Good morning. I have been busy with the Christmas Quilt Along that I posted about in previous post. I am enjoying it so much! There was one block that I wasn't happy with on the fabric I chose. So I did decide to redo it. Which meant ripping out several seams, because the section it was in had already been put together.
We have been given instructions to sew two of the sections together now. Here they are, sewn together, along with the other blocks on my design boards.
We had to put our Wheaten down on Saturday. He had numerous health issues, and they were getting much worse. He was Greg's dog really. Greg is very sad. For that I feel so badly. But he was not well, and had taken to relieving himself all over the house! He could not be adopted out, and so he was put down. Dusty doesn't seem to be confused at all. I am surprised about that.
I have been cooking up some good stuff lately. Sorry, no photos. I made a meatloaf with homemade bbq sauce last night. Mashed potatoes and veggies. Beef barley soup the other day. Cornbread in a cast iron skillet....Mmmmmm!! Time for that good old home style cooking. I even put some new flannies on the best yesterday too!
So, not a whole lot of new stuff going on here right now. But there will be in the weeks to come. There are a lot of festive things coming up. Like the Newport Beach Boat Parade on my brother David's boat. My First Annual Siblings Only Dinner!!!! I have invited my brothers and Uncle Johnny, who is like a brother, as he grew up in our home too, to go to dinner with me, no spouses...just us. We are going to The Summit House, which is a lovely restaurant that sits up on a hill with a spectacular view. I can't wait.
I am having a Christmas Cookie decorating party with my grandkids and daughters. I will bake up all of the cookies, and have the icing ready, and when they come, we will make beautiful cookies and memories!!!
We will do our annual enchilada making party here again. We make dozens and dozens of enchiladas! Everyone wears a holiday apron, and gets in on the action. It is fun, messy, and we all take home dozens of enchiladas to freeze for later, and we eat a Mexican Feast on Christmas Eve, starring our enchiladas!!!
What about you? What do have to look forward to this holiday season?
