Not a very merry Christmas

We all are sick. What ever this cold is it is terrible.  I never had so much symptoms in one cold.  Fevers, coughing, congestion, pain, eye trouble and they rotate in severity and then you think you are feeling better and wham...you are struck down again.  I am hoping by the New Year I will be better.  We had to cancel some holiday visits because we don't want to spread this around. 

I will keep updates. I plan on resting as much as possible to get better faster.

Wednesday....Christmas Eve

No post yesterday....sick...sicky sick....super sicky sick. Not just my son but me and the grandparents as well.  I did not want to move at all yesterday but had to go to the pharmacy for supplies.  I am a bit better today but exhausted.  We have family in today, off to visit family on Friday and then again on Monday so I won't be posting until Tuesday Dec 30th.

I will have more bathroom pictures then.  I am just out of it right now.  But I do have my last holiday image I did for Zazzle today!  I do not know how I timed it so perfect!

Monday - 3 days to Xmas!

Wow, and I have lots of cookies yet to bake.  Guess what...my back is injured.  I do not know how but it hurts so bad, can't sit, stand or lay down without pain.  I have to help with the school holiday party today so I will grin and bear it.  Guess what else....my son is sick. He had fevers over the weekend.  I am going to check and if okay he will go to school and I will take him home as soon as the party is over, or he will stay home with grandpa while I go in and work on the party.  It rains it pours!  I hope to get one set of cookies done today or tomorrow will be a super baking day.  My son will have tomorrow off and won't be back to school until after the New year.

Below are four pictures of the bathroom during and after painting and added some lights!

I do have two more holiday images left to showcase and here is one of them.

My math is not so good.

It was 7 days to Christmas yesterday and 6 days left today!  Better get my math straight.
Got the chocolate chip cookies done yesterday.  Going to the school today to volunteer. Lots of stuff going on this weekend, finishing cookies and more things to prepare for the holidays!  Have a great weekend!

8 days to Christmas!

Coming fast, found some presents I didn't wrap yet....that is on the agenda today! Chocolate Chip Cookies tomorrow.  I am at the school on Friday and then more cookies, final wrapping and prepping for another day at the school on Monday.  Now the storm for the weekend has fizzled but they are expecting a wintry mix on Monday...no!  I hope it holds off and we can have our little Holiday party!  I guess tomorrow we will have a clearer picture of what is to come from the weatherman!

More bathroom pics ahead...
This was the hardest part, putting on the joint compound.

Floor is getting prepped for tile.

We had some interesting angles to work on!

A bit blurry but you can see all the work done!
I will post the next series tomorrow! Wait till you see the final product.

I have a vintage image I just love, love, love today!

I almost forgot about the bathroom!

Shame on me!  Here is some starting photos and I will show more tomorrow and the next day etc.

We started with a room of just studs.  Had a plumber come in and rough out the drains and water supplies and we took over from there.

Just the studs!
Working our way with the wall board

I cut the medicine cabinet hole!

Almost around the room

Looking good!
Another set of pics tomorrow to show all the work my father and I did!  It was fun.  IT looks Amazing!  Stay tuned to see it finished!!

Ok I have a fun image to show today.

Getting stressed?

I know I have time to finish what I need before Christmas but still feel like I am behind!  Think it is because I have items left out for wrapping, decorating and shipping and I like things put away.  Feels unfinished.

Today I am running some errands and more wrapping.  Most everything is wrapped, just some items that are coming in now. I think chocolate chip cookies will be started this week too. 

Raining today, possible snow storm Sunday....I am working on a party for school next Monday.  I hope the weather stays okay so we can give something special for the kids before the holiday break.

Yesterday was a snowman so today is a...

Trying to finish stuff today

Hoping to finish decorating, wrapping most of the presents left and then some shopping for final items during the week.  I have cookies to bake, volunteering at the school for a few days and what ever else pops up!  Keeping me busy.  Will be nice to enjoy the holidays once the rush is done.

Zazzle has been doing nicely.  I like seeing that.  Wish it kept up like that all year.  That will be a goal for next year!

