I noticed that the pond at the back side of my office building was partially frozen this morning (it was only last week that they turned off the fountain!). I should have worn warmer pants than jeans though. Man they are cold against your skin! Christmas knitting needs to be finished so that I can focus on knitting a pair of fingerless mitts to keep in my office. My "space" at work is very cold - probably because I have a window next to my desk. I think it is just really hard to regulate temperatures in office buildings. We have spots in our office that are like saunas.
The good news is that a tree was secured from a farmer's market yesterday. It was on the patio when I got home last night. YAY!! Hopefully Fletch will bring it in today so it can "settle" a bit...lights on tomorrow and decorating it Sunday. That's my plan anyway.
Tonight I think we are going to order Chinese for dinner and then I can knit (after I pay bills - yuck). I plan/hope/better wrap gifts to ship on Saturday. I've been afraid to take Emmy's skirt off the blocking mat in case it curls up, but I'm going to have to do that.
I'm feeling hopeful that I'm ahead of the game (or at least on time) with getting holiday stuff done. Of course I have yet to figure out when I am going to bake. This year I will pare that down quite a bit. I always make a ton of cookies and end up throwing a lot away come January. I think, instead, I will try to spread the cookie love out throughout the year.
