I pray that this day finds you safe, warm & happy with those that you love. I feel so blessed that we are able to be with our daughter & son-in-law & the 4 granddogs (3 are greyhounds, and a tiny dachshund that belonged to our SIL's Dad has come to live with our kids. Sadly, his Master is no longer able to care for him due to dementia problems. Charlie is a real sweetie & seems to have adapted quite well to his new home. He's definitely a people 'person' & is so optimistic at meal times. He has diabetes so table treats are forbidden and he only gets his own special type of treats on occasion).
We have been fortunate to have had some lovely days of warm sunshine and some relaxation. One day we drove about 2 hours up the road to the SIL's Dad's place to do some cleaning out. Not a happy occasion, but we were glad to be able to help just a little. Also had some nice lunches & usually had leftovers for dinner. Tonight we had a Christmas Eve meal from Chinese take-out. Yummm.
I took a couple pictures of the DD's Christmas tree, and the tree skirt that I made for her long ago, in another hobby-lifetime. I hope you'll like seeing them, as I have no card to share. I did get out an image to color this afternoon, but didn't make a lot of progress. Then it was time to pick up supplies to get ready for dinner. Too hard to drag out, put away and keep my motivation steady. I've really enjoyed Netflix & Acorn TV while I've been here. Lazy is me.
If you look closely at the clear ornament to the left of the "V" shape, it is the poinsettia Ritz glitter ornament I made last year. I loved this tree skirt, and the center diamond of each diamond has some machine embroidery - which also was a long ago hobby. I only made one of these skirts...I always wished I'd made one for our tree. Alas, I never did! Probably never shall at this late date. So it gladdens my heart that DD always uses it.
I want to wish all who visit & have visited here, a wonderful Merry Christmas, filled with all the things that give you joy & happiness. I am so appreciative of all who have visited, left comments & encouragement over the past year. It has meant so very much to me, and has been such a wonderful adventure that I certainly never expected to have. See you soon with some cards in the New Year. God Bless, and many warm hugs.
