Winter is Here...Are You Ready?

Another year is slowly coming to an end and the snow storms are just beginning. As Winter extends itself for another 5 months, are you prepared for it? If you haven't had a chance to prepare with food and water for this Winter, it is wise to start as soon as possible for next Winter. 

Here's a little peek into my food storage and you can have one just like mine by next Winter. Just add a few extra items every month into your grocery cart. A little at a time will add up and you will also have a well stocked up storage for your family in case a snow storm arises. Buy food , water and some needed medical supplies throughout the year and your family is well worth every cent you spend.

Be Prepared.

Christmas Beauty

The joy of the Christmas Holidays is spending time with loved ones, but one thing I enjoy is looking at other people's ideas in decorating for this festive occasion. Here are some beautiful entrances and wreaths I truly like.

The House is Slowly Getting Decorated.

The camera made the gold ornaments look silver and the ruby red ones look burgundy, that was weird.

This year all my decor colors are terra cotta & ruby red with gold.

It took me 3 hours to paint and complete Miss Petunia Pickles so she can greet all those who come to my front door.

Christmas Craft for 2014

As last week came to an end I was delighted to care for my youngest grand-daughter as my son and his wife attended some temple sessions. Our day together was great. She found this Christmas craft on Pintrest so she went to work on it.  It is made out of the cardboard from the toilet paper rolls. She painted it and then she added the ornaments to it. Check it out.

She even made a star out of the paper rolls and she painted it in gold.

I think she did a very nice job.

So Happy to be Home Again

 After spending 2 weeks in Puerto Rico in 90 to 105 degree weather every day I was happy to come home to 40 degrees.

Puerto Rico was beautiful as you see in these two photos.

Two days after arriving home our first snowfall came down real good. Its been snowing flurries on and off since this snowfall, but it is suppose to snow a lot throughout the entire week. I took these  photos from my balcony and the view was sure lovely. I was so happy to be in the cold weather again. I love Winter and snow, and after two weeks in heated weather in Puerto Rico, I realized I could never return to my homeland to stay. I do not like the heat and I avoid the sun at all times. So here I am and here I'll stay...I love Winter.

Puerto Rico...The Beautiful Homes and Plants

Puerto Rico...The Island Of Enchantment

My two week stay in Puerto Rico was very nice even though it was not a pleasure trip. I went on an urgent call because my aunt is very ill. My time there was of more work than pleasure and caring for her was a joy. She is still alive but we know her time here on earth will end soon. Her cancer has spread and there is nothing that the doctors can do anymore.  But when I visited my Dad I got to take this lovely photo of this beautiful home in front of his house.

Isn't this house a beauty.

Here is my Dad's green home.

This is his back yard

And this is part of his side yard, a beautiful embankment full of banana plants, mango trees and Kenepa fruit trees...just lovely.

I stayed for 2 weeks with my cousin and his wife caring for my ailing aunt. Their small wooden house was dreamy. She has a green thumb for plants, so check out her beautiful plants...they are gorgeous and God waters them every morning from 4am to 6am. Her front entrance is full of palms, ferns and colorful plants.

 Her car port is full of plants of every kind.

Even the back of their house where the horses are is gorgeous full of plants.

Banana plants everywhere

And of course there are palm trees throughout the island which measures only 35 miles by 100 miles.
Puerto Rico was beautiful but too hot for me. I was dying to come home to Fall weather.
