isn't she pretty? a card that i got from kat. she loves her perch on my bookshelf.

it's a whirl this weekend. a day long party at work (i made potato soup and black bean salsa.) the soup was great but i stayed up past midnight getting it done as i had a late start last night.

tonight, i'm invited to two more parties, a dinner tomorrow night and maybe a visit with my favorite aunts on sunday. somewhere in there i have to buy christmas presents. luckily not much though.

what about you? you have something going on? short and sweet today - i though i had something profound, turns out i don't. sometimes it works out like that, right? be kind to each other.

  3. Some days just aren't meant to be profound, and isn't that a good thing? Makes the ones that are so much sweeter!!

    Love your card..she's beautiful!!

    Enjoy your festivities...sounds like you are going to be on the run!

    Me? I've to finish decorating a tree, finish decorating and tidying up, get some groceries and hopefully visit with a friend on Sunday...it will play out exactly as it is meant to! :)

  6. We're bracing for the big storm that's supposed to start around midnight. Apparently, it's going to keep snowing clear through Sunday morning. Whoa.

  7. A perfect pre-Christmas weekend here ... Cue the movie White Christmas, the song Snow, Snow, Snow! We've got a snowstorm predicted for tomorrow night into Sunday, so we'll be enjoying the comforts of home while the snow's blowing outside the windows :)

  8. I am being quiet...I said no to a lunch invite today and have been wrapping gifts...

    it's cold here and my feet, no matter what I do, don't want to warm up...

    I did venture into an art project in my studio late this afternoon.... maybe I'll share it tomorrow....

    otherwise, the grey is making me be in a "come on sunshine, would it kill you to shine down on us" mood....

    sorry for the whining....yeesh....I really was wasn't I ?

  11. Love the card! Potato soup...mmmmm. Have fun at your parties this weekend.

    I'm working (and blogging on the side) this morning. Once I'm off at 12, I plan to get some shopping done...I'm trying to finish. Tonight Rachel and the baby are coming over while her hubby is out on a guy night. Tomorrow night I'm going to the Christmas service at my old church.
