Is it just me or did Thanksgiving and Christmas just seem to fly by. It was all gone before I knew it. All that is left today is the putting away of Christmas decorations, taking out the trash full of wrapping and doing laundry that accumulated during the festivities. Normally I leave my tree up until the first of the year. But it is so warm out today.....68 degrees......a Christmas tree light up and sparkly just feels off in this weather. We are supposed to reach the upper 70's tomorrow. I spent the day doing errands and packing up my special little ornaments I have collected over the years. I saved all my tissue from gift bags for packaging and I always save the gift bags that I receive gifts in.........well if they are really nice ones and I reuse them next year with a new name tag. We were blessed with good food and wonderful gifts this year...........sadly no snow though. My mom and dad gifted all of us with a platter of yummy candies of every kind. All home made! I just love those kinds of gifts. I made some more quilt candle mats to give to my family as gifts. I hope you all had a wonderful Merry Christmas........forgive me for not being able to tell each and every one of you in person.
