Starting to Feel Much Better

I went ahead and made the papal decision to stay out of the restaurant until at least Monday because this flu bug has been slow to exit my system.  God knows when I just need some down time.  I have learned to listen to Him.

There is still so much that I still need to finish up before the big day arrives, but I am not stressing over anything because I have also learned that there is no use in that.  Stressing over things is just not productive.  I do what is feasible and it is what it is...

I have a nice winter storm to track for the later part of this weekend which may or may not include measurable amounts of white stuff falling from the sky.  That makes me very happy, because if you knew me well you would understand already just how much I love weather, especially when it involves words like "snow" and "Winter Storm Warnings"...for which I foresee being posted by this Friday evening for the Mid Atlantic Seaboard and points North.

I have Christmas presents to finish up today and tomorrow.  I am loving this down time where I can just sit and stitch to my heart's content.

Two more runners, three neck warmers, four stockings, and six sets of towels are on the "get finished" list.  If I get past that, then I might make a few totes, too....but that is wish casting right there.

I made some Sugar Cookie Cut Outs last night and got them frosted and decorated...they are all gone this morning.  I now know that I can not leave treats out on the counter because "the boys" will get to them and EAT THEM ALL.  So, in addition to sewing, I will be baking some more this evening.  Ask me if I mind???

I hope you are enjoying the last few hours before the holiday, but please promise me you will not stress about what isn't done.

This is Home Girl and I'm Straight Chillin' this year...with a big smile on my face.

Loving the fabric choice for the table runner. It's so happy and retro!!

I am also watching that forecast. Snow on Christmas? Yeah, baby! It would be great if my peeps got to stay here an extra day.

Feel better, stay warm and have yourself a Merry little Christmas!!

Sorry you are under the weather, but I am with you on the theory that outside forces are at work to make us slow down and get some rest! I have three little girl dresses to finish, but they enjoy getting my package late. Gives them another gift opening event!

I'm stressed out! We have 16 people coming to our house Christmas day evening, and are we ready??? NO!

Glad you are feeling better. :)

Happy Christmas!
