The weather can make you appreciate warmth and cosy like nothing else. I found out that I have a couple of bulging discs. Physical therapy is making a wonderful difference in my discomfort (miserable-ness).
I've been crocheting on the walnut pattern throw every day....I try for half an hour or more, and I am getting reacquainted with my spinning wheel. I tire very easily but am determined to gain back a little ground here and there.
The new Magnolia Journal magazine is out now....you know, the one by Chip and JoAnna Gaines and it is really a special issue. I like it and have read it cover to cover. It has great tips for simplifying a wardrobe and yummy looking salad recipes. (plus, other good stuff)
We stopped at a thrift store this afternoon and happened on a buy one get 2 free. Yippee, that was fun. My favorite purchase was a James Herriot book about his lovely England. 'James Herriot's Yorkshire'. I've always liked his books, but I thought the tv series about his vet's life a bit dull. Maybe I didn't stick with it long enough.....anyway, there's nothing like a book. And I love the way he always told the bad right along with the good stuff. (with humor, of course..which is easier to do after the fact than during, for sure). Wishing you a happy week-end,

Sorry I haven't posted for so long. I am having trouble with my back and supposed to get an MRI but scheduling doesn't call and I wonder really what they can do anyway besides PT. Something 'clunks' and 'clicks' in and out at the bottom of my back. yes, really, it does.
We are having a sunny day with bare roads here in our part of Pa. Love the sunshine so much. Yesterday was so dreary and overcast. I hope your day is a sweet one. Some are like that you know.

I strung some 'seed' lights in the dining room and they look so nice =)....I got them at Lowes for $9. for 9 feet? or was that 6 feet? We are almost ready for Christmas....just a few more things to wrap. Hubby has the wood-burner going and the heat feels wonderful.
I've been good and almost have the ironing caught up. A real triumph that is! I have been listening to the King James Version of the Bible. This was in the Apple App store. Its called 'Go Bible' (I think) and it is a dramatization. Very nice. I put it on the sleep timer and that is so nice. I think the book of John is free and if you like it you may purchase the rest. I like it =).
Better run....hubby is home. He stopped to get 4 dozen eggs from his Aunt....she has about 12 chickens and they keep busy laying eggs. They are lively girls....I like them.

Well, my missing book has been found! Apparently, I had laid it on the cellar steps and it got knocked over into and behind a large fern sitting on the bookcase next to the steps. It had to be answered prayer, or I don't think I would have found it until the fern needed to be watered.
It rained cats and dogs here today.....plus a nasty cold blowing wind. We did go over for therapy and then hurried home to make lunch and rest. Now, I think I just may go watch one of my favorite Christmas movies. If I can stay awake...that is.
