How many days till Christmas??

I don't think I want to know how many days till Xmas - although I think I made a good dent in clearing my work area up - this is where we eat - put all the stamps in plastic crates - separated by Xmas/Winter and regular. Put a bunch of paper away. I do need to make at least one more card. A backward card for my neighbors and finish some ornaments. But I do feel good about what I accomplished - why does it always seem that it is worse before it is better.

Party at work tomorrow so I said I would bring potatoe soup. I make the different parts of the soup and then when I get to work - I put it in the crock pot and by lunch - we have a very yummy soup. It is suppose to be very cold tomorrow so it will be a great treat for everyone. We were in the 40's today and single digits tonight with winds - yuck and all the melted snow will now freeze on the road.

This is a holiday card I made a while ago. Non traditional colors.
