It was wonderful and at the end of it, I was truly looking forward to getting back to everything my regular life offers: my home, taking care of my family and my pups, working. Yes, I was even looking forward to going back to work. My little preschoolers didn't let me down today either. There were lots of big hugs and "Where were you, Miss Tina?"
Got my third pair of Bella mittens done, on the trip. I gave them to Mandy yesterday, on the way to see New Moon. She loved them. I'm so happy I could make them for her.
Guh is already done with Will's scarf. I just love this pattern. I think our boys are going to love it too!
We went to a paint-your-own-pottery place while we were on vacation. The lady who owned the shop introduced me to a new painting technique and this Christmas tree plate is the result. It was so messy and fun. You mix the paint 50-50 with water and put a drop of dish washing soap in it and then blow bubbles into the mixture until it overflows all over what you're painting. I loved the look of this as soon as I saw it. I can't wait to put Christmas cookies on this plate!
Hoping to put up the Christmas tree this Saturday. (this will be the latest I've put up our tree in years…) My mother-in-law will be here by then, coming to help out while Scott is recovering from hiatal hernia surgery, which is scheduled for December 1st. It's going to be a busy December again this year. (last December I had my hysterectomy…)
It's going to be busy, but we'll find time to fit in all the good stuff.
