Good Noon!
Marcela just left so the house is temporarily clean.  She was going to come at 8 this morning, but texted me and said she was coming at 9 instead.  Fine by me!
Yesterday I didn't even get out of bed until noon!  I was playing on the PC rather than sleeping, but I did feel like a lazy bum.  Got my shower and I was amazed at how much better I felt than I had the day before or that morning.  Guess I needed a lazy day, but of course now I'm behinder than ever!   Best I get it in gear.  Tomorrow morning I have an appointment with the Periodontist and afterwards we plan to go out for lunch, so it will be another day when I don't get anything done.

Hooray ~ your tree is up and looking lovely, I'm sure!
Thank you for saying ours is nice.  I really loved our 'old' trees, so big and full, but honestly we barely have the steam to do the smaller one these days.  Pathetic.  It took us three days just do decorate this one.  It looks good from outside, and it really is big enough for just us.  Still, I remember the old ones ~~~  
Mike and I are firm believers that the more ornaments and lights the better, but sadly we don't seem to have the stamina to put all of our lovey ornaments on even a smaller tree anymore.    My niece Catherine and her husband used to pick the homeliest looking trees, I always wondered if they chose the ones they felt sorry for.  Then they would put a train set under it, but only a VERY few ornaments on it.  It looked like a Charley Brown tree ~ lol.  I even gave them a couple boxes of ornaments one year, but apparently they actually liked it the way it was.  Obviously Mike's and my trees were the opposite ~~ until recently.
Change is good, right??  Lol.    

I hope you can find the remote for the tree. It would be a pain plugging it in and unplugging it all  the time.

My old Christmas Card program no longer works either, so I'm doing it in a word document.  Talk about a major pain in the tush!

I hassled with the decision about sending cards this year too.  We did so little that would be of interest to anyone that I didn't put together a letter, but I did decide to send cards to those we always hear from, this year anyway.

Chrystie has been really 'needy' lately, and I'm indulging her.  As long as she doesn't sneeze all over me, I kinda like cuddling her, too.  It seems when she gets on me and I wipe her nose right away, we don't get so much sneezing, so we're both happy.   Shogun waits until morning, early morning, and then comes and gets under the covers to cuddle.  I have mentioned how cold Mike keeps it, right?  lol

Thank you so much for yet another lovely tag!!

Quick note.  The CD came tonight!  I can't wait to listen to it, but I haven't had a chance yet.   I may be very late posting tomorrow.  I have a Periodontal appointment in the morning (ugh) and then several things on our agenda.    I just wanted to let you know that it got here so you wouldn't worry.  I really can't wait to play it!   Thank you!!!!

I have had a very lazy day.I slept late (nearly 9:30) and then kept falling asleep in my chair.  I finally got more awake around noon.  Still then I did nothing the rest of the day.  Just sat on my ass catching up on email etc.

We both were lazy...mom worked on a jigsaw puzzle.  She did go to TOPS but they cut the meeting short and sent everyone home early as we were having freezing rain that was turning to snow.  But it now seems to have come to nothing.  We will see what happens over night.  

We need to pack up the gift for my brothers family and get them in the mail. Found boxes for all the jewelry today.  So I will work on wrapping the gifts and fitting them into the box.  Also find the cards in my room which means putting some things away and making room. Once I find the cards I can get going on them.  I could start with what we have and look later.  Will see how that goes.  We have not even talked baking or candy making yet.

Good luck at the periodontist and enjoy your reward lunch. New tags again.

Hugs,

Good Morning and Happy Hump Day!

Yesterday I put another appointment with the Periodontist behind me for six months.  Of course it doesn't excuse me from still going to the dentist.  It seems to me that these appointments should be once every 10 years or so, but somehow "they" don't agree.  Ha.

Then when I came home I saw that I had missed a call from a friend from California in the other group who wanted an update on another friend who is having some horrid health issues, so I called her back and we talked.

Then it was time for my Soap and afterwards we went out for a very early dinner at the Bonefish, then came home and watched the Patrick Stewart 'Scrooge', one of our favorites.

I still didn't make a serious dent in my Christmas card writing but today we need to run some errands and get Mike's sister and bil's gift off.  Since Netflix won't let us give a gift card, we got an American Express gift card and will make it very clear that it can't be used for any other purpose.  (As if we have any real control over that ~ ha!)   

Laine's last gift should arrive today, and I'm hoping we will hear from her without my giving in to my temptation to ask.     We also need to get some more Eggnog!  Can't celebrate Christmas without Eggnog!   Ho! Ho! Ho!

