I call this time of year - the few days after Halloween, “pre-Christmas”! Yeah, I am one of those. Thanksgiving is the halfway point between Halloween and Christmas. And my eyes are on the prize! I get several days off from work for Christmas, and every day until Christmas, I count down and will express gratitude for all the things that I have. All the little moments I am able to experience, and all the friends that have stuck around year after year. The dude that never anticipated he’d live on a farm, tucked away in a fairytale setting. Each day until Christmas on my Instagram feed, I am devoting one post to the things I am grateful for.
I am starting off by expressing some gratitude today. My grandmas. Both of them. One showed me how to make old lady apple dolls, crochet, and how to look fancy in winter hats. The other taught me how to sew, grow a garden, and make red eye gravy.
I have forgotten how to crochet, but I think it wouldn’t take much of a refresher to remember it again, and I sew whenever the time allows.... I am actually working on my Christmas costume today - ha! Yes, you read that right. Christmas costume. Every year I have a “Christmas With The Bitches” fundraiser, and I have a costume. I’m that girl.
Anyway, after my morning of sewing, feeding animals, washing out and refilling water troughs, walking dogs, and planning out the next 52 days (until Christmas :) ), I will be attending a doggie wedding fundraiser with several friends. Check tomorrow’s post for pictures. I imagine it will be super cute. After that I am hoping to squeeze in a hay run since it is SO COLD and the horses have yet to get in their winter coats - horses stay warm by grazing, so hay = warmth..
Happy Sunday y’all! Hope to see you at the pup wedding in a bit!
