I am looking for Wednesday. Does anyone know where it went? I think I blinked and it was gone!

Oh my goodness! I can’t believe that the day went so quickly. (Drink your coffee fast, Cozmo! I think it is going to be a short one!)

I got out of the house by 9am and I didn’t get home until probably 5pm. Meetings and errands all day. Not even time to see Bernie and Ellen! I had to food shop too so I had to put all the food away when I got home. I will be making a nice lasagna for Saturday when I am making dinner for a birthday party and I wanted to get all the shopping done for it.

I had to do about an hour of paperwork and then ate and by that time it was 7pm. Believe it or not, I actually went out then and took my walk. It was dark then, but in the two hours since arriving home, there was about half an inch of show on the ground. Enough to look pretty anyway. I would have taken pictures, but it was dark so just turn off your computer screen and you can pretend I did. :)

I got home, wrapped some stuff and I was finished for the day. No painting. No drawing. No woodworking. :( It really caught up with me and I was TIRED!

I did read some mail and skimmed through Ms. Debbie’s LJ monthly newsletter. I saw the contest on joinery for January. She had listed about 15 types of joinery. But I thought “ah ha!” I thought of something that she didn’t list. I’m not telling though. I am going to really, really try to get something done in time to enter the contest. My mind is thinking now and I think that I can add something unique into the mix.

I wrote it down on my idea list. So when all this craziness passes and I am looking for a direction it will be there to jump out at me and kick me in the butt to do something creative. I will be glad to have it in my arsenal of ideas.

Such is the season!

Today I am hitting the ground running. I have lots to do and no where to go. Hopefully, I will make more progress today on things and have something interesting to talk about tomorrow. I have to be careful what I wish for though! ;)

I hope you all have productive days too! Are you all done with your holiday gifts and such? Or are you scrambling around like I am? Let me know. :)

Have a great day no matter what!

I am officially done with Christmas. Well, pretty much. I have everything built.I have all the presents wrapped and under the tree. I have the nuts for the stockings. I have Christmas dinner bought. The ony small thing I have left is to get the fruit for the stockings. I don’t like getting that until a day or two before Christmas. Fruit doesn’t last long this time of year and I dont’ want to be putting rotten fruit in stockings.
I wish my Wednesday haad flown by. I was working on patterns for my latest project. I mentioned it was the worst patterns I’ve ever bought. Well, spending all day with the printer, two trips to town for printer cartridges, lots of coffee and cursing, and for some reason a hurting back that is keeping me in the house today, I am finally ready to start cutting, I think.
So I think I’m going to find “The Christmas Story” today and watch it. I got that idea from reading your blog (from yesterday I think). I am trying so hard to get into the holiday spirit. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas. I’m sort of just going through the motions. I’m telling everyone Merry Christmas while in the back of my mind all I can think is bah humbug.
Maybe if you’d mail me some of that snow Sheila, I could get all Christmasy feeling inside and hang out on your pink cloud for a while. You have a good day, a merry Christmas, a happy New Year, and maybe a productive Thursday.

it’s interesting that your Wednesday went fast, someone on Facebook noted that Friday seemed to be VERY slow to arrive and for me Wednesday was “normal” but I woke up thinking today was Friday – in my mind I’ve completely skipped Thursday!
A weird week I guess

William – I love that movie too! I have a bunch of Christmas movies I try to watch every season, usually while I am wrapping or painting or finishing up on gifts. It really relaxes me and helps me get into the feel of the season.

Debbie – It is just so busy! I can’t believe that tomorrow is Friday already. I wish the days lasted longer. There is so much to do and enjoy and some times it seems that I don’t get half of what I want done. I guess it is part of being busy. :)
