Baby . . . It's COLD outside!
It is very cold in Mesa, Arizona. Ok . . . it's not below zero cold, but it is cold for our neck of the woods. It is also very exciting because I can get out the sweaters, and long sleeve shirts, and cordoroy slacks and pretend like it is winter. I can also pile on the blankets and pull out the flannel jammies, and drink hot chocolate, and make lots of pots of homemade soup! Like the song says . . . it's a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful time of the year.
I just finished creating my class project for CKC Mesa. The deadline date for project submission is December 1st, and then the waiting game begins until we are notified if and when our classes have been approved. The Mesa Convention is in April and we will be sponsoring a booth as well as teaching classes. Great fun for the store!
The house is very quiet. All of the Thanksgiving visitors went home on Sunday and I really miss them. We had a great weekend and even celebrated Luke's 10th birthday a couple of days early. It was fun to have him here for his party. He requested a "FEAST" even though we just had Thanksgiving dinner the day before. His feast was barbecued chicken, mashed potatoes, and his mom's homemade rolls. Dessert was ice cream sandwiches. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed a second day of feasting and festivity.
I've been burning the candle at too many ends and it feels like there is no candle left! I have had early morning meetings every day this week . . . tomorrow is no exception. But, there is light at the end of the tunnel and I am looking forward to the weekend. We have a great "Make 'n Take" at the store on Saturday. It's a wooden wall art project to hang your Christmas stockings on. There is a picture on the Devine Memories website. You need to sign up for the project ahead of time so we have enough kits for everyone. Stop by the store anytime between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to make your board. Cost of the class is $14.00.
Well, it's off to bed and flannel pj's and my favorite down comforter. I know it's cold outside because the heater has come on a couple of times tonight and the thermostat is set at 62 degrees! I hope my Utah kids are staying warm . . . it's supposed to be below freezing there. Speaking of freezing, we do have a temperature warning and need to cover up our fruit trees tonight. Have a good night's sleep and a great day tomorrow!
