Meteorologists? Bah Humbug!
Once again the meteorologists failed to come through for us. Originally the forecast was for 4-6 inches, then 3-4 inches, then a couple of inches, then less than one inch … and when I woke up this morning, there wasn’t a flake of snow to be seen. The snow missed our area altogether. What’s worse is that according to the weather map, the snow missed us by just a couple of miles.
We had a quiet Christmas here at Chez Nana. I worked in the nursery during the first Christmas Eve service, so we attended the second service. During the message, our minister was sharing a story about a family who was driving around, pointing out the nativity scenes … “Look, it’s the Wise Men” and “Look, it’s the Shepherds” … and the little boy in the story exclaimed “Look, Mommy, it’s Baby Santa” … to which T#3 shouted out “No, it’s Baby Jesus”. That little guy “gets it”.
Thankfully we were able to get home in time to watch “It’s a Wonderful Life” again. Yes, I know that we watched it a few weeks earlier, but it’s such a wonderful movie … it’s worth seeing twice in one Christmas season.
Christmas Day, DH and I exchanged our gifts. We promised each other that we wouldn’t get each other anything for Christmas, but it turned out that we both wanted to give each other a little something anyway. I got a subscription to Quiltmaker magazine.
Because it was Christmas, I didn’t want to sequester myself in my sewing room, so I brought my sewing table out to the living room … and continued to work on my disappearing four patch blocks. DH read while I stitched … nothing very exciting, but we were together, both content, both doing something we loved. We finished the evening with a movie.
Speaking of my quilt, I have 10 of the 16 blocks finished … I’d like to get the quilt pieced and sandwiched today, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to get that far as we really need to get our tree down.
That’s about all I have on my agenda for today … taking the tree down and sewing. Just like I don’t do Black Friday, I don’t do the After-Christmas sales. Ha!
