It’s almost December 23! Christmas Eve is the day after tomorrow. Oh my! How are you all doing with that? I’m reading through the book of Luke in the Bible, one chapter a day to help prepare my heart for Christmas this year. With all of the news and chaos out there in the world, it is really helping to calm my spirit.
It has definitely gotten colder here. It’s supposed to be 16°F tonight. So far we are still cozy and warm here in the RV. The worst part is not having the doggie door for Chloe anymore. I am forced to take her out on walks several times a day which I guess isn’t all bad is it? It makes me get up, put my coat and boots on and wander around outside for a while instead of sitting in my chair all day.
I did go and pick up my groceries this morning, minus the eggnog and the bread I forgot to order. Walmart said they have been out of eggnog for days. Dennis really likes it and so I tried to order a half gallon for him. No luck. This will be the first Christmas since we were married that he hasn’t had his eggnog. When I talked to Mandy this afternoon, she said they haven’t had eggnog at their store either. There must be a problem with supply somewhere. The only thing they were out of besides the eggnog, was a pie I had ordered for Christmas and some biscuits. That wasn’t too bad. I have always made my own pies but the oven situation isn’t the best here, so I was going to splurge and buy a pecan pie as it is also a favorite of Dennis’s. I may run across the road to the little store early tomorrow morning and get the pie and bread. I was thinking today that I don’t remember the last time I took a grocery cart and leisurely walked up and down the aisles choosing what I wanted to buy. It will seem so odd to be able to do that again someday.
And here is my mini stocking from this morning. Candy!
I did manage to finish one pair of mittens and the first one out of a second set. I have the cuff done on the remaining mitten, but probably won’t get much more done tonight.
I’m at the point where I need to decide what big project I’m going to work on next. I want to make Dennis another sweater. I want to work on my cross-stitch and I also want to work on my cozy memories nine-patch blanket. Decisions, decisions! I am running into a snag on the sweater though, no pun intended. I thought I had the pattern in the binder I brought to the RV with me and it’s not there. I have no idea where to start looking in the storage unit. We packed so fast and I’m not sure which box my binders of patterns are in. He definitely wants the same sweater. I think I’m going to look at past blog posts and hopefully I told all of you the name of the sweater in a post.
I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and are able to relax as we prepare for Christmas, the celebration of the birth of the Christ Child. Stay safe and well out there everyone.
Blessings and love,
