on the seventh day of christmas…

7 Dec

it’s christmas time (oh yeah) by the barenaked ladies.

i used this song in a holiday picture slideshow/movie i made a few years ago. it reminds me of when i was a kid and we would put up the tree as a family. now i just have a small tree and this year my friend helped me put it up. it was quite sad that two intelligent girls had such a hard time figuring out how to put together the stupid base of the tree. seriously – we spent almost twenty minutes screwing screws into the base without result. i kept thinking, “righty tighty, lefty loosey. yep, i’m doing it right. why isn’t it staying?” i proclaimed more than once that i was just going to go buy a new tree, but i guess persistence paid off. we (i think she) finally figured it out and then i felt completely stupid because i remembered i had the same problem last year. durr!

progress on a christmas gift. i finished the owl pillow – hoorah! i’m quite pleased with the result. and, it just so happens, my niece and i have the same initial, so i could just keep it. but i won’t do that, however soft the cabled cashmere pillow back is. i’ll have to make my own.
