I didn't have the xmas quilt done for Christmas eve, but one of my brother that lives in the same city as I do won the quilt. So I finished the quilt on Christmas and delived it to him. He had cooked dinner for his finance and I ended up eating with them. They were both very happy they won the quilt.
I also managed to get the last minute pillow cases done for Christmas eve. The nieces and nephews were happy with their pillow cases. Since I was in a hurry I did put an accent strip on only one of the cases.
On Monday morning I had to spend time cleaning up the house because my brother and his finance were stopping over to drop off a zipper for a dress of her's that needed replaced. I finally did get the microwave cleaned - it was sad! Now every time I open it I smile. It is a small thing, but it just looks so much better.
Another job I was glad to get done was putting my remodeling photos in order and into the photo album. I found a good deal on some photo ablums and all I really wanted was the pages and not the albums. The refill pages are so expensive! I am glad to have this job done. Now when I get more pictures to add it will be easy to do. I did not get the baseboard caulked and painted, but it just did not work into my schedule. I was so tired I had to to what I could.
Here are three of the five deer that were in my backyard Monday. The other two are in the brush so you can't see them in the photo. I got up at 1:30 this morning when nature was calling and there were three deer in my front flower bed looking for something to eat. I opened the door and shooed them on. They just looked at me and then slowly wandered off.
