My Garden Angle Is Happy...For The Moment

Thanks to all of you who had suggestion about what I should do with my gift from Fay. I bought a couple of plants and placed them and my little angel with my geranium and created a garden of sorts. Now she is happy and looks right at home.

(If you all have the time, you should go over to Proverbs 30:2 and read what "Walter" had to say about my gift. I laughed so hard.) For every one's information, I happened into Hobby Lobby the other day and saw several of these yard decorations on the shelf, so I know it is not a secondhand gift. But I appreciate every one's imagination and input.

But now I'm sad and so is my angel. Rick got notice yesterday that as of January 1 we will be "between storms" again. That means we will be heading back home for a while (which is good) but my little potted garden won't make it in the frigid temperatures and blustery winds that are characteristic of January in the Texas Panhandle. I will probably leave my potted garden here for Fay, and I'll take my angel with me, to add to another garden on another day in another place.

I will be taking a little break from blog reading and writing.

This afternoon I HAVE to finish making the corsages for Kaleena's wedding then take care of other little "wedding chores." I need to get my bags packed and then the camper packed and ready for travel. I plan to leave here on Saturday or Sunday and head for home with a stop over in Houston to see Kaleena. Rick will fly home in time for Christmas then return to Mobile to work through the end of the month. For me and my girls, the week between Christmas and the wedding will be full of flowers, cake, punch, tulle, dresses, hair appointments, etc.

Rick will hook on to our home on wheels on the eve of the new year, and he plans to arrive in Amarillo on January 1. (Long fast drive.) Wedding rehearsal is Jan. 2 and then my daughter's big day is the 3rd. Whew!

If I have any time to blog between all that and spoiling the granddaughters it will be a miracle. So feel free to peek in on me and see if a miracle has taken place, but don't be too disappointed if the place seems a little abandoned. I'll miss you all, but I bet you are going to be just as busy with the blessed holiday celebrations, food, family, gifts, parties, and such. So, if we are not able to get back together until after life slows down...

Have a very Merry Christmas and a blessed and prosperous New Year!! Stay safe, keep warm, and worship the King of Kings with your whole heart through all the celebrations!

I'm so happy you found a way to display your little fairy :) Have a safe trip home and a wonderful time during the wedding preparations. You will be missed while you're away. Please return soon. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas as well!
Love and God Bless!

Thanks for the laugh! I saw your post title and started to giggle. In your post, you spelled it correctly "angel" but in the title, you wrote ANGLE. My Mom was a crafter and she had boxes and boxes of craft materials and they ALL said Angle instead of Angel, so my sisters and I call them "Angles" now. Thanks for the memories. Carol at Choose Joy

Now see that little "Angle/Angel/Fairy" thing looks real good in the garden. And it makes the most wonderful conversation piece too! :)

Drive safe! I'll be waving as you drive by on your way to Houston. I'm in Arlington. Have a Wonderful Christmas, New Year, and Wedding!

Praying for your travel safety and will be looking for more posts when things settle a bit.

What a very busy time of year. I will be praying for you as you are so busy. I was thinking about you the other day when we were in the airport waiting for Melissa and Braedyn to arrive and I was wondering if you would get to spend time with your family for Christmas. I am glad that you get to have a little time with your girls and granddaughters. And remember I put Melissa's wedding together in two days. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and May God bless you and your family in many different ways.

Okay, what can I say? I can't spell on a good day much less when I'm in a hurry and stressed!!! Thanks for pointing out my typo or misspell or mistake or... But come to think of it, maybe my "angle" (view point) is happy...for now... too. So maybe I wrote it that way on purpose, to transfer a deeper meaning. I'm such a DEEP thinker you know! Or maybe I was just testing you girls to see if you really read my titles. LOL Or maybe I just wasn't paying the least bit of attention and maybe I don't read my own titles! So should I fix it or leave it so the whole world will know I'm an idiot? Y'all let me know.
Brittney, a two day prep for a wedding sounds--not so bad. Kind of like a tornado. You didn't have to sit a worry about it and after it was all over, you hardly knew what hit ya. This wedding has been in the planning stage for two and a half years now. It will be good to have it done. The hardest part is that bride, groom, and both sets of parents are all "out of town."
Thanks for your prayers ladies. I'll be back to post as soon as I can!
