A Christmas Song Quiz & Giveaway Part 3

Today started out with a bike ride, and then I held my breath as I climbed our 18 foot ladder to finish the trim on the back of the garage. It wouldn't have been quite so bad if the ground the ladder stood on was level, but it's in an alley where there are boulders here and there, weeds that have been matted down, and it appears that while we are gone, someone likes to use our side of the alley to dump their junk. UGH! So, I crept up the ladder and fastened the paint bucket to one of the rungs, and gingerly reached upward to paint the areas that hadn't gotten done two years ago. Long story, but hey I finally got it done! Whew! I didn't even drop the paint bucket, well okay not this morning anyway. Yes, it hit the gravel in front of the garage when I was working there tonight. Almost done, have one easy side to do, yay! Oh and some touch ups as I got yellow on the red. Ooops! Then it's on to the living room. It's bugging me to death to see the scuffs and marks from a renter and our house sitter. Besides, I want to feel like I accomplished something here this year. So tomorrow I will tape and mud cracks and seams, and then texture and paint, whoohoo. I did get some work on creations done as well, it's fun what you can do with a light bulb. I will be sealing this little guy and some other pieces before antiquing. Okay, I'll stop already....here's the next clues......
9. 288 Yuletide hours.
10. Do you perceive the same longitudinal pressure which stimulates my auditory sense organs.
11. The red-suited pa is due in this burg.
12. Stepping on the pad cover.

Oh My!! I have been there and stood on the very tippy-top rung of the ladder and held my breath as I started to paint...praying and hoping I would not fall, all the while, I am shaking like a leaf! I wanted to finish it too. The things we do!

Yay!! I got them all right yesterday. I just popped on to check thing before taking a shower and then off to bed and low-and-behold, you posted for today.

9. 12 Days of Christmas
10. Do you hear what I hear?
11. Santa Clause is coming to town. One of my favorite!
12. Up on the rooftop

I will keep my fingers crossed.

Take some time to relax, you accomplished a lot today.

Oh, and the santa that is shown for the posting, is that made out of the light bulb for the base. If so, very cool, and a very neat way to recycle.

I got to create a bit today. Knock on wood. It is slow, with all the things that need to be done around here, and taking care of my three kiddos.

Hi Tonya, I am adding you for today. Yes, the body on this fella is the light bulb. Very fun to work with. I have another burnt out bulb that will be a hoot to create with. Anyhew, thanks for playing!