Mike's present will be delivered tomorrow between 2 and 6 PM.  I paid extra to have them deliver it inside, but they won't set it up or take the packaging.  If I hadn't paid extra, WE would have to take it off of the truck!   I mean, Seriously!   It's from Wayfair.  Have you ever ordered anything from them?  Reviews are good, and shipping is free ~~~ as long as you don't mind hoisting furniture off of a truck and hauling it inside!  It's not all that big, but would be way beyond Mike and me. I guess free shipping would be fine for smaller things that could be left on your doorstep.   I plan to take before and after pictures to share with you.  I kinda hated to give it to him or even let him know about it before Christmas, but he's excited so I don't think it will "spoil Christmas"for  him.       Again, this is a fairly small thing, least you think I bought him something major. 

Still watching those Mental Deficients blocking roads and demonstrating around the country.  I'm so glad they are having so much fun while blocking major streets and highways so decent people can't get to work or home from work and emergency crews can't get where they need to go.   I'll bet none of them can even express what they hope to accomplish ~ other than Par-tay.   Around here the school kids come out during the school day to "protest", but interestingly never after school hours or on the weekends when it cuts into their other play time.  If they were being raised by wolves instead of aging hippies they would be more intelligent and better behaved.        Hey, you haven't had a sour note from me for DAYS.  You probably missed my rants.  Just be grateful.  I could start on the new Spending Bill.  Ho! Ho! Ho!   

My niece Mary Ann has been through two days of her radiation treatment and it sounds like it's going well.   Two treatments a day, about an hour each.  She and Catherine are staying at Hope Lodge for free, which is wonderful, and they even did some Christmas shopping.  Thank you for your prayers for her, too!   

Missing a day and then I get not only one but TWO lovely presents!  Thank you so much!!

We played our new CD last night and really enjoyed it.  Now I don't have it sitting here in front of me so I can't remember which song I liked best.  I think it was track 6, but I really liked the one you did, too.  (Clearly I shouldn't have started writing this without the CD in my hand ~ lol).   The case got broken enroute and I was a bit concerned, but the disc played perfectly and I will find a new case and transfer the cover page to it.   What a wonderful surprise and great gift!   Please tell Josh how much we are enjoying it, too.  You have every reason to be proud of him.  Thank you so much, from both of us!   

Hooray ~ you got your room sorted out and found your cards!  Now you can start.   Did you do a Christmas letter?    I didn't this year.  We just didn't have that much to share that might be interesting.

It will feel so good to get the gifts off, won't it?  We're waiting to send Mary Ann and Benji's until after she gets home from Hope Lodge, but otherwise we will be done, too.   Now if I can just get the rest of the cards done.

I don't know what to wish for regarding Jordan, other than that this fun experience is something he really doesn't want to repeat and he learns from it.   

Love you much,

Border by Dorothy

Good Morning.

Yesterday I did get MOST of the Christmas cards written and in the mail.  I still have a few left and I should be able to get them done without a problem.  Whew!  The house is clean (temporarily), the decorations we are going to put up are up, the cards will be finished and I'm not baking.  I should be able to just sit back with my feet up and wait for Christmas, right?  So why do I still feel so stressed?  I know I'm forgetting something.   I don't have Mike's gifts wrapped, but I don't have many more for him AND this year he apparently got all of my gifts wrapped, so the pre-wrapped boxes I made before are all mine this year.  Not that the gifts I have will necessarily fit into them, but surely some of them will.   I think I'm so used to being stressed that I don't know how NOT to be.  LOL

We did get Eggnog yesterday after we mailed the cards and Marianne and Bill's gift, and shared a cup in front of the tree last night.   Ho! Ho! Ho!

Mike's OpenBeforeChristmas present should come late this afternoon.  I got both an email and a phone call confirming it, which makes me feel better.  I hate not knowing "for sure".  

The last of Laine's three gifts (the little ornaments) was delivered last night and we still haven't heard from her.   I need to be much more patient.  She's working full time and finishing up her college work so she can graduate and I suspect she has a social life, too.    Being a Professional Worrier, though, well ~~~ you know.  If I don't hear in a few days I will ask, though I hate doing that.  It's like asking for a Thank You.  

Apparently Hope Lodge is part of the American Cancer Society support program.  What a wonderful thing for people coping with cancer treatment to have somewhere to stay so they don't have to drive long distances to and from treatment, or pay for a hotel.  I'm so very glad there is one where Mary Ann is going.  I was so worried bout her driving back and forth for two hours every day for six weeks ~ in Wisconsin Winter!

