Well hello, It's Christmas Day, and what am I doing? I am sitting alone in my bedroom writing to no one because chances are that's who will be reading this. My family is all downstairs watching some dumb movie or another, which I have less than zero interest in doing,. So.....here I sit. Don''t get me wrong I'm not feeling sorry for myself or anything, I just think it's pretty pathetic that in 51 years I've not managed to affect anyone enough that, even on my favorite holiday, they miss me.  No friends or family have even asked if I want to come down. Including my DH of 30 years.
O.K. maybe I am feeling a little bit sorry for myself.
I am also waiting for it to start to snow which it is supposed to do Sometime today....that would make this my very first white Christmas!!! I really love this time of year, the songs, the feelings, the decorations, all of it, it makes me feel loved...usually.
In other news my daughter is here from Virginia for the weekend she looks great! I wonder if she knows how much I miss her? Probably not.Well It appears I have a pity party to attend so I'll sign off for now, talk to ya'll soon.

Is in three days and we have everything  bought paid for wrapped tagged ribbon and bowed and sent. Now that might sound like bragging, and maybe it is, it's just that I'm so darned amazed that it's done I couldn't help but tell ya'll!! We are having 7 for Christmas dinner this year so it should be fun. I hope I get, well lots of stuff you couldn't care less about. But most of it is for one craft or another. I did finally take pics of some of my projects, now I Just need to figure out how to get them out of my camera!! (Do you know if shaking it will help???)  I've been crocheting a lot, in fact I made more than 2 dozen hats in less than a month. It's a good thing Christmas was coming or I don't know WHAT I would have done with them all! LOL
Anyway I truly hope that you and your loved ones have a joyful, magical, harmonious, holiday. I'll try to check back in before new years and tell you how my day went.
Live peace

That time of year

Well, the tree is up thanks to DH, the house and yard are decorated and almost all our gifts are bought or made.(I know I can't believe it either) and now it's truly a time to be happy and feel the love and Joy that family brings.   I think, that during the holidays we all try just a little bit harder to over look other peoples foibles and the small irritants of day to day life. Or at least we should. 
This year however I find myself with less family because my younger sister disowned me, told me a bunch of lies about mt Dad's final months and then made it so I can't even contact her. Great way for a 41 year old to act right? Still it does make me sad, partially because it's this time of year and partly just because I'm rapidly running out of family!! {sigh} Ah well, there's nothing I can do about it so I hereby resolve not to think about it and not to let it bother me. This is my Favorite time of the year and dang it I intend to enjoy it!!!!!
     I guess I should run now, I do still have a lot of wrapping and packing and sending to do!! Till next time 
               HO HO HO        Merry Christmas!!!
