So I was beginning to think that I was all crafted out. That maybe I had gotten to the end of the crafting inspiration that had been allotted for the year or something cause I had not desired to touch my sewing machine here for the last month or two. Since I don't knit or crochet, there was nothing else that I was doing.... at all. Maybe it was still getting over the stress of Savannah's appointments (which by the way if you didn't know, she was given a clean bill of health till January at least) or maybe it was the looming idea of the holidays and having done absolutely nothing for it. See, I love to craft the gifts for the holidays cause then I don't have to fight the mobs at the mall for the things I desire to give. Although the gifts aren't always as neatly sewn as if I had bought them, I like to think that it is a little more special than a store bought gift... and I didn't have to worry about terrorists...... (can you believe that they now think that they want to blow up the malls at Christmastime? But that is for another rant on another blog.)
All this to say,the holidays were looking pretty gloomy down here... or up here... or over here...Guess it depends on where you are reading this from. Then this happened:
They played CHRISTMAS Music on the radio today!
Usually it annoys the daylights out of me that it starts the day after Thanksgiving and goes non-stop for a month. It wouldn't be so bad if it were just a little cooler (Monday is supposed to be 80 degrees). I find that it is impossible to feel like Christmas shopping/crafting in November when it is so hot out, period. This year though it helped me to get a little more in the Christmas spirit and actually start working on the Christmas projects more.
So, I expect that I will start to get more done around here. It feels mighty nice too. It's funny but not feeling like doing anything actually makes me feel worse than just doing stuff. Unfortunately, there is too much stuff to do amongst all the fun crafty stuff.... like the pile of dirty dishes in the sink.
