After this morning's heart-in-mouth experience I was leery about traversing through the rest of the day but it actually turned out to be quite pleasant! First & foremost I finished an old CS project & it's a keeper for me : ) This is one of the old projects I did in another stitching life (my second one) but for some reason I did not stitch one part of it ... the little stitched button on the right side. I think I remember thinking I'd be "creative" & use a real button there but today I put in the 39 stitches to finish it per the pattern chart & now here it is!
I bought this little tray at a half-off sale a couple weeks ago & had the wax candle with the tea light from last year. The tea light no longer worked so today I grunged a new one. All's well that ends well : )
I also spent an hour or two on the phone with a favorite aunt & cousin. I don't get to do that very often so I really enjoyed visiting with them : )
I made meatballs & marinara sauce for dinner. John had a meatball sandwich & I just had a plate of the meatballs ... both with melted mozzarella. Yum! While we ate that we watched a Christmas special DVD from The History Channel which we both enjoyed immensely.
I did a bit of cleaning today & in between everything else that was going on I looked at 12,406 gingerbread items on Etsy. Yes, I really did! I think it ended up being 250 pages. I'd look at so many pages & then walk away & do something & then come back & pick up where I left off. Most of it I got to pass by quickly but I filled my cart with several. Before starting this post I went through my cart & weeded out most of the 40 things I thought were "had to haves." I'm still thinking on the others.
After dinner John & I went to Office Depot to buy our son a new laptop for Christmas. Will be picking that up tomorrow after they tweak it a bit. We got to see some pretty Christmas light on the way there & back.
Had a cup of killer hot chocolate thanks to my wonderful hot chocolate maker which I mentioned in a previous post.
I also found a nativity I like & I ordered that.
And that was my day! I hope your day was as lovely : )
