My husband’s company holds a Christmas party every year, specifically for the children of the employees.
And they walk away with all sorts of goodies.
The little elves continue the celebration at home.
And on to the next day as they head off to school.
I finally gave up on the idea of writing another chapter this week in favour of cleaning my house. I’ve just been too busy with teaching and holiday stuff. Tomorrow I need to make 3 batches of cutout Christmas cookies for the annual party that my English classes have come to expect. (We decorate the cookies together and they take them home).
I also need to make shrimp-mushroom risotto – which I am going to blog about – for the tree-decorating party we will be have with our Bible Talk group tomorrow night. It’ll be a festive holiday potluck, and I promised risotto.
Anyway, once I gave up on trying to fit the chapter in too, I relaxed a little. And now my floors and toilets are clean, so I feel civilised.
Alison from Writing, Wishing, and Greta from GFunkified are nearing the end of their year-long photo series. This week’s prompt is pair which is sort of a no-brainer for Alison since she just had twins.
Well, I’ve been wanting to show you (for a long time now) this set of silverware that we got from my husband’s aunt, which is, I don’t know how many generations old. It must be date back to when the people were smaller, but their cutlery mammoth.
We have 6 sets in all, I think, and they are real silver so they are quite heavy. This photo does not do it justice, but I wanted to show you the enormity of the silverware. Here is a pair of forks, the lefthand is the unpolished silver one, and the right is the largest dinner fork we have in the house.
Here they all are together. They look larger in real life. I swear I thought I was in Gulliver’s Travels when I first took them out of the linen bag. This is them next to the largest fork, spoon and knife we have in our silverware drawer.
For the next step, I’ll have to polish them and actually use them!
Provided we can fit them in our mouths.
How are you this holiday season? Tell me in the comments, if you wish! 🙂
