Happy Friday Folks!
Halloween has finally come and gone. We had a few trick or treater's come to the door in the CUTEST costumes ever. All small kids and just so adorable.
Next up... I know you don't want me to say but I will... Christmas! Halloween has really become the boundary that Christmas doesn't past (unless you're Costco). So here we are 2 days after Halloween and the decorations are put back in their little cubby holes for another year... and now it's the Christmas dec's turn. I'd say we have about 500% more Christmas decs than we do Halloween decs... which is not a hard thing to do considering they consist of a few pumpkins, a mummy candy stand and a witch with a broken nose (poor witch).
The next couple of weeks will see the house slowly turn into a winter wonderland with Christmas Trees and garland around every corner. Every surface in our house will be subjected to the wonder that is Christmas. AND I LOVE IT!
I don't really get all wrapped up (pardon the pun) in all the commercialism of Christmas and only buy gifts for those closest to me. No endless shopping trips for me NO WAY! Instead I choose to steep myself in the feeling that this Season brings. My boyfriend especially LOVES walking in downtown St. John's. Hot Chocolate and lazy evenings spent in downtown's cozy cafe's are calling my name. There's something about watching the hustle and bustle on the street, and seeing people wrapped up in plush coats and wooly mittens and scarf's that just makes my heart warm. I long for this feeling even now as I type up this post!
This morning I also heard my first Christmas song on the radio... I feel that it's still a little early for the x-mas tunes - it takes forever to put of our Christmas decs so that is justifiable :) See I'm not entirely crazy ;) But boy I cannot WAIT to pop in those Christmas CDs in the car's CD player!!! I'll hold off on this for another couple of weeks if my willpower holds out. I remember one year I started playing x-mas music super early and by the time the big day finally rolled around it didn't really feel like Christmas at all - I had worn out Christmas!!! I won't be doing that this year!!!!
In stitchy news (that is a bit Christmas-y admittedly), after some excellent advice from all my lovely peeps (aka: devoted followers hehe) I've decided to keep my L&L WIP on the hoops. I've actually put in about 7hr's of work in on just the bottom half of the tree already - and this is what I have to show.
'Slow going' is the best phrase to describe this project. Not much to show for so much work... BUT I SHALL persevere!
Have a great weekend everyone!!!
Ciao for now :)
