Friday's service just couldn't have gone better. The new columbarium grounds at the National Cemetery were just beautiful. Everything came off just as it should and everyone felt good about it. They were laid to rest side by side together in the same one and somehow it just seemed fitting. After the service we all had lunch at one of mom's favorite restaurants ~ Mimi's ~ and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves there. After that two of my sister's and I headed out for the sale at Joannes. We had SUCH a good time, and we were in there for over two hours, loss amongst the fabric's. I think I mentioned that I am going to do quite a bit of sewing for my younger sister's first grandchild who is due in April. So I helped her pick out fabric for blankets, nighties, burp cloths and bibs. Probably won't get started on this until after the holiday's, but who knows. I might whip up a blanket or two in December if the mood should strike. Sat hubby and I put up our Christmas tree. I know that seems ridiculous, but we only have one more week-end until we leave for New Mexico, and like I said by the time we get back we will be into December and I want to have decorating out of the way. Our tree is kind of big, I have hundreds of ornaments I have collected over the years, and it is quite the little project for us to get this done. It took us about 3 and half hours from start to finish, though we weren't moving really fast, haha. After we finished we were feeling quite accomplished so we headed out for movie and dinner out to reward ourselves, lol. We saw About Time and honestly I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have seen many time travel movies so I figured yeah, yeah, ~ hubby likes these for some reason ~ but it was honestly pretty good. I would recommend it. After some good Mexican food we headed home.
Sun found us down in San Diego for church. I sat in the back with Larissa and the baby Vinny, and held him all through worship. I was singing and Vinny was loving it and singing along. Hubby snapped a picture or two so let me show you...

After service and lunch we had a few errands to run so we headed on home. Yesterday my sister Diane who lives in the local mountains came to hang out for a couple of days with me as she too has a hair appointment this morning. We decided to spend the day sewing so I drug out my old machine for her to use. I decided it was time to finally begin work on the onesies for the babies which honestly I have kind of been dreading as the embroidery part of the machine always seems to give me issues. Sure enough, problem after problem was occurring and we finally loaded up my machine and headed into the shop not sure if I wasn't going to demand my money back. I was soo frustrated! HOWEVER, I wasn't there long when I figured out that once again it was an OPERATOR error....sigh! But! I think I MAY have it down. I have completed 3 shirts so let me show you....

I have a lot to get done sewing wise the rest of this week, so I doubt I will get another post up this week. I will definitely visit as always, and hope you are all focusing on our many, many blessings. I do hope to get up a post soon focusing on mine! Blessings to you all! Debbie
