The Christmas spirit is still here at the homestead

Mario and me last week during Christmas shopping at the Mall of Georgia

Well today I got to sleep in again and it was wonderful. Warm bed and snow on the ground outside to wake up to. The temps are going to be high  of 33 so not much will melt, maybe.
These joints and bones though are not going to be building a snow man today. I cooked an 8 lb ham yesterday and it was GOOD! Enjoying brunch now with a cuppa tea to go with.

Nesting is in order today. Last night, I finished the Abigail's Christmas Morning sampler and the house was such a mess, couldn't find my large sewing scissors to trim the fabric. So, plan to delve into finding those again after my caffeine fix. When that's finished Body Guard and I have 13 stair treads to put down and to cut the liners to go under them so we won't fall. I can't wait to see it!

I'm always working on something around the house. Hoping our bedroom stuff comes in by the next couple of weeks because we are having company and I would love to have the house together.

Santa was up last night packing boxes out to send as the kids didn't show up or even call. I hope they had a great Christmas and their goodies will go out tomorrow in the mail. HO HO HO!

I started this weekend stitching one of my own freebies and found an error, so I will correct the pattern when finished. I think it's going to be a cute one.  :)

Now onward to cleaning and decluttering.........wish me luck with putting down new stair treads with hubbie today. Home improvement projects are just so much fun for me.......NOT for him though.   LOL

This weekend went by toooooo fast.

Amazing Grace,


  1. I'm so glad you got your snow for Christmas. I didn't particularly want the four or so inches we got, but I was hoping for you! Looking forward to seeing Miss Abbie's sampler finished. Good luck with your home "fixes" today!

  2. Wow, Jennifer--you are so pretty! Love your boots. ;)

    Your Abigail sampler and those treads sound awesome; so looking forward to seeing some pictures. :D

  3. I'm glad that you got your snow for Christmas too, Jennifer. Although I always have to chuckle at people who want it. We don't have much choice up here - ours has been around for two weeks and I'm about ready to see it go.

    Can't to see Miss Abbie's sampler. And good luck with the stairs. There is always so much to do around the house, isn't there?

  4. Merry Christmas to you, Bodyguard and Abigail! Hope 2011 is a wonderful year for you all :) I don't often comment these days, but wanted to make sure I left one to tell you how much I have enjoyed reading your blog this year :)
