Christmas is Coming

It is a month to Christmas. Last year at this time I was thinking about moving to Vancouver and here we are all moved to Vancouver. The time has flown by and we are pretty well settled in our new home. The only place not sorted out is our laundry storage room which is where the Christmas ornaments are...somewhere there. This weekend's project will be to sort out the storage room and find the decorations. That will be a good incentive to get the work done. Then we need to find a place for a tree. Our new place is small about 900 square feet and so Pat keeps asking where will we put a tree. That is a very good question. Hmmm something creative needed.

True Confessions

I would really love to read the Twilight series but I am afraid, very afraid, very very afraid. I read a novel in high school about vampires and it took a month before I could get the creepy fascination/fear to abate. This may even have been the novel that Tom Cruise movie was based on but I have so blocked this I cant really be sure.

I have picked the book up many times and put it down. But so many have read and raved about the book that I am sorely tempted. For you Twighlight lovers Lisa at Pumpkin Pink Cottage has a very creative blog and she has Twilight items on her cafepress store

Here is a link to her cafepress store

you can also check out her blog at as she is having a giveaway that closes on Nov 22 in honour of her 101st post.

Bonne chance
