I just love it!
I battled the crowds (not bad) at the post office today, and decided that the best way to get through it was to keep a smile on my face. I've heard that when you talk on the phone you should always smile, because then people can hear it in your voice. It does seem to help. I had a very nice chat with the lady behind me in line, and the gentleman in front of me was very pleasant and peaceful.
I spent the early afternoon baking more coffee breads: I do love doing it, in spite of Barker's huge appetite for them! C and I spent a couple of hours yesterday evening cleaning out our pantry, which is HUGE, and found a great spot to cool the coffee breads: up high and way out of Barker's reach.
We went out to dinner tonight with our friends Keith and Molly. There is a new restaurant on the Gainesville Square called Scott's on the Square and it is quite nice. Both C and I enjoyed the beef tenderloin topped with crabmeat and bearnaise sauce: yummm!
When we got home I finished our Christmas cards: YIKES! I thought I'd never get done. It's always such a relief to have the cards and the breads done. (Somehow i don't think Christmas was meant to be this way, do you?) Maybe tomorrow the breads will be finished. I longed to get out into the studio and do some dyeing this evening, but it just didn't happen....maybe tomorrow.
C found this darling Towhee on the patio this evening:
I love Towhees. We usually have 2-3 families who live nearby year round. They seem to have disappeared this summer, returning about a month ago. When I first spotted the males years ago, I thought I was seeing Baltimore Orioles. This poor fellow must have been startled and flown up and hit against our sliding glass doors. I really do hate it when that happens!
Tell me how your day has been. I have so many visitors now who do not comment. I don't want to scare you away, but I'd love to hear from you. Sometimes I feel like I'm just chattering away to myself..........and I do that all too often here at home! Take a minute and say hello!!
