Below is a video how the twinkle lights look in our living room early in the morning - my favorite time to sit with a mug of hot tea snd just enjoy the decorations
Some of the grands were here yesterday. They did virtual school in the morning with their mom and then spent the afternoon here.
They helped Grandpa with his decorations in the front yard.
My husband picks the outdoor decorations and I do the indoor decorations
I’ll show a photo of them in their final arrangement all lit up soon.
I had a helper when to peel carrots and potatoes for supper.
She counted out the vegetables so we both had the same amount peel. But I’ve peeled a lot of veggies in my 50 or so years of cooking.
She was amazed how fast I could peel. I ended up peeling most of both piles but she did work hard. I assured her she would pick up speed if she kept practicing.
This roast beef supper was shared by 3 families - my daughter’s family, my parents and us - and there were enough leftovers for my husband and I to enjoy today.
The first of the month means going over bills and what we plan to spend and budget for.
We don’t have many bills and I keep track of finances in a binder, with a sheet of paper for each month.
I worked out the December budget yesterday morning.
Merry Christmas everyone 🎄
