Good morning. The sun is shining, but ooooowee it is too cold for me! We are barely into the low 20's this morning. I do love the Christmas season, but I can't wait for Spring to get here!
Well, it's been busy around here. Yesterday, Cliff came by to do a few things for me. There are lots of little things that need doing before being clobbered by Winter. Putting hoses away, turning off outside water, covering the faucets, covering and putting away lawn furniture, weather stripping door frames that have settled, etc, etc. He also covered the front of my porch with heavy duty plastic.
The list of chores is never ending when you have a house. This morning I thought of a couple more things to put on the house "to do" list. While Cliff was busy outside, I was busy wrapping and boxing gifts. I was doing pretty good until I discovered that I had wrapped one gift and put the wrong tag on it. Oops!! That could have been disastrous!
I also did a bit of on-line shopping yesterday. Basically, I'm pretty much done with the shopping part. There are only a couple more things that I need to get (as soon as I figure out what they are!). Most all my cards have been addressed and put in the mail, so I'm in pretty good shape.
Today, I'm hoping to get a lot more of the wrapping finished. I'd like to get all my "mail away" boxes to the post office by the middle of the week. That's my goal right now.
My next big project will be to shop for airline tickets for my trip to Florida, and maybe a new suitcase. The suitcase is a "maybe" item. I am going to try to learn how to pack for two weeks in just a carry on bag. Now that would be a big help for me.
Every year, I try to downsize what I have to carry when I travel. I may be travelling alone this year, so this is very important. One suitcase, one tote bag and one doggie travel case. That's about all I can handle.
Now on to some fun stuff. I dug out one of the Christmas scrap kits from a few years ago when I was designing collab kits with my friend Su. This kit is my part of the collab. I hope you can use it for some of your holiday scrap pages.
Here are your download links:
Now I'm off to the kitchen to make a fresh cup of coffee, and then it's back to the "wrapping" table. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
