One of the things I like to do with old greeting cards is cut them up to make gift tags! I'm sure lots of others do this, too. I punch a hole in one of the corners and tie it to the package or gift bag with some ribbon or red yarn. I haven't bought gift tags in years!
It started raining, last night, and it rained all night and pretty much all day, today! Such a blessing to receive all that rain! The garden needed it!
I spent the day cross stitching on a set of kitchen towels and wrapping up more gifts! One of the gifts I ordered was delivered, today, while the fabric store cancelled our order for the replacement rotary cutter blades and the beading thread that my daughter wanted, stating that the store was out of supplies (even though the store website had said they were available when we placed the order). We will try again after the holidays.
Cousin P called me today to thank me for the gift I gave her and to ask if I can give her a ride to the Christmas dinner and back. I told her I can give her a ride. Shortly afterwards, cousin V called to ask if I was OK with giving P a ride to the Christmas dinner and back and I said yes. The main reason I will be attending Saturday's get together is because it might very well be the last time all of us cousins will be together.
I also had a long chat on the phone with friend R and with aunt C and exchanged texts with cousin N. I also took a plate of rice and curries over to neighbor S and her daughter N. It has been a good day for interacting with family, friends, and, neighbors.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Rain for the garden
- A good, non-leaky roof!
- Phone chats with family and friends
- Being able to order gifts and have them delivered
- Daughter helping me with one of the gifts I made
Today's joyful activity was cross stitching.
Plans for tomorrow include baking! I will start off with a couple of batches of cornbread muffins and later, daughter and I hope to make the cashew and semolina cake that is known as love cake in Sri Lanka.
How was your Thursday? What are your plans for Christmas Eve?
