Another bell that looks like an acorn. I'm hoping things will change tomorrow. I didn't actually notice when I bought it, because I was looking at the pretty design, it says that the chocolates get bigger the nearer you get to Christmas. So that's an interesting twist. Hopefully it'll be a different design to report otherwise this whole thing is going to get pretty stale.
The dog got a stripy twisty bone just like before but this one was green. Now she's associating my coming downstairs
A Christmas tree again. That's kind of boring but I'll get over it
Yuki got a red and white knot bone. Very fun.
In other news. Still not making cards yet. Blanket needs another 10 patches made to even it out. Custard went down very well. Found some great looking cookie recipes online. If I have time I might bake up a storm for Christmas. Probably won't though. Don't exactly have any decorations up yet except for those tissue balls I made. It's gold tissue paper. It's shiny.

It's kind of fun to guess what the minimalist shapes are and the dog's calendar is randomly spaced so I get to hunt for the right day on hers.

I know I'm too old for it but I kind of missed the excitement of opening it and blogging my findings. I can't promise a daily update. I'd feel like I'm hogging the blog page. We'll see how we go.
So. I have a calendar. Guess what. So does the dog. Last year we got her one with Mini Markies. There was nothing to blog about though because they
