Good Morning--I am off to Coffee, Cards and Biscotti this morning at my demos house--I saw the 5 cards and they sure are cute! Then, home to swap out the Santa cards and maybe take them to the post office to mail if there is time. Tomorrow--the house transformation to Christmas begins....................... YAY! We already did the outside lights last week--still need to do the roping and trim on the deck railing.

Not too well................... we have a 10 foot tree and it seems that the last couple of years, there are some lights out. I take it back to the garden center where we got it and they fix them for a cost--pretty cheap in my opinion as I have no patience to try to find the bulbs that are out. Last year the guy told me it will happen to more lights as it is getting older--11 years old. Well--this year, three of the four sections have lights out--and one has almost half of the lights out. So--we put all three sections in my car and I am headed there this morning to drop it off. I am also going to look at new trees there and depending on the cost of repair this time as there are so many more strands that are out, I may come home with a new tree.

Good Morning--hope your Wednesday is starting out great!

I am starting the Christmas decorating today--after buying a new tree yesterday......... It is kind of a long story and quite an afternoon of visiting 5 stores looking for a new tree while transporting our current 10 foot tree (three sections with lights burned out in all of them) in the back of my SUV. End result--a new tree a bit smaller than the one we have had for 11 years, so I am sure I will need to decide on which ornaments are used this year and put others away for another year. We still might have the lights on the other tree repaired, depending on the cost and try to sell it next summer at a rummage sale. The main tree will get decorated today and maybe a few of the smaller ones too.

Good Morning--Day 2 of the Christmas Transformation is here. Day 1 went well----the main tree is maybe 1/2 done and I have completed 5 smaller trees--Packers, Badgers, Boyd's Bears, Patriotic and a Vintage one. I got a couple of small 3-4 foot trees last year on clearance, so I am going to add a wine tree and a teacher tree. I want to finish the main tree, plus all of the additional trees--last year I had 18 total, so I think I will in the 20's this year. This weekend we wil do the roping on the deck rail and I might put some more lights in a couple more shrubs--I bought some LED ones last year and I sure like the way they look.

Have a Teriffic Thursday!

Hi everyone,

I am just checking in to see how long the list of swappers has gotten.



I enjoy hearing about your decorating, Barb.

I would never have the patience for that many trees!

yes work has been a pain in the rear....being oh so polite here (and I rhyme)

Today is Dec 1., I have only one tree. I LOVE turning the lights on every morning, OMG its so beautiful, peaceful, serene...

my decorating has been downsizing alot, i go through the things and see what mood i am in each year...this year its is pointsettia...found a lovely greenhouse that sells nice springtime plants but then they close in May...and I completely forget about them...well driving by and the sign said Pointsettia...and they were many colors: red, pink, white, red and pink, red and white, red and kelly green, kelly green...and they had a pointsettia rose---the petals had a crumpled look so i had to get one of those...

i think i'm going back today---i had purchased 3 6" pots...now i'm going back for a few in the 2" pots....then i'll be done.

planning on getting some trim around house painted and clean up my craft room, had just bought some SU cardstock from demo. and she said she will be delivering it today

have a great day ladies (my did I babble)

Good Afternoon--it is smelling like roses in Wisconsin as the Badger football team creamed Nebraska 70-31 last night to earn a spot in the Rose Bowl on New Years Day! It was an outstanding game.

All of the Christmas decorations are done--inside and out! Final total is 25--all but 3 have lights and/or oranments on them.

I hope you have a great Sunday!

Good morning - and in need of coffee!! What a night! Was sitting here filling out paperwork when I heard - what a I thought was a cat - screeching out front over and over. We live on a crazy main road so I thought it was hurt or injured - went out to check and it was a few people running up and down the road screaming a name.

Short story version: BAD car accident at the end of our street ... a car broke down and didn't put on it's lights or blinkers and the lady didn't see it and smashed into the back of it. This street gets pretty dark at night and she got very badly hurt and in the process her little doggie flew out of the car She was frantically screaming up and down the street, hysterically crying out her name saying have you seen a small black dog on a leash, her name is Zoey ... it broke my heart. The sound in her voice was pure terror - the sound of pain and fear The saddest thing was she broke her arm! It was there, just limp and she had to be in horrible pain and yet she refused medical attention and told the cop she was going to find her dog - to which he called his partner to help look as well. Supposedly she saw her run from the accident site down our street and then it disappeared. I felt helpless - trying to catch up on paperwork but yet I jumped into my car and drove around for over getting home at almost 1:30 am! I have no idea how to know this morning if she found her doggie or not but I sure prayed she did. ** Cross your fingers and toes!**

Your picture reminds me of my neighbors...yes, we have camels in PA less than two miles away. Amish families raise them and sell their milk. If you google camel milk, you will see they claim it to halp with those with autism, and many other things. A friend took this picture.
