Finding content to blog about today is a challenge ... much of what I am doing involves undercover work!  Gift making means that I cannot share it until after December 25th!
Our local weather has not improved!  We have had heavy rain for 13 days without a break!  Some days have included hurricane force winds!  And our temperatures have been unusually warm ... mid to high 40s!
Retrievers love wet weather ... no complaints from Nissa!  Her name means "happy little girl" in Norwegian ... and it fits her perfectly!  I actually took this picture to show what a recent wind storm did to the lake.  It stirred up the bottom of the lake, making it muddy and tearing lose the aquatic plants growing there.  The waves then pushed them to the shoreline!  Large floating clumps of the plant material were floating all over the surface of the lake!
Our days are still getting shorter ... we cannot see the sun due to heavy cloud cover ... but the sun set today at 3:40 pm and will rise tomorrow at 9:44 am!  The winter solstice is a week from today ... a day that we celebrate here in our remote corner of the planet!  I created my own version of sunshine today by working with this summer filled, blueberry themed fabric!
More blueberries!  Yep ... they came to the rescue and saved our Candy Cane Forest!!!  Someone thought the Candy Cane Forest was for her recreation!  Can you believe it?  Naughty kitty!  And only 10 days until Christmas!

Whew!  I've written a blog post 14 days in a row ... hard to believe that tomorrow is the half way mark for December ... and 2018 is just around the corner! 

Do what you love!  Do dillydally!

    The Blueberry fabric is so pretty.
