Procrastination, Projects, & Precipitation

Can you believe that this time next week it will be Christmas?? I have so many things I want to do before it gets here! I don't know why, but it seems like I always wait til the last minute to make gifts & therefore don't end up making many. I don't know why I do that (procrastinate). I do it with things I enjoy as well as those I dread, which puzzles me.

Anyway, I hope to get several projects done this weekend! I want to make some American Girl doll clothes for W, and I'd like to make a scrapbook album for my mom (both for Christmas). I still haven't finished the little sweater I'm knitting for Andrew but I doubt that I'll be working on it any more until after the holidays.

We're supposed to get between 9 and 12 inches of snow tonight! If it does that I won't be going to work, so I brought some of my work home with me to do here. I love snow, and it'll be nice to work here at home, snuggled up under a blanket with the dogs beside me, a hot cup of tea steaming on the end table and the curtains open so I can watch it snow.

Sure, it might be more efficient to work at the table with everything within reach, but the comfort makes up for the inconvenience of working using a big book as my lap desk. I used to have one of those lap desk things that has a flat, hard surface with a pillow-like base that you put in your lap, but when Garcia was in his chewing stage he kind of destroyed it. They're very handy but I just haven't gotten around to looking for one. (Aha, see there - procrastinating again!)

Think I'll go look outside & see if the snow has started yet. We still have about 4 inches on the ground from last week, so if we get as much as predicted the snow will be way taller than the dogs!

Well hey, rent yourself a refrigerated truck & come on up, you can have as much as you'd like! Since you like snow you'd go nuts - there is an UNBELIEVABLE amound on the ground right now!
