  1. I love that song. Now the Christmas Shoes... I have to change the station every time it comes on!
  2. I'm so sorry. Prayers for the family.
  3. https://www.fish-kiss.com/ State dish towels, mugs, and more
  4. Great list! I've done lots of these. They guys get jerky every year. Play silks. When dd was little, I went to the fabric store and bought a yard and a half of two bright colored shiny satin type fabrics like the evening gowns from the 30s that draped nicely and had a good weight to them. She tied them around herself in different dress styles for years playing dress up. One of her favorite things!
  5. Everyone has a food item I never buy except for the stockings: Jif peanut butter, Pop Tarts, Fruit Loops. Used to buy razors, shave cream, deodorant, and other toiletries. When I was a kid we got those little boxes of raisins.

  6. This is beautiful for someone into art! https://www.etsy.com/listing/153192918/wood-pencil-holder-desk-accessory-5th?ref=finds_l&external=0&frs=1
  7. A tactile blanket sounds good, too! Might have to be homemade to get the different textures tho.
  8. My dad would drive my mom nuts using it all the time! lol
  9. Yesterday I had the thought that it's a good year for us to remember those who don't get out or don't get company especially, so they know they're not forgotten. To brighten their day and in turn, ours. I vote yes on giving goodies.
  10. We eat out several times a week and haven't had sickness near us yet. Trying to help these small businesses stay alive.
  11. World Market looks like a great place to 'wander' online for stocking stuffers. I'm used to picking items that I see wandering through various stores, but now I really online hit Wmart and the grocery stores. Anyone want to share other fun stores where I could shop for unique items for stockings??
  12. Ran across this searching for particular types of lit titles. Thought someone might like it. https://www.literacious.com/2020/06/23/20-titles-for-young-gamers-summer-reading-2020/ Also has read aloud list to go with various games. For what it's worth...
  13. I'll list as I think of things. I know I had a few things last year. Dad's the hard one at 93. Sardines, sugar free candy, word puzzle books
  14. I know three! Thanks for this thread. Music is so good for the soul. My favorite pick me up CD is Lifer by Mercy Me. . Christian. So upbeat and uplifting when I'm down.
  15. This. And does he have regular chores? Especially if you can find some heavier ones- chopping wood, trash and recycing, or some kind of 'manly' work. Not that he shouldn't have regular;y scheduled household chores, too. Am and pm. I think the taking charge of a meal a week is a great one. He'll have to feed himself someday. Now's a great time to learn. Several times, I took the television away years ago. You had to earn time reading (not school)books and get your chores done. You could do something similar if necessary. Saying I'm bored just gets extra chores, so he'll find some
  16. Please share what you're doing for the stockings! I just started doing them for my folks last year, and they love them, too. I need ideas, Love the Advent calendars, too! I was going to suggest a Christmas centerpiece. I got one years ago and enjoyed it. I don't think you could go wrong with fruit...
  17. I've always been a music person. Any country or christian artists from Canada I might also know?
  18. So, wintermom, are you going to tell us where they're all from??
  19. Cut and paste the list below and add in: a) have you heard of this artist, b) where do you think they are from, and c) when/how did you learn this. P.S. (They are not all from Canada.) - Gordon Lightfoot, If you could read my mind, Cotton Jenny **Loved his music! Yes, knew he was Canadian. - Bryan Adams, Summer of '69 ** Loved his music, too. Did not know - Kim Mitchell, Patio Lanterns - Trooper, Boys in the Bright, White Sports Car - Rush, -e Chris De Burgh, Lady in Red, A Spaceman Came Travelling ** Know, but don't know where he's from - Leonard
  20. I make these for work every couple months for a 7 am meeting. Never thought of freezing them! Like that idea. I'm up early to put them together and bake before the meeting now!
  21. The stockings are just getting so hard as the kids get older! I hope you'll share your best ideas.
  22. I just replaced my Tupperware measuring spoons with some I found at Home Goods. Love the new ones, and it was in the back of my mind that old Tupperware items weren't really safe items anymore. BPA or such...
