Did you see it??


We've been watching the moon and the planets this week...what a lovely Fall show...

Well, I did not leave the property on Black Friday, no-sir-ee...I did venture out this afternoon, however, and it was not bad, which was my plan =-) I had to go to the P.O. and that was the most crowded place of the 4 places I went, but even that wasn't bad. I do realize that it will only get worse as the time passes so I plan to get my act together as soon as possible. I only have two packages to mail this year and will get them ready soon. Today I mailed DS's birthday box; his birthday is always my priority in early December (no Christmas prep until after it...ever...). This will be the first birthday I have not seen him or made him a cake in all his 27 years on the planet and I don't like it one bit...nope...I know I'll be thinking of him all day on his day and missing him so much...this thing of families being spread out all over the country/world sucks...truly...Happy Birthday, my "little" red-headed guy, xoxo...




I've been knitting (yet another scarf, it's what I do) and reading (all relaxing and entertaining, not a lot of thinking) and catching up on DVR recordings (Days of Our Lives, still watching after 36 years)...a peaceful, lazy 4-day weekend...most enjoyable =-) Now if I could just get some fabric and/or quilting into that mix, all would be looking up in my creative world...One day it'll happen again...
Have a great week!

Sadly the fog has been rolling in this week so I haven't seen "it." The two planets are Jupiter and Venus, by the way. And next time you are out stargazing, say hello to Orion. He is just beginning his march across the winter sky.

You'll put some quilting into the mix soon enough. When you're ready.

Sounds like a wonderful weekend - just the sort of thing to re-charge the batteries. Love the scarf and the stack of books!

I certainly understand not getting ready for Christmas before your son's Dec birthday; that has always been my practice here too. But, my neighbors all like to decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving and our street looks like a cheap version of Disneyland for the entire month of Dec. gack!

I am doing some mindless stitching and hoping that it doesn't look mindless when I am done; as in, What was I thinking? Uh, nothing.

Oh thanks for the picture of the sky. I had been looking forward to seeing this but it was cloudy here (surprise!) and so I couldn't. I did see it the day before the moon appeared though, so I'm grateful for that.
