Christmas 2012

I got up around 7 am to put the ham in the crockpot. It barely fit. I set it on low and put water in it and let it cook for 10 hours. Didn't put any spices or anything in it. Turned out delicious.

Then I went back to bed and slept till 2 p.m. I know I have the life, right. But, the girls and the grand kids weren't going to be there until around 5 they said (turned out to be 6 pm).

Then I got up and set about making homemade cranberry sauce for the first time. All you need is one 12 oz bag of cranberries; 1 cup of water; and 1 cup of sugar. The recipe is right on the bag. Very easy and I will be making it again. I just loved the look of the cranberries cooking and the sound of them popping. I thought it was cool.

After I had that cooling, I peeled potatoes and got them cooking along with the carrots and yams. Last I put in the rolls. Trish got here just when I was putting the browned rolls in the basket. Everything was delish. I took my time with nobody bothering me and I was calm…

Soul Mates

I found my soul mate early in life. Thank God! And 30 years later, we are still going strong. We might fight hard but we also love hard. We are like these fish, always chasing each other never letting the other get away. And yes, we are both Pisces. I feel very blessed.

Pillows & Craft Fairs

I participated in my first craft fair November 10th. I was scared to death. But, I did it! My second one was yesterday. I must say, it is work getting ready for them and so much to think about.

I am selling these pillows for $20 each. Email me at  if you are interested in purchasing them. I personally love them!
