Nice as it was, I'm glad it's in the rear window. We had some new traditions this year and some really nice moments in the kitchen laughing and talking. Everyone was happy with their gifts. Then there were naps and the dishwasher was run several times and then it was over. And, all that's left is a big pile of pots, pans and dishes that live in hard to reach places. I refused to crawl around on the floor or climb a step stool to put them away.
I worked a full day on Monday...sort of. Mostly I unpacked my stuff at my new desk. I brought home two large boxes of personal stuff that there is no room for. The team had lunch and I got home around the same time Rob did and called it a day. I worked half days Tuesday and Wednesday and spent every spare minute working on the quilts for the greenhouse, which were finished on time and I believe have kept the greenhouse warm during this hard freeze. Thursday, we finished our freeze prep and Friday, we went out for a last minute shopping jaunt that we both enjoyed very much. Saturday we took a quick trip to the grocery and I did as much cooking as I could and yesterday, we had a nice relaxed day.
It started with pull-apart, or monkey, or bubble bread, depending on where you are.
