Let's help Michelle win this money for her local food bank, it only takes a minute to hop over and vote!
I did some Christmas shopping today. I made a list and stuck right to it with just a few extra things thrown in. It helps to have a list rather then just wander around the mall hoping something will catch my eye.
I brought the bags in and sat them on the kitchen floor which was still a bit damp from being washed so much to my surprise when I moved them a little while ago I found that I have permanent writing on my floor....... Any idea how to get writing off your floor????? Sigh.....
When Mom was in the hospital for her surgery last month I took a few pictures from her room. Talk about a room with a view! If you look real close you will see a white house up on the hill on the right hand side of the river. We live in the woods behind that house, well actually not in the woods, we do have lawns, pastures and open spaces but from this angle it does look like we live right smack dab in the middle of a forest!
I haven't been on a rant for quite some time but I feel one coming on. Why is it that when we walk into the mall we have to be assaulted by ginormous pictures of Vic*toria's Se*cret boobage?!!!! It hits you right smack in the face! What do you say to your children or grandchildren who want to know why there are pictures of ladies in their underwear on the wall????!!!! Is this sleazy or what? Am I the only one offended by these larger then life, air brushed, enhanced bre*asts? Now if you want to shop there that is all fine and good, not that there is one thing in the place that I would put on this grandmotherly body without going into fits of laughter, but if you have the shape for it then go for it but PLEASE don't make me look at two story high bo*obs when I am trying to do my Christmas shopping!!! 'Nuff said. There, I feel better.
To think that Thanksgiving is just a week or so away. It is such a wonderful holiday when we all get together and enjoy each other's company along with wonderful food. I love Christmas but Thanksgiving is just a bit more low key. I'm having a smaller crowd this year as some of the family is going to be out of state, probably about 20 or so. I look forward to it each year as we have it here at my house. We have so much to be thankful for this year as always. When I think of the hardships that so many are going through I just count my blessings that we are warm, have plenty to eat, have good health, have family that we love around us and so much more. I know you all feel the same way too! :o)
