Another late night at work. [Imagine the sound of a heavy sigh here.] Really, it's not that bad--I can handle the overtime for short periods and the end is in sight: Two more days of work and the weekend will be here! Thanks for all your sympathetic comments--they are much appreciated!
I think I caught a quick glimpse of my side bar telling me that Christmas is only 34 days away. Where does the time go? I just mentioned something to Beth this morning about the fog we get in the Central Valley around December. To me, the fog is always a sign of Christmas, and when I went outside a little bit later, I noticed we had some for the first time this year. Yes, Christmas is coming, ladies! And tonight, I saw that one of the houses behind us had put up white icicle lights! Oooooooh, aaaaaaaah!
On my way home from work, I stopped and picked up Chinese fast food, so I was able to hit the Sweat Shop by 9 p.m. and make five more tree blocks before the news was over and it was time to shut down for the night. One more block and I'll have enough for the main quilt; five more blocks after that and I'll have enough for the wallhanging; another three blocks and I'll have . . . well, three more blocks! I'm not sure what I'll use them for, but whatever it is is sure to be cheerful and Christmassy! And, as a couple of you mentioned, working with this happy fabric sure helps to perk me up again after a long work day! What's your favorite way to de-stress? With Christmas coming, I'm sure any ideas that work for you would be put to good use by the rest of us, so please share!
