Wayne and I took down our outdoor lights and yard decorations. It took several hours to put it all out but only 25 minutes to bring it all down!

It looks so sad outside and will be dark tonight. =(

It's okay, it will all be out there again soon!

I agree Jennifer !!! I am very afraid of the wind - Heck I am afraid of almost everything xo

Oh Seawaters !!! This petrifies me just reading about it ! xo

I haven't made any progress on my calendar because I got sidetracked by free book downloads on FB. Then I had to update my Shelfari status - I only read 107 books last year, down from 111 the year before. I blame it on Stephen King's Under the Dome - took me almost two weeks to get through that one with it's 1000 pages plus, most of which was rather slow-going. I am currently reading Debbie Macomber's When Christmas Comes, which is the basis of her latest Hallmark movie. Good book!

I need to get working on my calendar. Have a MERRY day!!!!!!!!!!
I hope to read more books this year. I LOVE reading ! xo

I was rushing home to wash my hair and take a shower before heading to the hospital!!!
Oh My !!! I hope you made it !! xo

Dear God,



my prayer for 2012 is for

Please don't mix these up like you did last year.

AMEN!



I love this !!! xo
