Good Morning

Yesterday was a productive day.  Got the laundry done and put away, recycles taken to the bin for pick up on Thursday, some notes written and several other small things taken care of.  Given how UN-productive I've been lately, I had to feel good about it all.

Almost all of our snow melted long before I could go out and get a picture with the lights and the snow.   Phooey!  I'll have to try to take a picture today looking up the street in front of us.  The houses facing North are completely snow covered, and those facing South are completely dry, just like it was in our old neighborhood.  Now we face West and get a good bit of the melting, too.  It used to be so irritating that our across the street neighbors never had to shovel snow, and we always did.


I guess I won't "brag" about my 40-something cards that I FiNALLY got out ~ lol.    Your plate is just a wee bit fuller than mine.  

I watched the Jim Carrey Christmas Carol too ~ or at least most of it.  I tuned in a bit late.   You know how Mike and I love our "Chrismas Carol"s.  There are about half a dozen we watch regularly, and some of them many times during the season.  We just never seem to get tired of them.

You are so creative.  I'm glad you have not only kept up with your PSP, but gone way beyond!  It's fun for you, and I get all the benefit!    Thank you for the beautiful tag!

I'm not doing any baking or candy making again this year.  Maybe I never will.  I don't seem to miss it, to my own surprise.  I used to love doing it.  I guess with just the two of us, it doesn't seem worth the effort and Lord knows I don't need the carbs.    I will enjoy hearing about yours and living vicariously!  

Have a Happy Day!

FIRST I WILL SAY I LOVE YOUR TAG AND BORDER.  I ALWAYS FORGET TO SAY THAT YOU HAVE BEEN USING SOME REALLY LOVELY TAGS.
I STARTED PAINTING THE NATIVITY SET TODAY ONLY TO FIND THE PAINTS ALL CLUMPY AND YICKY.  SO I HAD TO HAVE SUZ GOT TO THE STORE AND BUY ME SOME.  JUST NOW, WHILE I WAS WRITING THIS I RECALLED THAT I BOUGHT A SET OF ACRYLIC PAINTS BACK BEFORE THE FIRST BABY WAS BORN FOR PAINTING THE LITTLE ELEPHANT ON CANVAS FOR LIAM.  I COULD HAVE USED THEM BUT COMPLETELY FORGOT UNTIL NOW.  HAD HER BUY 14 DIFFERENT COLORS.  THEY ARE 2 OZ AND WERE ONLY 5O CENTS EACH.  ALSO HAD HER GET ME SOME TINY BRUSHES.  SO FIRST THING TOMORROW I WILL BE AT IT AGAIN.
I WAS A BIT IRRITATED WITH SUZ BECAUSE SHE TOLD ME SHE WOULD GO RIGHT AFTER WORK.  IT GOT TO BE SUPPER TIME AND I TEXTED HER AND SHE SAID THAT SHE HAD TAKEN THE DOGS TO VISIT HER MIL AND WOULD COME OVER TO GET ME LIST SOON.  SHE FINALLY CAME, WITH THE DOGS AND GOT IT.  WAS GOING HOME AS THE DOG
WALKER WOULD BE COMING  AND WHEN SHE BROUGHT THE DOGS BACK THEN SHE WOULD GO TO THE STORE.  SHE NEVER GOT BACK TILL AFTER 8PM.  I WASTED ALL AFTERNOON.  OH WELL.  THERE IS A GIRL THAT IS A NEIGHBOR AND SHE TAKES DOGS FOR WALKS FOR $1 A DOG.  SHE TAKES SEVERAL DOGS AT ONCE AS LONG AS THEY ALL GET ALONG.  SO RIGHT NOW SUZ PAYS HER $2 SINCE HER MIL DOG IS STAYING WITH THEM.  HER MIL IS FINALLY OUT OF HOSPITAL BUT IN NURSING HOME WITH A LONG WAYS TO GO BEFORE SHE CAN GO HOME IF EVER.
NOTHING ELSE MUCH GOING ON.  EXPECTING PACKAGES IN THE MAIL TOMORROW THRU FRIDAY.
ALL THOSE BABY GIFTS, LOL.  
MOM HAS BEEN WRAPPING, WHICH IS SURPRISING AS SHE USUALLY LEAVES THAT FOR ME TO DO.  I AM LETTING HER SINCE SHE DID NOT HELP WITH THE CARDS AT ALL.  SHE KNOWS I NEED TO WORK ON THE NATIVITY.
TODAYS TAG COMES TO YOU AS THE RESULTS OF A TUTORIAL AND MY MAKING MY FIRST EVER PIXEL DESIGN.  I MADE THE WREATH IN THE TOP OF THIS POST...I DID ENLARGE IT A BIT AS I JUST COULD NOT SEE IT  AS THEY ARE SO SMALL.  THEN WE HAD TO USE OUR PIXEL PIC IN A TAG AND THIS IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH.
HUGS,

Thought I would start your day off with a smile.   

