I love blogging so so much. 
It came along at the right time in my life
and I just KNOW it keeps this ole gal's mind sharper than it would be without 
taking photos, deciding which ones to use, looking for things to blog about,
writing something that hopefully makes sense and allows me to show YOU who I am.
The very BEST thing about blogging is YOU.
I thank you so much for faithfully following along with my sometimes silly,
sometimes sad, sometimes just being 'down to Earth' postings.
I have made so many treasured friendships and altho I may never met you
in person, you sure are in my heart.

Merry CHRISTmas, BJ!!!

what a fun way to start off yours & my day, both!
i truly enjoy all your homey postings & delicious recipes. thanks for this one, too.

p.s. would you believe i fell down the garage steps yesterday with a glass vase in my hand.
shattered it & cut my hand badly.
DH thought my foot might be broken.
it got progressively more swollen & painful as the day went on.
He wanted it AND my hand x-rayed to make sure there wasn't any glass left in it.

ER said no fracture but poss torn ligament in foot; got air cast and crutches plus 6 stitches in fingers
hurt like heck...on Percodan now.
foot is less swollen & painful today but fingers hurt worse now that lidocaine wore off
hurts my hand to use crutches due to many cuts across palm & stitches

DH is getting a work out, following all my directions.

DD is bringing Chinese take out for Christmas meal & we're going to sing Fa Ra Ra Ra Ra!

Merry CHRISTmas!
