Pets, ya gotta love em!

Hello my Glittery peoples! I am so dreadfully sorry that I have not posted this week! Sunday afternoon I was bringing groceries up my front steps when my dog bounded out the front door and ran me over, causing me to lose my balance and fall backwards down my steps, and I put my hand back to try and catch my fall and landed with all my weight on my bent wrist, spraining the hell out of it! Talk about painful! 

It hurt so bad I ended up in the emergency room and found out I had severely sprained it and ended up in an air cast for 5 days. I was unable to type because of the pain and because of the cast, so I have been spending some quality time with my couch and a few pain killers. I went back to the doc today and they told me I could remove the air cast, but it still hurts if I try to use it to much,but I had to type a post so no one thinks I just ran off for no good reason!

I hope everyone is handling this cold weather that seems to be affecting the whole country. We even got a light dusting of snow here in the Bayou and that is unheard of! So I have spent a lot of time bundled up with a blanket watching movies and doing a whole bunch of nothing lol.

Hopefully the pain will lessen day by day and I will be back to my old self. Typing does not hurt to bad so I should be posting more real soon! This weekend will be a busy one as I can clean some now, and we have a dinner with friends tomorrow night so that should be fun.

Stay warm and talk to you all soon!

Add some Sparkle to your life!!!

New Year, New Start....

It is a chilly and blustery day here on the Bayou...the wind is blowing so hard there are white caps on the river in my backyard! The day is bright and sunny, and the winds, while cold, are refreshing, and hold promise.

The hubby and the kids have been taking down all the holiday decorations from outside, and the tree came down this morning. I was a little sad, it was still beautiful, but the New Year is here and it is time to sweep out the old to make room for the new.

We had a great New Years, we had a party here at the house with a few close friends. It was a family function, all the kids running around playing and making noise, excited to be able to stay up late and play with their friends. We had a nice buffet style dinner, with pizza and breadsticks and sweets, and the adults indulged in a little wine and champagne when the ball dropped. After that we headed outside, as up and down the river, the folks set off fireworks high into the sky, with the beautiful full moon looking down on all the festivities. It was a comfortable and magical night, and I thought it was a perfect way to ring in the new year. I spent new years eve day making homemade party hats and keepsakes for our guests, with tons of glitter of course, as I AM the Glitter Goddess lol...I wish I had pics to share, but my camera has been broken for months and until income tax time in a couple of months I will not be able to replace it. I am hoping to get a better one that my old point and click digi cam, since I really want to get into photography this year. We shall see how funds are.

I see I have a couple of followers now, and I want to say hello and welcome!  I would like to say a special hello to Bella, and I think it is very neat that our lives are similar, and I wish we lived closer as well, I am sure we would get along famously! 

This past year has been a struggle for a lot of folks, and I am glad it is over. I look forward to this year, and I hope that there is an easing of the stress that has been eating at the world at large in 2009.

I intend to make this year one for personal growth, and to do things a little differently than I usually do, I want life to be...MORE...this year for lack of a better term. Life is what you make it, and I am going to make it spectacular!!!

Now I am off to finish putting the decorations away, and I think I will rearrange the furniture while I am at it, since everyone is home today! 

Happy New Year everyone!
