Hello from a stranger!!

Hello my bloggy friends, I hope you all had great weekends and a nice start to this week!

I've been doing okay and I am praying that things will finally start to get some kind of order to them. We've been trying to convince my mother-in-law to come and live with us. She's become disabled and cannot work, drive a car, or really support herself. My poor husband has been really worried for her health and state of mind, but she wants to remain independent...and I can understand that. It's a delicate situation and we only want what is best for everyone involved.

I do ask that you all pray or send good thoughts to my little dog, Pepper. The other day my dear husband found a lump on her hindquarter's and so we are trying to get a vet appointment to see what it could be. We love our little pup as much as we would a child, so please keep her in your thoughts.

We've also begun our apartment search for our move to Virginia. It's coming up in the middle of Sept. and to tell you the truth, I am more than ready to just get it over with. I love it here in Corpus Christi, but since I know I can't stay...I've begun to detach myself some. So please send out your prayers and thoughts that we'll be able to find a new place that we can call home!

Thankfully, it hasn't been all doom and gloom here lately! I know some of you may not want to hear the "C" word just yet, but my dear husband and I decided that this year, we are going to make all our ornaments for our Christmas tree. I've even gotten a bit of a start and plan to do mittens, hearts, stars, and stockings. I think it's going to be fun and I might even make a few as Christmas presents this year. The great part about it is, they are inexpensive(I use felt) and easy to make. What do you think? I'm also working on a project for a giveaway...so stay tuned for that!

Well, I guess I'll close for today. If I don't get back before the rest of the week passes by, know I am thinking about you all and I hope you have a fantastic week!

Life's just full of little monkey wrenches, isn't it? Prayers for your move and also for your MIL and pup.

LOVE the ornaments! (String some popcorn and cranberries for a totally traditional look.) :)

Ah! I'm glad I'm not the only stranger around here. It's hard to be faithful to my blog with so much summer stuff happening! Sounds like your life has been busy too. Always good to wrap it in prayer when it gets out of hand (which it often does when you're me...chuckle). Hope your puppy is okay, and looking forward to seeing your decorations! I love crafting. Maybe I'll make something to give away soon too. Have a good day!

Your ornaments are really cute. My Christmas tree is made up of mostly home made ornaments, but I have to confess that I didn't make them all. My daughter has an ornament exchange every year (been doing that for about 8 years now) So I have quite a collection done with all different kind of techniques. (And I don't ever think it's too early to start working on Christmas. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving the nice comment. Have a good day...
