So Did I Really Accomplish Anything?

Let's face it, holiday weekends are almost always a total washout if you want to get anything done. Really, I felt lucky to get the house clean for company - younger daughter and her cat. They showed up on Wednesday and Thursday, of course was Thanksgiving, which I spent cooking. It was 60+ degrees here and by the time dinner was done, I was ready to put shorts on.

The day after Thanksgiving, was of course, Black Friday. No, I didn't participate in the crazy sales this year. I did it once and that has cured me forever. My wonderful DH, however, used to get up early the day after Thanksgiving and shop for my gifts. Even he participated in cyber shopping this year. Mine is almost done, just have to pick up an item set aside for me and I will be done. I've kept up with the wrapping so that is out of the way.

Unfortunately, the weather does not want to cooperate enough for us to get our Christmas stuff out of the shed or any lights up outside. This incessant rain will make me crazy yet.

I did get the chance Sunday night to participate in My Memories FB page Speed Scrap. It was fun, and I layered away.  The page was mostly done with "Joyeux Noel" by Becca. I did the word art for "2010" but The Merry and Christmas were already for me to plop on the page. This was done, incidentally with My Memories Suite version 3 which was released last week. Some of the changes are big, some subtle, but they really make it easier to use.

If you are observant, you will notice that I redesigned the blog header. I'm still tweaking it, hope to get it a little smaller yet, and plan to change it out regularly! So I guess the weekend wasn't a total loss!
