Today was installation day for my new countertops! Guess I should have taken pics of my old ones....they were Swanstone and more of an oatmeal color. We had them about 10 years but have always been disappointed with them due to seams showing, etc. So...when hubby went back to work I said....I want new counterops! This is a solid surface LG product in blacks/dark gray with beige and white flecks. The sink is an off white molded in. Not sure they will be as durable as the old as far as heat resistant but for the looks...much happier! I will just have to get used to using a cutting board more often...and also for putting hot things on. Now the big job of cleaning out the drawers and putting everything back!

Did manage to get my Bennie bear on my shoppe this week. Just slow in creating right now with all that is going on in our lives. If any of you have followed Dollgiver's Attic and Linda "Simple Tresures" you have heard them mention prayers for Brian. He is our son-in-law and has been in treatment in San Francisco for kidney cancer that has spread into his lungs. He is only 41 and has 2 young daughters. He has just underwent his second round of treatments so are hoping and praying for a positive result when he is retested.

Above is a picture of Brian and his youngest daughter, Ashlyn. To anyone who may read this...please keep Brian in your prayers for a full recovery. Thanks so much...till next time!

Trying to get busy again!!

I am slowly trying to get back into things again. I took my tree down yesterday. I really dread that job...but now it is done..but still have other decorations up and my small tree in the diningroom up. I usually like to keep it up until the end of January, but we have company coming the end of the month and then getting new countertops installed so guess I had better think of getting it all put away before then. Our son-in-law began his cancer treatments today so kind of a hard time for me right now...but figure it is better to stay busy than just sit and think about it all.

I did manage to get a couple things listed tonight in my shoppe. Didn't get the best of pictures as it was late when I finished up but will have to do for now. I didn't have time to do anything other than some simple things..but then Valentine's day comes so soon after Christmas so doesn't leave a person much time. Until next time...prim blessings!
