Let it be heard throughout the land; I’m taking the day off (as much as someone raising a three-year-old can do such a thing). We had a wonderful time last night and, although I am not the least bit hungover today (surprise!), I am tired and I don’t think I will even do one load of laundry. Yes, the washer and dryer deserve a day off, too; they’ve been working hard after all. People don’t have enough empathy where appliances are concerned.
The party favors were a hit. As you can see, they are nice silver framed ornaments anyone would be happy to hang on the family Christmas tree. We added a little gag though and took out the anonymous photos that came in the frames and replaced them with pictures of Jon and Curt, the CEO and President, respectively, of Jon Wayne Construction. Everyone got a chuckle out of it and Jon and Curt were particularly pleased that the photos turned back time ten or so years.
This is what they look like now. Jon and his always lovely wife, Teresa.
And Curt with his equally beautiful partner Jill. Honestly, I think they all look great, years, schmears.
When we arrived home, we found this lovely ornament in the mail. My amazingly talented mother-in-law Carolyn (remember Pint's quilt?) made the covering for the ornament on her fancy dancy embroidery machine. It now holds the proud honor of sole ornament on the tree. Thanks, Mom!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a day off to begin. Clean-the-refrigerator-out-stock-that-will-be-soup is spreading its homey scent throughout the house and a sofa and blanket are calling my name. What’s that? They’re getting lonely without me? Gotta go, I’d hate to upset the housewares.
