Just for Fun

Self shopping is fun!

Woo-hoo! Picked up a couple of stocking stuffers for myself yesterday. I always help the hubs out a little and pick up a few things here and there. It’s a tried-and-true method of getting things I like/want/need and making holiday shopping less stressful for him! Do you buy your own gifts?

New Christmas Ornaments 2021

Every year I love making something for each family member. Some years I knit something. This year I made ornaments. The blue one is made from card stock I found in a drawer upstairs. The gnome required a few purchased products–a wooden egg; tiny red pom-poms for noses; felt, bells and ribbon for the hats; and polyester stuffing for the beards. Oh. And don’t forget hot glue sticks. Can’t make much of anything without hot glue!

Kitty Hide and Seek

Even though our black Bombay cat Safa is elderly, he still plays hide and seek under the covers of my bed, for instance, under a chair or in the big box that the cat condo came in. (He mostly ignores the latter.)

Late Fall Birthday Party

My husband built a train of plastic fifty-gallon barrels pulled by a garden tractor years ago. We drag it out for special occasions like birthdays. A generation of grands is enjoying it now. Such fun!

The Birds

I live in a new neighborhood, where about ten houses are under construction at all times. On one of my walks through the neighborhood this fall, the birds lined up on a dirt hill to watch me pass. I hope I made their evening, as they made mine.
