Dave and I had a fabulous holiday and we hope everyone we know did as well - we love those holidays where we can pretend we are retired and can do whatever we want!
We took Thursday as Eating-And-Watching-Movies Day. Friday we avoided leaving the house because there is nothing we need badly enough to co-mingle with frenzied shoppers... so we just stayed in and worked.
We both got a lot accomplished this weekend. Dave got the tiles cut and placed in the upstairs bath and just so he would get some fresh air, he went out in the yard and bagged several tons of leaves (if you look at the yard, you would never know it...the joys of a wooded lot...but if you see it, tell him how great it's looking anyway...bless his heart. He says it's better than mowing in the summer). He also got a lot done on his projects in his office.
I put together my new computer desk, which improved the "guest room" a great deal and got the Christmas Covers4Kids quilt to the binding stage - should have a finished picture of it later this week.
It's both amazing and annoying how quickly four days can go by!
Earlier this month I went down to San Antonio for the departmental retreat in New Braunfels and, since my friend Dee wanted to go (again), we stopped by the Snake Farm, where I got some great pictures of not-snakes that I wanted to share - I didn't want the month to slip completely by without documenting something other than our last trip!
