Mostly sunny. Low 18. Highs around 40. North winds 10 to 15 mph. Wind chill readings 4 to 9 in the morning.
I'll have to wear 30 pounds of clothes again today.


TOTD: Do you wrap your presents or use gift bags?
This subject should provide hours of fascinating discussion!
Okay so I'm out of ideas.
Sorry!

We will have another day in the high 50's or low 60's, it will be like the for most of the month.

My mom has a very bad sinus infection and was having trouble breathing. The doctor gave her a breathing treatment and a shot, which he warned might elevate her blood sugar, it did.

TOTD: I like to wrap gifts, but have used gift bags in the past.

Sometimes I wrap the gifts, then put them inside a gift bag.

We're staying seasonal and clear.

TOTD: I wrap them but they all come out looking like the efforts of a blind toddler on acid. You'd think I could do this since I sew and I never ordinarily have any trouble with spatial tasks. :(

I gave up many years ago on attempting to wrap anything.

Like Ginger, though I have a scientific / mathematical mind, when I wrap a package, it looks like a cat got into some paper and tape.

I put gifts in bags or gift boxes.

TOTD: I use gift bags. Years ago, as an Assistant Golf Pro, the head Pro got up the bright idea of wrapping golf merchandise for x-mas. He was like a bull in a china closet so I wound up wrapping all the packages and got pretty good at it.

I'm waiting for Dominos to deliver me an oven baked sandwhich. They are pretty good. Then it's off to work for a night of crazy.

I had windows open, to air things out today. If it is over 40 degrees, I will open windows for an hour or so.
I hate stale heated air.

TOTD: I ROCK at wrapping gifts, if I am in the mood. I buy wrapping and weird cute garnish stuff at yardsales, and use them beside the ribbons that I curl.

I dont give alot of gifts though, so it isnt a day-long project.

Brian: Say "sand".

Stewie: Sand.

Brian: Say "witch".

Stewie: Witch.

Brian: Say "Sandwich".

Stewie: SandwHich.

Brian: Oh, c'mon there's not even an "H" in there!

I wrap and use gift bags. I am still the family "wrapper". My father and brothers still bring me all their gifts to wrap for them. I love wrapping presents.:D

I bet when Linda Numbas wraps presents all of the designs and words match perfect on all the seams!

TOTD: Wrap. I'm anal enough that when I'm done mine look like they were professionally wrapped. :cool: My mom started paying me to wrap all the Christmas presents when I was about 12 - even my own. She'd make sure mine were in odd or unmarked boxes though so I wouldn't know what I was wrapping. :D
