The year 2012 is winding down friends! I came across a quote and am posting it to my blog today:
        "....we wear our busyness as a badge of honor, as though being busy, by itself, was an accomplishment or a sign of superior life. Is it?"
                                   -Dieter F. Uchtdorf for thought huh?
I don't know about you but I tend to get caught up in the busyness this life has to offer. I challenge you, in this new year, to take the time and smell the's amazine what it can do for the soul!

A Bowl Full of Lemons
Hey all! Just came across this cool new contest going on over at A Bowl Full of Lemons! I just was writing on how I want to become more organized and now this....Wow! What an incentive! Check out the blog for the rules and prizes! I'm definitely about you?
Whew! Finally got the Christmas decorations and trees down. Why is it always more fun putting it up than taking it down? The weather has warmed up here again with the sun shining brightly today! Always when January hits, I begin to think about Spring and what I want to plant in my gardens this year! I'm already getting the seed catalogs in the mail....
Well, I've got my budget figured out for the new year...the hubby and I are embarking on this get out of debt thing this year. He has promised to stick to the budget plan and you better bet I'm holding him to it!
I've also been planning the whole organization thing this year. I'm going to start with the kitchen and work my way through the house. I'll be posting before and after photos when the process gets started! Can't wait to have an organized home :)

A very Merry Christmas!

Well, folks....another Christmas come and gone! It was a busy day with hopes of a white Christmas but, alas the snow didn't make it. We had a feast with family at my daughter's house with lots of laughter, debates, and sometimes arguments :) Pretty much a typical family gathering for us! I thank God for sending us His Son and I thank Jesus for loving us so much that He gave up His life so we could have access to the Father and an eternal life in Heaven.
Ohhh, yeah! We can't leave out Dear Old Santa!
Here's hoping you had a wonderful Christmas and a are looking forward to a very Happy New Year!

Newbie here!

I'm new to the blogging world! I am going to try and include many different topics on my blog, thus the reference to more than I bargained for title. I know that the holidays are upon us, but I have been planning for the New Year by reading some of A Bowl Full of Lemons postings. If you are in need of some serious organizing tips, please check it out! I've got to tell you, I am inspired! I plan on using this blog to post some DIY projects, recipes, weight loss tips (I am going to try clean eating starting January 1). I don't know....we'll see how it all evolves!
