Nearly holiday time

Last weekend, we had our Escape Artists’s show here at our place. This was the third one that we have done this way. It was great fun as usual, we had more visitors, the weather cooperated, and we had good sales, which is always the icing on the cake.

We had paintings all over the main floor walls. And on several surfaces as well. We had a good selection of pieces, all different types and styles. That is what always makes the shows so interesting. We now have people who look for our show which is very gratifying.

I am almost done clearing up after, putting everything back, tidying up, rehanging things, rearranging etc. Just have the family photos to put back. I managed to get some baking done, and will do some more this week. With the kids coming home, I want to have lots of goodies on hand! Fatten everyone (except me) up.

We are having one of those weird winters. The snow from the previous post is essentially gone. There is a bit left in the shaded areas. We had a dust last night, but that is it. It has been mild and sunny. It makes winter that much shorter, but I worry about the garden. The plants need snow cover. If it suddenly takes a dive temperature wise, they will be damaged a lot. But Mother Nature has her own plans, so we can simply go along with them. The mild weather has been a real treat and it could just stay this way for the next 4 months.

Just a couple more days until the winter solstice and the days start to get longer. That also is great. The short days start to recede. And then Christmas in a week. All cards and parcels are sent, most shopping done, most cleaning up done. Just a few bits and pieces, so it should be a good week.

Tomorrow is our Field House group lunch. We have been meeting at the FH for 30 years, doing the classes, then coffee afterwards. We are going to the Faculty Club. They have Christmas pudding! We are all looking forward to that – everyone’s favourite.

So a season of family and friends, ones near and far. I am looking forward and enjoying. Oh yes, there is still the tree to put up. That is for tomorrow!
