Yup.. shopping for supplies I will need for my February, and spring cards. Time to think ahead. On my list of places to go was a big art supply store in a major shopping mall. I did not get there early, so…………. I was there at a time when the parking lot was wall to wall vehicles and shoppers were in possibly every walking space in the halls between the stores.
This is only November. Imagine in the States where they still have Thanksgiving to go, before they are hit with the Xmas shopping frenzy. All around me I heard people talking about their lists, and how far they had gotten, and what was left to look for.
Penguins are big this year. I know the above is a Puffin, he’s a cutie, thought I’d give him some “press” =^_^= So many of the clothing stores, had some kind of sweater with a penguin on it. You will get to see a lot of them if you are out looking around. The other thing being marketed is the Ugly Sweater… These are new .. is the whole idea of the “ugly sweater” not to come up with a vintage one from days gone by??? Anybody?
Just so you know, this is what is coming, or so we are being told. In preparation for such an event, I have begun to stock up, for days of “nesting” Which brings me back to my card making. =^_^= How well are you prepared for the next couple of months. If you are in a climate with 4 seasons, and winter is ahead, do you have your snow tires yet? Are they on the car/truck?
While I made my way from one shopping location to another, via the highways, (stayed away from the downtown area, Santa was having his parade today) I mumbled to myself that it was time, I took week-ends off from going out and about. from now on, it will only get busier.

I got a lot done, and best of all, I had a lot of time when waiting at lights, and traffic slow downs to think about how much I will enjoy my extra hours of “nesting” once my chores are done.