This is a picture of the street in front of our house, showing all the houses facing North snow covered, and all the houses facing South completely dry two days later.  Those in the North Facing homes had to shovel their walks because we didn't get enough snow for the "professionals" to come.  Can I tell you how very glad we are not to have a North Facing House anymore?



Oooh, another darling tag!  Thank you.   It's been so long since I've done anything in PSP other than maybe add a name to a tube that I wouldn't know where to start, and just look at all you have learned and accomplished.

Don't forget to take a picture of the Nativity when it is finished.  It sounds wonderful.  Is that a gift from you and your mom together?   I can't remember.

We have dog walkers in our neighborhood too.  Several, in fact.  I have no idea what they charge.  Great idea for those who are working or are too gimpy to give the dogs a good walk.  It's kind of fun to see them going by the house.   One couple up the street from us has three whippets and it's fun just to watch them prance by. Others are a total mixture of all sorts of dogs.  I don't think they all live in our little neighborhood, so I wonder how far they really do walk.  

I didn't do much of anything yesterday, so I need to get in gear a bit today.  Still, we're in pretty good shape for the shape we're in.

Good luck with the Nativity!

THE STORY OF THE NATIVITY

IT IS A PLASTER NATIVITY SET BY PRECIOUS MOMENTS.

PAINTED IN PASTELS.  DIANE GAVE IT TO ME FOR CHRISTMAS

LAST YEAR, BUT SAID THE CATCH WAS THAT AFTER I

PAINTED IT, I HAD TO GIVE IT BACK TO HER.  YEAH...NICE HUH?

I FORGOT ALL ABOUT IT UNTIL I WAS LOOKING FOR SOME

ITEMS I KNEW I HAD GOTTEN LAST YEAR FOR CHRISTMAS THIS

YEAR AND SAW THE BOX SITTING THERE.  YIPES.

IT IS A ROYAL PAIN IN THE ASS.  SO MANY NOOKS AND 

CRANNIES THAT THIS POOR SIGHTED WOMAN HAS TROUBLE

SEEING.  I HAVE THE TINIEST OF BRUSHES AND STILL I

NICK THE OTHER COLORS AND AM TOUCHING UP ALL THE 

TIME AND PLASTER REALLY SOAKS UP THE FIRST 

LAYER OF PAINT SO IT IS HARD TO COVER IT UP.  BECAUSE

OF IT BEING A PAIN IN THE ASS IT IS MAKING ME VERY

IRRITATED WITH HER, LOL.  IT IS A GOOD THING SHE NEVER

COMES AROUND.  SO THAT IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING

TODAY, PAINTING AND REPAINTING AND FEELING LIKE I AM 

NOT GETTING ANYWHERE.  IT IS ALMOST 11 AND I HAVE NOT

EVEN ADDRESSED MY EMAIL...THERE WILL BE A COUPLE A 100 

WAITING FOR ME.  SIGH.....I JUST WANT TO SIT AND READ

FOR A BIT BUT I DARE NOT.

NO NEW TAG TODAY....HAVE NOT HAD ANY TIME TO PLAY. 

MOM WRAPPED MOST OF MY PRESENTS FOR ME.  ONLY A FEW

LEFT.  SOME I CAN HAVE HER DO YET....BUT NOT HER OWN.

OOHHHHH, WHIPPETS, I LIKE THEM.  SUCH NOBLE LOOKING
    
DOGS.  SUZ'S DOG WALKER IS JUST A YOUNG GIRL EARNING

HERSELF SOME MONEY.  SHE TAKES IT VERY SERIOUSLY.

