November's Simple Life

Dearest Readers~

Life has kept me quite busy, and has sadly not permitted me to update my blog posts. I apologize for that, and the lack of pictures. Either I am too lazy to use my mother's camera (which she has kindly allowed me to use whilst I am saving {and will be saving for a very long time} for the Nikon D5000 or the Canon Rebel!:) or I do not want to go through the hassle of the pictures coming out blurry. (I think it is perhaps both!:)
Please be patient with me, while there might be a lack of pictures for awhile (except during my Christmas event). I do so miss having a fairly good camera!:(

This past weekend has greatly much fatigued me! My little niece stopped by for a weekend visit, while her mother went to Sacramento for her best friend's baby shower. A five-year-old has so much energy, which can be both physically and emotionally straining, for I woke up this morn in a very disagreeable manner, and had been suffering a head ache for the most part of the day. Thankfully it has very much subsided. Dear, little Julia is a joy to entertain, but is, at times, very hard to manage!:D

Not only have I been watching my niece (who returned home late last evening), I have also been very busy preparing my Christmas ideas, finding tutorials, and emailing my sponsors for the giveaways. I am thinking of asking some of you who may be interested in sponsoring my giveaways, for I have emailed at least five companies and only four replied, and two of those replies turned down my offer!:(

I hope you have been having a cheerful autumn Monday!

Many Blessings to you all,


  1. Hello Grace,
    That is so cool that you get to watch her.
    Will you be starting up your interviews again?
    I really enjoy them!

  2. Good afternoon Grace! I know what you mean about the strain of watching little ones. I watch my 2 year old nephew quite often, & there's little to no chance of sitting still while he's scampering about. I wanted to let you know that I'm planning a "Crafty Christmas" event on my blog & look forward greatly to being a part of your event as well as letting readers know about it on Bess' Bag. We could form a sort of partnership, perhaps! I'll be posting lots of crafty Christmas ideas starting the day after Thanksgiving. By the way you can find cute countdown tools for blogs at - I've got one at the top of my blog if you want to view a sample &/or are interested. Well, that's all! Oh, yes, autumn *wink*!
    Love ya,

  3. Hello dear Grace!! Glad to see you back on!

    Wow, it sounds like you have had a VERY tiring weekend! I love little children, but it can get rather frustrating when they are just full of energy! Thank goodness for wide open spaces... lol!
    Hey, if you still need another 'sponsor' I am still willing to help, just so long as it isn't anything too big.. lol! Just let me know and we can work it out.
    Love from your sis in Christ, Sarah

  4. The days do seem to toil away fast! I am struggling to blog as well! I totally understand the feeling of saving up for a camera, for I am doing the same thing! I am also praying about it too. :) May the Lord bless your day, and give you rest in these busy days....


  5. Dear Grace, Wow,you have been busy! Oh,I know what you mean. I babysit fairly often. Children can be tiring and they are all definitely full of much energy!
    I hope you have a lovely day!
