Now what does one do in the days after Christmas...... it does feel a bit hollow, probably after all the excitement of buying presents for folks, making sure there is a nice meal and other goodies on the day.
So what Did I Do......
procrastinated mainly, something which I am very good at.
A little sewing, but I need to do more.
Planning ahhh there is always planning
and chatting (you all know now what that means) - emails to friends or messenger for family.
Through one of the Quilting Lists I belong to there has been discussion on Talking Books etc. and especially a gadget called The Kindle. Now I have looked into this but it appears this is about $300 plus you have to buy the books to hear them, not expensive but about $11.
Now being me, I probably would have jumped in and bought one, (if it was for The Scot definitely) but I talked it over with him and he thinks it is too expensive (he is not keen on Bells and Whistles and said why couldn't I go to the library and get books) but if I borrowed books I would have to sit and read and not sew.
The result being. LibroVox.. here you can download for free, a great number of books that are in the Public Domain. So I have decided to relive the Classics. As a trial I first went for an old favourie "Little Women"
This I have downloaded and put on a DVD,
Now to listen, No1 son kindly bought me a portable DVD play, when the Scot was so sick.
But last year the DVD Shop that hires them out sold up and left. so this will be a great thing to use sitting on the swing seat and sewing whilst I listen.
On the sewing scene my friend Betsy in USA and I have started the ChristmasProjects1010 group. This is to enable we are ready, without stress, for Christmas 2010 ummmm something like 358 more sleeps but lets not quibble. hahahha
