frosty arrived


my neighbor  came over the other day 
with this sweetie
in the summertime when  I was cleaning
and getting rid of old propane tanks
(I had 3)
she asked if she could take them

I immediately said YES trying not to show my enthusiasm
at getting them out of my sight

little did I know she had a creative plan for them
FROSTY came to my house


and this pumpkin guy she made for the gal across the street
how cute are these?

I wish I could ask her if she makes elves
I would get one for my sister in law


stocking up


stocking up on cookie making supplies
some nuts



some chocolate of course




and filling the sugar and flour canisters
to be at the ready come cookie time
I will make a basic dough
then make some as sugar cookies
some with m&ms
some with nuts
and maybe even some with coconut

if you take some of the dough and put a peppermint extract in
and half of it a little red food color
then you take little ropes of red and non colored and
twist them then shape into a candy cane cookie

after all isnt Christmas partly about the Christmas cookies?
Clint Black thinks so........***wink***

I sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
The ones that look like Santa Claus
Christmas trees, bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Now, Christmas cookies are a special treat
The more she bakes the more I eat
And sometimes I can't get myself to stop
Sometimes she'll wait till I'm asleep
She'll take the ones I didn't eat
And put those little sprinkly things on top

I sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
The ones that look like Santa Claus
Christmas trees, bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Now those sprinkly things just makes things worse
'Cause it makes them taste better than they did at first
And they're absolutely impossible to resist
Some disappear to who knows where
But I make sure I get my share

And those kids just stand there waiting for the ones I miss

Sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
Sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
She gets mad that they're all gone
Before she gets the icing put on
Sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Now there's a benefit to all of this
That you might have overlooked or missed
So now let me tell you the best part of it all
Every time she sticks another batch in the oven
There's 15 minutes for some kissin' and'a huggin'
That's why I eat Christmas cookies all year long

I sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
The ones that look like Santa Claus
Christmas trees, bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

lets make Christmas great again


I almost spit out my coffee when I saw this elf idea
some people have such creativity




and this is another little cutie
that doesnt look too difficult

I really need to finish up nieces
stuff so I can get on with mine 

I think we have a problem here Houston........LOL

anywho, I have been feeling a little under the weather lately
but still going to work
as the boss isnt feeling well either
and we are the only 2 in the office
someone has to be there for the trucks

today I leave early to go to the eye
doctor
yeah this stupid eye thing has not gone away
with hot compresses

not sure what he will do but not looking
forward to it
especially with a stomach that is already upset

have a great day my friends!

I am making more of these washcloths.
they are a mindless little knitting project 
and with a nice bar of fancy soap
make a cute last minute gift

I will get plenty of practice for sure as I have THREE of 
these to make

are YOU using books and patterns you have
accumulated over the years?

sometimes we tend to hoard them
and not use them........
but I want to make them all

I may need to make a few of these
for my brothers in ME
