Merry Christmas! I hope you had a wonderful weekend with people who bring you joy and happiness. I've been filling my days with visiting family and day outings. Yesterday, my husband and I enjoyed a quiet day at home. The day was sprinkled with phone calls to and from family who live far away. Thank goodness for the person who invented cell phones and unlimited calling. I remember when we were first married and having phone bills up to $400 dollars (yikes!).

Last Thursday, my husband and I went to the art museum to see the nativity scene and some exhibits then headed off to lunch. I love the museum outings immensely - they spark inspiration and creativity.

Santa Claus gifted me new paints! How did he know? I also received yarn and books. He is just a good gift giver. And my 2023 is going to be a wonderful year.

Our son, daughter in law and grandson  are arriving later this week. I'm looking forward to seeing them and being with them. We will do another round of visiting family, eating all the holiday foods and snuggling that BABY. 

How was your weekend?


  1. Sounds like you had a nice Christmas and have some good times planned for the coming days. The nativity display at the museum looks great. I would enjoy seeing that tool. I hope you have a good week and a Happy New Year!

  2. It looks like you had an incredible day! That museum though... wow!

  3. There are some lovely displays at the art museum! I'm glad you had a nice Christmas, with more fun coming!

  4. Stephen came up from Virginia and we had a wonderful, quiet day watching football and eating good food.

    Your museum pictures are beautiful! It's nice to be so close to them.

  5. Sounds like a wonderful weekend. Enjoy your time with your grandson x

  6. Oh boy, it's always fun when the kids and grandchild come for a visit. What a beautiful museum. Enjoy the week.

  7. Thankfully it started to rain on Christmas Eve and melted all the ice that made getting around on Friday impossible. That made getting to our daughter's house on Christmas possible as she lives straight up a huge hill. There was a video on KOMO's news of a car sliding and twirling down part of that hill. It's even scary when it's sunny and dry!

  8. Yarn and paints...the gifts that allow you to be creative! The BEST!!
