Christmas Shopping...:-)

Good Afternoon!

We have been having fun shopping and just walking around stores looking at decorations.

At Bass Pro Shop in Tri County they have a real nice Train Scene... we both like it. Here is Hubby looking at the Big Train Set there.

... I also like the Christmas decorations at Macy's.... I really didn't expect Bass Pro to have such nice ones!!!

Why Is Krogers....

... Almost empty? ... It has nothing to do with Cooking & Baking for Christmas... Nope... it has something to do with a big storm coming this way... " Sunday Evening"... this is just Friday...

...Just imagine what kind of stampede Krogers and other stores will have to contend with ON Sunday...

...Does it get REAL crazy around where you live when the word SNOW is whispered about?

After Black Friday Shopping

... Here is what Sissy and I did AFTER I did some Early Bird shopping...

Ahhh... SLEEP...:-)

Of all the shopping I did... And bought nothing at those Door Buster Sales... I was tired & worn out... Sissy must have been worn out too... Yet all she did was wait for me at home.

...But I did buy some USB Memory Sticks at Staples... That was my BIG BUY of the day... See if I ever get up early for Black Friday again...;-) Did anyone else have any luck at those sales?

... My Computer crashed... :-( I haven't been without my computer for 5 days now...:-( I keep thinking about everything I have on it and now I'm losing that information and pictures. The store is cleaning everything out of it. I think they called it a System Restore.

I have made 3 Hat & Scarf sets for The Binkie Patrol.. So with a computer I'm getting more crochet done...;-)

Just wanted to let you know why I haven't been on line... I hope I'll get back on soon... and I mean SOON.

...Yesterday, I started craving a Rueben... I have the stuff to make them. But I didn't want to use bread. So... I made these... Rueben Roll Ups!!!
...You just lay the Corned Beef flat... put your Swiss Cheese & Sauerkraut on it... Then your dressing. Roll it up... And put in microwave for 25 seconds... YUMMY!!!

...The first ones I made had the cheese and dressing running out of it... I had it in the microwave too long. So I cut down to 25 seconds.

Almost Done...

... I have been working on the Silver Blue Baby Afghan... It's ALMOST done. I think the skein I'm using right now will be the one to finish it. I'll get a picture of it...

...Then I can start on things for ourselves here at home. The baby afghans are for Charity.

...Has anyone eher ever used the yarn that is caled " Pound Of Love "? One of those should make 2 baby afghans. I'm just wondering if it's any good. It's always wrapped in plastic at the stores. So I can't feel it.

...I saw this and had to share it... I got a smile & groan out of it..;-)

.....It's suppose to storm & have high winds here tomorrow... So I may or may not be able to get on -line. So I'll talk to you again when I can...:-)

Went To Kohls...

...... I went to Kohl's today and EVERYTHING was Christmas... They had about 4 Christmas Trees with Decorations to Buy on them. But it isn't even Thanksgiving yet....

Then I looked at Pajamas there... On the wall they had big soft fleecy looking bed jackets on hangers... Loved them. I don't want a long robe... So it looked perfect... Then I looked below the Bed Jackets... " Matching Pajama pants to the jackets"... Those things "I" called Bed jackets were really Pajama TOPS!!! I would burn up in those things. You know THICK a Sleeping Bag is???? That is how thick these Pajamas were.

You know the lady who is always reading the labels on clothes? I'm sure you see her in the stores. Well, That's Me. I'll touch a piece of clothing to see what it is and I usually end up dropping it back fast. :-( ... It's always acrylic or polyester anymore. Ugh!!! I want Cotton... Or Silk or Bamboo or Merino Wool. Nothing man made. I wish they would bring back natural fibers.

O.K. I'll quit ranting... I guess I'm a material snob ...:-) So lets hear your say on the materials designers use.
