I am trying not to be in a funk over the storm messing up all my Christmas Open House plans....I am so looking forward to redoing the store and celebrating this new season of JOY! My friend in Colorado has used the word JOY in alot of her decorating - I am going to copy her....it is a happy word. Our Christmas motto has always been "the Comfort of Olde, the Joy of New"....so this year I am going to spread lots of JOY around!! (thanks for the inspiration Lauri)!!
On another note - today is my son's 40th birthday...that makes me old doesn't it???!! We are going to celebrate with a whole "shabang" of family and friends tonight...where does the time go???
I finally got a "brainstorm" on what to do outside on the back porch for Christmas decorations....seemed nothing was falling in place (but it always does - except for dang Sandy)...I am excited to see how it turns out but that will have to be last minute if we get horrid winds. (sigh...seems I do alot of sighing lately)
Last Halloween...I hope everyone is safe thru this storm....no one loses power....and best case scenerio is Sandy "fizzles" right before our eyes...!!!