DAISY AND BELLA JUST SAW THE GROOMER AND BOTH ARE

SPORTING PRETTY CHRISTMAS COLLARS.  I GAVE BELLA HERS

FOR CHRISTMAS LAST YEAR AND SUZ WENT TO WALMART AND

THEY STILL HAD THE SAME STYLE AND PATTERN SO NOW

DAISY HAS A MATCHING ONE.  THEY REALLY ARE CUTE

TOGETHER AND GET ALONG WELL.  IF JUNE DOES NOT GET 

TO GO HOME AGAIN, I THINK SHE WILL STAY FOREVER WITH

SUZ AND JERRY.

GOT WORD FROM JORDAN THAT HE WILL BE IN JAIL FOR 

CHRISTMAS.  PO SAW HIM TODAY AND TOLD HIM HE WILL

BE IN AT LEAST TILL HIS NEXT COURT CASE WHICH IS

JAN 5 OR 6....SOMEWHERE IN THERE.  IT IS A SHAME, BUT

AT THE SAME TIME....I HOPE THIS IS REALLY HITTING HIM

HARD AND THAT HE HAS AND WILL CONTINUE TO LEARN

HIS LESSON.  HE STILL TAKES MEDS FOR HDAD AND HE HAD 

RUN OUT OF HIS NIGHT TIME MED.  SO SUZ WENT AND GOT

IT AND TOOK IT TO THE JAIL TO DROP IT OFF BUT THEY 

WOULD NOT ACCEPT IT.  ONLY WHEN THEY FIRST COME IN

CAN YOU BRING MEDS FROM HOME.  AFTER THAT, THEY

HAVE TO BE GOTTEN FROM THE JAILS PHARMACY.  SUZ

ASKED HOW MUCH AND THEY SAID THEY HAD NO CLUE,  

BUT ONCE SHE GETS THE BILL SHE CAN SEND THE INFO

TO HER INSURANCE TO TRY AND GET PAYMENT.  SHE SAID

THEY ARE NOT GOING TO PAY FOR IT AS THEY JUST PAID 

FOR WHAT SHE PICKED UP.  SHE KNOWS THE COST WILL 

BE OUTRAGEOUS.  I THINK THEY ARE ALL LEARNING A

LESSON.  I HOPE.

WELL, I AM OFF TO ADDRESS THE EMAILS.

HUGS,

  Ho! Ho! Ho!   Happy Thursday!
Yesterday was a very nice, very low key day for us, and in the late afternoon we went to the Czech Restaurant, Golden Europe, for dinner and brought home enough for tonight's dinner too.  You know how I love a meal that keeps on giving. 

Today is Trash/Recycle Day and we got everything to the curb last night. 


Our weather forecast is all over the board, from "in the 50s through Christmas" to "rain and snow starting on Monday and snow for Christmas.  I guess we'll just wait and see what happens.

Oh, goodie.  I see my text is scrunching together again.  What causes that?!  It's so irritating!

smiley7


  So now you know what they mean by "The sunny side of the street" ~ lol    This was just a skif of snow and as you see, it's still there and the folks on the Shady side had to shovel because there wasn't enough snow for the 'professionals' to come and do it this time.    If we got a foot, it would be basically the same ~ the folks on the Sunny side might not even have to shovel, and those facing North will have snow until Spring!   I am sooooo glad not to have a North facing house anymore, even though we do have people to shovel for us when we get 2 inches or more.

Hmmmm.  That's an interesting gift concept from Diane ~ lol.    You do get the fun of painting it, but ultimately she gets the pleasure of having it.  Clever.  Ha!

How neat that your mom wrapped your presents for you!  I know usually it's the other way around, but with this painting project you would really be under the gun to get it all done.

How will Suz feel about her mother-in-law coming to live with them if she does?  

I feel bad about Jordan.  What horrid holidays for him AND it's hard on the whole family not having him there with you.   I really hope that he finally 'gets it", that his actions have consequences.   I hope something good really does come out of this, still, it's pretty Bah!  Humbug!

Good luck getting everything done!    Sorry about the scrunchy text.

How funny! My text doesn't look scrunched in my post.  It sure did as I was typing!   Sometimes it's the opposite ~ it looks fine while I'm typing, and scrunches when it posts.   I think the universe is conspiring to drive me crazy.  Too late ~ That ship sailed a long time ago.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

WE ARE ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE STREET AND WE GET THE

SAME THING.  OUR SIDE WILL BE CLEAR AND ACROSS THE STREET

THEY WILL STILL HAVE SNOW.  OUR GRASS TURNS GREEN FIRST TOO.

