Its beginning to.......

Look alot like Christmas!!!!
I can't believe its December and christmas is only a week or two away. Until this morning it totally didn't feel like it.
Although we had our work christmas party already, and a pot luck in which I make a yummy supply of christmas rice krispie squares...

it still really doesn't feel like christmas time. Maybe its because my mind was a little preoccupied in wanting my Moose home. Did I mention he's home *insert massive grin from ear to ear* saturday night he arrived home, and although I was working that night he stopped in on the way home to see me. Boy am I glad he's home. After work that night I arrived home to find, my nicely tidied basement looking like THIS!!
ok ok so i knew we were putting down new flooring because I lugged it all in the house while Moose was gone. But I certainly wasn't expecting to come home a few hours later to find the carpet completely ripped up. Don't get me wrong i'm not complaining! That pink carpet was BEYOND nasty! We do however had a slight problem. See all that stuff on the floor that looks like snow???? That would be years old underlay thats stuck to the cement......... We went to Kent yesterday and they are completely out of the stuff that helps to lift it so it looks like we will be shovling it off, bit by bit, very tedieous work. Don't go telling me well it looks like you've got alot of it off already because thats only PART of the basement. I'm standing in the middle of the main part, then there is more to the right. We'll see what it looks like when I get home from work.
Now I did say it was beginning to look alot like christmas...... well this might be why!!

I woke up to this, this morning. It was a total shock, I was heading to the bathroom, looked up and did a double take. SNOWWWWW!!! I know I won't be saying this in a month or two but right now I'm happy. I was starting to wonder, all these blogs I've been reading with snow in hot places had me wondering if we were ever getting any. I didn't know if I should be jealous or glad. Now I can say its beginning to look alot like christmas... for now:)

I have been knitting, and honestly I think Moose coming home made me knit faster, for whatever reason, I am back in action. I have to bind of the toe of my sock today at work and I'll have a finished pair to report later on. Whooooppppeeee!

Must run and get ready for work!

Yay!! Moose is back!!! Isn't it amazing how a dusting of snow makes it seem like the holiday season?

there are actually THREE weeks until Christmas day... don't scare me saying only one or two weeks, there's too much knitting for me to get done before then! : )

it doesn't ever snow where i'm at. actually i've not ever really even seen snow... everyone's snowy winter pictures are so pretty!

Rebekah said...

Yeah, so glad he's home. Thers nothing like a good homecoming.

Good luck with the flooring, it'll be beautiful when it's done at least.

Yay for knitting socks! Yay for snowwwwww!!! It's beginning to look like Christmas now. In a month or two it'll look like it's been winter for a month or two and you'll be looking forward to SPRING! hehe

HOORAY for Moose getting home! What a hard working guy! I bet he was so happy to get home and start working on the basement flooring project for his sweet pretty wife to have a nice floor when Christmas comes. Awww. :) Have y'all tried paint stripper on that stuff?? I had a wood floor once that the stuff was stuck to and it worked like a charm. I would think you could brush on the paint stripper, wait 10 minutes, and scrape it off like cutting butter with a hot knife. You should at least try it! Have fun with it and don't let that project cut into your knitting time! Moose earned this hard work by being away for so long, right? hehe

We got snow in Moncton today too. It started some time in the very early morning I think. It's been snowing all day and it hasn't let up yet (it's 8:30pm now). I am like you...loving the snow now (sorta anyway), but in a month or two I won't be liking it too much!
