Don't count yourself out until you try! There are tons of instructional videos on YouTube that show you exactly how to do each step of crochet or knitting. If one video isn't clear, there are plenty more that might make things clearer. Get a cheap skein of acrylic yarn and a plastic crochet hook and give it a try ... you might surprise yourself!

I saw them at Giant, I think they are mostly in PA. Just a teensy display in one aisle!

We watched "Caillou's Holiday Movie" and had a picnic lunch in the living room. I wanted to go to Michael's but hte kids are cozy and don't want to go out. Fine with me! Making some soup and some muffins in a bit instead!

That sounds like a great way to celebrate!
Today's episode of the podcast featured Ms. MerryCary sharing Christmas movies that folks may not know about! I took notes.

Yeah ... Boston.com has a few features today focused on Christmas marketing that has started already, including a poll asking readers when Christmas advertising should start. Fairly neutral in tone, but it gets people riled up in the wrong way anyhow.

(Let me amend that ... the shootings at the Washington Navy Yard have driven the Christmas advertising stories off the page. At least six are reported dead. Yet another violent, senseless tragedy.)
