Hello Blogland!! How is everyone this weekend????? My heart is still heavy but life is moving on. Our children gave their Christmas program this morning at church. It was so sweet to see them perform. We have several budding “hams” in that group!
Lots of outfits to catch up with! I’ve been a bit hunkered down fighting off some sort of crud. Tis the season!! I haven’t got time to be sick!! We are feeding the homeless (our church) this Friday and I have 100 Red Velvet Peppermint cupcakes to make and a big pan of rice for the chili the hubster is making . I know chili and rice sounds a tad odd for a christmas dinner but it was requested. He makes it for the weekly feeding once a month and our “guests” love it. A church next to the parking lot where we set up to feed has allowed us to use their hall and kitchen so we can have a nice Christmas party for these folks.
So hunkered down over the laptop with a cup of eggnog and a piece of fruitcake–away we go!
I got my hair cut Wednesday. Another step closer to natural silver! My hairdresser says it’ll all out by February and I can be rocking my Jamie Lee Curtis look!!
Friday was our work Christmas party. I work in Engineering for the Department of Public Works for a large military base. We had our party in the roads and grounds shop, surrounded by equipment. Casual was the name of the game!! The shoes were just thrifted this week for $4–they are Timberland maryjanes and SO COMFORTABLE- they had never been worn as the little loop for the button was loose. A bit of glue fixed that up.
My necktie was my Dad’s. It’s a vintage wool from Scotland in his clan tartan-Ferguson. It’s rather short in length and didn’t fit my 6ft+ nephews so I inherited it.
Here’s the blingy–I’ve been pulling out my vintage Christmas pins.I hope everyone has a wonderful week and I’ll be back on Tuesday!!!! I’ve got to go pick out my Christmas gift from the hubster. He’s decided I need a tablet device so I can surf and read blogs when I’m laid up in the recliner!!
I’m linking up with Visible Monday!
