Oh my was our trip to the grocery store a mess of people. I sure am glad that we shouldn't have to run and get anything else until after the holidays. Tomorrow will be our Christmas cantata at church (after being weather delayed from last week). I'm really excited because I think the choir sounds even better than usual this year. It will be a beautiful, wonderful, inspiring evening.
Yesterday I had a hair appointment and got my highlights touched up. She trimmed it up and also added some red lowlights. It looks really pretty. Its so fun to have a short stylish do after so many years long, and of basically ponytailing it everyday.
The planter is what I made to give my Gramma for Christmas. Its a copper planter that has a calla lilly bulb you can force in it. I made a polymer clay tree and put all the kids, their spouses, grandkids and their spouses and great-grandkids names on the leaves. There is plenty of room to add names in case I have forgotten any from the other side of grandkids and also to allow for the new additions sure to come to the family. Its not the nicest thing I've ever made, but I think she'll like it. The second picture is a close up of some of the leaves.
I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas/Holiday season. I plan on doing my best to take pleasure in each and every moment. I was refecting today on how lucky I am. If that stroke had been more severe, this year could have been much different in a horrible way. I am still here and I am healthy and doing everything I can to prevent a repeat incident. Life really is short and you can't possibly know when your end is near. Embrace each and every moment. Merry Christmas.
