HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Can't believe I made an advent calender. I saw the one Shari made as a sample for the PRC group. I thought it was so cute and decided to make one too! It was fun, but so not me.
This Thanksgiving was a different. I cooked the entire dinner from scratch! It actually turned out delicious. Mia, Paul, Alex and Kay celebrated with Bob and I. The rest of the family was spread out all over the place. That's what happens when there are extended families.
Anyway, it was a nice day and enjoyed the company of who was here..

IT'S SNOWING! They are predicitng 6 to 8 inches. I really hate winter
and have fantasies of being in a warm climate .
Again, Bob and I had plans to be in Phoenix this winter, but unfortunately the economy sucks and we're afraid to spend extra money right now.
If all goes well, we might beable to go for a few weeks in January.

I'm trying to think of positive things to get me through this dull grey period. I'd like to get involved with a creative project that I've never done before. The creative process keeps my mind preoccupied and I love learning new things. All I'm doing right now is stitching a needlepoint canvas, but it's not challenging enough .
A new idea will come my way. It's perculating in my mind.

I guess my issues are nothing in comparison to what happend in India.
It's so sad and my heart goes out to anyone directly involved . My only wish for the Holiday Season is to see PEACE ON EARTH! What a gift that would be.
I don't understand why people have to be so violent.
