Hi folks! It's currently 27 degrees in my town right now and we are expecting a few to several inches of snow tonight and into tomorrow. I am hoping for a snow day tomorrow. Call me silly, go ahead, I don't mind, but I love when Kate and I are stuck at home together! I'm pretty sure that she doesn't feel the same way but who cares! I just try to enjoy her company while I have it.
I had a lunch date today with a member of the opposite sex and he wasn't my husband. He was the perfect date for me as we both love Chinese food and he had the most perfect manners. Not to mention the great joke that he told. He had me laughing out loud I tell you.
He speaks very well but the joke was in his special language. And while I didn't understand a word of the joke, it was in fact the funniest thing I had ever heard! He is quite handsome. I was so sad that I forgot my camera but it was a spur of the moment date after all!
It's a good thing that his mother came with or I may have had to take him home with me.....

He is growing into quite the charmer just like my son, his daddy! He is definitely one of the lights of my life!
Tonight while recouping from my housecleaning gig with my feet up sitting in my recliner I was admiring one of my very favorite lamps. This is actually a night light that belonged to my mother. I had always admired it with it's little Hummingbird, and now it belongs to me. However I would love it if mom was still here and it was still at her house.
I think that it's just beautiful.
The next lamp is one that my husband bought for me for one of my birthdays. I had been admiring for weeks and was so pleased to receive it!
I love the bead work on it!
The next one really isn't very unusual but I still love it. Jake and I got it for a steal as it was discounted at Lowes. I think we paid $15.00 for it! It goes great in the dining room.
The next light is actually a string of lights that my daughter Ginny bought me for my birthday one year. They are made out of twigs and are actually meant for outdoors.
I just couldn't bring myself to put them outside only to get weathered,
so I decided to hang them from the fireplace. They make great mood lighting while watching television.
Last but not least is my most valued lamp. It has been passed down through the family over many years. It belonged to my great-grandmother, my grandmother, my mother and now me.
I've had it for over twenty years. I only wish that I knew where my great-grandmother got it from. That would be nice to know.
It still works perfectly and is VERY heavy. It is a reverse painted lamp. Jake and I have searched it with a magnifying glass and can't find any markings on it.
I intend on keeping this in the family. I don't know who will get it when I'm gone but someday after Kate is grown I suppose I will find out which child wants it the most. I am guessing that it would be my oldest daughter, Ginny as she has an appreciation for such things. But as I said, Kate isn't grown yet so only time will tell.
That was just a few of my most favorite lights.
I hope that they brought a bit of light into your life today!
