Hi ladies
Sounds like you all had busy days.
It took me till 3:30 to get the goodie boxes finished. I bagged, tagged, ribboned, all the goodies. Then got them boxed and to the post office.

Next year I will know it will take me 4 days to do this for 2 families.

Finished my mom's embroidered dish towels and will send them out tomorrow. They have already had their Christmas on Sunday. All my siblings were there but me of course. Even my 2 daughters were there. But you live where your husband works, my mom taught me that years ago. I just miss them more during the holidays.

Tomorrow I have to finish presents for my son's family. Will most likely be busy till the end.

I did get a chance to clean up my sewing room a little so I can work in there without going crazy and having to move things just to get things done.

It was sunny today. Suppose to be sunny and clouds. Been really warm for here this time of year.

Hubby was off today, and he got a lot of studying in. He has to preach for about a month as the pastor is having a knee replacement done in January.

Good evening ladies,

Are you ready for Christmas yet? I'm almost there. We had some snow and temps in the 20's today. I think Thur and Fri are supposed to be pretty and near 30 or in the 30's. Then we have snow moving in Fri evening for the weekend.

I enjoy hearing about the things you are seeing, Judy. The titanic must have been so interesting to see.

Jan, I've never heard of a gurgle pot. Sounds intrieging!! Hope you get one in the color you like.

Patty, Glad you are able to be out and about with your mom.

Paulissa, You have done an amazing job. I admire you getting up early and doing your workouts and everything with working, too. Way to go!!

Hope everyone had a good day!

Glenna

We've got a nasty storm rolling in Thursday and I'm not looking forward to having to go to work in it. Snow and freezing rain = dangerous travel. I'm off on Friday for the holiday so we'll see what happens.

It is not a sunny day here. It is very gloomy, and rainy. That misty type of rain that just keeps on coming. I can see the bushes moving so it is windy too. No complaints as it could be a lot worse, just inconvenient. DH is kid sitting as no baseball camp. I don't think there will be one all week.

Not a good time for painting so I'm not going to even thing about my mess in the sewing room until it dried up outside. At least the junk that goes back on 1/3 of the shelves has been cleaned out. I find it so hard to get rid of sewing stuff. When I use to do machine embroidery I had a friend buy me Mexican silk embroidery thread in Mexico. I have at least 50 spools that are in such beautiful colors and all shades of each color. It is a very fine thread and easily breaks when it dries out. At times I kept it in the freezer to keep it moist but later I just wrapped pieces of Bounce around each spool. I also have spools of thin yarn thread that I used in a punch embroidery craft. I found several finished projects that never got framed.

Paulissa, I hope you enjoy your first day back at work.

Jan, Do enjoy your anniversary. I hope the DIL's job interview goes well. She will have to find some place to live if she gets it. Is there a womans Y in Portland?

Patty, it sounds like your roads are passable if you and your Mom are going out. Slippery conditions are good for older people.

I hope everyone is having a good day.

Good morning ladies,

Today is our 41st anniversary. Bruce gave me something I've been wishing for a long time: a gurgle pot. It's a pitcher in the shape of a fish. When you pour from it, it makes a gurgle sound. Comes in all kinds of wonderful colors. He got white because he wasn't sure but the ladies at the shop said I could bring it in and get any color I want. I'm thinking either cobalt or ?

Things have calmed down here and we're moving toward finding some solutions.

Time is flying by and I need to wrap some gifts and write some cards.

Good morning,

Well, I managed to work my plan for my exercise this morning. I laid out the clothes in the bathroom last night, chose which DVD I wanted to use, laid out the weights, etc and was sweating by 5 am. I will do some more aerobics, etc this evening. Now to keep up the hard work.

I'm trying to catch up on work so things are pretty busy so far.

Good morning friends,
Cold(17) and sunny here this morning. I love to see the sun.

Going to lunch at senior center, then taking Mom to store, and visiting at her home.

Have a blessed day.
Patty
