I finished another Christmas present last night. I am finally starting to feel like I am accomplishing some of my Christmas presents. I had felt like OMG its almost Christmas, what am I going to do ... but now I have two done and I don't know how many started. Now things are looking up :)
My new finish is called My scarf has a hole in it. I saw it on a show called Knitty Gritty. I used to love watching that show with its host Vicki Howell. Unfortunately, DIY decided to stop making it and now they put into reruns and show it about 4:00 am or sometime around there. And what can I say if I have had a good night then I am sleeping soundly.
Anyway, I couldn't find the pattern so I made it up. I sure hope this present is received with happiness and joy.

I hope I get to see the Barbra Walters Show tonight. This is when she airs her show called 'What is a Man, What is a Woman'. From the 'tease' they had on 'The View' this morning it will be a very interesting show. She showed a snippet of the show this morning, I hope we can all rap our heads around this idea, that sounds weird in my head, but I don't know how else to say it. I realized today just how controversial this topic is as I watched my good friends fighting over it. My little Sister tried to intervene and it seemed to cause more friction between the ones fighting. I thought about it for a few hours and decided just how I thought was the best way to intervene.
Here is the email I sent to my friends: At the risk of making all of you hate me, I am asking you please stop all arguing. Remember that we are all friends and what it is that makes our club special. We have all been tolerant of each other and each other’s beliefs for about 9 years now. We are a special group of ladies that share our crafts and our lives.
You have helped me personally me through my MS diagnosis acceptance, which celebrated its 10 year anniversary. I privately celebrated it by making the decision that I will walk again. That is unimportant at this moment. My point is that I love each and every one of you and I hope that you do the same. We are so special. Some of you I have met in person and have had the privilege of inviting you into my home. I wish that everybody could come for a visit. I promise not to charge you rent.
Also during this time, we have watched each others children grow up and become young adults, marriage, and even births of grandchildren.
Please don’t throw away all of these wonderful years over something that we cannot change. Keep in mind this couple that has come out into the public eye, have done so bravely. This isn’t the first man to have a child. Also, keep in mind the reason he kept his female reproductive organs is because his wife could not have a child, and he said those organs did not define him. If you want more information just tune your TV to the Barbra Walters show tonight EST 10 PM.
Now at this time, please stop all discussion on this matter and take a few days to think about things.
I have personally witnessed the fear of rejection in watching my in-law come out of the closet. Please show the bravery that she did by, in the fear of total rejection, coming forward.
Anyway, I hope that this gives you pause for thought before you react.
Hugs to all.

As for me, I have made coffee, have my glass of water and taken my vitamins etc. But it is to early for me to eat, I have to be awake and alert, plus my Sweetpie is still in bed. I have also finished one of the scarfs my DD asked me to make and started another one. I can't wait to show her, I think she will be so pleased.
That's it for now, I will post a picture of the scarf as soon as I get it uploaded from my camera.
Y'all have a great day now, ya hear.

Now regarding the election and all the stuff that goes into it goes into the discussions, the press etc. I am beginning to think that the press has a lot to do with racism in America. They kept on bringing racism into the election. I proudly say that I am an American, my ancestors came from Ireland, Scotland, Germany and they married Cherokee and Choctaw. That is what makes America, we are the melting pot, we are all equal and all of us have a voice and the right to free speech. I will proudly say that I voted for President-Elect Obama. I pray that he and his family can stay healthy and help America come back from the economic and environmental disaster.
I do know that President-Elect Obama cannot fix it alone, as with the election it takes all of us to come together as one people. I believe that the election proved that everyone is able to rise as high as desired. You are only held back by your lack of trying, desire or education.
