How Many?

One of the things I like to do during the Christmas season is sit with only the Christmas lights glowing, with a cup of cappuccino and a good book.  It’s a time of quiet, solitude and peace.  As you know those things; quiet, solitude and peace, can be quite rare these days.

I’m happy to report I’m finally done with Christmas shopping.  I have a few gifts left to wrap and a few to mail out.  But otherwise finished.  

As far as quilting and crafting go, a wall hanging and fabric ornaments are all that’s left to do and I hope to finish them this weekend.  The wall hanging, I feel confident will be finished today. The ornaments may not be finished until tomorrow afternoon.

On the radio the other day,  there was a discussion of how many Christmas movies are watched during the season.  One of the DJs admitted to watching 17 movies since Thanksgiving.   Now, I admit I like to watch Christmas movies, but I don’t see how I could get in 17 movies.  I think I’ve watched maybe 5 at the most.  Of course there are still 11 days until Christmas, so I’m sure I’ll get in a few more.  🙂

How about you?  Have you watched any Christmas movies and if so how many?

And to those who watch Christmas movies, what is about them that keeps you going back to watch them every year?

It doesn’t matter if they are corny or if we know the plot and how it’s going to end, we continue to watch.  I know for me, it is the feeling of nostalgia and good memories when I watch movies like ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ and ‘The Christmas Carol’.   It takes me back to my childhood when I watch ‘Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer’.  I think my favorite childhood Christmas show though, is ‘The Little Drummer Boy’.

Well, I better sign off and get to work in my sewing room.  Here’s wishing you a super Saturday!

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
