Weekends

 

Hello! How was your weekend?

Don't you love the look Holly is giving? She is half asleep and half alert to Frodo's rustlings. My weekend was great because I celebrated my birthday over the weekend! I had a lovely time with my family and received some really nice gifts.

My husband bought me a new fountain pen (TWSBI ECO medium nib) and it's divine. I received some journaling supplies and of course more books to read. My sister made us dinner and a delicious apple cake for dessert. I'll be visiting a yarn store this week to supplement my knitting stash.

I also decided to start decorating the house. Yesterday, I managed to put out all the knick knacks. Today I hope to do the little tree. Each year it takes me longer to do the task, but it's fun! 

How was your weekend?

  11. Wishing you a belated Happy Birthday. It looks like you enjoyed your special day. I usually start decorating December 1st. My first item out is my Advent Calenday. Yes, it is getting more difficult each year to get the decorations out and displayed.

  14. Oooh, that box of goodies looks wonderful. My husband gave me a Minka fountain pen about 20 years ago that I adored. Recently, it's been harder to use, I think it needs a thorough soak to clean. I just finished a drawing for a family of their patron saints and learned of St Hermione, who was a healer!
