I went to Wal-Mart to pick up a skein of yarn. I wanted to try a ripple afghan in a varigated rainbow. That was the only Christmas thing I did, LOL!

Another plain old workday, nothing special planned. Started working on our Christmas gift/card list yesterday so we can peck away at it between now and the holidays. Started preliminary work on this year's YuleTube. I have a few vacation days left, and I'm trying to figure out just when to schedule them.

It is supposed to be hot again today. We have the whole house fan on, and Hubby is working on some more demo work. He is SO NEAT even in demo work!!! And he cleans up after himself as he goes along! What a guy!

Glad to have you back safe and sound. Sounds liek you had a great camping trip. Have fun babysitting!

This past summer we have had unusual warm temperatures reaching 28+ degrees round this part of england ....well for a couple of weeks that is lol. Today it is 23 degrees celcius and that is warm for us! Winters have been funny. A couple years ago we had three winters in a row with heavy snow but last winter we only got a couple light snowfalls......cold though. The south tend to get the more extreme waether. They get scorching temps in the summer and heavy snow in winter. Im in a city that never stops raining!!

I think that some islanders (not sure if it is Bermuda or another one) use vanilla also. My grandmother was German, though.
I was thinking sweet potatoes. Yams are hard to find. Thanks you for the tips.

Thank you! This year it has been lovely to have such a sunny summer so far. It makes the approach of fall all the more exciting.

Wow, that sounds like great weather to me! I wish our highs would ONLY be that or less! I love snow, so I would have had a good time with the snow you had a few years ago. We always had snow every year when I lived in NC. So many wonderful memories.

Awesome!!! My hubby is like that too! He probably does a better job of cleaning up than I do. When I'm done with canning - like tomatoes - my kitchen is a DISASTER - (I do clean it up, but....) when he is finished with a project, he usually has been cleaning up as he goes along. I guess I'm a git 'r done, clean up later person?? LOL!

Good Thursday afternoon, my Christmas friends!

What a day it's already been! Nancy was up at 4AM with the stomach bug, so I was up, too. I got work late because of that, and since then I've spilled two full cups of coffee. Coffee abuse!!

I've worked the last two days strictly from the tablet PC that the company has me field-testing. I find that, every time I have to use the regular PC, I reach across the desk to swipe the screen. It's too easy to get used to that!

Our company has rented a nearby water park for 4 hours tomorrow afternoon as a pat on the back for the guys, so we get to leave work early. I'll probably have the stomach bug by then.

I hope y'all have a great day!

That sounds like a fun project! I love scrapbooks!!

It was nice, just relaxed some.
