Ooh, such great colors to work with!

I'll have to post a sample of Mistletoe when I can. I got 11 skeins because that cost enough to earn free shipping. That'll keep me going for a while!

I get teased now and then about my red pens. I tell them they are tools, not weapons, and must be handled by qualified personnel.

The C*sino (a movie theatre with a ballroom on the upper level and a museum in the basement) and the Arcade (shops and the post office) are shown in "Murder on a Honeymoon," and they looked about the same the last time I saw them, as well as some of the scenery in the movie. Sadly, a lovely hotel that is shown in the movie, the St. Catherine, burned to the ground decades ago. It looks like a place I would have loved to have stayed, but I probably wouldn't have been able to afford it!

Has anyone heard about the Hallmark Christmas season this year like the scheduling or anything? I always forget when they start. Usually mid November IIRC. I am nuts about that channel that and the AMC channel at Halloween. The AMC channel is extremely hard to predict though one year is good then the next is complete crap.(excuse the language) Hopefully they have a good lineup and the Hallmark channel never lets met down. From the start of the season except for my games on Sunday I watch Hallmark from beginning to end and the thing I love is they play them until Jan 2. The holidays should never end on the 26th!

Good rainy evening, MMC!

It is still storming out.

My plans to make spaghetti sauce are on hold - I'd hate to lose electricity right in the middle of the sauce making as I tend to make a bit of a mess and I really don't want to wake up to piles of dirty dishes. A few are okay, but not sink fulls! I forgot to pick basil, too, and I can't have sauce without basil! I'd rather the rain, though! Good night to relax and catch up on my reading.

Gotta rustle up some din-din for myself (they're making Mr. work late again), then get to work on some paperwork that entails summarizing through two years' worth of correspondence and e-mails pertaining to a legal matter. Talk about killing an evening.
