All day at work, the suitcase was on my mind. Flew to the store after working till past 9 pm, walked in when someone walked out - I'm sure the doors were already locked. Went directly to MY bag, did not pass GO, then to the case register and charged it. The cashier was laughing to see me again buying the bigger green case. She said she was glad I came back to get it before it was gone! People in the line ahead of me admired my good taste. I was wearing a lime green shirt. Another lady in line was also dressed in lime and we chatted about green. Me gusta mucho cosas verdes! What a sweetie.
I have no idea where I will store this one. It's big enough to live in. I could be a bag lady on the street. A very fashionable bag lady with all my frogs in my green luggage on wheels. No stolen shopping cart for me.
For now, it's beside the Christmas Tree - too big to fit under it. Merry Christmas to me! Thank you to everyone who commented.

While shopping for elegant gray pants to wear to a holiday party, I found this gorgeous suitcase. Couldn't pass it up - on sale. There's another huge one still at the store which would hold ALL my crafting supplies for the next big retreat in the woods. Should I go back and get it? Who's going to be my enabler on this one?
I found the right pants by the way. And two other pairs. It's probably a good thing I don't go shopping often.

I'm on track on a number of projects but I feel like there's a steam engine right on my heels. Running as fast as I can.
I'm in the middle of a big, really big weaving project and I have to go looking for more paper to roll it on with. Mine is wider than my daughter's warp and I really should take my own advice and just get a roll of the right size that is a mile long - just in case.
Then there's the art quilt top I'm just about done with. An online class project. It's coming along nicely and will be a Christmas present for some lucky person who doesn't have time to read blogs.
Yesterday, the grill king and I got a lot of shopping done. Now we need to start wrapping things up and stowing them under the tree. Of course, none of the presents purchased so far are for the out of town crowds so no shipping will be done early.
Still carrying around a box of tissues and cough drops.

Picking out toys for tots and big boys is really hard. Mostly they already have what they need and want. Sometimes we want them to have better things, so we shop and shop and shop. We found some practical things, some fun things, some silly stuff and some good chocolate.
Not a bad haul, really. Rained hard after we unloaded the car!
Got most of the napkin warp rolled onto the back beam - need more paper or corregated.
Finished up some photo editing of a vacation album that will be printed up very professionally for gifts, too.
Need a nap now.

I dreamed someone had removed the shower curtain and I was taking a shower without it and no water was hitting the floor. Must have been because I was thinking yesterday that it was about time to take it down and wash it.... so I did today. Dreams are powerful incentives.
Then I got my hair cut. Just walked in to Supercuts after using my coupon at Hobby Lobby for Peltex and there was an opening with a stylist who has straight, thin hair so I figured I was pretty safe in her hands. She did just what I asked her to efficiently and confidently and I like how it turned out. The grill king commented on it positively. Another item crossed off my to-do list.
Dinner tonight with the kids to celebrate my daughter's birthday some more.
