On Monday I posted about a giveaway that Becky of Sweet Cottage Dreams. This evening – there is sad news. Today, she and her husband lost their oldest son. Such devastating news. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.
May God hold them close at this sorrowful time…
Today I was going to announce my new giveaway (a day late, but ‘oh well). I have decided to postpone the giveaway until further notice.
In my lunchtime reading on Blogland I ran across this. I immediately started crying. I am definitely a sappy person. I cry at the movies and don’t care who sees. I also cry when I watch movies that I have seen a hundred times before. I am not sure if it is all that is going around with the economy, our country and our everyday lives, but today I was especially touched! My heart is very heavy today. As you know I am getting ready for a baby shower on Saturday for my daughter. With all the happiness and joy that brings – there is a woman, that has just had her first child and in a few days – must bury that child.
I can only imagine her pain and I can only say “words cannot say”. I hope that through her family, friends and others (like me) that she has not met – she finds the strength she needs to get through this difficult time. Our prayers and thoughts are with you!
I absolutely love this! Cottage Cheese and Peaches spotted with pepper! Yum Yum! Mister thinks it is really weird – Pepper and Peaches…..but it really is good. I tried his Pickle Sandwiches!
So welcome February! I have been busy working on the baby shower for my daughter. It is this Saturday and I am finalizing the food and drink choices today. Errands and grocery tomorrow. So much to do and so little time. I did manage to make a gift on Friday – pictures will follow after the shower. Don’t want to spoil anything!
I do however want to mention a giveaway that I ran across over the weekend. Extremely generous giveaway from Sweet Cottage Dreams.

I just love all the red. Pop on over and take a look. I just love all the red! And the matryoshka dolls! And who can ignore the pennant banner!? I just love her site! The music she has chosen for it is out of this world!
