I hope everyone is enjoying the start of the holiday season. I know I am!
The past month was a hectic one, getting ready for our Christmas Open House here at The Keepingroom,and as a member of our towns parade committee I was ask to" do a craft show", so I gathered some talented vendors for what became the " A Gathering In The Hall " show....it was a lot of stress, but worth it ! I had a great time with all the other vendors....folks I consider friends as well.
My husband and I, along with other committee members decorated the town square and then gathered with friends and neighbors for the tree lighting ceremony, that included hot chocolate and Christmas carols.
Now, that all the towns festivities are over, I can focus on my own.
Our home has been decorated inside and out, but I'm sure I will be tweaking things until it's time to take the decorations down.
I've been know to decorate, then re-decorate....:)
I'm ready to shop and shop and shop some more!!
I've added a number of Christmas photos to my side bar, I hope you enjoy them.
I have been trying to come up with an idea for a post, but I seem to be having a brain freeze today or perhaps I can blame it on menopause. That seems like a good excuse to me. I can't think of anything particularly interesting to blog about. It's been a rather slow day at the shop,mainly my regulars. I don't see them as customers anymore, but as friends. I look froward to their visits. I thought I'd do some crafting, things were going great till my sewing machine decided to throw a fit....I wasn't in the mood to fight. We'll work out our differences later! I rearranged my computer room AGAIN. I rearrange that room more than any room in the house. It just never feels right to me. I like it for now! Our new kitty, Rodger is a piece of work. He is into and on everything. We plan to have him declawed as soon as he is old enough. There is a new method where they use laser, much more humane. Our daughter, Jennifer had her cat Emma done and there were no bandages and Emma was walking like nothing had ever happened. I sure hope it warms up a bit for the little Ghost and Goblins. It's no fun wearing a coat over your costume! I'll post some photos of our little Goblins later. Are any of you Jon and Kate fans? I love the show. I'm sad to hear it has been canceled. I know Kate could be a bit of a nag, but I think Jon lost his mind! Kate always makes me laugh or cry, I'll miss the show. Speaking of shows that I love, what ever happened to Paranormal State? I like the other ghost hunter shows, but that was my fave! I'd watch that then have to sleep with the light on...:) October through December is party time in our family. We have eight birthdays during those months, five being in November. Birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas= lots of good food! So much for brain freeze, more like brain clutter!
It's a wet raw day here in Ohio,temps are in the upper 30's
I snapped the picture below this morning, as you can see it's rather dark and dreary around here.
I'm going to freeze when I get to the shop to open. The heats been off all week! I wish I would have gotten up earlier and walked over and turned it on. My shops only a few feet from my home, I guess I'm feeling lazy today. Well buds I need to get motivated. Hope you all have blessed day! Linda*
