I hope everyone has had a good start to their week. This is our last day of Eid vacation and it has been the busiest one yet. I took Yusef for a haircut this morning. The blues started when I didn't see a large L shaped brick on the passenger side so when I went to park, I scraped the bottom of my car and then it got wedged in front of my back tire. Ugh! Two men came along, lifted my car and pulled it out. There's some damage but what to do. It's only a car; that's what I tell myself. My hairdresser and friend, Kathy, came back from New Mexico a couple of weeks ago and today gave me a bracelet and this cute chilli pepper ornament. (She said they would help me to feel better about the car :)
I also snapped two pictures of ornaments she has on her Christmas tree. I just thought they were so pretty and unique; and they were also brought back from New Mexico.
While she was cutting Yusef's hair, I crocheted, and finished this that I started yesterday.
Next on the to-do list was grocery shopping and then home to make fudge.
At 2 pm, the kids and I were off to my friend Sheryll's for an Operation Hope winter bag packing. 43 volunteers showed up to man 3 tables and pack 1500 bags with longjohns and a long-sleeved undershirt; a pair of socks, gloves and a ski cap. It took us one hour to accomplish the task. "Many hands make light work."
My final to-do for the day was to bake Mexican Wedding Cookies (a/k/a Russian Teacakes or Sandtarts -- this cookie has many names). I did two batches so rolled over 100 cookies. I then bagged them up and tied them up like a little parcel in my crocheted hot pads. The fudge was wrapped up in wax paper and tied with yarn. Everything was delivered to Sheryll by 6:45 pm for the British Ladies Society Festive Bazaar tomorrow afternoon. (And yes, I will be going there straight from school.)
I appreciate you stopping by and wish you a wonderful day. Peace & blessings, Tammy
