Life at the lake and holes.

Well January 3rd it will be a month that we have been here in South Carolina and so far it has been wonderful, we did have one small challenge Christmas night. We came home from Christmas dinner at our Aunts house only to notice that the toilet was not flushing properly, we had a septic man come and take care of it the next day and then yesterday it happened again so now our front yard has a hole big enough to bury a body in, we are waiting for someone to come out but it probably won't be till after Jan 1st. I think they have to dig up the whole yard to find the drainage lines, YAY! ;)

Are ya'll making any New Years Resolutions? I came across this idea and think it is just genius

This is one thing I will TRY to do this year. As far as stitching goals, if I could get two projects for myself done this year I would be a happy girl. I don't think I am going to take part in any exchanges this year, while they are great fun I really want to focus on WIP's that have been lingering in my basket for way to long

I will leave you with a photo of our dogs Samson and Licorice on our I mean their new boat. They love it and so do we. We are really looking forward to the weather warming up!! I hope everyone has a very Happy New Year!!

Holiday Desserts are calorie free

Hey Ya'll,
I hope everyone is having a fun filled weekend!! Has everyone completed their Christmas "chores". For DH and I it is going to be a very laid back Holiday. We are spending it with his Aunts and their Husbands I am really looking forward to having a Christmas dinner with family, it has been WAY to long.
We didn't do gifts this year for family but his Aunts have been such a HUGE help to us during our move out here that I just couldn't come to dinner and not bring them anything to show our appreciation.
So I decided that a handmade gift would be a great idea. Of course with the move I didn't have time to stitch them an ornament, which is what I plan on doing next year. But instead I made them Decopodge letters. S and C the first letter of their last name.

We are adjusting quit well to the "country" It is nice to here the crickets and see the stars. This morning we saw two deer run down the road into the woods, makes me wonder what else it out there. I think there are Coyotes because we have heard howling, and it wasn't the dogs around here. So we are careful to keep the dogs on a leash when we go out at night. Although tonight we went out and DH yells "Hey get the Dogs, there is a dog lose here". Turns out it was our neighbors sons dog, Tex, from the next lot. The dogs got along great and ran around like crazy. It was great for our dogs because, even though they have a yard now they miss playing with other dogs.

Well Friends I want to wish you all A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and Hope everyone has the happiest Holiday!!! Thank you all for the wonderful comments. If I don't respond to you please know that I appreciate your comments and hope you have a wonderful Holiday
Natasha & Family

P.S if you made it this far, yes Holiday Desserts are Calorie free at least until Jan 1st HaHaHa!!!!!

A lovely exchange recieved

I participate in a year long exchange and this month was the last one. It has been a great year. I was truly spoiled by Darlene, no blog. I loved every thing she sent it was like she was reading my mind LOL

I hope to meet her this year at the PALS stitching retreat in Myrtle Beach this coming October.

She must know my love for Biscornus because she sent me this lovely Sue Hillis Christmas Biscornu, which Sue her self wrote a sweet note on it :)

Living on lake time

Hello friends,
Have ya missed me?? We do not have internet yet so hopefully posting from my phone works out.
We are all settled in here in South Carolina and so far loving it. It is so quiet here but we are still close enough to stores where I don't feel like I'm completely in the boonies, driving at night though is tricky for me as there nostreet lights so it is alittle tough to see, and also when the fog rolls in from the lake that makes it tougher.
My title makes me chuckle because when we are going somewhere we are always a tad late. Last night DH's Aunt had a Christmas party it started at 4 we got there at 4:45 I told her, " sorry we are late we are on lake time" it could also be that we live 35 minutes from her :)
I have been trying to get some stitching completed but it is. slow going . I did finally get my fabric unpacked and put away. Hopefully I can start some serious stitching after the New Year, I have some projects I
really love to start.
I would love to share with you my WIP but can't upload a photo from my phone, so with that I will say to you thanks for stopping by, I hope everyone has a lovely Christmas and a happy holiday season!!
Hugs and happy stitching!!
