Fresh Start

Since I last posted last October, I am going to catch you all up to what has been happening to me since the last post.

We did make it up to Tennessee and I met Dan's Step-daughter, his grandsons and his ex wife.  His step-daughter was very sweet, his grandsons were cute and adorable and his ex-wife.....well, I was taught that if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

In November, we celebrated Dan's birthday with a nice quiet dinner at Cracker Barrel.  We also had a nice quiet Thanksgiving with eating meals that the Am Vets delivered to us.

In December, I had female surgery which went well.  We also went over to my son's house for Christmas and had a very good time.  Both Joey(son) and Jennifer(DIL)  both liked Dan and were happy for me that I had found Dan.  We had an evening meal of dinners that were once again delivered by the Am Vets for Christmas.
The gifts that we got and gave were very nice.  We gave each of the grandkids $50, $25 each to Joey and Jennifer plus a big box of chocolate covered cherries(they both love them).  They gave us a gift card to Applebee's along with a tin of cheese puffs (I love cheese puffs).
Dan gave me a new computer, a fancy robe and slippers, a Nook and a reading light.  I gave him some tools and a couple of Sudoku books as well as some marshmallow Santas.

For New Year's Eve we spent a quiet evening at home....we didn't even  make it to midnight.  New's Year's Day was just another quiet day at home.  We did go out to eat but that was about it.
The surgery didn't solve my female problem so I have a doctor's appointment this afternoon(Jan. 7) to see what the next step is to correct the problem.
We will also have dinner with Dan's family at Cracker Barrel for his parents birthdays.  On my birthday (28th) Dan and I will celebrate by ourselves.

On the stitching front, I have been working on 2 Christmas stockings, 2 Christmas ornaments, 2 5 X 7 projects and hope to stitch a tree skirt this year.  The stockings are Santa Collage for Dan and Santa and Kitten for me.  The 5 x7's are a Welcome sign with a butterfly and Tree Frog Trio.  The skirt is called Holiday Harmony,  I have uploaded pictures of the stockings and the tree skirt but I don't have pictures of the 5 x 7's yet.  I also have pics of the ornaments.  As you can see, I have progress pics  of the ornaments but I haven't taken any progress ones of the stockings yet and I haven't started the tree skirt yet.

That's about it for now.  I hope to do better this year in keeping up with my blog.

Until next time,
God Bless
