We got a little snow last weekend here in the big MN. We received about 16” at my house. The Baby went out today to play it today.
She is getting big and she is really cute.
I finished all the knitting for the In-laws X-mas presents. They are in the mail and should get there before Saturday. However, I do not have the rest of the gifts on my list done. I should have The Girl’s hat done (I am not worried about that), but I do not have The Hub’s present bought and I will not get anything done by Saturday. So tomorrow I will have to go shopping and see what I can find. The Girl’s Boyfriend wanted a scarf and I doubt I will be able to knit that by X-mas either. Not sure what to do about that problem. The Girl was fighting with him last week and I sort of hoped that they would breakup so I would not have to worry about it, but that did not happen. I guess that is a good thing since I do sort of like him.
I have been watching crappy holiday movies. I have always wondered why they appeal to people since they are really predictable and shallow. But I think perhaps it is because they all seem to have some stranger show up and solve the main characters problems. Who wouldn’t want someone come in and make life perfect? Look, your kids are suddenly perfect, you meet your soul mate, you get a lovely home etc and you don’t have to do ANYTHING, just believe in miracles. Really, for life to change, you have to DO something to make it change. I think that is the reason I love The Christmas Carol. Scrooge actually has to do the work himself. The Sprits show him what is happening around him, but it is up to him to decide if he is going to change.
Well, I really should be knitting on The Girl’s present instead of blogging…
