After a wonderful night's rest I feel SOOO much better!
We're being homebodies until late this afternoon- no plans until then. And starting this evening we're going to be busy,busy. It's the grand celebration opening of our church and we have special speakers and things going on everyday. I hope to take some pictures of it to share later...

It's cold out-- so that when you breathe in deeply you get that sharp, biting sensation in your lungs. The grass is trimmed in white frost, each individual blade touched. Pepper is curled up at the base of the radiator in our studio, snoozing contentedly. The quiet hum of background noise of HGTV. I've been entirely lazy and only just now showered and dressed for the day. NO REGRETS! Ahhh. LOVE days like these. Blog surfed a bit this morning. Found tidbits of inspiration and amazing creativity of others. Searched Ebay for American Girl dolls for a certain girl of the house for Christmas....no luck yet. Responded to some Emails, read some blog updates of friends.

LOVE my long distance friends. Love the new friendships I've established. There are only a few- but they are special and true. Keeping in touch with what's going on in their lives. Getting to know them through their daily entries~ full of thoughts, questions, jokes, daily to do lists, family activities, their creative endeavors. I hope to meet up with some of them someday...

I didn't end up doing any pages last night- just pawed through some crafty stuff, read some articles I'd stashed and forgotten about and then cuddled under the covers and watched an episode of LOST with the hubster.

Got up this morning and made some ham, cheese scrambled eggs and amish friendship bread for breakfast, with coffee. Mmmm. Had to keep those Justice League SuperKids fed, ya know...



At Matthew's insistance and sincere pleading, Austin spent the night last night. Apparently the reason was that Matthew REALLY needed his help in beating a new Batman/Superman X-Box game. lol. Silly boy... but quite resourceful in his reasoning.

Josie went over and played with another cousin, Tori for a few hours last night. Can you tell she stayed up WAY too late last night?? Check out those circles under her little eyes!! Sheesh!

Here's yet another fantastic creative blogger to check out...LOVE her latest creation, Ruby. LOVE HER. WANT HER. She's so adorable...

Stupid blogger.

Okay. The 28th? Has it really been THAT long since I checked out your blog? Holy smokes. I'm such a bad friend... please forgive me. So glad you're feeling better girlie! I guess a good nights rest was just what the Dr. ordered, eh? How was the grand opening celebration of the new church building? That is so exciting! I hope it works out when we come up - I'd love to go! And OMG!!! The kids look so FLIPPIN' adorable in their costumes! Love how they're posing with their little hands on their hips... SO CUTE! Josie makes the cutest Wonder Woman ever... love her! Okay, I'm off before this becomes yet another novel, lol! Have a GREAT day sweets! LOVE YOU!!!
