Crazy January Challenge #5 & Magazine Challenge

Another new start. This is Frank from the Cross Stitch & Needlework 1998 issue. He is done on 10 ct Hickory Heatherfield.
The weather sure is strange here in western NY. We should be having snow. Where is it? A lot of us think we are going to get it overnight, sometime and it's going to just dump 2 feet. I am not crazy about that idea.

Got out of work yesterday and stopped at Office Max so I could buy this year's journal. I have 4 sections. One is TV, movies, celebrities who died. 2: what I cross stitched on for the year.. 3 Books I read or listened to. 4 personal diary. I started this 3 or 4 years ago. I buy a plain hardcover one and then I use a favorite picture from the previous year's calendar. I always buy a Faerie calendar every year so that is what I use. This one has a Jasmine Beckett Griffith picture.

I am reading Discovery of Witched by Deborah Harkness.
Last night I watched:
Live With Kelly
General Hospital
The Vampire Diaries
Grey's Anatomy
Private Practice
I DVRd - The Secret Circle

Thank you everyone for the great comments, I appreciate all of you.

THe Secret Circle what is this about? I haven't heard of this show. Can't wait to see the finished product. This challenge is making me a serial starter. lol

Looking good, Shelleen. I wish you luck with the snow.... nothign here in VA so far. Looks like I'll make it home without getting snowed on. I likethe sound of your diray -- but a question -- does it come with a page for each day and you divide that page in fours or do you just journal and if you need to and/or can, you cover your 4 topics?

Frank looks like he is going to be handsome - LOL!!

My DS in Maine is one of the ones doing the snow dance. He has been part of setting up a national cross country skiing event there I think the first part of Feb. They are worried.
