Christmas Block Project isn't gonna make it!

Does anyone else feel like I do - that December should just have MORE days???

I REALLY wanted to have my "block" project finished - but I've had to face realty - and after whining for a bit -I realized, it's just not gonna happen this year!!
I did only have a few white blocks to stitch - but my noodle-head brain forgot about all the heart blocks and all the green blocks!!! ARGH!
With any good fortune, I'll be able to finish this in the New Year and will be enjoying it next Christmas!!!

Things are just so hectic around here right now - so much to do - it's just go, go, go!!!!!

Care to join me in hoping for a quiet 2007???

Hugs for the harried,

Ian, Tea-Tsu and Santa


OK - so I've always been one of those who had a hearty laugh at those folks who took their fur-baby's to see "Santa" - but I just COULDN'T resist!!!!!!! In my defense, $5 of the $8 went to our local animal shelter... and for that - we got 2 photos and a cute ceramic frame...I know, I know, silly, silly, silly!!!
Tea-Tsu has been the cutest little "naughty" girl lately. She hasn't bothered any of our Christmas things - pkgs, tree, lights, etc. However, we have a collection of stuffed pandas that always sit around the bottom of one of our trees every year. Well.....she just hates those pandas being under the tree!! She'll drag every one of them out - not hurt them at all - just drag them (most are bigger than she is!) and will re-decorate our family room with them!! She's fine with them being around the family room - but hates them being under the tree!!! We just can't help laughing at her - she is just SO determined!
She also has taken quite a fancy to a "Santa Hat" that we have decorating one of our statues. The statue is on one of the lower shelves of a bookcase and she just hates that hat being on the statue. Again, she's very gentle - but she just doesn't want that hat being where it is. She likes it, again, on the family room floor. Go figure!!! :)
She has just been such a fun addition to our lives - can't tell that we love her at all, can you?? :)

Never say never!!! (as in the dog visiting Santa!!) :)

Chemistry is SOOOO cool!!!!



This is a pic of one of our homeschool chemistry projects. We layered corn syrup, vegetable oil, water, and alcohol and tinted each layer a different color. Due to the density of the different "ingredients" - the layers separated. It was SO neat! After this, we dropped different objects into the glass and saw which layer the object would sink to. We discussed viscosity and properties. Next, we're going to be studying polymers - i./e. making "slime".
Yea - nothing's blown up YET!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Hug your favorite scientist!!
