Saturday Roundup

This week has been a busy one, full of family, laughter and food. Now things will get back to the normal boring lifestyle Harvey and I lead.

Kurt left yesterday. He is visiting friends north of Regina. Kris left early this morning. The house is quiet and the silence is strange.

Christmas Day went very well as usual I got spoiled. I always open my birthday gifts Christmas day as the sons always want to see me open them. They have most times already left by the time my birthday rolls around on the 29th of this month.

I thought I would share my haul with you all.

Kris got me a Google Hub for Christmas. I can use this in the kitchen to time my baking, play music when I am doing dishes, and even look up recipes without having to print them off.

Kurt got me this lovely angel for my collection.

Then came the birthday gifts.

Kurt knows how much I enjoy Margaret Atwood and so he got me my very own copies of The Handmaid's Tale, and the Testaments. He also got me some emergency items for my vehicle.

Kris got me a swift. 

Here I am using it.
I love it. It makes winding those pesky skeins of yarn so very simple. The picture of me is not too flattering, but that is life.

Harvey was told not buy me anything that the new chair was gift enough. Still he figured I needed something under the tree from him.

A gorgeous bangle bracelet. I told him he should not have spent so much, but he said I am worth it. I think I will keep him. 

Spending lots of time using up items in the fridge. Slowly, oh so slowly items are being used up. I don't think we will go out for supper this month. Instead I will use what we have and make some wonderful meals.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.


  1. Happy Birthday!

    I'm sure you'll enjoy the Google hub. I have a small mini and love it. Have a great day!

  2. I am so un-techy, I don't even know what a Google Hub is! -chuckle- At first, I thought it was a tablet. Those, we have. My husband's eyesight is so bad that he can not comfortably read a book. But with e-books on the tablet, he can make the print as large as he needs.

    What a lovely bracelet. And sweet words to go with it.
