december 9 - vacation time!

Yes...we are officially off work for the next week, and I plan to get lots of relaxing time!

I found out earlier today that one of co-workers lost her dad this morning. He had been really sick for most of the past year, in and out of the hospital, but it is still sad. Another angel up in heaven to watch over the rest of us.

When I went to get a card for everyone to sign, I decided to go o our Friends of the Library bookstore which is only a few blocks from the library. They sell lots of handmade cards and they are just beautiful. And guess what I found while waiting in line? A copy of the Just Cross Stitch ornament issue from 1999...for .25!!! What a find for was fun looking at which designers have been included still through all these years...some of their styles have changed and others were as recognizable as if they had just designed them yesterday.

So I just found out that we are going to a Christmas party tomorrow night. I think I had better get to the hairdresser first thing in the morning...I'm long overdue!

So, goodnight for now. Thanks for taking the time to visit!
