***SUGAR AND SPICE BUT NOT EVERYTHING IS NICE***



Aren't those little tiny glittery sugar cubes the SWEETEST??!!!!! i got these the 6th of December, the same day Vanessa V showed us her A Fanciful Twistwhimsical glittery BEAUTY FULL glittery pink house she made!!!**** I was geared up to start my glittery house soon!!! Friday morning brought an ambulance and firetruck across the street from where I live and that dreaded DEATH took my sweet little neighbor away!!! I always saw John and we waved at our mailboxes! His wife and him take in stray cats soOOoooOoooOO they have 13!!! I seeeeeeeeeeee some of them over here on my hill roaming, climbing trees and hunting and sometimes fighting!!! Scat! tee hee I baked 2 messes of cookies and took them over a while ago and his wife looks like she is lost. I am soO sad.....thinking of her over there by herself breaks my heart, at least she has those sweet 13 cats!!! Her daughter has an angel's voice, she'll take good care of her and I will have to get her mail now every day I think. She can't walk that well and with winter, UG!!!
O! and LOOK at those lovebirds!!!!!! We went out Saturday, December 8th to CELEBRATE their 60 years of marriage!!! I was determined to really enJOY these moments with my mom and dad. My son, Damon and his gal Natalie surprised us and joined us for a sweet dinner!!!
I'll give YOU the recipe for those M&M cookies! It is a recipe from the 80's probably!!! 70's??? Phew! Who knows, but it is old but my family LOVES em!!!

They look so real, and beautiful as well! I don't think glitter is in any food group unless it would be (snicker) roughage! I know, I'm bad! Cinda!

Hi Cinda. What a sweet and loving picture. Did I get that right - your neighbors? She will treasure this picture, I'm sure.

I'd comment on the sugar cubes but the story of your neighbor's passing distracts me.

Hugs
