wrap it up

  I am DONE with my shopping. For me it's not really Christmas shopping, but for most of those receiving it is, and I'm not picky about what they call it. For me it's an annual quest to find something for people I care about to make them say "Ooh!" Like the box of chocolate liqueurs my parents sent me made me say "Ooh!"

  So, anyway, shopping is done, and it's all in the mail now, except a couple things that'll fit in envelopes on Monday. And it was fun.

  Another thing I can be proud of is that I've finished 3 projects - the grandnef's socks, the b.i.l's scarf (and now th'Mr wants one just like it, but in red...)... and -tadaaaa- the latch hook rug that I began in the summer of 2008.

  Earlier my mom had asked me if I ever do latch hook projects, and I told her no - and a few weeks later was browsing a craft store and one caught my eye. Now that I've finally completed it, and took over 4 years to do so, I think I have a better grasp on just WHY I don't do latch hook projects.

  I hate this time of year. It's dark dark dark. I don't mind the cold so much, but I really crave daylight, sunlight. Well - six more days till we head back into the light, and ninety days past that'll be Spring! And I have dandelions blooming now.

I dislike the short days too, going to work and coming home in the dark. It always seems as though it takes more time for the days to get longer than shorter. AND of course, our dark days come with far too much snow and cold. :-(

Wow - that's a lot of projects to get finished. Which reminds me...I have an afghan I started 18 months ago. Maybe I'll get something done over Christmas!
