Christmas Presents

Hi there everyone...gosh, can you believe there is just 3 more days left in 2014. I am hearing a lot the last couple of days, that 2015 is going to be a great year of many blessings. One last World Wide Revival and then Jesus will return for his Church. I sure do hope those prophets are right in their predictions.
 But so far, for 2015, JP is looking at prostrate surgery. There's a 90% chance that it will work. He will be off work for a month....for us, I am not sure how all our bills will get paid...but I guess that is something I cannot worry about at this point. Sometimes taking one step at a time can be very hard, cause I want to know the outcome before even starting the journey. Oh well....time will tell as God is God and He never changes and has complete control. I need to remember: KEEP CALM ~ GOD'S GOT IT!!!!
So as my title says, "Christmas Presents" I have been wanting to get a little record player and finally found this one at Shopko. It was priced at $79.99 but I got it for $39.99. Yep, good price huh?? It was marked down to $49.99 and with my coupon "Spend $50.00 and get $10.00 off" could not pass up the deal. I wanted a black record player, but by the time I got back to the store to buy it (I am a procrastinator)....this is all that was left. Not my favorite of colors.....but it works and it was fun playing some of my "big CD's" hahahaha!!!

Now I am looking forward to going back into my record collection to see what I have....hoping I have some Franki Valli and the Four Seasons records. I shall let you know how my hunt goes. That will be for another blog. If you have not seen the movie "Jersey Boys" do rent the's a really good movie.
This was JP's Christmas present along with $10, two pairs of work pants, some peanut butter hot chocolate and a record. He loves lox and Christmas morning I wrapped up the frozen lox and bagels, tomato, onion and cream cheese in colored tissue paper and put it on the table. About 3pm I said to JP, are you not going to open your presents???? (he is not a fan of Christmas and I have to drag him to the table to open his gifts.....kinda puts a damper on the festivities....scrooge!!!) So needless to say he was thrilled...I should have taken a picture of him, cause he had a big smile on his face and wanted to eat right away....score!!

JP's gift to me was $15.00 and he told me to buy some prime rib at Festivals. They always have a special on Saturday's $10 a pound for prime rib with the sauce. All I have to do is cook 2-3 minutes on each side while sautéing the mushrooms....oh my that is a delicious meal. So I got a little piece today....was surprised they still had the prime rib special going....yeah!!!

Well, time to close for now....maybe see you on the 31st....geez, I need to get some cards made for my Etsy store....have really been slacking in that area. Oh and time to take the tree down......another string of lights my little tree does not light up. Goodness, bad year for lights.!!!

Have a good day and keep looking up.....Cheers ~ Louise

Got your Christmas card in the mail, thank you! :)

Tony wasn't much of a Christmas person either, so I get that! Glad J.P. liked his gifts - that was one of Tony's favorite breakfasts on the weekend - except no stinky red onion!

Happy Monday!

Hi Biz, JP would have lox and bagels every Friday night...guess living near the Jewish neighborhood in Chicago, it was just the natural thing to eat, course Lox were cheaper back then.

Hi Roxie. I love my little record player....I think you might find them at Target. There's lots of different models...Amazon has lots of different record players. Hope you get one....they are fun. Thank you for the prayers...It would be wonderful if God healed ALL of JP's ailements....but maybe it is not in God's timing yet.
