It has been a cold day but still no snow! I am wanting snow not as much as some of you have been blessed with of late,just enough to make the cold worth it.Is that to much to ask? Just remind me of this if and when we get dumped with to much snow.Say ...hey Jen,you are the one that opened your mouth and wished for it,so hush and deal with it.LOL!
There has not been a lot going on here other than I jerked the Christmas decor down on Thursday and ran to Lowes for paint.Yep,that ugly peachy color in my living room is no more!It has been replaced with a color called Linen by Valspar and I am loving it! After replacing the furniture I decided not to put so much back on my walls to give the paint even more time to cure.The look is growing on me so much that I am thinking of thinning things down in other rooms too.
Any special plans for tonight? I have spent the day snuggled up with Gretchen watching movies with hubby and stitching.A perfect way to spend a cold day.I love days where you stay at home,snuggled up watching tv, reading,or stitching away, there is just something special about being home when it is cold outside.
My friends I am going to close with my wishes for the New Year..I really don't have the usual type of resolutions to share.I just want to work on being a better person,more humble,forgiving and more thankful.If I don't have as nice a home as maybe someone else then I don't want to fret over it,my home is a blessing and I am striving to be more thankful.There are two words I want to eliminate from my vocabulary this coming year...lucky and proud.There is no good luck, only blessings and I do not want to be proud,I want to be thankful.Not that there is anything wrong with saying proud or lucky it is just a way of reminding myself where my blessings come from in this world. If I can reach those goals then I will be a happier ,healthier person and a better friend to people.Humility is the key to heaven and pride goes before a fall.I want to be closer to God and if I am then everything else will work itself out.May the Lord bless and keep each of you in 2013! Hugs and love,Jen
