Merry Christmas one and all...
Yes, I'm a few days late in posting this but as we all know the build up to the holidays leaves some things on the back burner!
Santa was very good to me, of course...I got things to promote my hobbies...a brand new spinning stool and a beautiful wooden swift (now Jack's arms are free to persue his hobbies..HaHa!). Being the Dallas Cowboy fan that I am I received a "Roger Staubach" jersey...#12!!, XM Radio, a book that we can use to enhance our travels, a beautiful sweater with matching turtleneck, Jack made me a beautiful salad tong set from Dogwood, there are many other things that are just as wonderful...there's just not enough time to list each and every one of them. I hope everyone else had their wishes and dreams come true. We have family coming in tomorrow, this is the first time since our wedding that they have been here. They've never come for this Christmas before so we are both really excited about this time with them.

Again...Merry Christmas to all and have a Happy New Year! I need to start thinking of my New Years resolution (besides losing weight).

Great Holiday Cartoon!

Our cat Ace would do this if he could!

Wristwarmers made from my own handspun North Ronaldsay wool. Now...these are for ME!!

Christmas is Coming! Christmas is Coming!

Okay...all completed Christmas gifts are being posted! I'm not naming who they are all for since family may see this!

I love this time of year. I love making gifts for those I care about. Some are easier to make for than others…the men in the family are a little more difficult, so I usually go ahead and buy for them. I’m still working on some gifts for those last minute…OOPS! I have so many things I want to make for myself…I need more time! Funny how work gets in the way of those important things in life.


Yes, Christmas time is here and more and more I see the TRUE meaning of Christmas being removed from every aspect of the season. Here lately it’s the controversy of whether it’s a “Holiday tree” or a “Christmas Tree”. There are people out there who want to remove every shred of moral foundation out of this country.
Our country was founded on Religion, prayer and freedom. I don’t need to give a history lesson on why the Puritans left England. In recent years the prayer has been eliminated from our schools (which I understand the separation of Church & State BUT there should be a choice for children to make a choice to pray or not), the Ten Commandments have been removed from courthouses…now, they want to remove “In God We Trust” from being printed on our currency. What next remove all related words from The Constitution?
When I was a child (and I won’t say how long ago that was) my Grandparents pointed out the fact that on Christmas tree stands in order to make a “condensed” sign they would write “Xmas Trees For Sale” taking Christ out of Christmas.

My statement is: *****JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON*****
