Through Myra's Eyes

Saturday, December 26, 2015


Hello Saturday!
Now that yesterdays holiday is over, lets enjoy the weekend again..shall we.
Nothing like getting up when your body says..hey the sun is bright..let's get up.
It's looking like a great day today.
I'm seriously thinking about going for a walk by myself.
I guess it's because I'm sitting here in front of an empty bowl of Life cereal.  What a great start of my day.
I'm going to get off to a great start today and go do it on my own.
As you can see I was reading someone's blog who was on a "let's do this high".  So maybe that is where I need to be.  Go on an adventure.  It doesn't mean I have to take a plane trip.  Put on my shoes and walk out the front door and explore the things around you.  
So with that advice, I am going to go for a walk to see what is really out there. This town is boring, I know this but maybe I can find something different to see and maybe find it to make me smile!
Happy Saturday..Enjoy.

Photo A Day..Week 52

Have you been taking pictures all year?  Me either.  I started out not so bad but, then something happen along the way to find life and here I am, week 52.
They are going back to a monthly list.  That means you can take a picture early and have it saved and not fall behind like me.
That is how I started.  It was easier.  If I saw a bench that I thought was cool, I knew I needed it later in the list.
I'm looking at this list now and thinking, am I really into this list? NO, not really.  I'm really not into this merry cheery thing at all. Maybe next year, but I said that last year didn't I?
I have gotten three Christmas cards so far in my mail box. Yes, I sent out over 20. That is ok, I did what I said I would do and that was to make cards and send them to be on time and that I finished.
Have a great Sunday and find some cheer.

Three cards in my mail box...27 sent!

 I have received Three Christmas cards.  That's really good for my mail box.
The front one was made by one of my long time pen pals.  She always makes the best cards.
The one in the back is from my bonus daughter..everyone needs one like her, she's the best!
The envelope is from a Jean, she has a blog called Pushing the Envelope..she is amazing.  She wrote she didn't know who would want this envelope so I said I would love it and YES! I got excited.
These are my cards that I sent out.
The one in front is a stamp I got carried away with. So I sent it to one of my friends who stops by this blog to see what I'm up too.
The envelopes in the back have a snowman on them.  I must say I had a lot of fun coloring them in.

Today is my son Drew's 22 birthday.  I made a chocolate cake for him, who knows if he will be around.  The two who I live with said why bother?  Well, that is who I am, I bother with things like birthday cakes.  SO if he doesn't show up I will eat some of it and out in the trash it will go.
Have a great December 19 to you.

Cracker Jack..Holiday Sugar Cookie Popcorn

Cracker Jack has always been a favorite of mine. I miss the box. I found these and thought I would try them before putting them in those stockings.
Yes I was asked to make stockings this year.  I haven't done this in many years so, I really need to put some thought into this one.
I really liked these a lot. Just the right amount of sugar, sprinkles and that great taste of pop corn.
These are a must try.
I hope you find them in your store.

Happy Holidays!

Oh Christmas Card, La La La

Christmas cards to send to all of those friends who have no idea what I've been up too all year.  I have been missing in life for a while.  
No good excuse  But, I do have a cell phone and I do say hello that way.
But, I got my craft on so now I must send these cards to those who are still talking to me.
I really love this one.
It was so easy to make.
They were cut out on a xmas piece and a tag. 
I'm so lazy, I bought the blank cards with envelopes.
This one is going to Baby Girls new friends family.
That guy I'm not suppose to know is important to her.
This one was a lets try something that looks easy but, it really wasn't.  I feel like it looks like a Charlie Brown tree.  You know that one that should have never been cut this year.

I hope you get your cards out. I'm usually never on time but, it looks like this year will be a big surprise!
Less than two weeks to go.

She always makes me laugh

 It's always fun to see one of my friends who I just love to sit and laugh with, that would be Viennia.
Together we are loud! Laughter starts with the moment we meet and continues to the minute we start the car.
Do we care who is around us? Around us? Oh there are others sitting trying to do their
We find each other in the strangest places, we stand and talk, catch up and hug and go on our way.
Friendship is an amazing gift and she is the best gift ever!