CANNOT HARDLY SEE TONIGHT.  BEEN PAINTING ALL DAY AND MY EYES

ARE NOT READJUSTING TO THE OTHER DISTANCES FOR SIGHT.  TV IS

BLURRY AND SO IS COMPUTER.  SO WILL NOT BE ON LONG.

RIGHT NOW WE ARE DEVASTATED.  SO MUCH GOING ON.

1.  SUZ MIL HAD MOVED TO A NURSING HOME, BUT NOW HAS

HAD A STROKE AND IS BACK IN THE HOSPITAL.  THEY COULD NOT

GIVE HER THE SUPER CLOT BUSTER BECAUSE SHE HAS BLEEDING 

PROBLEMS.  SO THINGS ARE NOT LOOKING GOOD THERE.

2.  JOANNE'S FIL IS NOT GOOD AND THEY DO NOT THINK HE 

WILL MAKE IT TO CHRISTMAS.

3.  JORDAN HAVING TO REMAIN IN JAIL FOR CHRISTMAS.

4.  WORST OF ALL, HAD A PHONE CALL FROM JOANNE TO TELL 

US THAT JOSH IS ON A 72 HOUR PSYCH HOLD.  SEEMS HE TOLD 

FRIEND HE WAS GOING TO COMMIT SUICIDE.  THIS FRIEND
 
TOLD THE POLICE OR THE POLICE LIAISON OFFICER AND THEY 

CAME AND TOOK HIM TO THE PSYCH WARD AT THE HOSPITAL.

 JOANNE HAS TALKED TO HIM AND HE HAS BEEN HIDING HIS 

DEPRESSION.  SEEMS HE THINKS HE IS LETTING HIS DAD DOWN.  

I DO NOT KNOW IN WHAT WAY.  HIS DAD IS PROUD OF HIM.

HE ALSO CANNOT KEEP A GIRL FRIEND.  THESE ARE HIS CONCERNS 

AND I AM SURE THERE ARE MORE.  HE HAD ALWAYS BEEN SO VERY

SENSITIVE AND HAS A LOT OF EMPATHY.  HE HURTS WHEN 

OTHERS HURT.  HE IS AFRAID OF WHERE HE IS AS THERE ARE 

SOME REALL "CRAZIES" THAT MAKE HIM NERVOUS.  JOANNE IS

TRYING TO GET HIM OUT AND INTO COUNSELING.  MY HEART

HURTS.  HE USED TO TALK TO ME ALL THE TIME AND TELL ME

WHEN THINGS BOTHERED HIM.  BUT HAS NOT IN A COUPLE

YEARS NOW.  I THOUGHT HE JUST WAS GETTING TOO OLD

TO SHARE HIS "STUFF"  WITH ME.  JUST HAD LUNCH WITH

HIM YESTERDAY AND HE SEEMED FINE.  IT IS ALL I CAN 

THINK ABOUT RIGHT NOW.  I WANT SO MUCH TO HUG HIM 

AND TELL HIM I LOVE HIM.  I JUST AM AT A LOSS.

I HAVE TO GO.  LOVE, LOU ANN

Good Morning! 
It looks like we really could have a White Christmas ~ maybe.  I tend to trust our Weather Folk about as much as I do our Government ~ smiley83   Supposedly some snow on Monday and more on Christmas Day, and otherwise in the 40s and 50s.  We'll see.   I would like to get a picture of our house with the "new" lights in the snow if I could.



Oh my sweet friend, I am so sorry to hear all that your family is going through.  It woul be terrible any time, but somehow it always seems so much worse before Christmas.  I guess we all have our memories of Christmas being a happy, magical time and even when it is a bit less than that we are disappointed.  When really bad things happen, we are devastated.  

I know that Suz and Joanne and their families realize the end may be near for the mil and fil, but that doesn't make it any easier, nor does the timing.  Christmas is going to be difficult for both families, and I'm so sorry about that.  

I know none of you will be able to think of Jordan in jail for the holidays without feeling so much pain yourselves.  You can even accept "in your heads" that it might be a good thing for him, but when you actually think of him on Christmas, there is no way it won't be almost as hard for you as for him.  

