Just An Update…

Hello ALL!

Nothing bad, but my BFF from High School hit horrible traffic the first leg of her journey here…then yesterday, the snow came…she was about 3 hours away, but we decided it was best for her to stop for the night. Better safe than sorry.

So we will have to have that Hot Chocolate later this morning when she will arrive!

She probably will hit the road at checkout time, to finish getting here! She will be here till Monday night and leave early Tuesday morning to head up to VA. A friend is having surgery and she will be taking care of them, till while they convalesce. I have to admit, I was blessed to have her come and take care of me and my family and house while I convalesced from my surgery, 6 years ago! She is a blessing to us all! While in VA she also will be visiting some relatives there too! (my friend will be relieved on weekends!)

On her return trip from VA…she will again stop here for a day or two and then head down to see another friend of hers, in FL. then on the road again, back to Texas.

When I got the call that she was stopping for the night,

I went into the Craft Room and made a card for tomorrow’s Post!

If I am able to get some cards/challenges done while she is here, I will post.

We shall see…lots of running around to do!

I pray, God Bless you ALL, with Friends like Dixie!
