Yesterday was a such a busy day I barely had time to just sit and rest other than at the doctors office, the car and in the evening. I mentioned I had my eye doctor check up in the morning and it went well. The swelling in the retina is gone, the eye drops are now reduced to two drops a day for two weeks and then done. Another visit in two months to make sure it has stayed healed. All good news – from there we went to David’s Burgers for some nice big burgers and good fries – the book store to pick up a one last gift and home we went.
I had cookie dough all ready for when the girls got here and for several hours we made cookies and listened to Aniya jabber – that little girl can talk and talk and talk.
Rubbing her hands in glee – what shall she do next! she was very pleased with the candy canes.
Melanie and Aniya
Aniya loved her gift box – shown on yesterdays post – and she seemed to think decorations are toys! LOL – no toys in my house any more. She loves her apron and had forgotten it so Melanie ran back to the house to get it – only 2 miles down the road so not far to go.
About half the cookies went home with them thank goodness as I still have one batch of cookies to make and coffee cake on Christmas Eve. Some of these well end up in the freezer!! I do not want too much temptation sitting out saying “eat me”
If you look at yesterday’s post you will see that I did get a couple more hexies sewn – when I actually sat down I’m not sure! this one is taking awhile to finish for sure!
Over the last couple evenings more done on the Postage Stamp and more done last night too – my way of unwinding – and I did need it LOL Today I will finish up the one present I am working on. Make one more batch of cookies – that is it for cookies. I need to stop today or tomorrow at the store to pick up things for Christmas Eve – Melanie and Ric will be over in that evening for finger foods and a little gift exchange – and that is pretty much it – we don’t do a big meal on Christmas day – I’m not even sure what I will be making – I will need to decide soon though I guess. We used to do a big meal but now it is mainly just us as Ric’s brother will be in town visiting so they will do Christmas Day with his family. We might go see a movie – we do that a lot on Christmas afternoon in recent years!
