Preparing the Way
After a wonderful family visit last week where I was happily with all my children, I'm back once again at home (home sweet home) and I have been vigilantly working through my tasks and errands. Monday and Tuesday were a blur of playing catch up after being out of town.
Also, after ignoring sinus issues for more than two weeks, I contacted my doctor and started some antibiotics. I must say, I love that I truly believe I can kick a virus with a compromised immune system. That proves that I am a "glass half full" kind of gal.
My house is decorated and today I have a few photos to share. I love the season of Advent and the preparing my home for company and preparing my heart for reflections of peace and love during this season.
I bought the above flicker candles during my holiday visit and they are fantastic. I love that they are battery operated and yet look real to me. Every night, I am filled with joy just looking at them, you should buy some! (mine are from JoAnn Fabrics..not sure the brand).
See that coffee maker? That is the best coffee maker ever. I am now on my third edition. The first one lasted five years, the second one lasted 10 years and died on Sunday morning, thank goodness we have a Keurig as well and I had my coffee. I love coffee in a carafe and my husband loves a quick cup in the evening during the news. So we have two....crazy right?
I love this coffee maker because I can program the machine to stay on for FOUR hours. Most of the others have an automatic shut off after two hours, that is not for me.
Each morning after my journaling and praying, I am crafting a list for what I want to get done. As you know, I'm motivated by seeing tasks and crossing them off once completed.
These pretty note cards arrived earlier this week - I bought them from a dear on-line friend, Grace. Her blog is beautiful and she has started an etsy shop. Feel free to hop over and take a peek at her beautiful artwork!
The winner to the Lottie Bonnet Giveaway is ELAINE. Congrats, Elaine! I will contact you and Lisa through email today.
