COUNTING THE DAYS —-

even though the weather outside doesn’t feel like it, Christmas will soon be here! The temperature on my back porch is 75, and it was almost that high yesterday.  I have made a few things for the grandchildren who live near here.   Truman and Boyd like to do artwork, so I made them ArtBooks with white and colored cardstock pages for them to do their drawing, and ornaments for their tree.IMG_0850

And I received a nice surprise today, a red poinsettia from one of my Sunday School classmates, Barbara Askew.  It isbeautiful, and thanks, Barbara.  If I don’t see you again before Christmas Day, hope it is a merry, happy day, as we celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

See you soon.  Thanks for popping in today.

    I love the art books and ornaments and hats. It’s so nice that you can make handmade gifts for the grandkids. And lucky you! a poinsettia plant for the holidays! In Wi we are digging out from snowstorm Alice.
