Hello Friends,

Oh my it's overcast today. Quite a grey and miserable looking morning outside. I don't feel miserable today though. I feel pretty good. I slept well, and have no aches and pains, so I was ready to face today.
It has actually been raining almost all day.  So I have not been out at all and neither has Mary. Our kind neighbour brought down our morning paper so that saved Mary getting we are blessed with good neighbours.   I decided to make a start on the Christmas cards today..and between Mary and I we got well down the list, perhaps Friday we will get Mary's list started...and finished !!   Tomorrow Margaret and Mitch come over so it will be a busy day.  Mary is going out to a local garden centre with one of the clubs she goes to so she won't be in for lunch, but will keep her some back for later.

Congratulations yesterday to our lovely Prince William on his engagement to Kate Middleton. I don't know about you all, but I think they look a lovley pair.I thought that is was so lovely of William to use his Mothers engangement ring. I just wish I could get some photographs included in the text as there have been some lovely ones in our press.  However I expect they have been flashed across the worlds press and so therefore you will have been able to enjoy them as well.   On tonights news we hear that a decision will be made before the end of the week as to the date and place that the wedding will take place. It appears that Westminster abbey is the most likely venue...

Thank you for remembering Sarah Mary, Beth and I in your prayers. Things are still very difficult for Sarah and as we love her so...difficult for us....However we continue to pray that one day soon she will come out of the deep depression that I think is holding her back...

Goodnight.....LOVE ONE ANOTHER.


  1. I had planned on getting a good way through my cards, but a little tiny interruption like my grandson whom I adore is here this week and I only got as far as getting the cards and the labels laid out so that will be done another day. I'm so glad you are feeling well and even though you have a dreary day are doing so good. I will continue to keep you all in my prayers. Especially for the depression to be lifted.

  2. First of all I have to say Sybil, I love the happy picture of you and your sisters. How positively wonderful. The weather has been absoltely horrible today! I am loving the news of Prince william and Kate also. I hope they will be very happy together! xxoo

  3. I share your good wishes for Kate and Prince William. I, too, think they look so nice together and very much in love. I do hope their marriage will be much better than Prince charles and Diana's was.
    Give Sarah a hug for me. Hope she feels better soon, and this depression goes away.
    Take care of yourself, too, and Mary.

  4. I too love the pic of you 3 sisters. So cute!
    I also agree that Prince William and Kate sure do make a nice couple. Blessings to them. That ring is beautiful!
    Have a great day tomorrow. jo in Minnesota

  5. I love the picture of you and your sisters - what a lovely picture and you all look so very happy. The true meaning of sisterhood. I hope today is a brighter day weather wise.

  6. It is to be understood that Mary will be feeling bereft and low Sybil. I hope and pray that she will climb out of this depression sooner rather than later. God bless her and keep her in good health.
    We have sunshine this morning. What a difference that makes to a person's mood for sure!
    I am looking forward to the Royal wedding. Sooner rather than later next year.
    We could all do with a good cheering up. Yes?
    Love always.

  7. Great pictures at the top of your log. You are clever getting started with your Christmas cards. The weather up here is ok just now touch wood had a few showers usually when I have decided go out and then I get soaked. Hope you and Mary are well. Love Joan

  8. Hi Sybil,
    Always so pleased when you come to visit Buttercup's. It's like some sunshine has dropped into my home. You and family are in my prayers daily, especially for Sarah. I've enjoyed the news articles on the handsome young couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton. I was late for work one day. Couldn't tear myself away from the "Today Show" and all the interviews. Hugs across the miles!

  9. Honey I was just talking about you this morning with my daughter Christi and then I find you left a comment for me. How wonderful is that. I will just have to mention you everyday.
    Glad you are better today. I think of you so often.
    I love Prince William and Kate. I think their a lovely couple. When I saw her ring the other day on the news I thought it was his mothers but I was not sure. Wow beautiful.
    Stay warm and send me your address so I can send you a Christmas card
    Love ya

  10. I am remembering you and Sarah in my prayers. I must rush to get our turkey in the oven for our feast today.... but I am sending love. Thank you for the kind love and support you send me. Hugs, Lura

  11. Hi Sybil - rather a late comment I'm afraid. Now, ofcourse, the whole world knows the Royal Wedding is to be 29th April. I can hardly wait and will be glued to the box all day.

  12. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you are all well. Great Thanksgiving and now a leisurely Friday. What a treat. Take good care and lots of hugs!

  13. my dearest sybil, so nice of you to stop by my SOMEWHERE IN TIME journal and leave your heartprints. you are such an angel, and i wish we could talk again on skype like we once did. i cannot have skype on my laptop since there isn't enough room. take care of yourself, and stay out of the rainy weather.

    hugs to you my friend.......
