Everything in this world is topsy-turvy right now but I still live in the land of the free because of the brave.
This rendition of God Bless the USA brings tears to my eyes.
I hope you celebrate America’s Independence Day with pride.
Yes, yes, yes, I’m back home!
But I can’t rest just yet. Our daughter and family are coming here on Friday for Thanksgiving. They will be here for the weekend then go to our S-I-L’s family for a few days and then head back to Colorado
It will be so much fun to see them again so soon (since I just left them) but I have a few things to do by Friday evening.
Are you expecting guests for Thanksgiving?
Did you do anything special to ring in the new year?
Mr. Aitch and I had a relaxing evening at home. We toasted in the new year then went to bed shortly after midnight. We are such party animals. NOT!
I did finally get a Holiday project finished right in time for the new year… 3-d Moravian stars.
I bought this kit that makes two 20-point stars several years ago and thought it would be a fun thing to do with the grands. And then decided I would make them myself.
Good thing, too as the limited instructions were very difficult for me to understand without going online for help.
But I soldiered on and finished both stars.
I hung them in the dormer windows in the two front bedrooms Monday evening.
We live on a hill and it’s hard to get a picture of our house from the street but here is a shot of the front. You might be able to make out the stars in the half-round windows.
I just might leave them there all year.
