Advent is the "new year" of the church calendar. And it always seems like a new year to me. Things in my head change and I begin to look at things differently. It isn't the end of the year to me, but the beginning of a new and exciting time. I guess that's why I love Christmas. And only 27 days to Christmas Day.
It was a beautiful sunrise this morning. I had to get a picture of it. But it was much prettier than the picture shows.
I had planned to do cleaning and decorating today but ended up not doing either. Instead I went to Rite Aid to pick up two of my medications. While I was there I saw some great sales and I picked up a few things we needed. But I also picked up some things we didn't need. I saw these cute Christmas plates the other day and today I decided to get them. They were $3 each. I got two dinner plates and two salad plates. We tend to use the smaller plates for breakfast or lunch. They are so cute!
These are for every day. I have pretty white china plates with gold rims and a holly pattern for good. I'll have to take a picture of them to show you.
The other thing we did was go to get Joe a haircut. He likes to go to Supercuts so we headed over there. The stylist he usually gets was off today, but the girl who did his hair did a terrific job. As he said, he has never gotten a bad cut there.
We came home and I thought I would get right on my chores and instead I fell asleep for a couple of hours. So...
instead of cooking dinner we ended up with left over turkey sandwiches. *sigh* Well, at least the turkey did not go to waste.
So now I'm going to type up the notes for my Bible Study tomorrow morning. It's another busy week for me. But I hope I can get some cleaning/decorating done. So until later...
