Finished decorating my mantel for Christmas and thought Mary looked beautiful for Blue Monday. We are leaving for our Son's for thanksgiving and will not be back until December so I wanted to have everything decorated when we return.
Mary and Baby Jesus is adorned with a large silver star and lots of beautiful silver tulling and white lights.
Wishing all my facebook friends a safe and peaceful Thanksgiving!!!
This is the SEASON for SERVICE. How do you SERVE others?
Our church foyer yesterday had a display of some of the items we have donated for Thanksgiving for needy families.
We also have a coat drive where we donate good used or new coats, hats, and gloves. We don't ask any questions of the people who come in for help, they just receive a sack full of all the makings for a nice dinner plus a frozen turkey.
SERVICE to others should be an attitude of our hearts and we should do this year round, but it is so nice to do this at this time of year when so many people feel lonely or inadequate when it comes to having a nice dinner for their family.
If you don't have a project going for this SEASON, consider doing something----it will be so rewarding.
In the past few weeks there has been so many television specials and documentaries on the assignation of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963.
I will forever remember Jackie's beautiful pink suit and pillbox hat. In a documentary I learned that the pink suit is encased in an acid free container in the National Archives. It is blocked from public view in a windowless room, the suit was never cleaned.
.We just watched "Killing Kennedy" the movie adaptation of the book by Bill O'Reilly. It was really a good movie and the casting was superb.
REMEMBER where you were when you heard the news? I was sitting in 5th hour dramatics class in my junior year of high school.
Another thing that I will always remember was the clanking sound of the horses hoofs on the street as the casket carried the beloved President. Three days of mourning for America to pray for the country and the family.
2. A difficult or precarious situation, a predicament .
An awkward, complex or embarrassing situation.
I usually do not comment on political situations but so many of us Americans feel they are walking on marshy ground with the Health-Care Program.
I have seen interviews where families premiums will be so high they cannot continue to keep their coverage and they are going to be subject to a HUGE penalty from the IRS no less.
Some of my family are being penalized fees because their spouse decides to go onto their policies. It just doesn't make sense.
We are on medicare and that whole program is going to change so we don't know what will happen in the future. In the last few months, I have been denied tests that needed to run but Medicare said I was not a candidate for the test even though my doctor said it was necessary!!
On this BLUE MONDAY I hope you will all indulge me just a bit. Our Kansas City Chiefs are undefeated in the NFL. This is the first time in 10 years and the city has a lot to cheer about.
I found this on Facebook and saw the BLUE for the Buffalo Bills so I figured I could use it for BLUE MONDAY.
Our next game we are playing the Denver Broncos and they have Peyton Manning!!!! It is going to be a huge game televised on a Sunday night. We KNOW we have a big job coming up. But any team can beat any other team on any given day.
Hoping everyone is enjoying the beginning of November. I saw today that Christmas is only 57 days away!!!
What a fun Halloween party I attended on Friday evening before Halloween. I had planned on going but was unsure what costume to pick out.
My baby sister (yes, she always reminds me) called and said she was going as Sandy from Grease and her hubby was going as Danny.
Well what else but I pick but Rizzo!!!!
BIL wore his jeans rolled up with white socks and loafers. He had a pack of cigarettes rolled up in the sleeve of his T-shirt.
I found my black pencil skirt and pink sweater at the thrift store. I made my black scarf and had just bought these big black sunglasses a few weeks ago. My hair style is normally very smooth so I spent a few hours in pin curls to get it curly.
Don't you think they are a very cute Danny and Sandy.
Sister wore her jacket she bought at a costume store to work on Halloween. She works with breast cancer patients and she said they got a kick out of the PINK jacket.
Hope you had fun at your Halloween events and fun with all the trick-or-treaters.
