Twice In One Day

So what are the rules of this thing? Can you post more then once a day or I am really showing just what an amatuer I am!?

Got my first "Comment" which put me into a frenzy. Someone is actually reading this! Thanks Nicole. I will try to add a few more Christmas photos. Rather dull...mostly of the cats since I have not yet trained them to photograph us.

Here's Alix the oldest. She is nearly 16 and the main reason we stayed home this Christmas. I knew she couldn't make the long trip to my mom and dad's in New Jersey and I certainly didn't want to leave her in the questionable care of neighbors.

As this photo loads I am already cursing my painfully slow dial-up connection. I might hold off on posting any more photos tonight because I will fall asleep long before they all download.

We had a wonderful Christmas dinner at Joe's boss Jim's house. Prime Rib, stuffed potatoes, asparagus, etc. and tons of cakes. Sandy, Jim's wife is really into primative style decorating and she had a 14 foot tall Christmas tree covered in primative style ornaments. I photographed them so I can try to make them myself. Kind of sneaky, but I can't bear to spend money on something I can do on my own. Here are a few.................
Maybe I should actually get off this computer and work on some crafts. It never too soon for next Christmas.


  1. HALLOOOO, you've been keeping secrets!!! Welcome to blogland, Jennifer, you'll have fun here!! Please feel free to share all you're crafty plans with us!! I'm sure they're going to be wonderful... I've seen your stitching! Your beautiful PS Christmas ornament is adorning our tree once again this year!
    Happy Holidays!!

  2. Ah, I see my meddling worked! Welcome to Blogland, Jennifer! What a lovely surprise to see you here. Can't wait till you show us some of your lovely stitching, and some more Christmas snaps!

  3. Hi Jennifer,
    Congratulations on starting up your blog! And thanks for letting me know about it. You can count on me as a faithful reader; I've added you to my bookmark favorites.
    Your techno-challenged (cyber) stitching pal in Pittsburgh,
    Nancy in PA

  4. Jennifer, I'm so excited to see you've finally set up a blog! Hooray!!!

  5. Hi Jennifer, I've stopped by thanks to Barbara (who actually had time to post even though she has a newborn!). As someone addicted to reading blogs (especially cross stitch blogs), you can never post too much ;).

    You stayed home for the holidays for your cat's sake? You're good people!

    Can't wait to see your stitching.

  6. Welcome to blogging. Your cat picture is cute. I know what you mean about not wanting to take your cat with you to your parents or leave him in care of neighbors. I have a 15 year old cat and promised him he would not be going for any car rides and I'd only leave him for a couple of days at a time if I had to leave. Nice blog I enjoyed it.

  7. Welcome to blogging! I just started a couple of months ago, and it's not so scary. When I first started, I asked a friend IRL what the limit was on posting, and she told me "not more than 3 a day, your life's not that interesting". Your life might be more interesting than mine though, so it's up to you to decide.

    It's not bad or sneaky to be inspired by other peoples' crafts or decorating ideas. Next time tell Sandy what you're up to and ask to take a pic, I'm sure she'll be flattered that you like her taste so much!

  8. Welcome to blogland, Jennifer! Great Christmas decoration! Alix is beautiful. :)
    I came here through Barbara's blog!

  9. I've arrived via Barbara too and just wanted to pop by and say 'Hi!'

    Welcome to the blog-o-sphere!

    I'm just LOVING that little hare in the last photo! When you figure out how it's done, holler, because I NEED one of those on my tree. It's just adorable!

    Can't wait to see your stitchy pics too :)

  10. Welcome to Blogging! there's no rules at all! I've posted several times a day when I'm bored!

  11. Hi Jennifer! Looks like you are doing fine with your blog. I enjoyed all your photos. I also came over from Barbara's blog.
    Happy New Year!
