Hi all. Thanks so much for all the prayers. I had a predisplanairy meeting this week. It was ruff but got thru it. Now I have been waiting for their answer. Been waiting 4 days so far. I have been trying to not eat the house out. We have 7 in. of snow today and if this next storm comes we may not have school tomorrow either. This is the first meeting for the first problem. I Still have a bigger one hanging in the back ground.

Thanks for all who are praying. I could not understand how something else could have happened with all of you praying but it did and I am trying to get thru it . They are going fast on this one. You girls are what I kept thinking about when I was in the meeting. I just kept saying all your names and remembering prayers were going up.

I have not got things out for Christmas. I am afraid new kitty will break every thing. I have put up a few things while she is asleep. She is in to everything but is keeping my mind busy chasing after her.

Hope all of you have a great Holiday season. I will let you know if something happens this week.

Hi windygap-just wanted to let you know I am doubling the sending of those cross country hugs to you. This all just has to work out okay for you.

Am glad you have your new kitten. It sounds like she is a fun, furry handful.

Just wanted to send good wishes your way, Windy. I hope you are hanging in there and doing o.k. You have many friends around the country, including me, who are thinking of you and praying for you.

Hey girls, First answer is in. Did not loose job or retirement Thank you God and all of my great friends. I just got 1 day with out pay. I can handle that. I got the lowest thing. Thanks girls for being there for me. I must be getting close to something God wants me to do because The devil is trying to hit me every way he can. He sure is trying to stop me but he aint going to win. He thinks I am by my self but I have great friends behind me.

We had 4 more in. of snow this morning. No school today. I went in but they sent us home. So I decided to start Christmas shopping. I went to the bank and got my Christmas funds and went shopping for 5 hours. I am off Thur. for my day so am taking kitty back to the doctor and then Sat. I have to go to get exam and new glasses so I am going to stop at a mall near there to finish my shopping if the next snow storm does not hit till I get back. If it does I may have to change my appt. that I have waited 3 months to get. I don't want to drive 40 miles on snow and ice.

I hope each and every one of you have a great Holiday season and that all of you loose great. I am doing ok. I am the lowest I have been in years so I am not going to complain about not looseing. With all I am going thru right now I am lucky I have not ate the roof off the house.

If any one is looking for a cute cd for Christmas Duck the Halls is good. I got it last week to cheer me up and it did. I thought it would be crazy but its real nice.

kitty woke me up at 2:30am this morning wanting lovein. She was snuggling my neck and face. I guess she new the snow had started at that point.

Thanks to each and every one of you. I love you all.

Judy, I'm so glad to hear that it turned out okay. Better than okay with your job and retirement safe. What a relief!

You have a great attitude about weight and losses during this time of year. And congratulations for keeping it in control during this stressful time! That is a big deal, lady!

Enjoy your day off and Christmas shopping!

Happy, Happy, Happy for your good news Judy. Will still keep sending those hugs, though. Good Christmas shopping wishes coming your way, too, and for safe driving conditions so you can make your eye doctor appointment.

Joni

So glad the news at work keeps getting better! You deserve good things coming your way!

Got to get some wrapping done this evening, and tomorrow Mom and I are going to a historic downtown area here locally that has some great antique shops, charming tea rooms and restaurants, and on weekends they have craft and food booths. And a little train for the kiddies, which is fun to watch. So maybe I can get my last-minute purchases done there. And maybe a nice, creamy cup of coffee to sip on as we walk around. UD YAY!

Sorry I have been off all week. Since last Wed. every thing has been crazy. I just got all my shopping done last weekend in one day. The cards are out. 1 batch of cookies are made and given out to all my kids. Now I have to put up the tree at the last min. due to 3 kittys in the house all chaseing each other. Then I Have to wrap all the items. Bakeing at last min too! Things are going to start getting crazy around here.

Oh Carol you day with your mom sounded so great. We have a couple of towns like that here too and I love going to them during the holidays. I love eating in a grand old Inn that is in the next town over at Christmas. The town is so pretty.

Well we have one more day then a 2 week vacation. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Grandmas House

When you are young and full of innocence, you believe that life will always remain the same. But as you grow older and experience trials and tribulations, you start to realize that nothing lasts forever. Always treasure the gifts that God has bestowed upon you.

