Christmas, pumpkins and stuff  
Well as usual your gifts are going to be late this year. I just can't seem to manage it no matter what ahead start I get. But I know you all will appreciate it regardless if it's late. I actually have most of the gifts. I think I'm only waiting on one to arrive in the mail. It's the stupid cards that held everything up this year. I thought about mailing the packages and the cards seperately but then I'd have to get more postage so it's better I just send it all at once than in parts.

I made a short video showing how to switch back to the old layout since a lot of people haven't figured out how yet. You can See it Here.

I still have pumpkins growing! I get to pick my big one today. I'm thrilled that of all the ones I planted my favorite the One Too Many is actually doing the best. I've got several small and medium ones coming in. The hardest thing now has been keeping the chickens away from them. I was wrapping them with netting but lost some because they held too much moisture and would rot. Now I know it Have todo just one thin layer and this seems to be working. Once we pick the big one I'll have material again to wrap the others.

Yesterday I chatted with my art friend on the phone. We talked for hours and he gave me a bunch to think about. But by the time we were done I was so tired from having been on the phone I didn't do any art. I don't know if I'll have time to get work done today. Chris got the day off and we haven't seen each other much. I've really missed him and have been rather frustrated so we need this time together. So I my not get to do anything until tomorrow. We'll see. I still want to play my bass too. I'm getting nice comments on my youtube. I'm always amazed how I can have stuff up on sites for a long time and nothing happens then Boom, it's suddenly popular.

Perhaps today I can get the handles for the chicken coop.

It doesn't matter if they are late. As my boss said to me the other day, it gives you something to look forward to after Christmas!

Glad the pumpkins are doing well!

Yeah I get a bit tired if I talk on the phone for too long. Then again I also draw while I'm on the phone or I get fidgety.

Yeah that's true.

I'm very happy to still be getting pumpkins. I have some friends up north that will like the videos because their growing season is over.

Yeah even if it's fun I get tired after a while.

Glad your pumpkins are doing well! The One Too Many is a neat-looking pumpkin. So it looks like you'll get your Christmas pumpkins after all.
