The only cleaning we will be doing this year is packing stuff up to store in the garage until the remodeling is finished. After that, we will have a lot of work to do to get everything moved back in!

Have a great day everyone!
How could they not be fond of Canadians, they are some of the best people in the world.

Stuck at the office after hours again. And on a Friday night. They can't tell me when they'll be done. C'mon, guys!

We will of course need a picture of your new cozy spot when it is all set up!
If I can figure out a way to do it without revealing household clutter, you may get your wish ...

I picked up some yarn to begin my reversible afghan, and picked up some more yarn for another one. The second yarn is a milk chocolate brown, a turquoise skein (Aruba Sea), and a variegated yarn that is a combination of dark chocolate brown, the milk chocolate brown and the turquoise (Earth and Sky).

Tweak that aqua into a mint green, and call it Chocolate Mint!
I stopped at A.C. Moore yesterday for some yarn for my ripple afghan, and snagged two skeins of a pretty variegated yarn that has been discountinued, for $2 apiece. I don't know what the color is called, but it's Bernat yarn.

I love how your day turned out. I also love the license plate on you-know-whose car!

I have a neat story to share with you guys!
On Sunday, while I was visiting my family in La Crosse, my sister took me out to lunch. We went to the Hungry Peddler, a favorite restaurant for both of us. When we pulled into the parking lot, an advertisement on a car caught my eye. It looked like a Christmas wall hanging that I put up each season. I had to investigate =]
So we walked over to it, and sure enough, it was!! On each of the front doors, there was detailing that read "Believe in the magic of Christmas"! The license plate read Santa C! A Santa hat is centered on the dashboard =}
There were bumper stickers too, that read "My other car is a sleigh" & NP (North Pole). There was also an e-mail address, so I just e-mailed Santa for more information-I'll let you know his response!

When we went inside, I took a picture of the digital Christmas countdown that is hanging near the bar and kitchen area. I always smile when I see it!! The owner, Kevin, is a friend from high school's father. They are also big Christmas lovers! He saw me taking a picture of the countdown, and he asked if I realized that Santa was actually dining in the next room. He pointed him out to me, not that I would have missed him, he had his white long beard and was dressed in all red!! 🎅 It was awesome!!

I was hoping to catch him before he left, unfortunately that didn't happen. But it was pretty cool to see the big guy so early in the season!!

Here are a few pictures of his vehicle!!
