This is the last square in the Sheep Virtues sampler. A whole year has gone by already. Wow.
All the November samplers are packed up and put away and the winter ones have taken their place in the sewing box.
I also ran through the house yesterday packing up all the fall stuff. I bought this puzzle to work on in early November thinking it would last the month. The Mister had it done it days. He's already started on one his Christmas puzzles. He collects the Hallmark ones and he has quite a stack.
I took all the fall stuff down but I didn't replace it with holiday stuff. I have to be in the mood and I'm not there yet. It takes me a week or so into the month to realize the holiday's not going away and I better do something about it.
I did throw that pumpkin pie away. I was proud of myself. I could have eaten the whole thing but I didn't.
I should be tossing out the Halloween Jack O'Lantern too. I turn it around and use it in November in the front bed as a Thanksgiving decoration. By now it's usually rotted but it's been so cold it's been perfectly preserved.
This surprise package almost got me into the holiday mood today. Almost. It's from Mary S who is all the way out in California. The Mister LOVES this candy. He had a co-worker who used to bring it into to work and when he saw it he was all for diving in. Not yet. I have plans for this. Holiday plans. It'll just have to wait.
Thanks again, Mary!
