The last present that I was working on Christmas Eve was a bookmark I made for Kenny.
I finished it up just before he came home. As with all cross stitch projects that I make it takes me much longer than I think. :-)
Late yesterday afternoon we wanted to get out of the house for a bit so naturally we took a drive past the townhouse. We just couldn't believe that the painters were working on Christmas Day!! They were painting the front doors. All were painted except ours but I'm sure it's red now!
Some of you may remember me mentioning the "Homeless Man" who isn't homeless who lives in town and panhandles down on the corner of Route 1. Yesterday leaving the townhouse just a couple of blocks away at the red light, who do we see but our "Homeless Man" standing there panhandling!! Of all the other corners to pick what are the odds of him picking a new corner 12 miles away right by our new house? Crazy huh? His little blue car was parked up the road - so now I call him the "Commuting Homeless Man."
Today I spent a part of the day reading and finishing Alexander McCall Smith's latest book in the 44 Street Scotland Series called The World According to Bertie. This is the 4th in the series and it was as good as all the rest. Bertie, a 6 year old little boy is my favorite character in this series. He has quite a mother to put up with.
This is one part that had me laughing.
"I think you should spend more time with Olive," said Irene. "She's a very nice girl, and I know that you like her."
Bertie shook his head. "I don't like Olive, Mummy. I hate her."
"Now, Bertie!" scolded Irene. "That's simply not true."
Bertie sighed. When he told the truth, as he had just done, he was accused of lying. But if he lied, and said that he liked Olive, his mother would nod her approval. The world, he thought, was a very confusing place.
Another Bertie thought.
I think the world is nice. I think that it is very sad that there are people who are unkind to one another. I also think that it is sad that there are people who want to kill other people just because they do not like them. I think that we should share things, and not be selfish.
The book was due at the library today so when Kenny came home from work we dropped it off and then went out to eat at Five Guys.
We got the movie Click from Netflix to watch for tonight and I'm going to start a quick and easy knitting project that I should finish up pretty quick.
I hope you are all enjoying your Friday. :-)
