Howdy ALL!

Well well well.. I guess today is Monday. I guess I am okay with that because there is an exciting development! ADAM is undergoing his VERY LAST week of classes (or should I say finals). I know finals aren't normally a time to celebrate but we have been waiting a long long long long time for this. For YEARS we have been working opposite schedules because he had to go to school during the day but very soon I will have some one to go home to at night. So in that sense this is the best Christmas gift ever!

I really have to thank you all for your well wishes! I am indeed feeling better. Not 100% and I still have to sit on a donut but all that positive energy took the pain away and for that I am very thankful. I have a Dr. appt the 17th so I am crossing my fingers!

I was bestowed a LOVELY (truly the graphic if beautiful) awards from THREE beautiful ladies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! From the talented and entertaining Jenny from Wonders of Whimsy . If you haven't been to see her GO.. She has some of the best dolls around and her work is immaculate and did I mention her sense of humor ;) What a fire cracker! ALL Good stuff. Ms. Gina from Cap Nap Inn Primitives Always good for a laugh and a redneck fire alarm(Go ahead ask her about it). Funny like you wouldn't believe but her heart is as big as the Grand Canyon...... okay maybe a little bigger...Check out her little store of goodies. I love her mice! Also from the ever sweet Lisa from LL Creations . Talk about some top notch work. The queen of the 'perfect' girl. Lisa's art is as enchanting as her beautiful personality. Two artists not to miss!

Please donnot be offended if your name is here. I love you all very much but I keep it at seven becuase this process seems to be time consuming although I would love to give it to everyone. This list is in no certain order. I love you all! And all who aren't on the list.. (I promise this isn't "that" list.. everyone will still get presents under the tree)

This weekend was the Trans Siberian Orchestra concert and yes I went and took my donut. I really have no shame. This was the best year yet and they only get sweeter with time!

I got a really bad hair cut this weekend and I am not going to lie as vein as it is I am misearable about it. I asked her to least the length and to shape and she chopped my hair off. I have curly hair it takes forever to look like my hair grew. I am very upset and hate it (I know a strong word) but I am VERY VERY VERY attached to my hair and how it looks.

I didn't get a ton of work done this weekend. Started a few Christmas gifts which REALLY need to get done.

I will leave you with this. Part of my Winter Desolation Collection. That water sure does look chilly. At again, stand back and view from a foot or two away to get full effect!

Smooches my loves. I am sooooo thankful to have you all in my life to send me 'get better' love! I needed it …

Oh, Stephanie you are just too funny! You are always making me laugh. Yes, I definitely do not want the tooth fairy visiting me. I am also so glad that you still went to your concert donut and all. How funny. Thank you sooo much for the award. I will do a write up soon. I love your new painting. I always love black and white. She better not be thinking about jumping in that cold water. I am not trusting that girl. Get back on the bridge little girl!

Trans siberian orchestra?! I am so jealous.
and a big fat thanks for the award - I am so thrilled with the new friends and heart connections here.
Right now I am at home in a horrible gluten reaction actually -- so the kindness you have given me means a lot, just getting by. saying often: This Too Shall Pass.
Seems like it ain't ever easy, ya know?
but love makes it okay.
all the best to you and yours!

Grats on the award Steph! Also glad to hear that you are still getting out of the house :-)

Thanks for your comment on my blog, Steph ;-) I'm working on a second BA in visual art. My first BA is in Psychology. What is your b/f going to school for? I know what you mean about school and working opposite schedules. It was tough on us when my husband was getting his Masters (especially since we have four kids).
