I am getting ready for the holidays but I seem to be behind this year. I have been busy preparing; baking decorating, shopping, wrapping, shipping packages etc. It all takes so much time.
News on the home front:
D#1 got her driver’s license on Saturday. She is already making her way across the city to school. It is going to seem really strange not driving her to and from the bus (15 minutes there).
D#2 will be appearing in the Wizard of Oz production that is touring across North America. They are performing here in Calgary, Dec 28-Jan 2. She will be one of the 12 Munchkins.
S#1 will be home next week from university. I am looking forward to having him in the house again. He is looking forward to home cooked meals.
I have made two quilts in two weeks. I am exhausted but was so worth it. My brother is going through some issues and since I don’t live near him to give him a hug I thought one of my quilts might help. I used a Jelly Roll for the first time as well as some other fabric from my stash.
Every year my husband’s department supports a family in need. This year a silent auction was organized to help raise funds to buy the family some grocery gift cards etc. I donated this wall hanging. I like it so much I might have to make myself one.
I have just returned from the dentist and half my mouth is frozen. I am trying to eat some porridge without it running down my face. I hope wherever you are, your preparations for the holidays are coming along well.
