Happy Day After Christmas!

It was a beautiful day here yesterday and got into the 50's with the sun shining all day
I was going to fix a ham dinner but I'd been feeling really tired and drug out so I didn't but I did take a walk with the girls thinking the fresh air would do us all some good.  I felt really tired this morning and achy and wondered if I caught something when I went to Wal-Mart the other day? I went to make my second cup of coffee this morning (the first had done nothing to get me going) and looked down, only to realize I had been drinking decaf for the last few days!  OMG!!!!  No wonder I've felt so terrible!  I quickly made myself a cup of the full-strength variety and I am happy to report I am back to my old self and all the aches went away too!  Whew!  For a minute there I thought I was getting sick or old or both!  LOL!
I received some really cool things for to me anyway.......I love anything cowgirl and this zippered bag is awesome!   I like the "boss lady" part!
I got this sign from Sam and cool......did I mention I love rustic signs too?
and what's not to love about Mary Engelbreit anything?
  I got tags, a journal, stationary and a pen!  I hope she does more of the animals dressed up in clothes...I have a thing for critters dressed up and living "human type" lives.
A hand carved wooden tray that benefits women all over the world.........
Some handmade Lemon Grass soap that smells SO good and 2 paper mache moons for me to decorate...did I tell you I love the moon too?
And Penzey's Hot Chocolate Mix...always a winner!  If you have not tried it you must...THE BEST!  There's a mint flavored one too.
The little blue can is magnetized on the bottom with a see-thru top which I have seen people put on the side of their frig with spices in.  I just need about a zillion more! LOL!  It's a start though.  How handy would that be?  And you can write on the lid with magic marker.  I think I might have seen it in Mary Jane's Farm magazine.
And last but not least, my new neighbor came over this morning (thankfully it was AFTER I had some real caffeine) and brought me a card and some cinnamon rolls for Christmas.  First time in 13 years of living here that a neighbor has done that even though I did it for the first 3 years I lived here.  She said she is so glad she has me for a neighbor and that goes "ditto" for me! 
Happy Trails!


  1. I laughed out loud with your coffee story. The same thing happened to my husband a while back. I'm glad that it was an easy fix for you and not a real illness. Lot's of goodies came your way for Christmas. I'm glad it was a good day for you.

  2. Oh my....I know what you mean! I need some caffeine in the mornings...and a little bit in the afternoon, too! It really clears your head! Love your sweet gifts and what a thoughtful neighbor! Enjoy your weekend! Sweet hugs, Diane

  3. You made out like a bandit! I'm so happy to read it was just a matter of the right choice ams not something serious. Had a chuckle at that.

  4. I love all of your presents, but that purse is so darn cute!! And those cinnamon rolls-yum....
    Caffeine does have a big effect on us. My fix comes from good old black tea!
    Happy Boxing Day!

  5. I thought I was going to die when I gave up caffeine...the headache was horrid!
    You new neighbor is making an effort!! Yes!! What does she do for hobbies? Looks like she can bake:)
    You got some great stuff! :)

  6. Glad you are feeling better. We did that too one time (with the coffee). You got some nice gifts this year.

  7. Thank you for stopping by for a visit! Yes, Mary Engelbreit things are wonderful and so are all of the other treats you received. And those rolls...oh yum!!!