I am stuffed...ate too much over the weekend.  I figure that is what January 2nd is for....back to regular eating and getting myself back in shape.  I am not as bad as last year.  Had surgery last year and gained a lot of weight after that.  Lost it once I had recovered.  Just going to enjoy the rest of the year, keep my normal exercise routine and when January hits I will be fine.

Today I have more holiday images!

Finally Friday.

I have such a headache. I am volunteering in the school this afternoon so I hope I can get a handle on it.  Hope it doesn't go migraine on me.  I get them once in a great while, sort of feels like it.  Blah.  Still didn't get my list of ingredients together for cookies. Will do over the weekend!

I am off to tend to headache, have a great weekend and see you Monday!

Today is very nice vintage holiday card.

Where the weather reports wrong or what!

There was school yesterday!  That is great because they have some neat craft projects planned this week for the kids.  I am late posting, cleaning off snow and there is a delayed start to school so my son wanted to play in the snow for awhile.  I am now trying to warm up.  BRRR.  We only got about 4 inches, not much for here.  We might get a bit more tonight but that is iffy.

I want to finish my wrapping, I have a package to mail out and get my recipes together for cookies. I think I won't be doing anything new on Zazzle until after the holidays.  I really have a full schedule coming up.

Today I have something original.

Holly and Mistletoe

No school yesterday, bet no school today!

We did laundry yesterday, wrapped 90% of our gifts for Christmas.  I made chili and corn bread.  I am super duper exhausted.  Our poor kitty did not feel well last night.  She has a fickle stomach and something she ate did not agree with her.  I was tending to her most of the night.  We are supposed to get snow, or maybe not or maybe ice or maybe not.  Since my son has afternoon kindergarten I won't be sure if he has school until close to bus time.  If the school lets out early he doesn't have class. If it is a delayed start he has a very short day at school.  I am supposed to go into school today to help with some packing of donations.  That is also up in the air.  I will be in school Friday as well.

I do have another image to show!

We are in for some nasty weather.  I was so rushed yesterday I almost forgot to post.  It is tough this time of year to really sit and work on artwork.  I am sure my son will not be going to school today.  Tomorrow, if there is school, I will be going in to help out.  I will also be in school this Friday as well.  Lots of holiday prep going on.  Next week is cookie baking time.  Christmas is coming fast!

So today I have winter image...

Running out the door now. Got to get my son to the dentist! Late!! Must be all the snow that is coming.  Or just over tired! Bye, be back tomorrow!

Friday, December 5, 2014

Oh wow, it's Friday!

I can't believe how fast the week went. I have a bunch of errands to run today, last dentist appointment for my son on Monday and have more year end items to tie up next week. I managed to get a new design posted to Zazzle yesterday between appointments.  It was a miracle to finally get something on Zazzle!

Have had a headache since yesterday and trying not to let it get to me.  Keep on moving! I am done Christmas shopping, just have to wrap.  Just about done decorating.  Some more snowflakes to cut out.  Cookies in about a week and a half will be started.  The holiday is upon us!

Today I have...

Hard getting back in the swing of things.

Well I did try to get some Zazzle done yesterday.  Didn't quite work out that way.  Today I have an appointment early for my son's check up so that leaves the afternoon for a short bit before I have another appointment to rush to which always runs long and late.  Zazzle I miss you. I promise I will be back!!

My formatting is going all wacky with this post so I apologize for the strange setup. 

More Christmas to show you -

Holiday Extended!

Well I had all intention of working on Zazzle yesterday but after I got back from my errands I got a text that school was letting out early because of the weather.  Since my son goes to afternoon kindergarten he had the whole day off so we were decorating for Christmas all day. Just about done!

Today I will do at least one thing on Zazzle today.  I bet it has changed since my last upload so I will be learning new things.

Quick post...

Had planned on doing my errands this afternoon but we have some nasty weather coming in for that time so I will rush and get my errands done this morning.  Hopefully I can do some artwork today!  It is on the docket and am looking forward to it. Off to eat and run!!

Remember when I said I needed to rest

Well that didn't happen.  It has been a mad house all weekend,  in a good way.
Today we are having a surprise party for my niece.  Cake! I have eaten way too much over the holiday. I'll lose the weight just in time for Christmas and start all over again!
No showcase today,  be back to normal tomorrow. I sold a ton over the weekend! Very excited and hope those who purchased items enjoy them!
