Joy To The World

My Little Friend

Her name is Zarriah

She is Justina's daughter (my co-heart at work).

I have known Zarriah for over a year now and she is
such a cute child and very inquisitive.

She came with her parents to the Halloween "Defright Night"
at my home,
she was..
Neytieri from the Avatar Movie.

I let the children pick their very own pumpkin from my pumpkin patch
and she seemed to have loved that experience.
This week I got call from Zarriah (unbeknown est by her mom) asking me if
I had a..."Christmas tree patch?"
I had to smile...I told her that I did not, but that the
swede and I would work on that next spring...
(maybe we could plant a few pines in the side yard.)

Zarriah, I invite you to be the very first person
to cut a Christmas tree from my "patch"!!!

You are my favorite friend!

Burrowing in...

..for the winter of 2010.

One of the ways I have found to embrace the cold white winters of Utah is to...

have a space where I can go and
be creative, listen to music and do
things that I would normally not do during the spring and summer months.

The" swede "becomes my HANDYMAN!!

Hey girls, gather round
Listen to what I'm
putting down
Whoo baby, He's
my handyman

He's not the kind to use a pencil or rule
he is handy with
love and I'm no fool
He fixed my broken heart,
I know that he truly can..

If your broken heart should need repair
Than he is the
man to
He'll whisper sweet things, you tell all your

They'll come
runnin' to him.
Here is the main
thing he wants to say...
I'm busy 2
4 hours a day
I fix broken hearts, I know that I truly can

Come-a, come-a, come-a, come-a, come, come
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Come-a, come-a, come-a, come-a,
come, come,
They'll come runnin' to me.....
(James Taylor)


This year he put up peg boards so that all my tools
have an organized place to go, when I am finished using them.

He replaced all the old fashoined christmas light with LED
ones so we could say that we are trying to go GREEN!

Energy burning ones on the left and the LED "Green" lights on the right.

....on to other holiday projects!
