It's getting close

I guess it is safe to say I have overdone it! I did not sleep well last night due to the mind boggling pain I am in from SLE! Systemic Lupus!So painful!I know I have been going and doing because I hate to miss out but sometimes learning to say no is something you must do!Even so I have to pick and chose my battles! With Christmas coming up I feel stressed and that does not help. Having just recently moved and taking up house keeping!!Whew! It is a lot for a well person let alone a sick one. Top that off with a bone infection and you have me!!Today I will try and maintain my sence of normalcy, whatever that is!!I have a list of TO DO's before Christmas!I may lay back down as I am in quite a bit of pain.On the plus side I have gotten a lot done with the condo. It certainly is different than a house but I am really happy here and Lloyd is as well!So off to bed I go!!Maybe I will feel revived an feel like doing something fun later!God bless~

Christmas fun!!

I especially love this~~

Yesterday my good friend Joann Vandercook had her open house!What a treat to go thru her beautiful home. It is an old Historical home that she and husband Jerry have lovingly restored. I took some photo's/ All of them are on my wall but will post my fave's here/To top it off she has her own shop outside of her house which was choc full of prims for sale. My good friend's Betty Alexander and Bridgette Swindell were there and had some of their samplers for sale, which I snagged right up. Just wanted to share my fun day with you! Lot's of prims. good food, friends and Christmas cheer!!Hope you enjoyed the tour!

Two Rivers Mansion

front porch

These were the goodes for sale/ we left with a fudge cake, fudge and cookies

I particularly loved this pewter set

This is Mrs McGavock and she wa sthe last person to live in the mansion/

nativity scene

downstairs bath/ not sure when it was built

This is John McGavock that built the home. Isn't he handsome??

Look at the stairwell and the original wall paper!!

it was so beautiful this year!!

Look at this plate of cookies/ there were 3 plates full and cider and punch~~

ladies parlor

The original log cabin Two Rivers Mansion

LLoyd and I had a fun day!!We went to Cracker Barrell for breakfast and then grocery shopping. Then we hit the Two Rivers Mansion/ It is awonderful olf mansion built in the 1800's!There is usually home baked goodes in the 1800's house but is currently under renovation and it was inside the front parlor. The original slave quarters was underneath the house and for safety concerns they no longer let you viewthat area/ It is very dark and dreary down there and the tree they used was a sparce primitive tree we all would have loved. I miss that part being open.I go every year and have not missed in 30 years, I just love all the mansions in Nashville. After the mansion we did some Christmas shopping then the boys came over and we baked cookies and I made homemade lasagna for supper. I am off to take a hot bubble bath and watch It's a wonderful Life!! Have agreat evening
