. . . and that is to be expected. illinois and december usually equal cold. but 1) when it barely reaches the teens, i try to stay home as much as possible and 2) when i have spotty internet, i go a little batty with cabin fever. i have been kicked off blogger so many times this weekend it is a bit ridiculous. and twice while writing this post.
oh well, i got a little more sewing done than i would have. and definitely more cleaning. i can't wait to show y'all my new pillow cases! and i have a few more advent collages to share. that is if i can get comcast, my laptop, and this fibro-ridden body to cooperate.
on a not-as-bitter-but-still-quite-cold day last week, we picked up our christmas tree. here is the outing in photos, with no captions, because i just want to hit publish, okay?
p.s. do you watch the sing-off on nbc? we loved it last year and season two premiered tonight. so, so good. seriously. check it out.