Have a great day!

  Winter!

Sunny day here is Fond du Lac.  Package mailed out yesterday.
Yay, something accomplished.  Then I printed the card mailing labels and hit the wrong template.  So I wasted the labels I had and need to get more and black ink cartridge for printer.
Suz was going to go last night but mom told her to wait till today.  So another day wasted as far as cards are concerned. 
I will write them and seal them and keep them in order and add the labels later.  No, no Christmas letter here either.  Nothing of interest here, though mom did take that trip this summer and could write about that.
Josh is coming over to take recycling out of the house.  With so many ackages coming in the mail we have a lot of recycling.
He said he wanted 2 sammiches with decent meat on them.
LOL, we use just 2 ultra thin slices.  But I had to text him and ask if a great church pizza would do as we were out of lunch meat.  He said "Deal!".
I love Josh, but I like it when he sings a bit smoother.  
He was singing a country song in a low voice when they were decorating and I just loved it.  But as he says...it is not him.
Sometimes his voice is a bit too nasal with the gravel and that I do not really care for.  My favorite is Leo T.  That is his grandfather on the Schneider side.  He is old Wisconsin German and has a lot of "quaint" sayings...one of which is....
Looks like she wants to rain outside...and that is the line Josh uses in the song.  At first he called the song that but changed it to Leo T so that his grandpa had a song named after him.
I will have to look at mine to see which one it is that is your favorite.
I have been making all these tags as a contest in my CDO Diamond group.  Contest one was to decorate a stocking they provided.  Had to be done by the 10th.  contest 2 was to complete 6 tutorials and 4 mini challenges by the 15th.  I just have 1 mini challenge left and I am going to attempt a pixel pic.  I have never done them before and do not know if I have to know how before doing the tut or the tut explains it.  We will see.  This tag was a template challenge.  The 2 others on this page were tutorials.  I love how this one turned out...the tut was not animated but it screamed animation to me, lol.

Good Morning!

It's Friday ~ we've made it through another week.   I posted Mike's early present, and therefore "how we spent our Thursday" in another thread. ;-)  
Aside from that, I didn't accomplish much.  Maybe today?  Maybe not ~ lol.

We watched the 200th episode of Bones and the final episode of Gracepoint last night.  I wasn't in the mood for the so-very-different Bones. I probably should watch it again.  Gracepoint was good.  I had tried to watch the British version last year and just couldn't get into it.  The American version I enjoyed, possibly because I had already tried to watch the British version.  It was certainly different and David Tenant (Dr Who and Bartie Crouch Jr from Harry Potter) was very unlikable.  Interesting how the characters grew on you.  I had anticipated "who done it".  Can't say I'm entirely satisfied with the way it ended, but that actually kicked it up a notch in a way.

Ah, what an exciting life I lead when the bulk of my conversation is a TV show that probably nobody else watched.  LOL



I LOVE my new tag ~ and the border that goes with it!  Thank you so much!   I am beyond spoiled!  

I still have a few cards to write that I should have done yesterday.  I have the feeling that many others are waiting to see if they get a card from us before they send one.  Maybe that should tell me it's time to stop sending most of them.  We'll see.  We have received several and look how late you and I are, so I shouldn't attach motives to others.

Of course as I write this, I'm in the bedroom and Josh's CD is in the Family Room, so I still can't tell you the name of the song I liked the best.   I was going to ask you if he actually wrote the songs as well as performed them, but you have now made it clear that he did.  I am soooo impressed!

Have a lovely day!

Just passing by with some News and Views....

The News ~~ I got a joyful text from Mary Ann saying, and I quote, "I'm DONE! Yay!!!!"  smiley106  She had to take a couple of pain pills before her last treatment, but she was done, and on her way home and she sounded just a wee little bit happy about it.  I suspect she can't get the smile off of her face!

I told her that I had looked up Hope Lodge and for the first time in a long time I felt like donating to the Cancer Society.  She said you can donate directly to Hope Lodge in Marshfield, so that's what I'm going to do!   She said what a blessing it was for people going through Cancer treatment.

Thank you for your prayers for her.


The Views ~~~ I was flipping through channels and landed on TMZ.  I've never watched it, but I stayed a few minutes out of morbid curiosity.   They were talking about the parents of "Honey Boo Boo".  I've heard of her, but never actually seen that show either.   Good great Lord! Absolutely unbelievable.  

