Christmas was an extremely lazy day with my parents and sister. Actually, both me and my sister were feeling ill that day so we sat on the couch, slept and let our parents take care of us! That was so nice! But in our family, it really isn't Christmas unless one of us is sick! This year it was both of us! LOL!
I did receive some really nice gifts this year. I got a new flat screen tv that I am absolutely loving! The 5 Harry Potter movie DVDs. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian CD. A Gone With the Wind Afghan. Various gift cards. 2 new books: Dark Curse and Twilight. A new cookbook: Rachel Ray's Big Orange Book.
Twilight is ADDICTING! I started the book last night with the intention to read just the first 5 chapters. Yeah, that didn't happen. I'm more than half way through it. I couldn't put it down. I didn't get to sleep till 1 a.m.! In fact, this morning I have already gone to the book store and purchased the 2nd book. A new series to be hooked on! I have not yet seen the movie and really don't plan to. I'm always disappointed with movies after having read the book!
I have not gotten any stitching done this week! I'm hoping to sit down this afternoon and work on some projects that are feeling neglected! I'm also hoping to do some online shopping as I have a few ideas for some projects that I want to do in 2009! I hope that everyone had a lovely Christmas!

This week I think I may work on another project. I have a couple that are pretty close to being finished. I may try to finish up the baby quilt this week. Or perhaps even start a new project!
I didn't work on Poppy's beading this weekend as the lighting was terrible with it being overcast most of the time! Maybe next weekend!
Hope everyone has a great week!

Then I decided to torture the dog! LOL! Poor Duke. But doesn't he look so cute in his Santa outfit?

I was successful in getting my tree up this year already. It's just a little one (4 foot) but it took all last weekend to do because I decided it would be a good idea to rearrange my furniture in my living room so I could put it up in a new spot. Bleh!
Another week of work is done. This week literally flew by. I had such grand intentions when I went into work on Monday and while I did get some things accomplished, I didn't get the main things done! But I'll go in with good intentions once again next week!
This week's weather has been crazy down here! On Tuesday I was scraping ice off of my car's windows. Wednesday we were having a pleasant springy type of day. Thursday was rainy and temperatures dropped drastically from the time we got to work to the time that we got out. Today has been sunny but chilly. I think we are supposed to have a few days in a row that are cold. Which I don't mind, it's the cold one day, hot the next that is killing me!
I have been working on some cross stitch projects and I hope to have some progress photos soon! There's just so much with work, chores at home, Christmas shopping, friends, families, etc. It's a very busy time! I'm hoping to get some relaxing done this weekend along with stitching!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
