I put my Christmas Tree up yesterday, but it was missing something...something red. I had planned on buying some small red ornaments the next time I went shopping, maybe later today...but I just hadn't gotten around to it yet when Jimmy came in with the mail and to my surprise, there was a package from Doubleknot. When I opened the padded envelope up...there was the red that I needed for my tree. Doubleknot had crochetted and sent me 6 small red & white Christmas stockings for my tree. Thank you Doubleknot, you are SO SWEET and I will treasure these little stockings forever. Doesn't my tree look pretty now!!!
What a perfect day it has been...It started with a nice snowfall that covered the ground and turned my world white & pure...and then the gift from Doubleknot. Our neighbors, on all sides, have outside Christmas decorations that looked so much more Christmasy than usual today with the blanket of snow. The temps are above freezing, so the snow won't be here much longer, so I'll enjoy it while it lasts. It seems that I am about the only person around here that has always loved snow...You see, where I come from we didn't have snow, so it's a real treat for me. I came from Southern California, from a dry arid climate and desert heat.
