Wow, did we ever have a busy Saturday! I went to a women's group Christmas breakfast with Mollie this morning. It was wonderful to share Christmas memories and traditions that we are passing on to the next generation. After breakfast, we went to Charles' football game. And they had their first win of the season! Yeah! Then we came home and did a thorough cleaning, as we are hosting a Christmas Party tomorrow for our "life group" from our church. It is basically a group of 12 - 14 people who get together for fun and to grow together spiritually as well as pray for each other and be a real community for each other in this age of isolationism. Anyway, we set up the tree last night and tidied up the house today. We got a little crazy and even did the garage! (Which means I can now get to more of my fabric stash - lol).
And with all the busyness, I went to the mailbox and what did I find? My Secret Santa package from the Bee Sew Whimsical Swap! It came all the way from Australia from the wonderful Bronwyn. She doesn't have a blog, so I won't link her :) . I already put the ornaments on the tree and have hung the banner in my kitchen! It was such a beautiful package with many wonderful items inside, two beautiful handmade ornaments (I wish I could do embroidery stitches that small!), a card, a banner, a magazine, candies, a beautiful Christmas cracker, and an adorable tape measure. I am getting ready to sit down for a spell and read the gorgeous magazine that was in the package. This swap was so much fun and now I have a new friend too :) Thank you so very much for the awesome package! All in all a busy and wonderfully full day. Life is good.
