Almost December!

Good Afternoon.  Well Cindy just set me up on Facebook and all I can do is wonder about how I’ll learn the ins and outs.  But I learn Blogging so until the mind goes I’ll master Facebook too.

The weather in my neck of the woods is as follows.   40 degrees, wind at 4 mph, a high of 43 for the day, with partly cloudy or sunny all day.   But this is Michigan and it could change with the snap of your fingers.

Our first two Christmas cards ( from the Murphy families) arrived on Saturday.  My first reaction was wonderful but my second was oh S**t that is right I have to get cards out !!

I did however finish my project.

It was to be a shawl but it was so tedious I made it a long scarf instead.

This was the pattern I mounted on cardboard until I memorized it.   After that It was just redo the same stitches over and over.  I finished it last night a little after midnight.  I went to bed with sore arms and thumbs.  But at least I made something as a gift.

Cindy, David, and I will start the holiday decorating Wednesday.  But I thought I would dress Lucy today,

Her dress has toys on it and she it holding a gift.

As Christmas gets closer I’ll put on her angel dress.

Well Chris is coming over to put up the Christmas lights on the house tomorrow.  That will really help put me in a festive mood.

I was notified that the truck insurance is due next month so I’ll have to get that taken care of.  The sobbing you hear is my bank account crying for help but hey it’s the holidays and I have survived 81 years of it and this year will be no different.

I hope you are making plans about your busy December!
