Hello everyone,just wanted to wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year! It is hard to believe that it is the end of 2012!I feel like I closed my eyes and when I opened them half the year had disappeared.LOL! Must be the fact I am getting younger and not a bit older.Hey, it is my lie story and I will tell it how I like.Isn't that a woman's prerogative?

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

Oh, Jen, thanks for your sweet and loving comment. That is a day that I love, snuggle up watching movies with my hubby when it is SO COLD outside but here a foot of snow on top of it!
I will say a little prayer and ask if he could send you some snow just for you!!!! Then you can go outside and sing Let it Snow, Let it Snow, just like I did. I am getting to old for me to care what people think, I used too, I DON't care what people think of me, you like me or you don't!
I hope for a better New Year for ALOT of us,Jen you and your family and mine, I am praying that it will be a GREAT 2013!!!!!
Big Hugs,
Tricia XO

Happy New Year to you and your family. Sounds like you had a perfect cozy day. I had a p.j. day also, but worked at getting all signs of Christmas back in storage. Another Christmas behind us with loving and blessed memories to hold dear to our hearts. Hope you get that snowfall soon.

Thanks for visiting and leaving such a nice comment. I would give you some of our snow if I could. We are in the midst of a cold spell as well. Such is life here in New Hampshire. It sounds like you have your heart in the right place regarding your resolutions. I hope that you are able to attain your goals - I am sure you will. Regards.