Now our sweet Josh!  Bless his sweet heart.  I don't even know what to say.  I'm going to think that good will come from this and he will get the help he needs that no one realized he did.  So often you hear of kids who commit suicide and no one had an inkling that it was a possibility.  How unbearable that would be ~ unimaginable.  Now he's been given the gift of time to heal and you've all been given the heads up you couldn't have had before.  

I hurt for you, an I will be praying for your whole family.

smiley8
Rest your eyes, have a happy day,and Stay Warm!  I love you.

Dorothy, thanks for your kind words...I love you too.
Josh is out, but he has to see a Doctor on both Saturday 
and Sunday.  He was so depressed because he works so
jard but has not money to buy Christmas presents.  Josh
is a spender...no holes in his pockets as the money never
makes it that far.  he has bought tons of tools for his work.
Paid to make his album.  Bought a truck.  He takes on too much.
We try to stop him but he will have to learn the hard way.  Not
sure why he thinks he is disappointing his dad.  David is big
on sports and Josh did summer baseball, but never got into'
them like Jason does.  Jason eats, drinks and breathes sports
and his dad is right there with him for it all.  But he has always supported Josh and his music too and when he plays somewhere he is there too.  Then there is the girlfriend issue.  He says he cannot keep a girlfriend.  He is young and I think there is too much emphasis placed on being couples.  Besides I think Josh is a flirt and treats girls like buddies so not sure how that all goes for him.  Have not had a chance to talk to himin person yet.  I just let him know I love him and am here for him whenever and where ever 
We are supposed to get some snow tomorrow and again on Christmas Eve. Not a lot though.  I like to have a white
Christmas as long as it does not make it hard for people
to travel.
I finished painting the Nativity.  Once I get the eyes
done I will take a pic.  I am not thrilled with it.  The colors
of paint Suz got for me were not what I would have chose.
It really has been a pain in the ass to paint and I need to let 
the perfectionist in me put it to rest.  It really needs to be
sprayed with a protective matte finish as the paints chips
and nicks really easily.  But I cannot get to a well ventilates
area to spray them.  I used to always go outside or to the far end of the basement to spray them and neither of those
options will work right now.
I tried a tutorial Wed and finished it Thur so you get it now.
Hugs,


\

Ho! Ho! Ho!   Happy Saturday!

I got the last of my Christmas gifts yesterday, so now all that remains is to wrap them.  All of the things we sent out of town were sent directly from wherever we ordered them from.  I did used to love shopping in the decorated malls and wrapping and making special bows or decorations.  Never really loved getting them packed for mailing, but that was always Mike's job after we married.  Now, we shop online, have THEM wrap and send them on their way.  Maybe not quite as much fun, but after all these years I think I've had enough of that kind of fun.  Ha!

We're getting a groceery delivery this morning and right now the plans are to go to The Keg for an early dinner.  I didn't sleep well and Mike woke up needing his pills, so we'll have to see about that.  

smiley2
What a pretty tag and border ~ and we're told to expect some snow for Christmas, too.  Thank you!  

I'm glad Josh is out.  I don't know what the right thing to do would be.  On the one hand, if he'd told his friend he was feeling suicidal and the friend hadn't done anything and he had hurt himself . . . . .     On the other hand, telling a friend how you are feeling and having the cops come and put you in a Psych Ward would make it kind of hard for me to trust.  I have trust issues, so I know I'm projecting, but it did seem, I don't know ~ too much?    Anyway, I'm so glad he is out and having the problem aired has a professional to talk to.  I know your whole family will rally around him.  I think he's kind of special too, so I'm sending love from Colorado.  

I agree about a White Christmas.  They have changed our forecast several times, from snow on Monday to no snow to ~~ well, they still have snow on Christmas Day in the forecast, but I don't think I'll count on it.    I want the White Christmas to be well timed ~~ meaning when we don't need to go out but can enjoy it from inside.  ho! ho! ho!  

I'll bet the Nativity Set is beautiful.  I do hope you can spray it so all of your hard work is protected.  

Thank you again for the lovely tag!

