Today I'm sitting at the dentist waiting for DH entertaining myself by making more bees.

Between Christmas shopping and Pinterest, I finished an order last week. A peacock feather purse.
The Christmas decorating has been slow going around here. I just can't get motivated to bring out all of the boxes of ornaments and lights and put up the big tree so I bought a live table top tree. I started decorating last night but got sleepy and went to bed. My little tree so far.
The kids stopped by Saturday evening. Megan had made cupcakes for a family function and I took one to share with DH because I had planned on making a cake on Sunday. Well, after I cut off a little bite for myself, it was soooooo good poor DH didn't even get to sample it. It's usually the other way around, but I must have had a sweet tooth.
I went to visit mom yesterday. She seemed a little down so I told her we would go for a drive one night this week while there is still snow on the ground to see the homes decorated along the lake. I think I'll take her to dinner first. Perhaps on her birthday tomorrow. I think she is just lonely since her friend passed away this year and her best friend had moved out of state a few years ago. She doesn't get out to make new friends so she's stuck with me and I keep busy and can't visit daily. She loves receiving mail, so I try to send a silly card from time to time. Have a sunny day!

We had snow today so I started some new crazy quilt projects. This is my creative mess at the moment.
I also finished another crazy quilt pocket watch.
Tomorrow I will pick up the turkey and I'll make pies on Wednesday. It seems Thanksgiving arrived so quickly. I haven't even thought about Christmas shopping. I sure won't be doing the Black Friday thing. The thought of crowds and in and out of the car in cold weather is a big turn off. I'd rather stay home, stitch, and drink hot tea and spiced cider. Perhaps I'll put up the tree or maybe cut the evergreens and decorate the windows outside.
I stopped at mom's and found she has a little companion. She brought in a kitten that apparently wasn't getting enough to eat. I think she just wanted or needed a little one to care for. I can relate to that. The other cats are Ferrell because people drop them off and she feeds them even though she can't touch them. They just hang around outside and when we catch one it goes straight to get fixed. Unfortunately each year a few more arrive. It seems to be a losing battle but at least it cuts down on a few litters of unwanted kittens.
So I'm off to my bubble bath then a bit more stitching before dreamland. Have a great tomorrow.
