It's in the air...

the Christmas season. Aside from the overload of flyers in the papers and busy shopping malls one of the best parts of the season are the displays of lights. Neighbours across the street have a beautiful tree in their front window. In our complex, it's December 1st that the lights go on! Some of our neighbours are in full swing of decorating. As for the Burkes, we're working on it.

It's a very soggy saturday morning and for six something still very dark. A blurry eyed Quincy has just stopped by the computer chair for a good morning head rub. It is a dog's life!

And now it's blurry eyed DH stopping for a moment and heading back for more Z's. So this weekend is off and running, well sort of.

I really enjoy making cards. I've been working on small cross stitch pieces to attach to Christmas cards. So it's time to put it altogether, including some embossing. Pictures to follow.

and so I begin

Thanksgiving 2009
It's been a wonderful long weekend on the west coast. It is truly fall, quite cool, trees in the most beautiful colors and sunshine throughout most of the weekend. Today we spent a wonderful afternoon with my family and enjoyed in a Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone went home with 'leftovers'. Of course the canine members were not left out, Quincy and Shana both had their treats sent home to them.

I'm on the home stretch of a beaded tree ornament for Noah. It was easy to make the typo from Noel to Noah. There seems to be more time to stitch these evenings.