CHATTED A BIT WITH JOSH.  I DID NOT PUSH
HIM FOR INFO.  HE TOLD ME HE WILL BE OK, THAT HE IS OK, LOL.  I HOPE SO.  I TOLD HIM THAT HE CAN TALK TO ME ANY TIME, ANY WHERE ANY WAY.  THAT HE IS NOT ALONE.  NOT EVER.  I AM GLAD HIS FRIEND TOLD SOMEONE OR HE COULD HAVE BEEN DEAD BY NOW.  I DO NOT KNOW IF HE SAID HE WANTED TO DO IT OR HE WAS GOING TO DO IT.  IT HAPPENED AT SCHOOL.  THEY TOLD THE POLICE LIAISON OFFICER AND HE HANDLED IT.  I STILL DO NOT KNOW ANY DETAILS OTHER THAN THAT.  I THINK WHOEVER IT WAS THAT TOLD WAS A TRUE FRIEND.  GOD BLESS HIM. 
COMPLETED THE NATIVITY AND PUT IT IN A SEPARATE POST.  I DID THE BEST I COULD UNDER
THE CIRCUMSTANCES,
NOW JUST HAVE TO WRAP A COUPLE OF ITEMS
AND BUY A COUPLE ITEMS.  GOING TO SEE IF SUZ WOULD TAKE ME OUT SHOPPING ON TUESDAY.  WANT TO GET CHEESE FOR A CHEESE TRAY AND SOME CRACKERS...AND WHATEVER STRIKES MY FANCY.  I HAVE A SLUSH MIX THAT I HAVE BEEN SAVING AND I NEED TO SEE WHAT KIND OF ALCOHOL IT CALLS FOR.  I AM NOT SURE THAT I WILL BAKE AT ALL.  IT WOULD REMOVE THE STRESS A LOT.  STILL NEED TO CLEAN BATHROOM AND KITCHEN AND VACUUM AND DUST THE LIVING ROOM...BUT NOT FEELING AS OVER WHELMED AS I WAS.  THINK I WILL SKIP BAKING...THE NEPHEWS DO NOT EAT THEM AND WE ADULTS DO NOT NEED THEM....MOM IS GOING TO TRY AND MAKE DIVINITY TOMORROW.
WATCHING THE SOUND OF MUSIC WITH CARRIE UNDERWOOD.  THEY HAVE DONE AN EXCELLENT JOB, BUT I WILL ALWAYS LOVE THE VERSION WITH JULIE ANDREWS.
WELL, TIME TO SAY GOOD NIGHT
AND GOD BLESS.

 Good Morning.  It's the first day of Winter and we're still going to be in the mid-40s.

Yesterday neither of us felt well all day, so we didn't go to The Keg.  Last night I slept well and I feel so much better today, and Mike seems to too.    The neighborhood Christmas party is this afternoon and I think we will be able to go.  



Happy Winter Solstice!

