Willie is almost done! I am finishing up the backstitch and still have to do all of the french knots for all of the eyes on the little woodland creatures.. After that I have to iron it, then put all of the embellishments and beads on it. Bada-bing, bada-boom it will be done! Those little cardinals are so precious!
It is cold with a capital C here. We have had a freeze for the last couple of nights. I lost a couple of plants, but it could be worse. We are expecting another freeze here tonight. I have every blanket possible on the bed. Liesl has been snuggling alot in the past couple of nights, too
With as cold as it was last night, it was hard to believe anyone would be in line at the stores to shop at 4 am. It must have been really brutal. I was crazy enough to try at 7:30am only to try to see what the hubbub was all about. I wrapped Liesl up in a blanket and out the door we went. I went to Target but turned around and left pretty much immediately. The shelves were empty and it was loud and overly crowded. I trotted over to Kohl's afterward. Being the glamorous, livin' la vita loca kind of girl that I am I bought a shower curtain for half price. Glamor, glamor...
After leaving Kohl's I decided the best use of time would be to take Liesl to the dog beach in Carmel. She ran the whole beach for an hour, smiling. I love seeing all of the happy dogs on the beach. My little furgirl looked like the happiest of them all and kept stopping and jumping up on me as if to say, "This is SO great!" She came home a sandy, wet mess, took her bath, then slept all afteroon. She was a happy girl and it was way more fun than going to any more stores. It is true about the holidays really being about time spent with the ones you love.

A clock from Target. It is both retro and red! I got it on a big back to school sale for about $6. It is from the dorm room section (they still have them!) It is regular priced $7.99. So cute.
A mother of pearl mosaic box that I bought at Marshalls for $9.99. I keep it on my nightstand to hold my pens, sticky notes and book light. It is luminescent and is just pretty. It also keeps all of the clutter out of sight.
A heart shaped beach rock! (I showed it to my Pastor and she smiled and said, "God hearts you!" I carry it with me sometimes because it makes me feel peaceful, and is a reminder that God is always with me, particularly in hard times. I also keep this on my nightstand so that I see it when I go to bed and when I wake up. He sends us miracles when we need them, and signs of His love are around us all of the time!
