Dab of This and That

When they are just learning to pull up and walk, we cheer them on with words of encouragement like " big girl - you can do it", and when they take a step or two - you clap and cheer for them. Thennnnnn.........When they go after everything in sight, and you move like you have not moved in years to retrieve a breakable object she proudly holds up with a great big smile as if to say "lookie what I found". Not to mention she has that great big smile, because she was proud she was able to get out of your sight, open the cabinet and clear its' contents in record breaking time.

It has been a very busy, and enjoyable weekend. We had our main holiday get together with lots of good food, good company and some very nice gifts exchanged. It all came and went so fast. Spent this morning swiffering up the crumbs, wiping itty bitty finger prints off the glass doors, etc., etc. I had all these plans to do lots of finger foods for the event, but somewhere that idea went by the wayside, but it was all good. Now I need to work the carbs off.

Welcome to my "New Readers" (followers): With other things going on I have not paid enough attention to my "Readers" (followers) list in a while. My apology!!!! Looks like I have some new readers - Welcome !! Will tell you what I tell everyone else - I tend to ramble some times, so hope I don't get to boring for you.
I did notice that I have lost a few also. Must have gotten to boring for them.

Thank You: I really did some "slacking" when it came to decorating for holidays the last year. So just wanted to say "Thank You" to everyone that has shared their holiday decorations with us all. I have thoroughly enjoyed visiting around "the land of blog" and seeing all the beautiful trees, wreaths, etc. Lots of talented, creative people out there.

Memories: While working on jewelry recently and the tv was on, but not really paying attention to what was on. Then heard a familiar song from the 60's on a PBS program. It was a concert, songs from the 60's, and the songs were sung by the original artists. Wow! Have we changed!!!! Thank goodness for hair color - I see I am not the only one that uses the stuff !!!! :-D We really had a lot of great music back then ! Makes me want to get up and dance like I use to - Oooops! Never mind! I forgot - I can't move like that anymore ! :-D

:-((( While I am sitting here typing this post, the yard crew came thru and blew a bunch of leaves into my courtyard. After I spent all that time cleaning them out a couple of days ago ! :-(((
Closing this post, before I start typing what I am thinking right now !! @!!?&%$@ :-(

Just another Dab of This and That.
Have a great week !!

Oh how I love this post, Glenda! Everything about it!

When Xanti was about a year old, I took care of her while her mommy worked, for about a year, before they moved south. Well...I was on the go all the time. If I could not get close to her quick enough I would snap my fingers. It wasn't long until she was snapping her fingers right back. When I ask her, today, who taught her to snap her fingers she always says G'ma.LOL...Great memory!

Merry Christmas!

I'm just sitting here laughing, imagining you running like a wild woman, and all out of breath, lol. I know you had a good time with your loved ones. Seems like just yesterday I was reading about you swiffering up crumbs from the holiday. Surely that wasn't last year, was it? My how time flies as we age :(
Merry Christmas!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

I'm sure she's been such a sweetheart and as nice as can be all year long! Sounds like you had a real nice get together with everyone.
I think I'd be saying the same thing you're thinking. Hang in there:-)

She is soo cute Glenda! And boy do I know how you feel! My hubby had to get Addison off of the kitchen table yesterday, she's already figured out how to climb right up on it.
Hope I make it through,
Glad you all had a great time!

So glad that you had a wonderful time with your family. this reminds me of a story my Mum told me.

When I was little I was eating a Sugar Daddy and layid it on our coffee table. She yelled at me and my Gram said that someday she would wish that she had a sugar daddy stuck to the table. She was so right, time goes by too quickly - enjoy swiffering the aftermath:)
