Whatever happened to "if you don't have anything nice to say .... Say nothing at all"? Okay so I like my Hot chocolate and snow and no one else does ... So I can't post it to my timeline without people disagreeing?? Really?? What about White Christmas and all that jazz? And even if you don't like it ... I think people should learn to disagree with each other civilizedly ... Okay I just made that word up and someone is going to take my head off for it because that is just the way my day is going but I am ready for it this time. I said it and I stand by it ... PLEASE DISAGREE CIVILIZEDLY!!! Not just with me but with everyone. There is no need to be so negative or rude about anything. Doesn't anyone know that it is okay to disagree?? It is okay to say everyone is entitled to an opinion. You don't have to cram your views down everyone's throat you know. It is fine to just "smile and wave boys, smile and wave." My family does it all the time. We know that we all can disagree about everything under the sun and still get along just peachy ... *I am now singing "why can't we be friends, why can't we be friends" Okay Done whining now ... Sorry just been one of those days.
As for The rest of my day Mom and I cleaned out the fiber room before heading out to finish the last of the Christmas shopping. On our way we dropped off a donation of yarn to the Senior Citizen's center. Mom says that since some of the ladies make granny squares her basket of left over scraps is like a treasure to someone who is short of funds. Scraps of this color or that can easily become a round on a Granny Square. Mom says that by giving her scrap basket to them each year, she doesn't have an over flowing basket and they get to keep on Crocheting. She says it is a win/win and she also says that if a few skeins or two get in the wrong bag by accident they will have something to tie all the scrap granny squares together ... Besides Mom says it makes her feel better to know her scraps are going some place they can be loved and use. And would you believe that when the "throw" (as they call it) is done they normally raffle it off and Mom being who she is buys chances to win it ... She did say "Thank the Lord I have never won" ... She says she wouldn't know what to do with it. Knowing her she would probably donate it to someone else ,,, LOL
Oh and I have one more secret ... I know what Mom and Dad got me for Christmas. I was with Mom today when she picked it up. She said I had to wait to tell everyone though ... Man I am terrible at keeping secrets ... Okay I will share one secret ... I am mailing everyone's calendars out tomorrow. If you haven't got yours to support the next shepherd through the scholarship fund there is still plenty of time. You can order them o
