New Stuff

Over the next few days I'll be trying out new fonts and colors for the "new" look of my blog. I do love the color pink, and I love God so this template seemed to work in those ways. My next fav color is purple, so I'm trying to get some of that in there also.

Now is also the time for some to make those yearly resolutions. What about you? Are you a resolution type person?

I normally don't make resolutions. Too easy to break. Then we're wondering if we can commit to anything. This year, though, I am setting a few goals (just a different way of saying resolution) and am going to try and tackle something I"m not thrilled about doing.


I'm not an exercise type person. The word makes me cringe. But I have to get some cardio and toning happening. I found a routine online that looks like something I can handle. So, Saturday I'm going to start trying to implement this routine into my mornings. I'm starting Saturday because it's going to take me a while to get the hang of these exercises.

Oh, no. Tomorrow is Saturday! Yikes. It is!

Okay. Blogger promise. I will post tomorrow how my first morning of exercise went. (or didn't)

What about you? Anything new you are planning on incorporating for the new year?

New Year--New Look

It's almost 2008 and I decided to have a new look for my blog. I hope it's easy to read. You'll have to bear with me for a few days as I get all my stuff added back on, my links and all that jazz.

Let me know what you think!!

Hope to have this finished by the end of the year.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all!

Have a very blessed day---Happy Birthday Jesus!


It's been a few days since I've blogged. What does it take at this time of the year to get me back in the swing?
Something free. Yes free. That's a great word to use at Christmas time, considering everytime you go into a store you're pulling out that credit card, handing out cash, or writing a check.
So this is free.

What is IT? you ask. A class on blogging. I found out I really do enjoy blogging so why not reap the rewards.

I'm evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology. For a while, they're letting you snag it for free if you post about it on your blog.

It covers:

  • The best blogging techniques.
  • How to get traffic to your blog.
  • How to turn your blog into money.

I'll let you know what I think once I've had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it's still free.

It's a great time of the year to start something. After all, it's almost New Years Day. 2008 is right around the corner.

Do you have something planned for the New Year?

Weather or not?

I've been living in Georgia since 1976. Seems like we used to have seasons, but maybe I was young and doing whatever and just didn't pay attention.
Now it seems like the heat of summer turns into the cold of winter which in turn turns into the heat of summer.
Only right now the heat of summer is happening in December. We are breaking records everyday this week. High 70's. Beautiful, sunny and dry. We need cold, rainy and wet. We are in a severe drought, our water restrictions are in place and there's no washing your car in your driveway, that's for sure.
They say that by this weekend on Sunday the low will be in the 20's and the high in the 40's. More like our normal weather in December.
But for the next couple of days, I'll be enjoying this burst of summer in December.
HOw about you? Where do you live and how's your weather treating you?

Prayer Today--Here and on F.A.I.T.H.

Please pray today at 3:30 for Kristy Dykes. Click here to read the whole story.
Please click! It's important!!

Bunches of stuff

Okay, as my cuz pointed out in the comment section I have not been posting regularly this week. It's true--she's right. But--well there are no excuses are there? I've had time to do other things, so I could have jotted something down here and there--one day or another, huh?

I'll preview a little of my post tomorrow. Kristy Dykes husband is asking for world-wide prayer for her at 3:30 Monday afternoon as she goes for her first radiation treatment. I'll have that post tomorrow.

On a lighter note, we have our granddaughter with us today and tomorrow. Such a joy to have around. She's talking up a storm and making us laugh really hard with her cute sayings. She turned two in August and seems to be a very bright, fun, happy little girl.

My cuz's niece (which I'm not sure what Marisa is to me? My second niece once removed twice over and three times under?) Marisa had a baby girl last week. From reading the paragraph above Marisa and Jim are in for a lot of fun in the next couple of years. I know she will be a joy. Here is a very cute picture of Kenzi.

What a better way to end a post than with a cute picture!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Head on over to F.A.I.T.H. to find out about the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

Home By Christmas

Today begins Home By Christmas, an old fashioned Christmas story written by thirteen different authors. Between now and December 23rd I'll post a continuing section of the short story each week. The first installment is by Author Louise M. Gouge. You can check it out at its dedicated blog at Home By Christmas.

I know you will enjoy this story.

A Shopping We Will Go

My husband and I live close to the mountains. There are great little mountain towns and lots of shops where you can find different and unique things. We spend one Saturday a month going Christmas shopping in Blue Ridge, Georgia. The drive is nice, and we usually find quite a few gifts. Ones that you don't find in every store.

So today is the day. It's supposed to be nice here, high 60's, low 70's. I'm sure there will be a cool breeze, but it looks to be a great day for our shopping spree.
We really look forward to doing this together. We have lots of fun and get something accomplished in the process. And it's good for me because I"m not really a shopper. I'd rather be home reading or writing instead of getting out amongst the crowds.

Where do you fall on the shopping meter? Love it? Hate it? Somewhere in between?
