Hello My Friends!
Happy Winter Solstice! Happy Birthday to my brother Chris! It is another chilly morning here - everything is frosted over and sparkly. So pretty.
My pedicure yesterday was lovely. While I was there a gentleman came in - he must have been in his 70's (I can say that because he had white hair and mentioned that he had one child who is 55 and another who is in their late 40's). He got a pedicure right next to me and then moved over for a manicure. It was nice to see (I have seen other men getting "treatments" at this salon, but it has been a long time!).
I did end up making two more kinds of cookies yesterday. Cut-Outs (sand tarts) and a new one I saw - Finnish Cardamom Cookies.
Both are delicious!! I think I'm finished baking, but realized I have not made any peanut butter cookies. I know I said I wasn't going to make as many as I usually do...but...we do give quite a few away. I'll see how my time goes.
Fletch and I managed to get gifts for Colin & Mailing wrapped before dinner. Today he is heading over to Colin's for lunch and a movie. While he is out I will wrap his gifts (and some others). I also have domestic chores that I should get done (i.e., bathroom cleaning, kitchen floor mopping). Luckily work has been mostly quiet. Late this afternoon I will head over for dinner at Colin & Mailing's. So, my day is pretty well mapped out.
On this Winter Solstice Day we are also celebrating TNT or Tiny Needle Tuesday. I'm happy to say that I was able to re-start my small winter piece and the border met up!
I even managed to stitch one of the reindeer. I doubt I will finish this by Christmas, but it should be finished by sometime next week so that I can start something new for the New Year!
I do hope everyone is relaxed and enjoying this week.
