Speaking of Piper, I have another new picture today. She was able to go see Santa Claus yesterday. Mandy had to make the appointment three weeks in advance. You can tell by the picture that it was a socially distanced visit. No sitting on Santa‘s lap this year! How strange things are, but the kids seem to adapt pretty well. Mandy said they also had a gift bag and a scavenger hunt. You can see Piper took one of her babies to meet Santa too. She does love her babies.
Today’s Advent stocking.
I thought I would take a photo of the Christmas cards hanging up. But I couldn’t get them all in one picture so here is the first half...
and here are the rest of them.
You get a pretty good view of my kitchen here too. On the far right is where we have our Keurig and the coffee pods. In that tall container are teabags and the smaller one on the left has hot cocoa.
I finished a baby blanket about 10:30 tonight, but it was way too dark to take a photo of it. I’ll try to get one tomorrow even though it is supposed to rain all day. I didn’t make the whole blanket today. I had it about half done before I started on all of the Christmas things, so I just finished it up today.
Neal and Jenny stopped by today with a “doorstep delivery.” She had made pumpkin rolls and bought us a plateful. She makes the best pumpkin rolls. We also exchanged our Christmas presents. I had given our gifts to them last Sunday at the birthday parade and they brought ours today. Even though it’s not the same as a real visit, it’s so good to see other peoples faces.
I had wanted to go outside tonight and see if I could see the Star of Bethlehem. It is supposed to be the brightest tonight and tomorrow night about 1:30 in the morning our time, but it’s already raining so I don’t think there’s much chance of seeing it tonight. I’m hopeful for tomorrow night. So, it’s late and I’m off to bed. But first I have to tell you a story. The funniest thing happened last night during the night. I woke up in the middle of the night thinking of something very important that I needed to tell Sam at the “Self-sufficient Sam” blog on my side bar. I remember thinking at the time that I should probably write it down because I would forget to tell her by today and sure enough, for the life of me, I cannot remember what was so important! I hope I’m not the only one that does these things. Take care everyone and I’ll be back tomorrow.
Blessings and love,
