Dreadfully sorry to have left some of you fretting about my where abouts yesterday.
Sometimes a girl just needs to play hooky .. .right?
Our family was over on the 27th and since we coaxed them to stay until bedtime . . .
I had no chance to do my evening post for the following morning.
More about the 27th tomorrow.
Pretend today is the 26th and I'm posting on the evening of the 25th.
My beloved had been full of mystery and intrigue the days just prior to Christmas.
He announced he didn't need any help this year ...
which suited me fine since I had my own fish to fry.
On the 24th he came to inquire about a bow.
I told him I was using ribbons this year for part of the fancy-shmancy Christmas in the bungalow.
I told him there were a few at the bottom of the Christmas wrapping paper box . ..
and as you can see . ..
he found them.
What didn't happen quite as quickly was the sewing.
I left it sitting on my sewing counter hoping the elves would have it done in the morning but still it sat.
When I opened up my Christmas present . . .
my beloved announced with a rather winning smile that they tossed in a pack of free thread.
It was JD green.
Now .. .
I don't plan on sewing JD green overalls for all the menfolk in the household.
but at least one lil' farm hand will have perfectly matching thread for his workbench apron.
And so anyways . . .
that is just the typical thing that made me smile these last few days.
