Christmas Week

I didn't realize how long it has been since I last posted.  I started one on the 15th, but never did finish it.  At that time we were busy trying to get my husband ready to leave on his trip to India.  He left on the 16th and is there now.  Christmas is going to be very strange without him here. 

My son is home from college, and it's so nice to have him here.  We're trying to finish up our shopping and wrapping so it won't all be waiting for us on Christmas Eve.  I always seem to be shopping right up until the last minute.  Traditionally, I forget to put at least one gift under the tree and find it several days later.  Unfortunately, this year, I can't find one of my gifts to even wrap it.  I'm going to get everything else wrapped up and hopefully, it will turn up in one of the shopping bags, although it came from Amazon.

Needless to say, no sewing is getting done this week, but I have made 3 kinds of fudge, cookies, and my all time favorite Christmas goodie, currant cakes.  My mother used to make a couple of batches during the holidays because we all liked them so much. 

So to all my blogging friends, enjoy the time with your familes and all of your holiday traditions, and I'll be back when things get back to normal around here.  Merry Christmas!

I seem to always forget a gift as well. Guess that comes from finding it so early and then forgetting that I got it. Grrr.

May you have a wonderful Christmas as well.

Got a kick out of you saying you'll be back when things get back to normal...seems like at my place, things never get back to normal. LOL Enjoy your "different" Christmas with hubby away on his trip....I'm sure you'll have a nice visit with your son while he's home! Hope you find that missing gift, too. I"m sure it's frustrating.

Many holidays were spent without my husband due to military deployments. I was always so thankful to have my two boys though so young. We never lived near family (still don't). Anyway, glad to read you have a son home from college (me too). Wishing you a Merry Christmas!
