Christmas Time is Here, Happiness and Cheer


Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year
Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share
Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there
Christmas time

Happy Thursday!  This has been a very busy week for me.  Monday began as a cookie baking kind of day, more M&M party cookies and more Chocolate Chippers!

Then, Tuesday was our Senior Center Christmas Party!  What fun, we had a pianist playing Christmas carols and everyone was given a song lyric sheet to participate.  Santa made an appearance and handed out Washington State red delicious apples, yummy!!  I helped at the Chinese Auction Table, 50/50 Raffle and Quilt Raffle tables!  The Christmas lunch was ham, mashed potatoes, broccoli, roll and butter and black forest cake.  After that was over, a trip to the big city, Meadville, was in order!!  Groceries, stop at Home Depot and the Quilt Shop, and home again!!

Wednesday, was quilt day at the center so back there again, had time to cut out a new table runner I'm making, very little time to sew though since we had a special speaker from Vorsick's Backyard Bee Farm in Linesville.  This was a very informative talk on how honey bees make honey, how the females rule the hives, how the Queen bee is in charge of the hive and lays all the eggs, and how they determine who the Queen is!  I've linked up their website if you just click on the red Vorsick's link above.  She also sold raw honey so of course, I had to get myself a jar of Japanese Knotwood, my favorite for sweetening my tea in the evening!

We sampled all of the honey and by the time I finished doing that I needed a cup of coffee, no sugar needed!!

After leaving there,  a quick trip to Andover OH was in order.  Had to fill up the truck with gas, it is only $2.29 in OH as opposed to the $2.45 in PA.  Then, homeward bound again!!

So, I promised to wrap up my Meyer Home Christmas 2016 decorations, so here they are!!
