Believe me, this is not how it was around here. This is a glorious sight but nowhere near Texas.

I definitely have not been good enough to deserve a Secret Santa Elf visit. However, Santa's Elf felt different. For a day or two, I was receiving packages without names. The first package came from Oregon. This is that lovely gift.
Next, I received this lovely top. My picture in no way does it justice. I love it and fits fine.
To top all this off, I received a letter from Oklahoma. I thought it was a holiday greeting from one of my blogging friends. In actuality, it is. It was from Shabby Creations for me to select another blog design. I am trilled to receive this, but not sure if I have enough smarts to do as stated.
I may not be the brightest senior on the block, but I am good at putting two and two together. This is one of the nicest things that someone did for me that was not, or expected. The giver did it out of kindness and a good heart. I am at a loss for the right words to express my appreciation. Thank you very, very much.This act of kindness will be stored in my memory bank forever. May the New Year be kinder to us all.

The past few years I have entered Coloradolady's Secret Santa Soiree. It is a lot of fun and anticipation of what your Secret Santa will send you. Poor Santa and his reindeer nearly got too hot delivering the package. Texas is not experiencing winter weather.
My Secret Santa was Melinda Fulkerson from http://melinful.blogspot.com. Thank you Melinda for being so generous. This lady is so talented and creative. If you have not visited her blog, you are missing out She has some of the most beautiful hand and quilt work ever. Here she is with Santa making sure he has everything packed and ready to deliver her package.
She wrapped each of my gifts in pretty fabric I thought that was such a different and neat idea. When I opened the packages, I understood her reason in doing as shown below.
I have had a lot of calendars, but never one like this. So unique and different. Each month has a sewing machine in different colors.
When you are quilter, nothing is thrown away. These are strips of fabrics she used to tie my packages.
Melinda, thank you again for this lovely package filled with wonderful goodies. I can vision a child's quilt being made from this special fabric.

I thought I had seen just about everything. However, I found out real quick that I had not. Take my word, never leave anything on the stove and forget it. I went to the back of the house fooling around with my Christmas gifts. Never gave the stove another thought. I heard this loud pop, like a shot. It had to be very loud for me to hear it in the back of the house. I do not hear well. Thought it was car backfiring. Checked on that and no car around. POW, another rang out. Decided I better check things out. As soon as the kitchen came into view, I knew I was in trouble, but still not sure what happened.
I never buy but six eggs. Had these far about two days. Never like keeping them too long. I like boiled eggs. I decided to boil all six so they would not spoil. The problem was I should have checked on them sooner. I never knew eggs would explode. It was like a battle zone with eggs flying in all directions. I never had such a mess in all my days. There were eggs on everything including the ceiling. Needless to say, I missed my bed time. Took me forever to clean up all that mess and mop the entire kitchen. The pictures in no way shows how bad it was. I learned a lesson the hard boiled way.You can rest assured it want happen again.
