Don't Faint - I'm Still Here!!

I can hardly believe that it's been almost two months since I have posted.  Time certainly gets away from me.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are all prepared for Christmas next week. LOL

This jolly Santa was standing on the corner in my neighborhood last week. Don't know where he came from or where he went.

Have done a wee bit of Christmas decorating.

The breakfast room.

My vintage Christmas tablecloths on an old ladder.

This Amaryllis is just gorgeous!

Up until about a week ago,  my geraniums were just still so pretty. Then, we had a hard frost.

My final yellow rose of the season.

I got this small red guitar at an Estate sale and boy, have the girls enjoyed it. Here, Laynee is serenading us.  Bella just howls when they do that.  The girls think she is singing with them.

The last few months have been so busy.  My sister Jeannie has been in and out of the hospital with heart problems.  Kaycee has also with her lungs. Her insurance just approved one of those vibrating vests to wear at home. They used one quite a bit in  the hospital and it really helped. So, we'll see.

I am going to have some major eye surgery on January 4th in Oklahoma City. It's just cataract surgery but due to the other eye condition I have,  they wanted me to go to OKC to the OU Medical Center where they have the McGee Eye Institute.  So, will  be out of commission for just a few days hopefully.

Here's hoping you all have a  wonderful and happy Christmas and a great 2018. Will try harder to post more often. Special thanks to all of you who have  sent me emails checking on me.  You will never know how much I appreciate it.

Love from Judy and Santa Bella!

  11. Hi Judy,
    So good to see your post today and know all is fairly well for you and your sister and grands. Love the guitar with it being your signature red. How fun for the girls. Little Bella is so adorable. Love that Santa was in your neighborhood making his list and checking it twice lol! Have a great week as we count down to the big day.

  12. Judy- It is so nice to see a post from you. I am sorry your family has been fighting illnesses and that you have to have the eye surgery. Sounds like you are going to the right place to have it done though. How funny to see Santa just walking down the street.

    Wishing you and your family a Merry Blessed Christmas. xo Diana

  13. Judy, Love your Christmas home! We don't have any snow here, but it's been cold. Really love a bit of white for Christmas. We have had alot going on here as well. Some sad, some happy. Last Sunday we had a new grand baby arrive. That is always exciting for sure! Hope all goes well for all of you! Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  14. Merry Christmas. Your home looks very festive with all the red, green and white. I like those little trees on the red glass piece. Best wishes for your cataract procedure in January.

  15. Your home looks beautiful decked out in red and green. My favorites colors to use for the holidays. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.
