Just a bit of chatter

     Here we go again...  it is gonna keep disappearing on me ..  ugh..  well I will try to post..  Good morning everyone.  I hope your New Year has started well..  I started a fasting today for the Lord.  It will be my first time..   No meat and no sweets for 21 days.  I can surely use the no sweets.  I have gained so much weight, it is time to shed some pounds.. 
     This morning I pulled out my January teacup, this month is my birthday I will be 59 years old on the 15th.  I don't know where all the days went to..  I have looked back but it still doesn't seem to add up to 59 years..   but my oldest son will be 39, we are 20 years apart...  it seemed like yesterday when he was born to me.. and this month my 14th grandchild will be born... who would have ever thought I would have 14 and soon 15 grandbabies, surely not I...  
     It is rainning here in San Francisco...  so it is quite dreary, but I don't really mind at all..  it is cold as well... just going to hang out and work on my embroidery today ...  and set up some foods for my fasting....  
     I love this piece...  the other end  has the same pattern..  I can't wait until it is finished.  I'm working on several projects.  I tend to get tired of one thing so I will switch up here and there..  
     Tea with no sugar...  good thing I was down to a pinch already and some days nothing.  Well everyone I think I'm off to work on this embriodery then cook for later...  have a wonderfully blessed day...  with love Janice 🍃💙🌸💞🌺🍃

  2. Happy New Year, Janice! I'm loving your January teacup as I'm a fellow January baby too! I think that's amazing that you've been blogging nearly 7 years. Wow! My blog is just a toddler. HA! Thank you for participating in my giveaway (you're #12). Best of luck!

  3. Hello Janice~ It's nice to see you posting. Your 21 day fast sounds great, all the best to you and I hope it will be all that you desire for it to be.
    Your needle work is beautiful.
    I have that same heart tea cup in the picture of your header, it was given to me by a dear blogging friend.

  5. Janice, yes, many of us wonder where the years have gone! Still young girls inside, though, right?! :D Wishing you the best with your fast and in the new year. PS I always have my tea without sugar. After 21 days, you just might come to prefer it that way.

  7. I just love your beautiful Christmas table in your last post. The pink dishes are my favorites. I am always on the lookout in thrift shops for even one piece. The embroidery, the old fashioned basket, is such a pretty piece. I hope you have a very happy birthday!

I jump from one to another too.

  13. How nice to have a RA January teacup to celebrate your birth month, Janice. Your embroidery piece is just so lovely. You do such beautiful handwork. I hope the fasting goes well for you.
    I read about your Christmas post and your table was just so pretty, and your meal sounded wonderful. I'm sure everyone enjoyed decorating and eating cookies.
    I hope all will be well with you in this New Year, Janice. xo

  14. Janice, that is so good that you are fasting for the Lord. Your January tea cup is special, especially since it's your birthday month! wow, I can't believe you have 14 grandchildren. That's incredible.

    May the new year be a bright one for you, Janice, and I hope much goodness comes your way this year.

    love, ~Sheri

    ps I really like the new blog design. Brown and Pink always go
    together, and the pink hearts tea cup is pretty. :)

  17. I wish you lots of luck on your fast. Going off of sugar made me feel so much better. My moods improved dramatically, far fewer swings. That is a beautiful teacup, and have a very Happy Birthday!

  20. I hope you and yours had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and are having a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.

  21. I wonder how your fasting is coming alone. It is a commitment that is difficult. I see that today is your birthday! Happy Birthday Janice. I hope this will be a good year for you.

  22. Janice, you always have such beautiful things, I love just looking at the pictures of your treasures. I've been away from the blogging world for a bit, but I'm making time to visit blogs I love, so here I am. To answer your question you left me, yes, I did have a post up a while ago and I was sharing my fear about starting a business at this time in my life. I didn't get any comments so I thought nobody out there was following or reading any more and for some reason I felt embarrassed so I took it down. Funny huh? But I didn't want to share if nobody cared. I should have given it more time, I'm sure I would have received some support and encouragement! Well take care, it was nice catching up! Julie
