Welcome December

Saturday morning I sat on the screened porch at the cabin enjoying the pleasant weather and watching autumn leaves falling from the trees. One of my favorite things at the cabin is all the different varieties of leaves. I have live oak leaves only. I love them, but it is always so cool to see the wide variety of oaks at the cabin. The breeze was blowing the last ones off the trees. I stepped outside to capture the falling "leaf-flakes."

December will be here tomorrow, and I am wondering where the year went. Time is really flying...I need it to slow down just a bit.

I spent the day putting up Christmas. I will share bits of it in the coming days. 

The big news is that tomorrow means I have almost made it with my 30 day detox. I go to the doctor tomorrow. I will give an update tomorrow evening. 


  1. Congrats for making it through de tox Sandy!! You are one disciplined lady!! I look forward to seeing your Christmas decor. I saw one picture on Instagram and it looked so elegant. I tried to pare down this year and use the things that mean the most to me. I think I am done! Of course I am having breakfast with friends at Cracker Barrel on Thursday morning so I may find myself tempted by their wonderful Christmas things.

  2. That cross stitch is absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful. And yes, congratulations for making it through the detox. My hubby and I have been trying for several months to eat more healthfully, eating many of the same things you did. We have both lost some weight (he has lost more, of course!) and our blood pressure has come down, so we know we're on the right track. But I can already see that the Christmas season is going to be quite a challenge...

    1. Thanks for the kind comments about the cross stitching. Isn't that the way it always works: the men lose more weight and quicker. My husband has also been dieting and has lost quite a bit. We have just truly tried to make healthier choices and potion control. He has been biking a lot as he broke his hip as a young guy and has had hip replacement. I am walking. I will miss the baking portion of Christmas, but hoping to use the desire to bake to try some gluten free recipes. I will be tested for that probably later in this process since I have RA.


I am so glad you stopped by my little blog. Drop in again anytime.
