The bog

So, last week my cubicle neighbor came to work deathly ill, and just coughed continuously for the entire day Tuesday.  Thank goodness she got some cough drops for Wednesday, but I believe she managed to infect half the office.  It sounds like an old time cancer ward up here.  I have not escaped the plague, and am coughing & sneezing whenever I don't have a cough drop or hard candy in my mouth.  Ah well, into each life a little rain must fall.

How 'bout that Meryl Streep!  A class act.  And can someone else please carry the President-elect's phone?  Just don't let him have the phone until he submits his tweet to his speechwriter for a little presidential polish.  The man needs a filter!  He's an embarrassment to his party.  The sad part is, he'll probably decide the job is too much work, and delegate most of it to Pence.  I shudder to think it.

I've been looking at Delica beads, and have narrowed down my choice for the Aeolian shawl to either transparent pale blue or light green -- for just a hint of color.  I'm still looking for a good option for applying the beads, which will mean buying something for that purpose.  None of my steel crochet hooks are small enough.  I guess I'll try the flosser (an inexpensive option), but I really want a couple of beaders in sizes .8 mm & 1.0 mm, from a party that will not be named here.  So far I've found one source, that charges $2 more for each than the inventor.

Like lightning

This has to be fast.  I never mentioned our one super Christmasy thing we did, right before the holiday.  We went out to Jellystone Campground to see the "Dancing Lights of Christmas"!  Very touristy, took forever & a day just to get to gate 'coz half of Nashville was in line, and the price!! Serious sticker shock!  The Plaidman grumbled, said it better be worth it. was!  Frankly fabulous, absolutely amazing, and we all agreed we'd cruise through it again next Christmas.  So, if you get a chance to come to Nashville next December, maybe you could check it out.
