Warm Wishes for a Joyful Day

Merry Christmas

This is quite a different Christmas. I have lived in Michigan all my life and the season is usually cold. Many times there is snow for the holidays, sometimes more than we would like. The warm weather this year, while making it great for putting up outdoor decorations, just didn't get me motivated. In fact, the tree has outgrown the small number of decorations I have used in the past.

This is the first year our girls are both gone for the holidays, as are my parents and hubby's parents. So we are spending a quiet day at home, listening to some Christmas music and working a few Suduko puzzles. We are having another couple over for the evening, as they are "home alone" as well.

Last night, I was able to get these potholders completed. They are Christmas presents for tonight's guests and their daughters. I think they will like them.

This is my short post for today. Have a wonderful day and I'll be back to quilting next week.

Sounds like you had a perfect day Nancy! There were only four of us for Christmas dinner but we had a lovely time all the same.....

Merry Christmas, Nancy. So that we are empty nesters, we spend quite a few holidays "home alone," too. Our Christmas was lively, but our Thanksgiving was quiet (and lovely). Hope all your children were able to call and visit--we sometimes do group texts to have a "conversation" together, since we are all over the country.
