Oh, Barb! It sounds like you're enjoying yourself in an awesome place!

Hello, Slug Twins! (tee hee!)

Linda, you live close to so many great places! I'm a bit envious.

t is the week before Christmas and all through my house, both residents are stirring but NOT looking for a mouse. The children are absent since they long have been grown, with homes and families and friends of their own. But inside my head are lists growing each day, of groceries to purchase and tasks to be done. For soon they will visit and we will have fun.....14 stockings to fill and enjoy, a feast to prepare with favorites for all. ON cleaning tools, on baking, on gifts to deliver, on shopping , on reading, on thinking and creating. To next week's celebration, to family and friends, MERRY CHRISTMAS to ALL! Wish it never had to end.

GOOD MORNING, FOREST FRIENDS!


I've been off the computer for several days. Busy making Christmas cards....Something I had planned to do all year but waited until December! Decided I needed to check the hundreds of emails that had piled up in the last couple days and do a quick check in here. Hope all is well in your world! HUGS!!!

Hi Ladies--we are in Atlanta airport, waiting for our flight home. It was a great convention and we all had a great time. But, as usual, it is good to be heading home!

Good Afternoon--I am finally getting to SCS today...................... I got home around 6:00 last night. Today, I unpacked and am doing wash and trying to get to a normal routine. I am hoping to get a swap organized, swapped and maybe even postal today.

I hope you are having a Terrific Thursday!

GOOD AFTERNOON, FOREST FRIENDS!


Did some shopping this a.m. for gifts that needed to be mailed today. Came home and made several cards to accompany the gifts. Just got home from the post office. So glad to have those gifts mailed! Still have a some Christmas cards to make and mail. Some people won't be getting their card from us until after Christmas.

I'm having some friends' children here on Sunday to make Christmas cookies. This is an annual tradition with these kids. Our oldest DS who lives in CA arrives late Tuesday. So I need to have all crafty stuff completed by Monday so I can clean my guest room/craft room! Christmas eve we've invited my sister and BIL to join us and our sons for dinner. We're having Prime Rib, Caesar Salad, Twice Baked Potatoes....Undecided on dessert. After dinner my sister will go with me to my church for one of the Christmas eve services that is always so beautiful and an special celebration of Christ's birth.

Hi Folks!
Sorry I haven't been on - my computer has been acting up!

I'm sorry you've been ill the past 2 days Jeanette! That is frustrating!! Glad you are feeling better!

And I know you are happy to have your DD & DS with you this Christmas! I also know you'll have many things to do to get ready for Christmas...

OK Lynn - your coal bin is ready for Santa! How about a switch? Or a Rutabega (I hope I spelled that right - it's a vegatable)?

I might put out a drop box, but it sure won't be a coal bucket because I've been very very good this year! LOL

Hello Friends!

Sorry... I went MIA again yesterday. Seems I had a mild set-back. Was so weak that my day went like this - put a load of laundry in the washer, lie in bed, put load of laundry in dryer, lie in bed, fold said, load of laundry, lie in bed.......... and repeat and repeat and repeat.

Oh my goodness! My son is coming today and I'm not ready - the house isn't ready - the gifts aren't wrapped - the groceries aren't purchased. But I'm excited!!! Because my DS is coming today! and my DD is in Anchorage!!! She was able to fly out of the bush with no weather delays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And she'll be flying into St. Louis tomorrow morning, where I'll pick her up at the airport! YAY!!!

Lynn, I see your plan now.... be naughty and get LOTS of coal so you don't freeze in a power outage.

Kathy, hmmmm... wonder if Santa thinks you've been as good as you say. LOL! I love your confidence! (Me? I'll probably get my share of coal.)

Janet, I've never heard about getting rutabaga in one's stocking (for Christmas). Is there a story about that?

Judy, I'm your friend... can I bring my children and come to your house on Sunday to make cookies? It sounds like soooooo much fun!

Barb, I love your cute graphic!

Hi to you, too, Angie!

Hi Forest Friends!

Jeanette, I was taught that putting the rutabaga in the stocking was Scottish tradition, it was something given to a child who had misbehaved during the year. I always gave mine back to my mother to cook it for dinner one night. She would peel it, cook it, then mash it so it looked like mashed potatoes except it was a yellowish orange color. With butter on it, it actually tasted good.

I know you'll enjoy your daughter coming in today!! And I know you'll get things done!

That's interesting, Janet... I'd never heard that Scottish tradition. I love hering how other countries celebrate the holidays! Thank you!

My DD doesn't arrive until tomorrow. DS arrives today. But the truth is... he's more help than she is anyway.
