    Yesterday my love and I went out

    and gathered Cedar and Pine and Holly. I have made my own garland and secured it to my wrap-around porch. It is a sight to behold and didn't cost me a dime. *smile* Life is good!!

    Holidays

    It's all I seem to be doing the past two months or so. I was under the impression that due to the fact that we're having a new bathroom this year, they'd be no holidays. Infact, lucky me hasn't really been in the country since June. Woop woop. Well, I started off at a religious...

    I really really love the holiday's

    but this year is going to be a downer. Me being away from my kid's is a total downer. The only thing that will keep me going is doing volunteer work and speaking to them twice on the phone each week. I wish I had a social life. God bless my family for having my back :-)
