Countdown Till Santa - Just Five More Nights!

December 20, 2017

Good morning.  It's just a little after midnight, but I figure as long as I'm up I should post here so that I can maybe sleep a bit late in the morning.  I've been watching all the exciting jewelry sales on JTV (Jewelry Television Channel), and gosh!  I want it all!  hahaha. 

Really though, I've been very good.  I did manage to find, and order, a couple items that I want for upcoming gift events.  I absolutely love a super great sale.  And the good part is that most everything had free shipping. 

Yesterday, (Tuesday) I really didn't do very much.  I was going to go shopping, but dwarf Helen wasn't feeling very good so we decided to go today.  Instead, I kept myself busy most of the day doing --- well, I'm not sure what, but I really was busy. 

One of the things that I did was to photograph the scarf that I'm making with the new striping yarn.  The colors did not come out so good, but at least you can get an idea of how the yarn works.

I don't think I'd use this yarn on an afghan.  I use the variegated yarns on the afghans because I like the colors to change much sooner.  This yarn, though, is good for scarfs.  I'm sure you can find other patterns and items online that would look good with this yarn.

The weather yesterday was awesome.  Pogo spent most of his day sitting in front of the storm door watching everything that was happening outside.  Our squirrels managed to keep him quite amused. 

Last evening, Joe finished painting the spare room, so tonight we can start putting the furniture back in the room.  Hopefully, today, I'll be able to find the curtains for that room to finish it off.  I think I should also pick up a new window shade too. 

I also spent a couple hours on my laptop working on a new Christmas quick page for you.  This one features the real reason for the season.  I used a few pieces from Snow Raven's Christmas kits, "Funky Christmas" and "Christmas Dreams."  The kits are free, and Snowy shares a lot of her beautiful artwork on her blog.  Pay her a visit, and enjoy.

Later today, Pogo has his appointment at the beauty salon.  He's just getting a trim, and not a full haircut.  I'm sure he'll look good.  Actually, he would probably look great dressed in a paper bag!  He's just so handsome!

Now I think before I hop back into bed, I'll make myself a hot cup of apple cider.  Mmmmm.  That should make my tummy happy so that I can fall back to sleep.  On that happy note, I'll take my leave.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

p.s.  Remember to be good.  Santa Claus will be coming in just five more nights!  Woo Hoo!

Merry Christmas, Edna! I just posted on my blog that Christmas is coming way too fast. So much to do! Your scarf is beautiful. I would use that yarn for a scarf too. I have two scarves and three dishcloths to get done before Christmas. I hope I can make it. Have a good day today. Hope you got to sleep in a little.
