|It's Beginning to Look Festive
I am slowly decorating the house for Christmas. On Sunday, I decorated the tree. On Monday, I pulled the wreaths out from their bin and hung them up. On Tuesday, I pulled out the Christmas tree toppers and a couple of other items that are stored in that bin. I will ask M to put the glass tree topper on for me when he is here on Wednesday because I don't want to climb up the step stool to do so myself.
My daughter is still testing positive, but, her friend, who was giving her a ride home has offered to delay the trip to give her an extra couple of days to recover! That was such a kind offer! So, we are hopeful that she might still be able to come down on Friday! We will take it one day at a time!
On Tuesday, I made another Christmas card to send to a friend, checked on the plants in the garden, cooked a chicken curry, and finished making a gift. In the evening, my daughter helped me to select a few additional gifts, two of which will be shipped to the recipients who live in other states (they are New Year's gifts to non-Christian family members and will reach them before January 1).
Today, I am grateful for:
- My daughter's friend's generous offer to delay the planned trip home in order to give her an additional day or two to recover!
- Phone calls with family and friends
- Daughter's help with ordering gifts online
- People keeping in touch with holiday greeting cards
- What I was able to accomplish today
Today's joyful activity was choosing gifts to give family and friends.
Plans for tomorrow include tending to the garden with M and cooking the second tray of chicken. I'd like to get some tidying and cleaning done, too.
How was your Tuesday? Are you ready for the holidays? Have you got all your shopping done and gifts made or are you like me, waiting until the last day?
