13 Days And Counting

It's getting closer to Christmas - I am anticipating it for the first time in quite a while. I went shopping yesterday to purchase indoor decorations for my home and it's probably been more than 15 years since I did that.

Wayne called from the Bahamas. He's been on his liveaboard scuba diving trip and loving every minute of it. During one call in the middle of the week, he sounded very very tired. He said he's dived with sharks, mantas and even saw an octopus. I'll be glad to see him when he arrives safe and sound this evening.

It's early in the morning, the heater has been acting up, and I turned the oven on to add a bit of heat to the kitchen. I figured I might as well add a batch of cookies to it, and put it to good use.

I'm also in the midst of two loads of laundry - one in the washer and one in the dryer. I'd like to duck out to Kohls sometime today and look for a couple of cute pillow to dress up the living room.

Off to tackle a couple of other projects - but before I go, I'll share a photo of grandson Justin with Santa Claus.


  1. They always cry with Santa!!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, Yarnjeannie!

  2. Sounds like you had a good day! Love the pic. Blaze cried in his last

  3. What a cutie! That reminds me...I need to bake a batch of cookies too. Did you make it to KOHLS?

  4. Gingerbread cookies are done, as well as peanut butter cookies. I might make sugar cookies tonight.

  5. I'm kind of strange - I LOVE pictures of kids crying on Santa's lap. For some reason they always make me smile. We only have one Santa picture of our girls where there isn't a tear. In my mind, the picture is a howling success!

  6. Hi Jeannie!! It's been so long, but the worst is over (I sure HOPE!).. and it just feels so good to be visiting and catching up with everybody I've missed! Love seeing the picture of little Justin with Santa!! He'll understand what what the big guy in the red suit is all about soon enough!!! (0; Hope this finds you and yours well, and enjoying the season! I have got some baking to do today, so I had better get started on it! Looking forward to visiting with you again soon! ((Hugs)) ~tina
