« Part 1201: Rough Spots Part 1202 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 1203: All Is Calm . . . »

OK – I paid the price for my half a week of artistic adventure. Yesterday I needed to play “catch up” and was absolutely worn out by evening.

Needless to say I made no progress on my painting. But it will be there for me when the holidays are over. Perhaps the time away will do me good.

For today’s post, I want to re-post one of my favorite blogs that I have written. I know it is kind of cheating, but it was fun and cute and since I have many more readers now than I had when it was posted originally, I thought you would all enjoy it.

Merry Christmas to you all. Thank you all for giving me a reason to get up and get moving every day. Your friendships and inspirations are gifts that I receive each and every day. I mean that.

Enjoy your days to the fullest.

“Remember: No man is a failure who has friends.”

Enjoy the story . . .

It seemed like only yesterday when we realized the season was upon us:

We donned our gay apparel:

Planned out how we were going to decorate:

And got to work.

The first order of business was to put up the tree:

We may have had some trouble along the way:

But in the end, we figured it all out and just took in the beauty of what we created:

But we couldn’t rest there! There were stockings to be hung:

Windows to clean. (Hey! stop fooling around there!):

And gifts to wrap:

As we dreamed of our own gifts that Santa may bring:

But now it’s all almost done. And it is time to take a break:

We still have some cooking to do:

But everything will get done in time for us all to sit down and have a great dinner with loved ones and friends:

And enjoy all that they holidays bring us:

I want to take this opportunity to say Merry Christmas to all of you! Remember to take time to enjoy the season and have some FUN! To those of you who don’t celebrate Christmas – have a wonderfully happy new year!

Thank you for all your blogs, and a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from an ice covered Missoula, Mt.
We should thaw out by noon and be able take our cleats off, but we will still have a sort of white Christmas.
