So the Christmas break continues...and I am deep in it. I really have to think about what day of the week it is and when it is that everyone goes back to school and back to work and back to reality...but that is not today. Today we are going to stay deep in vacation bliss. Amen.
We may be going up to Mt. Hood to go sledding...however, there is snow mixed with rain outside right now...so maybe we will sled down the driveway instead. I am feeling a bad case of stay-at-homeitis...I tend to be a big-time homebody and some days are worse than others. Today seems like a good day to bake and sew and nest and watch movies and make cookie platters to share with friends and of course, fold warm towels from the dryer..(just a bit of reality, but at least it is a warm reality).
Gus, our 12 1/2 year old beagle, is a stay-at-home kind of hound dog as well. However, if we do venture up to the snow covered hills, he will surely want to tag along for sure....now where did I put his snow overalls?!?

Okay...So...as noted, I am the mother of 4 folks....a son (man) who will be 25 this Friday, a really cool daughter, 23, another son (man-son) 20 and a Specialist in the U.S. Army and 5 days before my 40th...gave birth to the world's sweetest sweetie-pie, our other daughter...age 10. I know what you may be thinking...is she the oldest mom in the 5th grade?...nope! So, her class is performing, Good King Wenceslas...in a week..and I am doing the costumes. I have a crew a gals to help, but I feel great responsibility to get the "bones" of the costumes in place. I am in costume overload...the more I sew and create, the more ideas come to mind. All the while, I am torn between sewing for the school and finishing up my inventory for my new Etsy store to open soon....maybe next week. Until then, I hear a bolt of muslin and a jar of glitter calling my name...Pure Heaven for sure!
