“Heat wave burning in my heart”..but in my case it was outside..it was 22 degrees ABOVE zero yesterday that would be -5 C. I took off my parka. It felt like spring…the sun was shining too…a perfect day to run errands and purchase stocking stuffers.
I got nothing completed, I made progress but nothing is done done. The Shiny Brite tree is still in progress. The tree downstairs needs an Angel on the top and a few more ornaments…Far Guy says “Where will they go? I don’t recognize most of these ornaments anyway..where did we get them all?” He doesn’t realize that every ornament has a story.
This year I did an ornament exchange with Beckie from Colorado.
This is a folded fabric covered ornament. I love the red white and blue!
This one made me smile.
A melted snowman..too cute! Just my kinda snowman.
Today might be the day I get caught up. I am not holding my breath. I will cook beans for baked beans for Christmas and the freezer. Of course the smell of burning starch water will permeate the kitchen because I will boil them over..several times. I hope the warm weather sticks around but I am not counting on it because after all this is
nearly the North Pole Minnesota.
