|do you see the deer?|
This weekend was full of extraordinary goodness. Our son is home for his Thanksgiving break from Penn State, more than likely the last one since he is graduating and applying for professor jobs (praying he is close by!!). We won't know until early to mid spring if he has job interviews or offers.
I've been working on my to do list for the Thanksgiving event. Everyday I've listed something to do so that I get it all done in a timely manner.
The sunrises have been brilliant and beautiful. I love waking up and taking Frodo out in the early morning light and witnessing nature.
Speaking of nature, it SNOWED. Yes! I don't think it was even in the forecast and we got about 2 inches of beautiful snow. It usually snows around my birthday, so I consider this snowfall a belated birthday present from Mother Nature.
I decorated the house for Christmas, except for the tree. I will put that up next weekend. I strategically decided what would be safe with a two year old inquisitive cat. Sunday morning, I found the farm animals of the Nativity scene on the floor instead of the low shelf I placed them on. Holly delights me in what she decides is a toy or not.
I did not put out anything precious, nor did I put out anything that my mother created. My mother died in 1998 and I treasure all of those handmade gifts she made for me. I know one day Holly will be an 'older' cat' (she is already settling down so much!) and I can put out all of the heirlooms on future Christmases.
How was your weekend?
