It's Christmas day & another year is almost finished. I am looking back over the past year, & looking ahead, to what is coming. Anyway, I can't seem to remember all the stuff I wanted to say, so I will have to come back & finish this later. Time to go watch "A Muppet Family Christmas."

Today's the 14th, getting things happening for the holidays. I crossed the border yesterday, got the last of the presents mailed off. We have the tree up & decorated.
I have been designing some of our own Christmas cards again this year. I wasn't sure I was going to continue doing it, given that Picnik closed & I loved some of the special effects they had, like this:

But some new sites that I've recently found, have some really beautiful & amazing Christmas frames & I am quite happy with them.

In other news, I rode 7 miles on my exercise bike this morning, a new personal best for me! We bought it in late August, to help us both stay in better shape, during the nasty weather.
It does seem to have been helpful. I am pushing myself a bit, as I am having a lot of trouble losing weight & getting in better shape & I know that given my upcoming foot surgery in January, it is bound to be a challenging time.

It's early December, getting ready for the holidays. Shopping, baking, all that fun stuff. Made a batch of peppermint patties, chocolate coconut balls & Frosty's hats, last week. I forgot to take a photo, but here's one of last Christmas's Frosty hats.
I've been trying out several new free sites with Christmas (& other) frames, to make my own Christmas cards. Here's some examples:
I've been having a lot of fun, trying different styles. I was so sad when picnic closed, they had a wonderful frame of lights, like this:
I haven't been able to find another program that does this, if you find one, please let me know. Thank you.
Well, hopefully I'll get back on here before my birthday & Christmas come around, but just in case I don't
