After the Thanksgiving festivities ended last night, I decided I was going on a mental health/handwork break for the next three days. And the weather couldn't be more conducive to just that!
We got our first snow of the season over night! Only about 3" but lots of blowing and a few drifts around and about the house and out buildings. Temp dropped to the low 20s and we're supposed to stay there (during the day . . . into the low teens at night) for the next week. Hubby made a trip up to the storage loft first thing this morning to bring down our heavy Sorel footwear.
I think this is the first year in quite a few that we've had snow cover before Christmas.
Now it really feels like time to get these guys and the rest of the fall/Thanksgiving decorations packed away and bring out the Christmas things. Hubby and I even came to an agreement as to where to put a little tree this year. The previous location is no more because of the remodeling.
I have oodles of leftovers (a BIG advantage to hosting Thanksgiving Dinner) to package up for the freezer. We both really like turkey and will have no trouble using every last little bit of it. The turkey carcass and all least desirable parts are simmering on the stove this morning to make several containers of rich broth. Can you smell the divine aroma?
Christmas music is playing on the stereo and I'm heading into my quilt room. My new holiday wall hanging is sandwiched . . . but not one stitch of quilting has been done on it. I hope to make big progress on that particular project within the next few days. And I'd like to finish up the binding on the holiday potholders I'm making for little gifts. And complete the knitting on my blue sweater. And quilt the new holiday shower curtain I started (how many?) years ago. And lie on the couch and read. And watch that Netflix movie I've had for two weeks. And give myself a much needed pedicure. And . . .
Bye. Gotta go start having fun!
St. Patrick's Day
