Christmas Wrap











Ho ho ho!  Did you have a good holiday?  This week was crazy busy for me since most of my days are slow and easy.  We had a full house all week with both kids here.  Yesterday my daughter and son in law went home and today my son and his girlfriend are going to her parent's house for more celebrating.

Christmas Eve dinner was made by my daughter as seen in my photos.  She worked really hard all day and the dinner was delicious.  Between Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Day dinner, I have enough leftovers for over a week (no cooking!).

I have never been so grateful for the new dishwasher which I ran twice a day and still managed to have pots and pans to do by hand.  The new fridge also didn't disappoint.  I stuffed it full and still had room.

We sat around talking and watching Christmas movies, did a puzzle in ONE day, ate more cookies than we should have and did daily walks down the dirt road.

Being the hostess did not leave me with much knitting time or reading time.  Today I'll be putting bedrooms back together and laundering all the sheets and towels.  I am also going to the gym to get back into my routine.  I started a new cowl for me from some lovely yarn gifted to me by a dear knitting friend.  Once my chores are done I'll be crafting a knitting wish list and a reading wish list for 2020.

I enjoyed having my family here and being with them.  I am ready for a quiet week!

  5. Your Christmas sounds lovely. Isn't it fun to have grown children who like to cook? Enjoy the rest of these days. The yarn looks bright and cheery.

  6. Sounds like a pretty great Christmas. Like you, I am looking forward to getting back to my normal routine. Our son has been here for 10 days and I love having him here, but we having been doing a lot more running around and much bigger meal prep. Ahhhhhhhhhh....the quiet days of January are right around the corner.

  10. Goodness! That bread looks delicious! Just from looking at the photo of your kitchen I knew you'd either had a wonderful or a horrible Christmas. LOL Your counter tops are normally spotless and bare, but that sure wasn't the case in the photo! Looks like y'all definitely ate well. :)

  12. It sounds like it was all perfect! I know it is hard when they all leave, feels a bit of your heart is missing! Happy reorganizing and happy knitting.

  14. That is so much food and fun!!! Glad you had a wonderful one. I did not get any knitting done a few days in the past week. It is good to be back to the needles, but I sobbed when everyone left. MOVE BACK is my motto for 2020. But not for Zach, he's loving his Mexico
