…thoughts from my heart on my love for God, family and the care and decorating of our home

Friday, November 26, 2010


Check out my new blog background and header.  Isn’t it awesome?  Tammy from A Primitive Place ~ Tammy made it.  She has several backgrounds available, if you are interested.  Being new to blogging, and also being computer challenged, I was having trouble getting this beautiful background to work on my blog.  I emailed Tammy and she worked with me until it fit my blog – she also created the header for me, since I haven’t done any Christmas decorating yet and did not have a photo that looked good with her beautiful background.  Tammy, I can’t thank you enough for the time and talent you put into making my blog look great.

Now I need to get busy and get my decorating done so I can post some pictures.  Actually, I have been getting ready.  Earlier in the week I packed away all of the Fall decorations.  Wednesday was spent cooking and getting ready for Thanksgiving.  On Thursday we enjoyed a wonderful day at my parents home – all of our children and grandchildren were able to join us – and nothing makes this Mama’s heart happier than having all of her family together.  Today I cleaned house, bought and planted some poinsettias, and helped DH set up the big Nativity scene in the front yard – DH helped plant the poinsettias, made a primitive stable for our Nativity scene and one for our neighbor’s, and mowed the lawn.  Tomorrow is inside day – DH will set up the trees and check the lights for me while I am unpacking decorations; then I will be decorating the trees and working on the displays.  I feel very blessed to have a husband who helps me.

I hope each of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration and are enjoying your weekend.

With a Grateful Heart,

Sue...Isn't nice to know we aren't the only two people who need the book "Bloggers for Dummies". Thank you so much for your help with my header, it worked... you can actually see the title!! I am so grateful!! Finally after a year of blogging I have a picture and a real title! To be honest though I am just glad to be blogging again. I lost everything from my first blog..."There Is No Place Like Home". Who knows what happen? Thanks again for your wonderful help! LOVE THE BACKGROUND! Now we just need to help bettyj with that sidebar thing! HUGS and BLESSINGS!
