Sharon and I had a wonderful day together! I picked her up around 11:30 and we hit the mall just to wander with the crowds and sight see. We are both finished our shopping so it's fun to be there without any pressure to buy. I did end up purchasing a new pink sweater and necklace for myself. Hey...might as well shop for someone since I was there and today that someone was me! ;o)
After returning home we enjoyed puttering in her kitchen preparing Monday's Chrismas turkey and tasting it just to make sure it was worthy of Christmas dinner for her family. Yup! It passed with flying colours.
Before I left we added some pretty red bows to the trees out front of she and Larry's home. There is nothing like big red bows at Christmas to give the yard a cheery touch. Since we're having a green (and much warmer than normal) Christmas in these parts it's good to get all we can in the way of outside decorations.
I've spent this evening making turkey soup to enjoy later in the week. Mmmm...I love homemade soup!
Can you believe I haven't started my wrapping? Ummm...nope! There's just something about wrapping on Christmas Eve day and often that's when it happens for me. After going to church tomorrow morning I'll come home, enjoy a piping hot bowl of turkey soup, put on either a Christmas movie or music and set to wrapping. I'm looking forward to it!
Here'a a picture of my little home all decked out for Christmas. It's a good thing I put these lights up outside in November as sadly the inside has not one single decoration this year. Just didn't have time before we left for Florida and decided when we got home to take the pressure off myself and not decorate this year. I have Hannah's flowers and lots of beautiful cards from friends and that will be it for this year. I'm sure next year the tree will come out again but for this year I'll enjoy those of family and friends.