Then they went on to talk about someone else, and I realized (not for the first time) how completely out of the mainsteam I am.  No wonder I'm not in the "Acceptable Demographic".  I didn't have a clue who anyone was, but apparently they are important.   LOL


And so it goes . . . .

TMZ can be fun to watch.  But not knowing anyone sucks.  That is how I feel when I watch the movie and music awards...I do not know who anyone is any more.  Honey Boo Boo is disgusting.  The family are just pigs.  And now with the mom dating the pedophile that raped one of her daughters and blatantly lying about it has shut any doors I had open for that show and probably the shows door too.  She should have Alana (Honey Boo Boo) taken away from her since she exposes her to the pedophile all the time.
We are watching White Christmas on AMC.  It is so beautifully colored and vibrant.  I can sing all the songs along with them, lol.  Mom says she does not recall all the practice dance scenes but I told her that they have always been there, lol.  
I got the labels printed and a little note to put in some cards about moms trip this past summer to see Leigh in Arkansas and her siblings in Kentucky.  I could fit 4 on a page, lol.  But that was as far as I got.  I intend to get them all written and ready to go tomorrow.  
I shopped at Kohl's online for all the babies.  I had wanted to make them all hats but as usual I run out of time before I even start.  I also forgot all about a nativity set I am supposed to paint for my sister Diane.  I do not think it will be too hard.  They are Precious Moment figurines and there are little stickers for the eyes.  So as soon as I get the cards done I will start with that.  Hope I can finish it, lol.  Anyway, Kohl's has a line called Kohl's Cares and the proceeds go to charity.  They have lots of Disney plushies and books for $5.00 each.  So I got 4 Micky Mouse totes, 4 plushies with coordinating books.  They are all too little yet except Finn, but they will have them when they are ready for them.  I got standard story books for the babies....Dalmatian Plushie with 101 Dalmatians book, Simba Plushie and The Lion King book and Dumbo with Dumbo book, lol.  For Finn I got Pluto and a book about Mickey and friends that is a dry erase book and you have to find things and mark them.    I thought he might enjoy that.  
Todays tag was a scrap kit challenge.  I had to colorize my tube to match the kit.  Thank goodness, PinUp Toons allows you to do that.  Her outfit had been coral.
Well, that's it from me tonight.
Hugs,




PS....Did you notice that Josh signed your CD?  It is not very readable, lol.

12/13/14
Today is the last sequential date of the year.  Make it special!

We've had temps in the 50s and 60s here, but tonight it's supposed to drop over 20 degrees and snow tomorrow!   I doubt that it will last to give us a White Christmas, but you never know. 

I was going to color my hair tomorrow, but I just realized I don't have any color.  I was sure I did.  Looks like a trip to Walgreens for me today.

 Mike is loving his new "Christmas Night Stand" ~~ for now.  We'll see if it stays big enough or not.  Ha.  We were looking for a lamp for him there, but with a very small footprint.  He commented that it looks so good now that the convenience of a lamp might not be worth it.  His call. ;-)  

I did make an online donation to the American Cancer Society last night, but while I was on the site for Hope Lodge in Marshfield, when you filled everything in, I'm not at all sure it didn't just go to the Society rather than that individual Hope Lodge.  I really couldn't tell.  I guess it shouldn't matter, but it does.  Giving to large organizations never makes me feel good.  I don't want to give from my Retiree's funds to buy a bigger fancier private jet for the head honchos or contribute to a 7 figure salary for the CEO.  Ah, well. 

Good for you getting your labels printed and LITTLE notes to enclose rather than the whole Christmas letter.  I still have a few to get out.  I am moving slower than slow, and I'd better get it in gear!

The gifts you got for the babies sound perfect!  I'm through buying but now I have to do some wrapping.  Normally that wouldn't be a big deal ~ I actually love wrapping ~ but given how I'm letting everything get so behind, I can see putting myself in a crunch if I'm not careful.   Ho! Ho! Ho!

I love the new Pink Tag, and of course the border.  Thank you!!!

OMG, No!  I hadn't noticed that Josh signed our CD!  That makes it even more special.  I'm so glad you pointed it out for your near sighted friend!  I love it!

Have a great 12/13/14!!

Well, for some reason, I cannot paste a border here.

The only thing that shows up is the  "write here".  Never had

this issue before.  Kind of irritating, lol.

