Merry Christmas to all!

 2020 is almost over!  I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  I don't blog as much as I used to but all things considered I get done what needs to be done and happy about that!

My desk this week is pretty much the same as it always is so don't think I will waste time posting a is a mess with all the crap that has accumulated.  Stormy continued to hold down the fort for me and keeps me on the straight and narrow most days.  Wonder why I am talking about my desk?  It is Wednesday and WOYWW silly!  Check it out on Julia's blog Stamping Ground!

We haven't been doing much but staying at home...too fearful to even get out to go to the pub.  It used to be an every Monday and sometime 2-3 times a week but now we are lucky to get out to go to the Doctor.

Chuck was back in the hospital again with the fib-flutter and has been started on more meds that seem to have more side effects then doing good.  He is having to walk with a cane because of weakness and doesn't feel like doing much of anything!  He is keeping a good attitude!
Christmas is rapidly approaching and I got the kids and grandkids covered but little else.  I got the tree up, the house decorated outside and in and did 3 Christmas themed diamond paintings.  Been having issues with cold and the arthritis I haven't done much in the way of card making or scrapbooking.
Christmas isn't Christmas without Dala Horses!
The Tree is up and the Snow Village is out!
The outside is done and we actually won an award and $25 check for being 1 of 3 houses on our block that was decorated nicely!  Not quite the Griswold Christmas but it was fun to do.  I love Snowmen and we have called Christmas Snowman Day forever.

Okay that is it for me!  Got to get off here and get ready to go to the Doctors!  Never ending as we age it seems!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  10. Good to see your post. Love your photos. Your cat could be a brother to our Bailey. Our area NW Iowa was hit hard yesterday with a blizzard 55 mph winds, ice,and snow Town was 18 hrs without electricity. Bright and Sunny today -3 a big drop from your 50's we were having. Such an unusual world this year IN EVERY WAY. Wishing you and yours a MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS

  11. Hi, yesterday was crazy with the washing machine breaking down and still not fixed and picking up the Christmas shopping, even the dogs didn't get their walk so I might have missed you but I'm here now. Your decorations look great and the diamond paintings too. Wishing you the best Christmas possible. Hugs, Angela x10x
