It’s Christmas Eve morning, and it’s Thursday, so I’m following Nerd in the Brain’s lead and posting for 3 Things Thursday.
But before I list my three things, I want to share some Christmas photos. My mother and I had hoped to go to the Festival of Trees before I left Michigan, but we were unable to do so. But Dave and Cathy went to one in Davenport, Iowa, and Dave has shared some of the pictures from their trip.
Now on to my three things:
- I’ve had a lovely week with Dave, and we still have two to go. We had quite an outing on Tuesday, including an exploration of the ONE coffee shop in downtown Muscatine. I hope to post about the shop next week. Oh, and Dave and I both got haircuts! 🙂
2. The cloud of depression has lifted somewhat. Enough for me to out-walk the lethargy. And to feel like I can face the family’s Christmas Eve celebration. Dave’s sister is working on Christmas Day, so we are heading to his other sister’s family’s home for a celebration at noon today. I’ve never been with Dave’s family all at the same time. Some of them I haven’t even met before. But now, it doesn’t seem so overwhelming.
It also means we will have a quiet Christmas. Dave and I will go to the hospital tomorrow and meet Cathy for lunch, followed by a quiet Christmas dinner. Rumor has it that I will make tuna pot pie. Hey, don’t laugh. It may not sound like much to you, but Dave and his sister are really looking forward to my concoction. 😉
3. I’m ready to practice my machine quilting today, which means I might be able to spend part of Christmas working on my grandson’s quilt.
Wishing everyone a warm holiday season.
