Christmas stuff  
Well yesterday didn't go so well. I must have eaten something that gave me a bad stomach ache. It started hurting while we were out. We got almost everything we wanted but I really didn't get to enjoy it. I was very disapointed since I'd been looking forward to the day off so much then I get sick and we had to come home and I was in bed the rest of the evening and night. I feel much better today but gosh, I still feel I wasted the day. Yeah we got lots accomplished but I didn't enjoy it. But it was nice still being together and we watched some movies on Netflix together. Anway, before I show what we got I'll post a little meme thing that Suzi tagged me with.

Color Meme. If you want to do the meme, leave a comment, and I'll give you a colour that I think represents you/makes me think of you, and then you list ten things you like or dislike in that colour.

My color was Green.

1. Green budgies. Of course I love budgies. Normal budgies are green. But my favorite budgies are sky blues or light yellows or a mix of the two.
2. Kiwis. Yum, kiwis are good to eat.
3. Green Violin. I've always wanted a green violin. Or pink, or blue. Just something that isn't a normal wood violin.
4. Nail Polish. I like these two green nail polishes.
5. Green Eggs. My chickens lay green and blue eggs. But these aren't from my chickens.
6. Gourds. I love green gourds hanging on the vine.
7. Sprite. One of my favorite sodas. I love this can.
8. Jewel Beetle. I LOVE these beetles. I have one as a keychain in plastic and I have earings made from their wings.
9. Green Jelly shoes. I just love 80's jelly shoes. I want more than the few I've been able to find.
10. Green Peas. I actually like these out of the can better than fresh ones. I could eat a whole can like soup out of a bowl.

I do love green. It's probably my second favorite color. Tourquise/blue is my fave and then flourecent pink. Those three together are an awesome combination.

EDIT:Decided to put the rest behind the cut because it was too long.

So we got a few gifts. I'm almost done with my shopping now. I got the printing paper for the cards. Now I just need to stock up on printer ink. At Target we got a new star for the Christmas tree since I don't really like the one we got last year. I do like this one a lot.

The only thing keeping it from being perfect is that he bulbs are white. I'd rather they have all been different colors. I don't know if I can buy just colored bulbs individually.

We got these awesome Christmas balls for the tree too. I love Christmas balls and we didn't have any. I'll be putting these up today. Chris also got me a giant tourquise Christmas light decoration. It was so funny. I was playing with it pretending it was a space ship. I love it. No idea where I'm going to put it yet. We also got some foil snow flakes like the falls ones that I'd ordered. I'll post pics of those next time.

Help! I'm getting over run with eggs! We're up to six cartons now. That's the most we've ever had. I'm going to make the peacans soon but it only requires one egg. May-be two. Yarg. Well I can sell one box at least but we've got to give away the rest or something. And production's actually down by one since Omega is still sick and recovering. Well it's better to have too much than too little.

Hehe, ok. Then I'll give you GREEN. Hehe it will look similar to mine.

Yes, Christmas cookies would be fun to make. I don't have Christmas Cookie Cutters. Must get some. Well I do have stars and circles. Those work for any holiday. I still have the Thanksgiving pie in the fridge. We need to eat it or get rid of it. We need to learn to make Omelets for sure.

Green is my favorite color, and blue and turquoise are next. I need to get a hold of emerald green nail polish, but I need to find some that isn't flat.

I love those Christmas balls. Now I wish I had bought that turquoise tinsel I saw at Hobby Lobby yesterday so I could send it to you. I've never seen turquoise tinsel anywhere else. They also have a huge selection of Christmas balls. I saw some pretty Christmas balls at Border's too of all places. They looked like little disco balls.

I'll have to remember that then.

Aren't they pretty? Aw, that's sweet of you. Yeah Borders has some nice Christmas stuff. They have these mini metallic Christmas trees that are so neat.

I still need to do my colour memes!
Argh, we don't have our decorations out yet, you're making me feel all festive!

Glad to help spread the cheer.

Love the look of your eggs. Yes, you need to make omelettes! So simple to make and yummy! I love capsicum in mine and parsley and spring onions, and I love salt sprinkled on the top :)

That's awesome that you have a jewel beetle key ring and ear rings made from their wings. I especially love the idea of the ear rings!

I am eating kiwifruit every day right now :)

Sorry that you got a stomach ache. I hope it goes away soon.

Yeah, Chris is the cook so I'll have to find him a recipe.

I'll have to take a pic of them and share.

Yeah it's gone now.

I'd like to see a pic of the ear rings :)

Funny, Gyro's the cook around here, too :)

Ok. I'll look for them and my beetle and take some pics of them.
