Yawn... 20 More Shopping Days!

Er... or is that 20 more knitting days? I haven't even had a chance to start my holiday knitting. Anyway, time for a big 'ole Monday YAWN... feel free to join in!

Had a very busy weekend with the Holiday Open House on Saturday. I have several photos to come later in the week... I didn't sell as much as I had hoped, but did learn a lot about what people want (bigger sizes for one!). Heather seemed to do fairly well though - yea! She brought along the hat she just finished up for Jacob too... gorgeous! Can't wait for her to post the pattern.

We went to the Pats game yesterday and they just barely won! Wanna see the view from the nosebleed sections via a tiny little cell phone camera (and no joke - we were 3 rows from the tipty top)?


Not quite as impressive as the view I had in August, huh? At least it wasn't unbearably cold. It was actually fair "warm" earlier in the day with the sun beating down, but the wind did pick up some and it got chilly towards the end. Nothing that an $8 hot chocolate didn't cure... would've been better with some Bailey's, but ah well.

I forgot to report on the Trans-Siberian Orchestra show we went to the night after Thanksgiving. In one simple word, amazing! If you haven't seen this show yet, GO! Its well worth the ticket price for one of the best nearly 3 hour long shows you can see ... whether you like Christmas music or not, I think almost anyone would love the show! Complete with amazing guitar solos, pyrotechnics, an amazing light show and superior musicians. My cell phone doesn't take the best photos, but here's a shot of the pyrotechnics...

That's all for now. I'll be back with more photos for your viewing pleasure later in the week ... including my haul from Gina's blog contest and the Holiday Open House. Don't forget to go listen to Gina's newest Podcast "Holiday GiftTastic" if you haven't already! I need to do that myself. Speaking of contest, I haven't had any takers on my "first 5 to post get art" thing. You can still post if you're interested in participating (I'll wait til Wednesday), but remember you have to blog the same thing on your own blog too!

Well, back to holiday shopping (how did we ever get all this crap it all done before the internet??) and then its off to take my honey out to dinner for his birthday tonight. Keep the holiday knitting going kids... 20 more days (no you can't finish Christmas morning!)...
