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!
