He held me in his arms when I cried, He tried not to cuddle me when I was in trouble,

He showed me how to be silly and not give a darn what other people thought of me,

He Held My Hand As I Took My First Steps,

And Let Go When I was Ready To Run.

He Held My Hand As WE Walked Down the Aisle,

And Let Go To Give Me Away,

He has always been there for me. Smiling and laughing with me,

He works so hard to give his family anything they need or want,

He always embarrassed me with his dorky moves,

And would always sing off key and very loud,

But He always made us smile and we loved him no matter what.

He is My Daddy,

And I Love Him.

He still holds me in his heart when I call him crying, and has to fight the urge to come get me when he feels I'm in trouble. He still holds my hand when we go for a walk, and I never want to let go. He still embarrasses me with his dorky dance moves, but I still laugh and smile. He is my Daddy, And I Love Him!

Busy Little Bee.

I've been a busy little bee lately.
 I've rearranged the living room and have been cleaning and simplifying like crazy.

 My Darling Chris and I are celebrating our 1 Year Anniversary this weekend, and we are having some friends over for a pic nick. So I am trying to make the apartment as big as I can incase we get rained out. The Kitchen has the stay the way it is, Unless I tare out the cabinets.

 But the living room, Now that was a job well done.

It looks bigger, and more comfortable. I am really liking the new set up.

I may not have a  balcony or a terrace but I love having the table by the windows so I can get the breeze as I work or eat. :)

I had thought about moving the book shelf, but it's too heavy and the only place it would really go is in the corner where the roof leaks. And I don't want water dripping on my books or sewing machine.

I like having Chris' China stuff up. It makes a good accent wall, and Chris loves to talk about his month in China where he made the scroll and got the sward in a gift shop when he saw the Terracotta Soldiers.

No T.V. yet. But our laptops work just fine. :)

Plenty of walking and foot room now. And if you sleep on the couch, if the semi trucks and police car sirens don't wake you up, the morning sun will. :)

Honey Oat Bread. After it raised I drizzled some Honey on top then some oats then baked it!

As I worked, the smell of bread filled the whole apartment! Chris got home and thought I had some beer. Silly boy.

 Well that has been my week so far. Next to rearrange is the bed room. :)

 Have a wonderful day.

Many Blessings.
