Various Things to Mention
I have a few things that I want to share this morning. So bear with me if I seem a little scattered. First, I want to say thank you to everyone for the lovely comments that you all left yesterday for my mom. Well, for me too. But, thank you for remembering my mom. She takes such pride in her children. And I can't even begin to count the amount of times she has let me vent, given me advice, pampered me and yes, even told me when I'm being an ass. You gotta love that in a mom and I certainly do!
Secondly, Melissa from The Inspired Room also named me in the You Make Me Smile Award. I am so honored to have been given this award not once but twice! I think about everyone who comments on my post and not a one of them doesn't bring a smile to my face. To be able to keep company with such beautiful and caring people truly humbles me. And Dena at Swaddle Cottage gave the award to my niece, Gina. Oh what a sweet, sweet thing for her to do. Dena you have no idea how much you have just touched her soul. And I thank you for that as her very over-protective aunt.
Which now leads me to my own children. My son, Jesse, has started his own blog. Gina helped him set it up the other night. It was a surprise. If you have a minute, please check out his blog and offer him any suggestions that you can think of. I'm so proud of him!
Now about the music...I had only intended to keep Christmas music on the one day. It was just a little bit of whimsy for a post about a Christmas dinner. But, now - now that it's been up, I can't seem to bring myself to take it off. I love Frank Sinatra and it reminds me of Christmas when I was a little girl. My father loved Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack. And since he was not what one might call a "fan of all things music" (like my MOM!) we listened to them a lot. And while I'm sure that you can probably already tell from the stories I have relayed, my childhood was more than memorable. It was beautiful! And any trip down memory lane I can take, I do! So I hope you don't mind, but I think it's gonna be up for a while. I can listen to Christmas music in the dead of Summer. My sister - she doesn't play Christmas music until Thanksgiving night. She's very disciplined. It means more to her when she waits. Not me. I could listen to it at any time!
And lastly~ whew finally, huh~ I wanted to show you a new little purchase. I ordered this cute little crock at Yorke Towne Shoppe and it came in way faster than I had expected. My goal today is to get down there to take a few pictures for you to be able to see this magnificent place. She is in the process of changing her website which she does not like at all. I keep telling her to start blogging!! Anyway, isn't it just the cutest thing you have ever seen?? I love it!!
Ok, thank you all for bearing with me this morning while I tackled a few subjects. Have a great day everyone!!
One more thing: Please stop over and visit Robyn at The Happy House of Haas. Her house isn't so happy these days. Maybe offer a prayer for her and her family. Thanks!!
