Last week I was happily sewing and singing Christmas carols when a friend shocked me into reality with the words, “Christmas is only 3 weeks away.”
Well that snapped me into shape!! I took a look of the mess around me…
…like Christmas ornaments sitting everywhere-except where they were supposed to be…
…and the chaos of my sewing room.
I decided to get busy. I got a few gifts wrapped…
…then wrapped a few more…
I then decorated the tree.
I hustled about the house with visions of Christmas cookies in my head. Next weekend two of the granddaughters are coming over to help bake. I am super excited to have their help and spend time with them.
Then the unthinkable happened…
…our oven quit!
The repairman said it would be about $350 to repair (something about an electronic ignition and a computer board!?) and since it was 13 years old, we may need to think about getting a new stove.
What! Are you kidding! We have about 25 people coming for Christmas Eve dinner!!
So…off we went to find a new one…
…and we did. Nothing fancy, just a basic stove and oven which will be here in time for Christmas and Christmas cookie baking.
Guess I know what I am getting for Christmas this year!
(and I am very happy)
Christmas blessing to you all.
