How has the month been treating you? I hope that it has been stress free and filled with some fun.
After my trip to Connecticut I went to Texas and had a lovely night catching up with a friend from my days at Lechters. We had amazing Fajitas at http://www.culinaryhouston.com/2014/03/fajitas-mama-ninfas-original-recipe.html
in Houston. Unfortunately I didn't take any pics.
On Sunday Rich and I hit up some local holiday markets to do some Christmas shopping.
There were wonderful pottery, tea, and other food vendors. It made it easy to cross some shopping off my list.
Since it was a beautiful day we headed over to Saxpahaw, NC for their holiday market.
I was able to catch up with my friends from when I worked at the health department in Greensboro. We attended the production of Beautiful Star at Triad Stage in Greensboro.
The next weekend started a week of vacation for me. It started off with the Piedmont Heritage Sampler Guild's Christmas party.
I also caught up with my friend Susan.
Monday I had 2 Doctor appointments, took my Mom shopping, ordered new glasses and got a haircut. It was so nice to have a day to take care of all of this stuff.
On Tuesday I headed up the road to Williamsburg with the Louise (Cherished Stitches) and Robin (Threads Of Memory) for a couple of days in Williamsburg.
I love walking around Williamsburg and looking at the decorations.
Louise made me this treasure for Christmas.
The goal of the trip to Williamsburg was to take it easy and relax and we accomplished that. We walked around the antique mall and had tea at the tearoom there.
We went to Haus Tirol to do some stash enhancement.
It was a perfect getaway.
I received another wonderful package from Marly over at Samplers and Santas.
I go back to work tomorrow and it is going to be a struggle! I will then be off from the 24th to the new year.
Thanks for catching up with me. I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas week filled with friends and family!!
