January 26

Wishful thinking on this cold Monday but I sure wish I had this pretty blue
reading nook in my house. Love the color and everything looks so welcoming.
Do you have a favorite spot to read?
Please continue to keep my Dad in your prayers we are all helping him
at home right now. It has been a very stressful couple of weeks.

January 5th

Blue Monday Meme @ Smiling Sally's Blog

Sorry friends I have been kind of MIA lately.
I found out I have two auto-immune diseases.
One is Alopecia Aereta and the other is Diabetes.
Two of my siblings have Diabetes and so did my Paternal
Grandma so I am familiar with the disease but it sure
isn't anything I wanted along with everything else.
I also have Psoriatic Athritis  and Sciatica.
How did I get so lucky you ask?  I have no clue.
I had never heard of Alopecia but started losing massive
amounts of hair and have about six bald patches so far on my scalp.
My hair is shoulder length so many of the patches are covered up so far.
But I will probably have to wear a cap or wig soon to work.
So with all this going on my Dad is back in the hospital. He has
fluid on his lungs, kidneys not doing good and he has Alzheimers
He is so sad and confused and it is so hard on my Mom leaving him
in the hospital at night.
On a bright note we went to the St Louis Botanical Gardens Garden Glow.
Here are a few photos I shot. It was so cold out and I forgot my camera
so didn't take many photos but it was truly beautiful!

I love decorating my kitchen window ledge.
This year it is mostly my snowmen. I love
the light up Christmas globe type but have quite
a few other varieties.
Wishing all my blog friends and their families a Very Merry Christmas!

Blue Monday, Holiday decor December 15th

Smiling Sallys  Blue Monday Blog Meme

This week I am sharing some of my Christmas Decorations.
We bought the Snow Man light up picture when we
were on one of our Bed and Breakfast get away trips in Illinois.
This year on my mantel I have a new Mikasa Singing Angel Trio
we bought at an auction last weekend. 
I hope you are all having fun getting ready for the Holidays and
Staying Healthy. My little grand daughter Lily was pretty sick
last week and had to go on breathing treatments but she is up
and around and feeling better now.
