Sunday Night Chit-Chat

Last night we opened gifts with my daughter and family. It was so much fun! My darling granddaughter was over-the-top excited to be able to open presents...FINALLY! 

The biggest excitement and surprise for me yesterday was my blog hit 10,000 Page Views!!! It always amazes me when I hit a new milestone! I love blogging and the fact that you enjoy visiting is both humbling and thrilling for me:) Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

It's time for the Sunday Night Chit-Chat before Christmas:) Okay, I am definitely in the holiday mood! It was a long time coming but once we were finally in the car on the way to my daughter's I was able to relax and enjoy:) The Sunday Night Chit-Chat is started each week by Carla at My 1/2 Dozen Daily. Be sure to check in with Carla to see what she's been up to:)

Since I haven't been very good with taking photos lately, I decided to go on Pinterest to see if I could find a fun quote for tonight. The above is so perfect because after 33 1/2 years, my sweet Hubby and I just seem to enjoy each other more every day. 

So, let the Sunday Night Chit-Chat begin!

I am...

Reading...I got a new Debbie Macomber book for Christmas from my daughter and family--Angels at the Table (haven't started reading it yet)! I love the stories about the angels Shirley, Goodness and Mercy! My daughter also got me 101 Patchwork Projects + Quilts. Love it! My daughter to the rescue again!!! After I saw the one Carla got I HAD TO HAVE IT!!! I am also reading Mail Order Holiday Brides by Jillian Hart and Janet Tronstad.

Watching...Ice Age--Dawn of the Dinosaur and then How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Listening to...The movie playing and family talking.

Cooking/Baking...Nothing today:) 

Looking Forward to this week...Christmas and some sewing time afterward. 

Happy I accomplished this week...I got everything ready to leave for my daughter's by Friday--whoo hoo! That was quite an accomplishment! Also got the house ready for our company that is now NOT coming for Christmas! Oh well, at least it's done! They might (but unlikely) come for New Year's!

Thankful for today...My wonderful visit with daughter and family! AND I think I have narrowed down my food allergy to BREAD! Don't know if it's the wheat, gluten or yeast yet but will avoid it like the plague! I had bread pudding on Thursday and Friday morning, then bread dressing on Saturday. My rash flared up and I felt like I was on fire! Bingo!!! Pretty conclusive! 

Well, that is it for me tonight! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and are totally ready to enjoy your holiday with family and friends! 



  1. Merry Christmas to you. A nice gift to yourself if you are able to live rash-free. Wish it had just been something like laundry soap..much easier to change...but if it's bread I know you'll manage to live without it. Take care.

    1. Fortunately not bread exactly so will start making it with rye or something else. I can mix some white flour with say oats and make a good loaf of bread. The eggs and almonds I think are my main irritants. Didn't even think of almonds! I ate them nearly every day!!! Thanks for visiting Kim!
