Important Lazy Days...

Yep, I'm busy, busy...busy doing nothing, that is.
Enjoying Christmas vacation with the 4 "J's" and the time Papa bear has taken off work.
But, I will soon get back to my love, my love of sewing and everything crafty :)
My sweet "J" 3 took this picture of me right before Christmas, she's not a bad fact she REALLY enjoys getting behind the lens when I allow her the camera! Ultimately her passion lie's behind the video camera...Santa brought her a Flip, and she has filmed incessantly since Christmas morning! I'm thinking of having her guest gf La Te Da let her daughter share on her blog, and I loved the idea of it. We'll see if she's even interested one day...
Till then, it's just me, plain ol' me, and the nonsense I can ramble on about.
I've found some great inspiration while enjoying my staycation...I can't wait to get busy and share with ya what I've been up to...till then,

Hope you had a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Sunday love

I was laying in bed, in my comfy robe thinking about all the things I love today...maybe I should start my own Sunday love list? Could I keep up with it, hmmm...probably not, but why not give it a try? I'll never know if I don't try.

1. I love that I'm laying in bed, next to Papa bear blogging on my new Mac!!!!

2. I love that Papa bear gets to rest, we get to be least for the next day or two.

3. I love going to church and worshiping my creator whose blessed me beyond measure.

4. I love that the 4 J's aren't fighting today...they've been playing happily much of the day.

5. I love that sometimes my dreams do come true.

6. I love drinking Salted Caramel Mocha's from Starbucks.

7. I love that one of my friends asked me to start walking with her, just that she thought to ask me made me feel really good :)

These are my 7 Sunday love's...for today, anyway!

Sentimental Christmas

Feeling very sentimental this Christmas...

I can't get anything really down in "Blog" know, something that's really interesting and clever to write. I can barely do my daily routine, but I have been listening to some of my favorite Christmas Classics and I just thought I would share with you what's been fueling my fire(barely smoldering coles, truthfully) through this Christmas season...

Burle Ives...who does not love that old Snowman?

Nat King Cole, The Christmas Song

Eartha Kitt, Santa Baby...

Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, Brenda Lee

Bing Crosby...Silent Night

Frank Sinatra, Ol' Blue Eyes himself...Jingle Bells

Hope your having a blessed and merry Christmas season...

My Papa

My Papa, my hero passed away Dec. 1, 2010...this is for him

Pop- I love you and I miss you…already. I want to thank you for being the man, the husband, the father, the grandfather, the friend you were to us, but most of all I want to thank you for sharing Jesus with me. I LOVE how you LOVED him. You knew him, I mean REALLY knew him, you spent time with him each morning and reading the Word of God. You served him faithfully and he was your friend. In my heart, even though it’s heavy and sad, it is bursting with joy knowing your home with our savior.

I remember so well all the many times I would ask you, “Hey Pop, how are ya?” And you would say…with out skipp’n a beat, “Kid…if I was doing any better, I couldn't stand it!” I know, with out any doubt, you could not be doing any better this very moment! Thank you Jesus.

I remember so, so many things that I want to thank you for, here are just a few...

Thank you for being strong, so very strong. Thank you for being joyful and singing out loud. Thank you for laughing, and joking all the time. Thank you for being the BEST joke teller in world. Thank you for taking me with you to change the water in the vineyard. Thank you for letting me drive the tractor. Thank you for dancing with me. Thank you for letting us make club houses all over that ranch. Thank you for giving all us grand kids the ranch to play, and run, and grow up on. Thank you for letting me sleep in your bed with you & Nanny all the way up until I was 10 years old. Thank you for singing Froggy Went a Court’n and bouncing me on your knee. Thank you for always taking me to Sunday school. Thank you for giving me wonderful Uncles and an Aunt; I especially thank you for giving me my mother Jackie. Thank you for saving all your Pop bottles and letting us round’em up to turn in for more Sody waters ( that would be Dr. Peppers for those who are not familiar with Pops talk). Thanks for taking me to the Rescue Mission and teaching me about caring for others that have no one else to care for them. Thank you for taking me with you to dig worms on the dairy. Thank you for Mammoth Pools…and all the many years of camping. Thank you for all your stories, and your childhood memories that you shared with me so generously. Lastly, thank you for loving me so much, so much that you made sure I knew Jesus and that he was my savior. This is not a goodbye Papa…this is my see you soon, because I know I will see you again and we will dance all over heaven together. I love you
