The Only Creature Stirring,Was This Little Mouse
Thursday morning I knew the time had come to be merciful, so I pulled the plug. Well that day Deb, Amanda and I had planned a
girls day out. We were all excited, but shortly after our first stop, Mothers day Out called and Andrew was sick. We all went to get him, Mollie as well, and he was sick. Poor little fellow. Anyway Deb and I got lunch took it to Amanda's then we left to do what we had to do. While we were at Kohls, I said, "Deb I am going to look at coffee pots." She gave me this look. You know what I am talking about. The look that says I am not believing what I am hearing look. She said, "Well look, but don't buy!" I have NO coffee pot I am thinking. So, I pulled the Mother rank, and said,"Does someone have me a coffee pot for Christmas?" Again I got the look. I said ,"If they do they better give it to me now or I'll be drinking, heavens forbid, instant coffee until Christmas!" So she confessed and that is how we now have this.
The title of my blog probably makes you all think I have put something in my coffee. Not the case at all. I just love this little guy. Libby,at Rusty Shed Prims, brought him to me when she visited this summer.
Speaking of Sharon and the Speckled Hen, there will be no more of these taken in front of this sign, we all have come to recognize.
Well the Speckled Hen is moving to downtown Clinton in January. The new shop is beautiful and pictures will come. The old sign however is going to really be missed.
I have enjoyed spending this cold Saturday morning with you all.I am going to make some candy today. I hope I don't eat too much of it, but no promises. I love Christmas! I love the hustle, bustle, the sights, the smells, the sounds. I just love it all. I hope you do too and I love you Coming Through My Back Door, where life is good.
PS: Please continue the prayers for Amanda. Her chemo, and it is a harsh one, we've been told, starts Tuesday. I have received e-mails from so many saying you are praying, and I know you are. Thank you from the bottom of all our hearts. Here is a face to go with your prayers, if some of you haven't read my blog before.
