A week...

It's hard to believe I have been home a week..
 .It's been a busy week....
we had the tree to decorate...
 I  had presents to make... 
I thought I would make up some natural soaps and cleaners 
for those people who have everything....
I got a start on my Christmas baking..
We had some grandchild time..
Never to early to start learning to play chess?
I've forced myself to get out for a walk...
 (I don't want to mention it ...but it has not been a warm week... it's been in the -20C range... ) 
We walked the river valley...there were birds galore on this feeder and the birds would fly real close by you...but I didn't get any in my picture:)
We went to the Devonian Botanic Gardens...
where they had a Luminaria Walk...
with thousands of candles lighting the Japanese Garden

It was a crisp evening...but a nice experience for the Christmas season.

Well I guess I've packed a lot in the past week...

Happy Monday to you all!!


  1. Looks so pretty to be in the north for Christmas and I love the natural soaps!!! sandie

  2. If your photos are any indication, the luminaria walk would be divine.

    Enjoy all of these pre-holiday preparations.
