A little at a time
I always feel like I am not doing enough because I didn't get done all that I wanted. But in truth, I've accomplished so much. We all got ready and out the door for school this morning; a full day of work; shopping with Yusef while Zack tried out for basketball(the kids homeroom classes are buying Christmas gifts for one of the support staff at school so we got a nice blanket, long sleeved shirt, socks and scarf for the worker that his class will be gifting); back to pick Zack up from school; ate lunch at 5 pm; decorated the tree; made banana muffins, fudge and Mexican wedding cookies; folded clothes; washed dishes -- and still so much to do.
This morning when I got to my desk, I had a surprise waiting for me.
It was a gift from my boss and his wife. A vegetarian soup cookbook that is put out by the Halifax Canada theater company their son is in.
Yum! The first one I want to try is "Indian Spiced Zucchini Coconut Soup." Sounds delish!
Here's a little more of the decorating I've been doing.
A handpainted bowl from the Handicapped Society.
I love my crocheted garlands. Will be making some in my regular decorating colors that I can use year round. (Of course, red is one of my colors.
Just before I took this picture of Jingles, she was trying to swat some ornaments loose so she could bat them around the living room. Now she is sitting so pretty and looking at me like "What did I do?"
Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree! How lovely ...
It's 10:25 pm here in Kuwait. Already past my bedtime, but I need to go tie up the baked goods, tidy up the kitchen, and then maybe sit and crochet just a bit before I hit the hay. Hope you all had a productive start to your week. Blessings, Tammy