THANKS FOR THE COMPLIMENTS ON THE NATIVITY.  I THINK IT LOOKS BETTER IN THE PICTURES THAN IN PERSON, LOL.  IT IS EASIER TO SEE ALL MY ERRORS.  I HOPE IT SURPRISES HER THAT IS IT DONE.  IT SHOULD SINCE IT MEANS SHE IS GETTING 2 PRESENTS FROM ME AND I DO NOT HAVE HER NAME.  BUT WE HAVE ALWAYS DONE A SEPARATE GIFT SINCE WE ARE THE SINGLE ONES AND HAVE NO SPOUSES TO GIFT.  MOM, DIANE AND I USED TO HAVE A MINI CHRISTMAS BEFORE THE REST OF THE FAMILY ARRIVE, BUT LAST YEAR OTHERS ARRIVED BEFORE HER SO WE DID NOT.  I GOT HER A HUGS PHOTO BOX FOR SORTING AND STORING PHOTOS.  SHE TAKES A TON OF PICTURES.  I GOT MY SISTER SUZ AND SWEATER AND EARRINGS TO THANK HER FOR ALL SHE DOES FOR ME.  FOR MY SISTER GIFTS I GOT RING CANDLES...YOU KNOW THE ONES YOU SEE ALL OVER FACEBOOK THAT HAVE RINGS IN THE CANDLE.  THEY CAN BE WORTH $10-$5000.  BET THERE ARE RARELY ANY OF THE HIGH END ONES.  I THOUGHT THEY WOULD GET A KICK OUT OF IT AND IT WILL BE FUN TO SEE WHAT THEY GET ONCE THEY REACH THE RINGS.  ALSO GOT THEM A GREAT LITTLE CONTAINER THAT LOOKS LIKE A LIPSTICK OT PERFUME TUBE BUT ACTUALLY IS A SCREWDRIVER WITH ALL KINDS OF ENDS INSIDE IT.  VERY HANDY AND CAN BE CARRIED IN YOUR PURSE SO ALWAY HAVE ON YOU. GOT MY MOMMA A NEW SUPPLY OF JIGSAW PUZZLES.  BOY, THEY ARE NOT CHEAP.  WE ARE ALWAYS WATCHING FOR SALES....EVEN THEN THEY ARE BETWEEN $6-9 EACH.  I GOT HER ABOUT 10.  ORIGINALLY HAD ABOUT 14 BUT CULLED IT BACK TO KEEP IT WRITE AROUND $100.  I STILL HAVE TO GET A $30 GC FOR FLEET FARM FOR JOANNE'S HUBBY DAVID, WHO I GOT IN THE FAMILY DRAW.  JOSH AND JASON ARE BOTH GETTING DUCK DYNASTY BOXERS AND $20 CASH.  LEIGH'S BOYS GET ANOTHER YEAR OF THEIR MAGAZINES...SPORTS ILLUSTRATED FOR KIDS AND MAD MAGAZINE AND THOSE NOTICES ARE TUCKED INTO DUCK DYNASTY HATS.  NOT SUPPOSED TO BUY FOR THE OTHER NEPHEWS BUT.....GOING TO GIVE JORDAN AND TRAVIS BOTH $20 ON THE SIDE AND BRENT (WHO IS ALSO MY GODSON) IS GETTING A SET OF 4 DUCK DYNASTY GLASSES (BECAUSE HE HAS GROWN A BEARD LIKE THEIRS) AND MOM AND I WENT TOGETHER AND GOT HIM A HISTORY BOOK ON THE US PRESIDENTS.  SUPPOSED TO HAVE ALL KINDS OF UNKNOWN FACTS ABOUT THEM.  HE HAS A HISTORY DEGREE AND LOVES ANYTHING ABOUT IT.  NOT SUPPOSED TO BE BUYING FOR HIM EITHER, BUT I GET AWAY WITH IT SINCE HE IS MY GODSON TOO.  I ONLY HAVE THE NATIVITY TO WRAP AND A SWEATER AND SCARF I GOT LOUANN FOR ALL SHE DOES FOR ME.  I GOT DISNEY TOTES FOR ALL THE BABIES AND I PUST THEIR PLUSHES AND BOOKS IN THEM AND THAT IS THE WRAPPING, LOL.  SO I WILL WRAP UP THE LAST 2 THINGS TOMORROW.

   Good Morning!

Christmas is moving a lot faster than I am.  I need to WRAP!  

I woke to SNOW and a beautiful sunrise.  I tried to get pictures from my phone, but I don't think they came close to doing that sunrise justice.   We don't have much snow, and the forecast for today is snow and rain.  I don't think we'll try to go to The Keg later. 

Marcela was supposed to come this morning, but her boss at the restaurant changed her day so she's coming tomorrow.  I guess it's ok, but I'm not happy about the days being changed all the time.  If this continues, I may have to look for someone else.  I understand her position, but while she and her boss are putting their needs first, Mike and I need to do the same.  Not until after the first of the year, though.
I bought her some Norwex things and have them gift wrapped and I will give her the cost of one service as her bonus.    I think she has made some of her wonderful cookies and will bring them to us.  I love them, but if I don't stop eating sweets, I'm gonna pop like a tick (whatever that expression means).   . . . . Also, after the First.  Ho!Ho!Ho!

We did go to the party yesterday afternoon and it was nice to see everyone plus many I had never seen before.  Good food, wine and Barbara brought her killer Whisky Slush, only this time it was really good Scotch Slush.   I only had one glass.  Honest.

Sheri's house is the same model as ours and she incorporated several of the things we had done when she built, and much, much more.   She has about a bazillion antiques and our two houses couldn't possibly look more different, even though they have the same floor plan.   Hers is filled in every nook and cranny with lovely things, and ours looks like we just moved in yesterday, with almost nothing on the counters or tables.  Kinda funny, really. 

I just had a bowl of cereal for dinner and that was more than enough.  Mike made corned beef hash and eggs for breakfast, and I really didn't eat that much at the party, but all the extra munching is catching up with me.  I felt stuffed by dinner time.

So then, I don't think I got an hour's sleep last night.  No telling how I'm going to feel as the day progresses.   Mike hasn't been doing too well either.  Guess we're fallin' apart.

