In all the busyness of the season, it's hard to slow down long enough to enjoy all the beauty that surrounds us at this time of the year. I'm no meteorologist, but it does seem like the sunrises and sunsets are the most stunning at this time of the year. Perhaps it is that way to make us pause and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.
The beaches are lovely as well - a great place for a walk and quiet time. There is so much driftwood from the fires last year that has made its way down to the beaches.
The narcissus are blooming in the yard and in the amaryllis is blooming inside.
There has been lots of entertaining going on, but we managed to slip away for a couple of days to see Reba, Brooks and Dunn in Las Vegas with my sister, brother and their spouses. It was such a great show. The show was the night before Reba flew out to sing at the Bush funeral. Now....that's a tight schedule!
We had little ones over the other night to help decorate the tree and go look at Christmas lights. The top of the tree is pretty bare, but the bottom is loaded with ornaments!
There hasn't been a lot of stitching going on here. I did get the final stitches in on the newest grandchild's Christmas stocking.
I'm way behind on my clues for the Quiltville Mystery, Good Fortune, but I am trying to sew a few each week.
Christmas cards are on the agenda for today so best get to them.....
I'll leave you with this cute lawn decoration we spotted on our trip to the desert.
