Our Gingerbread Christmas

This weekend we started the Gingerbread Houses. This is something that we do nearly every year. Here is Trisha's house. I didn't get mine finished because I didn't get it baked.

No, Trish is not eating the M&Ms. It just looks that way. But then, what is wrong with eating chocolate.

We picked up the toys to donate to Toys for Tots. This is our favorite holiday charity and it has given us a chance to shop for things for kids when we did not have any children for gift giving. I bought a baby doll that, when you push on her tummy, she talks and cries, etc. We also got a Barbie who has a dog and lots of accessories to play with. For the boys we got a Yellow bulldozer and an emergency car playset.

Today I am grateful for my daughter. She doesn't hear it often enough, but she brings joy to my life. I enjoyed the day with her today making the gingerbread. It brought the joy of the season into our lives and gave me the desire to have a Christmas Holiday.

We did get our Nativity out. So for Christmas is the Nativity, one Santa, and China (the panda bear) dressed as a Christmas elf.

Let us all start the week as a new life. Reinvent yourself and find the joy in every day.

Find the joy. Live the Joy. Grin until you feel it.

Starting over

It is a beautiful day. It is not raining. It is warm. The turkey smells wonderful and tastes even better.

Today I am grateful for...

All of the changes in my life. Working only three days a week has been wonderful. Of course, I haven't gotten much done. All of the projectgs I had planned to do were left undone. I have even fallen down on my 10 minutes a day of organization. That was the challenge from Oprah.

I am grateful that I can start over. Each day is a new day with new challenges and new opportunities.

A New Day

Tomorrow I start my new life. It is not often that a person gets to start over. But tomorrow I do.

Never will there be a better Monday. It is starting what will be the best week of my life.

Today I am grateful for my family. Yesterday they spent the day picking apples and pruning my apple tree. I say my apple tree because my husband keeps threatening to cut it down. Plus, next weekend my daughter is going to bring her new cat, Wilma, to visit. Wilma is going to have surgery.

I have just discovered two new cousins. I firmly believe that we are sent where we need to be to achieve the things we need. I went onto a website on a whim, I really do not remember why, and now I have "met" cousins. These girls are the daughters of my Father's sisters. We lost touch with them about the time my Grandpa Nay died.

All in all, it has been a wonderful weekend.

I am so excited to start my new life.

What a Life!

I have decided that this is the start of a new life. Next week I will be starting a new job in that I will be working from home. This is the beginning, the opportunity to start a new chapter, to be able to choose exactly how to spend each day and decide what needs to be completed each moment. Oh, to decide what is most important to me. There are so many different projects that I would like to attempt.

So many choices and so many chances. What would be best. What would be the most fun. What would satisfy me the most?

As for me, making bread in the morning is the first project. The last loaf was a little bit heavy, so wish me luck.
