Stardust picture

Snips and snails..
and puppy dog tails..
that's what little boys are made of,,

Had a call around 4:30 Thursday afternoon from son Bran..
he and wife Jamie were out looking at something or other for their home..
His Message: " hey, Jamie's water just broke!"
Of course,as she was scheduled for a C-section for this Saturday, this minor event caught them totally off guard!
They had not a clue as what to do!
We asked,is Jamie's hospital bag in the car?
Are you closer to home than to the hospital?
Then drive carefully home, retrieve the bag..
and get to the hospital! 
which they did..
Daughter Heather called around 5:30..
as she was finishing her Nursing class at another hospital..
Bran had called for her to come and stay with him..
(they are very close, always have been)
Heather called again at 9:30..
or rather  she picture mailed me ..
the photo of the most adorable little fella..

Braxden Thomas..
weight 5lbs 4oz..17.5 inches long

Altho there was little sleep or rest due to hospital routines..
here's the happy Daddy Bran and baby Brax,,..
Mommy Jamie is trying to rest a bit..
if all goes well,they will go HOME on Sunday!!

My wishes for You...

After serious and cautious consideration, 

your contract of friendship has been renewed for the New Year 2012.

It was a very hard decision to make, so try not to mess it up!!!

My Wish for You in 2012: 

May peace break into your home and may thieves come to steal your debts! 

... May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for $100 bills! 

May love stick to your face and laughter assault your lips!

May happiness slap you across the face, and your tears be that of joy!

May the problems you had, forget your home address! 

In simple words - may 2012 be the best year of your life thus far!!! ...

Thanks to each of you who have become "followers".. although  I tend to regard each and every one of you as my cherished blogging family..
Whether you visit regularly, or just pop in sporadically,
know the latch-string is always out,the porch-light is on..
Pull up a chair and let's chat..or laugh, or cry.. 
together we can conquer the mountains..
or solve the most minute of prickly problems..
Above all, know you each have a place in my heart..
your thoughtful comments are deeply appreciated..

The Moon..

I see the moon....
Whispering Pines
Seeing this photo reminded me of  an evening ritual..
one that is repeated in most every home,
every night..
Night Sky...
the saying of ones prayer's before turning in for the night.
As a child, i would say :
"I see the moon,
I See the Moon
the moon sees me..
God bless the moon..
By The Light
and God bless me..
Now I lay me down to sleep..
I pray the Lord my soul to keep..
Four posts has my bed..
four Angels at my head..
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John..
Bless the bed I lay upon..
and then began the singular  God blesses..
mommy, daddy,
extended family..
finally pets..
then the riduculous..
to the mundane.."
then mom would end my prayer with..
come on, you are making others wait to talk to God!!
strange how a picture can trigger obscure memories..
Moon Road
what old memories of yours have surfaced lately?

Sparkling Turquoise/emerald green waters..

kissed by sugary white sands..

Wednesday..what in the world?

With the  weird weather of the past 48 hours..
seems like the entire country has been plunged into a deep freeze..
altho scenes such as these are so pretty to look at..
through the window from inside a toasty warm home..
while sipping something nice and warm..

donned in fluffy robe , slippers and jammies..
or comfy sweats..
all perfect for lounging about in front of the fire..

or curled cozily into your favorite chair..
book in hand,

furbaby at your feet...

Perfect ways to cure winter time doldrums..
Winter White
Red on White
Historic Homes
temps were extremely low in Florida..
in fact, were warmer here in Denver than back home!!
I would so rather be testing the waters of a tropical beach..
perhaps down in the Carribean..
catching up on my "summer" reading.....

What is your favorite pastime in  Winter?
Do you take a vacation? If so, Where?
pop on over and check out these fun parties!
