Getting to be a grandmother is starting to be a full time job for you.   :ohmy:

Did himself get one or two tags this year?

He went hunting on Wednesday.  It was just me and Lira until bout 7 last night.  I futzed around not really getting anything done.  But, that ok, sometimes ya just need time to look very very deep.
Got slapped with some nasty weather Saturday. We lucked out with the slush snow with 3" of the gunk.I shoveled many times to stay ahead of it.  It was decieving to say the least.Looked like just snow on the top but actually it was water.   When it stopped I salted the daylights out of everything lol.  The winds started and The temps dropped for a big freeze.  And it did.
Woke up yesterday with a burrrr, half the car was frozen shut. Took a while to warm it up lol. Then I parked it in the sun after I was able to open the drivers side lol. Came in got my 4 way chili ready for a fun afternoon of making diaper cakes and wreaths for my nieces baby shower.  Ohh that was fun, armed with baby trinkets, and useable thing like bibs and socks and little things like that, over 400 newborn diapers had to be rolled up and done.  Took about 3.5 hours to do.  I have one project to do here, which is letter the boys name on a wooden whale.   Must find a couple of chalk pencil things.
Now it's Monday, Thursday is Thanksgiving.    Will be different that for sure...

Roll that over, equally true. My granddaughter at nine astonishes me with her World of Warcraft killer skills. She'll probably grow up to run a Fortune 500 outfit.

You'll be in their world too, as they evolve-along...  They'll look back and hope they didn't annoy you by being whiny or restless.  I think that about my 'great'-relatives when I remember back.

This is true lol.   Right now, the oldest greatness, every time I see him, its Granny where we going lol.  I only knew 1 of my greats.  She took me everywhere and did things, even when she was in her 90s we could go in and just be. Good memories.

Suns out grass is green and its sweatshirt weather.  Crazy temps.  I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. Ha! Are you ready for Christmas?   Yea me neither.
As of late, I have been taken up by teaching myself how to make butter.  You see, one day I got bored and had some cream that would just go to rot, so I thought, why not.  Not bad, couple more tries and I might have it down.   I've been decorating coffee cups to.  Me, my oil pen, and the oven.  Learning new knitting stitches and doing a bunch of pressure canning to.   
For my next feat, I have decided to do my own dog grooming.  That's taken some time to research, I'm ready.  So this week, while himself is at work, it'll be me, Lira, the coffee table, thinning shears and the electric razor.  I can't do it today, nope, football Sunday, I just can't take the coffee table away lmao.   
The decision is made to incorporate a trainer at the gym.  For now just on Tuesdays and Thursdays,  that way the rest of the days can be for practice.  Time to switch it up!
I didn't realize its been a few since I had been around, guess I'll have to get off of Pinterest......its my new shut the world out obsession....
Off to read and see what I have missed!

Well the sky's were grey and it rained lol.  I was on a mission to finish the wee bits left out there amount the happy shoppers.  I took every less used road I could as they are in zombie mode soley focused on gettin it done.  I lucked out, knowing the high school kids were either still sleeping or gathering their crew.  I was glad I had no reason to go inside the mall.   The mall is scared this week,,,,,it gets infested with mall rats.  I don't like mall rats.   They are like zombie drivers.  They don't see you, don't look for you and try to bounce around you in cut off speed to get there.
I went into one store and things were going very well.  Skids full of product blocking the aisles, workers slamming these hot items....don't ask, I don't know.... I was calmly trying to get to housewares without getting run over.  An excuse me here , a Bless your heart Merry Christmas there. Quick swerve to avoid collision of the carts. Then the screeching crying of the small ones started.  Oh mylanta,  when the count of 3 different highly disgruntled little ones chimed I knew my time was up.   Off to Gander Mountain,,,,,it was quiet there, almost calming.    I like Gander Mountain.
When I knew I had one stop left......Walmart, I took matters into my own hands, I would survive this......so I scruffed up hair a smidge grabbed a cart and started talking to myself out loud. Repeating the mantra,,,,ribbons, candle, yarn over and over.  I thought it particularly nice people would move a bit to the left or right.  Must have been the highly calculated circular motion while pointing to signs, yes, it helped.
All good til I got to yarn.   I ran my fingers thru my hair and settled in to find a medium size yarn, color kind of like a good fall color.  A woman came up and couldn't find sewing thread. I smiled and helped her find the large white thread.  I mentioned to make sure she got the right kind.  Big discussion on what the difference would be between, so I just explained she might want regular for sewing cotton or uphlolstery for sewing heavy or canvas.  She thought and decided she would take the white all purpose as she was going to do eyebrows.
I backed away, wished her well, came home and haven't left.
How was your day?

I went in for fresh vegetables and two Rx's.  So it was not a bad day for me.  This is the time of year I go look at men things (tools) as most woman are not around much.   :lol:  I know, I have everything I need.   But it's nice looking at the new things out.  Who knows I my find something I could have used 10 years ago.   :biggrin:

Big-box retail stores aren't nearly as crowded as last year. Our local noose-paper said it's due to increased on-line buying.

I have a hard anti trust thing with on line.     I think I'll just start shopping in April. No fuss no muss no drama.

I do not buy on line, I will go without first.  I find shopping year around works for us.
