So far we still have no snow to speak of, but it is bone chillingly cold here today.
We ran out early to do a few errands, and were glad to get back home.
I haven't done much decorating, but I have things looking the way I want. I have used a small evergreen in the living room, and decorated it with things made for me by friends and children through the years. Including a bird from the late and much missed Daisy Lupin, along with a small glass angel and a star also from her.
A hand sewn church from Janet @ Me and My Art. and another colourful hand sewn bird from Miss*Robyn, a ceramic cross from Kai, and a lacy angel from Susie Q. All dear blogging friends. Also small framed photos of my grands as babies...you get the idea.
In the family room I have used a small and delightfully tacky silver tree, decorated with shiny chocolate, white frosted and pink shiny baubles. Instead of an angel it has a chocolate coloured feathered hummingbird.
The gifts are all bought and wrapped, but I still haven't baked anything. Next week two of my grand daughters are coming for the day, and we will make cookies together. The little angel on this photo is Madison, our youngest grand daughter, our son's child. Isn't she sweet...even with her lunch all over her face!
She spent a Saturday with me, while the rest of the family went to a hockey game. If you enlarge the photo you will see some of the cheeky looks I got while trying to take her picture. She was watching Frosty the Snowman, and was really enjoying it. She will be two in March.
My sister came for the weekend, and we had great fun. We shopped until I almost dropped (Carol has more staying power than me). Ask me why I wore heels to go shopping for the day? I wish I knew. I ended up buying a pair of soft suede flat boots to walk around in, and oh! the relief.
I have to finally admit... it is better to feel good than to look good...yes! I have reached that age.
