It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...

What a wonderfully full {and tiring} Christmas weekend!

Started the weekend with preparations for our ladies event, "A Colonial Christmas." The Lord gave me strength and I was able to help out and be a part of the event. It was such a neat event, I think it deserves its own I'm sure you'll see more about it tomorrow or sometime  later this week. After the event though, my body was totally spent and I slept on the couch for several hours!
After my wonderful nap we went out for one of my favorite Christmas treats...peppermint hot chocolate from Starbucks. We used a gift card we earned from searching the Internet with Swagbucks. {If you haven't started using this search engine yet I highly recommend it. In the last year we've earned 10 plus gift cards to Starbucks and Amazon for everyday searches. I love free things!} Snow was  even falling very lightly. It's rare for us to see even a single flake so I was thrilled to see it.
 Later I looked out the window and was greeted with this....

Now that's a VERY rare treat here in VA! I stood out on the deck basking in the beauty of the falling snow.
This morning a few signs still remained. The kids in our Sunday School class were thrilled {all three of them}. We usually have quite a few more, but life around here pretty much shuts down at the slightest sign of snow so we were not surprised there were so few.

I'm enjoying the little things this Christmas. Our decorations are not as elaborate or as finished as they usually are by now, but I'm thankful to have the energy to put some of them up! Life is beginning to look more normal for us. I'm now on auto-immune drugs...not sure whether they are working completely yet. One things is for sure I don't have any canker sores {I've had them almost constantly for years. Often 10 - 30 at a time!} and that is wonderful Thankful to be getting better, but can't wait until my energy level is completely returned. {Currently I'm fine to a point and then the energy suddenly goes completely away. At which time I have to sit down wherever I am...which has definitely been on the floor a couple of times!} Thankfully if I rest for awhile I get energy back again! So happy to be able to do the little things again!


  1. So glad you were able to do this weekend. I know it was very important to you. Loved seeing all the pictures (the ones on facebook too).

    Love ya, Mom

  2. So thankful to hear you are feeling a little better! I hope you continue to improve each day!

  3. Love the pics, Lola. Keep 'em coming! It's funny that you just posted something about your ladies event. I just posted one about ours just minutes before I read your blog! You know what they say about great minds......
    Oh...and Starbucks is one of Greg's and my favorite date spots!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. They brighten my day. I love each and every one!
