There are some perks to not being able to sleep and getting up early and having a cup of tea....
.... on the day that Paul got up very early (after going to be very late) to work on painting his friend's car:

Shutterfly and had this caption put on it. Needless to say, I re-ordered, and got my grammar correct. Good thing I was planning ahead.
Meanwhile, I've got Christmas-baking-on-the-brain. I found this recipe for Campfire Bars on the Cookies and Cups blog and was dying to make it so I went out and got the ingredients that day.

Also finished this, which you aren't getting to see until it's given, but I thought you'd want to know it was done:
I was helping a knitting student at the yarn shop this past weekend and telling her about the lost project. She said the St. Anthony prayer for me to help me find it. Then she said, "Actually, we are supposed to say it together, so it will really work." So I, being not very religious, had to be taught the words, and then we said it together. Then she said, "Ok, if you find it you have to give me a dollar. I'm match it and then give it to my mother, who will match mine, and then donate it to her church." Sounded good to me. I'm optimistic.
