Well I am at home resting and crafting. I'm working on squash books and organizing things a little. My children are coming home for Christmas and to say I am excited is an understatement. My daughter is happy that I will come to Crowley for Christmas because she said my childhood home is not hers and she wants us here. So the gingerbreads will be flying out on Halloween night. I need to start early so I can get everything just right. The rest of the house will be minimal as I don't want to clutter everything up, but the dining room will be filled with snowmen and I think I will do a mixed tree in the living room with many of our Hallmark ornaments. I am only going to use my small pink tree this year---hopefully next year will be different. If I had my way, it would stay out all year, but dusting tiny ornaments is not my cup of tea and I can only stand to do it once a year when I pack them up. Soft old toothbrushes are great to use to get in the nooks and crannies.
Well we are all praying the the cap on the well doesn't crack somewhere else and now they are saying, they may have to open it up and let some of the oil out again to relieve the pressure on the cap. We can't find the shrimp we usually buy and I'm sure everyone had the same idea I had, stock up, but I was too late. Not sure I want to buy from a fisherman, even if there are no traces of oil on them--it's the methane gas that scares me. They admitted they waited too long to bring in the Whale from Thailand and had the President listened, the oil might have been cleaned up faster. At this rate, the guy this morning on the news, said it could take about 9 months to clean it up. I'll believe it when I see it for myself.
Well enough bad negativity. I'm happy today and want to stay that way. Nothing and no one can take that away from me. I'm hoping to have another giveaway soon as I said I would. Thank goodness summer has just begun. So off to gather up some pink things for altering. Have a great weekend. We have rain for the entire weekend, so maybe things will cool off. Better go water my house plants that don't get rain before they wilt and die. Love and hugs, Pat
