Hello! Anyone still there? Or are you busy shopping, wrapping and baking? Maybe you are finished with all of that and sipping on a mug of hot chocolate listening to nice music in front of a cozy fire.
This Christmas is approaching faster than any other Christmas in recent memory and I still have much to do. But that's okay. Really. Everything that is important always manages to get done and I am not going to stress about anything. Never mind that the cards are still to be sent, gifts still need to be bought and wrapped. But, the trees are up and the house is as decorated as it's going to be.
I love Christmas! It is a most special season as we celebrate our Savior's birth.
Our daughter is mostly moved into her new home. She is so excited and while there are still a few things to tweak, the main things are moved in and done. Drapes, curtains and such are still to be chosen. She's already rearranged the living room furniture. The drapes/curtains will be pondered while she decides on the right colors.
I got out my sewing machine, which has been in storage for years, to make her a couple of panels for her bathroom window. It is over the tub so she bought a fabric shower curtain that can be used for a liner, so I cut out the panels and stitched up the sides and made a pocket for the tension rod to go through.
I found out that sewing is like riding a bicycle. You never forget! I got out the instruction book in case I'd forgotten how to thread the machine, but didn't need it.
BG has been under the weather the past few days and now I feel like I'm catching what he has. That might hinder my plans somewhat. I want to go to the Amish country to get some Christmas candy and a couple of pies for Christmas. It's a fun little side trip that I can make on my way to CoMo where I'll do my shopping.
I've decided to change my menu this year. Me, who never wavers from tradition! Will the earth stop turning? Lol! Instead of another turkey dinner...wasn't it just a few days ago that we had one of those?...I am planning to get a brisket and fixing a potato dish with a garden salad and rolls. Maybe another dish or two as well and that will be plenty.
What is on your menu this Christmas? Are you much further along in your preparations than I am? Wishing you the very best this beautiful season! Take care, stay warm and stay well!
Happy Thursday to you!