I think your gifts sound great ~ and very imaginative.   I sometimes envy your close family ~ and sometimes, not.  LOL.  It's just that I've become such a hermit.   Mike and I were talking the other day about needing some of your nephews.  We have so many little things too small to hire a professional to do that still need doing.  We need nephews!     I'm glad you are doing something for Josh and Jason, whether you are supposed to or not.   Can't wait to hear how Diane likes the nativity and how everyone likes their gifts ~~~ and what YOU got!

I haven't seen the Ring Candles, but I'll go looking for them now.  They sound cool ~~ as does your goodie tray and slush!

You know about Mike's gift, which he's had for a while now.  Aside from that I got him some Duluth Trading Company shirts for comfort and a Countess Mara shirt for what is now our version of "dress".  The maker puts their "M" emblem on the pocket, but of course we consider it a monogram.  I got him his favorite Ashbach chocolate covered cherries with Ashback brandy and some other Ashback liquor filled chocolates too.  He already has his Ashback Advent Calendar.  There are a few other small things, but not much.
   We used to do a whole lot more for each other since we don't have kids to buy for, but now there is so little we need or want ~~ other than nephews nearby.  Ho!Ho!Ho!

I haven't a clue what Mike got for me, but he has been bragging about having everything he ordered gift wrapped.   I definitely do not, so I'm going to raid his larder of the pre-wrapped boxes I've made over the years, and see if I can't get some help that way.      I'd better get it done today, cuz time is running out.

Have a great day!  

Sunrise today. 
BTW, I 'lifted' your border, too.  smiley80

WE GOT ALL THE WRAPPING DONE.  WHEW!

AND WE GOT A BATCH OF DIVINITY MADE.

NOW WE JUST HAVE CLEANING AS I AM NOT

MAKING MY COOKIES.  THERE IS ALWAYS TOO

MUCH SWEETS AROUND HERE ANYWAY.  I LOVE

THEM AND WOULD EAT TOO MANY.

SUZ AND TRAVIS ARE TAKING ME SHOPPING 

TOMORROW AND ARE PICKING ME UP AT 4PM.

SO I GUESS I WILL BE TREATING THEM TO

SUPPER.  THERE IS A COUSINS IN WALMART 

SO THAT IS PROBABLY WHAT WE WILL DO.  I 

NEED TO MAKE A LIST OF THINGS I NEED TO

GET BEFORE I GO SO I DO NOT FORGET ANY

THING.  WAS THINKING THAT BESIDES THE 

CHEESE, SAUSAGE AND CRACKERS, I MIGHT ALSO 

GET A LOAF OF BREAD AND SOME SPINACH DIP.  

ALWAYS LOVED THAT TOO.  GOTTA MAKE SURE MY 

CAMERA IS CHARGED FOR THURSDAY.  JOANNE 

HAS SAID SHE WOULD GO TO CHURCH CHRISTMAS 

EVE AND THEN HAVE MOM AND I OUT FOR SUPPER 

AND THE EVENING.  BUT MOM WANTS TO

COME HOME AND ENJOY A QUIET EVENING.

I THINK THAT IS JUST AS WELL.  SHE REALLY GETS

TIRED OUT EASILY AND CHRISTMAS WILL TAKE A

LOT OUT OF HER.

LOUANN CALLED AND INVITED ME OVER ON FRIDAY.

NAN IS COMING IN SO THAT BRUCE CAN TEACH HER

HOW TO USE HER SMART PHONE AND SHE SAID THAT

SHE AND I COULD WATCH A MOVIE OR SOMETHING.

I AM SUPPOSED TO PICK OUT A COUPLE OF MOVIES

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE AND SHE WILL SEE WHAT

SHE CAN GET.  I DO NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT IS OUT

THERE, SINCE I NEVER SEE ANYTHING NEW.

I FINALLY SAW AVATAR THE OTHER DAY AND IT

BLEW ME AWAY...THEY ARE MAKING MORE MOVIES

SET THERE NOW.  I FOUND IT BEAUTIFUL AND 

FASCINATING.  I WISH IT HAD NOT BEEN AS

VIOLENT AS IT WAS AT TIMES...BUT THAT IS THE

WORLD THESE DAYS I GUESS.

ANYWHO, TIME TO HIT THE HAY....LOT'S TO DO

TOMORROW.

BIG HUGS!
