Secrets are safe.......


My sister, Judy, gave me this cute little woodblock for Christmas. It made me chuckle because, yes, I often cannot remember my secrets or secret hiding places. And neither can many of my friends. LOL!

The woodblock was wrapped in brown paper and tied with the red and white woven ribbon. Judy wraps her gifts with such care that I almost hate to unwrap them.......but I did. And, after I unwrapped the package, I put the ribbon around the woodblock and liked the look.  Then I snapped this photo, I took it up to my sewing room and set it on my bookcase shelf. There it will remind me that my secrets are safe. I can't remember if I have any secrets right now, but if I do.........they're safe.  :-)
I have a few more Christmas photos to share but I am a little behind in my blogging right now. I am enjoying this start to the new year........chatting on the phone with family, visiting family, planning some church events and library projects, having friends out for a potluck, watching 1930's John Wayne movies with my husband, sewing rows together on my Mary E crazy quilt, doing some mending chores, cleaned the bathroom cupboards, made more fudge, catching up on sleep, and sooooooo........I just haven't had time to think about blogging.  I'll get back in the rhythm of blogging soon. Til then, have a good week!

I like sweet gifts like this one...so fun to place things around your home that make you smile and remember friends & family. Sounds like you have a great start for the new year: enjoying each day and the people who are dear to you!

So true!!! I can not remember the 'safe place' I put things. I make lists and lose the list. ;)
Oh well.....at least the secrets are safe.

I love that saying! At work I have to keep a ton of user names and passwords for re validation of Medicare and other insurance. Even when I write them down I can't remember where I saved them, let alone what they are! Being 55 is not what I thought it would be. Anyway, I have thought about you and your mom and family all week and in my prayers. I hope things are on an even track.

I Love the gift she gave you. Enjoy the little things because one day they will be the big things.

That is so funny, and so true! As I get older, my failing memory sometimes aggravates me- but then I realize that there are things I am better off NOT remembering anyway, ha ha.
