As those of you who read here know, my mother lives with us. She has been hosting the Empty Nester's Sewing Circle for several years. The ladies decided this year that they would contribute to the Church bazaar, and have been feverishly sewing for the past six months or so. I've contributed four quilt tops to be quilted by another woman. Two of them came back to me just this week to be bound, and we're hoping to have the other two by Sunday.
The ladies have also volunteered to host the monthly Empty Nester's luncheon this month. Elegante Mother and I are committed to providing dinner rolls and an appetizer. I have been pouring over my holiday cook books, trying to settle on an appetizer for tomorrow morning, and simply haven't been able to make a decision. I can see that I'll have to make a dash to the store tonight.
We have spent a very quiet day here today. I SHOULD have put up the Christmas decorations, but I used my time to snooze and bind quilts instead. Hopefully, the guys will bring the fake Christmas trees up from the basement, and EM and I will work on getting them decorated during the coming week. This will be the earliest that we have been ready for the Holidays in years. I'm loathe to give up my fall decorations, but once the Christmas things are in place, it will be okay.
Dear Husband worked for half a day today, and spent half a day snoozing. We had planned to work on the leaves tomorrow, but we'll be going to an open house for his brother, instead. The leaves will hold.
Are you ready to leave Thanksgiving behind and move on? I have just two presents ordered, I'll have to make up my mind and get a move on!