Its so funny how Baby Girl and I were just talking about her yesterday.  We hadn't seen her in such a long time, wondered what she was up too. Then out of no where, there she was!
We shared our lives right out there in the open, yes people where listening and who cares.
She wanted to know why we weren't friends on Face Book.  Oh no thanks. I only play games on that, but thanks for wondering.
I had the best 30 minutes with her.  She always gives the best hugs.
Keep in touch Viennia, I love you.

Mega Millions Please

It seems that every December someone wins the Mega Millions.  I would like it to be me this time!
I know we all dream of this happening to us, its like Santa bringing us that favorite gift. 
This would be a gift of all times.
Could you see me with that much money?  Oh I could.  I would do amazing things.  
This would be more then a bucket list.  I have a few people I would love to make one of their dreams come true.
Buying this ticket is all from a conversation I had with Baby Girl.  I said to her, if I win the lottery we can move to PA.  What was I thinking?  Well, I was thinking that she really wants to go to Penn State really bad. The only way I can think of sending her there will be to win the lottery.  
One can only win if they buy a ticket.  SO here is my ticket.  I hope you play this week too and maybe we can win together!
Winning will feel so good.
Good Luck!

Happy Birthday Gail

Happy Birthday Gail.  I know I am always late at sending a card but, I did make one and sent it yesterday.
About 37 yrs ago I met Gail from her brother, if it wasn't for him we would have never met.
I was that girl who just went to high school, Gail studied hard and had smart friends. Why she kept me around?
It was probably because I made her laugh.
I hope you had a great day, I'm sure KK made you a cake and the boys also did something fun.
Enjoy being 54!

Curtain Call...Oh just kitchen curtains

The smallest kitchen gets new curtains.
I pulled out the sewing machine and got it together today.
I only broke one needle and pulled out 2 inches of work, not bad for someone who hasn't sewn in years.
It really helps this ugly kitchen a lot. 
I love this material, but, you really can't see what it is until you really get up close.
Baby Girl asked if I was going to make different ones next's hope we can move out by then.

My son started talking about the curtains I use to make for the other house, such great memories of a house that is gone.

I can't let's buy them all!

Sometime's picking out polish is a hard thing.
So to make it easier on myself, I got them all.
Then, went to the craft store.  How could I pass up this paper.
Now, I have beautiful nails, with hands that look like I have been working in the fields. A little love to the skin and I will be fixed up in no time.
Happy December 3rd.

These colors are..."leggy legend" #1129 it's this pretty gold color
"with the band" #1132 it's a beautiful red, must have!
"virgin snow" #1135 Haven't put it on yet, maybe a lite blue/purple.
All three are from the 2015 Fall collection.

I know you have heard about the shooting here in California.  I live about 50 miles from it, so I am good.  It has been on the news night and day. I have noticed more police out on the streets while I was out and about today. We also had a police officer shot last week so, that has two cities over in a big sadness too.  
Stay safe and keep smiling.

It's starting to look like xmas in my bathroom

A new shower curtain, towels, a candle and a new must be xmas.
I have never made my bathroom look this good.  What got into me?
Well, my God Mother is coming from MN in 14 days, so I decided maybe I should make this small place look better.

Wow, towels too.
I really like them, I'm serious.
I only bought these two, can't get to carried away with this xmas stuff.
My friend Judy gave me this rug as a xmas gift.  She made it. I really got to pick it out.  She had others but, this one caught my eye.
I was going to put it in front of my kitchen sink but, then when I go so involved with this bathroom, I decided to use it.
Isn't this the smallest bathroom you have ever seen. One step back and you are out the door.
I know I should be happy I have a bathroom.

I hope I can get the lines out of this shower curtain.
All this came from Bed Bath and pretty!
Happy December.
