Thoughts Turn to the Holidays

Homemade usually requires a glue gun

With the first snow thoughts turn to the holidays. I pull out my Christmas list and look it over and figure out where I stand.   I try to make as many of my gifts as possible, and that requires I start early.   As the holiday pulls closer, I have to re-evaluate my plans of homemade gifts.  I was pulled outside by the short warm season with the long days that are now a distant memory.   I am realizing the price I must pay.  Sometimes I throw up my hands and head to the local stores, when I realize  the best laid plans have gone awry.  Christmas gifts are not started and there is no hope of getting them done in time for this year’s holiday.   Disappointment.

I have two gifts  I started in the spring and they have got pushed aside by time and nice weather.   Now, November is here and I better get crack’in and work on getting those two gifts tied up.   One I feel pretty good about and the other still has a way to go.   Oh well that is what November and December are for, getting ready for the holidays.
