JUST A LITTLE **** HI ****

Just a quick HI to you all. The shelf below I picked up at the thrift store this week for $9.99 and it's in perfect shape. I was going to resale it.....but
it looks perfect on the wall by my desk :) The tin platter on the top shelf was a gift from Emily at Livin Vintage from the Christmas swap. It has flowers on it and I think is so pretty. I just put a few things up and will "tweak" it later.
If you can see the TV, you will notice Richard Simmons :) We worked out together this morning. This is the first photo I've taken of myself, by myself. This is the best one of 3 that I took:) Notice, or maybe not, NO make up on my face....



I talked to my Mom today and she is okay. I can hear in her voice that she isn't back to her old self. The nurse was to come out today. The nurse will come out again next week and Mom sees her Dr also next week . If you want to pray for Wisdom for her Dr, that would be awesome....remember, I don't feel she should still go to him...
I have a dentist appt tomorrow and then we are going to an estate sale and it sounds , Very good. I'll let you know...
I really have to get a job....no more waiting. I have to put on my "Big Girl Panties" and get a job...I LOVE to stay home, it's just with the real estate market and mortgage business being very slow and the savings account is getting WAY down there.....it's just time ....
I was so surprised to see SO many friends visiting me. It's the most, ever:) New Year means more New Friends. I'll try to visit you all soon. I have been on the computer looking for a JOB and that takes time, plus all the other stuff a "Girl" has to do everyday, well, my little days are JUST so BUSY...LOL...Lots of humor :)
Have a Great Weekend. See you all soon.
Warmly,
Deb :)

The time that you see posted for this blog isn't the correct time. Guess i need to figure out on how to fix that...computers.....UGH...or maybe it's JUST ME...UGH...

Hey friend, I haven't visited you in so long. I've been so busy! You look wonderful! "Sweatin' to the Oldies" I see:) That's awesome. It isn't easy to make yourself get up and actually do that, so you go girl! I will also keep your mother and her doctors in my prayers. God Bless, April

Chris said...

Hi Terrie, I just love your cabinet, If I can store or decorate something, I'm in love with it. Keep up the good work with Richard, I'm thinking about going back to Curves. Although this morning I have a catch in my hip that won't go away. I hate when that happens. :)

Hugs,
Chris

HeyDeb!
That shelf is fantastic and I love it! I like what you've got on it so far, I'm anxious to see what else you do with it.
I'm glad you spoke with mom and I'll continue to pray.
I think you're a very pretty lady, you don't need the make up!
Hugs!

Nermal and Kitty said...

I'm with you as far as loving to be home. My huband is a builder and we all know how that's going now. But I will try to hold out a little longer. Love your shelf--those kind are always neat to display fun little things. Hang in there, Nerm

Hey Deb!
That shelf is precious that you found...that's the hardest thing about treasure hunting, and selling... is letting go of the finds, or at least it's that way for me!
I am glad to hear that your mom is doing better...I hope she will continue to improve...
I promised to update you about my etsy shop, after I got it up and running, and I have to say it's doing well so far.
By the way.... you look pretty girl, with or without make-up. You've got good skin ...what else can I say!? Hope your job search goes well. I said a prayer for you Deb....
xoxo,
Queenie

Neabear said...

Love the shelf. I know just where I would put it if I had one. Good luck with the job hunting. Hope you find something soon.

Holly said...

Yeah, Deb, great skin! Mine has always been awful. As if acne wasn't bad enough now I have age, spots, red spots and wrinkles on top of it! Ha-ha!

Margaret Cloud said...

You find the nicest things, your photo is very nice, a good looking lady. I am still praying for your mom and sorry you have no trust in her doctor.

Counting Your Blessings said...

I WISH I looked that good without make-up! You're darling. Hope the sale was as good as you anticipated. Have a beautiful weekend. Blessings... Polly
