|Dancer Checks Out the Christmas Tree|
It was a sunny day, today. In the morning, the temperature was 36F at M's house, which is a couple of miles from my house and he said there was frost on the roofs in his neighborhood. It was a little warmer by the time I woke up, but, it was still crisp and cold. Our high today was 55F.
M was able to fix the cover on top of the vent pipe, this morning, but, he found that there was a hole in the pipe, itself. I might have to replace that pipe - I'll add it to that ever growing list of home repairs I have to do!
I finished crocheting the blanket, today, and washed and dried it. Then, I hung up the wreaths and did a bit of decorating. I didn't put the Winter Village up, yet, though. I need to clear off the counter on the pass through between the kitchen and the family room to set up the Village, there. The house is looking very messy, again, with the bins of holiday decorations out and piles of gifts waiting to be wrapped, etc. I discovered that I didn't have as many medium sized gift bags as I had thought and had to order a few, as well as more tissue paper! They should be delivered on Friday, along with a gift that I ordered.
Later, in the evening, I cooked a dhal (lentils) curry and curried green beans to go with leftover rice and chicken curry from yesterday for our dinner. After dinner, I put away the leftovers, did the dishes, cleaned the litter box, etc., and chatted a bit with friend R.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A sunny day to dry out from the rain
- M tending to the garden and fixing the vent cover
- I was able to finish crocheting the blanket in good time
- Being able to order gift wrapping supplies online and having them delivered
- Cards arriving in the mail, each bearing a holiday wish from a friend or family member.
Today's joyful activity was finishing the blanket!
Plans for tomorrow include tidying the house and writing cards!
