Yesterday was another warmer day and it made for a nice drive to see our friends. They live in a location that gets a fair bit of snow in the winter and they have very little on the ground for this time of the year.
Yesterday morning I went through all the pictures on my lap top and deleted about 7200 pictures. When I take a picture of something I usually snap a dozen or more pictures, use the best one and fix it up (or not). The rest sit in a folder waiting for me to delete. The good one waits for me to move it into its proper file. I really should do this daily or weekly as it took me almost three hours to clean up the files.
Each year around Christmas time, we give these friends about 60 jars of home canning from our stock. They so enjoy getting this gift each year and faithfully give us back all the empties for a “refill”.
We had a lovely visit and talked about many things from his work putting together modular homes, to grandchildren. Yesterday’s conversation included decluttering, knitting, crocheting and sewing. They are thinking about selling to get a bit bigger house and a smaller yard in the city. She is alone up to 6 weeks at a time and does not drive and wishes to be closer to shopping while he is away.
I have been knitting on the bonnet to go with the jacket and am picking up the stitches to do the crown. Next is a pair of booties and that will be done. I bet I won’t be taking that project with me so will cram the blanket into the suitcase and take it to work on.
Today I am off to the city to shop and when I get home, I have some things to do. The count down is on to Christmas and getting ready to head out to our son’s place. There is a prime rib dinner Dec 24 which we will cook on the BBQ and turkey dinner on Dec 25 of which I will do the turkey. Both dinners are at Daughter’s.
