Yes I've been missing in action. It hasn't been for lack of inspiration, I've just been busy. The house is finally decorated and that only took FOREVER. I love Christmas and I love decorating and I'm of the school that if it's worth doing it's worth overdoing. The Christmas critters have come out of hibernation and are in front of the fireplace waiting for Santa. I'm hoping it will be cool enough Christmas morning to actually light the fireplace. We've been able to do that exactly once in the 10 years we've been here, it's usually quite warm on Christmas, unlike Thanksgiving when it usually freezes.
No baking yet as I'm trying to lose some weight so I'm waiting till closer to Christmas before I bake what Mac affectionately calls "Fat Pills".
I like shopping at Etsy, you find so many unusual and one of a kind gifts, plus you get to support small business's.
Sunday night while watching football I made out my Christmas cards, it's always fun to watch Dallas lose (sorry Cowboy fans) so my cards are full of cheerful messages.
Every year I admire my neighbor's yard decorations, particularly the deer. We finally broke down and bought one (actually bought 2, but we're waiting for the other one to be delivered) and put it out by my "Narnia" light post. Deer wander through our yard nearly every night and I wonder what they think of my shiny little deer.
