Today is the first day of December and I have all my Fall decorations down and put away. Now it is on to Christmas decorations. We aren't going to put every thing up this year....there will only be one tree, here in the gathering room, center pieces on the dining room table and kitchen table. A few assorted items on other tables around the house, wreaths on all three doors, candles in the windows, and Christmas CD's in the player. No fireplace mantel decorations, no large flocked tree in the living room and gathering room, and no small trees in the three bedrooms.
But...we will be thankful for our health, our home, our son and DIL, and our wonderful grandchildren. Wayne and I will spend a very quiet Christmas here at home, as the doctor's do not think it wise for him to travel this year, with the urinary tract problem and the COPD. My shopping is done. I need to wrap everything and get it all in the mail this next week.
Wayne is having his first cataract surgery this Monday on the right eye and the left eye done the following Monday. We are also anticipating prostate surgery sometime this month. He has been busy all week doing things in the yard, getting wood where I can handle it for the fireplace and the wood stove. Making sure both vehicles are serviced and in good condition, as I will be doing most, or all, of the driving.
Today was very windy, however, the temp did get up into the lower 60's, but it sure looked much colder from my kitchen window. It really looked like it could snow, but the temp was way too high.
Well, I've rambled enough for today. Time to stitch a bit and watch the Missouri/Oklahoma game. Of course, we are hoping Missouri wins!
