LTRTCWSA - Leisurely Turtle Race To Christmas With Squirrels Allowed - 2013 Race Results

For the past couple of years -

LindaL and I have played a little game -

We call it our -

Leisurely Race To Christmas With Squirrels Allowed -

LRTCWSA for short - ;))

Instead of waiting until the last minute to begin our Christmas gift making -

We start the day after Christmas -

Work on Christmas stuff all year long -

At a L-E-I-S-U-R-E-L-Y pace -

And then declare the Race a "tie" on November 30 of the next year - ;))

Whatever gets done by then -

Gets done by then - ;))

We work on Christmas gifts throughout the year -

No stress - no pressure -

Just a head start on everybody else -

Especially those who don’t start until AFTER Thanksgiving -

And we get to enjoy Christmas all year long - ;))

We started the 2013 Race on the day AFTER Christmas last year -

And since today is November 30 -

I hereby declare the -

Leisurely Race To Christmas With Squirrels Allowed - 2013

A TIE!! - ;))

Whatever we didn’t finish -

Will automatically carry over to next year’s Race - ;))

We will begin our -

Leisurely Race To Christmas With Squirrels Allowed - 2014 -

On the day AFTER Christmas -

And end on November 30, 2014 - ;))

Be sure to join us!! - ;))

It’s FUN!! - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. So what is the deal with "Squirrels" ???????

    1. "Squirrels" are what I call distractions - new projects - and shiny objects - ;))

      I got it from the movie "UP" - ;))

      In the movie - the dog - whose name is "DUG" - would get distracted by a squirrel - and shout out "SQUIRREL". He was always getting distracted and always shouting out "SQUIRREL" - ;))

      So when I get distracted - which is quite often - I call the them "SQUIRRELS". And I see SQUIRRELS everywhere - so we HAD to allow for them in our little race - ;)) Do a search on my blog for "squirrel" - you'll see - ;))

  2. You need to push me through the year :-) I know there are blogs who work on something for Christmas on a certain day every month - maybe I should get involved, but would probably fall by the wayside.... So what did you finish?

    1. NO pushing or pulling is allowed!! NO stress - NO pressure!! - ;))

      And define "finish" - haha - ;)) If you define it as "quilted and ready to give" - I'm not sure that I "finished" anything this year. Linda did, of course, she always does. But whether or not we "finish" anything is irrelevant - the rules don't say that you have to FINISH anything - just "play with Christmas stuff" during the year and not wait until after Thanksgiving like everyone else - ;))

  3. Gotta say, that I love your approach to this! Declare a tie between you two. I still have half of these tree skirt #3 to go if any of that counts towards my approach to this "contest"

    1. ANYTHING Christmas related counts!! - And if you don't finish it by November 30 - you can keep working on it OR carry it over to the next year - it doesn't matter. The "Race" will always be a "tie" no matter how many "Racers" we have - ;)) The whole point is to NOT wait until after Thanksgiving to play with our Christmas stuff!! It is so much fun and so much less stressful to pull out something - in January or February or April or any other month - that is Christmas related - and work on it at a L-E-I-S-U-R-E-L-Y pace. We "enter" whatever it is in the "Race" - and get to enjoy Christmas all year long - ;))


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
