Christmas Ornaments, the race begins!!!!11:57 AM
Every year around this time I get into the race, the ornament making race that is. Last year unfortunately I messed around and drug my feet and ended up not making anything, even after the wonderful Barb went out of her way to mail out some great christmas ornament directions she was using for herself. I still remember the amount of envelopes she had to send out LOL
So this morning I decided it's now or never, I dug out the fabric I wanted to use, I got out the directions and started cutting. I'm making the Be Warm Snow Man Pillow Ornaments.
But switching gears now, I have to tell you I must have the kid with the weakest immune system on earth, literally all you have to do is look at Jasmine and whisper the word "cold" and she's done.
Yesterday afternoon the kids went outside to play, everything was fine, but within 30 minutes there were clouds in the sky and the wind seemed to have picked up. Now I'm not talking COLD blasting wind, I'm talking a little breeze that felt wonderful, people......well apparently that was enough for Jasmine. She woke up this morning with the sniffles and now she's got a full blown cold, coughing and fever and congested.
It's going to be ONE of those nights!!! So she's in bed, asleep, waking up every few minutes to cough or moan or ask for some water. She's determined to beat this cold real fast because Sunday they have a birthday party to go to, obviously if she's not any better they'll be staying home, I just can't afford to let her miss another school day.
Just seems that everywhere I turn there is someone sick, it's that time of the year for sure.
And that's it for me, you will I'm sure notice that I started this post just before noon my time and it's now 10:30pm when I'm finally ending it.
Life just does that to you, between crafts, sick kids, house chores, cooking and cleaning and taking out dogs and all that other fun stuff, I completely ran out of time for blogging. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
Have a wonderful friday night, I'm off to climb into my warm comfy bed, prop myself up on the pillows and watch Most Haunted and then fall asleep while I dream of a white christmas, too bad I'm in Arizona and the only white I see is the Salt Factory just across the road LOL
