Happy New Year to all of you my friends. I know, you don't have to tell me that I am a day late. But it's only day 2 of the new year so there is plenty of time for well wishes. I wish for all of you days of contentment, happiness, good health, and prosperity in the year 2012. Look at my calander for January. NOTHING is written in. For that I am so blessed. No doctors's appointments which means the Mister and I are in fairly good health, no obligations that I have to fulfill, it's a clean slate and for that I am so thankful. I have no list of to do's to nag at me until they are done, and I made no resolutions because I never follow through with them. Now mind you I could write a to do list a mile long of things I really need to do and the same goes for resolutions, however I am so going to try this year to be carefree and happy and live one day at a time. We will see how long this last. You my friends may have to remind me to go back and read this post before the month is over. (smile)
I was so blessed during the holidays to recieve so many gifts from friends and blogger friends. My long time friend Dimple in TN sent me a very sweet package. We have been friends since before our kids started kindergarten many, many moons ago. When the kids were in junior high school they moved back to TN to be closer to their parents but our friendship has remained strong. It has been almost a year since I have seen her but am hoping that will change sometime later this month. Miss you Dimple.
She sent me a really cute icicle ornament. She knows we decorate after Christmas with snowmen and snowmen related ornaments. I enjoyed it during Christmas and it is now on the snowman tree.
She also sent me two really cute ink pens. The Santa Claus pen I used during Christmas and have already put it away but look at this neat snowman pen. Looks so cute on table where I sit next to the computer. Fits right in with the snowman decor in the great room. There was also bath and body lotion I already am using. It's in my purse. She always remembers Darbee Rae and Holly. Darbee was so excited to get a big book with lots of stories in it. Thank you Dimple. We all love you.
Earlier in December I was so excited to find I had won Angie's 300th post giveaway. http://lilraggedyangie.blogspot.com/
So there you have it, my snowman tree all decked out for the winter season.
