Happy Monday Everyone! Only 19 days 'til Christmas!

Hey, New Followers....

 I'm happy to see you here!  I'll try to get around to everybody's blog and follow you back real soon.  As you can imagine, this is a busy time of year for the candle business!


Java (Never Growing Old) is up and blogging once more after having a bout with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo…..something that is terribly unpleasant.

Be sure and go by and visit or link up with Meet Me on Monday!

Here are the questions for this week.

    1.  What is your favorite kind of cheese?
Hmmm….I like cheese.  My favorites would include ~ Colby, Pepper Jack, Mild Cheddar, Mozzarella…..Did you know Mozzarella Cheese was originally made with Yak milk?  Just saying.

  1. What size is your bed?

Ours is just a regular…full size.  We have had the king size and it was nice, especially when the kids were younger and migrated our way when they didn’t feel good or a dream had awaken them.  But they finally out grew that phase and we like the full size better.

3.  What is your most overused phrase?
I have two!  Are you kidding?!!!  And…(my favorite put off phrase), “we’ll see.”  Then of course there is, "Would you please quieten down?!!!"

4.  Green or purple grapes?
Purple!  They are definitely the best.  But I like green apples.

  1. Shower, morning or night?
If it is at night, it’s a nice long relaxing bath.  If it is in the morning it is usually a quick shower.

Our Holiday Bliss this weekend consisted of lots of Christmas Music and working on Christmas cards.  The boys (plus cousins) did enjoy some cups of loaded hot chocolate.  They added whipped cream, peppermint sticks and marshmallows.....all at one time.  I stuck with hot apple cider with cinnamon sticks.

I posted another quick (and inexpensive) Christmas idea on Homemade Country Christmas


I found another free ebook that you might find interesting.


The week of giveaways continues at Frenchy's!
 The candle giveaway is still open, if you would like to go by and leave a comment.



  1. I love a nice hot bath in the evening with a good book too if I can get away with it. :)

    Have a great day!

  2. Did not know that about Mozzarella and I completely forgot about your overused phrases!

  3. I'm with you, sweet friend...purple grapes are the best!

  4. learned a bit of trivia here and the phrase about quieting down is something I use often in this house with 6 teens

  5. thanks for the links cheryl. Great q&a!! I just can't believe time is going by so quickly.

  6. hi cheryl_ thanks for following me. I'm now following you back. Hey, I don't think the prairiemaid blog was listed in your blogs... i just typed it in on the search, but just wanted you to check on that. Thanks for listing your blog address in your comments.

  7. It sounds like your weekend was full of holiday cheer! Thanks for letting me get to know you better through your questions.

  8. A quick shower in the mornings, long hot baths with some tea and a good book in the evenings..ahhhhh....relaxation at its best.

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. The dinner theater was a lot of fun. Most were really card tricks and you could almost make out what and how it was done. He was good as well as a comic. He only did one, what I would call 'magic trick' and no way I can explain it. I know the girl that was his "assistant" wasn't part of the show as she was with us. So.....yeah. But they were not stingy on the food as my belly could attest to afterwards LOL

    Have a blessed week.

  10. I remember when my kids were young and they would ask about something I would say "maybe" or "we'll see." They told me one day that when I say "maybe" that means yes and the other means no! Well, who knew! Those kids sure do pay attention!
