put them down in writing and out there in bloggy land so I'm not how much I will share - but I will share a few in the next post that will help keep me accountable. How about you - have you been thinking as well of goals you want to work towards?
It took me awhile to make up the smilebox of the pics below so I think I will sign off for now and head up to the nest. Today I think will be a day for sewing - yahooooo it's been awhile - it's cold out there and a perfect day to stay tucked inside with a fire going and a needle and thread in my hand. Cami has a different idea and thinks it's better to be tucked into her bed
So I will leave you with some pictures from our house decorated for the holidays. The lighting is bad in some of them - but that's how it goes - hey better than nuttin - right :). Today the tree will come down in prep for our gathering tomorrow night and then I will work at replacing much of it this week with snowman - who haven't been out of the boxes in 2 years - I think I've forgotten what I have lol. Enjoy some snippets from around the Farmhouse
