I found a wishbone from another turkey we had a while ago and I took it to husband and said "make a wish". He was completely blank. He said I have nothing to wish for! Really nothing?? Well finally he came up with something and we broke it, the top went flying and our sides were basically the same. So maybe we wished for the same thing? But I found it very interesting that he had to think long and hard for a wish.
Thanksgiving was very quiet for us. We made the decision to stay home. Our daughter was having a big crowd and we thought better of it. So I took a nice long walk in the morning. It is always pretty quiet but that day it was almost soundless! I met no one and not one car. I heard no barking from the neighbors dogs or even the wind in the trees. It was a true meditation.
We have gotten pretty chilly here, the woodstove and the fireplace are doing their job. So thankful for both.
It is a family joke about The Griswolds Christmas. My daughter sent us our first Christmas card so fun. My husband has been called Clark on certain Christmas' (his name is David lol) The spirit just get to him and he goes a little over the top. I love it!
I put up my christmas village. I know I show this every year but I just love seeing it appear every year!
You never know you may catch Santa kissing Mrs Clause. Or an elf bringing in the tree.
A funky church with amazing trees, oh it all makes my heart sing.
Because the price of everything has gone up including electricity I was going to skip putting the candles in the windows. Clark aka husband thought I had lost my mind! So as you can see they are in the windows. they are all dusk to dawn candles. Automatic off and on.
We got out first snow, really a dusting but it rained first and so it was pretty slick driving to work the next day. Not sure what happened to our road crew? (not enough people?) it could be a long winter.
I got the yarn I was missing so I am at the finish off point for my shawl. And my hooking is slow but steady. But I am loving it.
I did order a couple of things on line black friday but really it was on the deals and steals thing so not much. I feel like I am done I just want to get a couple of gift cards and that is it.
I need to sit down and do Christmas cards, I still like to do cards I know they are expensive too.
I hope you all had a wonderful time and are filled with good food and good visits. Have a great week.
