It had gotten up to 40 degrees and the porch had no snow whatsoever yesterday.
The above videos from this morning show you why Dagan and Leah won't be here tonight. Leah might stop by with milk sometime soon--not sure which night--but we won't be getting together till next week.
Yesterday I decided I had been out of my bookcards for just way too long. So I picked out covers and the inside pages (all pre-cut)--and started punching holes using the cradle.
Picked out colors of embroidery thread...
...and sewed them together while I watched TV.
Made seven and six of them are already earmarked to be used right away. :)
I also decided upon the pen and ink I want to use for the personalized cards--Noodler's Ink and my Lamy calligraphy pen.
I made up some samples of my half-printed style of handwriting (bottom) and numbered the rubber stamp sentiments. All ready to go with Leah whenever she comes by with milk--tada!
I'm using the Noodler's Polar Black. Don't they have the coolest bottle labels? Love the polar bear!
So once this is dry it isn't supposed to bleed if it gets wet. And I bet I could write outside when it was twenty below zero--or colder--if I ever really needed to. ;)
The Christmas programs have arrived! CMA's Country Christmas was on with all the classic carols. Christmas in Rockefeller Center (tree lighting and singing) is on tonight...and Rudolph...and the Grinch...along with the new Shrek The Halls. I only watch a few of those--but I wait for It's A Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story every year. Wouldn't seem like Christmas without watching (or at least half-watching) them. :)
I still remember watching the Andy Williams Christmas show every year when I was young...and the Bing Crosby Christmas specials. Getting old! Do you have any favorite movies or programs you watch every year? Does anybody read The Night Before Christmas to little ones anymore? Just curious.
I guess I've been chatty lately and blogging every day again. I guess it all depends if I have something to share. :):)
