A special post for the house i lived in for 25 years













A special post on the house i have lived in for 25 years.
106 Grant Blvd.  Since Thanksgiving is on the
way, there isnt a better time to post about this house.
I am Thankful for the years I have lived here. Although
I was forced to live here for the past 12 years against
my will, it was a place I called home.   I cant believe
I have been here 25 years.  Where does the time go.
I raised my kids in this house, they are now grown.
It is a house they will always remember.  I remember
the house i grew up in on Gotham Ave, I still have
dreams about it,  memories that live in our soul.
So on Thanksgiving, think about the houses in
our life and be thankful we have one.  No everyone
does.  So many people lost their homes in Hurricane
Sandy, I pray for them all.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Snow storm Nov. 7, 2012.  I just got home from work.
Took an hour to get home in this snow storm.  I waited
for gas for only 20 minutes.  Yes, there is still a gas crisis
in my area.  Its going to be a rough winter.

Samplers and santas sampler pear II

This pattern is by Samplers and Santas - Sampler Pear II
What a nice fall piece.  I really enjoyed doing this piece.
I picked up some acorns i found at the park a couple of
week ago.  I knew i would finish this piece with them.
It adds a nice Fall touch.  I finished the acorns with
a clear coat of nail polish only on the green part of
the acorn.  This pattern was a FREEBIE so click on the
link to get yours.  There are so many ways to do a 
pattern.  Update on Hurricane Sandy,  All of my 
friends have their power back.  The last one was
turned on today.  I have to say, one of my best
friends from grammer school was here four days
in a row with her family.  I enjoyed every minute of
it.  We played games each day and laughed a lot.  
We made the best of the situation. I will cheris the
time we had because that doesnt come along often.  In
the storm we received a Gift.   We will have funny
stories to remember about it.  That is what life is about.
My heart goes out to people who lost everything.  I 
hope everyone is doing well.  We have another storm 
coming this Wednesday.

Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy.
I finally got my power back today after three days of
 no power. I didnt have any damage except for part of a 
fence in the back yard falling over.  I have never in all my 
years seen so much damage to Long Island, NY.  This is a photo
 of Long Beach, NY. I work with people who live there.   
It looks like a war zone. I do not live by the water,
 about fifteen minutes away.  Anyone who lives by the
 water really has some damage.  I feel very
blessed.  My heart goes out to everyone.  So many
 people lost their homes.  You see so many stories 
like this but until it hits yours area you cant
 understand it.  I am so thankful for lights and heat.
  Its amazing what we take for granted on a daily basis.
  It does make you think about things
differently.  Since it is November, Thanksgiving has come a
little early for me.
