I think one of the things I enjoy most about the Christmas season are the colors, especially red! It is so cheerful and just adds a bit of spark to the dreary landscape.
Last night we attended a Christmas concert. My granddaughter, Fallon plays the clarinet. It was so adorable.
It is snowing again today, we got about 4 inches or so. It is so pretty and quiet outside.
I was up early to use every single second of the day. I baked some cookies......
This tray of cookies is going to a super nice lady who is 86ish. My husband and I call her "the nicest lady in the whole world". No, she is not one of our mothers......but we have never heard her say a bad thing about anyone and would do anything for anyone. Her name is Mary....kind of goes with Christmas?
The smells of Christmas are also wonderful. I found these at Wegman's, the hand soap is called Mistletoe and the dish soap is called Frosted Fir, they smell so fresh and Christmas like.
They sit right next to my poinsettias that I bought from the Boy Scouts. I am going to try and keep this going after Christmas.
As I was finishing up my baking the snowing was almost over. My husband who plows snow came upstairs and said he was leaving and did I want to see a little sewing he did? The normal jacket he wears is in the wash, so he improvised with one that is a little too small in the sleeves.....more like cutting than sewing.
Now for some more red and white.....what can I create?
