I'm so excited that it's snowing on Rudolph Day! Everyone is so mad about the snow but we've barely gotten any! I'd take snow over the heat and humidity in teh summer ANY DAY!

We didn't get the chance to watch it as planned because of taking my daughter back to college took alot longer than we planned so looks like I still have a little wait until I get a chance the movie because it's almost 3 hours long.

I am a big fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and of course of his colleague, C.S. Lewis, who wrote among other things, The Chronicles of Narnia series and The Screwtape Letters. I thought The Hobbit was very very long. Also, I don't want to give anything away as you have not seen it but it seemed to me there were an awful lot of things added that were not in the book...Hope you like it !!

Ripples can be great for scrap/stash afghans. I once made a baby afghan using leftovers---when I ran out of a color, I'd finish the row in white, do the next full row in white, then join another color to start the next row. When I was finished, someone asked me for the pattern!

Here's a scrap one I made that way. It wasn't very handsome, but it had a certain crazy quilt effect:

Good morning dear Christmas Family and Happy Rudolph Day March 2013 !!!

The count is zipping right along, isn't it !!! That is so great. I am just sitting here waiting for more work this morning, which is pretty typical for Monday. I do not have too much more to do today as I started at 5:30 a.m. today and I got lucky - Got a doc who uses a template partially filled in and all I had to do was modify it a little for each patient. Starting to get a wee bit nervous about final exam for my writing class. I know if I just slow down and take my time all will be well.

Xmas - I hope you are feeling better !! xo

Take care, Christmas family xoxoxo

I know lots of you are tired of snow...but who can resist a Christmas tree ?? Especially GLITTER Christmas trees - DRINK UP !!! xo
