Fabulous Friday

For today:
Looking Out My Window: Roxy, the Foxy spent the day in our yard sleeping, grooming and enjoying the peace and quiet under our willow tree.

My Weekend Plans Include: Getting a handle on Christmas.

I’m Reading: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larson

Movie Marquee: I know we should be watching Christmas movies like everyone else. I'll see what I can find.  I do like the Christmas Story about Ralphie and his hopes to get a Red Rider BB gun for Christmas.

Something Quiltie:  I was wondering if we would be busy at the store today.  December is typically a little slower because quilter should be home finishing Christmas gifts.  The classic question of the day was "I'm hoping you still have more of this?!"  Six different requests today.  I was able to come to the aid of 5 worried people.  Even got a phone request from the Denver area.  She was looking for black flannel.  I learned no one in the whole Denver area had black flannel.  We sent her 2 1/2 yards today.  It feels good to help out.  Also had 5 husbands with lists.  Good job!

One of My Favorite Things:I love our Christmas tree ornament collection.  Over the years we've collected a wide and strange assortment of decorations for the tree. It reflexes our travels and activities.  This year I'm adding:
The black thing is a swizzle stick from the top of the John Hancock building in Chicago.  
It went with the Chocolate Martini I had.

I’m Thinking About: I've got to get some Christmas sparkle going around here.

What’s For Dinner: Cashew Chicken

A Favorite Photo:
 Me and my sister, Jane.
I guess I got the buggy and wanted a real baby to push.
 Jane might say I've been pushing her around ever since!
Until Next Time-
