I had a busy day yesterday (I'm going to try to strike that word from my vocabulary. I don't think being busy is all that great of a thing to boast about.) I had to take Choco to the vet for annual shots and she was a very good dog while she was there and all day stuck in the car. She absolutely loves riding in the car and will hang her head out the windown like she's the admiral of a ship setting out on a voyage. Seems sort of subdued when the car stops though. I bought her Chicken nuggets at Mac Donald's on the way home.
Kindergarten in the morning and the children were going through their dress rehearsal for this Saturday's Christmas program. Every year it is nearly the same (different songs) and I did write about it last Christmas so I'll just show a quick picture. Yes, the older class (the top three rows) are holding real candles. I do pray while the program is going on and I do keep a bucket of water handy and I am very thankful when the Christmas program is over. I wish you could hear the beautiful children's voices mingling with the mothers choir. It really brings tingles up my spine.
I also had a stop at the pre-school and they gave me an absolutely gorgeous Cyclamen! That will grace my entryway for the rest of the winter season. I hope the cats don't decide to play with it. Plants don't last very long at my house though I remember when I was in college I filled my dorm room with ferns and spider plants and wandering vines. Now all those leafy things get eaten by the cats... As I recall from last year, they didn't like the taste of Cyclamen.
And finally in the evening I worked on another block for my Mini Round Robin quilt group. I won't show what I'm adding on to this block. This is only the original block and one more has been added already. We forgot to tell people to specify a theme so I don't know what this lady really has in mind... I'm adding a chic flower block. (Whatever that might be.)
