Sunday - January 9 - Yep.... Still up.... Its officially over one week since New Years Day & my tree is still up. See? Nothing on it except dust... waiting to be tucked away. If its there by next week, I'm decorating it for Valentines Day! Ricky thinks I'm joking... I'll even go out & find some red & pink lights. I can even put Cupid on top of it...
Monday - January 10 - Something special... A friend at church is going to be having a new grandbaby soon. I had tried to teach her to knit & she was having a hard time with it (See Dawn, its not easy for everyone - DONT GIVE UP!) ... but she asked if she gave me the yarn & needles that she bought, if I could make a blanket up for her. Of course! I love this lady & her family so I was so happy to create this. There's just something special about making a baby blanket...
Tuesday - January 11 - GIVING JESUS HIGH FIVES!!!!!! .... We were awaiting on some PET Scan results for my daddy. During his milogram at the beginning of December, they discovered he has some tumors within the spine. They sent him to his oncologist... it was a nerve wrecking time... & many of you have prayed along with my family. Tuesday, we got the results that the PET Scan was all clear.... I literally screamed & jumped in my office & just wanted to give Jesus a Big ole' high five!!!! So thank you everyone who was so faithful in your prayers for my daddy!!!! May God be EXALTED!!!!!
(Can I ask that you keep some more prayers lifted as the tumors will be surgically removed Saturday)
Wednesday - January 12 - Winter WonderLand.... Its just cold... & Snowy... its Winter at its finest! I really love to watch the snow... but it caused us to cancel church tonight. Boo! I miss those kiddos when I dont see them. But its nice to stay snuggled in a warm house.
Thursday - January 13 - Makes me think of WKRP in Cincinnati .... I got out of my car from coming home from work & had to throw something in the garbage can outside. I hear something & see movement out of what corner of my eye... & turn & what do I see? About 15 wild turkeys. I hear them all the time when I sit on the front porch but never had them this close to me. These babies were HUGE too... They didnt stay for long - a school bus came down the road & they flew off. Everytime I see these turkeys fly, I think of Les Nessman from WKRP in Cincinnati... anyone else remember that episode? "I swear, I thought turkey's could fly!"
Friday - January 14 - KISS keeps on rockin'!!! .... if you know my husband, you know that KISS is a part of who he is. He loves this band - everything about them. I cant even put his obsession into words. So at lunch, I run out to Hobby Lobby to pick up some yarn & I needed some new sharpies for my journal (that I'll actually show you later in another post) - but they have this area where you can check to see if the sharpie is working & not dried out. I looked & saw this written... KISS rules... It made me smile to know that my husband isnt the only one who loves the bands of the 70's
Saturday - January 15 - Winter Run.... It finally made it to freezing. Like barely. 35 degrees. I was so tired of running on the treadmill & am training again for my 3rd Half Marathon. I keep reading about people running outside in even single digit temperatures so I thought, its at least above freezing, the sun is out - so I'm going to go for it. Know what? I LOVED IT!!! I had a wool cap I had knitted & it kept my head feeling good - I had on enough layers that I was really warm, had the gloves on & two pairs of socks... I so enjoyed my run! But it wasnt pretty - which is why I made sure the light isnt shining on my face here... you dont want to see me with a frozen running face... not pretty at all
Keep clicking away friends!!!!
