Here I sit with other things to do

I just can't seem to break the habit of sitting here at the computer every morning. I check my embroidery sites, read emails (from 4 sources), check Facebook, and then read blogs. Then sometimes I am inspired to write on the weekend - like today.

Tomorrow is the last craft show of the year. My embroidery machine is still in the shop - not unexpected. So that means I can do sewing projects to add to the merchandise, but that's it. So I am working on little lovies (you know, the things with different ribbons sticking out) that are in the shape of a cat. I had a program for embroidering one, but well...

Yesterday Lady Bug came to help. I had her cutting those blasted ribbons. That takes time. So she cut while I sewed. We completed 3 1/2 in an hour and a half. Not too shabby.

I want to go to one of the school's FFA craft show today. I think Daughter will go with me, and if not, I may not go. I really do not need to spend any more money this month!

I have been reading all you wonderful people who have decorated for Christmas. It makes me a little sad. All my stuff is still put away. I want to put up the tree this year, but I am worried about that cat who should be dipped in gold when he passes. I am afraid, and for good reason, the little critter will try to eat the thing. I surely don't need to pay for another exploratory surgery!

So I have wasted enough time. Simone is sitting here coughing because she has a bad case of reflux, so I am going to get her an antacid pill and sew more lovies!

Peace be with you.

I have not decorated yet for Christmas. We have 3 cats and as long as we do there won't be a live tree inside. I have a wall tree. It hugs the wall and is hung on the wall complete with lights and ornaments that I add as I wish. It's high enough that the cats cannot reach it. I do not want to wake up one morning and behold the sight of a fully decorated tree lying over on its side with smashed ornaments.
This gives me an excuse also to not have to decorate such a tree, or un-decorate it either. I win.

We, too, had cat issues with our tree. So, now we hang it from our ceiling. No more broken ornaments or eaten limbs. We actually hang ours upside down. I know it's not for everyone, but it's just a suggestion!
