Almost time for the tree....

When do you put up your Christmas tree? How about the outdoor decorations? I generally get things going by the first of December. Why put so much into the decorating for only a few days or so...besides I like to enjoy each and every ornament; some I have had since we got married. A few belonged to my aunt Angie and of course there are the new ones and gifted ones. Today I think I will start the out front lights. Once Mr H has his surgery Monday, he will not be helping and the outside lights are the place he helps with the extensions and such. Inside requires a little rearranging of things for the trees and I hope to do it over the few days he is in hospital. He tends to get a bit too helpful and is under foot. Yesterday I spent some time with my sweet friend Jeanne....and we made...
these simple to sew ornaments. I cut out several circles for her so she can make several.I really enjoy these origami type crafts. The back is ...
plain but pretty too. I have not pressed this one yet. I can't wait to see Jeanne's. I have a few packages to send out. Think I will go on Tuesday morning...the first of the month especially December is so busy there.The temps are a bit cool but enjoyable never the less, and the sun is still hot enough to give a burn. Have you noticed that some of my posts are later and not so early morning...well, I think I am getting old cause getting up and doing in the morning is not as it was. Oh, I am still awake most mornings by 3 AM but not in the mood to do anything butt curl up on the daybed in the sewing room. Ever since retiring...hmm, wonder if that has something to do with it! My get up has gotten up and went. Glad to chat with you today. Thank you for your friendship and kind words. Have a great day.

Enter at your own risk~~~~~

I feel as if I am in running in circles lately. Notes and more notes to myself and to Mr H....trying to remember too many things. It seemed that we had so much time for this upcoming surgery for Mr H now it is literally around the corner and moving in fast. Today will be the last day of things to do as the day is Monday. This afternoon we need to pre -register Mr H at the hospital. This morning a technician from Cox came to visit. I have had issues with connection for some time on and off. We visited the Cox store the other day back from some appointment and they offered to replace my modem free. I guess today was the morning! Here and gone already but then something clicked in my lost mind...the December card exchange! Can you believe we have come full circle from the the start of this ? So, if you want to be included in the last round, please let me know. And do not feel bad if you can not...I do know how busy everyone is this time of year. What must you think of me....this is the first time I did not mail out any cards!!!! I have mailed a card to everyone each month...just forgot with all this hullabaloo happening at Horton House. But I will mail out for December. Please let me know by December 5th. Are you all ready for Thanksgiving? We are, well I think we are and if not we will make do. For us it will be simple turkey and the fixings; a quiet day. Right now, I must check on the wash that I put in and due to my slipping mind have actually have wash twice already, neverthemind, it will be done by now and a much needed cup of coffee will be in hand. Glad you came by today....thank you as always for your friendship and kind words. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you form me and Dennis.

Oh my lucky stars!

Don't know how lucky they are, but they certainly were addicting...
Mr H and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend and sat outside while I folded all these stars. I think they would make great mobiles or banners or just to hang on the tree or anywhere for that matter.
I like how the message comes through on this one....the paper choices are really endless. I have always like origami but never really tried to make anything. Then I did a few and can see how it can be addicting. I must remember to not to do too many at a time because I really had to medicate my hand. I did make a little more progress on SW Santa
He will make a nice addition to my Southwest ornaments. Lots of beading and you know how much I love my beads. We are getting ready for the big day...next Monday will be Mr H's surgery. We have been busy making all the necessary preparations and appointments. Tomorrow and Wednesday are final prep days. It will be hard for my guy to not do the things he does. Silly as it may sound, he will not be happy with me in charge of the garden and the feeding the fish. He says I scare the fish...really. They are lucky I feed them when he has been sick! As for the garden, I am sure he will attempt to be out there. I will have my work cut out for me. I think I better get another bottle of my favorite drink... anyway, so glad you popped in to visit. Welcome to a few new friends and thank you ever so much for your friendship and kind words. Have a great day.
