After all we've been doing, I sort of feel like we're all convalescing. lol! But it's Mia who is the convalescent. The poor baby had to have her spaying Friday. It was so hard to leave her at the vet's. I was crying, couldn't help it. She had to stay overnight there -- standard procedure. I picked her up Saturday morning, and boy were we happy to see each other! The poor thing is definitely convalescing. They don't give her pain meds so that she knows how she's feeling and knows to take it easy and not bounce off the walls. She's gone from a bouncy kitten to an old cautious codger, poor thing. Hopefully she'll be back to normal soon.
But before we get to all of the Mia pics, here is Guarding Eden. First a pic where it looks like it's done.
Ah well, you can see a bare corner there. So thus you see it's not quite finished yet.
It's getting there though, slowly but surely. Thank goodness for audiobooks and Christmas music to push me along! As you can see, I decided I needed to do the fill in around the verse. I'm glad I did. I like it with the fill in a lot better.
On Saturday, I stayed home with our convalescing Mia to make sure she was ok (she'd just gotten home from the vet's) and the two boys took off north to our favorite Christmas tree farm and cut down our Christmas tree. They were aiming for a modest sized tree this year and they succeeded compared to other years. But it's still a nice size. We got it all in the house and decorated, Mia being very curious the whole time. Here it is all decorated with a large boy child standing in front of it. (We left the breakable decorations off this year just in case.)
(Yes, the boy child is wearing one black sock and one white. He's decided he likes to wear mismatched socks. lol!)
Here's what Mia was doing during a lot of the tree decorating.
Poor baby needs her rest. But she does take time to do some of her usual activities. She loves the father type's coffee. Unfortunately for her, the father type's mug doesn't allow for very good licking.
She's so cute!
I won a couple of prizes recently -- both were comment number 3, so I guess 3 is my lucky number. First from Bunny Hill Designs I won some charm packs of Anne's new Lily and Will fabric line. Anne also sent some yummy candy. Mia wants some. lol! Thank you, Anne!
Next, from the Thread Gatherer, I won a lovely stash of Cecelia's yummy products. Look at all the wonderful things!
I have to find a use for them all! Thank you, Cecilia!
Finally a quiet week ahead. Just a couple more weeks and the boy child will have Christmas break. The girl child should be home this weekend -- but of course she hasn't told us her plans yet. :D
A final picture of Mia. Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I love our visits!
