The Weekend Wrap-up
It’s Monday, and time for The Weekend Wrap-up. This past weekend wasn’t your typical weekend, but it still deserves a Wrap-up.
Our weekend got off to a great start … with our annual cookie-baking day. One of my most favorite Christmas traditions is baking Christmas cookies with DD. This year since DD is still sloooooowly recovering from her surgery, we decided to scale back from our usual 10-12 different kinds of cookies. We picked 6 dozen of our favorites and doubled up some of them … and we had plenty of cookies for us and for sharing. Good thing we decided to scale back as we were both ready to be done by the time we finished up.
Christmas Eve was our day with DD and family. What fun we had … opening presents, playing with the new toys, preparing a meal. Unfortunately the fantastic day was not without a downside … T#1 and T#2 started to complain of not feeling well by late afternoon.
We took down our tree when we got home from church on Christmas. Aside from taking down the tree (we love having a real tree, and even though the needles were still pliable, I was ready to reclaim my living room), our Christmas Day was a pretty lazy one. After a busy (but GOOD) week, it was nice to just take it easy.
Today will more than likely be a fairly quiet day at Chez Nana. We’ve got a new puzzle to start, a movie (The Help) to watch, and a quilt top to get back to work on.
