My Christmas Tablecloth

100_4970

I love to use this quilt every year as my tablecloth at Christmas.  I did not make the quilt and to be honest I have had it so long I don’t really remember who did.  I love it though.  It looks so pretty on our table.  I took the picture of it on the floor because I wanted you all to really see it good.  I think if quilts could talk, this one would say cheerful, happy things.

Monday, I did some grocery shopping for our Christmas meal.  We visited some with the Horns which is alway fun.  Yesterday, I worked some more on my sewing machine.  I am still not successful in getting it to work properly.  I hope to work on it more today.  I have many sewing projects I want to start on.  I might have to get Hubby to look at it and see what he can do.

We are getting a drizzle of rain here this morning.  Temperatures are warm-33 degrees.  Hopefully it will just be rain and no ice.   There is a chance of snow for tomorrow and  predictions for a winter storm coming in on Friday night.  If this happens, our Christmas meal plans will have to change.  Chuck and his family are supposed to come tomorrow and Jess and her family are coming on Sunday.  It is so hard to plan things in the winter.  You never know what the weather will bring. 

We are doing “half school” today and tomorrow.  Then on Friday, we will start our Christmas break.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Pond

I thought the pond looked very pretty this morning.  The sun was shining and the water looks beautiful.    We need to enjoy this sunshine while we can.  Weather reports are calling for a winter storm tomorrow with significant amount of accumulation.  The girls are excited about this.  Sledding!  Prayerfully we will get to meet tomorrow for Ladies Study.  We are going to meet earlier in the day to avoid anyone getting caught in the snow.  In the 6 years we have been doing this study, I don’t think it has ever been this long since we met.    I counted it up yesterday.  This Friday will make 7 weeks.   No wonder I miss those  ladies.  Today will be filled with the usual things.  School, house cleaning, cooking, eating.  Enjoying the love of family.  I pray I never take the little things for granted.  They are all gifts from God.  Feel free to sit on my porch for a while.  Bring a cup of coffe or tea and enjoy the view.  Warning though, it can become habit forming. God Bless.
