So you were all hugging through the weekend? I do love to do that, so all come here for a huge :hug: :heart:

Headache is in the background Rwhen, today used the first new lens and so far so good :yippie: apart from the other happenings at work, but am working hard to get those straight. Feel like a regular Drieske P.I. at times :D

Nice advice Rose
For all of those who find this time of year hectic, try to take everything one moment at a time.

I have the feeling that everyone is so much busier than years back. Or is that just my imagination? Running, rushing, stressing. We need more holidays people, more holidays I tell ya!!

Love being here with you all :love:

PS go go goooo Vana, you will make it!

Speaking of that, I happened to come home from a store where I was getting something to have for lunch, and I found one of those Charlie Brown trees there, a replica from the special. I'll have to see how much money I have and go get it. :D

I'm doing all right, just cold. It's FREEZING out there. It's 18 F now, and getting colder. Had to fight off a polar bear to get into my apartment.

I couldn't resist it. Here's Enya singing Silent Night, albeit in Irish:

Alright ALRIGHT, now I want to know what a Charlie Brown Tree is? Is that a Christmas tree with the white Peanut dog on top of it, or underneath it? WHAT? :shock:

This is a 'Charlie Brown' tree.. a forlorn looking thing.. with few branches & fewer needles that can barely hold an ornament.

I love that version by Enya. She's got an elvish voice if anyone.

Vana and Heliona, I'm sorry for your bad days. :hug: :hug: to both of you. Although, I think that your main squeezes will give you the best hugs.

I spent this day at a meeting at an airport hotel, and on my way home, had to freeze first on the bus stop and then on the train station, although our temperatures weren't even close to what Scribbles has to suffer. I'm SO going to the sauna this evening, maybe I'll thaw there!

CR, same here. I got the picture to show by right-clicking it and copy-pasting its URL into the address bar of a new tab.

Yes, that's very much like Charlie Brown always had.

*works with Drieske to tame that Polar Bear for CR*

We just fed it warm milk. :D

Hiya Drieske, glad to read that the headaches are better for you. :hug: Did you get any snow yet over on your piece of real estate? Finally we have warmed up, but our horrid cold is now going towards Rose and CR. *hugs Drieske tightly* Better? :D

LOL, my tree isn't that poor looking, it has good branches on it, it is just a miniature version of a big tree. I love the smell.

Enya singing Silent Night, oh what a joy that is. I LOVE her voice. :D Thank you CR.

Vanadarlin', I will look for you on Wednesday, hope you weren't too late for work. :hug:

Rose I also like Oh Come Emmanuel, lovely song. :D


Edited: Rowan, jump in that sauna and get warmed!!!!! *turns on heating blanket*

I can't see the picture Rose put up either and I did copy to a new browser, it still didn't come up for me. :D

My day was much better today, thanks. :) I got the desk put together, thanks to getting some screws that fit. And I did lots of shopping - I got tinsel and presents and baubles. :D

CR, see, I have a friend called Robin who is a guy. Generally if it is a girl, then it's spelled with a "y" isn't it? Robyn? At least, that's my experience. :)

Oh, Rowan, I got your card! :yippie:

It is slow today. Probably because I'm off today. If I was away at work, I'd come back to four pages of posts.

I got me one of those Charlie Brown trees and have it on my dining room table. It's so cute, though so forlorn.

Rwhen if you don't get my card by Wednesday please let me know. I wonder if I somehow missed your in trying so hard to remember it. You aren't on the lists that I used for my cards. It will be now though.

Okay Vanadarlin', a sent something to you and Guru yesterday, should be there in about a week. :hug:

CR, I feel that way sometimes too, that when I have time to post, no one else is around. But I don't really think that, I jut think people have things to do, especially this time of the year. With you AND Vanadarlin' gone today, well good thing I have plenty of work to do. :D

I love all the Christmas songs that were listed here, and the Chipmonk Song. :D:D:D

Sil, I didn't know that about you. Meaning the ring distinction. I might have the title for "as long as you were here it took you a long time to get that first ring, why did you spam your way to the second?" award. :P :D

I don't think I have a favorite, but usually when asked I say The Peace Carol.

the first time I heard it was on my John Denver and the Muppets tape (now CD...I overplayed the tape!). Many of the renditions they do on that album are very nice...Rowlf and John singing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is an absolute favorite, but their version of The Peace Carol I just absolutely love, I've never heard a better version.
