Merry Christmas and Peace on Earth

 Wishing all my Blogging friends a wonderful Christmas!!

  Hubby is busy watching football. I have a wonderful fire going this Christmas Eve. I quickly went around the house taking pictures of my little home.Time to finish wrapping.
                                                       I never did get the third wise man

I didn't decorate as much this year. But I am enjoying it just the same.As my friends say Jesus is the reason for the Season!
Here are some quick pictures of my world, hugs Cheri


Looking out my porch Christmas Eve
While watching the events of the San Bernardino shootings happening live on the 
T.V. this month Dee called me in shock at what was happening. It was so sad and senseless. When I saw her at her home last week she handed me the needle felt pin keep ornament. 

She simply said there was nothing she could do as she watched the T.V so she made the little heart and gave it to me when I saw her.It is a very special pin keep.

I have no idea what those words say on the plates

This is little Jack and my garden railroad

Little Jack always says Grandpa needs to share LOl!!

Boys and their toys but I admit I love trains too.

Peace on Earth

Christmas Holiday Tea at Dee the Woodcarvers home

Dee calls him her Farmer Santa

Come along with me to a time that feel so far away. A time where Life slows down and you feel like your in a very special place with a special lady.Sometimes you just need a cup of soothing tea and a trip to Dee's to quiet your soul.  Today we sat sipping on our tea laughing at my mishaps of this last month

Really I am not kidding it was that kind of month! Living in my eighty five year old house which was made to be a cabin can be really challenging. It seems like there is always something that needs to be done.Hubby was working away on the porch and a piece of wood he was tearing out flapped backwards and a screw punctured his leg. I saw that happening in slow motion. He is Ok but he had to actually sit down because he felt wobbly. He never feels squeamish but he thought he hit a artery. Then there was the propane leak while the plumber was installing a new pipe.It was a interesting month.Lol!

 Next dear Maulie my Shitzu got out of the house and opened the wooden gate.I have seen her push it with her paw when were getting in the car to go some where and but I had no idea she would do it if she got out of the house. The day that happened I thought someone had broken in. Since Maulie was the only thing missing I wondered if someone had taken her. She is so very cute you know.


That crazy little dog had gone over to the school yard where we walk her on weekends.  The kids took her to the office and she was in the office all day.  I picked her up at the Crest Elementary school. I aged a year that day!

                                                                  Lost Maulie at school

We had been working on the porch tearing down the deck so we were using the back door and I must not have locked it good enough. Now my current mishap yep I ran into hubby's truck while I was backing out of the driveway this last Saturday. I totally forgot he was home.  I have been a little scattered to say the least.
I even missed one of the rug hooking Christmas party because of all my projects at home. Talk about a frazzled me.So the thought of seeing Dee's home at Christmas was so inviting to me.I so needed to slow down.


 Dee and her beautiful home was my first holiday get together and it was so relaxing. We listened to some blue grass music that was so charming. It was called Pretty Flowers played by Steve Martin. Dolly Parton and Vince Gill sung this beautiful bluegrass song.The music radiated around her home with us quietly listening.

 Imagine your walking around her charming home your teacup in your hand .It's Christmas time and the small little cookies are yummy and were all chatting away about everything .Emily her kitty is outside wanting to come in. The tea kettle is singing away. Time for another cup of tea. Enjoy!
