Do I dare tell you that while taking a quick pic of these warmers that we are wearing tee shirts and enjoying weather above 80 degrees this weekend? Not feeling very "wintery" around here lately - I'm having a difficult time getting motivated to decorate the tree and finishing the decorations. Instead, I'm feeling the pull of going outside and going for a bike ride, a walk, anything but adding an additional mess to the house that I've already got going on. Hopefully, by the end of the day today I'll have things picked up, dusted, laundry completed, marketing done, Christmas shopping with Mom finished, AND the tree done! Sounds like a busy day - oh ya, I also have to head down the street and make an appearance at a Christmas party at the neighbors open house. (Do you think she'd mind if I just hauled her decorated tree down to my house and borrow it for this year?) This woman goes into over drive for the holidays, she has three decorated trees in her house (one in the livingroom, one in the den, and one in her BEDROOM!). I'm still trying to just get one tree completed....although one year I too went into over drive and even had a small tree in my kitchen.
What's been happening since you last stopped by??
Here are the wrist warmers I cranked out during my jury duty....yep, they do let you knit while waiting.
Here's a quick knit to put away until the stork arrives (we won't know until the moment of birth what's been under construction), anyway, I'm knitting something boy, something girl, something "could be for either". I love the yarn used on top, I bought it because it has angora but mostly because of the name - Yum Yum.....
I love anything with fluff.
I plan to share Christmas in my house with you this week.....you are my motivation for getting it done. I see your blogs all you overly talented over acheivers out there!! The perfect trees, cookies, decorated mantels, wrapped packages under the tree......I would LOVE one of you to show me your sink full of dishes and the vacuum sitting in the middle of the room....I have decided I will be the blogger of "Truth".
|A Peddling We Will Go!!|
|I really should be cleaning the house but who wants to do that when we can do this??|
Here, see mine? I've been telling you the house is a mess!!! Let's think of these as the "before" pictures....
the "later" will hopefully come by mid week.
Have a great day, be back soon, have fun baking, shopping, mailing boxes, or whatever it is that brings on the holiday cheer to your heart!
