Can you believe it is already December? Time flies it seems the older we get. I guess I must be starting to get older, cause where did 09' go too? I thought Obama was just inaugurated the other day! Wow.. that was fast! Next thing you know you will be doing your taxes.
Janine our daughter from Germany is flying home for Christmas in a couple of weeks. Think Angelika and I may put up a few decorations before it is over with. We will wait for the kids to come over first before we put up a tree. We usually let them decorate the tree.
Angelika has been busy making her hand made hats for Christmas, she ships daily all over the world. This is her busy time, so I know she appreciates all the help I can do for her at this time of year. I assist with making some of her tags she uses when she packs the hats customers have ordered. She really does a great unique job in her style of packing. Lot's of TLC goes into each one of her packages.
I completed 3 more paintings, but will only be posting 2 of the 3. I also framed and matted another 7 clans painting. I am wanting to make a presentation to the Otoe Missouria tribe with it. I want to share with the tribe where all members can view it.
I guess I need to think about what to get for Christmas gifts for everyone. Think we may send out a few Christmas cards this year as well.
The money I made from the painting sales from the speaking engagement with the Daughters of the American Revolution. My plan was to pay it forward, but we had a death in our extended family. I helped my family with the cost of the feast for the traditional meal. I know there is a blessing from that.
I cleaned out my closet, and removed clothes I no longer use. I packed them up and took them to the Salvation Army. I know they will be put to good use. Someone may stay warm this winter.
I just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and if I don't get to make another post before 2010, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year as well.
