Okay, that was joke. I'm far from too busy to craft and read, but my old friend, Procrastination, has moved back in and I don't see him leaving anytime soon. So I'll just have to make the best of it and try to keep Procrast locked up somewhere. He's sneaky though. He can talked me into letting him have full run of the place so easily. I guess I'm just a soft touch.
Playing around on Facebook today, I saw a post for this cookbook. Have any of you seen this? Fifty Shades of Chicken
It is a real cookbook but is written from the chicken's point of view. So, so funny. It has gone on my wish list. I so want to read, um, try the recipes.
Christmas decorating is getting a slow start at The Front Porch. I can't get the Hubs motivated to bring up the decoration or get the tree set up. I really and truly want a new tree this year. I have even considered getting a live tree just for the nostalgia. I have always loved the smell of a live tree but the hassel of keeping them watered and then the mess from the needles. And since it's only the Hubs and me and we probably won't be having any little kiddies around, it does seem like a lot to do. We will be visiting the grands instead of them coming here and my sister is hosting the Christmas gathering, so does it seem silly to want a real, live tree?
I have a lot of snowmen I need to get out and put on my table. I want to find a tablecloth my Mom made me several years ago. She crocheted one for both my sister and I. I don't use it since it is for a rectangle table and I have a round one now, but I'm thinking it would be pretty on the antique drop leaf table with all the snowmen arranged on top. Maybe a red or green cloth underneath. Hmmmm, have to work on that.
It is a bright sunny day here with a temp of 63 F. Much better than the first of the week with such gray cloudy skies and all the rain. My joints did not enjoy that at all. I much prefer the sun even when the temps are cold. I don't like cold weather but having some pretty blue skies takes the edge off.
This was the way the skies looked on Monday.
And this is how they look today.
So much better, don't you think?
Even Bandit didn't enjoy they gray skies. He came in to sleep in the office.
So that's it for today. Hopefully, next time I will at least have so Christmasy photos so show you. I'll leave you with this quote:
“Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.”

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day wherever you might be.
