Merry, Merry…


I’d like to wish a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you, your family and friends.

My kids are driving in tonight from MA for the weekend so I most likely won’t be posting over the next couple weeks.

I’ll see you in 2011…

Need An Extra Day?

I got an extra day this week… today (Tuesday) actually – I got an extra day today.

I spent all day thinking it was Wednesday, thinking I had to get this, that, or the other done.  (I went to Costco… you know how I hate to shop and I went to Costco… today… Wednesday… or so I thought)  It wasn’t until late afternoon when I was talking with my youngest daughter that she pointed out that it was Tuesday… only Tuesday.  I have a whole ‘nother day to get ready for the weekend.

I don’t know why I thought it was Wednesday… maybe I’m just excited that my 2 kiddos are coming in after the boy gets off work Thursday night.  So they will be getting in very, very late… or actually really, really, early Friday morning.

Shhhhh, don’t tell… but I also went to the Mall last Friday afternoon… early afternoon.  I got in and got out… quick trip into the Apple store to buy myself an ipod Touch – thanks to a very generous $$ gift from my in-laws.  I have to say – I love it, love it, love it.

I picked up a little app (or two or ten)… this one adds a quirky cartoonish look to photos you take… here is my little tree… in the dark with the lights.


I sorta like this pencil drawing too…


And here’s the dog who was pestering me to feed her.


I think I’ll have fun with that app… LOL

Now that I have an extra day… I’ll go get my groceries on Wednesday rather than Thursday.  And then I’ll be done…

You don’t have much time left – so if you need an extra day… now you know how to get it.

It’s Bear Season…

No not Bear Hunting Season.

It’s the time of year that I do my best impersonation of a bear…

You know it’s Bear Season when…

  • You want a warm and wooly coat when you have to HAVE TO go outside.
  • You’d much rather MUCH RATHER stay inside where it’s warm and cozy… and wait for spring.
  • Your legs have made the transition from bare legs to bear legs…

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to get that whole hibernating thing to work in daily practice… phooey!

Since I can’t hibernate… I have to run out for a couple errands today.  Sure wish it wasn’t windy today… but since it’s snowing in Western PA… I’ll not complain out loud… right now… anymore… today…

Then later I’ll go back to working on my grandsons fish quilt…

Swimmies quilt 009

The one I’ve been dragging my feet on… the one I lost the backing for… the one I couldn’t decide how to quilt.  Yesterday morning I was looking through a quilt magazine and found my answer.  It was right there… undulating horizontal lines… simple! 

I’m half done… well and then there’s the binding.  It should be in Hawaii by Christmas… only 2 years and 1 month past his birthday.
