Merry Christmas Everyone

It's been quite some time since my last post and I can't believe Christmas has come and gone. What now? I'm trying to enjoy the last week of Christmas but all I keep thinking about is packing everything up and putting it away. Isn't that terrible? Well, nevertheless I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. I had a wonderful Christmas because my dh was scheduled to be off this year. We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas together and I could not want anything more. Next year will be a whole different story. He is scheduled to work Christmas Eve and Christmas night, yuck. I guess we'll make the most of it like we always do. Today I'm off to visit my Mom and siblings. Really looking forward to it. That's what Christmas is all about is spending time with your family and friends, enjoying good food and company. We had snow the weekend before Christams and it was great. It really got me in the Christmas spirit. Now, I feel kinda sad. I guess it was the anticipation of Christmas and all the decorating and cooking etc. and now I feel blah. Three 1/2 long months of winter. I really hope they go by quick. Does anyone feel the way I do? Please share. I've attached some Christmas decorating pictures for you to view. Nothing extravagant, just a few of my favorite things.

Prim Blessings,

I'm Still Here

Hey all, I know its been some time since I last posted on my blog but its been pretty crazy at home and at work. I hope you are all doing well. Lately, it just seems there aren't enough hours in the day to do the things that must be done. I just started to go to the gym again and I'm trying to get into a routine. At work things are good but busy. I guess I really shouldn't complain. In any case, I am very grateful that I have a job. On another note, my DH went on a sailing excursion with a couple of friends to bring his friends boat down to Annapolis. Poor guys, they really endured some rough seas and cold weather. Some members of our family were concerned because they heard on the news that a 40ft sailboat had capsized off the Delaware Bay. That is where they were headed. This is particularly why I don't watch the news, simply because they don't give you all the facts and details and ultimately leave watchers in a panick. Obviously it was not my DH and his friends, I thank god every moement for looking after them. They ultimately ended up docking the boat in Atlantic City for two days because there was a gail warning and seas were pretty rough. My heart goes out to the family/families that lost someone in that tragedy. Needless to say DH and his friends are home safe and sound.
On a lighter note, I hope everyone had a great Halloween. Stallion and I had alot of fun. I dressed Stallion up as Batman Dog.(he he he) My sister in-law got Stallion a costume last year but he really didn't get to show it off. This year, he loved all the attention he got from all the kids and parents. He really was diggin' it. He is such a good sport. I'll leave you with some pictures of Stallion in his costume and some pumpkins we carved at my sister in-laws last weekend. Prim Blessings,

Cool Mornings

The past couple of mornings have been between the forties and fifties here and its so invigorating. The cooler mornings makes me enjoy my coffee so much more. This weekend I tried to do some crafting but I was pressed for time. Yesterday DH and I went to a clam bake out in Montauk which was very nice. The weather was absolutely perfect. At night they started a fire on the beach which was comforting. The night as beautiful as the day. I think almost every star was out last night. We saw the milky way and probably every constallation known to man. Todays weather promises to be the same. We are headed out to see the oompa bands that come from Germany for the Steuben Day parade. There will be much schnitzel and bier and dancing. :) I just love dancing the polka. I'll make sure I bring my camera. I've posted a couple of pix of my attempted crafts and outside fall decorating. Hope you all have a great day. Prim Blessings,

Remembering Those Who Made The Ultimate Sacrifice

It's hard to believe that 7 years have past since that awful tradegy that changed our country forever. I just wanted to take a moment to remember those who gave their lives and lost their lives. May they all be in God's company. God Bless America.

May we never forget. Warmest Regards,

Gettin' Crafty

This past weekend I got the crafting bug. I've never been a crafter but for some reason I felt that I could possibly make something. I attempted to make some candy corn ornies and some sleeves for my jarred candles. Surprisingly, they did not turn out too bad. I tried to tea stain the muslin, but I guess I did not use enough tea bags and possibly used too much water. I do have to respect the crafters out there because I can't tell you how many times I messed up because I was either side tracked or not paying close attention to what I was doing. All in all it was fun. My mother in-law was rather impressed with my candle sleeves and actually wanted one. :O She made me feel good. Anyhow, I think I will try my hand at some simple crafts for the coming holidays. There's a kind of satisfaction that one gets when they can say " oh, I made that! So to all the crafters out there, I tip my hat to you because I now understand how focused you must be, how much time, effort and creativity goes into making your creations. I have attached some pix for your viewing. Don't laugh because they are rather simple and they are my master pieces lol (do you sense the drama).

More giveaways, hurray! I just love those giveaways. Lisa
    at Black Sheep Prims is having a birthday giveaway. Happy Birthday Lisa! Stop by and wish her a happy birthday. She is giving away a bittersweet sampler and candy corn ornies.

    Colleen at

    Last but not least is Char at

    Good Luck, and until later. Prim Blessings,

    Warm & Humid Weather is Back

    Just when I was acclimating to the nice dry cool whether, summer has to make a comeback. The rest of the week is suppose to be warm and humid and I really am not looking forward to it. I really wanted to get some painting done but I guess I'll have to put that on the back burner for now. In any case, I did get some fall decorating done in the house. :) The outside will have to wait another week or so. Its just as well because I really can't relate pumpkins, haystacks and scarecrows with 90 degree whether at least not here. Perhaps if I lived in the middle of the country or on a farm, possibly. I have attached a few photos for your viewing, hope you like.
