If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work? I would ask them to help me with yard work. I have seem where people have helped with cleaning and they would throw things away that were valuable to the other person. Unless they were cleaning a kitchen or bathroom you could not get into trouble in those two areas. So yard work would be my choice.
If you were to move and your home came fully furnished with everything you ever wanted, list at least three things from your old house you wish to retain? I would take my pillow because it supports my neck when I am sleeping, I would take special knickknacks that family members have given me over the years. I would take my family history and any books pertaining to family members that are not replaceable.
My husband has been after me to downsize. I am having a hard time with this. Recently I have decided to sell my mat cutter and give all my mats away along with it. I have girl friend that lives about and hour and half from me. We don’t seem to get together. But recently she was interested in how I blocked needlework. I did this for a business for about 6 years until I got married and moved away from this area. I was pleased that someone actually wanted some knowledge that I had and was glad to share it with her. So she wants to cut mats, she wants to know how to cut down a frame, and how to put a frame together. We are going to get together I guess after Christmas. I am just pleased that someone is interested in my hobby and appreciates my talents.
What calms you down? Talking it over with someone else on the phone.
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? I love Christmas time, and my birthday is in December too. I love wrapping presents. I love making cards, but my husband and I visited so many 2nd hand stores lately he kept finding really good deals on Christmas cards that I am using them this year. Maybe I will get an earlier start and make my own for next year. I have enjoyed making and creating gift wrapping ideas.
I made Christmas cookies, my favorite cut outs are mittens and tree lights. I used a paint brush to put my icing on. I was trying to figure out how others decorated cookies my coworker mention using piping bag. I used Whole wheat cookie recipe and icing from this website: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/67905906857636137/
I found this cute game at a 2nd hand store over the weekend. My granddaughter loves to jump on the bed so this game will be right up her alley. I can’t wait to play this game with her after Christmas.. The box had a small bing where it opens up, but I only paid $2.00 for it. Amazon has it for 17.99 plus 5.99 shipping.
I bought some candles at Menards last week, the box had 3 graduating sizes for $4.99. They were flameless candles lights with remote control and had were colored lights. I wanted mine to be plain so kept them that way. I went back and bought another box to make present for one of my friends as well. I found three free clip art pictures: of manger with Joseph and Mary; one with 3 wise men silhouettes on camels; and shepherds in the field with the star. I modge podge them to the three candle. Then when the light is turned on it is glowing behind my three scenes I put on there. I got the idea on Pinterest.
I was helping patron as she had email on the cloud. She was wanting to download it was weird way of doing it. But i finally figured it out. I told her i was thankful to help her because then if someone else came along i would know how to help them. Suddenly she brighten up. The other thing she wanted to get to these particular emails but she had a lot of junk so i showed her how to make folder snd how to move certain ones into it.She was excited that she learned to do this. I told her if she coukd not remember i would show her again. She seemed to need a hug and i told her i would keep her in my prayers. She knew prayers were answered. She left with a lighter step and thanked me for assisting her.
I am excited to spend time with my granddaughter and family this year. Life is certainly speeding by. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to every one.
