Hubby and I just finished getting all of the Christmas things down and put away!! I decided this year what we did not use we do not need...... so I threw away a lot of things!! I need to do that more. I worked on recipes the other day and threw out tons of those!! You sure have a lot of them for 44 years of marriage!!

It has been a very pretty day today!! I have been mostly cleaning inside. Our doors and windows are open!! I hear that we are getting a cold front soon with rain so New years is going to come in cold and wet!! We cannot complain here in the South East because we have had a beautiful winter so far!!
Our granddaughter Madison is here now to spend the night. I also invited her mommy and brother for supper. Daddy is working but can stop by for a few minutes. He also has to work tomorrow early in the morning.

Not much to report from here. Like my new template? I think it looks clean and neat. I sure hated to lose that sweet snowman but one day he was just gone!! Something had to be done!! My goal is to learn this html and how to do this wonderful stuff. I would love to be so talented!! So many friends that I have are extremely good. They do not think they are talented but boy do I ever think so.

I am wishing each and every one of you a very Happy NEW YEAR!! 2008!! Can you believe that!!? I remember when it turned 2000 and i could just not believe that i had lived to see that year!! Now we are 8 years past that already!! This year I hope will bring all of you blessings and the desires of your heart!! Blessings to you all!!

The reason you couldn't see your post is for the fact you used your TEST template...from now on use the REGULAR blog ---the one with 700+ posts.

And if you copied the "new template" layout you copied the wrong one!!! Copy and save the FLIP FLOP FLOOZIE layout.

I'll go delete the test template to lessen the confusion. And I just copied what you posted on your original blog you need to use from now on.

We may not be going tonight. It is really bad outside-snow and it is a white out. Buck wants to go but I am not sure if it would be a good idea. Will have to make up our mind by the time B gets home from work..

Oh my, I love this new look, Sandy!!! It's so elegant!!!! Hope you have a wonderful New Year!

Hootin' Anni said...

Sandy....I'm so glad to have met you through blogging too!!!

I'd love to be a mouse and be able to read what your granddaughter and you wrote in her journal at midnight!!!

I was up too....but not by choice...the neighbors had all kinds of fireworks around midnight and since they woke me up, I got up and watched 'em all from the window. LOL

Hi Sandy , go to my blog site and tell me if you can see the full picture on my header..I am trying to get the full picture of the babies..

Melli said...

Well LOOK at YOU! All dressed up for the new year! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Yes, indeed! I'm going to WORK at having a HAPPY new year this year!!!

Hi Sandy,

I love the new look you have given your site. Maybe one of these days I will learn how to change mine. I tried a day or two ago to add a new header but couldn't figure out how to do it.

I am glad I found you and hope we can continue to be friends. Thank you for all the help you have given me on my blogging journey. I am definitely hooked!!

I pray the New Year will bring you all good things life has to offer, but I especially pray the Lord will bless you with good health.

Happy New Year.

Oh, I hope you'll go over and read the 7 Random Facts about myself as I mentioned you in number seven.

I loved the comment you made on my site about how you came about naming your blog. I didn't figure you wore flip flops, and you are way too nice to be tagged a floozie, lol.

By the way, I love your site name. It is so cute and original.

I just love your new look. When you get through cleaning and throwing out at your house you can come to mine. I still have all my Mothers recipes....on top of all mine.
I'm can't believe I'm seeing 2008 either. When I was younger I thought I wouldn't live past 30 yrs old.....herre I am almost 35 yrs later.
Wishing you and hubby a great New Year.
I was going to put a pic of Brande' on today,but my computer won't let me. Maybe tomorrow.
