Another week is coming to a close, which means it’s time again for Friday Fragments.
The wall that I’ve been hitting around dinnertime wasn’t quite as solid last night as the previous 3 nights. I’m hoping that means that the worst of this cold is becoming a thing of the past.
And it’s not a moment too soon because I’ll have the Ts here today and will be going with to the swim meet Saturday (an all-day event about 2 hours from here).
Our small group is trying to find an evening when we can all get together for a Christmas party … I looked at my calendar, and there are only 4 evenings between now and Christmas that I can be sure that we’d be available.
Our area is still under drought conditions … the Mississippi River is so low that a WWII minesweeper that sank years and years ago is now exposed.
We’re supposed to get some rain this weekend … not enough to impact the drought, but a little rain is better than no rain, I suppose. The rain is supposed to bring in colder weather. Even though we’re no longer having 70+ degree days, it’s still unseasonably warm here … the low last night was the typical high temperature this time of year. It’s just not feeling very Christmas-y without some colder weather. And some snow would be even better!
I did some more quilting on my I Spy yesterday. I’m quilting the borders, and while it’s going reasonably well, I don’t think I’m going to make my (self-imposed) Christmas deadline … not with something going on almost every single day/evening between now and Christmas. Maybe I need to start a new tradition of giving gifts on New Year’s Day!
