Good Morning!

I have really missed you...really!  Hope all of you are doing well.....
Can you believe that it's time to start decorating for Christmas?  It really creeped up on me!  I have been perusing all of my favorite blogs and my goodness, there is already some beautiful decor out there!

We have a new computer at our house -yea!  We broke down and bought a Dell - I hope this dadgum thing lasts for a good while.  Yes, I said dadgum!  Our last computer was only 5 years old - is that about the running average for the life a computer?

We are still working on getting all the "info" from our last computer onto our new one.  And, this one needs all the software added to it, as well.  I still can't upload photos, yet...but, soon!

Do you guys know about the Black Friday ads website?  It's awesome!  I have done a lot of shopping already, but this site really gets me excited!  Yep, I'm on one of those crazies that enjoys getting up early to hit the sales.... You'd almost think retailers would be giving stuff away trying to lure in buyers this year.


Time for this week's menu:

Monday: going out for dinner
Tuesday: mini tacos
Wednesday: chicken supreme
Thursday: grilled salmon and rice
Friday: crock pot beef stew

Have a wonderful Monday everyone!  It's good to be back!

Welcome back.. my 18 month old laptop fried in August, so I can feel your pain! I am still not quite up and running yet, with software and stuff, but I was able to get most of my files/data/photos, so the good news is we didn't lose it all!!

Hello again. I just added to my post, and saw your comments. It is actually the "Dollar Tree" on 71st street. I just went there tonight with sis, and they had a ton of these in red and gold..only a few in the silver. I picked up a couple more silver. I will keep one of my noel signs for you. Yes, saw that on curious sofa. I am in awe of that store. Unbelievable!!! Our show is in Broken Arrow this Saturday at Centennial Middle School. I would love to see you there. We have so much to "make" before Sat.

Welcome back!

All my daughters and oldest g'daughter are early risers on Black Friday. Two will be at the lake, arriving late Thanksgiving. While they are shopping, Friday, I'm making Thanksgiving dinner. They always find the best deals. They look at the Black Friday ads, online, too and make a plan.

Glitter and Bliss said...

Well, got your sweet message late in the day.. So sorry I missed you. I tried to call you back around 3:15, but I missed you. I was over at my sis's house crafting and left phone at home. Can you come Sat and get all your goodies?

Shannon said...

I love shopping on Black Friday too! :)

I feel your computer pain...mine is about 5 years old and we are feeling that it is about to bite the dust...which is another issue all together!

Happy Monday!

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
