My goodness! It's already a new year, and I have not posted on my blog since December 17th. Shame on me! But I have a great excuse...I've had this wicked little mutating cold that keeps coming back. It's kind of like the little mucous guy on the Mucinex commercial...he's come to live in my chest! I have had sniffles, a cough, a sore throat, more sniffles, a worse cough, and finally we found out last week that I have bronchitis. URG!!! What a bad time to be sick...over Christmas...but then I was in some GOOD company there! My hubby and son were/are sick, and so were my two sisters-in-law, my niece, my nephew, and my mother and father-in-law. Goodness gracious! Can we be done with this please?
Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We sure did! My hubby and I both got each other brand new thin-line ESV Bibles. Cool! He also got me a comfy, cozy, fuzzy green blanket; a very cool Zyliss mandolin for slicing veggies and other things (which yes, I already cut myself on!), and the DVD of The Nativity Story movie. He got me some other nice gifts as well. I also got a brand new red Cuisinart teakettle, a gift certificate from one of my favorite clothing stores, a new cookbook, two new chips for my karaoke machine, and a wonderful Chinese teacup that has a strainer and a lid! And my precious 14 year old, who knows that I LOVE snowpeople, got me a darling soap dispenser that is shaped like two cute snowpeople standing together. I LOVE it! My parents sent money for us to be able to fly out there and visit soon. YAY!
God has really blessed us this past year, and I pray that we will be able to be a huge blessing to others. After all, everything that we have is His, is from Him, and is for His service.
Thanks for reading, and have a blessed day!
PS...I will begin to feature more Etsy products here pretty soon...when I'm feeling a little better.
