Now that Christmas is past, can we start thinking about spring and gardening? Maybe we should wait until after next weekend?
Look! I got a rooster for Christmas! from our sweet friend Nellie.
Hope you all had a good Christmas. It was quiet here. We had a last minute change of plans, so it was just Poppy and me. I dashed out on Christmas Eve and bought groceries.
As it turned out, we had a good Christmas, and a good dinner on Christmas day. We had turkey, broccoli casserole, collards, turnips, cranberry sauce, and hot rolls...and for desert, a big sticky pecan pie. Even without the dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and sweet potato casserole it was more than enough.
after the dishes were washed, we walked...there's Smokey, on Poppy's left.
here, near the bog.
Two aprons cut out and ready to sew. I'm getting tired of using the same pattern and need a change. The little scalloped, reversible apron is really cute.
and this one too, I hope, in the blue daisy fabric. Trouble with these styles, especially the reversible apron is the amount of fabric needed.
Sewing is more fun when you have several things cut out.
Leaf raking continues...in fact, yesterday after snacking all day, then sitting down to a big meal, I was miserable...aha! just the thing to work off that piece of pecan pie...the rake! and so I did...raked leaves for one hour and twenty minutes. Today I have raked leaves for one hour!
Can't wait to read about Christmas Day at your place. Be there shortly.
P.S. Poppy got me a "Fitbit" for Christmas. Sure wish I could have been wearing it during all that leaf raking. It will take me until next year at this time to figure out how to use it. We need to download an app! "What the heck is an app", asked Poppy, "and you're asking me", replied Henny.
