This afternoon Anne and Les came up with Kathy (Anne’s mother) to take the mommas to Bronner’s. That is a Christmas store with everything you could ever want to decorate your home or give as gifts to friends and family. As it was a Saturday the crowds were tremendous. But we did manage to get around side stepping and excusing continually. Now the rule was each child would follow their own mother keeping track of where they were and in contact with their spouse as to which section each was in. Now as the mothers we were able to wander all over oohing and ahhing at all the lovely things available. This was great because we didn’t have to worry about keeping track of the kids after years of having that job.
I learned a long time ago to put what I thought I might buy in my cart as I saw it because I could never go back and find it later. But I didn’t learn that lesson fully because I had to rely on my son to find these things again.
I really had to have them for my kids and one for Kathy.
They are plaster so they can’t hang on the tree but I’m sure they will find a place for them.
My next purchase was a musical snow globe with angel in it for Jay’s Aunt because she has never forgotten us at Christmas.
This was my the last thing I bought (for me).
It is hanging on my front (kitchen) door.
So now the wreath I bought to go on the door is now on the kitchen wall.
I think this is about the extent of purchases for this year.
I have to remember that all this stuff will have to go with me when I finally move.
I started the sequin train the other day but it is going very slow.
The sequins are small, I have four forms to put them on.
I really have to get going on it if I want it done for Christmas.
Well I wore my new scarf today that Pammie made me and the kids took the mommas to lunch after the shopping spree. We sat talking about holidays past, relatives we seldom see, and the people we have lost. But it was a good not a sad time and I think it helped both mommas to talk about it.
Well my friend It is back to the choo choo train for a while this evening, a little bit of the idiot box next, then off to that nice warm bed. Know I’m thinking of my friends in difficulties and hoping for the best . Have a good weekend.
