This is our Christmas morning before the opening of gifts. The two gift bags on the table contained food so of course they had to be placed where our dear Frodo would not find them. The larger gift was for him.....treats, yum! Each year the presents get a little smaller because everyone is all grown up now. This year we were reminiscing (this word looks like it should be spelled a different way) about putting together barbie houses and hot wheel garages. It would take hours but it was fun. Yesterday we listened to the kids new CDs instead of assembling toys.
I think in the next couple of weeks I will be quite entertained with three new cookbooks, many novels, and a new photo editing software. The software will probably stretch my learning abilities. The cookbooks are whole food based. The one is dairy free, gluten free, and egg free. I have two relatives who have celiac disease and I always have a tough time with dairy so I thought it would be fun exploring some new menus.
I received The Impossible Puzzle (jigsaw) from my daughter and so far it is impossible. I have a feeling I will invest more time with this than with the new photo software, then again maybe not. My son gave me a hard sudoku book which is the only number puzzle I like.
I hope all of you had a great Christmas weekend. Just think in a week we will be celebrating a new year! Time flies when you are having fun. Oh, I have been mulling over what I would love to knit in the coming weeks. Stay tuned..
