Not only does the kitten climb the Christmas tree but he sleeps in it. Evidently, he has spent a considerable chunk of time in it because he has a sticky, tree sappy spot on his flank.

Just got a text message that made me grin from ear to ear. I made a dress for someone based solely on measurements, she got it today, and she LOVES it. I am thrilled. Hopefully, I will have pictures to show you of it soon.

I’m adjusting to Vic being back on night shifts. It’s not horrible anymore but it’s not wonderful. On the plus side (and this is a HUGE plus), since he has been out of the office and back in front of a 911 console, his blood sugar levels have been much better.

*******************************

It’s going to be a weird Christmas, schedule -wise. Vic will be working those nights but we will be able to open presents together Christmas morning.

Remember that quilt I was talking to y’all about? It is about 90% assembled and I will hopefully have the machine quilting done by the weekend and next week I can start the hand quilted motifs (a leaf, a squirrel, a turkey, an acorn, a pumpkin, and either a corn on the cob or an apple).

Go over to Wistfulgirl’s World and sign up for the ornament exchange. I’m making some absolutely FAB ornaments for the person I get matched with.

Anyone want to go climb up on my roof with me so I can have help putting up the Christmas lights and fixing the spot around the fan vent that is letting in water? I can do it but I get very nervous on the part of the roof with the steep slope.

What are you baking for Christmas this year?  I make Spritz, sugar cookies, rum balls, and fattigman (a Swedish version of gingerbread).  I also make coffee cake.  I’m debating adding a new, fun cookie to the mix but I just can’t decide.  And, no, all the baking isn’t just for us.  When I was little, my mom use to bake up a storm and take plates around to friends.  I do that now and I try to always have a plate of goodies to take to our local fire station for the guys that are stuck on duty Christmas Eve.

    If I can get our oven fixed, then I am making shortbread, candycane cookies, russian teacakes, chocolate ball thingys, and maybe snickerdoodles. Ahem. Ideally…

    I’ll pass on getting up on the roof, but I’ll cheer you on from the safety of the ground. 🙂

    I bake cookies, too. Don’t know if I’ll get around to doing any this year. Haven’t decided yet.

    Glad the recipient loved the dress!

    I think this is an instance where a fear of heights is justified. Or just a fear of rolling off the roof.

    I haven’t started baking yet because if I did my family would eat it all by next week. I plan on making chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter sugar cookies, oatmeal cranberry cookies, russian teacakes and I really want to make a creme de menthe pie this year. We’ll see how it REALLY goes…

    I used to do the Christmas lights on the roof line but never actually got my hiney all the way on the roof. That was always a bit more intimidating.
    I usually do a lot of baking and candy making for Christmas but I’m thinking I may be skipping it this year as I seriously don’t need to eat any of it.

    That kitty should enjoy it, ’cause he may be too big next year to sleep in the tree. 🙂
