Santa must need new glasses since he found my name on the "Nice" list. I thought the new camera, Ott Light and then the new xs stash was enough but Tracy didn't agree. My own special Santa just had to continue to spoil me with feel good things under the tree. As you know, I complain enough about it, that I have problems with my lower back. To help with this problem I found a Massage Cushion for my stitching/computer chair and boy does it help. I also have problems with my feet as a result from the diabetes so he got me a Home Spa. Like the massager it works wonders and I wish I had gotten one years ago. As if that wasn't enough he also got me some new clothes since I really didn't have anything that fit with my recent weight loss. I'm not sure what I did to deserve all this but I will be doubly nice to my Special Santa this year for sure.
To celebrate Christmas this year we continue with our new tradition of going out on Christmas Day. We started at the Christmas display at the Belliago. I couldn't believe how packed it was with tourist. I wanted to get some pictures to share with you but I forgot to check the battery in the camera and it was dead as a door nail so pictures will have to wait until we can get back there this week when the crowds should be smaller. We then headed downtown to Fremont St where the crowds were much smaller and it was easier to get around. We had a very YUMMMY dinner at our favorite buffet, we both ate too much but really enjoyed not having to cook or clean up. We then decided to put a few pennies in the slots and Santa was still with us since we both won enough to pay for our evening and come home with more than we left with. As always we ended our evening at Starbucks for a Cappichino and some people watching. While we really miss being with family at this time of year the day did make it a little easier. We are planning a very quiet New Years at home. The crowds here are just to crazy to be out in so will stay in and watch the festivies on TV.
I did start on my new project on Christmas eve and here is what I have gotten done so far....
This is about 1/4 of page 1. There are 6 pages to the chart so I hope to get at least 1 page done each month and should be finished by June or July, in plenty of time to have it framed on on the wall by next Christmas. I am doing this in Tracy's favorite colors and it will have his initials on it so guess it's sort of a gift for him.
Hope everyone had as wonderful Christmas as we did and look forward to a very Happy New Year with lots of stitching finishes.
Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching
