It has been an absolutely wonderful past couple of weeks, even with Mother Nature trying to throw us for a little loop. I won’t go into the details, but here are some highlights…
I got the sweater pillows sent off to my sister’s for their Christmas presents. The purple one turned out great – I had a quick inspiration on how to decorate it, and I’m very pleased with the result:
Our tree looked lovely even if it was a little bare. Our ornaments have been lacking the last few years, but a little trip to Target yesterday took care of that for next year. It was still a beautiful sight…
Godfrey had to be in the middle of it all, of course…
Jason roasted a duck and vegetables for dinner – it was his first duck and it was *delicious*. I am so lucky!
He loved his present – much to the terror of the dog!
I simply have to include this picture of a parsnip from the garden. We didn’t thin them enough, I guess, because in my stepfather’s words, “That isn’t a parsnip, it’s a housing development!” And a slightly crude one, at that!
Well, I’ve got about two week left of winter vacation before I start my last semester of classes. And believe me, I am very eager to take advantage of every moment.
Today is all about getting my home picked up, some sort of project, though I have no idea which one, and some studying in preparation for classes.
I love my life.
