I am so blessed I do not have to be out in the snow. This is my driveway 20 minutes after I shoveled it. I just may have to wait until my DH gets home and let him do it while I make supper. The worst is knowing my children and their families have to drive in it. Plus it's still early in the season. We will get a lot more. YUCK

These things hanging are pomanders. I just love them so the flat ones are hanging on the wall next to the washing machine. My husband doesn't like things like these but I do. My friend Nancy gave me 3 beautiful ones (the one with the raised yellow flowers) she gave me 2 of them and one is hanging in the bathroom and DH is taking a shower now so I'll just let you know it's there. Nancy also gave me skin cream that is so nice to use after a warm shower.

The tall one is my deer happy husband whom after 3 years got a 6 pointer deer. His friend is in his 70's and went with him. (Thank-God he did he helped him pull it out of the woods.) Being a smart woman I wouldn't of shot the deer unless he was on my truck so I would'nt have to lift it. Jim was happy for 2 weeks. He gave our neighbors some of the meat and we were invited over to dinner, I need to pay them back soon as we've gone there a few times for dinner.

I started making these as Christmas gifts but I will have to go back to baking bread and wash-clothes to finish this years list.

My friend has a lot of really dirty glass blocks in his garage and his wife is very happy I wanted them. I got out my drill and put on the diamond tip and started to drill through the back side of the block...Easier said than done, but not bad, then I took a string of 50 multi-colored lights and slowly put each light through the hole. Then I wrapped a big red ribbon around the side and bowed it on the top and plugged it it. It makes a great night light looks cute under a tree lit up. So far everyone I gave them to claimed to really like them. I want to make at least 10 more and my friend is willing to give me more blocks but for the life of me I can not find any more lights. So I plan on baking bread and making washclothes to give out to the friends you don't want to buy gifts for but you want to let them know you want to give them something because they mean a lot to you. So look out dollar tree next year I'll buy at least 15 boxes of lights.
Do you think they are pretty???

My pumpkin this Halloween, I carved one for my mom but she took it before I got a picture of it. Next year I will have my camera ready.
We went to my future DIL's & my wonderful son Justin for a pumpkin carving party. It's the 3 one we had and plan on having many more. It was a lot of fun.
Our neighbor Clayton and Mike on the left
Jim's daughter Jaimie & Kevin(boyfriend) shared the day with us also. Dolly stayed on the ground she has a bad knee she said she still loved the ceremony. We all did.

It was a beautiful (cold) but sunshine and good friends went to the Navel Park in Buffalo,NY for memorial day.My Husband Jim holding our grandson Giovanni was in the Navy for 4 years.

Never let this man borrow your camera he will take forever to give it back and when he does he will forget to bring the cord you need back with it.

But isn't he just the cutest?
