Another Friday

Friday has rolled back around, very quickly, it seems.  I don't have any special plans, just working around the house & continuing my battle to gain control of my yard.  It's been a pretty uneventful week, but that can be a good thing.  Excitement isn't always positive, sometimes bland & boring is a good thing.  I'm still struggling with the time change, but I think most everyone is.  How can one hour be so disruptive??  I guess we're more of a creature of habit than we realize.  

Last weekend I went to visit with a friend of mine.  He lives in the same town & we do see each other quite often, but it's been a long time since we've something as "everyday" as grocery shopping.  I stopped by his house on Sunday & went to the grocery store with him.  He's a total man in the grocery store so it was go in, get what's on the list & get out.  I think I actually went over to visit with his cute little doggies & hang out at his house for a bit.  Do you blame me?

This is his garden shed.  I think it's almost as big as my house, or maybe I should say that my house is just a little larger than his garden shed.

Here's his front yard.  As you can see, he doesn't spend a lot of time behind a lawn mower.  That great sculpture was made by his step son.  I'll have to get a better photo of that one & some of the other artwork he's created.

That's his house at the very back.  It's kinda hard to see from this pic, but it's embedded into Duke Forrest & just about a mile from Duke University.

I told you I would post a pic of the Christmas cards that I had made so far, so here they are. 

I had fun making them with bits & pieces of things I had around the house.  I'm no card maker, but I enjoyed making these.  It's good to have something that you can knock out when you're feeling creative, but don't have the patience for a 2-3 hour project.

This is one of my favorites......I don't know why.  It's not the typical Christmas colors, but I think it's the pine cone border at the bottom.

Well, that's all for now.  I hope you all have a great weekend.

I love the texture on that tree in photo #3 ~ very cool!

You did a great job on the cards --
You should put some in yr shop.
They are definitely worth buying!

I've been d-cluttering the last 2 days, with a little more to do.
I've got 2 boxes in my trunk to donate. This place is just so small, and i have to make room for all of this fabric stuff, so i can GET to sewing! lol.

Have a great weekend Pam!

Thanks Stormy!! That's just our standard pine tree in pic #3. Good luck with the decluttering. I'm trying to work on that while I'm clearing the yard.
