Alight…

On the way home this evening it was cold and rainy.  Dreary to be sure, but I had a nice surprise when I got home.   My Christmas decorations were up and alight for the first time this Christmas season.  I went in, got my camera, and took a picture.

The first drink I made myself, after getting in the house, was a cup of hot cocoa.   The perfect thing after work on a cold day.

The movie “A Christmas Carol” was on… it was about halfway through, but I watched the remainder of the movie.  It’s a classic after all.  🙂

I’m finally beginning to feel better, and am to a point where I think I can relax.  Everything for Christmas is done.  Things are settling down at work…. until after the first of new year, then in a month or so… back to the crazy “hamster wheel”.

So I’m going to try to enjoy the next couple of weeks.

I want to show you my new Christmas stocking.  My friend, Judy B. made it and I have it hanging proudly in place of my old one.

Time for a change

I decided I wanted a change in the bigger bathroom.  So I went to my fabric stash and picked out some fabric and in any free moments and time of energy I made new curtains.

 When we first moved in I hung these brown curtains.  They went well with the tile work in the shower.  They have served their purpose and it was time for a change.

I decided I wanted to lighten up the room, so I chose a blue floral fabric and decided on using only valances.  This allows more sunlight to enter the bathroom which is good for one of the hanging plants we had to bring in.

So here is how it looks now.

I am ready, so very ready for the weekend.  It is supposed to be stormy this week, but I hope I am feeling energetic enough to work on some Christmas ornaments.

At some point, since I last posted about the Christmas stocking, I made a dust cover for it.  The stocking has a snowman on it and I had some fabric with snowmen, so I made cover out of it.  It has a drawstring closure.

I guess that’s all I have for now.

Update

Hello,

I saw some beautiful fall color today.  As I was driving back to work on my lunch break I saw a tree with a little green, but mostly red, orange and yellow.  The sun was shining on it just right and the colors popped.  🙂

I hope to get some pretty picture of the color change soon.

Families are like…

Hello, summer is definitely here. 

It was a scorcher today.   As usual, I had to get out of the office for lunch.  It is now too hot to have lunch in my car without using up my gas to keep cool.  There isn’t a picnic table or shade at work that I can use, so I go in search of new little shops I haven’t been to. 

Today I checked out a thrift shop, I have driven by several times, and found this cute little print.  I think it will look nice in my sewing area.

Earlier this evening, or I guess I should say last night as it is after 1 a.m., I decided to try out an action shot or two.   While fueling up the car, David cleaned my windshield.   I think the pictures turned out pretty clear.
 

Then I got this shot as we were driving down Phoenix Ave.

That’s all I have for now.

Here’s wishing you a Fabulous Friday!

God bless and keep you,
Sonia
