Almost December

We all say it's hard to believe but it is almost December. I was asked quite a number of times this week if I had done the Christmas shopping or am I ready for Christmas - the answer predictably is no. However, I did get into the Christmas spirit yesterday ... ate some chocolate sultanas and nuts, helped Brandon punch holes and thread ribbon on cardboard stars, and prepared the making of Christmas cards from Dylan's drawings for our daughter Naomi. Brandon and Dylan are our two older grandsons , aged almost 5 and 3, so Christmas is a very exciting time for them.
This week, I also prepared a sample beaded star for the Hello Dollies Christmas party activity and am madly trying to make things for the Handmade Treasures Christmas Sale here next Saturday. I was excited that the feltfollies (last blog) were popular and I had ETSY sales on the day they were put in the ETSY shop.
This weekend, however, I am going to get started on writing on Christmas cards. That will be between going to the Christmas pageant at the Donkey Sanctuary this evening and helping at the Rotary market tomorrow. Our exchange student Riikka also has her friend Sodabeh (from Norway ) staying for the weekend. And everyone wonders what we do in "retirement" ?
