Life has kept me RUNNING!!!
Last week Phillip and I were gone for 3 days (Mon-Wed.), then on Thursday night was a Ladies night out with our church ladies. We were supposed to bring a White Elephant gift, a drink, and a covered dish.
I didn't want to bring a tacky white Elephant gift, and I did NOT have anything in my house that I wanted to give away...=), so my Thursday was pretty much taken up with making up some little burlap stockings in which I tucked a little money for Starbucks in them, and added some candy all for my White Elephant gift, then made my food and drink, and ran out the door. (Pics coming later.)
Then on Friday, we had our 2 Pastors and families, and our director of Music and family over for dinner. (Pics coming later.)
Then Saturday we went over to help and be with my Daddy and Moma, and of course Sunday we went to church. Here's some pics from WHERE I WAS LAST MONDAY--WEDNESDAY!! =)

~Jesus and some of our DEAR friends made it possible for Phillip and I to spend a couple nights in Serenity Log Cabins as a gift for my 40th birthday.
Here we are leaving our house and heading to Hillsboro!!~
~When we came into Hillsboro, OH, we quickly ran to a consignment store and a couple antique type stores. Then since we knew that the cabin has a microwave, toaster oven, small 'fridge and freezer, and coffee pot...we went to a grocery store and picked up things to cook/eat at the cabins, so that we didn't have to go anywhere on Tuesday. (Can you tell we were NEEDING A BREAK from all the RUNNING we normally do? =)
When we woke up the next morning....this is what we saw out the back door of the cabins!!! SNOW!!!!! YEA!!!!! Thank you, Dear Jesus, for the F.U.N. Snow!!!~
~Besides everything else I've been doing, I decided to make some new kitchen curtains. This is the BEFORE picture. These apple curtains were on loan to me from a friend.~
~I made burlap curtains that I ended up GLUING together, for my sewing machine DIED right when I was going to sew them. =) ~
I didn't have money to go and buy one, so I PRAYED that God would INSPIRE me to come up with a coat rack with something I already have.
That is when I thought of the OTHER door that matches the one in our living room!!!
So, I came home, asked Phillip to Please put some antique hooks that we already owned on that door, and Voila....~
