November Highlights

Wow!  November has flown by!  We have been crazy - busy with the remodel.

We got the bedroom (mostly) finished and moved downstairs.  (We still need to finish and paint the baseboards)  I was just a little nervous about moving my bedroom downstairs, but I am finding that I really like it.

Kim built a half wall in the entry way and will add a bookshelf on the other side to hold all of my scrapbooks.  The wall is up, but we still need to add the bookshelves and then do all of the finish work.

Lunch with Friends

I absolutely love going to lunch with friends!  This month I had the great opportunity to go to lunch with several times.  I treasure the time with each of these great friends and I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to have them in my life.

There are no words to express my gratitude for the many friends in my life (I include my sisters and daughters as friends!).  My life is so rich.  They are there to laugh with me, cry with me, they allow me to vent, they don't judge me - but love me enough to chastise me when I make foolish choices.  They support me, they cheer me up when I am feeling down and cheer me on if I do something well.
