What is Rudy Day ? .....

I've always enjoyed Christmas. The decorations, the flurry and, of course, the real meaning but always felt let down on December 26. It was all over in a flash. All the planning and doing was gone in a minute. Finally I found the OC ...not the tv show but the Organized Christmas website which led to the Magical Holiday Home Forum. I don't even know how I found it but I did. And they had this wonderful thing called Rudolph Day....Rudy Day to most of us.....that lets you think, plan, dream about Christmas at least once a month on the 25th. And the best thing was I found more people out there just like me ! Crazy about all things Christmas. Well, almost obsessive. But to my family and friends that think I'm nuts half the time, I just want you to know there is no cure for it so don't try to find one. I wouldn't want the cure if you could find one anyway.

Rudy Day in June.....What happened to May?

May Rudy Day was on Memorial Day. I remember I was busy that day but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. Must have been a "senior" moment!

I had to work today but that didn't stop me from having a mini Rudy Day. I googled for free Christmas movies on-line and hit the motherload (sorry, don't have the website saved here at the house). I watched the "Grinch", "Frosty", an old Sherlock Holmes movie set during Christmas, Bing and Bowie's famous duet of Drummer Boy, Karen Carpenter's "Merry Christmas, darling" among other clips and shows.

I had hot chocolate at work that was oh, so yummy. I work with all boys and it is so cold in there.

I also FINALLY put all my digital Christmas pictures from this past year in the same place. I have a habit of having copies of everything everywhere. So I organized them by year and copied 2008 to my flash drive. I need to take them to get prints made to put in my notebook.

This is what I had scheduled for this month from last year's TO DO list. Since it is going to be so hot here this weekend, I think I will get the prints made tomorrow and work on the notebook and craft ideas on Saturday.

June is Decorating Month
*go through each room's pictures from last year and see what's needed for each room
*update decorating section of the Christmas notebook
*make shopping list for crafts and room decorations

Hope you all had a great Rudy's Day and hopefully it is spilling over to this weekend!

You have got to be the most organized Christmas planner! I wondered about last month but didn't say anything. November will be here and I'll wish I had a bit of planning!! OH...Hallmark was putting out their Christmas ornament display today too!

I don't remember seeing you planner before - cute!

Now, what I want to know is how you managed to watch the movies at work?!
Is that the whole dual computer thing?

I listened to My Merry Christmas Radio all day:)

I love the idea of the little word signs on the evergreen. I think a wreath like that would be terrific; thanks for the idea.
