Last night, I enjoyed an evening by the fire, writing out Christmas cards and watching a sappy old Hallmark movie...lovely.
I am alone on this gorgeous, sunny morning, enjoying my coffee and some quiet time. It is cold! Our thermometer on the back porch reads but 28'. Gone, are the last of summers blooms. We have had such unseasonably warm weather, that our Honeysuckle Vines were still in bloom! But, last nights cold temperatures now have them ready to be pruned away. And soon a new season will begin. Call me crazy but I am ready for some snow.
Tomer, Ian and Miss Em are in the woods of Bronson. Probably, still sitting in the Tree Condo, praying that a Deer pass their way. They, will return this afternoon after eating at their favorite cozy, little restaurant in the small town of Colon, Michigan.
I have started the laundry and will finish up some chores around here, while listening to Third Day and the Gaither Vocal Band! Pray you have a blessed, peaceful weekend...enjoy your leftovers!
Love to All!

Well, here it is Thanksgiving Eve! What, I consider the Holiday Season has finally arrived...Yippee! Tomorrow, our families will gather round the table and give Thanks for our many Blessings.
I am blessed, beyond measure. God has given me more than I deserve. A Husband, who serves Him with his whole heart and believe me, Tomer takes that very seriously!
(His Mom made sure of it.)
My girls, live just a few minutes away and I am blessed to see them often. And to be an active part in the lives of our Grandbabies...Well, there are no words for that!
So, this morning, I thank God for all that He has done in my life. For the privilege of being His servant. For giving me a heart full of praise and hands to touch, to love and to serve Jesus.
There, in the presence of the LORD your God, you and your families shall eat and shall rejoice in everything you have put your hand to, because the LORD your God has blessed you.

1. Here I am, just me and my coffee...Yes, Tomer is once again in the woods of Bronson. Today is the last day of Bow Season and tomorrow is Opening day of Gun Season.
2. I am kind of tired this morning, thanks to the Alarm clock blasting me awake in the middle of the night...wonder which one of the Grandboys did that!
3. Have a Hair Appointment at Noon...would like a new Do, but I am not feeling adventurous so I will just get a trim.
4. Errands to run and shopping to do. Since I felt bad all week, I didn't leave this house until last night and that was because I was down to my last roll of toilet paper!
5. Need to stop at the Beauty Supply since I am running low on Nail Polish and a few other necessities. Where I, as always...spend more than planned.
6. Wow! It is really quiet here this morning!
7. Went on Amazon.com and ordered myself the New Gaither Vocal Band CD and since Tomer has been wanting Revelation by Third Day I ordered that too. It will be a Merry Christmas surprise!
8. Well, a Lawn Mower has just broken the silence of the morning. One of the neighbors must be chomping leaves.
9. Will laundrocize later on after my errands are done...what fun!
10, Our Divine Miss Em is spending the night so Supper will be take out Pizza and I know we will make a run to Family Video for a movie or two. We will sit by the fire, eating Pizza and watching movies...Life is just plain wonderful!
Love to all!

Davis Monthan Air Force Base...Tucson Arizona. Our honeymoon was spent making the drive from Michigan to Tom's first Base after Tech school. We spent a year and a half here...wonderful memories.
Nellis Air Force Base..Las Vegas, Nevada where we spent Tom's last year of service. Back gate...flight line.
Today, I am thankful for all of our Veterans. Having been an Air Force Wife, I know, the pain of saying goodbye and watching as my Soldier walks onto a plane, knowing that I won't see his face nor hear his voice for a year. I pray today, for there are those facing this same sadness. Just a different time, a different war. And I am proud of my Tomer (they called him Andy) and remember the boys who served with him...Jerry, Jim, Cam, Jose, Lalo, Eddie, Mushy, Duke and so many more. Thank you is not enough.
Love to all!

After a wonderful weekend...A Church Leadership Conference with wonderful people at a beautiful place in the country. I came home refreshed, renewed and ready to take on whatever, God wants of me.
But, Sunday night I got the Cooties...so here I am doing nothing. Feeling headachey, nauseous and tired. So, I guess God wants me to be still and listen and that's just what this ol' gal is doing! I covet your prayers, not just for myself but my Grandbabies Maddy who has Bronchitis and Ian who is being treated for the H1N1 Virus.
Oh, and for my Kellerbell their Mama, she is exhausted.
Love to All!

Last night we met some Dear friends for coffee and dessert. They recommended Shatila Bakery a Mid Eastern pastry delight. Follow us in and feast your eyes!
Be sure to click on photo's to enlarge.
Isn't it beautiful? Such a lovely and quiet place to gather for a nice visit.
How do you choose??? I was overwhelmed as I tried to take it all in and decide what on earth I would like.
Yes, even more. There was 6 of us and not 1 of us chose the same thing! I finally just said "I'll have that" while pointing, because I could not pronounce the Arabic name of it...didn't even try!
As we were leaving, I saw that they offer a variety of homemade ice creams too. Next time I will try one along with my pastry. Yep, pastry ala mode...but I don't think that's what they would call it!
Love to All!
