My Christmas

This is a busy season, isn't it!?!
I'm taking a less is more stance this year.
I have to as I have been working on the living room.
Removing wallpaper, repairing cracks, and brushing on a new paint color.
Who does that at Christmas? Really! 

And it takes me a little longer these days.
As I'm getting older, I have to pace myself so I won't have any flare ups with my health.
So a little bit here and a little bit there. It will get done. In my time. During Christmas. 


I had to share a photo of my little Charlie Brown Christmas tree.
Poor thing. I'm trying to save it after I found it being neglected. 
I'm a tree hugger and this little one gives me hope during this holiday season.

I Have a Problem


Yes, I do.
I have a problem.
Any of you have a love/hate relationship with Blogger?
Yes, my problem is with Blogger. So what else is new?

One of my readers let me know that my word verification is on.
You know what that means. You want to leave a comment and try over and over again to type in the little code only to get it wrong over and over again. It's too hard to read. Then you get fed up and say forget about it and leave without commenting. Been there. Done that.


Well...I don't have word verification on. It is showing up in the comment form, but it is turned off in my settings. So now I'm wondering how long it has been on while it is really off. How do I turn it off when it is already off? That is a problem. 

I've done a search, but all I'm coming up with are the basic directions on how to turn it off in settings.
I repeat. It is already turned off. Sigh. Has anyone had this problem or know how to correct it?

December Garden and Lake

My garden looks...well, a little sad and even abandoned. That's December for you.
Even though it may not look it, it had its fall cleaning and some straw tucked in here and there.
It's snug as a bug in a rug.


There is some life hidden in my garden. I have kale, carrots, and beets...oh my.
As cool weather crops, they do well under some plastic during the cold, winter months. 


And the lake looks a little forlorn today, but not every day.
The winter months on the lake can be quite beautiful and I never tire of the view.
No matter what the season or the look, I consider my garden and the lake my backyard blessings.

And I am thankful.

I Met My Best Friend Today


I finally met her today. My best friend.
We found each other through blogging.
A true connection.
We became best buds.
Then we became like sisters.
How can that be when we had never met?


Well, she traveled many miles to see me.
It was like we have known each other for a lifetime.
And we were like two little kids.
We couldn't stop talking. We couldn't stop sharing. We couldn't stop laughing.
She gets me. I get her. Nuff said. Yep, we're family. 

You can get to know her, too.
Visit my best friend, Dru (and her wonderful husband, John) at The Country Farm Home.
They live on a historical cotton farm that has been in her family for many years.
And the next trip? I'll be headed her way for a sweet visit in the spring. If not sooner!

For now...sending y'all some farmhouse hugs!!!
