Ramblings and The December Daily: Days 19 and 20

It's December Daily time. Again. I really have to wonder when I can get back to the regularly scheduled layouts and when I do will I ever use the colors red and blue again. I am doubting those two colors will make an appearance in any of my layouts for a long time. Not that I hate them. I just need to break up with them. So here is Day 19 and 20:
Day 19 was when I first began to seriously shop. I am normally done by this time, so I am blaming my delay on all the extra time I was spending putting my December Daily together. That time should have been spent shopping. I'm lying. I got paid and that is why I held off until this time. Whatever the real reason, shopping late kept me on budget and kept me from the buying/returning rotation. Next year I am starting late again, except when it comes to getting those Bakugan - the hot toy around my area. Those buggers were hard to find. Good thing I found a couple earlier. I was going to use those to bribe my niece and nephews into posing for a Christmas portrait, but that never occurred. It seems they are not posers and may never be again. Grrr.

Day 20 was a snow day. It snowed quite a lot, which resulted in most people being home bound. I have a Jeep and was on a tight shopping schedule, so it didn't stop me - only slowed me down. Came home to find this machine in my driveway. All I can say is thank goodness for friends with large machinery. It was a bit overkill having that large contraption doing my small driveway, so Reece did our street, too. There is never a way to thank someone enough for clearing a path to the mall, Target and Caribou for you. Nope...there sure isn't. Muchos Gracias, Amigo!

Well, that is it in the creative realm. I could go on and whine about rude, nasty people and I did, but I am going to delete it. They shouldn't get that amount of power. However, let me say one thing about it and I will end. If you ever need a lesson on how to treat people look no further than how you want to be treated. If you can't treat someone like how you wish to be treated, then stay home, stay off the phone and keep to yourself, because the person you are being sarcastic to knows how to do reverse look up. Got it? Whew...I feel better. Have a happy day!

I love blue and red together but I can see how it would be old when you *have* to use it. It looks great though! :)

beautimus! Are you almost done with my album? I've had a great time being Denise in December and can't wait to have the album to remember it by. ;o)

How about brown. Or green. Or teal. All are lovely colors.
