So, About December and My New Place!

Merry Christmas!!  Happy New Year!!  And, Thank you all so much!
Yes, all of that, all at once!  I'm so sorry to have been away for so long. But, I finally, have some wonderful news to share with you! I hope when you hear it, you will understand and forgive my absence.
For those of you who have hung in there with me over the last few months and some. I am happy to say, years, you probably remember my requests for your prayers, as my wonderful little "house above the roses" was to be sold and I was quickly thrown into a tailspin of where my new place to call home was. I gave you a brief update about it back in late July, here. By the end of August the house had sold and I was, for the first time in my life, without a home of my own.

What to do Weekends #154 ~ Happy New Year!


Happy New Year!
May your year be Blessed beyond measure and all your needs be met!
Many Blessings to you all, today and everyday!
May we all find a greater sense of contentment.
~Theresa.

Welcoming Autumn Anew, Every Year!

Isn't it wonderful that we all have our own way of welcoming each Season in our homes and in our hearts?! I love that! Whether it be through some special decor project, a recipe that you've been waiting for the cooler weather to make, or as simple as getting your favorite sweater or fuzzy slippers out. We all(I am speaking in general, of course)  do or have something that speaks "AUTUMN" or "Fall", "Summer" or "Spring', "Winter" into existence for us at our homes and in our hearts.

This year, as most of you know, I find Autumn coming while I am in between homes. One that has sold, and I have not yet discovered the new one that God has waiting for me. That doesn't mean, by any stretch of the imagination, that I am not rejoicing over the arrival of Autumn! Quite the contrary is true, it is the changing color of each leaf,  the first few sprinkles of rain, the chill in the air and my fuzzy slippers and cozy robe that bring peace and a greater sense of home than any house could provide.

What to do Weekends #147 ~ Albeit a bit late!

Good morning, friends. Thank you so much for popping over. My sincerest apologies to you and my What to do Weekends Co-host, Linda from the incredible Crafts a La Mode!
I have no glib anecdotes for you. I have a head cold and bronchitis.  I don't know if it was the benedryl, or the Dayquil or the honey and cinnamon that did me in.  But, at the time the party was to be posted I was out of it and grateful for that! So, if this reads a little like a flu induced stupor, it is! 

With that said, Linda pitch-hit the party out of the park, all on her own. So major kudos to her for that.

I have been popping around and pinning your work during the past week and will continue to do so. I'm so grateful to tell you that if you pop over to Crafts a la Mode you will see Linda's awesome Features for the week. I, on the other hand, will have to make it up to you, I promise, I will, after I can crawl out of bed for more than a half hour at a time.

Best Ever Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins!

Happy October!  Are you enjoying the Fall? This time of year is so exciting for me. I'm loving the cooler weather and all the changes that come with it! I hope you are enjoying it, as well. Ok,  on with Recipe! You know, there all kinds of fancy desserts on the internet, and heaven knows I am tempted to go for the WOW factor, as well.  The truth of the matter is that the best recipe I have to share with you in this month, or for the Fall weather for you and your Family to enjoy, for that matter, (as mine does) is a muffin.
It's my own recipe, I have tweaked here and there over the years. It is really quite simple. No appliances necessary, just a good, hot oven.

What to do Weekends #140

Welcome to What to do Weekends Party!
 Your hostesses, Theresa and Linda could not be more thrilled to have you here to kick off the Weekend and the Party!!
Theresa wanted to take a second to ask you for prayers for all the firefighters and the victims of the recent #ValleyFire. I live in Northern California and we are going through the most devastating Fire season in history. My county and several others near by have lost so many homes and lives, as well as, all of their belongings.  Such devastation is so very hard to see. I am okay. but many are not. Please, mention them in your prayers today, tonight, whenever you can. Their fight is just starting. We have pop up evacuation centers everywhere and we rush our clothing and as much supplies as we can to try and aid them. But, I'm afraid it will take alot of time for most. Thank you.
Thank you to all of you who come join us here with your wonderful Crafts, Recipes and DIY incredible creations with us every week~

A little update and a lot of thanks!

Good Morning! Happy Thursday morning! I wanted to just take a minute to Thank you all so much for your prayers and support, whilst I continue searching for a place to call home. I, also, wanted to let  you know just exactly where I'm at, right now. God's Grace and your prayers have provided me with an extension at my beautiful little home! You may or may not recall that I had only 60-days to try and locate and move into a new place to call home. If not, you can read about it here.

Well, something wonderful happened.  I have packed 80% of my beautiful belongings up and purged like no other,  allst while I had to have things somewhat tidy for the realtor to show my home to prospective buyers! Wheww! Not something I would care to go through again. But, here's the thing, the offers on the house were either too low for the current owner or contingent on some thing or another......bottom line: It has NOT sold, and I have been granted an extension through August 31st!! A good month and a half past my original move out date!

Happy Thursday Evening, All, & Welcome to the What to do Weekends Party! We hope you've had a wonderful and creative week!!
Linda and I each feature one of our own picks as a Bonus, we thought we'd like to start out with that!!
My Bonus feature for this week belongs to The Crafty Blog Stalker for their great tutorial on making this
Beautiful Patriotic Wreath
Now, that I've shared my bonus feature, I'd love to check in with you all and keep you up to date on what's going on with Linda and myself.

This IS What I Am Doing!


My search for a new place to call home continues. Thank you all for your prayers and kind words!  I have woken up, to this song playing in my head, more times than I can tell you.  So, I am doing as it says and Fixing my eyes on the only One, who knows all and has planned every twist and turn in my life for His Good. 

 I truly know with all my heart that He has a divine plan for me, and will let me know when the time is right.  Until then, I am using the brain, He blessed me with, and looking at and trying every possible lead. Nothing yet. 
His timing is perfect, not mine. :) 




I will keep you posted. If I was not so set in my ways, I would declare what a wonderful adventure!
So, I am trying to remind myself, daily, (no matter how uncomfortable) that this IS an incredible opportunity for growth and time to draw closer to Him. Life has taught me, in hindsight, that every trial has a reason, and that I am better and stronger after going through each and every one!
Many Blessings to you all, today, my friends!
Theresa
