I have finished up the decorating. Yeah! These pictures are of the kitchen. I'll show some more next time and you can also look at previous years pictures. The years seem to go by so quickly and I sometimes think I won't be in the mood to decorate. ("Didn't we just take this stuff down?") But then I get the boxes out and start going through all these ornaments that we have collected or made in the 33 years we have been together and I'm back in the spirit. I reminisce about when the boys were little and it all comes back. So here I am, excited about making cashew brittle with Eric, shopping with Rick, and watching our grandson open his presents. Life is pretty good, isn't it?
I finally got over the mono and bronchitis I had this fall. Boy, it sure is good to have my energy back! Not soon enough to get the gardens completely cleaned up, but that's OK. I've continued to work on the quilt from the last post, as well as a Christmas gift that I want to show you, but I can't! I also made cards and that little quilted mat in the first picture above. So I guess I'm doing pretty well. Are any of you making gifts or ornaments this year? I'd love to hear about it.
