Greetings my fellow bloggers and drop-by friends. I feel like a complete stranger here today as it has been such a loooonnnnggg time since I posted. I have been busy, busy, busy. My brother had to be situated in a different nursing home and it was a complete worry while trying to have him placed. You see, my brother has been blind from birth; my mother kept him with her until she was too old to care for him, so he went to a private home where the caregiver's husband became ill and my brother had to be moved. I'm telling you, our health system has lots of wrinkles to be ironed out. It is unbelievable that it can take so long to have a person placed in a nursing home. It was close to two months before it was finally done. Thankfully, he is settled and is content.

Take my advice on this one: Don't ever attempt to have your complete house uprooted before any Holidays. We decided to have our flooring was time after 26 years...and the only available time was on the 13th of the month. I have to say it is just today that I can say that things are put back into place...what didn't go in the garbage or is saved for the Good Will Center, that is... What havoc!!! There was furniture, etc...all over the place. My husband has about five hundred books, no kidding, that had to be boxed and taken to the basement and then brought back to be packed on the bookshelves again..My poor back!!! It was just yesterday morning that I did my tree and believe me, AGAIN this year, if there were a contest for the ugliest tree, I would get it...I have no baking done and am about to attempt that after this post...

I want to wish each and every one of you "A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY, HEALTHY NEW YEAR".

I have to make a resolution concerning my blog again this year. Apparently, the last year's one didn't work..

Take care everyone and enjoy family time..that is the most important of all....


  1. Merry Christmas Anne. I bet your tree isn't that bad!
    Have a wonderful holiday.

  2. Merry Christmas Anne and Family;

    Glad to hear you are alright!

  3. Merry Christmas to you and your family....I noticed you didn't mention Hooking in this entry LOL....busy girl. Hope your brother is settling and likes the new place. Major adjustment for sure...and as for the renovations before come everyone tries to accomplish such large tasks before the Jolly Guy gets here....
    Looking forward to seeing you in the New Year!!

    I am going to be doing lots of Hooking in the next week....waiting for the image to enter my head LOL..

  4. Hi Anne,
    I'm a little behind myself! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas day.
    I know what it is like to have your house torn apart. It doesn't matter when it is ... It STINKS!
    Stay warm ... pretty soon it will be lambing season.
