Good morning all!!
Hope you all had a great day on Thursday
and you indulged yourselves
in all there was to indulge in!!
and those of you who didn't
hope you had a good day anyway!!!
So, now we begin the countdown to the other big celebration
After two days of overcast skies
and general yuckyness
it is bright and beautiful today
but it's supposed to be cold now
so it's OK!!
For MY first Christmas purchase this year
I bought these very festive
Husband needed some sand paper so off we went to get it
and to make sure he didn't get lost and wander too long in the humongous building
I went with.
I always check out the plants in said establishments
as the nurseries are usually too busy and very expensive
and most of them are closed at the moment
or just have trees
but I spied these little beauties
and thought how very
they looked with the red and green splotches
so I got the last two decent ones
the racks and racks of poinsettias looked
very sad and already used
so I avoided them this time
such a shame when the new stuff comes in
with an already
but there is so much of everything already
and it has that
picked over feel about it
and we have just begun!!
I was very happy to see the parking lots full of cars
and lots of people in the stores
Living where we do it's tempting to run up North a bit and use the huge Malls up that way
but yesterday it seems
everybody and their brother were here at "home"
spending spending spending
good for the local economy
I have finally finished the basket weave knitted thing
I guess it's more a
neck warmer than a scarf
I put the
Dorset button on and made a little loop and
Bob's your uncle
If it keeps getting colder I may just wear it!!
Another Divine hat in the making
I also got another book the other day
husband gets little reminders from Amazon
and acts accordingly
I still have to start the others I have
but Winter is here
so I will be reading them soon
As we were up that way
