Wow!  What happened to this year?  It's almost Christmas already.  We had a great Thanksgiving.  My quilting has had to come to a stop for a while.  I've been busy cleaning and decorating for Thanksgiving and Christmas and shopping for presents. 
I love trees and especially Christmas trees.  I have a lot!  I'll have to get some pictures taken so you can see some of them.  I don't have all of them out yet and I still need to get the decorations up outside.  It's raining today which is great!  We need it! 
I need to get my tree skirt finished.  I started it last year but ran out of time and didn't finish it so I need to get it done before I start back on my big Christmas quilt.  I haven't been able to work on my grandson's quilt.  My hands have gotten so dry with all the cleaning and dry air and one of my fingers cracked open (it sounds gross but it just looks like a deep paper cut) so I need to get it healed before I can hand quilt again. 
I just finished reading The Summer Kitchen by Lisa Wingate.  It was a good read.  I'm reading Foul Play by Tori Carrington now and listening to The Loop.  I forgot the author's name but it's good so far.  I'm not reading as much now and I'm listening to Christmas music instead of books. 
I also got myself a Nintendo DS and I've been playing that a little too.  I like Mario Party, the Princess and the Frog and Band Hero.  I'm disappointed that Taylor Swift isn't on the DS version but it's still got some good songs.
Time to get to bed.  Tomorrow's going to be another busy day!
