Staycation continues...

And I am enjoying it, too. Today was a stormy, snowy blustery day with 25 mile/hour wind gusts. I sewed on a tote bag for my DD. I will have a finished pic tomorrow. I just need to line it. I want to make a few of these. The bags are fun and relatively good for instant gratification. They also will use up my stash of fabrics. The pattern for this particular bag is in a magazine I bought but I found it also on their web site http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/. It is the blue tote from the latest magazine called Curve Appeal.






Pictures shown are of a light display at a local golf course we went to on Saturday. Then we went to the town's park with "old school" displays that I enjoyed too. I think that everyone had fun over the week of Christmas, I know I did. I hated for it to end. Soooooo...
I started to clean up the house. Then I started my diet and exercise program. Well as much as a diet as I can do with all the goodies around. Then.....
I bought a flat iron for my hair. It really did work to make my hair straight and not frizzy. New year coming so I thought I would get a head start. I was getting a little sick of the "memory lane" trips that my MIL was taking over the weekend so I thought looking ahead is good. 2009 wasn't a bad year but I am looking forward to next year. I am not getting into the year in review TV shows either. I think I will watch College football bowl games instead!!

I just bought a new straightener too. It's amazing how I didn't notice how crappy mine was getting. It didn't even get hot anymore... the new one is awesome! You should send me a pic of your straight hair. :)
