I'm sure Y'all wait with bated breath for what's happening in my life because it's so interesting so I won't keep you waiting one second longer!
Last Friday our neighbor had a tree cut and a huge limb landed on the shared fence between our backdoor neighbor/friend tearing down a section of the fence and knocking a hole in my she-shed. The fellows cutting the tree went way above and beyond to fix my shed and the fence and one of the young men even blew the leaves out from around the shed and most of our backyard! There REALLY are some honest folks left in this world!
I know many of you don't like scents, but I've mentioned before how much I love diffusing essential oils. My current faves are clove, cinnamon, and orange. So Christmasy!
So, this brown spot appeared on the side of my face and I immediately started regretting not using sunscreen this past summer when I spent hours in the sun and as I looked at the spot closer and scratched it with my fingernail it hurt and I remembered talking on the phone with it under my chin and my head cocked sideways and using the curling iron at the same time and no, I didn't put the caller on speaker because I kept thinking it wouldn't last much longer and now I have an even browner, uglier spot on my face and learned two things - don't talk on the phone and curl your hair at the same time and use sunscreen!!!
We've had snow this week and it was beautiful!
There's just something so peaceful about a snowfall and how everything looks fresh and new covered all in white!
(a sweet example of salvation)
I love it when you get a haircut and you know you did but it doesn't really look like you did because you have such a fantastic hairdresser and you get to spend time chatting with her because she's your friend, too, and then afterward you are driving along knowing it's freezing outside and the wind's blowing but you're toasty warm in your car listening to Christmas music and spending time ALONE!!!
I haven't wrapped the first Christmas present, Y'all.
I'm hoping to get started on that today.
I love this time of year so full of all things Christmasy. We went to a play a couple of weeks ago that all 4 of our grands were in (be still my heart) and this past Saturday evening was a girl's night out for my daughter, grand-daughter and me - we went to see The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. I took Jess to see that when she was a little girl at the Bijou Theater in Knoxville. It was wonderful. If you haven't seen it, there are a few movies that are only around an hour long on You-Tube. It's really about the true meaning of CHRISTmas!!!
And, I'll leave you with this because surely I'm not the only one......
Well, that's that about that as my Mammie used to say!
HOPE everybody has a Terrific Tuesday!
Yes, sometimes it is just too peopley out there. I agree 100%. More and more I enjoy just having time at home or anywhere really with just the hubby and me (well and the puppy too). lolReplyDelete
Thank you for the fits of giggles and smiles...I sure can imagine you and I having this conversation. smilesReplyDelete
Yes...we went to Walmart today, and it was "just too peopley" there too!! I haven't wrapped a thing, because I am just getting started on my shopping. I tend to put things off to the last minute and then have serious meltdowns. I was really hoping to skip all this this year with the excuse we were moving. But, no movers in sight yet...no buyers...no nothing...so I've got to get cracking here!!! It'll get done...but...oh well. that's my life. I am sorry to hear about the hole in your she-shed! So thankful they fixed it. Praying that after Christmas you will be able to start "playing" in your she-shed. I know you are anxious to get started on it. It will be such fun...kind of like moving...I'm pretending that I'm moving to a she-shed and I can only take the things I really really love. (it will be a very BIG she shed if I do that! LOL). Have a blessed night my friend. I always love whatever you have to say.ReplyDelete
Oh how I agree with that last little cartoon! A hole in your she-shed?!! Glad it could be fixed and that the construction guys were so good and pleasant! We don't have any gifts to wrap this year. Only gift cards to mail. Kind of sad, actually. I do have a few gift bags to fill, so there is that!! Hugs!!ReplyDelete
Loved your Tuesday Tid-bits! So glad your She-shed got fixed! Now if someone goes to messing with my she-shed that might be fighting words! LOL! You have given me a good chuckle this morning with talking on the phone,,,,,LOL! Hugs and blessings, CindyReplyDelete
Enjoyed reading your tidbits! Those curling iron rascals are hot...I've done the same thing. lol My goodness I'm glad the "tree people" were so great at fixing the damage they caused. WoWReplyDelete
I really enjoyed your Tuesday Tidbits Debbie. What a great bunch of construction workers. That in itself is a nice gift. Loved that cartoon as you know Charlie Brown is my hero LOL! Have a day of blessings my friend.ReplyDelete
