Just sayin'

This week has flown by like the windy days we've had lately. Today is gray and misty rain outside.
Thankfully, I'm on the down side of the flu-bug and have my to-do list in hand for the weekend.
Abbie is spoiled as usual and is the queen of the sofa and is actually in the process of training right now for a greater purpose.
Computers are down, one in the shop, one slow so by Monday I will have a better connection speed to get some REAL pictures on the blog.
But the pause this week has taught me to slow down. Take care of my physical health and appreciate the simple things in life even more.

Hot chocolate was my best friend this past week, along with tissue boxes and Lifetime movies. ;)

Last night I reached to start back on a sampler and realized my computer that's in the shop has the pattern on it so I put a few stitches in one by The Sampler Girl I started a couple of months ago and worked on the border of it while watching a wonderful movie, The Christmas Box. I've seen that movie at least 7 times but I dearly love it! If there's one thing I've definitely enjoyed these past few weeks is going to Dish and watching the best movies and old TV shows again.

Thank you again,dear readers, for all your prayers. I definitely appreciate them and feel that 2012 is going to be the best and much brighter, I just know it!! I can feel it in my fiber!

Until I can post some pics for you xxxxx fingers, not too much later, I hope you enjoy your Friday and settle in with a hot cup of cocoa and a crackling fireplace or whatever makes you happy!

Stay safe and warm always,

  2. Oh yes, hot chocolate works for me! So glad you are on the mend. Just in time for Christmas. You and the critters take care now. :)

  3. Have a great holiday season and I too hope for a wonderful 2012 for everyone - putting troubles behind us and moving forward. Merry Christmas!

  4. Jennifer: I do hope you are feeling better soon, I love old time movies when I was growing up going to the movies was just so romantic nowadays going to the movies is a big production with the long drive to whatever theater we can find.
    I would rather watch the old timers, Abbie take care of Mom keep her warm and cuddle lots.
    Merry Christmas

  5. I am glad to meet you Jennifer and your blog , so beautiful.
    I love how you are writing and like you, hot chocolate is my best friend with the windy time we have at present .I love stitching in my sofa close to the chimney.
    I wish you a lovely day and stay warm.

  6. I think we all need that kind of a break from time to time - the one that makes you say to yourself "Slow down! You're moving too fast!!" I strongly believe it's the technology we have today that causes us to move too fast. I'm still in disbelief that the year is almost over! It truly did move too fast. I agree that 2012 is going to hold many GREAT things for you and others who found 2011 less to their liking.

    Sending you some warm hugs from Central Florida - and Miss Abbie too!

  7. Dearest Jennifer,

    Wow, you're beating me on the flu bug. Got it a second time and nasty! Thanks for your visit and comment on the sentimental cross stitching.
    Love to you and yes, hot chocolate from real Dutch cocoa is our life saver too.

  8. Illness just seems to be going around. I hope you're feeling much recovered very quickly. 2012 is sure to be YOUR year!

  9. Hope you feel better soon. Have a wonderful Christmas.

  10. I'm glad you are on the mend.
    A big AMEN to taking the time to appreciate the simple things in life!

    Take Care...

  11. Glad you are feeling better! It's a grey day here today.
