Holiday Busyness

I've been so busy w/all the holiday decorating & shopping & stuff & life in general. This doesn't leave much time for knitting or blogging about it.

Things that I love about Christmas. Decorations & baking. I have some favorite ornaments that bring back a lot of wonderful memories. I love to make pizelles & I love to make fudge w/my family.

I love some Christmas TV programs/movies. My favorite Christmas movie is White Christmas. In fact, I love old movies! Sometimes, I think that I was born in the wrong era, but then again....I wouldn't have the Internet & all this contact w/my friends & family, esp.; my knitting friends. Or, all this access to all these wonderful (free) knitting patterns.

Speaking of the Internet....Yahoo! has been giving me fits. It keeps telling me that I'm no longer signed in & I just signed in. What a headache!

Things that I dislike about this time of year. The busyness of Christmas. It's so hard to enjoy it when you're kept so busy. Just my opinion here, but I sure could do without certain commercials that are on TV right now. I especially detest the "Duh!" car advertisement. (The Hyundai Big Duh Holiday Commercials). I hate that expression...Duh! If my kids want to set me off real fast, this is all that they have to say.

Well, I need to go....off shopping that is. I really should start knitting Christmas gifts in January, so maybe I can be ready in time. LOL! I feel a New Year's Resolution coming on.......more knitting....more yarn in 2008!

I'll make this short since you are so busy. When you get the Sign-in Page on Yahoo (after you're already signed in), just hit the Back arrow (previous page). I saw this idea on someone's blog so knew that I wasn't the only one having to deal with this glitch at Yahoo.

Sounds like you enjoy getting ready for Christmas. I'm afraid I seriously lack in the decorating skills department. Glad you are enjoying yourself. Renate

Enjoy your holiday. Our baking starts Monday :)
Last year I made myself nuts trying to finsh 3 quilts in Dec for gifts and I vowed if they weren't done by Nov then I bought a different gift and saved the quilt for another event. Worked good so far, I still need to wrap but the new kitty loves ripping paper-He can't read and must think they're all for him-lol. I have a few small stocking stuffers to get and I'm pretty much done in the shopping department. The thing I hate most is writing out all the Christmas cards- I can't just sign our names I have to personalize them. That I should start in Jan- it takes forever...lol
