I am Still Here

I really have read most of your blogs and tried to comment on some. Its just a busy time for me. I have been making 2 and 3 trips to the post office each day to mail out soaps. Trying to get all the gifts wrapped and stockings stuffed for Christmas weekend starting this Friday. Trying to get things done around here and the animals taken care of. Miss Diva does not like to be ignored! I am trying to finish printing Christmas cards and I haven't even put a Christmas tree yet! I am so far behind but hope to get caught up after the weekend. Just think I will have lots of photos of hayrides, children, toys, and Megan opening her sesame street game in front of the fireplace to share with you when I get back! So forgive me for not posting much this week and I promise to be back full force Monday. Don't forget to post when you receive your swap stocking.

This is such a busy time for all of us...I'm also behind in visiting blogs but I only visit as time permits me:-) We'll eventually all get caught up!! hehe I still haven't received your stocking but I find the postal service between the States and Canada terrible! It must go around the world a couple of times first! lol I'll let you know as soon as it arrives:-)

Peg, don't rush yourself. Remember the season. Sit back and enjoy! Try and think of how much enjoyment your soaps bring to people when you are making them. (My brother, his wife and two girls LOVE Miss Diva's soap!--sure glad I ordered extra already!!) Tomorrow is my stocking day. I have all my "ingredients." Just need to do a little sewing and cross-stitching and filler-up! Can't wait to see how it turns out. You just never know what you vision--it never looks the same, does it! hehe. Blessings my friend during this wonderful Season. xoxo

Slow down lady!

(even though I was busy all day myself and here I am up at 4 am)

I will be mailing mine out at the deadline I'm afraid. I'm bad like that.
My kids saw the stuff I bought and begged several things off me.
So I need to go pick up a few more items.

I haven't visited in awhile Peggy - just been caught up with 'stuff' - I hope to be back on track now.
I am so sorry to hear about your uncle Bob xoxo I will light a candle for him on my Christmas altar.
I think I have my stocking! there are parcels galore to unpack here - I am so blessed - thankyou for organizing it.
I am just about to put my christmas soaps out in my foyer to give to lucky friends when they visit - and my pomegranate is just about finished so I must order some more soon - love and hugs always, Robyn xo

Peggy, I would not worry about it right now. It is busy for everyone and everyone knows that so do what you have to do. I will just keep checking back when I can too...Have a great weekend..Sandy
Oh did you read that we have lost our most precious cat!! Lucy went out Sunday night and just has not returned. We both have been just sick all week.

Tee said...

I love how seasonal it is in here :)

Glad to hear you're doing such good business with the soaps. I hope I eventually get to order some.

I can't imagine how busy you are this time of year - on top of your usual busy-ness! LOL.

Lee-ann said...

I just know the feeling, it is such a rush to do everything here at the moment and the simple pleasure of stopping and chatting with a friend over coffee gets pushed back a bit. I must correct that now.

I see Robyne may have her parcel from me that is good I hope her stocking has arrived I worry about the post at this time of the year.

Have a lovely evening Peggy.

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank
