Done, Finished, Completed, Through, Finite'....

I am ready for Christmas. The gifts are done, wrapped, and under the tree. The coconut cream pie is in the oven, the stockings are hung, and I've only got 2 loads of laundry left to do. I think this is the first year I've been ready this early. Usually I'm up past midnight on Christmas eve frantically finishing things up. I'm gonna sit back, relax, and do some recreational beading and knitting this evening.

I finished the spiral rope for Phyllis's gift.

I also redid the picot edging on the cabochon. It looked really cool before but it didn't want to lay correctly when worn, so I took it out and did something a little less complicated. I like this edging much better.

It has been snowing all day. The snow flakes are the kind that have the six points, lacy, and flat, and are simply gorgeous. I wish I could figure out a way to take pictures of them. My camera is good, but not that good!

We had a visitor this morning.

Are you following me?

I couldn't tell if it was a he or a she. It's unusual for us to see moose after we get snow. They usually stay by Rathdrum Creek during the winter, about a mile or so west of us, or head south across the Prairie.

Last night, while I was beading away, Chenille decided to show of her acrobatic skills.

That's a thin screened plasma tv she's balancing on. I guess she wanted to know what time it was.

The oven is beeping. Time to take the pie out.

Have a great day.
