Today has been a very special day because . . . my hubby and I went to visit a very dear and special friend in our lives at Mercy San Juan Medical Center in Carmichael (between Roseville & Sacramento). Steven was at his doctor’s last week for a follow-up appointment regarding his back surgery (he had the first of three of these operations on his back three weeks ago at UCSF)when during a routine stress test he began to have a heart attack . . . well he ended up having a triple by-pass on Friday!!!! He is out of ICU and expects to be going home on Monday. I marvel at what modern medicine can do now and can’t wait to see what the future of medicine will be like . . . We are sooooooooo happy and feel very blessed that Steven will continue to be a part of our lives . . . Here is a picture of Steven with his new toy (oh by the way-Steven is a Catholic Priest) . . .
I volunteered to drive us home (hehehe-you know I had plans) and after I took hubby to a nice restaurant in Roseville for a late lunch, we then proceeded to the Michael’s Superstore and the JoAnn’s Superstore in Roseville. . . I don’t know if it was because I still had to drive us home in the rain or because hubby was waiting in the car for me but I ended up only spending $2.00 on one little item. This is unheard of for me – I usually end up spending more than I planned or need (LOL) . . . Well, that’s all for today . . . thanks for stopping by and until later . . . Hugs & Kisses . . . LindaB
Today is special because . . . we set up our Christmas tree . . .
The hubby and I decided this year not to set up our big tree, as it means doing MAJOR furniture rearranging in the living room! . . . soooooooo this year we are doing a table top Christmas tree. We were able to use the top and middle section of our pre-lite regular artificial tree and during the next week I will be adding our favorite decorations . . . hmmmmmmmm I wonder if I will be able to control myself and NOT put up every single ornament I own (hahaha) . . . I really love that special feeling you get when you sit in a dark room that is only lite by the lights on a Christmas tree . . . Well, that’s all for now . . . thanks for stopping by and until next time . . . Hug & Kisses . . . LindaB
Today is special because . . . my granddaughter came for a visit and we made “Christmas Sugar Cookies.”
While the cookies were cooling Kyra decided to circle what she wanted from her favorite christmas catalog . . .
Kyra circled just about everything, including a few “boy only” toys (LOL). It was now time to color some of the frosting and gather the colored sugar sprinkles for the sugar cookies . . .
Don’t they look YUMMY! . . . Well, that’s all for now . . . thanks for stopping by and until next time . . . hugs & kisses . . . LindaB
Hi Everyone . . . I can’t believe that it is already December and that Christmas is just around the corner. Where, oh where does all the time go? It seems the older I get the faster time moves, LOL! Anyhoooooo, I thought that I would try to post on this blog everyday this month with what is going on in and around my life to make each day special . . . well I hate to admit it but I am already 2 days behind (LOL – story of my life) . . . Sooooooo here are a couple of pictures about events that happened on December 1 . . .
Hung the “Welcoming Christmas Wreath” on the front door. And yes my front door is green (the side facing the street, the side facing the inside is red) . . . my husband brought into the house all the boxes (13 big plastic bins) from the shed and the first thing that always goes up is the wreath on the door! I didn’t have time to start decorating the inside of my home because I had to get ready for and attend the wedding of Rachiel and Brandon . . .
It was a wonderful wedding and Rachiel was a beautiful bride (Brandon looked pretty handsome also) . . . Well that’s all for now . . . thanks for stopping by and until next time . . . Hugs & Kisses . . . LindaB
