Hello! I ache all over after hustling about dusting and polishing, but I am enjoying my clean house. I really should make this happen a little more often. Smile. Do you see that I brought the garden gnomes in for Christmas? I like them.
Two things I didn't get done: sew some festive Christmas bunting for the windows and finish a crocheted cushion. I may do this today. But, I may just drink tea and play with Miss Bug who is staying here while her sisters go to a cookie party. She has the sniffles.
The candles on the shelf dripped down onto the table runner and made a huge mess. They looked pretty, but is there such a thing as a candle you DON'T have to tend?
The friends brought nice wine and I had one glass, but for some reason I much prefer the taste of Coca-Cola. I'm not fancy.
I washed curtains and cushion covers. I NEVER get around to this so I am feeling quite pleased with my domestic self.
Now here's what I read in a Henri Nouwen Advent book: Community is being around people that drive you crazy.
For some reason this made me feel REALLY good. I thought I was the only person who sometimes doesn't like others. I guess it's normal. Whew!
