I live near the beach.....

You wouldn't believe it by the snow photos.... I don't know what made me look out the window at 1:30am but I did and I couldn't believe how it was snowing... we usually get snow and it will last for about a day and a half. We have had snow since Sunday and now it is really coming down again. I must tell you that it does make my heart sing... I love love love it.

These are taken at night so they aren't the greatest and I lightened the snow ones so you could see them better.

The first one was around 5:30pm before I left for bunco... and the snow ones were like I said at 1:30am I am hoping that the roads will be drivable later so that I can take some photos by the beach.

Festival of Trees

We went to the Festival of Trees.. it is an event/auction that is put on by our local hospital to raise money for large items that they need. Last year we didn't go because the storm we had knocked the power out of the whole city for 6 days, and we couldn't go on the date that it was rescheduled because we had another engagement. Needless to say the auction this year is to buy a emergency generator for the North Coast Clinic.

It is always a lot of fun and the trees are beautiful... they have a silent auction on wonderful gifts and wreaths... then a beautiful dinner and then a live auction for the decorated trees and of course it is never just a tree, many of them come with extras such as dinners and gift certificates, also nights in resorts etc... you can spend a lot or a little and then at the end of the night you can buy the center piece on the tables.

I really did have a good time seeing people I had not seen for a very long time, my favorite artist Jeffrey Hull and his wife were special guests because one of his pieces was being auctioned off, it was awesome to see how much it went for.

Have a great Week... I think I am finally getting into the Christmas spirit.

For this beautiful day... it is sunny and I can see the ocean.

update.... sunset that evening...

I really am still around...

Thank you to everyone that has let me know they are still praying... Thank you so much for my friend Barb... whom always checks up on me and always has such sweet things to say to help me get through rough times.

Thanksgiving was quiet.. I truly loved and enjoyed my son and his family being here there is still every once in a while the sadness would sneak in and grab me.. thank GOD those boys are so funny and would get me out of it. I know it will take time but I do know I am being carried through it even when I feel overwhelmed with grief.

I love this photo.. I did not take many.. but this one makes me smile.. his daddy use to do the very same thing when he was his age.

My sweet little grandsons blessed there grandma with a virus they had... I am fighting it and Robert is taking very good care of me. As soon as I can get past the headache and sore throat I am going to start working on a rag quilt for a Christmas gift.. I have never made one before so wish me luck *grin* This is a link to the website that I got the idea from. Kevin & Amanda I will post pictures when I get it done.
