Opps, I have been so bogged down in Christmas stuff, that I forgot to post the book winners…The winner of the Fall Book is
 and Shirley at SHIRLEY C’S
  is the winner of Sandi Patty's book.  Be sure and stop by and visit their blogs.
This has been the week of the crud.  I am on a Zpak and hope to knock mine out before getting really sick.
I have a weekend of little's.  Amanda and Micah are getting a rare three day trip to Baton Rouge to the LSU game. 
I still do not have the FALL wreath made..All the stuff is right where it was when I posted last…just waiting to be put on a grapevine wreath.  And the sad thing is it would take me less than 30 minutes to put it together..
THAT is CALLED PROCRASTINATION.  And I am not sure it is listed in any book, but I think procrastination should be listed as a symptom of menopause, AKA, the inability to stay focused.  All I know is this is not something I had before.  In days past I could make a “to do” list and mark off everything on the list, normally that day…THOSE days are gone. 
for example, four people have won ornaments and I  probably have 2,000 new ornaments in my house and in my shop…I even have the labels ready to mail them…It is the packing them that I have not gotten done. IF you were a winner, they are coming.  I may have already shared this on the blog, and am too lazy to go back and look, but we keep all the HOLDAY stuff at a storage building close to our house.  So I ask Jack to bring 20 boxes at a time…I am talking these are heavy LARGE storage boxes…the first twenty All loaded into my shop…and guess what ?  They were all labeled Teresa’s Trees.  UGH….He thought I had labeled all the boxes that to keep them from getting mixed in with winter clothes (which we may never need). These boxes were all my personal stuff…my prized ornaments.    So I unpacked them and if I had a tree up, I would have just decorated it, Instead all of that is stuffed under beds.  So now we are down to 5 boxes out 100 plus…and you cannot walk in my shop.
This is turning into my normal random post.  It is because my mind wonders so randomly…In 60 seconds, I can be thinking about a particular tree, a friend that has been out of work for months, to the kitchen floor needing to be mopped. 
I did want to tell you about a good friends Etsy shop.  Kelly is the daughter-in-law of one of my long time friends and so ARTSY herself. 
Her shop is
I will be back the end of the week, with some cute pictures of my weekend with little men.  My favorite kind of weekend.  Woody now has a Buzz outfit, compliments of Grammy, so not sure who you will see.  He changes often. 
This has not started out as the kind of football season I was hoping for.  If any of you think you would make a good receiver and would be willing to relocate to Minnesota, catch passes from a really cute guy, I think it might be worth looking into.  Its a high paying job and at this point you could probably name your price. And height would be a PLUS. 
A new look is coming to the Holiday Blog soon.

Teresa, I get side-tracked, too, when I'm at home. It's nice to have friends going through the same thing because we can laugh about it together. :)
Also, I love Beth Moore too. Have done many of her studies and wish I could do all of them. I always grow spiritually!

Oh wow! I am so excited to read that book. Thanks so much.
Don't feel bad about going in circles. It's called having too much to and too little time.
I hope you feel better soon!

I hope you are feeling better soon. I had that crud for a while, still lingering on. I never went to the Dr....mine was viral crud. We all get side tracked....that is a thing called life.

Vicki said...

Oh my goodness, I won something! Thank you so much. I enjoy reading your blogs and I'm especially excited about your holiday blog as we approach Christmas. Thanks again, Teresa, you made my day!

Kat said...

Congrats to the winners.

I'm so sorry you've been feeling bad. I hope you're all better by the weekend so you can enjoy the littles.

Feel better soon! How exciting that the weekend will be spent with the littles.

Congratulations to the winners!

The crud is making its rounds here, too. My Fred has been down it it for three weeks - every time I need him to do something. However, come football game time, he's up and snacking and cheering his team on!

Oh sweetie, I hate to hear your under the weather. I keep a product on hand (it's in a dropper bottle) that I start at the first sign of anything and it usually nips it in the bud. Ex. I got up with a sore throat, nose etc, took it that morn and in three day had not one symptom. Hubby fought the stuff for weeks....made a believer out of me. It's called Advantage and you can find it at the Health Food Store. If I really want to double whammy it I take Zicam too.

Congratulation to the winner, she's gonna enjoy this book!

Take care and I know in the decoration business things are gonna stack up before they are turned into beauties.

God bless ya sweetie!!!
