The ( First ) Seven Days Of Christmas

Sonata: One scarf knitted and worn in lightning weekend dash to England.
Two grandsons inspected , cuddled and delighted in .
Three SinterKlaas parties held at the playschool with customary overexcitement , paper hats and presents .
Four hailstorms cycled through .
Five Christmas presents bought and one ditto card written .
Six endives blanched , wrapped in ham and gratineed .... and manfully resisted by me , depite the tantalising toasty cheese smell wafting through the house .
Seven tiny patchwork stars sewn , which only leaves another sixteen to do ...

That, my dear, is how it should be. It's advent, after all.
But please don't ask me what I've done this season so far.

I'd have to say "nix'.

Liz said...

A Fridge Soup snowflake is all ready to come winging in your direction, if you email me with your snail-mail name and address. I've already had quite a few takers, and am about to post the first 'snow flurry' this afternoon! LOL

The spiritual connection in positively uncanny. Endives rolled in ham and covered with cheese sauce was on our plates twice this week.

And I'm jealous of your speed-knitting. It took me several weeks to my last scarf.

And clearly I haven't practiced writing in a while, either.
