Some Christmas Decor

I have been soooo busy, I have really been neglecting blogging. But I don't have time with working two jobs.

I have been doing a little crafting, but everything is laying there half finished. I miss stopping by your blogs

and leaving comments. But I do read them and smile and think of my prim friends often.

Here are a few photo's of my decorating and then off to work. Have a wonderful day!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have been really sick this week and it is my year to have Thanksgiving dinner, my sisters and I take turns.

Well finally last evening I started feeling a little better, so my turkey is in the oven and I am ready to roll.

 I want to wish all of my prim friends a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving Day.

 I have so much to be thankful for my religious freedom, my family, my jobs, my home, and my prim friends,

this is just naming a few things, I could go on and on and  on.

  My daughter is the most awesome mommy, I am showing a picture of a craft that she did

with Cole and Riley yesterday! Aren't these the cutest turkeys made out of apples.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!

Anniversary!

November 17th. was Ronnie and my 32 Anniversary. Wow, where have the years gone, we grew up

together. He He We were both 20 when we got married, I had barely been out of the state of WV.

He was in the army stationed at Fort Belvoir, Va. We were married 3 months before we could save

up enough money for down payments and rent to get an apartment. And the first week, we ate a cheese gift

set that his grandma sent us for Christmas.  I was such a naive country girl when we got married, I remember

one time we were invited to a party.

  Well it was a party like I had never attended before. There was drinking and other things I won't mention,

but you have to rem. that was the seventies man.

 Well I looked at my husband and said that I didn't like that party , where in the world was the cake

and ice cream. He He Being in the army he had been exposed to the world more than I had.

  Now look at us, we have 2 grown children and 3 beautiful grandbabies!! I have so much

to be thank for for. We went from a roach infested pink appliances apartment to a home of our own,

nothing fancy but our part of the American dream.

 Well hubby sent me some flowers for our anniversary and we went to a little country inn for dinner, We had

a relaxing evening.

 Would I marry Ronnie again, yes I would in a heartbeat, do I have any regrets. Well yes I do,

I used to love the Bee Gee's,( you young girls won't know who I am talking about). They came

to D.C. for a concert when my hubby was in the army. We didn't have money to go to the concert, but do

I ever regret not going to see them. I should have borrowed the money. He He

Since my Lilly girl had died several months ago, Ronnie's brother has given us his shelty, Bo, he is a new addition to our family.
So much to be thankful for. And I feel like I am a little wisher now to the world. He He
And Ronnie I hope we have another 32 years together.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
