Friday was an interesting day. Started up bright and early to be out to the grandkids school for their Christmas concert which was supposed to start at 8:30am. That certainly is early. We were there in lots of time and it was a joy to see not only Mieka and Adrian do their parts but also all of the other kids as well. The youngsters do put their hearts into the performance.
Christmas presents all wrapped up yesterday (Saturday) and the ones to be shipped are all boxed up and ready to be sent later today. They will not arrive until after Christmas but that will just mean another day of opening presents for them. Cards have all been sent so now it is just sit back and wait until Christmas arrives. Not so sure if we will put up a tree this year. There just doesn’t seem to be a lot of room in the living room! There are now two large plants in the front window which seem to be taking up an awful lot of space. One is a “Money Tree” that we got as a small plant from Costco a few years ago which is now about 5 feet tall and the other is either a grapefruit or lemon seed that I planted 4 to 5 years ago and it is now also about 5 feet tall. Neither have lived up to their names though - no money from the tree and no fruit from the other one.
Supposed to be heading out to the farm to help decorated their tree. Don is very traditional and takes the kids out to a cut your own tree farm and they pick out just the right one. We will be picking up the “out-laws” on the way so they can be involved as well.
