Now I just have to wrap. Then I can relax and enjoy the holidays. I've got my menus planned for the three holiday dinners that I'm in charge of. Did that at work yesterday when I had free time.

Now tonight I'm just coloring images, don't know if they'll be Christmas cards this year or maybe next. But the coloring does help to relax me too.

I purchased a video on coloring with Copics. It should be here this week. Figured I'd start with watching a video before I invest in the actual markers. Might be cheaper for me.

Soni & Maggie, thanks for the lovely Christmas cards! They both came today.

Maggie thanks for for the link to find you here....I was going to PM both of you.

Sorry to hear of everyone being sick. I was down & out myself last week but am feeling much better. On the plus side, that gave me a chance to finish the Christmas quilt (finally!) that I made from the panel that Debby send last Christmas QSS. Now I'm working on quilting Libby's~ can you believe she will be 7 in a few months?

I've been home sick from work today. Wasn't feeling the best yesterday at work, then during the night my stomach pain got worse. Today was dealing with the big D. So just stayed home. Sorted out the gifts and have them grouped for wrapping. Might start that tomorrow night. Each person is getting one box, but with more than one gift inside. Saves on wrapping that way. I used to love to wrap presents, but now it seems like such a chore. Gift bags will be used nexted year.

Anyone got a suggestions on how to wrap a tricycle??
well....

in a bicycle bag... or a Big Bow...

I bet Addison will love that !

I am with you on the wrapping... ugh...

what a great idea... If I did not have the SU markers I would like to try some but I cannot justify it now...I may try a few, in knowing I cannot and will not buy a lot !

If you enjoy the video, please let know... maybe I can borrow it??

Hey Sue - Glad you could join us tonight!

I'm still putting the remodel in order. Can't really work on anything until Bob can put the new worksurface in place when he gets home.

But that's progress, Soni!

I need to run downstairs real quick and print these last 3 tags. Then I'll have a total of 9 left to put together and I THINK everything on the stamp side will be labeled and in it's place - except for what I can't do until the worksurface is put into place.

Would you believe I filled all 8 of those drawers in those 2 storage units I bought last month? LOL Yeah, it was easy.

I used to have all of my deckle scissors in a carousel bucket I'd made (with pockets) but I didn't like where it had to sit and it was looking shabby so I rearranged some things that were in the cubby holder Bob built me, moving some of it to drawers and put my scissors in 2 of the cubby's.

Aside from the organization, I think I'm looking most forward to a clear work surface with everything at my finger tips... I don't have to pull it out and let it clutter where I'm trying to work.

Yes it is and it really needed done !...

I think I am going to get ready for bed, and get Wally's vaporizer ready too...I am tired so sitting in my chair and reading is what I am ready for I think !...
Plus I need to go to Washington tomorrow, and make 3 stops... so an early night is a good thing...

I think we are expecting snow, I need to check on that...

Goodness, I hope not. I don't know how far North of St. Louis Bob will have gotten by tomorrow - not to mention driving to Chicago in it and turning around to come home. We're suppose to have sleet but that may have changed since the weather report last night hehe

Rest up Soni. Be careful out there tomorrow - but at least it's only to Washington and not all the way into Peoria.

I only have 4 tags left to put together then I'm calling it a night as well. Watch a couple Dr. Quinn's while I wait for Bob to call. Sweet Dreams!

I just caught up on things....

Kelly...sorry to hear about Quackers.


It's been warming up some....it was 65* today. Tomorrow is to be 75* or so.

My head is still stuffed up! I'm still having a little cough. No, I haven't gone to the doctor. It's about what I had earlier this year....which was viral. So, I'm doing what I did then. Musinex D during the day....except when you run out! So, we were at Walmart today...picking up all kinds of stuff. I'm not the only one sick around here!

Hello Suzy, It sure seems that these viruses of this season are long lasting too !... Hope you can and do get over all of it soon... Are you getting plenty of rest too ?

Good Morning... I decided to go run my errands early, and get home before the snow starts... then the next 2 days I can sit inside and watch snow

I plan to make some candy and cookies both days and see what else I can get done !

I hope you all have a great day
SHell, I hope that medicine works and you do not need to get it changed...

We won't be having duck for supper this weekend. Whatever got Quackers came back for Milk last night

On a brighter note...
Sue is not looking forward to bed sharing with Adrian. Adrian is a bed hog -as are most toddlers hehe. I can sleep with her no problem but Kassie trained me years ago and I adore that snuggle time with Adrian. Nothing like opening your eyes in the morning to either seeing a sleeping child or to see her awake, wide brown eyes watching you and see the smile spread across her face when she knows you've caught her. And then there's that softly whispered ' hi grandma'.

So I'm going to text Sue this morning and see if she wants the air mattress downstairs in the office (which means the filing cabinets don't get put into place just yet) and I'll sleep up here with A.

Wonder how Shell is feeling this morning. I hope the medicine is helping. Maybe she's getting some much needed rest.

