The Day After and a little Saturday Pink
I hope that everyone had a most blessed and wonderful Christmas Day! This is the first year that we did not have a typical Christmas with a traditional holiday meal. Instead, we took one of Sam's employees out to lunch along with his wife.
They are a very sweet couple from India who are working here while their three children are still back home. Although they make more money here than they would in their own country, their wages are still so very, very low. When we asked them what they would like to eat, they said Indian food! So off we went to my favorite restaurant, Rangoli!
We had a delicous meal, then walked around a bit.
Back to our house for tea on the balcony and Christmas gifts. They don't speak English and although Sam speaks Urdu, he does not speak Hindi, so they had to communicate in Arabic. A lot of translation going on.
It was certainly a different kind of Christmas but that's okay, as long as they enjoyed their time.
I even had time for some crafting in the evening. All this recycling I am doing is getting out of hand. I took an instant coffee jar, decoupaged a rose onto it, added some ribbon and green bath salts. Will be a nice little gift for someone.
My resolution is to clean a little and craft a little every single day! Hope that you are all finding some time to relax now that Christmas Day has come and gone. We are still enjoying another week off as I am sure many of you are. Happy Holidays! Tammy
