for the past 2 days it has been flurrying in Jersey - which is good - b/c no shoveling or anything, but the essence of the holidays have arrived!
my Dress Form = 'Christmas Tree"
(taken with iPhone, so it's doesn't look as fab as it does in real life)
So lovey butterflies - here above is my dress form 'tree' .. *ick* i know u can still see 1 of my construction permits (there are many) on the window - no curtains yet - no alot of things yet - but i'm getting there - and yes i have the old heaters plus forced hot heat (my dad thought it was some grand idea to have 2 heating systems, "just in case" - yea i know, it's Jersey not Antarctica!) !!
Hopefully when i host Christmas this year (still working on my menu, which i realized i don't even have salt, my fridge is just full of beer and vodka, and i have a cabinet full of dessert wines) i will have lots of pics to show what i have done with the place ;o) - i'm very proud of myself! - last weekend i cut and installed my shelving in my bathroom closet - this girl right here knows how to use power tools :o)
PS - my color theme for Christmas is purple, blue, silver, and lil dashes of red :o)
my Christmas dinnerwear is light blue and silver
mom is doing great! - cancer did NOT spread to lymph nodes - which is great news - of course she is sore and hurts - but otherwise she's fantastic! - i'm exhausted! - truly and utterly exhausted still! - but a lady in one of the waiting rooms (mom had a zillion more tests and were all over the hospital before the actual surgery) reminded me that saying "it can't get any worse" is NOT what to say, because it can! - her daughter, no older then I, was there that day for the same reason as my Mom, she had breast cancer! - true life lesson - take 1 day at a time - live the life you wanna live - have no regrets - surround yourself with the people who care - and don't put out any negative energy in the universe, it can come back to bite you!