Since I might be putting the air mattress downstairs I'm pretty much done in the office until the weekend. I can work on it while Bob's out hunting.

Today I'm going to focus on cleaning the upstairs. I do want to hem the table skirts for the work surface and the book case before I put the sewing machine away so that will be first.

I'll check back in around lunch. Have a good day!

Good morning Quackers - It is still morning here!

Sorry I didn't get on much yesterday. It was a busy day here and at home.

Off to catch up. You guys were chatty.

Anyway, I should be better in 24 hours. I sure better be.


I did get some chloreseptic at the store. I used it before I ate lunch, but it isn't helping much. I think I need some advil or tylenol.
Hope that those horse pills have helped and that you're feeling better. Chloreseptic might work, but it's nasty tasting.

I get like that in the winter also. My skin dries out so bad as well as my nose membranes. I try not to have the house too warm and dry.

It's frigid here today. It was 20 when I was at the doctor's office. With the wind .... wow.
I know. You hear California and you think it's all sunny, hot, and beautiful. Not so. Their weather is about the same as it is here. It's only getting up to 59 deg. here on Friday so I'll probably be wearing my coat anyway.

We're almost 70 now and it's supposed to get close to 80 by the end of the day.

She was running just ahead of us and plucked it out of the cage bin... "This one's going home with me!" and took off on the run LOL Needless to say, it took Grandpa all of about 2 min to realize what he was getting her for her birthday. We let her ride around in the cart with it til we were ready to check out. She sat on it and held the antanne like she was riding it.
That sounds cute. I think all kids need a pillow pet (and some adults too)

Resting sounds good. I came home with a horrid headache. I think it's from the cold. I still need to walk out to the pond and check on Milk. He's the timid one of the two - go figure that's the one I'd be left with.
I hope Milk is doing okay without Quackers.

I rested for a bit. Jaydin was watching the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

I got up and showed her a video that I saw last night on FB. It's' a YouTube video of an iBand. If you've not seen it, go watch. TOO cool. ALL ipods, ipads, and iphones used for the music.
That's pretty cool. I'll have to watch the whole thing later. Some people have such creativeness.

I watched the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe the other night. Can't wait to see Legend of the Dawn Trader. Hopefully we'll see it in CA.

Hi Sue! Glad you came to chat. No problem. I tried to PM all the Quackers just in case they have a free moment from time to time.

I've never heard of that. I rarely drink soda anyway and no caffeine for me except whatever is in chocolate. No way could I give that up.

I've been home sick from work today. Wasn't feeling the best yesterday at work, then during the night my stomach pain got worse. Today was dealing with the big D. So just stayed home. Sorted out the gifts and have them grouped for wrapping. Might start that tomorrow night. Each person is getting one box, but with more than one gift inside. Saves on wrapping that way. I used to love to wrap presents, but now it seems like such a chore. Gift bags will be used nexted year.

Anyone got a suggestions on how to wrap a tricycle??
So sorry you were feeling poorly yesterday. I have that has passed and you're doing better.

I've heard on the news that many people are using gift bags these days. So much easier.

Your dinner sounds pretty yummy - quick and easy.

Hmmmmm. . . Will it fit in an extra large trash bag?

Now tonight I'm just coloring images, don't know if they'll be Christmas cards this year or maybe next. But the coloring does help to relax me too.

I purchased a video on coloring with Copics. It should be here this week. Figured I'd start with watching a video before I invest in the actual markers. Might be cheaper for me.
I try to do my shopping online also. I hate fighting the crowds at the malls - and that's even before you get in the stores. Parking is a nightmare.

Wow! You're doing 3 holiday dinners! That's a lot. I think I'd do one and the others would be leftovers.

You will LOVE Copic markers. I've been using them for some time now and have invested in quite a few. I even went in November and took the Certification class. I can't wait for next year to take the advanced class.

Maggie thanks for for the link to find you here....I was going to PM both of you.

Sorry to hear of everyone being sick. I was down & out myself last week but am feeling much better. On the plus side, that gave me a chance to finish the Christmas quilt (finally!) that I made from the panel that Debby send last Christmas QSS. Now I'm working on quilting Libby's~ can you believe she will be 7 in a few months?
You are so welcome. Glad you found us.

Sorry you've been under the weather also, but glad that you are feeling better. Are you going to share pictures of the quilt that you did?

Soni, I got your pretty card yesterday also, and thank you for the extra images you sent.

I didn't get to play last night at all. I had a visit to make with a friend from church and after that had Tithing Settlement with the Bishop up at church. Of course he was late, but I expected that.

On the way home I remembered that we were having our Christmas lunch here at work today and I was going to bring Sweet potato cassarole and had not gotten the potatoes, so I had to quickly go up to Kroger and get that. While I was in the area, stopped next door and got a Cranberry Limeade at Sonic. Yummy.

By the time I got home, I really didn't have time for much.