The farm house stands there 40 years later, with broken windows, faded white wood trim falling onto the ground below, sagging wooden porches, screen doors barely holding on, and overgrown bushes engulfing the once open porch steps. The two enormous pine trees still stand proudly in the front yard, keeping their observations of the last one hundred years to themselves. The orchard that sits to the side of the house is so overgrown with vegetation, that it is now impossible to believe it could have ever been an open field with fruit bearing trees. Next to the orchard and to the rear of the house sits the outhouse, with the same stone steps marking the path to what was once a well used facility. The fence line that runs along side of the house is barely visible die to the weeds and the delicious concord grapes that grew there are now just a memory.

Stopping by your journal to say hello and to wish you a Merry Christmas.

We started family Christmas time today with son and daughter and their families at our son's house. Daughter in law cooked up a great brunch and we opened presents. We will head back home tomorrow and then spend Christmas Day at our daughter's. Fun to see the grandsons's excitement when they open presents. Husband is an elementary teacher, so he will be off work until after New Years, too.

I am still smiling for you and your happy news!

Merry Christmas!


Joni

The barnyard is still there in front of the house, an open area that expands from the road over to the gravel driveway that snakes up to the barns and garage. There are two very large barns. One barn, weathered gray was at one time the central hub of the farm's life. The other stately, more modern barn sitting directly behind the first, is hanging on to the last of it's red paint. The additional outbuildings: the corncrib, the chicken house, the hog feeder, are still standing and waiting for the chance to be vital again, as does the rest of the one hundred acres of farm land.

Merry Christmas, dear windy.

I was so interested to read about your farmland and the buildings there. That is a lot of property to take care of by yourself. Or do you have help with all that?

My husband and I are at the coast for the hols and enjoying the quiet winter peace here. Long walks on the beach, the beauty of ocean and sky, glorious sunrises and sunsets, feasting on seafood, a stack of good books which I'm working my way through...so much that fills me with joy.

I hope your Christmas will also be a joyful one.

Hi LolaGetz

Merry Christmas! The farm I am writeing about is my Grandmas farm or I should say was. It is now gone but my sister made a copy of this for all 19 cousins for Christmas about 10 years ago. This is the same farm house I told all about that had the ghost in it. I am missing my grandma and grandpa to day so I have been printing this story a little at a time. I will try to finish it this week. This is how the house right before they tore it down.

Your Christmas sounds so great. Beach and books you got it made in the shade girl. MerryChristmas to you and all who read this. I smell my ham got to go before it gets too done. Love to all!

This is the view that a casual observer would see if he or she were to come upon the old homestead. But that's not what I see. Standing here, with tears in my eyes, my memories start unfolding back to another time, one that I hold close to my heart.

Sitting in the back seat, next to my older sister, and barely able to look out of the car window, we were on our way to Grandma's and Grandpa's house to celebrate Grandpa's birthday and Father's Day. The trip that lasted not even a quarter of a mile down the road seemed long enough for me. My dad was at the wheel and my mom was holding a covered dish, as the car turned left and started down the gravel driveway. It then bends to the right in front of the barn and came to a stop in front of the garage. We were usually the first to arrive at holiday gatherings as er lived the closest, so I got to anxiously await my cousins arrival. There were 19 of us in all.

As we walked up the stone steps to the side porch, we could see Grandma in the kitchen starting to get her part of the lunch prepared, She was not too tall, nice and round, with white hair, beautiful blue eyes and a never endng smile. She had on her house dress and work apron. And again I tried to touch my hands together as I reached around her waist to give her a hug.

While I was getting my needed attention from Grandma, my sister Judy had already run into the living room an into the corner where my Grandpa was sitting in his wood rocking chair. Grandpa was tall and thin, dressed in work clothes and smoking a cigar. She jumped unto his lap to get in a quick visit before the others cousins showed up and Grandpa got grumpy because of all the noise.

Hi all and Happy New year to all. I am so glad you are all enjoying my sisters story. In case you did not figure it out I was the girl on grandpa's lap. I don't think any one set up there but me. Every one else thought he was mean? He just complained if they were too loud, HEHEHE!!!! They said I was grandpas pet and I think they were right. I hope I get this done soon. It is hard for me to type very long that is why it is takeing so long. They both died in the 70's and 80's so I have missed them a long time. They were in their late 60's when I was born. Thanks for putting up with me on this.
