WOW! Over 10 inches in just a few hours... Beautiful, but such a wet, heavy snow. Now today, the sun is shining, snow is melting, but brrrrr...cold enough for me to hang around inside and get some stitching done. Hope you all are warm and snug, enjoying some sunshine and cheer on a winter day. Blessings...

Oh dear! Sure hope I can get this posted. Blogger has changed some stuff (AGAIN) so not sure how this will turn out... Anyhoo...I have a fun 2013 Five Fun Friends SPECIAL to tell you about. Robin (over at Millstone) is doing this, as are other prim friends, so here goes. The first five people who comment (from US or Canada) to this post will receive a gift sometime during 2013 warning, no advance notice..just when I get the urge to share with you. It may be a small token of friendship, a make-do, something special when you least expect it. 
There is one catch to this... YOU must PAY IT FORWARD...In other words, you must post this idea on your site and choose five people to send a gift to. It should be go your comment so I can see who my Five Fun Friends will be. Hmmm... Keep trying.. I may add a twist and increase the number of Fun Friends...

Ha!  Thought I forgot you, huh?  No way...never! 
Giles and I do hope you had a good 2012 and we pray that 2013 will be as good or better for us all!
We have several friends who are in need of prayer so get on your knees and put in a word for those who are having problems as they move into the new year.
I have worked all day to get some 'new/old' goodes on the selling blog so go take a look and let us know if you find something you must have...

Now, for that promise I made to many last year...My gift of an old and favorite recipe.  I hope you enjoy it... p.s.  Very simple!
Kraut Salad  Oh, don't make a face. 
It's awesome! (A delicious, easy and downright pretty dish)
2 cans (14.5oz each) kraut, drained and rinsed well
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 cups chopped celery
4 oz. jar diced pimento, drained
Mix all ingredients and marinate in following:

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
3/4 cup oil
Stir until well blended and pour over kraut mixture
Cover and let marinate for at least 6 hours (better if overnight) This dish keeps for several days and goes well with pork, beef or chicken.  We often serve it along with a variety of other salads.  JUST PLAIN GOOD!  ENJOY!
 p.s. give the bowl a shake now & then to keep marinade and kraut mix stirred until ready to serve.
