Around the bend

Yes, Christmas is coming.  Everyone is rushing here and there. 
I really try to get  things done early and stay out of stores.  I had to walk through a huge mall last week to find the restaurant where my doll club had their Christmas luncheon.  I felt like a fish in a bowl.  Almost claustrophobic.  
I am now going to enjoy the rest of the season. I still have cards to send and presents to wrap and messes to clean up.  I hope you can all slow down enough to enjoy the little things.
BloggerImageThe little creatures are my beginning needle felting projects. I have a ways to go.  It's fun.  Well fun until your little dog steals your wool and you have to chase him down.

I'll be back soon.

I hate malls too, so many people rushing like chickens without heads. It only gets worst as time runs out. I only have half of my shopping done. Today I have a cleaning service cleaning my house, A birthday gift from my daughter Christine. They are very good at what they do. I was pleasantly surprised.

That baby is some cute. What a blessings.

Seasons's Greetings.

I haven't been in a mall in such a long time. On-line shopping has spoiled me. But I still remember the fun I used to have running from store to store to finish my holiday shopping. Note, the magic words here are "used to have". Now I let my fingers do the running around on the keyboard.

Pogo and I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas. You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.

I've been done shopping for quite some time now. Gifts have all been sent to far away places since we have no family coming home this year. Only Hubby and I. However, I have to go to the mall nearly every day to walk...and I detest the mall. With all of the ice and snow outside though it's the only safe place to walk. I go early in the morning before it gets busy. And this time of year, I actually like to sit down after my walk and watch all of the hustle and bustle as people run to and fro.

Your grandbaby is growing so fast! I know it will be fun to have presents under the tree for the little ones. Love your beautiful wagon filled with toys! It's a fun time to play with our dolls and bears! Holiday hugs, Diane

Your displays are so cute. How fun to be part of a doll club. I don't like malls either. I can't think of the last time I went to a mall. Just to Sears - in and out - and you know...they did not have a shower curtain. Said you have to buy them online. Can you believe that? Your baby is adorable!
