Happy New Year 2010!

Right....I know I'm a little late...but Happy New Year Friends! I haven't posted in quite some time, things have been a little crazy around here. First off, thank you ever so much for all of your prayers for my sweetheart. He did real well in 16" inches of snow...only got stuck twice! But he is safe and we are fine. Two days after my mom arrived, she had a severe asthma attack, and I had to call 911. They sent an ambulance and took her to the hospital straightaway. By the time I arrived (had to drive slowly-very slowly) they had her breathing much better and in a few hours released her. She is only now beginning to breath normally. She has what is called athletic asthma? She had one episode of this kind in the 80's, but other than that, she has no symptoms at all. Isn't that strange?

As she was on the mend from the asthma, we both got dreadful colds!! Honestly!!!!

Anyway, we are both doing well now, and each of us are happy to have that mess over with before the new year.

You prayers have been so effective...my husband didn't even catch a COLD!!! He was well protected~~thank you all!

The day began at -25 degrees...this afternoon it is 1 degree. We are in a deep freeze.

I just had to get out and get the birdies some nourishment, as it has been too icy to walk on the snow here. So here are the pretty little birds, happy to have some munchies!

Blessings all in this new year, and thank you again for your prayers for my hubby!!


P.S. Also a little table runner I made while recuperating!


  1. I'm glad you and your mom are better and that hubby was well covered in prayer. The table runner is just beautiful. It looks like springtime for sure. We need something like that to look at right now. We too are in a deep freeze and being hit with lots of snow too. Driving has been an adventure for sure. Take care!

  2. Happy New Year Sharon and Family! Glad everyone can breathe and survived the crazy season. There is no way I could survive a cold Christmas now! I think it was 20degrees Celsius on the 25th and that was a little cold. Love the little bits (from the trees) on the runner.

  3. Hi there! So glad to hear your husband was safe on the road. And of course, that your mother is breathing easy now. Thank you, Lord!!

    Enjoy your loved ones, including those great dogs of yours. Such sweeties!

    Have a Beautifully Blessed New Year...

  5. Dear Sharon ~~ I love the table runner you made. And I am so glad your hubby is safe and pray that he stays that way doing his job in the snow. Thank you for your comments, but It was not my birthday, but the guy who wrote the article. I should have made that clear in my post,
    sorry about that. Had a lovely Christmas and New Year though.
    Take care my friend, Love, Merle.

  6. That runner is just adorable. I love the little flowers hanging from the tree...
    Glad everyone is doing better,

  7. So glad that your husband got through the holiday work, in fine shape.

    Sorry for the troubles, which you and your Mama have had though. Rest... Rest... Rest... And stay warm. :-)

  8. oh dear Sharon, I´m so sorry not to have come before... and so happy to hear your hubbie is now safe. I heard in the news the bad stormy situation in some places around U.S. And your mother, good to know she is doing well now. What an end of year, my darling!!! Wishing your 2010 is filled with protection from above, blessings and much happiness to you all.
    A very beautiful small quilt!!
    Lots of hugs,

  9. Glad to hear from ya ~ and so sorry to hear about your Mom ~ you were so excited to have her and she looked so happy to be with you! Happy you are both feeling better. Happy New Year to All! Judi

  10. Oh Sharon that is just too cold. We used to get weather like that, but thankfully we haven't experienced it in a few years now. I'm so sorry to hear about your mom and I know how scary that must have been.
    I adore that runner! Wow, you make beautiful things in the cold!lol
    I hope things shape up for you and that you have the best 2010 ever.

  11. Glad to hear that everyone is on the mend!

    Happy New Year!

  12. The table runner is delightful. I wish I had a little beach cottage... I would fill it with things like this. Lots of white and pale blue (I'm not even someone who particularly likes blue, but cottages demand it, don't you think?) and eclectic goodies. Clean lines, billowy sheers, YOUR quilts. Oh if only...

    Thank you so much my darling adorable Sharon for your visit to Casa Hice and wonderful uplifting comment. Really, I treasure you and your sensibility. And your friendship.

    Glad you and mom are on the mend. Stay warm!! Stay well!! Breathe easy!!

  13. Hi Sharon,

    The quilt is absolutely gorgeous! What a beautiful job you have done. Sending my wishes to you and your loved ones for a wonderful new year that effervesces with good health. I know it has been difficult lately. I will hold my positive thoughts for wellness to your family.

    Happy New Year!
