It's sure is cold in our part of the county. Seems like all the snow went North of the Ohio River and all we got was an ice/slush mix. Kind of messy to drive in but no snow!

I finished my Christmas shopping this weekend and now I'm ready to pull out the wrapping paper today and finish the job.

I went to the theater this week and enjoyed the play "The Christmas Carol". My sister treated my mother and me to a delicious dinner and the play at Actors Theater. It was a festive evening and lots of fun. I have one more work related Christmas Party this week and then I can relax and enjoy a few days off for Christmas.

I decided to join in with Sharon's 2008 Take it Further Challenge next year. I've been a little worried that my shoulder was never going to get better but I finally broke down and mentioned all the problems I was having when I was at the Dr. several weeks ago. He diagnosed it as tendonitis of the rotator cuff and prescribed an anti-inflamatory drug.

LOL ... I figured it was just old age and something I was just going to have to deal with...but sure enough the medicine has helped! Everyday I seem to be able to move my shoulder without as much pain and stitching does not hurt as much. I'm also sleeping better since I don't wake up everytime I roll over onto my side! That alone is a miracle!!! I'm so glad I will be able to join in the fun of the challenge. I've been planning my travel quilt for over a year now and I plan to work on it for the challenge.

Hopefully I'll have some picture soon of a few projects I'm finishing up for Christmas.

Karen, I know it's still cold, but I think I'd prefer your weather to all that snow!

Your sister did a really nice thing, and the three of you will no doubt have fond memories of that evening together for a long time to come.

Enjoy your free time, and hope you find some stitching time in there.
