I was thinking the same thing! Started day early baking cookies. They won't get decorated till weekend as I need to get 4 cakes baked tomorrow, wrap gifts and package up some cookies for monthly get-together with coworkers.

Neat! I groom our little one all of the time. Bought a mustache clipper on sale at Costco, boy does it do a good job on her fine hair on her feet. Which seems to grow like weeds.

Well I guess my projects aren't over yet. I decided to make another picture frame. I like this one better than the first. I made it with this lighthouse photo in mind but I'm not sure the photo looks as good in this frame as I was hoping. Might have to figure out something else to put in it.

My sister in law just gave me her fish. 3 of those glow fish, and a rather large pleco! That ones almost a foot long. Plus tank, all the food, air pump, filter, etc. I’ll be driving it home, setting it all up, and then comes the adjusting them slowly to my well water. I’ll add about 20% of well water when we get there, then add as needed to top off the tank, until I can switch them to a bigger tank. And then I’ll be adding more to make a tropical tank.

Fish made it safe. I’ll set tank up tomorrow, I’m exhausted, and I don’t want to move them more till I can at least clean that tank. But I’m plotting on pulling a tank that’s bigger from outside instead, and setting it up right. Plants, filtration, etc. the pleco is between 6-7 inches long.

That's some amount of work @addy1, you definitely deserve Christmas day off with a hot cooked dinner. Last week I was at my youngest school and the teacher asked if I would mind doing a nature project for the class that the kids could benefit from. The classroom has no windows and in my opinion looks pretty dismal, but the best part is a water feature is allowed, it just can't be massive. So I do have a grow light that I used for seedlings that I can use, but if anyone has any ideas they would like to share I'm all ears. The age group of the children is eight, and the idea is to make the classroom more attractive using nature and not mass produced products, and also educate and hopefully inspire a love of nature that the kids will keep in the future. I really do hope some of you who read this will have ideas and share, as I feel this is an important opportunity to teach a tiny portion of our future generation the value of nature. Thanks
Tara, how about an aquarium turned into a terrarium? 10-20 gal size or larger. Terrariums are a little bit of nature in a glass box. I grow lots of them. You can use the grow light for it. Or even a Paludarium which is part terrarium and part aquarium. with a few small fish or a frog or salamander? The kids would love it! You may even get a local pet shop to donate a tank and more when they hear it is for a local school.

I got three of the important gifts wrapped. Dads cowboy hat, Tyler’s camera, and Austin’s new boots. I’m evil, dads hat is nestled in a crap ton of Christmas garland, Austin’s boots have the strings pulled and wrapped separate, and that box is wrapped inside a second wrapped box. Then I used garland to fill the void, and did the same double boxing with garland fill for Tyler! As for my husband, I’ll hide his cooking apron under that decorative holiday fill paper stuff, with a bottle of Disorono all pretty on top! Then play mad when he tosses the box aside. That’ll be subtle evil compared to the overt evil I’m being to dad!
As for the rest of the family, I’m paying a bill for my mom, giving my sister a gift card, Austin’s soon to be wife will probably get something small, and I’ll find something for the roommate. I’m ready for her to move. So maybe packing tape? Lol. She refuses to clean up her mess, isn’t doing her therapy for her ptsd she was supposed to be doing, and let’s her “ service dog” bark when folks are sleeping.
