Earth Turning Faster? This Wonderful Season Is Almost Over!

Happy New Year!

Can you believe the Holiday season is almost over and I have not blogged since early December?.  Where did time go?  Someone please inform me.  Have I been Clowning around trying to hold weights that I should have just let go and concentrated on my blog and the finer things of life?

When I started this blog almost a year ago I had huge hopes such as, by this time of year I was going to have at least 5,037 followers and 3,049 comments. 

 My vision of having a love affair with my blog and followers because I had so much to inform you of from dollhouse miniatures, tutorials on everything including exercise, sex, death, cooking, love, marriage, babies, recipes and my vision was to make it fun and exciting to everyone to the point of jumping out of bed every morning, writing new blogs, reading my comments, responding to all.  And of course, hiring my own staff to present to me new ideas for everything under the sun that may be interesting to everyone from ages one to 111 (or more) from here to eternity was the ultimate vision. 

 Readers were going to be sharing my blog with everyone.  What a vision! 

My plan for 2012 is to put on a new pair of shoes, stop clowning around and start from the beginning to see if I can make this blog more of what I envisioned.  When love affairs do not meet our expections, somehow, we must try again and try to make it.

Thanks to all of you following my blog and thanks to you readers who have stuck with me from the beginning!  But, do you really care that I rode a bicycle down the street today for the time in forty years?  Or walked six miles yesterday?  Or had one of the most beautiful Christmas Season I've ever had?

Thanksgiving, December, Christmas, Friends and Family!

When we returned home from our second trip we were so thrilled to have our grandsons visit for a week.  In the picture to the right we are on a beautiful walkway near our home looking for bugs for our five year old grandson along with our two year old grandson.   It was one of the most beautiful days.  Fall is absolutely gorgeous. Changing colors of the leaves is amazing.  Oh my!  My!

Happy to be back walking and blogging again.  I've traveled over eight thousand miles by car during the last two months and there is nothing like home sweet home.  Although it was great to visit family and friends, it was not a happy occasion.  I took a lot of time creating and making dresses while my husband drove.  He drove during the day and we spent night in hotels.  The hotels were perfect for creating an instant workshop.  It was fun.

We were back from our trip in time to Celebrate Thanksgiving with family.  My favorite daughter and son did a great job preparing all the delicious food including homemade every thing;  turkey and stuffing with all the trimmings, cakes, pies and lots of love.  Didn't know my favorite daughter could make a pecan pie like the one below.  Beautiful and double delicious.  The Hot Water Corn Bread was a blast from the past.  Want some of these yum yum recipes?

Hope everyone had a wonderful and Blessed Thanksgivingwith many more wonderful years to come.

Now, after enjoying all the great foods, we needed to somehow work it off.  So we talked a lot, walked back and forth to the food table a lot and had lots of fun.  The next day I made mini dresses and went for a long walk.  Good health is at the top of my list as I celebrate living this Christmas Holiday Season, but I must have chocolate this and chocolate that.  I love candid yams and must have them too.  I'll do every thing  I can to be safe with my weight and issues.  Exercise, exercise and exercise is the key.  Hope I don't loose the key like I do with my car keys.  Let's try to stay focused and stay slim.  These cute dress will look great on you at the New Year's party.

Thanks to all of you for reading my blog.  Sorry I had to go away and now that I'm back I hope to bring you lots of pictures and inspiration to enjoy your life and celebrate living the best you can with what you have.  May God continue to Bless all of you.
