God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Mothers Day, eBay, and Other Stuff

Yesterday ... Mothers Day ... Mrs. Robin became the proud mother of two healthy babies   : )

Aren't they cute?  The new mommy & daddy have been busy flying to & from the nest with food for their little ones.  There are still two eggs in the nest.  I do not know if they are going to be hatching soon.  I will keep watching.  

I have been asked for my eBay ID, & some of the people who have asked me are no-reply bloggers, so I am giving my ID here.  It is lv2stitch53.  That first character is a small letter L, not a number 1. People get that confused sometimes, although it confuses me when they do   : )   I didn't get the PS charts listed yet but do have a bunch of other cross stitch charts & kits listed.  I will hopefully get the PS stuff listed in the next day or two, so if you're watching for that, keep watching   : )

The house is ready!!!  The bug guy hasn't shown up yet.  He told me he'd be here last week, then when I called this morning he said "Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday ... sometime this week."  Sigh!

I have spent hours researching realtors & this morning called the guy who has the best reviews everywhere I've looked.  He is also voted "#1 in sales" on various sites which is encouraging   : )   I talked with his assistant this morning, gave him our information, & he said Ken will give us a call.  I hope so   : )

I've also been researching places to live & thank everyone who has made suggestions to me.  John & I have maybe 3 or 4 places that are at the top of our list, but that doesn't mean we won't change our mind.  The important thing is that if the house does sell, we have several options.  

Ah ... I see it's lunch time.  I think a salad sounds good today   : )

How exciting, Shirlee! I'm praying for the sale of your house and very excited to see where you go next.

Yay on the baby birds! Did you eat some salad for me at lunch time? Best wishes and good thoughts coming your way on selling your house!

Oh, how sweet those baby birdies are with their funny bulging eyes :) I hope your home sells quickly, Shirlee--it is so lovely, that I'm sure you feel a bit bad about saying goodbye to it...

Those little robins are so cute, waiting with their open mouths!
I hope your house will sell soon (I'm sure it will!) and that you'll start a new adventure soon!
