Making My Home A Haven is important to me. Sharing homemaking skills. Recipes and food. Bible Studies. This is a treasure chest of goodies. So take a seat. Have a glass of tea and enjoy. You will learn all about who I am.
As far back as my memory reaches, there has been a nice Advent Calendar to make the wait before Christmas more bearable. When I was very young, my grandmother was the person who filled up the little bags of the handcrafted advent calendar, that had been used by her children in the past. We still make use of that very Advent Calendar today.
Normally I would excitedly open the first bag, the one with the 1 written on it with golden paint to discover a sweet surprise. Most years I would receive sweets, with there being bulging bags for the 6th (Saint Nikolaus Day) and the 24th. I remember that one year I would receive pieces of a necklace that I would have to string up afterwards. I once received a little hand made doll asleep in a matchbox converted into a cozy bed, it was my Christkind (I’ll be sharing more on the Christkind on the 24th).
My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
