Day sure didn't end normally!

Another wickedly cold day today. DH and I went shopping today. He did the grocery shop, while I did some last minute shopping... DH doing the groceries was not the best plan of action... Oh well.... 8-)

Well, here is our tree. It will have to do for this year... I forgot to buy some new silver garland that I had planned for this year. Our other was pretty ratty last year, so I chucked it out...

I realized that I don't have the room in this house to make a large village (as I could in our old house). So, I guess I will not be buying any new pieces next year unless I figure something else out for displaying it... Here it is tucked into a shelf on our wall-unit... I know my windmill doesn't really "fit"
with the rest, but I had to buy it last year. 8-)
Last night we went to DD1+2'd apartment to celebrate DS's 21st Birthday. It was a last minute idea of theirs because they are working on his actual birthday today. Grandma and Grandpa were there too! 8-)

Of course moi had camera in hand all evening, and I took a "not so flattering" photo of DD1, which I was going to keep... until she tackled me for the camera to erase it! DD2 took said camera from me, and proceeded to snap photos of the attack. So, DD1 never ended up with my camera, but I agreed I would erase it to end the wrestle... 8-)
Our old neighbor popped by with this lovely white floral arrangement in a Christmas mug for us... Just beautiful!!! Can you pick out the two doves? Thanks D+J!!! 8-)

It is now 3AM, I typed most of this post around 9:30pm, and was just about to publish it, when the fur-girls got into another domestic right under my comp desk and chair!!! To make a long story short, I ended up at the hospital for 4 hours cause we thought I needed a couple of stitches.... Home now, no stitches, but a tetanus, good cleaning and bandaging, and an antibiotic prescription to fill tomorrow... Time for bed now... Do you think this gets me out of food prep for Christmas Day? LOL!!! 8-)

Good Morning Norma, your decorations look lovely. So sorry to hear you got the worst of that domestic dispute!! Going to hospital for such as you received was an excellent idea, can't be too careful with stuff like that.
It's been such fun doing the NYE countdown with you, hoping you and yours have theb best Christmas season ever. Big hugs, Finn

Ouch! I'm guessing that you arm or hand got injured?? Good thing you went to the ER to get it checked out, better safe than sorry. I think you better rest a lot today :^)
