If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Life This Week Between Christmas and New Years

Things are quiet around our house this week after Christmas. Hubby and I are back to work, but we've been coming home in the evenings and just relaxing. The girls have been watching some movies and listening to music (with headphones on...Yay!). Tracy and I have been playing with our new Kindle Fires and trying to learn about them. I think I'm gonna like it. I watched a movie on it last night laying in bed and that was fun. I'm also reading "The Help" on it.  I got it from our local library who now lends out ebooks. 

A couple girlfriends and I are considering opening an Etsy Shop together and have been kicking around some ideas of things we could make and sell. Have you ever heard of Zentangle (no I'm not into Zen)? I hadn't until yesterday when Cathy G. told me about it. It's kinda cool and I think you could do some really neat things with it. Basically, Zentangle is doodling, only in a deliberate kind of way. 

Kerri received a gift certificate from Hobby Lobby for Christmas so she's been wanting to go. Plans are to have Chinese for dinner then head to Hobby Lobby ( for some pens, crimper clamps for some jewelry stuff I want to try to make, etc) and then back home for a quiet night of crafting and whatever else we might get in to.  Sounds like a good night to me.  Here's a Video if you want to see what Zentangle is.

Have a great day everyone!


  1. I've never heard of Zentangle but an etsy shop sounds like fun!

    Enjoy having your girls home together...happy new year!

  2. Hope you have a Blessed New Year Cathy...

  3. I've never heard of Zentangle, but it looks like a lot of fun. Best wishes on your new Etsy shop! Can't wait to see what you make.

  4. I got a Kindle Fire too and ...love it! I've been downloading a lot of free books and purchased a few. I've also watched several movies on it and love that I can have my headphones on and be comfortable. I've always been downloading some of my documents on it to read later.

    I've not heard of Zentangle before but it sounds interesting. I love many Etsy shops. Let me know if you open one so I can visit and see what you have.

    May this next year be a good one for you and your family.

    Blessings and love,


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
