This week, there were SO many Christmas posts, along with a smattering of Thanksgiving. I get it! We want to share last-minute fall holiday preps to help everyone, right?

This week, I am keeping to Christmas, in hopes to help you accomplish some early planning for the first winter holiday!

Throughout the season, I’ll be sharing Christmas, winter, and everyday posts, as well… so keep them all coming!

If you weren’t featured here at MWA this week… remember…

Be sure to hop on over to My Family Thyme to check out FIVE additional features from TTA!
If you haven’t been featured at MWA this week, you just may be featured there!

Adventures at the Abode

It’s never a dull moment around here at MWA!

This week, Mom took a fall and cut the back of her head. No stitches necessary, but head injuries are never a good thing, especially for those with dementia. Mom is recovering, but is dealing with some dizziness here and there, and also more confusion. Please be praying that my sister and I will make wise decisions for what the next steps for her care will be (i.e., medications).

Because life is SO hectic for me the next 2.5 months, I’ve had to bow-out of my two home tours I was to participate in. Too many details to share here, but suffice to say, I’m hoping to get a few DIY posts out in the coming weeks, Lord-willing.

Our weekly tips will return at the beginning of the year!

Now, let’s party!
