This is a little peek of something I'm working on as a gift for someone- can you tell what it is? Just the green part..

I have had this as long as I can remember-as far as I know it's the first cross stitch gift I have ever received- probably when I was a baby. My great-grandma made it for me. :)

I won this CD on facebook from my favorite classical station. :) It came in the mail today! :) Can't wait to listen to it!

Hanna had this little visitor on her laptop tonight.. she freaked out, silly girl! A harmless little ladybug, probably wanted a warm place to stay.

Comfiest pants ever! These are the bottoms of my Chilly Willy PJs- actually too warm to wear to bed but the pants are like wearing a blanket! They are so soft and cushy(and cute!)

Pumpkin bread!! Unfortunately loaf on the left stuck a little- well both did but the other one stuck on the bottom, not the top.

My steals of the day! 90% off Christmas items at Michael's-got that box of cards and those 4 wreath trims for  less than $2! The wreath trims were 5 and 9 cents apiece! :) Also got a free lotion at Bath and Body Works cause I'm a facebook fan. There's one more day, so hurry and "like" them if you haven't already! I haven't decided if I like the scent yet or not. lol

New(to me) books! Like I need any more.. lol. My boss's wife knows I love to read, and she had some books she, or maybe her daughter was getting rid of, so she sent them to work with my boss.  Most of them didn't look that interesting to me, or they were ones I had already read.. but these two look good.  I added them to my ever-growing to-read list on goodreads!

I had to make a trip to the post office today, and this church is right nearby.  St. Mary's building -this one pictured-dates back to 1889.  In all the years I've lived here I have never been inside- sometime I would love to go in! They still have traditional Latin mass, to my understanding.  There is what appears to be a parsonage(or whatever the Catholic equivalent is) built on to the back of the church- I'm not sure if that's what it is, but whenever I see it I think of how neat it would be to live there- whenever you felt far away from the Lord you could just walk in to the sanctuary and pray!

I took David to the library today- the library was closed, but I did get a picture of the tree I should've taken a picture of yesterday. :)  I took a picture of the whole tree, but it really didn't do it justice, so I took this close-up.

Well, the pictures I wanted to take today didn't work out. Saw a beautiful tree, forgot I had my camera with me. Took a picture of my husband, who was so kindly sewing a scissors fob finish for me(he is much more proficient with a sewing machine than I, which is totally unfair because he claims no one ever showed him how to sew), but he made me erase it, because he hates having his picture taken.  Then tried to take a picture of dd and her friend, but dd stuck her tongue out at and her friend covered her face. Sooooo... fellow stitchers  might be interested in this- here is my stitching bag! lol I reorganized it today- and found I had more WIP than I remembered! :-O

Sunsets are so much prettier when clouds are involved, don't you think?

My baby is reading now- there is nothing like listening to your child read, and figure out new words! I love it.

Wish I would've read about this blog idea sooner, so I could start the first of the year, but better late than never right? It's basically about posting a picture a day, taken that day I assume. :) I picked my title from one of my favorite songs from the musical "Rent." :) Thought it was kind of appropriate! To start things off.. a sneak peek of my most recent cross stitch finish.
Technically finished today- when I picked it up to take the photo I noticed a stitch had come out, so I had to fix it. :)
