Where has the year gone - just a few more days and we will be into 2009. Have I accomplished much during this past year - I suppose so. Cooking, laundry and cleaning house don't count: but they sure do take hours to complete.
Christmas decorations are still in place...won't take those down until after New Year's day. Speaking of Christmas my sweet honey and I went to Wal-Mart today -just the usual weekly jaunt. While there did check out the isles containing all the decorating items at 50% off. Did pick up a few things for in the house...Leon got some more outside lights. Bought some gold chargers for the table...have never used chargers before...part of my family will know what they are- but doubt if my hunky men will know...they will probably think just a big gold plate to pile food on. Also bought 8 place setting of red stoneware....the red is more burgandy than bright red...had raised holly berrys and leaves as a pattern on them. Casual like - not fancy....will probably use them next year for the whole month of December.
I got so aggravated at myself today...last week needed to get a replacment bulb for the flickering lights that are on the tree. I had bought the string of lights at Hobby Lobby several years ago...had not seen any before these and have not seen any afterwards. Anyway, one was burned out so stopped by Lowe's and bought one bulb...to the tune of $3.99 each...so just got one. Today while at Wal-Mart I spotted same size bulb (different brand) in their 50% off area...today's cost was $.63 each. So I purchased 4 of them - just in case I need more next year.
Today here in central Oklahoma the weather has been cloudy most of the day with the wind gusting to probably 20 miles per hour (give or take)...but the best part the temperature has been in the 70's all afternoon. Now this morning it was a bit cooler and we had 100% moisture in the air...sort of foggy and real damp...It would have been terrible had the temperature been down in the 20's.
Still doing some hand quilting - probably mid January I will get the sewing machine to whirling once again with starting another quilt. Not sure what fabric I will select from my huge stash or what pattern I will use...will just wait and see what talks to me at the time.
May God give you many Blessings!
