This is such a perfect time to start thinking about Christmas and winter- when the temps have hovered around 90-100 and above for about 2 weeks now. ENOUGH ALREADY! I enjoy Christmas, especially giving gifts. That is so much fun. I am married (29.5 yrs), mom of 3 girls, grandma of 1 boy. I live on a farm in North Dakota. We have sheep, cows, peacocks (saw a new mama with 3 babies yesterday), guinea fowl, 1 lonely duck, mini horses, ( a new baby there too), 1 donkey that helps guard the sheep, a Great Pyrenees Sheep dog, 2 Border Collies and several barn cats. Oh yeah, one tortoise named Dude.
Christmas time is a busy time for me but that is because I have a handmade candy business, that I opened in 1988. I start making candy in early October and hopefully am finished by the 2nd week of December so I can rest up before Christmas.
I love to knit, am still learning this craft, the 2nd time around. I also love to do Hardanger, it is so relaxing. Last year my DH worked in Hawaii on Oahu during the winter and when he came home for Christmas I went back to Hawaii with him and spent 30, yes thirty, glorious days exploring the island while he worked during the day. .
