Day 4 of the month of December and I haven't been here since the last of November.
This week has been a blur. My dear son, my firstborn passed along his cold to me so I have been totally out of sorts for the past many days. Yesterday, I really needed some comfort food -- a steaming hot bowl of vege noodle soup and some cornbread. Yum!
December 1st was the third meeting of the Yarn & Fiber Group and crochet was on the agenda. Even though I felt icky, I didn't want to miss it. Unfortunately, I was so caught up in the whole evening, I forgot to take pictures. I did manage to make peanut butter cookies, wrapped them up with a piece of dark chocolate and gave them as a gift along with one of my crocheted dishcloths to the ladies at the meeting. For some, it was their first meeting and they were so happy to take something home.
Yesterday morning Zack had his first scrimmage game of the season. His team lost in a close game 6-4. We will have scrimmages now for the next three Fridays in a row and then will have the holiday break.
I have missed all the holiday bazaars that have taken place the past couple of weekends. I just feel like I need to make my own gifts for holiday giving, rather than buying all the time. While convalescing yesterday afternoon, I crocheted two dishcloths and a skinny scarf, all in holiday colors.
Cleaning has been on the agenda for today. And finally, some holiday decorating. My youngest declared that two of his friends had their tree up and we are way behind. Decorations are finally being brought out. This year, I'm only going to do a small tree with only handmade decorations. My kids don't yet know that part. But guess what, they are going to be making the decorations. :)
Hope December has been good to you so far. Let the holiday season begin! Friendship Blessings, Tammy
