w e d n e s d a y



It's promising to be another busy week this week.  No more after-school activty clubs, but there's still Z's panto tomorrow.  I'm running around trying to finish my Christmas shopping.  There are still a few on my list that I'm still trying to figure out what to get for.  I have managed to wrap up a number of the presents that I'd gotten.  I love wrapping!  Lazy bum that I am, I still have not gone through the bags and boxes of things that I want to have cleared out before my parents arrive... so there's that for the next couple of days.  The weekend will see us helping distribute goodie bags to a home for the elderly.  I really think that it's a worthy exercise for the kids. Maybe it can be something that we can do every year starting now.  

Very busy, but loving it... and really looking forward to the holidays!

I don't remember the title of this piece of art (above), but it was something I saw when we were in the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) in Brisbane last year. There's something about it that I really like.

It's the eyes on your art piece and a face that looks like it has lived much. Interesting. Ah, Christmas....the panic will be setting in soon as even though my kids have chosen not to buy anything this year, I know they will still buy mom and dad so then that makes me having to buy on my limited retirement budget, but I love buying, wrapping, and giving. This year though, I went with sewing something for the DIL's and Daughter and ordered calendars with their family's photos on each page. Seems since we no longer have little ones at home, Christmas just isn't the same, but I still celebrate the birth of Jesus. :) That is great that the kids are taking to the elderly. I should be doing things like that.

I still have a few more items to buy, but haven't been very motivated as it has been so cold here. Wishing you a very Happy Holiday season. Hopefully, your week isn't too stressful.

Yes, the eyes are so expressive. That's what I notice . . .

I hope you have caught up with all the Christmas list of things to do. I finally did some cooking yesterday. I think I'm just about organised. Have a beautiful Christmas.
