Cyber Monday and Post Thanksgiving

Well early this morning I wrote a wonderful post and something happened and it disappeared into I will try to recreate it.  It went something like this:

Today I plan to work on the kits for my student's gifts for out annual Christmas Gathering.  I had it narrowed down to two ideas and chose one for this year and will save the other for next year.  I did get them done by the way,so I will post a picture after the party.  Here are a couple of pictures of previous years.

These projects are all hooked into wool---fun and easy to make.

I am getting ready to leave on a trip with my husband---his annual scuba diving trip.  He got certified last year and is very excited.  I don't dive but I like to snorkel, run on the beach, drink a margarita and love to read beach books---something I really look forward to doing on vacation.  I got three new books---Sugar Queen, Julia's Chocolates and Angry Housewives Eating Bonbons---hmmmm, there seems to be a reoccurring theme here---I must have had sweets on the mind when I picked them out.  Anybody read any of these books?

Fred our dog is staying home with Doug's sister who is house and Fred sitting.  He barks so much at the kennel that he comes home hoarse, so he will be a happy dog.  Thanks Kathe!

We had a nice quiet Thanksgiving dinner---enjoyed having Sarah our youngest daughter home from Manhattan, Ks.  We are looking forward to Christmas and our 40th Anniversary when both daughters will be here.

Chelsea has been busy posting on her Etsy site---her contribution to Cyber Monday was to post all day for a 24 hour period---lots of new listings so check it out---nothing like plugging your daughter's efforts.

Hope you had a great thanksgiving.



  1. Wow Anita - I really need to do some more hooking on wool - I did a pillow awhile ago and really enjoyed it! Have fun on your vacation.

  2. I read all three of these books and enjoyed them - I hope you like them too. I've been reading books on my treadmill lately and it sure does make the time go buy fast! LOL

  3. Thanks Gayle---not sure which one to start with...Hubby just got news from Delta that they upgraded us to first class with no extra fee---yeah!!!

  4. Anita,
    Have a great trip and have a margarita for me!
