Mail x 2

My PT session was not too bad yesterday. One of the exercises I was unable to do last week I did this week. as well as a few new added steps. Today is injection day. I am not looking forward to this at all. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday----torture days. Before you ask, I only feel slightly better. But, I am giving this the "old Girl Scout try"; that is to say, I will do this in hopes of not needing surgery. The reality is that this does not repair the tear or spur . Now before you ask, yes, I was a Girl Scout!
Yesterday's mail brought me....
My Christmas Ornament Exchange from Angela in Singapore..... isn't it cute. Bells and a snowflake charm. It will look so nice on my tree. Along with the exchange, Angela sent me a RAK. We both belong to the group, and this is what she sent....



lovely fabric, pretty trim and buttons and charms....It is a pleasure visiting your blog, Pretty Little Things in a Box. Angela is very talented. Stop by and see for yourself.
I must get to the Post Office to get a couple of packages out this week. I am going to try to get a few of my going back East packages out early too. They just need to be gift wrapped. My friends Lu and Stan already have been decorating. The temps there today will be around 43...cold! I do not miss that at all, at all! We are still in the 70's and I love it. The other day while Mr H and I were in the yard, this fella came to visit

 He is a Costa's Hummingbird. Just look at the vibrant purple... and he is sitting in the shade! What a sweet little guy. He is not afraid to hover close to us or sit and let us approach. This is a tree on the opposite side of the yard where our resident hummer sits. Each of these 2 trees has a feeder to keep everyone happy. I have a couple of hours before the needle..... so I think I will settle down with my cup of coffee and think about the finishes I will do later. Thank you for visiting with me and your kind words. Hope your day is grand.

Finish work today

I over slept today, here it is 4:30 am and I am just getting out of bed. Coffee is brewing, my body is tired but my mind is asking what project next? First on the agenda is a visit to the torture room with Alicia for PT at 8 am. Then it will be home for much need ice and then it will begin. I have 2 ornaments ready to be finished. Both to be mailed tomorrow. Then and only then will I gather up the next 2 projects. Oh yes, I know which they are. One has been kitted for awhile just waiting and the other I just received as a gift. You will have to wait to see which they are. I can show you Santa....
he is off being framed at Jo Ann's and should be ready by December 3rd. A simple frame for him as he is old world and not fancy. I know some people do not like to do outlining, but it does bring everything out... it pops the design. You can see the difference in this 2 pictures.....
Now the bells jingle and the holly and berries pop. It really  makes a difference doesn't it. I look forward to having him displayed in time for Christmas. I have signed up for a Christmas Card Exchange.... I love sending Christmas cards. This will be a simple card no gift exchange. At this time of year it is nice to do something so simple as this. I send electronic ones also, not as nice maybe of having one in hand, but they are animated and musical. I smell my coffee so off I must go. Glad you visited today and thank you for the kind words and your friendship. Have a wonderful day.
