Today, we had to go back to town to John's doctor's office. He was prescribed a new prescription for his blood pressure since he has been having problems with his blood pressure and pain in his chest and arm. So, another trip to K-Mart for that prescription. We again went to McDonalds for lunch before going to K-Mart, but this time, we had to pay. When we go to McDonalds, we always sit at the window and watch the pigeons on the parking lot just across the way. They were looking for something to eat......people usually throw food out for them, but there was none there at this time. So, when we go to K-Mart, John bought a large box of Honeycomb cereal, to feed the pigeons. Today they got treated to a free lunch on us.
I didn't have my camera with me, but took a picture with my cell phone, which I have just learned does not have the capability to download to a computer. Now, I say what is the use of having a camera phone if all you can do is store the picture on the phone or delete it.......and if you store it.....that's it......stored. Well, I am very disappointed in my phone......now I can't share that picture of all those pigeons eating the Honeycomb cereal......and there was a lot of them.

If you will look really close, you can see my fishing line going into the water where the ice has been broken away. My husband loves fishing so much, that he has to go even if the lake is frozen over. The ice was thicker on the other side but I refused to go out on it to fish. So we settled for fishing close to the bank on the side that had melted some......I refused to go back with him after that......I will wait until the ice is thawed. He caught five trout yesterday while fishing out on the ice. Guess you know what we're having for supper......fried trout!

I've wanted a family ring for a long, long time.
Right before Christmas, my husband had me order one. I was suprised! I had already spent so much on others for Christmas, I didn't want to spend on myself, but he insisted. I got a call from the store Wednesday so we went and picked it up. I love it! It isn't real expensive. The ring is sterling instead of gold, but the stones are real. One row has my first daughter's stone and under her's are her two children's stones. The other row is my youngest daughter's stone and under her's are her two children's stones. Their names are engraved alongside each stone.
I had the hardest time trying to get a photo that wasn't blurred. I wanted a close up but the one I've posted here is the best I could get.....and it isn't very good.
Now that I have a great grandaughter on the way, maybe I'll get a little pinky ring with her stone.
Wasn't that nice of my hubby? He can be good sometimes. lol

I'm not a party person, so I didn't party.
I'm not a drinking person, so I didn't drink.
Since it was Wednesday, I went to church.
Our pastor had a special presentation for the new year......and party food.
After church, I had a sewing project to finish.
I worked on the project until a little after 2:00 a.m.
What do you think?
Curtains hanging in our great grandbaby's nursery.
I think I will buy a sheer pink panel to go behind them.
If I can't find a pink sheer, I'll just have to make one.
Everyone is looking forward to her birth.
I will not make any new year resolutions!
I cannot keep them, so why make them?
But, I will say that I will try......
to begin each day with God,
to be a better Christian,
to read my Bible more,
to pray more,
to praise God more,
to be a better witness for God,
to rely on God more,
to be a help to others,
to improve my eating habits,
to lose weight,
to become healthier.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13
I am weak and have no will power within myself to succeed in these areas of my life, but if I commit these things to God, He will give me the strength to accomplish them. That is my goal for the new year.....to rely wholly upon God. When I've done that, I will have victory through Him.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU IN ALL YOU DO DURING THE NEW YEAR!