I got all the Christmas cards done.  All the family and friends

ones anyway.  Still have a group that sends them to go.  Took

me most of the day, lol.  I had 80 Christmas stamps and there 

are only 7 left.  I probably have 20 more cards to go. lol.  I 

told mom to get 100 but she said 80 was enough.  Dang.  Now 

I will have to use regular stamps...it's just not right, lol.  I will

finish up the other cards tomorrow and maybe wrap some 
'
presents.  Then it is time to think about baking.  Hard to do

since I am trying hard to not eat sweets.

I am glad to hear that Mike is loving his gift.  There are a

lot of desk lights that have a small footprint and the bottoms

are weighted so they do not fall over easily Blessed Sunday.

Todays tag was a mask challenge.

Hugs,

Not there yet, but it's going to 'begin to look a lot like Christmas' around here, or so they say.    Yesterday we were in the low 60s.  Today we're heading for a "High" of 39!  Snow should start any minute.  It's already snowing in the High Country.  

Yesterday I finally finished the Christmas cards and we got them in the mail and we made a Liquor Store run.   Mike wanted to have a Liquor Store delivery but I wouldn't let him.  Our neighbors would think we were preparing for a party, and when it didn't materialize, that the old Hermits were serious lushes.  Lol    Actually, we needed some Cognac for the Eggnog, and some wine, and a bottle of what Scrooge's Nephew called "The Fifth Essence of Christmas" ~~ Port.    How can you celebrate Christmas without The Fifth Essence?   (Don't ask me what the other Four are ~ lol)  

In spite of not allowing "Poor Mike" to have a delivery, you can order everything from the store on line and they have it ready for you, so all you have to do is go to the courtesy counter and pick it up.  They even carry it to the car for you ~~ or for me, in this case, because I thought I ought to volunteer.    

Sooooo, except for wrapping Mike's presents, we're done.  We should be able to just sit back and enjoy!   HOORAY!     I need to put my hair color in today, but that's about the 'it'.   

smiley1
I love my new tag!  Of course I love all the things you make.  I'm definitely enjoying your challenges!  Thank you!

Congratulations on getting your cards done!  Isn't that a good feeling?  Of course I only had about half as many do write as you did, but I sure felt good finally getting them out.  This may be the latest I've ever been, or close to it.

Have a lovely day!

Hello.
 Can you believe it's just 10 days until Christmas?!  Are you ready?

Nice, low key SNOW day yesterday here.  We didn't get nearly as much as we'd been told to expect, and what we did get stayed on the grass but not on the pavement.  Couldn't ask for more.  I just hope it stays until tonight and we can drive around the neighborhood and get some snow pictures.  It is only supposed to be in the low 40s today.   Snow advisory has been lifted for Thursday, too, which is a very good thing because that's trash and recycle day. 

I did get my hair color in, so that was a good thing, too.




Have a great day!

Sorry I missed a day...I was whupped. Cards are completely done.  Well over 100 cards. My sister will take them to the Post Office tomorrow as 8 of them need to go to other countries.
4 to England or UK, 2 to Belgium, 1 to Finland, 1 to South Africa.
I also wrote out the 15 for mom to take to TOPS.  I only think I missed sending 2 because we have no addresses for them.  I hope my goal of no returned cards is met this year, lol.  I do have several cards set to go if we get any from anyone we did not send to.  We got one from the neighbors across the street and I refuse to mail a card for across the street.  I think I have their email and will send one that way.  I am doing a few email cards.
Glad you made a booze run and got your hair colored.  Just some wrapping yet, lucky you.  I still need to paint a nativity set and make my cookies and candy.  I hope mom and I are up for it.  Plus I have all my gifts to wrap.
I am watching Disneys animated A Christmas Carol.  It is fabulous.  Not the one with Mickey and the gang but the one where Jim Carey is the voice of Ebenezer and all the ghosts.  Very dark version.  Scary like the original.  Mom does not like it, none of the versions, where as I like them all.  So am watching this one while she is at her TOPS Christmas party.  She is having steak while I eat brats and spaghetti that were frozen.  Little butter and parmesan on the spaghetti and it was great.  
Todays tag is made on a whim.  I got the Holly Hobbie tube and I love her.  So had to use it.  I made the frame using preset shapes.  I loved how it turned out.  Fun choosing how to fill it in and all.  Cannot share in some groups as it is not copyright compliant. lol.
I think I will bake tomorrow if I have everything I need.  When we get the baking  and candy making done, then we can get the kitchen all sorted.  I want to make my pecan fingers and fudge balls.  Mom will make fudge and divinity.  Also will start painting.
Tonight I do nothing, which is lazy but I do not care, lol.
Hugs,
