Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.
The Best of Christmas Sitcoms
My Top Ten list would not be complete without:

My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
It's never too early for me. I already have things in the gift closet. A lot of my gift recievers are gardening lovers and now is the time of year to buy items for them to put in thier gift baskets I make. I have even given hubby my Christmas list as there are some things that are out in the stores that won't be there at Christmas and are great bargains.
I started collecting stocking stuffers during the after-Christmas sales but I haven't yet started on the gifts. My family has all our birthdays packed into June and July, so now that the birthdays are behind me, I will start work on Christmas.
This weekend will be a great time to start since it's Virginia's tax holiday on school supplies and clothing.
I haven't started shopping just yet but I did make a list of everyone I need to shop for and what I think I might get each of them. I might actually start shopping in a few weeks. I'm making a trip out to the mall on the 11th of August so I'll likely have a bag or two of gifts on that day.
I am hoping to some wrapping - maybe September, to be realistic. I think I will buy some paperback books at the used book store and wrap them up for MOI!!!! I love to have something good to read when the after-Christmas exhaustion sets in.
