How was your weekend? Are you ready for Christmas?? Getting there? I am amazed we are half way through advent. Friday night was quiet and at home, doing some knitting and relaxing.
Saturday was more of the same. I assessed the presents and what is left to arrive on my doorstep. I might have to get "one" more gift. Maybe. For years I've been the kind of person that is done shopping at least one week or sometimes two weeks before Christmas. I don't like crowds of people or that frantic feeling of picking something. I like to mull it over, take my time.
Anyways, back to my Saturday, we went out to shop for my husband's secretaries and then a dinner out. Both activities, gift giving and eating were fun. Speaking of gift giving....today was our knitting group's gift exchange. Let's just say that exchanging with like minded people is fibery fun. I'm still looking over my gifts and sighing with happiness. So much goodness, I'm lucky to have these women as my close friends and to share a beloved hobby.
On a side note, I have searched high and low for a "first Christmas" ornament for the newlyweds. Finally this past week I found one and it's not breakable! A must for flying home in a suitcase and lasting for many many happily married years. I look at my first Christmas ornament that my mother gave me 28 YEARS ago EEP.
That third photo is me be-sequined by my grandmother as a gift for Christmas when I was ungrateful and wished it was a toy instead. Now I'm grateful! I love that ornament and the time she took to make it for me. The last photo are ornaments of my kids when they each were in second grade. Their teacher made them for us moms and dads. Another thoughtful gift and I am very very careful to not break them...I wish they weren't fragile.
How was your weekend? Good?
