Rebecca's Giveaway

Rebecca at A Gathering place is having a beautiful giveaway of Pink Santa Cards and tags, so please go by and visit her beautiful blog. These are too lovely to pass up. I just pray I am the lucky winner of these.

I have been busy visiting with my sisters who came to help clean up the yard at my dad's house and I am so thankful that they can do it for me. I don't have the strenght or the know how to ride a lawnmower. I can do painting a little at a time, so I am going to finish our dad's room. Everyone is napping right now and I could use one myself.
The stove still isn't in and the gas line here at my dads broke so they are working on getting that done, so I can shower this winter without heating water the old fashioned way or going to Crowley every day to shower.
I found some wallpaper on ebay and the lady posted the wrong amount and I was very upset because I finally found something I could live with, so the hunt is on again and I may just go with the white and pink large stripe. WE may also drive to New Orleans where I know a shop that sells vintage wallpaper and I really want to check there first.

So if you don't see me here very often, you know I am working on my kitchen. I am doing well except for the pain I continue to live with and can't do a thing about it except to accept that fact for the rest of my life. Surgery is out of the question for now and not sure if I will ever let them cut on my back. I guess if the pain gets worse, I will have no choice or if I get fed up with the narcotics I have to take to endure the pain.
Well I think I will go and take a cat nap. Have a wonderful weekend. Love, hugs, and prayers, Pat

Hi, dear friend! Aren't those Santa cards of Rebecca's just beautiful? I bought one plus some of her gift tags already. I'm trying to get ahead of the holidays since our new little grandson will be here in the midst of the Thanksgiving rush.

I got your little package mailed today so be looking for it soon ~ please accept it with my love as an early Thanksgiving/Christmas present from me.

Big TX Hugs,

Thank you so much Stephanie. I am sure it will brighten my day. I have my new mircowave/vent up and it looks great in my little kitchen. The stove should be here on Monday. I love Rebecca's cards and I think I will talk Al into letting me go to her website and buy some. Thanks for stopping by. Big hugs, Pat
