Thank you for the link, Seawaters. I love this! Christmas colors would be gorgeous - green, burgundy, cream, etc. I might have to go shopping for yarn next month.

He is just like me with being shy at new things, I guess that is one reason everyone calls him my clone.

I am, of course, getting excited about all things Christmas being everywhere. But reading the article about the Christmas music mistake really makes me think how much I dislike how people complain and almost villainize Christmas. I know not everyone is like us with the love of Christmas, but to always complain at the first sight of something green & red as some people do just....AAARRRRRRRGGGGHHHH!

Sorry, I'm done

I hope to have an easy night, I have some projects lined up, but my usual Wednesday nights never allow me to get everything done. With school back in session I am hoping it is slower to get them done.

I hope you all have a great Pines Day!!!
love your rant and so agree with you!

I hope LC does enjoy school next week.

thanks to all of you for the crochet advice, going to store later today and picking up some supplies.

We ended up with a lot of rain with lightning and thunder off in the distance. The real bad stuff wasn't nearby. Usually we lose power with those kinds of storms and yesterday we didn't. Yay!

all this talk about monopoly, we love the game here. I know we have the reg version and the Disney one. We also have monopoly deal which is the card game version of it. I showed my son the Franklin mint one and he would really like that one!

good thing you are not having it shipped form Canada, it would most likely cost you double that for postage. Our high rates are the reason I head over to Port Huron to mail all my Christmas cards.
