Sleepless Night

It is after 11pm here and we are still up keeping an eye on the weather. We are having gravitational force winds and have had over 4 inches of rain. There are tornadoes here there and yonder as well.......not a safe feeling!

I had not posted and I thought I might shoot some bulletin posts at you.
  • My Daddy was finally given a diagnosis and is being treated by a neurologist that is familiar with that subject. It is trigeminal neuralgia. HE was put on a low dosage of meds and will work his way up to a stronger dose over the next two weeks, then see the doc in 6 weeks to see if that is strong enough. He was having a great day today and has been pain free for 24 hours.
  • My uncle had 5 bypasses and a valve repaired this am. He was in surgery around 7 hours and is slow to respond tonight.....please pray for him. My Mom spent the night at the hospital last night with my aunt. We have family here from North Carolina and Georgia.
  • I got all of my Christmas cards out yesterday. About 110 of them.
  • I started the task of wrapping presents today. I use to enjoy this part more for some reason. Do you like to wrap presents?
  • We are doing a no spend month on January.
  • I am tired........good night.

Blessings!!!!

I am sorry that I haven't been commenting as much as I usually would have been....things have been busy here (along with laptop problems!).

I am keeping you all in my thoughts.

Speak soon. Nicola xo

How did things turn out with your weather? I hope everything is okay with your farm and house.

I'm impressed with your getting your Christmas cards out. We haven't even taken the picture yet for ours.

Praying for your uncle and your dad!
I hate to wrap presents because I think the paper is all wasted, and it's too pretty to waste. I love gift bags because they are reusable.
I bet your wrapped presents are gorgeous.

These are delicious and easy to make. They're like a chocolate covered cherry in cookie form.

Here's one more :)

I'm making these for the first time this year. I plan to tint the filling red (it has cream cheese in it by the way). I can't find red velvet cake mix, so I'm using devil's food mix.
