Hi everyone, how is your week going? Can you believe that Christmas Eve is only 2 weeks from tomorrow? And guess what? I'm almost ready. Last night I put the push on to wrap and package two parcels that had to be mailed today. And this morning, I did all my Christmas cards that had to be mailed. I guess when push comes to shove I'm right there. LOL
I went to the post office and mailed the whole lot this morning so they should reach their destinations before Christmas.
This afternoon I started paring down some of the 'stuff' I have in our house. Oh my. I just got the spare bed cleared of Christmas gifts and now it's loaded with boxes of things for the thrift store. I want it gone this week before I change my mind. :-) I know January is usually the time to do this job but I'm getting a head start. (more pushing and shoving here!) It sure feels good!
I've been to town shopping on Monday and Tuesday....the latter being 6 hours long! Monday was the day I went to my friend Kathy's for tea along with 3 other friends, after I'd been shopping and to a doctor's appointment - where I waited a good 90 minutes. I was so tired and hungry by the time I got to Kathy's but, we had a wonderful time chatting and laughing and, of course, eating sweets and drinking Christmas flavoured tea. Sweet fellowship.
The weather the past few days has been really nice - sunny and above freezing temperatures. Just look at last night's sunset. It was gorgeous. Today was cloudy all day and there is rain coming later tomorrow. Great days for getting out and shopping etc with no snow or slippery roads to worry about.
We are off to Houlton, Maine on Saturday (yes, I'm going this time) as Murray is playing for The LaPointes at Country Road Baptist Church. If you're in the area come on out for an evening of beautiful music. The next concert is at our own Sunset Church on the 20th at 6:00 with our Christmas Music Night featuring our choir (including moi) and talented singers and musicians, along with The LaPointes. Then we can relax and enjoy Christmas. :-)
How are your Christmas preparations coming along? Getting any closer to being done? I still have to shop for our son and his wife who "don't want anything" unless it's something that will "support local business" (not 'big box' stores!) so I'm going to have fun finding something for them. I totally agree with what they want and will do my best. I just need to get to town again and maybe the market. Any suggestions?
Well I must get going and post this. I'm slowly getting around to visiting you. Thank you for visiting me and commenting.
Have a super rest of the week and weekend!
