Here it is Christmas Eve and we're all getting ready for the big day tomorrow and I'm sitting here enjoying some wonderful Christmas movies. I absolutely love the channel TCM because it always has some great "old" movies on that I use to enjoy with my Mother. She loved movie stars and there was always those old magazines laying around like Photoplay and such. Till this day I can name a host of old stars cut I can't remember what I ate last week. LOL So I got to thinking of Christmas movies and the ones I love the most. Here's my list and see how it compares to yours.
1. White Christmas
2. It Happened on 5th Avenue
3.It's a Wonderful Life
4. Love Actually
5. The Nightmare Before Christmas
6. Meet Me in St. Louis
7. The Bishops Wife (1947)
8. While You Were Sleeping
9. Shop Around the Corner (1940)
10. A Christmas Carol (1984)
I think my list has some of the newer ones like Love Actually but my favorites are the old black and white movies. This is something my hubby and I do not agree on. He hates black and white movies and says I was born in the wrong decade. Maybe so.....who knows.
As I type this is 56 degrees outside and I think that's about as cold as it will get. I envy the ones who get to have snow on Christmas.
As far as carols go I love the old ones we sing in church that sing about the Glory of God. Although I found out something the other day and that's that Mike Rowe of the show Dirty Jobs can sing opera and has a marvelous voice. He and John Rich wrote a song about Santa having a dirty job. If you haven't heard it, here ya go.

I know I haven't been on here in quite some time but I thought the Holiday Season would be a good time to let you know what's been going on in my life.
I had the breast surgery and I've had no problems whatsoever. No pain nothing. She did tell me to take a pain pill when I got home but I really didn't need it. The one bad thing was is that I had to wear this special bra for 7 days and that was a killer. It made me feel like my boobs were up in my throat. LOL
My darling husband bought me a new car for Christmas. It's a 2022 Kia Seltos which is their small suv. We were over at John and Peyton's for Thanksgiving and I bought it the day after Thanksgiving. I'm not good on long distance driving so John drove it home for us. I was giving them my Kia Soul so he just drove that back home. The bad news is that the following week I was stopped at a red light and some 19 year old kid hit me in the back. You cannot believe how angry I was. So now it has an accident report attached to it. Luckily he did have insurance and they are paying for repairs. It just seems to me that in this day and age no one respects any one elses property.
We won't be celebrating Christmas with the kids next week because John (who wasn't vaccinated) brought covid home to the family. So our Christmas has been moved up to New Year's which is fine with us.
I hope all of you have the Merriest of Christmas's and a very safe and Happy New Year.
All My Blessings for the upcoming year....

It seems like years since I posted anything and I think I'm coming out of my funk. The other day I made myself go to Needle Orts, my LNS, and while there I came across these two new Nora Corbett designs. I love stitching Halloween because of Little John's birthday and I thought these might be ideal for getting me back into the swing. They only have three different fibers.....black silk, a Waterlillie and a kreinek braid plus some beads.

Well I got the results back from my mammogram and they're not looking good. They aren't calling it cancer but "abnormal cells". Now that's a new one on me. I have to have an MRI and then I have a discussion with the surgeon about the removal and then we'll see about an oncologist about follow up treatment. To me that sounds like cancer. I got the news yesterday only after I called them to see if they got the results back yet. I asked the nurse when they had gotten them in and she wouldn't tell me. I'm just wondering how long would they have waited to call me. Have I ever said I hate Doctors! If not well I do and this is going to be a difficult road for me so I'm asking for some prayers to help me get thru this.
I hope spring is happening in your neighborhood and showing a sign of rebirth.

It's been quite awhile since I posted and I just want to thank the ladies who emailed me to make sure I was okay. Other than being bored, depressed and worried....I'm alright. I went this past Monday for my annual mammogram and they found something that wasn't on last years. I go in on March 1st for a biopsy to be taken to see what it is. The doctor is pretty sure that it's a cyst but she wants to make sure. I'm not real comfy with just a biopsy because when my husband had cancer in his lung, the biopsy came back negative but the doctor, bless his heart, had a bad feeling and decided to operate. We are very happy he did because it was cancer and if we had gone by just the biopsy Lord knows where my hubby would be today. So I'm just not having a happy moment over this development.
Question.....how many of you have had the vaccine? I have decided not to get it in any form. Hubby is waiting for the one shot from Johnson & Johnson but I'm not a very trusting person when it comes to medicine. I really don't want anything to do with any of them.
I haven't been doing any cross stitch but I have been cleaning up my sewing room and doing some knitting and crocheting. This first picture is of my storage bins for my yarns and yes each one of those bins is full of yarn.

I know it's been a rough year for all of us and for those who lost loved ones due to the Covid pandemic my heart goes out to you. I just wanted to wish all my lovely followers the merriest of Christmas's and here's hoping that 2021 is a better year for all of us.

I can't believe it's been a month since I posted last. Things have been a little crazy around here and our health hasn't been the greatest. I think I'm on the mend so hopefully I'll be able to get some stitching done and posted.
I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving with family if you were able to. We went to the kids because they are close by and Peyton did all the cooking. LOL She makes a sweet potato casserole that's to die for and there was no way I was missing that. Here's a picture of the three rugrats dressed and ready for bed on Thanksgiving night.

Peyton and the children were over at our house the other day and Evelyn wanted on Pakaw's lap. Pakaw is what everyone calls my husband. Peyton started it when she was a little girl and we've never figured out where she got it from. Anyway, Evelyn just made herself very comfy on his lap and I snapped the picture. This one is being printed out for safekeeping.
