Wishing everyone a beautiful day!
So, today will be our Christmas Eve with my in-laws. Not because this is when we normally do it, but because there MIGHT be a SLIGHT chance of the white stuff on Christmas Eve. Since we can’t have that (no seriously, things get stupid crazy with the in-laws when weather of any kind other than perfectly dry and sunny is involved), I’ll be doing all my Christmas Eve stuff today instead. Hopefully, that doesn’t include watching for weather updates every other minute.
Merry Christmas Eve Eve!
I got all my wrapping done today. Yay! That means I’ll have over a week of seeing my tree nice and full with presents underneath. The only thing left is whatever Hubby needs to do. It feels really good to be done, but… Continue reading “That’s A Wrap”
Today will, hopefully, finish what is left of my shopping. I have one or two things left on my list to take care of, but the last big thing is what the kids do for each other. Continue reading “Finishing Up and Gift Giving”
At least with the decorating part anyway. I still need to get back to work on my nutcracker project, but I think I’m going to need to take a day off to just rest tomorrow. Trying to do all of this over the last week while battling a very nasty cough has just worn me out and I think I need to be done for a bit. Tomorrow is doing to be a veg day where I just sit and soak up all the pretty that is my house for the holidays. Continue reading “And Done!”
Today is our traditional day to put up all of our holiday decorations, but I really needed to finish the trellis project that we started a couple of months ago because it was part of my plan for decorating outside. I really believed that it wouldn’t take that long to get them in place. Once again I was wrong on that. It took nearly 5 hours to get them finished and installed. After several days of working my tail off getting things done, starting on my nutcrackers and for Thanksgiving, I’m already dragging. So, that is probably going to be it for me for the day and I’ll get to the actual decorating again tomorrow. I hate the delay, but I’m thrilled to get one more project off my to do list and out of my garage.
I got started on the giant nutcrackers today. I wasn’t even 10 minutes into the project when I realized that the one part I thought I’d be able to re-purpose, the smaller PVC pipe, is the wrong size. *Sigh*
I have a new project I’m getting ready to start. I’ve spent the last several days getting all the stuff I need and I’m about 90% there. I still have at least one more trip to a craft store and I’m waiting on an order delivery, then I can really dig in. The end goal is to have 2 giant nutcrackers, probably between 5 and 6 feet tall when all is said and done.
