Happy New Year

Friday, December 31st, 2010

I thought about all sorts of things to post today. In the past, I’ve done a wrap up of the year’s posts. Or I’ve outlined all my goals for the coming year. I may still do those things but not today! I want to wish each of you a happy New Year. I also want […]

Lazy Days

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

We’ve been taking it easy which apparently includes blogging! I just don’t have much to say I guess! I’ve been reading and knitting. I ate too much junk last week but I’m back on track this week. I didn’t dare let it go til after the New Year! James and Lee and I went ice […]

Merry Christmas

Friday, December 24th, 2010

Lee, James, and I wish each of you a very merry Christmas. We plan to just take it easy this weekend. It’s our first Christmas together since James was 4–6 years! We are going to enjoy it. I pray each of you has a blessed Christmas as well.

Christmas Eve at the Prison~Repost

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

I went to visit Lee on Christmas Eve. The visiting room was decorated. A tree stood in the corner its lights twinkling brightly. A toy train chugged around the base,happily unaware of its location. The air was full of the sounds of people in a festive mood. Lots of loud talking, laughter, and smiles. There […]

Christmas Cards

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

Throughout these years that Lee wasn’t home, I tried to send Christmas cards. I wasn’t always very motivated. Every year they were only a photo of James. My friends who didn’t know didn’t need to know, so I sent cards with no letter. Sometimes I didn’t get them out. Sometimes I did. This year choosing […]

A Vintage Christmas Treat~A Must Read

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

I’ve posted this every Christmas since the year I found it. It’s worth reading again and again. Hearing the goodness of God never gets old! I am in charge of our church library. Since it was very much in need of an update, I’ve been weeding out very old books and replacing them with the […]

Tellin’ the Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

Hmm what to say… Well, I’m on a little break. I planned to take off this week at Christmas and enjoy a few treats. It’s probably not the very best for my progress, but you know if I’m going to live healthy the rest of my life, I have to learn how to enjoy a […]

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Any blessings to share? Someone gave us a wireless router for free yesterday! Lee was able to work for someone for a couple hours and got paid a really nice amount of money. We’re enjoying Christmas festivities together as a family. What about you?
